My daughter has been going to this preschool for a couple of years. Among the pros are reasonable prices, convenient hours, the facility is very nice and well-maintained. The teachers seem nice. Also they have good security. The biggest cons are the fact that they're understaffed. That significantly limits their activities in my opinion. The don't go to place outside very much which is another big con. They don't do many crafts. The children are cooped up inside all day, when my daughter came home she had so much unused energy she would be jumping off the walls. I'm not sure about the curriculum. I have yet to see clear results from their learning activities.

This preschool is a wonderful place to start your child in a eary learning environment. The teachers are very caring and knowledgeable on teaching children on an individual level. My child had great learning experinces at the preschool. I really appreciated the preschool that I could go to work everyday and know my child was in a caring,loving and teaching place. I can't say enough good things about this wonderful school!!!!!!

This is a great place to start kids out. Loved all the teachers!! Loving and caring environment. My kids are now in Middle school and are at the top of their classes. I feel this is largely due to the great preschool foundation they recieved at the preschool.

Pros: the school is very convenient in terms of location and flexible hours. Facilities are very cute and well-maintained. Teachers are very friendly and especially for the younger classrooms, very attentive to 'their' children. Cons: the classrooms are closed to parental involvement, and it's difficult to get good information on what happens in class on a daily (or even weekly!) basis. Parents cannot even come to the holiday celebrations, except for the carefully orchestrated shows at Christmas and the end of year. Also to consider: while the school does not label itself as a Christian school, the curriculum it uses is explicitly Christian (Beka books). This is not terribly noticeable in the preschool materials. In the kindergarten class however, the social studies book emphasizes Church and Jesus. Nothing inflammatory or controversial, but certainly presumptuous.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
