We first heard about GBPP while taking a tour of a local public school in the area. The principal highly recommended GBPP and said the children who came through her doors were very well prepared after attending preschool here. After taking a tour of the facility and sitting in on multiple classrooms, our son attended this school for the first time this year. We could not be happier! We plan to send our daughter as well. The teachers stay in their positions for 20+ years because they enjoy their job. The environment is very loving and nurturing and exactly the kind of place I'd want my child to be if he's not going to be at home with me. I highly recommend this preschool!

This school has been outstanding. My son started here in the 3 year old program and has absolutely excelled! The teachers and staff are very patient, kind, and educational. I definitely recommend GBBP to anyone I know looking for a trustworthy preschool.

My daughter attends GBPP pre-K and I could not be happier with her class. This school is amazing! I have so much to brag about...the staff is wonderful, kind, caring, nurturing and fun! The halls are bight and cheerful. The classrooms are spacious and divided into sections for reading, dramatic play, building, puzzles, and hands on activities. Each classroom is warm and inviting. I LOVE the open door policy and the chances to volunteer and be a part of my daughters school day. With the excitement I found upon entering the doors on her first day, my heart skipped a beat and my longing to get back to teaching was strong. I signed up to be a substitute teacher and have enjoyed covering most classes in one capacity or another. I love this preschool! I highly recommend GBPP to anyone looking for small teacher/student ratios, fun in learning while including Spanish, music and computers as a part of the weekly curriculum. Amazing things are happening at GBPP! Stop by and take a look, you will hear the echoes of laughter from the children and feel the love of the teachers as you come through the doors. Come stop by and bring a friend!

I cannot say about this preschool. We heard about GBPP from our pediatrician who sent all 4 of his kids here. This is our 4th year at GBPP and our second child. The teachers are so caring, the classrooms are large and bright and the class size is wonderful. My children have both started school with a love for learning and I am so thankful for the dedicated staff at GBPP. Most of the teachers have been there for years which says a lot about the preschool. The director is hands on and friendly and the tuition is very affordable (especially for the 1/2 day kindergarten). Give it a chance and you won't be disappointed!

When we gave our notice to move from VB to Chesapeake I referred to GBPP by our previous preschool staff in Virginia Beach. I met the director and staff a month prior to our son entering the 2nd half of the 3 ' s class. Our son continued to attend through PreK and we were ecstatic they offered a 2 ' s class the following year so our daughter could attend as well. We love knowing that our kids are safe, well cared for, and loved in a fun and clean learning environment. We also love that GBPP offers a variety of toddler age groups and affordable monthly tuition.

We live in Virginia Beach but make the drive to this school! It is my 3 year olds first time attending school and he LOVES it! I can not say enough great things about GBPP!! The teachers are amazing! They have an open door policy so it lets you stay active in your children's lives! And my son has learned so much! I feel completely comfortable leaving my child in the care of these wonderful teachers! I'm so sad that we are moving and won't be here next year. If I could I would let my child stay until Kindergarten, that is how much I love this school! They truly are amazing.

This is my kids first year at this preschool. I looked at many before I came to this one. The second I walked in I knew this was the place for my kids. I have a 4 year old and a 3 year old who both attend this preschool and both teachers are amazing. These ladies genuinely care about your children and want what is best for them. I could not ask for a better experience. No doubt the best preschool and kindergarten around. Thank you GBPP!!!'

Being in the military we've moved around a bit and have experienced 3 different preschools. Great Bridge Presbyterian was my favorite by far. The teachers truly love the children and want to be there. I was impressed with the number of age-appropriate crafts they had- something my kids could do by themselves and were proud of rather than an aid basically doing it for them. My kids have always been great at following verbal directions and socializing in elementary and I really believe it's because of their experience at GBPP. The size of the rooms and toys is wonderful. Plenty of room to move around and play. There is also a computer class, music time, and intro to spanish class. The class size is also optimum. I loved the Kindergarten teacher; the kids were at all different reading levels when they came in so I was even more impressed when they all left at atleast a first grade reading level. Outside of being a wonderful Kindergarten experience it was awesome having my preschooler and kindergartner at the same school with the same class arrival and departure times. Can't wait to enroll my little one in a couple of years!

I have sent both of my children to GBPP. After my first child went, I knew there was no other place to I would send them. The teachers are outstanding and so loving to all the kids, One of the most important things they learn at the school, is how to interact with the peers and get over some of the issues of not sharing or nedding to wait their turn. The aides are fabulous and so is the Music Teacher and Spanish Teacher. A plus for many parents that have small children is when you drop of your child, you do not need to get everyone out of the car. The teachers are there to assist them out and the teachers load them for you in to your car at the end of the day. The tuition rates are very affordable for the many things that your child will do at the school. You can not go wrong sending your child to this school. When it is time for your child to move on to the next school, trust me as a parent, you will realize just what a special experience it was that your child was able to attend Great Bridge Presbyterian Preschool!!

Great Bridge Presbyterian Preschool will always be a special place for our family. All 3 of my kids attended and I am so happy they had a such a wonderful "first school" experience! They loved going to school and their teachers felt like family.

GBPP HAS A GREAT STAFF WHO IS WONDERFUL WITH THE CHILDREN. THE PRESCHOOLERS LOVE GOING TO SCHOOL. THE CHILDREN LOVE THE COMPUTER LAB AS WELL AS THE SPANISH CLASS THAT GBPP OFFERS. THE SCHOOL TAKES THE CHILDREN ON LEARNING FIELD TRIPS TO THE LIBRARY AND ZOO. TO ME THIS IS AN OVERALL GREAT PLACE FOR CHILDREN TO EXPERIENCE. SAFETY IS THEIR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY WITH YOUR PRECIOUS CARGO.

This school is great. This is my daughter's second year at this school. The teachers go above and beyond when it comes to helping your child. My child has loved going to school for the last two years. Teachers and staff are always giving hugs. You can see how much they care. I am amazed of how much my child has learned since the beginning of the school year. I am sending my sone this fall.

This is a wonderful school! My daughter loves it and I plan on sending my youngest there in a couple of years. The teachers are outstanding. The aides are superb. As far as the director, I'm not sure how much more involved she could be since she is also a teacher. She has made time for us when it was needed and works very hard to make sure that each child's transition from preschool to public school is as smooth as possible. Love this school!

The teachers are great; however, the director is not one who is involved with the children.

Cant say enough! This school is gentle and kind and has made such a difference in my child's life. They offer computer, music, and spanish classes in addition to the numerous activities done throughout the year. My daughter loves going to this school!
