"We moved to Texas this year in April. During our desperate search (lots of waiting lists) for premier childcare, we visited one of the top ranked preschools in Fort Worth. They apologized for being full but gave us a great recommendation, The Academy in Willow Park Preschool. Best recommendation ever! PROS: Our daughter is learning a lot. (1) She's speaking a few five word sentences at 21 months. (2) The school has a morning routine that focus on teaching days of the week, planets, manners, fine motor skills and a host of other things that our nationally ranked, premier Florida school didn't teach her. (3) The play yard on campus is humungous and safely contained. (4) There are lots of intelligence building toys, tools, crafts and games. (5) Our daughter drinks lots of water throughout the day in her school assigned water bottle. (6) Cameras are everywhere! We can watch our daughter at any given time, in any given room, on my smart phone from work or from our home computer, there are even outdoor cameras so that we can watch her during recess. (7) Not many preschools encourage tots to brush their teeth after lunch (our daughter brushes her teeth daily at school). (8) This may seem miniscule, but our hearts melt every time our daughter says "please" and "thank you", she has just started saying those words a month ago. (9) Constant feedback from the friendly staff on our daughters progress, behavior and eating habits, plus a weekly newsletter sent to our email accounts on goals for the coming week. (10) We can tell by our daughters joyful expressions every morning that she enjoys going to school. CONS: If only they opened the doors at 6 a.m, I could drop her off on my way to work."
"We appreciate you guys so much and our daughter loves coming to school every day. The Academy in Willow Park is not just a school for her, its a second home. She is constantly learning new things each week. I know she will be ahead of the curve going into elementary school."
"I am the proud father of a 2 yr old who has been impressing me daily with all of her knowledge that seems to increase every day. The way she is speaking and using her vocabulary makes me think, "did she really just say that?" She is able to identify all the animals in her books, knows all of her continents, oceans, where she lives, and she is even speaking Spanish!"
What our parents are saying....
"After looking in the Willow Park area for months, my daughter found The Academy. As a grandmother of 3 girls I cannot say enough about the difference The Academy has made in their lives. Montessori is amazing, the teachers and aids are so warm and loving, my girls love going to school everyday. I am so proud of how smart and respectful my 2 year old granddaughter. Thank you for being such a wonderful place for these children to be learning."
