School Reviews

I love this school! My son started when he was 2 and before he was 3 he knew all his ABC''s, could spell his name, all colors, shapes and his vocaulary and manners are amazing because of this school and the time they take with these kids. Ms. Kristen is AMAZING with the 2yr old class and never limits them to only 2yr old work, she really teaches them as much as possible and even stuff the 3/4yr old class is doing. They have a great small facility, they helped tremendously with potty training, have an abundance of toys, music, they go to Chapel every Tuesday. It is just great school and the kid/teacher ratio is amazing. Great playground, organized meal times, nap times, quiet times. I can''t say enough good things about it. When my other son turns 2, I am signing him up right away!

My wife and I love this preschool. We been sending both of our son's to Shcpherd Center Preschool. The teacher are very good with the kids. Teaching them Christian values, both of are son's learn to reach before going on to Kindergarten. Every time I pick up my son David, when he see me, he first put his toysaway before we leave. I think that's great. The administrator is very friendly, they work great with the teachers and parents. If you would like to talk to me about this preschool, call me at my office, 626-388-1600 and ask for David B.
