Stratford School - Danville 5

There is only great things to say about this school! We absolutely love Miss Willow, the Principal at the Stratford Danville campus. She not only stands outside to greet every single student entering the school, but has something nice to say to the child as well as the parent/caregiver with the student. By doing so, she instills such a feeling of community and caring. It shows in how the faculty at this campus interacts with the children. An embracing warmth is exuded which creates such enthusiasm and joy for the child and his/her family. I approve of Stratford because of its highly competitive and comprehensive curriculum, however I LOVE this campus because of the people that work there and how they make us feel. Miss Willow goes beyond what you would expect in a principal or teacher. She has such an enthusiastic optimism, you can't help but be drawn in and walk away happier for the experience. Her natural exuberance and true love for the children who walk through the doors of Stratford is what truly staggers you. She honestly loves these kids and whole heartedly wants whats best for them and for you. Her knowledge in early childhood education is based on practice and experience. We end up being better parents for it, we end up being better people by just knowing her. Miss Willow is a treasure and an honest gem, that sparkle she imparts is felt all day long and long after our children attend Stratford.

Miss Mina, my son's Pre-K teacher, has fostered such pride in my son for everything from academic learning to correct classroom behavior. I commend Miss Mina for teaching my son not just his letters and phonics, but how to be a positive citizen in society. He went from entering her class at the beginning of the year not knowing anything to reading a book by himself by halfway through the year. He absolutely loves her and I believe it's her truly empathic way of teaching, reaching out to each child individually that allowed my son to flourish under her care. We couldn't have envisioned a greater teacher!

Ms. Mina has taught my son for the past two years as he was not ready for Kindergarten due to being newly five and required an additional year to develop emotionally. Her love for my child is like no other. She took the time to understand him, learned how to motivate a very quite, sometimes distant personality and delivered to me a confident, humorous, relaxed little guy that only a true love and compassion of a teacher could bring out. I can never thank Ms. Mina enough for her heart as she is the epitome of an outstanding teacher.

One would not be a teacher at Stratford if they were not effective. Ms. Willow would never allow that to happen on her watch.

The teachers know their student. Many kids under the age of 5 develop different times and the teachers know how to encourage the ones that need the help and foster those that have already developed.

Their method of "role playing" when children make mistakes is a positive reinforcement that enables the child to understand and correct a negative behavior.

It's all about leadership and Ms. Willow exemplifies all the positive characteristics to her staff which they all pass along to your child.

Have been a proud parent of this campus for the past five years with 2 children. Words can not express what Stratford has meant to our family. This campus has exceptional leadership along with the most competent staff members that become family members to your child. Yes, the academics are superb and beyond any other schools around, but the social aspect of this environment is above any I have ever experienced or have heard of. If you want your child to love who they are, feel happy and confident that they are being taught, loved, and nurtured daily, Stratford Danville BlackHawk Campus is your new home. You will not regret your decision.
