My daughter was in the kindergarten class 2012-2013. She was very happy. She didn't want to leave when I picked her up everyday. She also learned a lot (more than many other kindergartens I believe) without stress. The teachers worked very well with individual student's learning pace. I was so happy that they played a lot outside too.

Do you want your children to truly learn how to learn? This is the place. In our extended family, almost all have gone to Winding Brook with the eldest 'kid' now working Wall Steet and the others on the Dean's list. Our youngest, is now enrolled and at the age of three counting, recognizing letters, and pointing out that our litho is really a Renoir! This a wonderful place where the staff is truly family.

Amazing academic program. At four my kid learned how to count to 100, phonics and reading, learn French, learn sign language, different styles of art like Monet, Picasso, Gaugan, Renoir. They also do music. For drop off and pickup they have a drive-thru where they actually take your kid directly from the car. All the teachers are excellent with 15+ years of teaching. The cost was very reasonable too.

GREAT place to send your child for pre-school, early childhood learning experience. The staff is caring and extremely competent-my children have learned so much, French, sign-language, cooking, arts, music, drama, computers, swimming during the summer, in addition to being far ahead of their peers in math, reading, writing, etc. Parents are always involved and very suppportive.

A fantastic nurturing environment based on montessori teachings. Children learn by playing and love the french and music programs. The teacher turnover rate is very low and is very family oriented. Kindergarteners graduate the program reading and doing math easily on a grade 1 level.

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.
