Close To Home is often considered the best pre-school in the state.
1. ;The waiting list is extremely long - many women sign up just as soon as they are pregnant in order to get a shot at getting their infant in.
2. The teacher to student ratio is better than state minimum (better-than-state-minimum ratio is just about impossible to find).
3. Many of the teachers have been with Close To Home for over 10 years (the average pre-school teacher's tenure is 18 months...this statistic shows how happy the teachers are, and thus, how good they are!)
4. Close To Home attracts the best teachers by giving the teachers preparation time during their work week and insisting that they work a maximum of 40 hours. In-school paid prep time is unheard of in the industry, and most teachers have to use their evenings preparing for classes.
