My oldest daughter went here for 4k and thrived!! It was her first experience away from home and Mr. Boris was such a fantastic teacher. She'd loved all of the experiments they did to learn new concepts. I plan on sending my younger two children there when they reach the proper ages.

Our daughter did 3 year old Preschool and 4K here and LOVED IT! Our son started 3 year old Preschool there this year and is loving it as well. The teachers were amazing and we couldn't get over how much our children learned. It was an amazing environment and highly recommend them! The daycare is very good as well. We just wish they had a full school so we didn't have to have our kids go elsewhere once they got to K5 and beyond.

Amazing school and amazing staff. My kids both attended and the last one is finishing up this year I'm sad to be leaving. I would highly recommend taking a tour and meeting the teachers. I am so glad my kids had CTL for their beginning years of school. Truly a great place.

We love this school! The staff here is very dedicated in giving my son a positive learning experience. I highly recommend this school if your looking for smaller class sizes, lots of parent participation opportunities, & a Christ centered curriculum. His teacher is incredible....she is very pa

My child is finishing up her second year at Christ the Life. She loves going. The communication between the parents and teacher exceeds expectations. I always know what special activities are going on in the classroom and parents have the opportunity to volunteer in the classroom. Weekly newsletters with class pictures from the week has been a treasure. I am really able to speak to my child about school. The small class sizes and hands on learning have lead to individualize learning. I would recommend this preschool to anyone who is looking for a smaller preschool with experienced teachers and a wonderful cirruculum.

Our children have attended both 3K and 4K and we've been thoroughly pleased with their peers, class size, curriculum and instructors. The cost of tuition is reasonable. Considering now that there are pre-k programs available through the Waukesha schools, I would still choose CTL for their pre-k program. It's certainly worth your consideration.

Our family & most importantly our children LOVE Christ the Life! My oldest is just finishing his first year, he loves going and loves his teachers! My daughter is in the child care program and also loves her teachers. Both Child Care and School take the time to send weekly updates, including sharing points with the children so we can be a part of their education. Communication is key, and they are all experts!

I can't imagine a better preschool to send my children to! My oldest is finishing her second year and loves it. We have had nothing but a positive experience and I do not agree that there is a problem with the administration. In fact, I believe it is what helps to make my family so comfortable with Christ the Life!

THE BEST SCHOOL EVER! Shocked at negative comment. The admin are teachers at the school and truely care about kids and families. Any troubles with billing are easily overlooked. Plus it works both ways and they are very flexible with their families. Do your family a favor and take your child here!

This school is excellent! Do yourself a favor and take a tour, you won't be dissapointed! Teachers and staff really care, and do a great job.

This school and child care is a rare find. The staff are committed to providing quality care and getting families involved in their children's education.

I love this school - I am shocked to see any negative things said. I have a 5 year old that just finished her 2 years there, and a 3 year old who just finished her first year there. Excellent school, goes way beyond what most other preschools do. No problems with billing, communication is very great between teachers and parents (all you have to do is ask them and they are always there to answer any ?) Seriously, I have not one negative thing to say!

The teachers at Christ the Life are very kind and seem to truly care about the kids. My son really likes his teachers and the school. From a business perspective, it seems as if they have no idea what they are doing. Billing is completely out of wack and communication between teachers and parents is done with no consistancy. I think a change in managment would probably fix most of the issues.

The knowledge of religion was excellent! The teacher put emphasis on fine motor skills. I did however, not like the way he handeled discipline, and the way he started emphasizing sexist ideas in the children so young. Parental involvement was fine.

Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
