    Emma's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • The program, the evaluation test, and the teachers, extra curricular (chess)

    Alexander & Brandon's Mother

    Kindergarten Classroom

  • Great, well experienced teachers. Professional directors. Bright, welcoming interior. Low turnover. Great educational program (mandarin, smart boards, site words, etc) but also lots of fun for the kids (sports, art, yoga, field trips, etc)

    Connor & Edward's Mother

    Kindergarten Classroom

  • My child is very new to this school. For younger children, I appreciate the age-appropriate use of play as a means to educate. I like the fact that this is more than a day care facility, but an actual school that aims to have my almost-3-year-old child prepared for school. I especially like the idea that there is an emphasis on academic readiness and that we will have some idea about areas of strength and weakness to guide us once she is ready for school
