French Nursery School5

After touring several preschools in Atwater, & surrounding pre-k's in Hollywood for my 2 1/2 year old, I have to say the moment I stepped foot in French Nursery, I was pretty much blown away. I certainly did not expect a pre-k named French Nursery to have nothing to do with french culture. To my surprise, it is very culturally diverse which I absolutely loved, but more importantly they accept 2 1/2 year olds (& help with potty training!)YAY! Dr. Vardanyan was very welcoming,super approachable & answered any ? I threw at her. My tour was scheduled during classroom activities, so being able to see the kids in action was really great. But most impressive was seeing parents pick up there kids & witnessing 1st hand how well the teachers communicate w/ the parents (which was highly important to me and gave me a sense of comfort and reassurance). My son has been there for a little over a month and he is super happy, and looks forward to preschool everyday. Like most parents, it is really difficult to trust strangers with your child and have a true sense of assurance that your child is in good hands with responsible communicative adults. FNS has definitely met my pre-k expectations.
Being working couple, it was very important that we get a reliable and responsible person to take care of our lovely 3 years old daughter. The issue was complicated by the fact that, I do not trust nannies to take care of a child in a professional way. Fortunately, I came across French nursery school. The school admits children within the age bracket of two and six years. I first did a personal scrutiny about the school to ensure that my daughter was in the right hands in a safe environment. I established that the school runs on a professionally designed curriculum suitable for children in this age bracket and their security is first class. No doubts, I even recommend the school to my friends.
I have a 4 year old son that goes here, and he absolutely loves it. Loves his teachers and classmates. He was a little shy when I first enrolled him there, but he has really come in to his own. The staff is great with my kid, he's always happy to come home and show me what he learned that day.
We've had the most incredible experience! Currently my daughter is 3yrs and she loves loves her school she has learned numbers, letters, songs, dance, art and most importantly shes built confidence. Teachers are very attentive to all the students they make sure they eat and learn to be polite, share and care for each other. My daughter has gained a new family in this school I couldn't feel safer when I drop her off. Very happy to recommend french nursery school to any parent that is in need of great child care and excellent teaching methods
This school is a little treasure in the heart of L.A.! My daughter has been attending for 6 months now and she has flourished in her verbal and social skills. Maria the school director has a natural ability to calm kids and teach them proper manners and her teaching skills a ++++ my little one can count and recognize the numbers. I'm truly impressed I didn't think a 2yr would be so advanced.
I came across French Nursery on Google. The location is convenient, since I have to take the 101 to get to work anyway. I hop of the freeway to drop off my son and I'm right back onto the freeway. It's the same with coming home. My son loves Maria and the other teachers. They really take a load off my shoulders, and at a price that doesn't stress me out. Thanks Maria!
