As I am sure you well know, not all preschools are the same. Some incorporate extended days or day care into their programs. Schools differ in how they structure their classes, the days of the week they meet, the ratio of students to teachers, cost, curriculum, number of days they are in session during the year, degreed teachers versus non-degreed teachers, etc. The list on how schools differ can go on and on. We believe we have an excellent program with outstanding staff. We invite you to look over our program and compare it with other programs in the area. Carmel is blessed with many fine preschools. As a parent, your job is to find a school that meets both you child’s and your needs. We believe that preschool should be a truly enjoyable experience for both parents and child.
