  • This is my daughters 3rd year at the school, she started in kindergarten. I find the school to be excellent. The staff is very approachable and willing to help whenever thay can. My daughter loves the school, in particular ballet and art. We live a distance from the school when I asked my daughter if she would prefer to go to a differant school so she could sleep late, she said absolutely not, she never wanted to leave her school. I think the level of education and arts the children receive is extraordinary.
