Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I heard such amazing things about this school, but I wasn't all that impressed. The price is reasonable compared with other schools in the area. The facilities are very nice. The academics are week and they focus more on being friendly than the students being prepared for a regular school situation. I have heard from other parents that they have had issues with the teachers not being able to handle spirited children and using terms that I would find insulting if they were used with my children. I chose not to enroll my second child there.

This school is amazing. Ms. Jen and Ms. Krista are so enthusiastic about teaching! They make learning so much fun. I have volunteered regularly and I honestly don't know where they get their energy from. I really enjoy the variety of educational tools the school uses. There is learning going on in EVERY aspect right down to teaching kids how to wash hands, wipe noses and zipper coats. Life skills that will last forever!

My children have been very happy at Nichols-Bethel. Ms. Jen and Ms. Krista are excellent teachers, very patient with the children, and always energetic. We love it here! Right off the bat, I feel like my children are learning so much more than I ever expected; how to write the alphabet, how to draw shapes. The review from 2008 is absolutely out of date, because my children are certainly learning (and using) the alphabet in school. I'm so happy I chose to send my children here!

This school is awesome! The school's directorship changed in 2009, upon the retiremnt of the previous director who served 30 years. The teachers are degreed in education, are excited to teach, encourage parent communication and involvement and just LOVE what they do...and it shows! The new director has stepped up the academic components so that children are definitely ready to enter kindergarten yet she allows kids the time and space to "just be kids." The Christian aspect of the program is fabulous and the teachers are able to really teach the kids about morality and what it means to be thankful, generous, courageous, etc. The kids are learning without even knowing they are learning. LOVE this school. My three kids have all been through the 3 and 4 year old programs.

LOVE this school. Our daughter attended both their 3 and 4 year old programs. Well structured and organized. They provide some work with ABC's (letter of the week), standing in line and following directions, calendar, numbers, printing, homework, prayer, holiday studies and other theme-based units. I felt that their work with the children is appropriate for pre-K programs. Our daughter loved it.

A very low-key type preschool with an emphasis on traditional preschool activities-- music, art, puppet shows, snacks, etc. If you want your child to learn ABCs at school, don't send your child here. But if you want your child to be socially, emotionally and physically ready to learn in kindergarten, this is an excellent school.
