    Pre-K at Bel-Aire is the best a child can experience! My daughter and son learned so much with Mrs. Leather and Mrs. Tamaritt. These two combined are the greatest when it comes to teaching. My children miss them so much especially my son who was with them just last year. This year they are in a new school and he was tested to see what level kindergarten he is and I must thank you Mrs. Leather&mrs. Tamaritt They placed him in a combo kinder and first grade class so take a bow ladies your teaching skills phenominal!!!! Now you have my twin nephews and we know they will get the best with Mrs. Leather and Mrs. Tamaritt!!! xoxoxo keep up the good work!! Congratulations Mrs. Leather your baby is gorgeous!!!

    The Pre-K program at -Bel-Aire was the best an excellant start for my child. His teacher was wonderful. She prepared them for Kindergarden. I believe because of Mrs Ojeda my child loves school and loves to learn. Everyday he came home excited about learning something new. Sometimes I was amazed with all the things my child learned. I spoke to many parents of older kids in other schools and told them what my child is learning and they said my child is in 1st grade and he doesn't know what your child knows that's great. To Mrs. Ojeda thanks for everything we will miss you and hope that every teacher my child has is as loving and dedicated as you. I rate this program an A+.
