My son just completed his first year as a 2-year old. He will be back in late August 2009 for 2nd year as a 3-year old. This place is simply amazing. Small groups, packed with activities, attention to detail and child's well-being and development. Did I mention that the pricing is very reasonable too? The whole campus is huge, very secure, on a off-street park cul-de-sac off exit 13 on route 8.

All my three kids attended preschool at A Child's Garden. They had wonderful experiences. . . the programs are well run, staff is exceptional and I'd highly recommend it! My third is moving on to Kindergarten in the Fall and as a family we have great memories of their preschool years.

Wow! Love the school, the staff and the administration. Very friendly atmosphere and they also have a traveling summer camp for older children too!

After looking at several preschools I finally found what I was looking for at A Child's Garden. It is truly an awesome nurturing and learning environment and the staff is friendly and professional. Unlike many schools the 'director and office staff' are not classroom teachers or floaters for coverage. There is always someone available in the main office. I would highly recommend to anyone.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
