Gingerbread Nursery School5

Gingerbread is amazing. The teachers truly know and love each child. The yard is huge. We've had a child in every class at Gingerbread (Elves, Giants, Scotties, and Kindies), and we've loved every class. I am so grateful my sons have had such a wonderful pre-school experience.
Gingerbread is an amazing school. My sisters and I went to Gingerbread. Now, as a mother, I insisted my son attend pre-school there. He has since graduated to a 'big kids' school, but still talks about Gingerbread all the time! I am anxious for my daughter to get to preschool age so that she can go to Gingerbread too. I love that they teach by experience. For example, when they are learning about bugs - they go on a Bug Walk - where they find bugs. They are very hands on and allow the children to learn and gain self-esteem through experience. The staff is loving and kind; yet, consistent and stern. My son can be quite a handful, but their consistency and expectations kept him in line. The creativity from Gingerbread is exceptional! I simply can not say enough about this rare atmosphere.
My daughter has attended Gingerbread throughout the summer and will start Pre-K there in a few weeks. She would have been there sooner, but the waiting list is long. It's understandable because I couldn't ask for a better environment for my child to start her school experience. My daughter and I love everything about Gingerbread. The teachers are so loving and caring and really want to be a partner with you in teaching your child to be the best they can be and prepare them to attend a bigger school. I highly recommend Gingerbread... it's worth every penny!!
All 3 of our children went to Gingerbread up to kindergarten. They learned, had fun and loved it. The teachers and experiences were wonderful! It's not a 'day care' it's a learning/loving environment for children. I highly recommend it, but the waiting list is very long.
Gingerbread Camp is awesome. My Son has gone to their summer camp for 3 summers. The school has their own bus and is constantly on the move. They go to museums, Arbuckle Mountains, Sulfer Springs, the Zoo and tons of other places. Every Friday, they swim at Westwood. The staff is wonderful and the kids really love it their.
I cannot say enough about Gingerbread. My daughter has been going there since she was 2 and a half. They teach kids to be responsible for themselves, to make good choices, and to be creative. They also get the kids outside as much as possible, weather permitting, of course. They really focus on the whole person. Gingerbread is the place for bright, active, interesting kids!
