When my daughter was two, I was looking for a pre school where she would be happy and learn and play in a nurturing environment. After looking at many preschools in the area, I finally found Tingley preschool. My daughter loved going to Tingley preschool every day and I felt good having her with caregivers who understood children so well and were in tune with each child's personality. My son also went to Tingley preschool and even though he is about to enter first grade he still talks about the nature walks, art projects friends and good times he had at Tingley preschool.

I know when I drop my son off at Tingley preschool/daycare he literally is in the most caring and gracious hands I could ever trust him to. Ms Kathy pours her heart and soul into teaching the children everything they need to know to be well prepared for Kindergarten. My son has been going to Tingley preschool for 2 years, and is now 4 years old, and not only does he look forward to going to school in the morning, but he doesn't want to leave when I pick him up. He has learned all of his numbers, the alphabet, and is now learning to read and write with rapid results, which is very exciting! I would absolutely recommend Tingley preschool to any parent in Edison looking for a great place to send their child (and it's affordable, bonus).

Tingley Preschool is an amazing school where the minds of young children can flourish. It also has many extra-curricular type subjects such as Hindi, which is a graet add-on, since my child was speaking it semi-fluently by the time he reached kindergarden. I also know he had learned to speak English fluently by the time he was 3 years old.

Tingley Preschool is not only a school where young minds can learn academic subjects, but also fundamental life lessons such as friendship, family, and caring for the well-being of others. The teachers not only teach, but treat the kids like family. On top of all this, students take part in challenging adademic subjects to get them ready for kindergarden when the time comes. I am a proud parent who knows I made the right choice choosing Tingley Preschool for my child.

Kids are watching tv half the day, so much politics amongst the teachers, the principal will be very friendly during the tour but after that will not even smile at you, at circle time there are 50 children or more , your child is lost somewhere

I found the school to be lacking when compared to the neighboring school. The principal was lot more talk then what followed through with the curriculum and teaching. The teachers weren t helping if your children needed a nudge to keep up with the class and failed to give attention to those who weren t that vocal.

It's a great school for your child to start with. It is a bit more expensive compare to other schools. We think, they need to focus more on academics as well.

Wonderful school to start your children in. Fully enriched program that includes cooking, science, computers, and gymnastics program in a real gymnastics school. School doesn't focus on academics but is embraced. Definately recommended.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
