Golden Pond School was just what our family was looking for when choosing a full day kindergarten program for our daughter! The small class size, hands on activities and exciting themes made learning fun!!! We enjoyed weekly newsletters that gave us an inside look into her classroom and pictures posted to Shutterfly. Our family would highly recommend Golden Pond School to other families!! The outstanding education definitely prepared our daughter for first grade!
Went to register my son at Golden Pond after hearing SO many great things about the school. Was treated like a second class citizen by the front desk lady so we promptly left and found a much nicer, more nurturing school for our son in the area. Can't speak for academics since our child seems as on par with other Golden Pond kids, so "you get what you pay for" really isn't true IMHO.
I've actually written a review before, but I feel compelled to write another now that my children have moved on. If possible, I think I appreciate Golden Pond now even more than when we were there! There really is no place like it and trust me, I've looked! It's a special place and you feel it the minute you walk in the door. The teachers, parents, and children are all great and my kids made friendships that have extended beyond our years there. They teach in such a fun, thematic, integrated, and hands on way that the kids don't even realize they are learning. But they are - my kids were well prepared when they moved to their next school. The balance between warm, nurturing, and engaging and structured and academic is a difficult one to find and Golden Pond has it mastered. Yes, it's expensive, but I agree that you get what you pay for. You can't put a price on a solid foundation for your child!
My son has gone to GPS for 2 years now... and by far we think its the best SCHOOL around.... my son started at age 3 years. The amount of things he learned was amazing. My wife and I searched/toured over a dozen schools nearby and they all seemed like overpriced daycare rather then a learning facility. All the staff and teachers were fantastic. The teachers are very good at understanding the child's specific needs and strengths. I noticed a post about not checking baked goods that were brought in by parents and I know for a fact this is not true.... they were very thorough in checking EVERYTHING we brought in as parents. Our friend noticed how well our son was doing and moved their son into the school as well.... and noticed a significant change and are very pleased. Those who think it is overpriced.... so be it.. .but you pay for what you get. Great school... Great teachers.... well worth it. This is not DAYCARE... so you can not compare it to DAYCARE price... Its as SCHOOL... you pay for the education.
