Incredible teaching approach that targets multiple learning styles to meet every childs needs in the classroom
Handling Discipline:
Teachers work with children to take responsibility for their actions and parents are told immediately when there is an issue
Handling Conflicts:
great communication between parents and staff on a daily basis so conflicts are taken care of immediately
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this preschool
Open Comments:
My children have had an amazing experience at CS both socially and academically. My oldest child tested a CPS gifted kindergarten program and my younger child is challenged daily in the classroom. We have made lifelong friends because of CS and the warm atmosphere. I feel very comfortable talking to the staff about my children's needs and I know they truly care about each child. I have recommended this school to many of my friends and they all agree that CS is a hidden gem! I strongly encourage everyone to check out Creative Scholars!
