Our children have attended Cole Academy since they were infants, and we have been very, very pleased. The teachers we had are all well-educated with degrees in education. It was so nice to have such consistency, too -- the same teachers have been with the organization a long time so we've really gotten to know them, and they taught each of our kids as the younger siblings joined on. We've found the curriculum to be very learning-oriented -- our kids learned to read early, and when it came time for kindergarten tests and such, they were well above expectations for their age. The program is very consistent and the ratios are low in terms of not too many students-per-teacher. I also like that the facilities are kept neat and clean. Great preparation for kindergarten, too.

My daughter has attended one of The Cole Academy schools since she was an infant. We've been very satisfied with the nurturing and learning that goes on there. They even have doctorate- and masters-degree teachers on staff. Both my husband and I work really long hours so it helps to have a school open for such a long time each day -- with no extra hidden "after school" tuition fees like one supposedly "cheaper" preschool we'd considered. Get on the waitlist as soon as you're pregnant!
This is a terrific school. My oldest child graduated from there and got into all the private kindergartens we applied to. Our toddler is still there and is very satisfied. They have well-qualified teachers and directors with ample years of experience and longevity on staff.
