Both our young children attend Forest Hills Preschool. We have been extremely pleased with the staff, the curriculum and the over all warm feel of the school. The director puts in much effort towards keeping structure, yet enough freedom for the young children. The teachers are very nurturing and the communication is never an issue. We are very lucky to have a well rounded place to care for our children.
My son went here when he was younger and now I am thinking about moving back closer to Martinez just for my daughter to attend. They are the only school I've found that I'm comfortable with. The parents are 100% involved and the teachers and staff love and care for all of the children. The children learn so much in a fun environment and are prepared for elementary school academically and socially.
I am very happy my daughter attends this school. She is 2.5 and loves it. In fact, every time I pick her up she says 'Mommy, I love school!' Marla, the director, is very engaged, attentive and in touch with everything that happens in the school. The teachers and staff are great and very loving. She is learning so much and I also appreciate that most of the parents are very involved in the school so there is a family atmosphere.
My son has thrived at Forest Hills the past two years. He started at another school when he was three, but after a month was miserable and promised he'd 'be a good boy' if he could stay home...I switched him immediately. Marla, the director, is very caring and understanding, and all of my son's teachers have been truly exceptional. I highly recommend this preschool - and their pre-k curriculum is outstanding!
