I have to be honest, when we were zoned for this school.. I was nervous. I hadn't read great things about any schools in the area. I LOVE Emily Spong. My child loves it! The teachers and staff are wonderful!! The curriculum is outstanding for a preschool and my son has learned so much. The principal is sweet and really cares for the kids and the school. I could not be happier that my second will be here next year. I am sad that my oldest will be leaving! He has three teachers in his class and he adores all of them!

My daughter absolutely LOVES her school! Though it is a pre-school for four year olds, it has highly exceeded our expectations. My daughter was in a private pre school a year and a half before Emily Spong and she was still a young baby but after attending Emily Spong and being in Mrs. Krummps and Miss. Jones class, she has blossomed and has learned so much. I have walked into her class with 16 other 4 year olds unexpectedly, and both teachers have always been patient and loving no matter what is going on. I have dropped her off at school and the other teachers as well as the principle have always greeted our daughter by her name with a smile. I understand a lot of military families come to the area and schools are at the top of the list to investigate when moving and I can assure you that your child would enjoy attending Emily Spong. The only advice I would give is hoping your child can be in Mrs. Krummp and Miss. Jones' class because they are the best. I am certain that Emily Spong has prepared my daughter to attend kindergarten and would recommend this program for any parent with a four year old.

Amazing! My son had Ms.Massey and we all loved her! She made teaching fun and he enjoyed getting up everyday and going to school! I wish more Portsmouth schools were as good as this one!!
