    Will & Baby #2's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • The facilities are clean and secure. The rooms are set up perfectly for the kids and the teachers are good about teaching kids were things are so kids can learn to put things away. I can reinforce this behavior at home. The teachers genuinely care about my kids and are happy to talk with me about any concerns I have or efforts I'm making at home so they can reinforce those things at school (such as potty-training). Thank you so much for all your hard work running such an excellent school!

    Jackson & Coraline's Father

    Junior-K Classroom

  • All of the teachers at The Gaddard School know my son. They say it takes a village to raise a child and I feel like the school is a very important part of that village. When he arrives in the morning, he is thrilled to walk (or run) in and when he leaves in the evening he is worn out from a hard day of learning and play. I always feel comfortable that he is in great hands with teachers that love him.

    Porter & Elliott's Mother

  • High quality education provided with a personal touch. School administrators (Dea, Denae, Carrie) and Teachers (regardless of class room assignment) know my children's and my name. Teachers tailor curriculum to meet my children's individual needs and both of my boys are challenged in their classroom. I feel like I have a personal relationship with the teacher and staff and that they are equally invested in my children's learning and well being.
