My son currently attends nursery school here 2 days a week and it is incredible! I love his teacher and the environment he is in. I would recommend this school to anyone, special needs or not. It is an atmosphere that encourages diversity and gentle ways of teaching kids what they need to know.
My son was referred to this school. He is in the preschool class. The teachers are very in touch with the needs of the students. The school is definitely more then just academic. Students enjoy a wide variety of structured activities (from art work in classroom to outdoors playground activities). Those students who are emerging with their skills received closer attention in order to help them succeed. The teachers are very caring and flexible to help both the parents and the students. I am very please that I have chosen this school for my son. The entire staff is very friendly in demeanor. I would recommend this school to all the parents out there.
