My child is in pre-school at this school. This has been an awesome experience for my child. She has recieved excellent and high quality instruction from her classroom teachers, Music, Art, P.E., Computer Lab and Library teachers! She has also participated in the many events planned for her from a father-daughter dance, tea party, fieldtrips, story tellers, speakers from the community and many academic units. She come home many times and retaught the information she has obtain from this great program. I am also pleased with how many people are involved in her education at this school and how many people she talks about and who undoubtly let her know how much she is loved. To a parent this is a big deal. My child always wants to go to school. We will be back next year for Kindergarten!
