I have had 3 children each attend Rocking Horse Ranch. They all wish they could stay/go back forever. The teachers are truly remarkable- each of them are amazing. The owner is an incredible person, both in and out of school. The kids are happy and love to be there. We love their teaching philosophy (learning through play) and each child who graduates from RHR is 100% prepared for kindergarten. My childrens' kinder teachers were always happy to hear they attended Rocking Horse, stating "oh, kids who go there are always the most well adjusted. They rarely have issues transitioning to kinder. Except maybe keeping their shoes on. Haha!" We love Rocking Horse and the entire staff. I'm only saddened by the fact that I have no more incoming preschoolers!
My daughter wishes every day was a Rocking Horse Ranch day! The teachers are sensitive to the kid's needs, while empowering them to explore and play and develop kind and respectful behavior through natural consequences. The head of school is a role model for us all. She is constantly enriching her knowledge of childhood development and behavior. She applies her intelligence and compassion to maintaining an incredible environment for our children, where kids can be kids, and can learn to grow up to be the kind of adults our society needs. Thank you!
