All of our children have attended Prairie Hill. Ms. Katherine and her staff go above and beyond to connect with each and every child daily in their program. They instill the love of learning and play while preparing these little ones for kindergarten. This gem in Zimmerman has inspired and empowered our children to reach their full potential.
