Arlington Heights Nursery 5

Outstanding teachers, excellent administrative team and thoughtful/age appropriate curriculum. Focus on providing the structure and proper environment to develop social skills which will be the foundation of all future learning. The strong wait list is an indication of how families view this excellent school.

Margaret Potter provides great leadership and management of this school. She has been the driving force for the development of the infant program and full day offering in toddler, preschool and pre-K areas. Margaret is dedicated to hiring/retaining great teachers and administrators to provide excellent childcare and education to their families.

This school attracts dedicated teachers from other programs who are drawn to this great school. Stable, invest in their staff thru ongoing development/training. Excellent ratios with strong curricular and management support. Great space and well designed/equipped classrooms. Full enrollment and great healthcare/dental benefits. Teachers are excellent - really care for each child and helps them grow and learn throughout the year.

No homework for nursery school aged infants thru older pre-K children. That comes later! So just right.

Focus is on development - not can you spit out facts about the Rain Forest at age 4. This is key time for children to learn, try new things, explore and develop their imaginations. Hands on learning and exploring support effort and persistence in all areas of activity and learning.

Yes! Since the focus in on the whole child - a key component is how the child relates to other students, teachers, and other staff. Children are respected and treated in a thoughtful, caring manner.

The school is very committed to students and their families. They treat each child with respect, compassion and excellent care. Children are happy, engaged and thrive. Clearly they are responding to an honest, fair and nurturing environment.

Agree with the previous post about this school. Poor administrative and teacher staff. They seem to care about talking to each other than caring for and teaching the kids.

There are much better run programs run in the area--- such as Lesley Ellis or ACC. I regret send our child here-- some of the teachers don't belong with the pre-school aged kids. I won't be sending our other child here.
