You don't know how good it is, until it's gone... My oldest attended PPP beginning at 12 weeks old. He graduated from Pre-K this spring and started public kindergarten in August. Thankfully, we are in a good school district and he is being challenged and is engaged. But you really don't know how good PPP is until your kids are no longer there... My son loves art and music because of PPP. He is in an advanced reading and math group because of PPP. He likes to write and illustrate his own stories because of PPP. His love of learning started at PPP in the Infant Suite and I hope it continues for the rest of his life.
My youngest is about to move up to Preppie I. She is not yet 3 years old and can count to almost 20 in Chinese and sings in Spanish. She loves to "read" to her stuffed animals and she loves to try to "write" like her brother as well. She can say the Pledge of Allegiance, she can sing "God Bless America," and she can identify the letters of the alphabet, all shapes and colors, and numbers as well. All because of the teachers at PPP.
We looked at only 2 preschools before deciding to start my son at PPP more than 5 years ago. Needless to say, PPP was our second (and final) tour. We knew it was the right place, based on what we saw, and based on recommendations from other parents. We have now recommended PPP to several friends whose children are now attending PPP. PPP is an amazing preschool (emphasis on SCHOOL) and is worth the investment. Every teacher, in every class, at every level, and in every "special" subject, challenges each child, loves each child, and encourages each child to learn and grow every day. You don't know how much you love and appreciate everything PPP has to offer until your kids move on, or move out of one classroom and into another, much quicker than you were expecting...
We have 2 children at PPP and this is our 2nd year at this wonderful school. I wrote a review just over a year ago after just 3 weeks at PPP and a year later I feel even stronger about everything I raved about in my previous review. Our middle daughter completed PPP's Pre-K program last year and we were so impressed with the progress she made, that we did not hesitate to enroll her into the Kindergarten program at PPP. Just 8 weeks into the new 2016-2016 school year and we are delighted that we've made the perfect decision in doing so as she is LOVING Kindergarten. Ms. Anissa is her hero and one of the best teachers I've ever met and we are delighted that our daughter finds school 'fun' and 'exciting'. Ms. Anissa's enthusiasm and love for her students and for teaching are second to none and is evident in any contact you have with her. I don't have to drag any information out of our daughter, because she cannot wait to tell me about all the interesting things she did that day. I'm amazed at how her writing, reading and Math have developed in such a short space of time and how enthusiastic she is about doing homework! With an older daughter in a public school, it is so evident how fantastic PPP really is. Our 3 year old boy also attends PPP 3 days a week and this is definitely the highlight of his week. On the 2 days that he doesn't go to school he is disappointed when I tell him it's not his 'turn' today. He loves his teacher, Ms. Inga, and is always happy to be dropped off at school. This is so reassuring to know that your children are in a safe and happy place when you have to entrust them into someone else's care.
I would not hesitate to recommend PPP to anyone looking for a caring, safe, fun and simultaneously stimulating and academically challenging environment for their most precious possessions. Guided by the wonderful leadership from Ms. Kay and Ms. Mickie, every single member of staff at this school goes above and beyond the call of duty. It's not just the student's best interests they have at heart, but the family as a whole and I will be eternally grateful that we found this amazing place to provide our children with the best possible foundation not just for their school career, but also for their development as people in their own right - an environment where they are loved and nurtured as unique individuals! PPP is definitely the best!!!
We relocated to GA from CA last year and we couldn't be happier with the fact our son is attending PPP. The school in CA was all that who knew and the faculty/staff at PPP did a great job of making him feel welcome and truly helping him acclimate to a new environment. When he started at PPP it would break our heart to hear him say he wanted to go back to his school in CA, but after about a week at PPP he began to tell us hiw much he loves it and every weekend he can't wait to get back to PPP. His mother and I are also positively impressed with the learning curriculum; it is clear he is continuing to effectively advance his pre-elementary skills. Now that he is in Kindergarten it is quite evident the curriculum continues to effectively push him to grow academically in a fun and nurturing way.
I have two kids at this school, my two year old son and my 4 year old daughter. The academics at this school is excellent! Even more importantly, the teachers at this school are amazing! I LOVE them, I would not chose any other group of people to care for and teach my children. They go above and beyond! It is invaluable to me to know my children are with people that I can trust completely, and to know that they are being taught in a loving fun environment. I would recommend this school to anyone!
My daughter has been in PPP since she was 2. We all love this school. I cannot say enough about how great of a school it is. The teachers are tenured and are happy, the curriculum is challenging, but the children love it. Teachers are highly qualified and very engaging; most of them have been there for years providing a consistent and familiar environment for the kids.
Great school overall.
We've had a good experience for 3 years. Scholar (after school) program, however, isn't working out so far. Homework isn't being done as promised for about 2 weeks already and our son was in 2 playground accidents over the past month. We are having to discuss this with administration to see if improvements can be made.
Our three year old (turning 4) twins started at PPP in August. We could not believe that our children actually cried when we went to pick them up the first day because they didn't want to leave!!! We heard from other parents that their children were so happy, but experiencing that joy on the very first day (and every day since) has been just incredible! Every teacher is more fantastic than the next, the academics, programming and play-time are second to none - the staff is so caring and loving and we have seen incredible learning and growth in just a month. They can already count to 10 in Mandarin, Chinese, are speaking Spanish at home, they can both now spell and write their names and the list goes on and on of their achievements. We are SO unbelievably happy with our choice to send our twins to PPP and have recommended the program to everyone we know.
I am the grandmother of three year old twins that started at PPP this year. I have seen such growth in the short month that they have attended their new school.
The teachers are fantastic - very loving and caring. The twins have grown so much academically and in their self esteem in such a short period of time. We love to hear all about their experiences when they visit us on the weekends. I would highly recommend PPP to anyone looking for a wonderful preschool for their grandchildren!
My both kids are still in the PPP and now it has been for almost two years. Both the kids and parents all love this school. The staff are caring, courteous and friendly. They have regular email or meeting to updates, to communicate with parents. The program are also well organized not only the fun activity but also the education.
