Hard to imagine a better preschool. The only reason for less parental involvement rating is because the school is so well run - they don't need it. This school is a treasure.

This is a perfect school. The director Leslie Banta sets the tone for the entire staff, all of whom are truly educated educators. They are smart, patient, loving, positive, and clear with the children. They provide wonderful activities in a safe, happy environment. In the many years both my kids attended their preschool and transitional kindergarten, I never saw them say anything harsh or inappropriate with the kids. They are great, too, with energetic boys (which I appreciated, since I have one) and when parents are having trouble with their kids, they are great coaches. Wish every school were as good as Eureka.

We attended the Transitional Kindergarten and Teacher Laura and Teacher Ivy are AMAZING. Simply the best. The atmosphere is absolutely wonderful. Not only did my daughter learn and thrive but the small environment allowed her develop social skills that really help her through elementary school.

This is a fabulous pre-school! Both my girls went here and loved it. The teachers are lovely and caring. They have an excellent curriculum, teach some pre-reading skills, but leave plenty of time for play -- it's just right. They also have a fabulous transitional kindergarten. The only challenge is getting in -- apply early!

We keep on comparing this preschool to others, none comes close. The Director, Leslie, has the best philosophy and has developed a wonderful preschool. Their help in raising our children is so valuable. No nonsense, this is the real thing. Word of mouth is all this school needs. Best director, best teachers. We love them all.

Outstanding preschool and pre-K program. The teachers are the best we've seen -- understanding, empathetic, smart, real pros. They are especially good with energetic boys. They lead parenting classes now and then, which really are helpful.

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.
