    My boys went to kindergarten here. I can only say good things about this school. Their teacher was so inspiring and dedicated. I met several staff and parents and everyone was always nice. The staff was also very helpful and caring. Parents are involved.

    my son attends Nicely and it's a wonderful environment for a child to grow and nourish their mind! They have a lot of PTO sponsored family events too. An excellent school!

    The teachers at Nicely are extrodinary. I have always felt that I could contact them at any time if I had a concern. The new principal is outstanding and very personable. You will always see her outside greeting the students in the morning.
