You couldn't ask for a better preschool than CMP. My son went through the 2yr-old and 3yr-old classrooms and loved it. He would run down the hall to the classroom every morning - he was so excited to get there. Every teacher and administrator knew him by name, and he knew them. Knew his letters, numbers, beginning math, starting to great activities like music, making lemonade and selling it to another class, fireman visits, recitals, etc. Great playgrounds and outdoor garden classroom.

My children have been @ CMP for over 3 years and my eldest child has just finished the Kindergarten program they offer. I am very pleased with the my students results and am dreading entering the public school system after being in the CMP community, of which, I can talk to my child's teacher daily, visit the classroom in the evening or morning, know all the teachers, directors and owners by name. Highly recommend. I had one problem with one teacher, and it was handled accordingly within a two mth period.

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.
