“The last place you’ll need to look” – Phoenix Schools at Broadstone
We started looking for a preschool when our daughter was four years old and we were feeling that it was time to broaden her experiences and increase her opportunities for socialization and educational development. Phoenix Schools at Broadstone fit the bill exactly. They have a very interactive program for the kids and the teachers and staff are fun and energetic.
We were looking for a program that would make learning fun for our daughter and give her the opportunity to advance intellectually and socially at her own pace. We have watched over the past three years as she has developed real friendships with playmates, overcome the hesitations of trying new things, learned to read, do math and speak without fear in front of groups.
When we had the decision to send her to kindergarten in our public school system; a system that has been recognized for outstanding performance, we decided to keep her at Phoenix based upon the recommendations of other parents we knew. The kindergarten program with Miss Josie and Miss Angela has absolutely lived up to the hype. It has been fantastic! Our daughter loves going to school. She has learned about more than just reading, writing and math. They do art projects and science experiments and go on super-cool field trips that give them the opportunity to learn about the work other people do.
Beyond the classrooms, the staff at Phoenix provides a multitude of opportunities for further interactions. They produce a great annual winter show where all of the kids get the chance to be on stage. They have special events with holiday themes like the Halloween Trunk or Treat and the 4th of July Parade around the playground. The school coordinates photo sessions with professional photographers, offers dance, yoga and soccer as extracurricular activities just to name a few.
You can tell that other parents feel as good about Phoenix as we do when you see how many of them participate in the events, volunteer their (our) time to be part of the experience.
We love that it is absolutely acceptable and encouraged for parents to come into classes during the day to help out and interact with the kids. Miss Sandra, the School Director and Miss Rene manage the school with smiles on their faces and are always willing to listen to suggestions or simply have a pleasant morning conversation.
It will be a sad day when our daughter finishes her time at Phoenix, but we look forward to enrolling our newborn daughter there. It will another six years of fun, learning and growing. Sandra and her staff at Phoenix are part of our family and we feel that we are part of theirs.
