I would highly recommend this school to anyone. I have 3 children who have all attended Dainty&Willow Wood 2 of which started out in the infant room. My 1st 2 children have graduated from Willow Wood &were both reading by the time they left Jr. K. My 3rd child was reading 2 months into his Kindergarten year. My oldest 2 have maintained 4.0 grade average after moving on from 6th grade at Dainty Willow Wood, the oldest receiving a partial academic scholarship to UC Berkeley this fall. It is a safe & nurturing school with excellent teachers. They care about the individual child and the entire family. Our children love going to school each day. Thank you Dainty Center Willow Wood School. We couldn't have done it without you!but the

My child went through kindergarden at Dainty and was not readingby the time he went to first grade. I switched schools. Now he is in first grade and struggling to be at the same level with rest of the kids because of insuficient education in Kindergarden. I regret getting him in Dainty in the first place.

My children have attended this school since pre school. They are now in elementary school and are still attending. This school provides a safe and nuturing environment for my kids. They extend the classroom beyond the walls of the school. With the outdoor learning center, thematic learning and technology offered at this campus I feel my children are being exposed to a more diverse learning environment.

I went on a tour of the school and I have to say that I was not very impressed beacause I thought that it would be a cleaner place and the staff would look more alert and organised, but instead the bathrooms looked a bit dirty and there was papers stacked every where in the rooms, the carpets where really filthy,I teach my child that being organised is very important and also being clean, also the play groung equipment looked outdated and not to safe.

Having a child in this school who started at six months and who reently turned two, I am very happy with the care received. When the child comes in as an infant there is always someone available to wish him good morning, and get his day started. It seems every teacher in school knows my child, which may also be because of the visits the kids make to other classes. The school's principals are enthousiastic and driven in what they do, yet still accesable. I can recommend this scholl to everyone.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
