My daughter attended Chapel for two years. Excellent school. Caring and dedicated teachers. Cindy is a great director but the office manager, Sue, is just awful and miserable. She should not be interacting with parents AT ALL.
My son has attended Chapel for his second year now. He loves it there andhas fallen in love with all of hhis teachers. He is what most would call politely, a strong willed child. During his first year, as his teacher planned her day she would use my son as the 'higher' end activity gage. He was continually stimulated through her excellent ability to see through his over activity and turn it into a positive for him. His increased confidence and all around growth was amazing. Now over half way through his pre-school year I'm still very impressed with his teachers this year as well (five day am). His class is a bit larger than I would have hoped for but his teachers are excellent and very attentive to each childs different needs. They began doing yoga this year as they learn little alphabet rhymes. Excellent program one of the mothers has set up. I don't believe the overall curriculm is advanced enough for my son. I do work on many things with him at home as well. Over all it is a good school and has worked out very well for our particular family situation.
Both of my children attended Chapel between 2000 and 2005. Through the years I have learned not only about the high quality of their programs but also about how willing the staff and program directors are to assist those in need; whether it be financial, transportation needs, etc. They are all wonderful and I would highly recommend this nursery school to anyone interested in a top quality, well rounded start for their child.

I am a teacher at an elementary school near Chapel and can attest to the good work being done at Chapel preschool and kindergarten. We are fortunate to enroll many of the Chapel 'graduates' and these children are wonderfully prepared for the transition to our school. The staff at Chapel provides their students with a good solid foundation of study skills, cooperation and respect. Chapel is one of Methuen's hidden gems!
