I wanted to make the best decision possible for my daughter, it's a lot of pressure in determining the best academic choice for your child at an early age. I am still understanding how my daughter learns at age 4. I visited the school and walking out of her interview; I knew I had made the best choice for our family. I literally cried with relief knowing that I was doing all I could for her. This school has been wonderful, it's our first year, and I am impressed. The school has great faculty; the parents are involved, and the programming is impressive either at no cost or minimal cost to parents. I would say, visit, learn more, it might be a great fit. It was for us!
