St Margaret's Day School5

St Margaret's Day School is a wonderful school. We started out this summer sending our 2 1/2 yr old to the summer camp they offered. Our daughter had a great experience on just the first day that, we signed her up for pre-school on the spot. Our director, teachers and staff are amazing I know that our daughter is in good hands. With the small classes and the personalized attention to each student my daughter is already thriving in this atmosphere. We are happy and excited that we found such a good fit for our family. Our daughter actually runs into the school everyday she is there and is excited to start the day! We recommend this school to any parent who wants a program the provides learning, fun and special attention to your child. We can't wait to continue on at St. Margaret's.
My pre-schooler is thriving at St. Margaret's Day School. The teachers are kind and caring; the classes are small; the administration is superb; and the community surrounding the school is wonderful. My child adores school, and we plan to send our other child as there as well.
This is my daughter's first year of pre-school. We chose St. Margaret's Day School because she seemed comfortable there when we visited for an open house, and I appreciated the great qualities that the school offers. The class sizes are small, allowing the teachers to know the students and give them the opportunity for personal attention. They have curriculums and activities that are appealing and engaging, and that promote learning and development (cognitive, social, etc.) in a variety of ways (physical, sensory, etc.). They also have a good network of support - whether it's another parent who smiles and reminds you that your kid won't always cry at drop off, the active PTO, or the director who greets her students by name and always seems ready to lend her teachers, parents, or students a hand.
This school has been a great fit for our family. We have twins who started there in 2s camp and are now in half-day 4s day school. Our kids are excited about school. The director, teachers and staff are truly engaged in each child's progress. There is a great balance of structure and flexibility that allows for actual curriculum along with the exploration of each child's learning style. The teachers take the time to teach us (the parents) how our children learn best so we can be better advocates for them in their next school situation, whatever that may be. Who could ask for anything more?
My son's K experience was second to none - student to teacher ratio was approximately 5-1, allowing individualized attention. The school is genuinely invested in each student's development. A 'best buy' for private PK - K school.
