School Reviews

Just want to give kudos to Walnut Creek Academy! We love our school so much. The teachers are kind, patient, loving, and amazing educators. I never ever worry while my daughter is there, and she absolutely loves school. They have made modifications to allow her to color at recess on the days she doesn't want to play on the playground. She truly feels like she matters at WCA and is loved like family. If you're looking for a preschool or private school, WCA is an excellent one!
