  • My kids are thriving at the Children's School. I feel so lucky to have found such a nurturing and challenging academic environment for them. The social curriculum teaches them how to resolve conflict and treat others well and it really works. The teachers provide an individualized curriculum that allows them to learn at an appropriate pace for their development. My son is going into the second grade (he has been there since preschool) and is learning such amazing things like how to compose his own music, doing math and reading well above normal grade level, and best of all he loves school and is excited to go there every day. My daughter going into Kindergarten has been there since Toddlers and is having a similar wonderful school experience. I highly recommend this school.
