It was one of my best decision to enroll my daughter at play and learn for PreK 3. Fortunately, my daughter had Mrs. Trady and Mrs. Collins as her first teachers, it was almost like the cherry on the cake. My daughter simply adores both the teachers, Mrs. Trady is a very knowledgeable and hardworking in her work. I can see a tremendous amount of growth in my daughter over 1 school year.Mrs. Trady is very cooperative, understanding and helpful with parents as well. She makes each child feel special and gives importance and attention to each one of them. Mrs. Collins is favourite of every child. She is very loving and caring and takes care of the children as id her own. Both the teachers did an awesome job !!

We almost visited all qualifying schools those offer Prek - 3 in the neighborhood.As the parents of a single kid we were very particular about the teachers for our 3 years old's very first school.We choose play n learn school, Clifton place and now we can say it is one of the best public school for Prek - 3 in Jersey City.Our daughter was going to Ms. Trady & Ms. Collins class.Both the teachers are wonderful.Ms. Trady is very active,interactive and always gives individual attention to every single kid.Ms. Collins is very caring n loving person what kids always look for.Our daughter has learned more than we expected from her at this age.I must say the teachers are the best in the school,as my friends kids going to the other class in the same school always praise these two teachers.My daughter was really very lucky to have Ms. Trady n Ms. Collins her first teacher.We are very much satisfied with the teachers effort.

My son went to this school only for 4 months. His English language skills greatly improved. They were so kind and taught my son good behavior and great discipline. Thanks a lot

We had an amazing experience with this school. We were the typical nervous parents with a million questions about leaving our 3 year old all day for the first time. Our minds were quickly put at ease. Our daughters teacher was GREAT - when I showed one of my best friends, who is also a pre-k3 teacher in another school, the projects my daughter was doing at school she was VERY impressed! Ms.Zielinski went above and beyond, not only making every moment special with art/pictures/gifts to send home, but also taking time to identify each students needs. Our child grew intellectually, socially, creatively - all around. In the end for us it was: When I drop my child off in the morning, am I confident that she will have a great day, be cared for, stimulated, happy, and safe? The answer is 100% YES!

My daughter learned so much about how to interact with other children, how to play cooperatively and use good manners.

We wanted our son to learn how to love to learn in his first year of school. Mission accomplished! The school is wonderful in all aspects: great director, great teachers, great food, lots of individual attention. The faculty all seem to have a progressive grasp on early childhood development, and have much experience. I highly recommend this school to absolutely everyone.

We agree that the grading system at Primary Prep is not a clear and true reflection of the quality of education or a measure of how intelligent a child is. Our child, like most children at the school (we learned) received straight A grades. Our child did it with very little effort. We had our daughter tested outside of the school and learned that she was actually behind for her grade! Sadly, we came to realize that our daughter was simply memorizing for tests as opposed to truly understanding the material. We've come to the conclusion that the grading system at Primary Prep is more for the parents benefit and used to encourage children that follow rules well and behave. All parents should really question what an A grade really represents. For this reason alone, we are looking for schooling elsewhere.

There is a great emphasis on education and focus from both the teachers, teaching assistants and after-school assistants to ensure my son is focusing on his "weaker" subjects and getting the assistance he needs.
