My daughter loved her preschool year at Desert Sun. They have so many fun ways to learn and explore. It is a perfect environment for children to learn. My daughter was always covered in paint, mud or who-knows- what, but she loved it and so did I! The teachers really cared and treated each child with love and respect.

Desert Sun is by far one of the best things I ever did for my kids. They were there for 5 years, and still talk about how much they loved going there. The are both in middle school now and doing great. I attribute a lot of their success to the caring and wonderful teachers and staff at Desert Sun. It is a wonderful environment where kids really do learn through play. Thank you for creating and maintaining such a great school!

Desert Sun is a fantastic place to nurture a child as they grow through the most developmental years of their life. Each staff memeber cares about each child and building a strong parent-home school connection. I have 2 boys who began in the parent toddler classes and have since moved onto Kinder and Pre K. I feel they are building a life long self esteem, creativity, & knowledge all through a fun home feel environment. There are no bright lights, computers going crazy and a boring sterile environment. The kids feel at home comfortable and enjoy learning with the old school house type feel. I would send any kid in the world here! Don't hesitate do it~

Our daughter is off to college. What an investment in her future! Yet, not as important as the first investment we made in her education! For the first five years of her life, we attended Desert Sun Child Developmental Center. We attribute our daughter's self confidence, assertiveness, problem solving and reasoning ability, self discipline, independence, conflict resolution skills and many of her strong qualities to the foundational years spent at this developmental preschool. The staff, leadership and generations of parents over the years are to be commended for staying the course and implementing true child development with integrity. As an educator myself, for 34 years, I would not have wanted my child to attend anywhere else. She blossomed in those early years from parent toddler classes to her transitional kindergarten class. NAEYC knows quality developmental programs and actively recognizes Desert Sun as a strong school of choice. My only regret is the preschool years sped by so fast. -Beth Lang former Desert Sun Parent

I don't know why Desert Sun only received 4 stars for teacher quality when its excellent and dedicated staff is what sets it apart from most other schools. I have had two children attend Desert Sun and they have benefitted immensely from their interactions with the teachers there. I know that one reason they have flourished in grade school is because they received such a great head start. They love to learn thanks to Desert Sun teachers!

My son is about to start his 3rd year at Desert Sun. We did 2 years in the Parent/Toddler program, and he is about to start the 3 year old program. We have had a wonderful experience. The teachers, staff, and facilities are great. Desert Sun is all about learning through play, and for my active little guy that is the perfect philosophy. It is giving him an excellent foundation for learning - he loves school.

My son, now in Desert Sun's Kindergarten program has been enjoying Desert Sun since the Parent/Toddler interaction class. My daughter is on her 3rd year at Desert Sun and is gearing up to enter the Transitional Kindergarten class. We have thoroughly enjoyed Desert Sun for many years. Both my children love school, thanks to Desert Sun. The program is hands-on and play based - perfect for young children. The teachers are wonderful and so fantastic with the kids. We've enjoyed being part of the Desert Sun community!

Desert Sun has been a tremendous part of my family community. The environment is greater than 'just a school'. Among the strong sense of community is an environment that encourages learning through discovery and play. This results in individual development as well as defining a strong foundation for social and emotional growth. Desert Sun works with the whole child and my little boy is loving it.

This is an excellent school that focuses on the development of the child. It has a developmentally appropriate curriculum and child learn through play. My son is in the 3 year old class and he wants to go to school every day. Parents are welcome in the class and are encouraged to help in other ways. The parenting tips and classes that are offered are very helpful.

Fun preschool, but it felt like I was spending $$ for a 2-3 hour playdate. It was also rather chaotic. Children who need a more structure and focus might have a hard time finding their place.
