AMAZING SCHOOL!! Hands down the best & only place to take your child for quality early childhood education. Fantastic staff, loving teachers, and owners/operators who put you first. They have been around for nearly 30 years and I am happy to say I am taking my child where I went to school! For previous review that mentioned viruses "hello welcome to childhood!" Child who are in a preschool/daycare environment are on average likely to get 7 - 10 viruses within the first year (medical fact). They have yet to develop immunity so children are likely to be on a constant roller coaster of illness & wellness; just asked any pediatrician or better yet any experienced parent. I love that I am a product of this school and my child is too! It just shows that First School is doing something right! Do yourself and your child a favor enroll now!!

You can't find a better school for your child than First School of the Desert! The teachers and staff are providing quality early childhood education which will be the bedrock of your child'sfuture. The owners Mark & Dorothy are the most genuine people I have ever met! They hand out their own personal cell phone numbers and talk to parents night or day... can't say that about any other preschool owners out there! I love attending all the school functions the Christmas program to the graduation ceremonies all top notch and fun for the whole family. LOVE LOVE LOVE this school! I won't trust my child's care or education to anyone else!

Hip-Hip-Hooray for First School of the Desert!!! This preschool was heaven sent for my family. Oh-my-God I can t say enough good things about First School. I m a professional working mom and I was so worried leaving my little Samantha for the first time but the ladies at First School made everything perfect! My daughter learned so much there and she absolutely loved her teachers. Samantha has moved up to kindergarten and is at the top of her class thanks to First School of the Desert! I just found out that I am due in October with my second child and I just can t wait to enroll my new baby in First School. My family will be with First School of the Desert as long as we continue to have children!

Typically I m reserved when it comes to offering an opinion but my dealings with First School of the Desert merits an evaluation. Simply put: First School of the Desert provides the kind of service that will make just about any parent extremely satisfied! I say just about any parent because there are always those people that believe they have been ordained to complain. For the rest of us First School practices old fashion work ethics. The teachers are compassionate and make the school day fun (and safe) for the children. The school grounds are relatively new and always maintained well. My sons are at home when they attend preschool. If you are like me, you can t put a price tag on trust and I totally trust First School of the Desert. Translated: First School of the Desert is invaluable!
