My daughter attended Bobbie Noonan's from the age of 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 and LOVED it. We always felt good about bringing her there every day because the staff is so professional and friendly, I plan on sending our second daughter there as soon as she is old enough. Our 6 year old still talks about how much she misses going there now that she is in public school.

My daughter loves it here. She gets music, art, social skills, math and literacy. Yes, she does worksheets to help with fine motor and letter, number and color recognition--but she also does projects and learns songs. They have a print literate environment and read lots of books. The teachers are very welcoming and available when parents need them. Weekly newsletters keep us informed and involved. I recommend Bobbie Noonans.

My child went to this pre-school. THe academic push here is great but how developmentally appropriate is it? Just about no parental involvement exists - the xmas program was even cancelled! Hardly any painting, art, projects, etc. All that comes home in the backpack is worksheets completed with pencils. How totally bored my child must have been.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
