Whether it’s the level of French proficiency that our child has gleaned from the afternoon immersion program, the regular incorporation of the most current educational tools and approaches, I continue to be pleasantly surprised and impressed with Children's Garden Nursery School. The curriculum is very organized and robust- this is not daycare- but my kids go through their days thinking that school is fun, which is our primary goal. They get to participate in different activities which provides a very holistic experience. Our older one started grade 1 with a great deal of confidence and was ready for parts of the curriculum that were not being covered until the second half of the academic year. I've heard from other parent alumni that their children find grade school to easy after graduating from Children's Garden Nursery School, which is a relatively good problem to have.

I give "academics" an 8/10 (the only category I grade less than 10/10) because, if you are a tiger parent looking to have your kid reading Shakespeare or doing multivariable math problems in JK, this might not be the right school for you. While the quality of education is absolutely top notch, I feel that the approach to learning is softer at Children's Garden than perhaps at some other private schools, providing a more well rounded experience and ensuring that not only academics are being taught, but also social skills, kindness and other skills that are, frankly, more important that advanced math at this age. My children were ahead of where you would expect them to be at their age in terms of writing, reading, math etc. at all times while at Children's Garden. Small class sizes and amazing teachers go a long way towards the academic success I feel the school consistently achieves.

Children's Garden Nursery School provides a theme-based curriculum that is relatively structured which was one of the main selling points for us. There is a calendar sent out each month that shows exactly what the children will be doing each day and the focus. There are also specialty programs: French is taught every day and there is drama, music, and sports ball once a week. This broad exposure has allowed our daughter to explore different interests in numerous areas. We understand that the academic curriculum at the JK and Kindergarten are quite challenging based on the feedback we have heard from parents that have enrolled their children in the later years. We are confident that the academic program offered by the school will prepare our daughter well for primary school in a private setting.
