I visited the school and was not impressed. For snack, they give each child a handful of fruit loops thrown directly on top of the table. The teacher in the 2-3 year old class does not seems happy to be there. The class size (20+) is too big and is too chaotic. The infant program seems well run.
My children love going to preschool everyday. On the weekends they are sad because we aren't heading there to plat. I feel my children are allowed to express their individuality at Woodcrest and I love that.
This is a decent school, the only reason I put my kid in this one over others though was that it is one of the few schools around that have an infant program and price/location played a big role too. Even though it is expensive, it is not as expensive as some others in the area. As my child has gotten older and gone through a few of the classes, I must say they currently have far too many kids (24) in the 2 year old room for only 2 teachers. There is currently a 'replacement' teacher in the 2 yr old room who has a very harsh tone with the children all the time (seems overwhelmed with the 2 yr olds). When I have walked through I see kids just pummeling each other and the teachers don't really pay attention. Overall, it is an okay school. The kids are learning. **what would make it BETTER though: The school could definitely be a little CLEANER. And most importantly, instead of constantly trying to get new enrollments, they really should focus on hiring a few more teachers that are good with children lowering the teacher:child ratio (especially in the infant-3yr old programs) and thus giving more individual attention to the children which is so desperately needed there!
I looked at a lot of preschools for my only daughter. Woodcrest was the best on one of the only accredited in Lake Forest, CA. When she started she was shy, introverted and had some pretty sad anxiety when she would leave me. Since being at Woodcrest, she's outgoing and loves all her friends! All the kids are always so happy to see each other everyday! They hug each other by and she always asks to stay late so she can play in the afternoon. She has learned so much through the curriculum and can write her name, knows her numbers and has become very artistic. I can't say enough about the staff either. Her teachers are AMAZING!!! I can't say enough about how happy I have been with all the teachers there. They are so warm and nurturing!! The staff is sooooo nice, I feel so at ease when I leave her everyday. I highly recommend Woodcrest Preschool!!
