Amazing environment for the children. Three of my four kids go to this school and they could not be happier. The staff is amazing and so is the director. I recommend this school to anyone I meet who is looking. Once my youngest is old enough she will attend here as well!

Amazing school, wonderful teachers and staff. The director says hi and greets us and stops to chat every time she sees us. All the teachers stop to say hi and interact with the kids, even if that particular kid isn't in their class. I am only sad because we cannot afford the tuition to send our daughter to Kinder here at Robbin's Nest, but if we could there would be NO question, she would be there in a heartbeat! This is the best preschool EVER. As soon as my son is old enough he will attend as well.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
