I would drive by The Whistle Stop on my way to work (Hickox location) and would think to myself what a gorgeous pre-school; no way can I afford it. Normally childcare and affordable do not belong in the same sentence. Besides being incredibly affordable and gorgeous, TWS has a very caring environment. The teachers and administrative staff are friendly and salute every single person that comes through the door. The teaching staff has been great with my girls. My oldest was fully potty trained within a week of starting at her new school. You can tell the teachers truly care about their students; I love the friendliness upon pick up. The teachers openly discuss my childs day, as a working mother I miss out on a lot and want to know what happened throughout their day. Now I know this might not be a big deal to some, but I absolutely love how much detail and though the teachers but into the special holiday crafts they send home for you. The school also takes the time to plan themed days multiple times a week, which gets the kids really excited. I could probably write an essay on how much I love this school and why I think you should consider it.
My son went to Whistle Stop (Hickox) from 15 mo old until he started Kindergarten this year. Unfortunately his school is not in Rowlett and he had to change from WS. However, he has requested to return to Whistle Stop over the summer b/c he loves it so much. We cannot say enough good things abt the school and staff.
The school is wonderful, my daughter has gone there for almost 2 years now and the teachers are great. The only downfall is they just raised there rates and they are quite pricey. We had to move because of the rate increase. If they went back and didn't raise the rate she would still be there.
The staff at Whistle Stop (Chiesa) has been wonderful. They've always been attentive and loving towards my kids. For the past 3 years, my kids have been happy there and have always enjoyed spending the day with their teachers and friends. Only complaint: Young and impatient teachers - although they weed them out pretty quickly. Teachers that have been there for years are great! They truly care for the kids!
