Comments from Parents of the Preschool Program:


“When I found out about Preschool last summer, I had no doubt that this was where I wanted my child to go. While I had come to know and appreciate the caliber of programming from the City of St. John’s from a professional standpoint, I was still impressed from a parent perspective. The staff were always bright and cheery in the mornings; they were always engaging with the kids; my child came home and could tell me personal things about the teachers, like “Jennifer really likes Olaf because she thinks he is funny!” My child loves her weekend time with Mommy and Daddy, but she started talking about how she couldn’t wait for Monday because “Monday is a preschool day.” That is a high compliment, let me tell you!”


“My daughter is in the Preschool Program and LOVES it!  She can't wait to go each morning. A huge thank you to all of you!”
