My son started KG this year at Nichols. I am very impressed how even the principal was involved with the children. She is outside, before school begins, at the gate helping to direct the kids. She also helps throughout the day. Special care is given to first time students to help them grow into "big kids". At pick-up time the kids are grouped by class, parents must sign out their child for safety. Very organized. We really like his teacher who is very passionate about the children and her job.
