This is an excellent preschool and a fantastic value. Teachers are well educated in child development, very engaged (e.g. you will never find a teacher checking text messages at this school), experienced, etc. There is a lot of focus on socio-emotional skill development. Students learn those critical "sandbox skills": how to relate to others, control emotions, use our words, develop and keep friendships, respect, responsibility, manners, following the rules, etc. Creativity is also highly encouraged. My child brings home art projects daily that are her own works of art. The projects are not the work of adults.The facility is unparalleled in the "church preschool" category. There is a fenced-in playground, a natural play area, and a huge gym that is great when the weather isn't nice. The kids love their teachers. Every morning as I drop off my daughter, several of the children give big hugs to the teachers as they enter the classroom. Every child has learned to write his/her name and most, if not all, can read the names of their classmates. The director is very diligent about security. There are also opportunities to chaperone field trips or be a member on the preschool board.
