When our oldest was two years old, we were lucky to have two neighbors who highly recommended we apply to the Day School because of their families’ great experiences. I cannot imagine a better first school experience for our kids. The warm and caring Day School teachers formed bonds with each of our children and helped them to develop confidence as students, both academically and socially. Our kids were excited to go to school every day because their teachers made learning fun, and that love for learning has had a lasting impact on how they feel about school. We loved that with each program (two’s and preschool) there was an emphasis on developing social skills and making friends. My husband and I relied on the guidance of the experienced teachers and director of the Day School when it came to navigating private school admissions for our oldest, and later, assessing our youngest child’s readiness for kindergarten. We continue to benefit from the welcoming and supportive community of families and teachers at the Day School. Many of our close family friends came from the Day School. Our kids look forward to coming back to the benefit every February to reconnect with friends from preschool and visit with their Day School teachers.
