Our family has been with Golden Pond since 2010. Our sons have had the best experience and I can't say enough good things about the school. The environment is family-oriented and even teachers who haven't had my kids, still know them by name! A Nurturing, safe, great education and a fun place for all. My oldest son also attended full day Kindergarten which was worth every penny and then some. I am looking forward to my youngest son attending next year when he is old enough to start. Some of my best mommy friends are from previous classes and we still keep in touch. :) Love love love this school!

Golden Pond School was the perfect solution for both of my children. The teachers are so well-trained, energetic, creative, friendly, and probably the hardest-working preschool teachers I have ever seen. They truly care about children and believe in their ability to learn even at a very young age. Golden Pond's mission is that learning can be both fun and meaningful, and every single activity they create for the children is done so with this thought in mind. In addition to the academic education, which is wonderful and unlike any I have ever seen in this area, my children truly felt cared for by their teachers and the entire staff. I appreciated that the students were assigned classroom "jobs" on a rotating basis, as I believe it helped instill a sense of pride and ownership in their classroom as well as emphasized individual responsibility. The teachers are equally respectful of the parents and never hesitate to share their expertise and communicate openly about all aspects of the child's day. I highly recommend this school to anyone who would like to see their child enter kindergarten academically prepared, with self-confidence, and with a love of learning.

My daughter went to Golden Pond for full day kindergarten for the 2012-2013 school year. It was a wonderful experience, and I am so happy we chose Golden Pond. It is a place of sunshine and creativity. Each month they studied different themes and all of their curriculum work related to the theme so that the children were subject matter experts by the end of the month. The field trips to places like DC and Great Country Farms were fabulous. Everything about the school is incredibly well run and organized. The car pool line is super organized, and each staff member helps get the children in the cars. By doing so not only do you get to know them all, but the whole school ends up knowing your child. My daughter is currently in first grade in public school and while there is now a heavier dose of institutionalization than sunshine, she was well prepared and doing great. I also want to agree with another reviewer that while I definitely knew we were having a wonderful experience while we were enrolled in Golden Pond, I appreciate the experience even more now with hind sight. Thank you Golden Pond!!
