Our son just ended his second year of preschool at Anderson. This school was amazing, we are so sad to leave this wonderful team. The director of the program is so warm and welcoming. The teachers we have had over the past two years have been great. There is an open line of communication and so much positive reinforcement. We feel our son is ready for Kindergarten. The instructors who handle OT/Speech/Early education are awesome, their guidance even when your child does not have a need is amazing. We would highly recommend this school. We can't wait for our other son to start here next year!
We really like this school and everyone who works here. My son loves coming to school and I feel confidant he will be ready for kindergarten!
This is the second year my son has attended Norma Anderson PreSchool. We were assured this was the right school for my special needs son. The first year, his meds (which are very expensive) were stolen. This year, a parent bullied my son, twice and admitted to it. When it was taken up with the Director we were informed that they were not going to do anything about it. BEWARE of this SCHOOL. They do NOT protect your child from bullying.
My daughter has attended the 3-hour program for the last two years. Miss Cindy and Miss Val are caring and well educated teachers and loving caregivers. I would recommend Anderson to anyone. The building is clean and well kept although parking can be difficult at times. I am very happy with the Tools of the Mind curriculum and am confident my daughter is prepared for kindergarten. We also appreciate the integrated classrooms and have had children with disabilities in each of her classes. It adds an element of understanding of the people around you and also teaches compassion. This is a great school.
My daughter attended Norma Anderson for Preschool. It was an amazing school. The teachers were great with the kids. The children all got along and were friendly together. They really seemed to work some magic there. My daughter learned to write her own name and learned basic math skills. AT 3! Way to go Norma Anderson Preschool.
Great school. Teachers are Excellent, classrooms are well lit, organized, and condusive to learning. I am fortunate to have found such a wonderful school for my son to start his education.
My son loves Anderson preschool. He has developed wonderful relationships with his teachers.
The teacher here do this because they love it, and are very serious about thier profession. The curriculum is fabulous - a good balance of academics and play and relationships. Mixed age environment is like Montessori, but more directed as learning through play. Far better than other, far more expensive options where they have uneducated high schoolers with your kids!
My son started preschool here this year and he loves it. The teachers are always nice. The director is very friendly and easy to talk to. They care about our children. They ciricullum is awesome
Anderson (formerly Fruitdale) preschool is a WONDERFUL school, with truly excellent staff. The curriculum, and the dedication of the teachers and support staff is far above your average preshool - I know, I usedtto be a preschool teacher! My daughter is writing full sentences, doing basic math, etc - all before she even gets to kindergarten!
