My shy daughter has really begun to bloom at Beaver Creek. She used to come running when I came to pick her up, but now she would rather stay with her friends at school than come home. She loves going to school to learn, and comes home with her work and projects eager to show Mom and Dad. The teacher are top notches, firm but friendly. The end of the day, the proof is in my daughter's smile.

My daughter cries when she is not in school. She loves the teachers and she is learning so much. The teachers are really special and they care for the children.

The pre-school program is wonderful! I have 2 children that have attended but once they get through Kindergarten it goes way down hill! The communication with the teachers is limited - don't even see my child's teachers at drop off and only one of the three at pick up. The discipline and rules are not clearly defined. The expectations of the child for the age is unreasonable.

The pre- k program is so great and the morning teachers seem so qualified. I am so pleased that my daughter enjoys this childcare so much and actually always likes to play and doesn't want to go home in the evernings, so I see this as a place where my child is learning and having fun with such wonderful teachers

I would just like to say that I recently enrolled my son at Beaver Creek and the three year old teachers are so wonderful and caring. Drop off goes smoothly and the teachers are always so welcoming when My child and I walk through the door. They seem to do alot of fun things with my child and he is always talking about his teahers and friends. So I give this school two thumbs up.

I am a parent of a 4's preschool student and she loves to go to school everyday to see her teachers and play with her friends. The teachers are well educated and surely keep the class under control. They have a very structured program that I think is wonderful, but I think that the teachers are what makes the classroom so great! I Would like them to know how much of a great job they are doing and hope they are appreciated as well...

The three year old preschool program is nice. My child loved going and the teachers were nice. They are sensitive to food allergies and special needs, once brought to attention. I have to say that there were some children there that were just plain old bad and disruptive, which detracted from our whole experience...but I guess that could happen anywhere. Lots of class parties and field trips! Drop off in the morning is very convenient. Communication with parents is limited to a wipe board that you read at the end of each day. Other than that, unless your child is bad you don't hear much at all. lFar less than nutritous snacks are provided though...pack your own! Over all - a good school with room for improvement

Really good school. My older daughter went there last year (she started kindergarten this year) and she really loved it. I noticed an increased aptitude with her letters, writing, etc. while she was going there. Just signed my younger daughter up for the fall session.

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.
