Extremely happy with the level of education received at the school. Excellent teachers who are nurturing, creative, energetic, and Godly! They will treat your children as their own and really look after mental and spiritual growth. Cannot be a happier parent!

My daughter has attended this school for the past three years - two years of PreK then K. We are extremely happy and grateful for the level of education and attention she received from Children First. My daughter and all her classmates are proficient readers (at 5 years old!). They've also learn math, history, writing, Spanish, along with great life skills. Teachers are very loving and supportive. They hone in on not only your children's strengths but also weaknesses and partner with you to guide and develop them as well rounded individuals. I would highly recommend this school to any parents looking to enhance their child's abilities. My second child is enrolled for the fall!

This school was recommended by our friends and we can't thank them ENOUGH !!! The best in this area. Ever since my daughter started going to this school we have seen remarkable change in her. I only have wonderful things to say about this school - the director and the teachers. Ms Lee, Ms Hann, Ms.Stephanie etc, etc.. My daughter loves going there.. refuses to come home:) and that speaks volumes about this school. The monthly parent-teacher meetings are helping us immensely to work with them as a team. any concern, Ms.Lee - The director is a great lady - so very patient and loving, always there to listen and help ! I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for quality education.

This is a wonderful school. Really, THE best. They care for the development of the children's intellect, character, imagination, and soul. They help the children actualize their intellectual gifts , and help them to develop and strengthen their relationship with God. This school is really is the best educational experience in Metuchen.

This school was recommended to me by my sister and now I would strongly recommend to other parents. My daughter does maths and reading which is almost one level up. I never felt need to put my kids in Kumon. I would highly recommend Mrs. Choi who is my daughter's class teacher and her way of teaching. The school is small but the standard of education is high, compared to any other schools around.

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.
