My son was at VMA for 3yrs and I felt I am more than qualified to provide a just and honest review. My son started VMA when he was 4yrs old. He was in Butterfly class for a year and went to Dragonfly with Ms. Quintero. We decided to let him stay with Ms. Quintero for another year since his birthday was at the borderline of 1st grade. This was the best decision ever. During the 2nd year stay with Ms. Quintero, my son accelerated on his academic skills. From all the fine motor skill games and activities provided at Butterfly class, my son had good training to write cursive sentences with precision. I must say he has beautiful penmanship. Every week's spelling and writing test prepared him for 1st grade and his confidence level. Not only just English, I was trying to teach my son simple math and I got so fed up that I gave up on him. Amazingly, Ms. Quintero taught him addition, subtraction, fractions... and he came back knowing math, science, geography, history, famous people, money, time/clock, Spanish... many more subject matters. The only down side, playground was small. Thanks Ms. Quintero, Ms. Shirley, and miss Jessica. We'll be back with our daughter next year.
