My great-grandson is currently enrolled in Corkran's Pre3 Class. The school's learning curriculum is just what my grandson needs to grow. The staff is professional, caring, and well-qualified. What we were teaching my grandson before going to Corkran has been enhanced a thousand times over. The school's Director and other teachers are the real deal. Thank you Corkran for all that you do.

My children attended Corkran starting with the two-year-old program through kindergarten. The staff is warm, caring, and knowledgeable in dealing with preschoolers. My children loved going to school each day and left Corkran Preschool and Kindergarten with the necessary skills to start their learning journey elsewhere. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a family atmosphere where their child will thrive!
