We love it, our kids love it. It's got a great balance between letting the kids explore and be themselves and a classroom structure so they'll be ready for Kindergarten. Both of my children are thriving at Kindercourt. The teachers and staff are wonderful.

I have been with the company for five year and I believe we run a well rounded program and very age appropriate. I have had many families very pleased with my teaching skills. I have graduated in child development and feel like i understand the needs and wants of children. In order to get a better understanding of our school please stop by for a visit. You are always welcome. :)

All three of my children attended Kindercourt Academy in San Carlos with similar wonderful experiences. I found the staff to be very caring and tuned in to each child's individual needs. My children spent many happy years there and were very well prepared for elementary school.

I don't even want to give this place one star. They are horrible. They don't understand that kids are kids, i once saw one of the teachers raising her voice at a little boy, she didn't even hear him out. Do they know what they are doing? They also send home these rating surveys (with the kids) of the school and i had a girl ask me a few times if i have looked at it. I personally think they care too much about their image when in reality their quality is poor. Very unprofessional.

My daughter is currently in the kindergarden class. She loves it and has learned so much. The teachers are wonderful, and caring. She started there at age 3 and now my other child attends. I have been very happy with the care of my children and how much they enjoy learning and going to school. School has a good balance of curriculum and play.

I don't recommend this place. Parents need to look beyond the pretty words.

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.
