My daughter is in the Pre-K program here and we love, love, love it! Its a smaller class and she comes home everyday learning something new. She is a very smart girl and thanks to this school, is on the brink of reading. She loves going to school and gets very upset if its not a school day. All of the teachers are amazing and truly do an outstanding job with each child. The parents here are great as well- They are all involved and its very obvious they each take pride in parenting their child which in my opinion, is awesome. We will miss this school next year but hope to send my future children here.
I've had two children with two very different personalities enrolled at LPCNS. The teachers in their respective classrooms have done wonders to accomodate, nurture and bring out the best in each child. While I appreciate the academic aspects of their pre-school program, what I like even better is the staff's attention to 'character building'. There is great emphasis on working together, kindness, sharing, good manners and helping each other. These are the real 'life lessons' I want my children to take away from their pre-school experience.
This school consistently exceeds my expectations of a pre-school. My daughter attended the 3 year-old-class and is now in the 4 s. The growth in her knowledge of the alphabet, artistic abilities, and socialization since she has been enrolled I find amazing. Each morning she looks forward to going to school and is sad if it is not a school day! The teachers are wonderful; the patience they display towards the children and the bond they create with them makes this school feel more like a family than a business. I cannot begin to recommend it enough to anyone searching for a top-rate pre-school in the area.
This school is a fantastic fit for my daughter. She loves the crafts, stories and games and talks frequently and enthusiastically about her school experiences. She loves her 3 year old class and is already wondering about the new things she will learn next year. This was my daughter's very first group experience away from home. Our initial concerns were allayed by the nurturing environment and the patience and rapport the teachers have with the students. Our daughter is far more confident in social situations after just a few months at this preschool. I heard good things about LPNS when considering schools for my daughter and am now happy to add my own positive review.
My son came late to the Pre-K program but the staff and students were quick to include him. It is a small school perfect for parents who want to be involved on a regular basis. Imagination and creativity are encouraged and emphasized. My son brings home a new craft almost everyday. They concentrate on basic math and reading skills and are also very focused on socialization which IMO is exactly what preschool is all about. A great program for anyone who wants to be involved.
