“The directors and teachers are warm and attentive to each child, and even an outsider can tell how much they love their jobs. They know each child on a human level as well as an educational level: they know their families and the skills on which each child is working. They take the time to work with the kids individually as well as in a group (I give them credit that my preschooler reads and does basic math!). Teachers regularly send notes to parents on their child’s progress or just to let them know something funny or amazing that their child did… I cannot speak more highly about this preschool. The staff are amazing, and the environment is warm and welcoming. The children are confident and happy, kind to their friends, and they learn from each other… what wonderful skills they will carry forward in life! I am excited for my three year-old to participate in this fabulous program in the fall. Mechanicsville is fortunate to have this excellent preschool!”

“The children love to be given multiple activities to choose from within each classroom and they learn without knowing they are being taught… I appreciate how the school is flexible enough in their schedules to incorporate whatever comes up, from hatching baby birds and emerging butterflies to school bus drivers stopping by… The teachers take pictures, and with great pride in the children, show them to the parents throughout the year. They recognize and praise the students’ accomplishments, help the children overcome their difficulties, and are capable of handling students with special needs…The school encourages and savors parent participation and asks for parent input and ways to improve. I feel like I am as much a part of the school as my kids are. We are so lucky to have found this school, and I am honored to be a part of this learning community.”
