Noah's Ark is wonderful. Judy Warren is a fantastic, hands-on pricipal. The teachers that work under Judy really give the 1-on-1 attention that has helped my daughter to excel. She is 3 y.o. and already knows the alphabet, numbers, shapes, and how to write her name.. The tuition is incredibly affordable. One star off due to the buildings being somewhat in need of repair cosmetically, but not to the point of danger to the children or lack of cleanliness. This school was recommended to me by a co-worker whose son attended (I work for the State of CA) when I was looking for daycare (which Noah's Ark also provides) and I have never regretted sending my daughter there. Don't judge this book by it's cover...it's the teachers, curriculum and affordability that really make it stand out.
