This is a wonderful preschool that has been in town for over 50 years. I have multiple kids who have each spent multiple years there. The teachers are very experienced and nurturing. While everything they do is play-based, the teachers have an extensive list of benchmarks that they are looking for the children to achieve each year, and they will go over these with you at twice-yearly conferences. I was amazed at what my child "accomplished" while having fun! They do book orders throughout the year, field trips, and there are a variety of ways for parents to get involved - helping in class, bake sales, etc... You can be as involved as you like. My children have been very happy there. My oldest went to kindergarten both loving school and being totally ready for kindergarten.
