This is our family’s 5th year @ Highland Preschool. The school played an instrumental role in helping to prepare my two school-age children for Kindergarten entry. Their time at Highlands Preschool has helped them build confidence, learn school routines, and make and carry out an independent daily plan. My son, currently in the 3’s program, looks forward to going to elementary school. As a family we have seen positive results with our children actively learning through play, and fostering what we know will develop into a life-long love of learning based on a positive and fun early experience.
I have had two children enrolled at Highlands and we have been thrilled with the experience. The teaching staff is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what they do, and my children have grown socially and emotionally as a result of attending Highlands. The unique curriculum combined with the incredible staff, who adapt their approach to fit each child, have allowed my children to develop a great sense of independence, self-confidence and awareness of others’ feelings. The sense of community at Highlands is also fantastic and it is a wonderful school to be part of as a parent as well.
I couldn’t have asked for a better first school experience for my children than the program offered at Highlands Preschool. The teachers are highly qualified, caring and thoughtful. The program inspires a life-long love of learning. And the preschool environments (indoor and out) are organized and filled with spaces, activities and tools that incorporate and appreciate the child, their world, and their curiosities. Highlands Preschool respects and nurtures the whole child – socially, emotionally and intellectually.
I believe that having very highly educated and experienced teachers such as those at Highlands is invaluable to help parents identify emerging learning challenges as well as special gifts. We have also created relationships with families and other children in the community and beyond, which helps extend the fabric of our community. Even if children go to different elementary schools, many of the kids remain in close contact through playmates, sports teams, and other extra-curricular activities. The relationships between parents are another huge benefit as you build connections with other families who have similar values about children and their early development. It is a very lovely parent community, in addition to being wonderful for our children.
