    My daughter attended Donelson for the first time this past year 2012-2013 school year. She was in the pre-K3 program and the teachers and assistants were all amazing and fabulous. I have seen a large improvement in my daughter in the things she has learned and the progress that she has made. I have nothing but great things to say about my first year experience with the teachers in the pre-K program.
