St. Matthews is a great school with a very structured and nurturing environment. Our daughter has been there for Preschool, Prekindergarten, and Kindergarten and she has loved all of them. They teach important social skills and age appropriate academics, all mixed in with play. They challenge the children, but not beyond what is reasonable. We loved that they learned some special skills including Spanish, sign language, music and a love for science. The building blocks are all there so the children excel in their later education. There are even parents who loved it so much they continue to be involved after their kids have completed the program and moved on. The biggest downside to St. Matthews is that they only go through Kindergarten and do not continue through the other elementary years. It seems that they have pretty high teacher turnover, but they do everything they can to ease the transitions for the children. Some of the teachers have been there for decades, and those familiar faces help the children feel more secure. If we have another child, we would definitely send them to St. Matthews. It is a great foundation for the rest of their academic careers.
We have been very pleased with our daughter's experience at St. Matthews. The teachers are incredibly caring and concerned with the well being of each child's development. We enjoy the fact that our child's "work is play," and are encouraged by the teacher's willingness to have parents involved and the opportunities afforded to us. The rates are competitive and the facilities are very clean.
My daughter has been here since the summer and I am very happy with the progress she has made. All the teachers I have encountered are very caring and my daughter comes home talking about her teachers and the activities they do in class every day. Her teacher sends daily e-mails about what happens in class so I know what's going on. So far a great experience for me.
The level of incompetence at this school is astounding. The staff does not appear to understand the rudiments of child development, and does not show any sign of caring or concern about what is best for the children. Do not allow this to be your child's first experience of school.
