Just the letter of re enrollment for next, which will be the last year makes me want to cry, because I know how fast it will go. This place is like a home away from home. My daughter loves it so much. I'm so lucky to have found this place. I feel so at peace leaving my child here. They really have it nailed on running a loving, nurturing & caring preschool for not only the kids, but the parents too. It really is a great foundation. Joyce & the teachers are just wonderful & the children are all so happy there. It's a very warm & friendly place. Like a mini educational disneyland. :0)

Westcliff is a down to earth developmental preschool that has been in this community for over 30 years. Hand picked teachers, loving & nurturing with lots of knowledge and patience for young children! Days are filled with a balance of indoor and outdoor activities and learning environments that allow kids to be kids and learn thru fun and playing. Children are prepped for kindergarten and grade school whether they go to public or many of the private schools near by. Great families, children and community!

If you are searching for a preschool for your child in order to properly prepare him/her for kindergarten, look no further. The program at Westcliff is fantastic, inviting, nurturing and caring and works with the developmental age of each child. Parents are encouraged to ask questions and be part of the child's experience at Westcliff. We have taken advantage of this and the staff at Westcliff have been instrumental in giving wonderful and effective advice to use at home, not just at school. Joyce Smith, the owner and director, is an excellent resource and her door is always open. Honestly, I cannot say enough about this school and I am so happy my children have attended.

Westcliff is more than just a preschool. It's a place where you can send your child and know 100% in your heart that you are giving them the best preschool experience there is! The teachers are amazing and the classroom environment is warm, inviting and nurturing. I can't say enough good things about this school and its director. We are so blessed to have found this gem for our three boys! We have made friends to last a lifetime and my children have a solid foundation to grow from.

My three kids went here and wow was it the best choice for our family! My kids not only were really ready for the next step into the primary grades but they learned to love school at this wonderful sweet school. The staff was amazing and supportive. The owner Joyce Smith was and has been an excellent resource to me as a parent even as my kids have grown. She is well respected in the early childhood education field. We love Westcliff!
