I love this school! My daughter is in preschool and she wakes up at 4AM because she is so excited to come to school. She can tell me her numbers, shapes, colors, write and they are learning how to read. Today, she came home and told me they were making pudding in class to learn how to measure! She is four! Her teacher is the best preschool teacher. She dances, sings, plays and has a wonderful set of classmates. The parents are so welcoming and helpful. She attends our afterschool care program and she loves it! She works on her homework, plays, has a snack and makes crafts. I couldn't ask for a better place to send my child. It is also so affordable. This school is a blessing to me and my family.
