Being a teacher myself, I think I am a pretty good judge of good, quality educational programs. Well St. Thomas has surpassed all of my expectations! My daughter loves to go to school, has made tremendous progress in her math, English language, and science skills, and I am actually learning things from her! She is in the all-day 4-year-old preschool room, and she is already doing simple addition problems and sounding out simple words. The curriculum is rigorous and spans all the academic skills, social emotional learning, gross/fine motor skills, AND gives a thorough religious education. I can't tell you how proud I was when my daughter came home quoting bible versus and telling me she would never die because she believed in God and Jesus! As if this wasn't enough, the staff there is always so caring, generous and supportive! My daughter's teacher makes herself available through email, notes, and even when I am picking her up from aftercare at 5PM! In addition, they provide great opportunities for families to get involved, such as Family Fun nights, Friendship lunches, Grandparents Day, etc. I just really can't say enough good things about St. Thomas!
