The Junior Kindergarten class at the Winchester campus of Stratford has been great for my son. He was born late in the year, and he was not yet ready for Kindergarten, but another year of preschool would not have been sufficiently challenging for him. Jr. K has been the perfect place for him, and he made great progress during his year in Jr. K. He is now using phonics to pronounce new words while he reads books. He has improved from barely putting letters together to writing sentences neatly. He's performing addition and subtraction with confidence. The smaller class size in Jr. K enabled the teacher to address his individual needs and accelerate his progress. His teacher, Mrs. Weiss experience is apparent in the quality of class, and the feedback she provides about our son s school days so that we can address issues promptly at home. All the work he brought home shows how creatively she teaches various subjects and how much she cares about her students. We are fortunate to have discovered the Jr. K program and to have met such a wonderful teacher. The Jr. K class convinced us to enroll our son for Kindergarten at the Winchester campus this fall.
