    This school has a great preschool program. My son has been going here for 3 months and he has learned every nursery rhyme there is. He can count he knows his Alphabet and he is learning how to write. I am so proud of his accomplishments in just three months. Ms. Shucster and Ms. Anderson keep up the great work.
