Diablo Hills Country School4

Diablo Hills Country School is an excellent choice for preschool. My 2 kids have been attending for about a year. I have been very happy with the school. My children have learned a lot of great skills. The curriculum is age appropriate and fun. I feel the Bridge program has prepared my child for kindergarten. We love the assistant director/teacher in the 2 year old class. She goes above and beyond and works very well with the children. The school is kept clean and is child centered. We are very happy here!
We really liked this school at first and enrolled him in the afternoon program because it worked better with our schedules..we were told that the afternoon program was just like the morning program but in the afternoon, which is what you would expect right? The morning programs may be awesome, but the afternoon program was horrible it is mostly kids that are there all day and did the "preschool" program in the morning and are there for daycare in the afternoon until their parents get off work. My son was there for preschool, to actually learn something, not just play and be watched. I didn't need afternoon daycare and I certainly didn't need to pay for it. I was paying for preschool and I expected a preschool experience..my son actually forgot his alphabet and numbers while going here and didn't learn a thing. The school itself is nice, and maybe they teach in the morning programs, but beware of the afternoon program unless you are just looking for daycare.
My child is 4 years old and is in his second year at the school. He has learned so much attending this pre-school. In addition, the play area outside is very nice. This school seems to be designed with children in mind.
Excellent First Impression. Staff Warm & Friendly. Clean, Learning Environment. 2 yr Instructor - superior, hands-on, structured yet fun, personal interest-photos of kids, tracks individual progress, focuses on socializtion, strong emphasis on learning & having fun (good for 2 yr olds). Secure campus. Diversity of students.
