Both my sons went through this gem of a nursery school. The emphasis is on play-based learning, and focuses on what they call the "whole child" -emotional, creative, intellectual, social, etc. The school adds an extra teacher per classroom than what is typically required, so the children get a lot of one-on-one and small group teacher interaction. The facility is really terrific, an indoor sand box room was a big attraction for my boys! So was the amazing playground and nature trails. A really great place to start off our first school experience.
