Outstanding school. I can't say enough about how great the teachers and staff there are.
We feel so lucky to have found Espree. Our son started at 3 1/2 and stayed until he entered kindergarten. First, the teachers are amazing. They have all been at the school for years, even many since the school opened and it's all becuase they are treated so well. They are very caring about the children's social, academic and emotional growth and the curriculum supports that as well. It challenges each child for their individual level. Ability groupings are a perfect match for the kids to work at their level. The have a great balance of teacher-led academics and child discovery. We have found the great math interest my son has through their centers work. And lastly, we cannot say enough about the Director. She is welcoming, warm and supportive and always takes the time to talk to any parent and child who needs it. We are looking forward to when our daughter is of the age to enter Espree.
Both of our older children have attended Espree and our youngest is still attending. We feel truly fortunate that we learned of Espree so many years ago when our oldest was only three years old. All three of our children have benefited from this wonderful pre-school and the amazing teachers/staff. In fact, I still see over half of the same teachers today that taught my oldest seven years ago. That rate of retention is unheard of in the daycare and/or preschool industry. It goes without saying that Denise Blessinger is an extraordinary owner and director. This pre-school is her heart and soul!!!
We could not be happier with the school! Our daughter has been attending it since she was 2.5. She just turned 5 and is in pre-K class now, but her academics rank her at 1st grade level. This is not as important though as seeing our daughter so happy every day when she goes there and she typically is not in a hurry to leave it at night :-)! All the teachers are amazing and truly love their profession. Ms. Siebert, Ms. L and Ms. Fitz are outstnadingly talented! We can speak from experience as our son attended several different schools in the area (we could not get him into Espree, b/c there was waitlist at the time). The kids swim twice a day in the summer (there s an outdoor swimming pool); Ms Lisa, the cook, prepares yummy and healthy meals right there, on site; there are karate and dance lessons available as enrichment program and, most importantly, it feels like family! Truly an amazing early childhood school, a real gem and the best kept secret in South Denver :-)! Many thanks to the owner, Denise Blessinger, for doing such a fantastic job!
This is a wonderful school. I wish we knew about it when my older son was younger that he could reap the benefits from such a great academic environment. My younger son is years ahead of the learning curve for kindergarten. This is truly a learning environment and NOT a daycare. The teachers are real academics and many of the certified as teachers in some capacity unlike most commercial or in home daycare options in the area. Additionally the teachers and the owner, Denise Blessinger, genuinely care for each an every child, they are not simple dollar signs. Denise contunially facilitates programs and plays and true graduations for all of her students. We will dearly miss taken our son to Espree, it is such a wonderful place!
