This is my daughters second year at Scholars. We LOVE it. We have watched our little one blossom this past year from a shy ,clingy toddler into a confident little 4.5 year old who speaks confidently to a group and is learning to hold her own in groups of friends. The teachers are caring and genuinely interested in the child. As someone who used to work full time and is now a stay at home mommy it was very important to me to be able to have open dialogue with the teachers often. This is something that has pleased me immensely that I am able to pick up my daughter,chat with her teachers and get to know them. Our daughter “graduated” Pre -K and is now in the Elementary Building attending their Kindergarten Challenge program. It is demanding of the child but in the nicest way possible. We love when our little one comes home with the sprouts she is growing in what she calls ” scientist class” or enthusiastically shares her songs, yoga or fire drills with us. We also love the “public speaking” element where each child is encouraged to speak in the assembly on a current affair. Our daughter talks about eating healthy , keeping her environment clean, and is able to read short one vowel word books without hesitation. Thanks Scholars Academy for being the best “first “school our daugther could have ever asked for. We highly recommend the program to anyone who wants an an academically challenging, yet well rounded education for their child’s formative ( pre k through 1st grade) years.
