Our son went to ACPK for 3's preschool and VPK. We had a wonderful experience and cherish the time we spent there. Our son learned so much and blossomed not only as a child but also as a student. We love ACPK and recommend it to everyone! The teachers, director and staff are patient, caring and kind. I love it that the children pray, learn about God and attend chapel. ACPK is awesome!!

This school is filled with staff that loves each and every child. They have taught my children so much. Nothing beats hearing your child talk about praying for others.. This school has not only positively impacted my children, but impacted my whole family as well!

I think every parent should know what they're getting into when they choose a school for their child/children. We chose this school for VPK as we had just moved to the area and someone from our church recommended it. I understand not every parent/child's experience is like my own, but our's was highly disappointing. School starts in August and by October I was told that by the teacher's and director that they suspected my child to be autistic. I immediately looked into and had the proper tests done by the duval county school district, where they completely assured me that he was in no way autistic and merely had a motor skill delay. However, from that point on his teachers and the director continued to treat him as if he was an autistic student. By December, he did not want to go to school anymore. I for the life of me cannot understand why the Director of a CHRISTIAN preschool would under estimate a child, who by the way had JUST turned 4 when he started the VPK program. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I happen to be a parent of 3 children and would never consider sending my other two to this school.

My daughter (age 17) attended Argyle Christian Preschool and Kindergarten for three years. My neighbor's three children went to the school and she highly recommended it to me. The teachers are kind, loving and really care about the kids in their class. They attend chapel and are taught how much God loves them. They learn about letters/numbers, how to write, cooking projects and many other hands-on activities. My daughter still has friends with kids she went to school with here. I always tell anyone looking for a preschool to visit Argyle. It is a wonderful school!

My son attended VPK at ACPK this year, & he absolutely loved it. I think this was the perfect fit for us--they gave him individual attention while encouraging him to work with the group, & that's just what he needed. Highly recommend this school!

Not only was I blessed by my children attending ACPK, but I am also blessed to now be a part of the staff...or more so family. This is a place I enjoy going to each and every day I work! This is the best environment for children (and adults) and God's love is shining through at ACPK!

ACPK is dear and close to my heart. Both my son and daughter started at this school when they were two. Their experiences there were nothing but amazing. They were taught the love of God, that they are unique and special, how to be indepentdent, enjoyed hands on experiences through centers, made many new friends and always felt safe, loved and comfortable. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a preschool enviroment where the teachers really care about their children in their classes.

I LOVE ACPK! I only wish I had found it for my older daughter who went to another school where she did learn a lot, but not with the LOVE and WARMTH my younger daugther was given at ACPK. There is a special feeling at this school because of the teachers' love for God AND for the children. My daugther attended for 3's and VPK and had so much fun, but learned so much all the while. She was definitely given the tools at ACPK she needed to excel in Kindergarten as she was reading and writing paragraphs almost immediately and I can't say that was the case for my oldest. I highly recommend ACPK for any Toddler, Preschooler, or Kindergartener in the Orange Park area.

From the moment I walked into the doors at ACPK to visit the school I was very warmly greeted by the director, the bookeeper, music teacher and at least one teacher (it was during the summer). I have never been disappointed since! My 2 children have attended these last 2 years and they have been loved on, cared for and taught lessons by such amazing teachers. The classrooms are bright and colorful. My kids love learning in there!! They get so excited! The entire staff is open and friendly. The director and teachers welcome and encourage parent involvement. I only wish the school went higher than Kindergarten! :)

My son and daughter (who are now 19 & 15) attended preschool at ACPK! It was a wonderful, caring, age appropriate school then and it still is today! I am now sending my step-grandson here and am thrilled that he is in a caring environment with teachers who are excellently trained to teach children at their individual level! He has been blessed to have Mrs. Kim for two years and we have been amazed at the things he has learned and how his vocabulary has grown! Once you step foot inside the building you will see and FEEL what a special place this is!

Outstanding environment for learning! It is clear that every teacher and administer at ACPK has a calling to teach and they truly love the children. My son blossomed here for two years and we will miss them tremendously this year when he goes to elementary. I've never heard one complaint. Consider yourself lucky if you choose to become part of this learning family! Submitted by a parent

My husband and I were not very happy with this school overall. It was fairly close to where we lived, so we thought we would give them a try for Pre-K. Big Mistake, the facilities are old and in declining shape. The faculty was rude for the most part. Our daughter enjoyed her friends but did not like her teachers, because she said they screamed at them. I checked into the situation and did actually find out there were other children complaining to their parents about similar instances. When we discussed the situation with the director all we received was a less than satisfactory answer. I would not recommend this school, there are plenty of others were the teachers are more professional and qualified.

Worst preschool ever! They were all so rude to us and our children especially the director!! DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS HERE as they will not teach your children anything valuable!!! We pulled our kids out after the stories they came home with about their teachers.

This is my son's 3rd year at ACPK. I have nothing but good things to say about this school. You get a lot for a great price. The teachers and helpers are wonderful. Mrs. Cathy was the absolute best with the little ones and Mrs. Paula taught a lot of independence! Great job ACPK!!!! Thanks!!!

I have been a fan of ACPK since my oldest daughter started attending there in the pre-k 3 class. She is now in first grade at a different school (ACPK stops at K-5) and her sister is in the pre-k 4 class at ACPK. The teachers and director's staff are the most wonderful, loving, competent and christian people. My daughters have flourished academically, socially, and spiritually since attending ACPK. I would strongly encourage any parent to check out ACPK if a loving and christian environment is what you are seeking for your child's academic success.

This is a wonderful preschool. My daughter had the most caring and patient teachers last year in the two year old class. She always looked forward to going to school and she learned a lot. At the end of the year the teachers gave me a beautiful book with pics of her, notes about her, some extra special artwork, etc, from throughout the year. They did tons of activities with healthy foods too, like making bread from scratch, which was wonderful. We plan on her attending ACPK as long as possible and her little sister will go there too. Check this school out if you are looking for a loving christian environment for your little one.

Wonderful! My child was in Mrs. Colleen's class last year and she made it a point to kneel down and greet every child as they walked in every morning. The Staff is AWESOME too. If you have a child that attends ACPK, consider yourself one of the lucky ones. Carla Reed, PROUD PARENT
