My 4 year eld son attended CKP this summer for the summer program and loved it! We were so impressed with Mr. Tyler as his teacher. Each week there was a different theme to keep the kids engaged. The room was bright, colorful and inviting with different areas for various activities. The owners are very kind and welcoming. I would whole heartedly recommend this school.
My daughter is in the school since is opened up and I am really happy with it. The teachers and owners are great ,and they are always there when parents ask a question. The place is very clean and comfortable with enough space to have activities. Also ,they provide a lot of extra activities such as Spanish, Yoga, art gallery and science.My daughter not only learns a lot ,but also is so happy there !
This is one of the best preschools in Chandler! My son is in the 2's class with Ms.Allison and he absolutely LOVES it! He cries on the days he doesn't have school because he wants to go. He's learning so much and is not charged extra for having yoga and spanish every week. THe owners are amazing people who put the needs of the kids and the community first. I've been at other preschools where their main priority is money, and you could tell. I don't quite understand the negative review for not having a playground. I've never toured a preschool and chosen one based on a playground. I LOVE that they focus on academics all day and you don't pay for them to play at recess or to eat lunch. They still find the time for meaningful exercise and fine motor skill exercises. SO happy they opened up last year! It's been a great year so far!
From the moment you walk through the doors of CK, you can feel and see the focus of the school is on the children. The hallway is lined with each student's Art Masterpiece of the month. This preschool has a loving and nurturing environment! All of the teachers have early childhood experience as well as degrees. I love the 3 1/2 hours of no screen time, as this encourages imagination, interaction and cooperation amongst everyone in the school. Each spacious classroom has, at most, 12 students, and has plenty of opportunity for play, and exploration. The monthly theme for the school always creates many different learning opportunities and integrating science into the themes is fun. CK does a great job of creating well rounded citizens with weekly character education. Weekly yoga and Spanish lessons are also creative learning opportunities. If you are looking for a true preschool, not a daycare, then CK is a great educational building block for your child's future!
Curious Kids is an excellent preschool. They are nurturing and challenge my child everyday. They teach the whole child from science and handwriting to yoga and Spanish. The classrooms are huge, plenty of room to move and play. Being new to the area I was unaware the Chandler School District teaches D'nealian handwriting Curious Kids teaches this method to ensure a smooth transition to kindergarten. I couldn't be happier with our decision.
