Here is what our parents say about the Pierce Preschool Program:
- I wanted to reach out to tell you how well my kids have transitioned into their new classes and how much I appreciate all the staff at Pierce.
Mason has had two years of preschool with Ms. Stacy and is now is in Mr. Nepa’s kindergarten class. Mr. Nepa has been wonderful and Mason couldn’t be more excited for his time in Kindergarten.
Micah started 3s preschool this year. I was expecting tears since he has never been in a daycare or apart from us or our nanny. Ms. Stacy, Ms. Susan and Ms. Ingrid have been so loving and kind and he has transitioned so well. As we were picking up Mason from school last Friday, he saw the preschool class outside and asked to go give his teacher a hug! He absolutely loves her! Ms. Stacy is truly exceptional and I can’t thank her enough for preparing Mason for Kindergarten. I look forward to seeing the growth in Micah in her classroom in the next couple of years.
Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful environment for our kids. We can’t be more excited about being a part of the Pierce community!
-I have had two children attend the Pierce Preschool and can wholeheartedly recommend the program and the caring teaching staff who run it. The activities are educational, age-appropriate and fun! The combination of structure/routine and free choice play have also allowed my children to flourish, develop key skills as well as a genuine love of learning.
-My son and daughter both attended Pierce Preschool. It was an amazing experience for them. They learned how to be a part of a group and developed social skills that helped them transition to elementary school. Most importantly they were surrounded by the same friends as they continued on to upper grades and felt safe and comfortable when kindergarten started. The staff and environment were loving and caring and my kids always felt like they were a part of something special. My middle school son's best friend is someone he met in 3's Pierce Preschool - that's pretty amazing!
-My son loved Pierce Preschool! We appreciated the nurturing teachers and the friendly educational environment, as well as the opportunity to join the Pierce Community before he started Kindergarten (which really made the transition to full-day Kindergarten much easier). We have recommended the preschool to friends!
-As a grandmother and caretaker I must say that the transition from our former school to our "home-based" school has been wonderful! The communication has been excellent beginning with your letter, received during the Summer, to the weekly newsletters (with several photos taken during the week) provided by Ms. Stacy. Early this month I had the opportunity to volunteer in the classroom. She and Ms. Susan make a great team. The children were welcomed into the room with their choice of either a hug, handshake or high-5 so she could individually greet and make each one feel special. To avoid taking away valuable classroom time, she encourages parents to communicate with her on a note board outside of the room, by email or a phone call. I saw firsthand how the children are treated in a loving and caring environment. They are encouraged to make choices on their own and to be as self-sufficient as possible in preparation for being in Kindergarten next year. Whether in the classroom, on the playground or at dismissal safety is always a priority. They are learning ways to properly work and play as well as showing a respect for property and each other. Thank you for the excellent foundation you are providing for our future generation.
