My daughter attended 3 day 2 year old preschool this past year and will be attending 5 day 3 year old preschool in the fall. After much research, we chose SHCA based on what they offered even though there are plenty of closer schools. My daughter absolutely adores her teachers (Ms. Jessica and Ms. Jennifer are amazing!) and loved the school. She learns new things every day and loves her "friends" in her class. I wouldn't consider sending my daughter anywhere else.
