This is my second experience with the Prekindergarten Program. As an educator, I feel like my boys (ages 7 and 4) were better prepared academically, emotionally, and socially for Kindergarten. I feel as if their curriculum is complementary to what is being taught in RRISD. They incorporate a lot of technology (Bookflix, I-Pad apps, etc.) and even go on educational field trips! We also enjoy all of the family events and activities that are offered throughout the year.
My youngest son has speech/OT difficulties and I feel as if his needs are being met in the classroom setting. He adores his caring teachers, Mrs. Hebert and Mrs. Halm (two of the most patient women I know), and can’t wait to go to school each day. He’s always eager to share what he’s learned, if he got a “Happy Gram,” or what his “job” is for the week.
The staff at Primrose knows my child by name and are extremely helpful and friendly, especially Ms. Artus (Director) and Ms. Kim (front desk). You can tell that communication is a priority and is received in many forms (email, classroom newsletters, reminder notes, happy grams, incident reports, parent conferences, assessment results, etc.). As a working mom, the ultimate compliment that I can give is that Primrose is the next best thing to me staying at home with them!
