We love woodstone. My child has been there for 2 years now, kinder and 1st grade. She has learned to love reading and is doing fairly well with math. Both years we have been very fortunate with our teachers (Todd & Gonzales); very attentive and great communication. We are very please with the education our daughter is receiving and the environemnt in which she is receiving it.
