I have two children who are both attending Christian Life Academy and my daughter will start when she turns one. We have been VERY happy. I have in fact not wanted to leave this area because I am so happy with it! We appreciate the structure, bible-based teachings, the many school family activities they plan, and the dedication to safety and preparing them for elementary school. I couldn't have asked for a better start for my children!
This is an average preschool. They have a good structure for imparting learning. But if you are looking for children to be given love and affection to grow in confidence, I found it lacking in many ways. The school leadership does not invest in building relationship with parents in our direct experience. They let our child play in the school ground after sunset without a jacket (in early December). When she fell sick and did not attend school, they did not call to ask about her. Our 3 yr child spent 4 months in this preschool and did not even speak to teachers till the end. We took her back to her old preschool, Goddard, and are extremely happy that she is excited to see her old teachers there. I recommend you try those first. Truly private schools are more accountable and more open to parents.
Staff is great, level of academic programs is high, children up to 2nd grade have thrived very well and shown pure enjoyment with learning. Music is not available outside of chapel, no chorus, art is not a strong area nor is the PE Class.
My experience with Christian Life School has been mixed. They have instilled in my child a strong christian foundation, however, I find they have a lack in quality teachers. Disorganization and lack of consistency would be my major complaints.
