Hemlock School 2

I have to say that I was quite disappointed with my child's Kindergarten teacher, as were many other parents. She was quite moody towards the students and my child was often nervous around her. She lacked the care and warmth I find to be of absolute importance in a Kindergarten teacher. And due to her shortcomings as an appropriate K educator, my child and I'm sure others too, were cheated of a good Kindergarten experience. As for the principal, she can be quite efficient and helpful at times but she too lacks that warmth and care you would expect from a professional in her position at a primary school.

It truly is a home away from home. The communication between school and home is outstanding all because of the principal, teachers, and staff. The environment is warm and friendly; I feel very welcomed everytime I visit. They also have a bunny who lives in their courtyard named Thumper. Everyone shares in the responsibility in taking care of the cute little guy. It teaches children responsibility and compassion for other living things.

My experience has been very positive. The Assistant Principal Linda Norton does an incredible job, she truley cares about the children and her staff. It is a small comfortable setting for the children who are well taken care of and given a wonderful education.
