The teachers and staff are very pretentious. When you first visit you will think what an adorable school and great curriculum. However, they just let the kids play and do only 20% teaching. I've witnessed their way of disciplining which is to embarrass a child and make that child feel horrible. Don't let this school mislead you. They are unfriendly, unkind and they make sure you feel grateful that they are letting YOU attend their school.

The Preschool at Claremont United Methodist was an amazing experience for my two sons, who each spent 2 years there. Now that my youngest is in kindergarten and my oldest is in 3rd grade I can fully appreciate their preschool experiences. From the start, they loved attending. The director and staff made every child feel welcome every single day. There were always engaging activities planned for every type of learner. They learned how to problem solve, get along with others, and love learning. On the days I was privileged enough to complete the Parent Participation days I was in awe of the teachers and their program. (I've taught elementary school for 16 years and know when I see good teaching.) When my boys moved on to kindergarten they were very well-prepared. They had spent their preschool years participating in developmentally appropriate play-based learning rather than completing worksheets. I can't thank their preschool director enough for her expertise in knowing what preschoolers need to be successful, happy learners!

Who sad to have parents like the one below who feels she is entitled to having whatever she wants as soon as she enters a place. I am sure if the director stereotyped it wasn t because she was being malicious but doing her JOB. When we were at the preschool both my son and daughter truly enjoyed it, were happy and they LOVED school! I was also able to be a part of many parent-child bonding activities such as going on walking field trips, family picnics, classroom plays, family night out, star gazing, and the volunteering during the summer enrichment program! (Where yes they group the children .and do car washes, toy washes, sand castles, camping and much more summer fun activities!) Too bad they didn t have these kind of schools when I was growing up! Oh and the teachers are soooooo nice! Can be costly but definitely worth it!

my husband and i had a list of preschools to go to and Cumns was the first on the list we walked in with our three year old son and was greeted by the director she was funny and warm and put all of our fears as parents to rest she told us about the program, and we were hooked , she took us on a tour of the classroom and my child immediately wanted to be involved needless to say we didnt go to any of the other schools. i was reading some of the other comments and i feel it necessary to defend the director the comments said that ,she said by looking at a child she will place them that is not what she says she says that by observing there child over a period of time she will place them, a child does not have to speak to show where they should be placed, ever heard the saying actions speak louder than words!!!!!!!! does it really matter were your child's room is as long as they are learning and happy sorry that your daughter didn't get into the purple room i think someone has room envy its not about the color its about the child i"m happy to say that my child is in the green room with miss Erica, learning and happy i cant say enough about all of the teachers and Jeri good job !!
