Country Village Pre-School & Kindergarten5

My children have been coming to Country Village for 3 years (Full time) and I have never had any complaints. Every teacher is very communicative with my husband and I and the office staff is very welcoming and go above and beyond to accommodate us. My children come home and love to tell me what they did in class, who they played with. I love the philosophy of the school, "learning through play". They have a barn yard with a pig, goat, chicken, and bunny. Their science room is full with reptiles as well. When I drop off my children I know they are being well taken care of and loved.
My 3 kids attend Country Village and we couldn't be happier. The teachers and staff are really care about the kids. My kids learned a LOT, and have a lot of fun. They can't wait to go to school every morning! They have three different play areas per age (0-2, 3-4 and 4 and up) so it's very safe. They also have a Science room and a petting zoo, which my kids LOVE. They offer two snacks (morning and afternoon) and you have to send lunch. Overall, a Great preschool! Highly recommended.
The school claims to provide snack and milk but they really don't. They take food out of kids lunch bag and give it to them for snack. One child didn't have any snack in her lunch bag, so they gave her her lunch (warm pasta with meat) as her snack. None of the kids got the cracker/fruits/milk that the school was supposed to be providing for snack the morning that I observed. Washing hands, from what I observed, was simply putting hands under running water with no soap for a few seconds. It makes me wonder whether they really do any of the other things that they are supposed to be doing, like applying sunscreen on children before the recess upon parent's request.
I would recommend this to any parent with a child at the age of 1 and up. I enrolled my son when he was 2 years old and was amazed at how much he has flourished under their care. He entered knowing maybe 2 or 3 words to having an extensive vocabulary and amazing understanding and knowledge of the world around him. His creativity has astounded me. This place really takes care of the children and kept me informed of his daily activities. The teachers are all so wonderful about caring for each child and also providing specific information for what each child did that day.
I havebeen extremely happy with Country Village Preschool. The Administration and staff are always friendly and caring. The classrooms are currently being repainted and upgraded and look beautiful! New resources have been added that are a great benefit for the children to learn developmentally above and beyond my expectations. I have definitely recommended Country Village to everyone. Oh Ya....they have an incredible barnyard with animals , as well as a Science room that is awesome. What a great experience for all!!!!
I have sent my 3 children here and this is my 7th year at the school - my 4 year old will continue next year. We have been happy with the facility, the programming and abundant love and quality care for the children. Their enrichment program is the best. We all love Country Village.
My children have been at the school for 2 years and we have been extremely happy with the education, development and care that our children have received. We would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a caring and loving environment to look after your children.
Clean and modern-looking classrooms set against foothills of Foothill Ranch. Includes science center and small petting zoo. Play yard is big and separate yard for junior preschoolers. Our son attended one summer 6 wk program and for 1-yr. after. Teacher was nice. We didn't feel that there was any set curriculum followed it was just basically 3 hrs. of free-play time with intermitten, arts and crafts, snack-time, yard time. They do allow kids who aren't potty-trained to attend which is a plus. Play-yard and gate into yard didn't seem adequetly supervised before school started even though parents would be dropping kids off in the yard.
