I love this school and wouldn't consider going anywhere else with my kids. We have been there for 7 years now (between 3 kids). This school is the difference between preschool and daycare. My oldest son was in daycare for a year and it was a mess every day. Leaving your child all day to work is hard and this made the guilt even worse. We moved to Interfaith the following year and I have no complaints in 7 years, honestly. The teachers have been there forever (and this is a good thing). There is barely any turnover with staff, the classroom is consistent with the same teachers every day, and there is NO consolidation of classes at the end of the day. The teachers are wonderful and they love on my children like they are their own. I can't say enough wonderful things about the teachers and the school.
I didn't have enough space to continue writing from my previous post, so I continued in this post. They also suggested that my child had a disability and that he needed to be professionally evaluated (with a strong suggestion towards autism). We knew that he didn't but had him evaluated anyway just to appease the director and his teacher. Of course when my child came back normal, they completely ignored that and still deemed that he had issues. My son only attended Interfaith's summer program as he goes to another school during the normal school year. His normal school (which is great by the way) said my son is nothing at all like Interfaith is suggesting. I have no idea what is wrong with the staff at Interfaith, but it all starts at the top with the school's director (dictator is more like it). They want the children to be robots that fit a perfect mold, and let's be honest, that isn't realistic. Children each have unique personalities and respond positively or negatively based on styles and situations. Teachers that are experienced (not to mention good) know this and can deal with this. Interfaith has none of that. They'd rather skate by on their false rep than try.
The best private school in the Woodlands. The staff and teachers at le creme de la creme, the best of the best.my kids loved it. they would leave school so happy everyday. As a parent I would recommend this school to anyone! it is the best quality educational program and facilties in the Woodlands. I feel honored having my kids attending there.
I have been very happy with Interfaith preschool. I had my boys at TimberRidge for 3 years prior to switching. The teachers are so much better, very caring, well structured and fun! I highly recommend!
Oustanding school. My 19 month-old daughter attended school there following a disappointing start at a nearby preschool. The curriculum at both schools was excellent (the Woodlands is filled with fine institutions) but at the other school the there had been lots of turn-over among the teaching staff, who were poorly trained, and though some were loving many were frequently burned-out or dispassionate. At ICDC the ratio of kids to teachers allows the staff to give personal attention, lots of hugs, wipe noses and make story-character voices when reading. We love that the teachers seem to benefit as much as the students from the excellent environment ans therefore we found some of the longest tenure among preschools anywhere. Our child is more attentive, in better spirits, and seems to sleep better in the lower stress, better care, individualized environment ICDC provides.
