My son attended Yellow Duck for three years. He had wonderful teachers and a great time in this school. Curriculum in pre/k really prepared him for kindergarten, he's one of the best students. I'll be sending my daughter there as well!

I called this school 2 times trying to get a brochure/quick walk through to possibly enroll my kids. Both times they took my number & email with voila.....nothing--no response/no call back/no email. If they could not handle that simple task twice I could only imagine what else is being lacked!

This is an excellent school. II am a picky parent when it comes to my children's education but I have to say that I have no complaints about this school. My daughter went to the Pre-K and is now in the K program. She is reading, writing sentences and takes spelling test every week. They use a combination math curriculim and the children know how to write and quatify their numbers. The teachers are focused on the children and they have a great balance between work and play. I wish the public school would implement the same program so that other children could have the same start. Thank you Yellow Duck Prep!

My child currently is in the prek class with Ms. Loretta and Ms. Robin. They are absolutely fabulous with her. They always have a smile on their faces. My daughter has learned so much since September it is amazing. Even though Ms. Robin is the assistant, she can teach just like any other teacher. I am truly blessed to have the both of them with my daughter. I recommend them everyone with a 4 year old. Good job by the directors for hiring them.

Yellow Duck Prep is by far the most academic school in Monmouth County. Every child that leaves this school is ready for their next year of schooling. They are creative, maintain a good rapor with me, as a parent, and maintain an excellent staff. My daughter is very happy there.

My child is having a wonderful preschool experience at Yellow Duck Nursery School. She is in the 4 year old five full day program. Yellow Duck has an amazing acedemic program along with a warm and nurturing environment. The teachers and directors could not be more accomodating to my child's needs.

My son attended this school from Sept. until Oct. of '08. If you are looking for a warm and nurturing environment for your child, keep looking. This is NOT your school. I have nothing positive to say about the school or the Directors.

Mrs. Corrao, the Kindergarten teacher at Yellow Duck is nothing short of amazing. She is a consummate professional who blends her knowledge, experience and personal caring. This mixture has proven that when professionalism and compassion are combined it is a formula for success. Mrs. Francisco, is kind and thoughtful. Together she and Mrs. Corrao set the perfect stage for each child to achieve success. The administration is equally as wonderful. Highly recommend Yellow Duck!

Ms. Loretta is a pre-k teacher at Yellow Duck. I must say she is by far one of the best teachers I have ever met. She teaches with love and understanding. She is so warm and caring, all the children love her. She is a true asset to the school. Any child would be lucky to get her. Outstanding!

My 3 yr old twins started Yellow Duck Last year. The boys & I had such a wonderful positive and supportive experience, in Miss Antonietta's class. They entered a class with ease. The teachers and staff were welcoming and helped out children gain the independence they needed to go into a class in January without me. The classroom was a warm, fun and educational; environment. They returned this Fall and we are off to another great year. Thank-you Directors and teachers.

This is my son's 1st year at Yellow Duck Preparatory, after my 3 children attended their camp. I love his teacher, Miss Michele. She taught in public schools for 10 yrs and she is fantastic. The Directors, Joan and Anne are always walking through the classrooms and their doors are always open to talk with them. As a parent that accessibility and involvement of directors is invaluable for me and my child. I would recommend this school to everyone!

I signed my children up at Yellow Duck Prep School because of the owner, Joan Klein and her co-director/daughter, Anne. I loved the warm family environment. My kids, now 8 & 9 excel at school. You won't find more caring Directors anywhere! We love this school
