Parents please put you child in room 4 with Ms Melissa and Ms Gabby. They are the best. Today the children had a holiday show and it was wonderful. These are the best teachers at Woodcrest. They are so loving and caring. Room 4 is the best

I just feel the need to share that if you are looking for an amazing Pre K Teacher, there is a teacher whose name begins with a T :) in room 5 at Woodcrest Sherman Oaks that is EXCEPTIONAL! Dont let the school director scare you away, if you can ignore her and get past her short answers that dont ever really make sense, and your child is in Miss "T"s class, then it will be well well worth it!

we are currently enrolled in this school. however, I am very disappointed at the teacher"s quality. The have a high turn over of teachers. some of the teacher assistant can't speak English very well. some of the classes the lead teacher works part time and the TA is not fit to handle the kids for the rest of the day. Due to a shortage of teachers our kids spend most of their afternoon outside in the yard even though their activity schedule says they have to finish academic. I have a feeling that for the money they charge us they are cheating us from academic to prepare our kids for kindergarten. I am very sad and very very disappointed. the Ratio of student to teachers per class is high. this is not a cheap school and my expectation was more than what it is that I am getting.

The teachers at this school are terrible. Little to no patience...and have no problem yelling at your kid. The director is only nice until you register then she can't be bothered by you once your child is a student. This school is dirty to...there's always lice going around or my kid was always sick. The bathrooms are filthy. Make sure you tour this school so you can see the grime on your own.

Last year, we moved to US and one day I found Woodcrest call for enrolment when I was passing by. The minute I visit the principle I'd decided to register my son. My son was shy, not interacting with others very much. During the one and half year he has been in Woodcrest he improved a lot and when today I saw him in room four standing in front of the class and introducing himself and explaining his share toy with the rest I was really proud and I knew that I owe a good recommendation to the school. The teachers are great and they handle the classrooms very well. Everyday is different from the others and their summer camp is very interesting.

How do I feel about this school??? Absolutely the best decision I have made regarding schools for my daughter - who just graduated pre-k. I cant even begin to put in words what these teachers mean to us, what the care is like and how professional the office staff was throughout the whole year. Any concerns, any suggestions, anything at all, was taken into consideration and handled with professionalism and in a VERY timely manner. The school is run very smoothly, no drama (as in other schools) between teachers and parents.. everything is just smoooooth!! The teachers keep you informed on anything that goes on, whether its regarding your child or the classroom/school in general. I would (and have) HIGHLY recommend to give your children this great experience. My daughter is fully prepared for kinder now, not only mentally, but socially, emotionally, and education wise. Highly Highly recommend!!!

Both of my daughters attended preschool here for over two and a half years. They're a year and a half apart so we have seen them through a couple of different classrooms. The director, Cilene, is wonderful-very business oriented and caring. She runs this preschool exceptionally well. Each teacher is screened carefully and if she or a parent find anything less than stellar, she handles it immediately. The teachers are super. They really take good care of the children, set boundaries and encourage growth through milestones while leading them positively and with consistency. I was so worried about leaving my daughters with anyone after a Montessori nightmare and dirty schools that had slick marketing but poor hygiene standards. After attending this school for a month, they were sick very infrequently in comparison to when they attended other schools. Further, they are well-adjusted, kind and confident. I credit Cilene's management and Woodcrest preschool in Sherman Oaks for a lot of that.

My 2.5 year old son attends Woodcrest Sherman Oaks currently, he is in classroom 1. He has now been a student for 5 months. Like many of the parents that have posted reviews, I cannot say enough good things about this school. The teachers are very nurturing and loving - my son simply adores them and gives them lots of hugs and kisses. The program has the right mix of learning and activities. He often tells me that school is fun. We are amazed at how much his language developed since he started school. From barely speaking, he now sings entire songs by himself! Overall Woodcrest is an excellent school!
