My son is in the Infant/Toddler now Transition classroom. We had a few miscommunication issues at the beginning but overall the teachers are wonderful with the kids. My daughter has been in Preschool for a year and she'll be entering Kinder in the fall. We were hoping that our son could be in our daughter's classroom in the spring but due to new laws, because of his b-day he won't but hopefully in the summer they'll spend time together in the classroom. Administrators are wonderful/helpful. Teachers are great (except one, who is very old school (old) she's a full-time aid in classroom, helps to feed/watch kids, she tends to yell at the kids but once I complained she has been "better" but still snaps every now and then. Teacher is awesome!! She tries her best to encourage the little ones based on their development and maturity. My daughter is in Room 4. The only thing that's lacking in this program is having more "multilingual" teacher. We speak 2 languages at home and I would love it if my kids were spoken to our second language there but can't complain about the quality of a Full-Day free preschool!

I am so impressed with the early childhood program! It is a bit sad at how well my 18 month old daughter has warmed up to her teachers! All of the staff seem wonderful (extra credit to Angelica & Ryan!) They create a strict schedule to keep the kids in motion and on track and they b also work to instill independence and community manners. love it! Couldn't be happier with the school :)

This is a great preschool. My daughter has been there for a year and a half and she loves it. The teachers are wonderful, caring, and creative. She has been in two classrooms and each teacher has something unique to offer. We love teacher Susan, Debbie, Kristina, and Chris! They all really care about the kids!

Preschool was wonderful, great teachers, (I recommend Teacher Barbara). Stay away from Teacher Debbie from Discovery Club though. She was abusive to many children, and the school district cannot get rid of her... sadly to say. If she wouldn t be there this school would be the best.

My son attended this pre-school for 2 years, which were both great. He was very challenging, but with the support of his awsome teacher as well as the other staff we got through. He learned all of what he needed to know for entering kindergarten and is now well adjusted in his new Kindergarten school doing great acadmically. The downside was I didn't find parent involvement very welcoming. But great pre-school! I would recommend it 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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
