Posted March 29, 2007

My five year old has attended this school for pre-k and k./ Since being there I have noticed a vast improvement on his writing skills, speech, counting, and many other skills we also practice at home. He is already learning how to count money, telling time and many wonderful new skills he is building. My son spoke to me about what they call centers where in each center there is either reading, writing, art, etc.., The school is small but is lovely they have countless ways for the children to come in even on the evenings to play and learn as well. I plan to have my son stay at that school until he reaches its last grade there.

I think that this school is wonderful. All the teachers that I have met are enthusiastic about there jobs and my son has had tremendous progress this school year. His teacher has been great about keeping me informed on what I need to know.
