School Reviews

I sent my daughter there for the first time last year. She was in Ms. Gina's class for 3 year olds. She had separation anxiety and a hard time letting me leave. Ms. Gina would pick her up and hold her and hug her and play with her until she felt better. I love this school because I sincerely feel that everyone in the program genuinely cares about my child, her education and her well-being. She is now in Mrs. Laurie's Preschool 4's class and absolutely loves it. I have two younger children that I plan on sending through their program. My only complaint is that they don't teach grades higher than Kindergarten!
