The commonality amongst the families who are committed to a positive and comprehensive learning environment has provided the seeds for great young friendships. It is a home away from home for little ones.The school punches above its weight class using an app to share classroom pictures and organize events. Communication is always prompt and very regular. Teachers are responsive to email inquiries so we always feel like we know what is happening with the school. Our kids love going to school at Children's Garden Nursery School- we have never heard them say that they didn't want to go to school. Our older one is still friends with kids that he went to kindergarten with after building strong bonds with his friends at Children's Garden Nursery School!
We literally can't keep our kids away from this place. When they ask on a Saturday whether it's a school day and we say no, they are dissapointed. They love their friends. They love the activities they do, both academic and other. I honestly can't think of anything they could do to improve the quality of school life for the kids. It's just that great there. We are fortunate to live only a short walk away from the school, and that walk is also one of the highlights of our kids' school days. Beautiful residential neighbourhood surrounding the school.
Our daughter's overall experience at Children's Garden Nursury School has been fantastic. As a toddler, she would attend two days a week for a few hours. Then in her preschool year (age 3), she would go five days a week in the mornings (though there are full day classes available for the working parent). She is always enthusiastic about attending school every day and you can tell that she is engaged in the enriched program that the school offers based on how she describes her day to us. Equally important, the teacher to student ratio is small and have turned a some what sensitive and relatively shy toddler to a preschooler that is much more confident in communication and interacting with people, both at her level and with adults.
