What parents are saying…

  • Our 3 1/2 year old daughter goes here. It was recommended to us by a good friend whose son goes there. We've been really impressed by how caring and experienced the teaching team are. The facilities are good and there are lots of different activities for the kids to do. They are also really good at teaching them the habits and skills they'll need for school. Highly recommend to other parents looking for a kindergarten.
