Quotes

Sending my daughter to preschool in Iowa City was the best decision I made. We were a part of the school community a year earlier and it made her social and academic transition to kindergarten much smoother. I was also so impressed by the amount of learning that happened in preschool. Preschool Parent

My son was scared about starting preschool, and honestly so was I. But every day he comes out of school happier than when he went in, and regularly surprises me with what he's learned. I am so grateful to have such a wonderful school experience this first year and for all the work the teacher and aids put in.Preschool Parent 

My child comes home and constantly asks us to send what he is doing to his preschool teacher. The teacher's love and care for our little shows up every day when they want to include their teachers in their daily activities.Preschool Parent 

We loved our preschool year! It was an ideal introduction to a classroom setting for my 4 year old. It provided a perfect blend of compassion, support, structure, and free play.Preschool Parent
