We have one child at Childpeace and have had a fantastic experience. Both the administration staff and teaching staff are dialed, responsive and caring. Our child has had a supportive and open environment to thrive (even throughout the pandemic). We feel fortunate to be part of the Childpeace community.

We have two children enrolled at Childpeace and couldn't be happier with the program. We appreciate the non-testing oriented spirit of the school that allows our children to develop and learn in an atmosphere free of anxiety. The faculty are top shelf at all levels.
