I highly recommend Happy Hollow. My two boys have been there for two years now and have absolutely enjoyed their time. The teacher (owner) and the teaching assistants are fantastic. In fact, the teaching assistants are college students that are majoring in education! My children have have had the opportunity to be part of the Pre Kinder Program, after school, and summer camp. First, allow me to tell you about the pre-school/pre k, my youngest has attended since he was 3 (he is now 5). Celebrations are a big deal at Happy Hollow, huge parties for holidays and they really make the kids feel special on their birthdays as well. My youngest was born premature and he is a little behind the curve learning wise. The last two years he has gone to Happy Hollow, he has learned so much! He has excelled and is truly ready to rock kindergarten next year. He held his head so high like the other kiddos did walking across the stage it was beautiful at their Pre K and Preschool graduation ceremony. They had all worked so hard this year to accomplish their goals. Next, after school. The children are picked up from their local schools. They are ASSISTED with their homework and are able to play afterwards. It's a great feeling knowing that I don't need to worry about being bogged down with homework once home, I can check out what the assignment was and go about the usual nightly routine of laundry, dinner, clean. Ect. Last, Happy Hollow's summer camp. The children go on a lot of fantastic field trips, and have an opportunity to get swimming lessons as well. Unfortunately, due to my new summer work schedule- my boys will not be able to attend the camp and they are very upset about it. If you're looking for a special place that can give you piece of mind that your child is learning and being loved on, Happy Hollow is the place for your family. I really can't say enough how blessed we were to have found such a caring and kind school for them to grow and learn. Truly just the sweetest, and most knowledgable people I have had the pleasure of getting to know. Happy Hollow is WONDERFUL!

The Goddard School is an excellent preschool with an amazing curriculum and a unique way of teaching children to learn through play. My son has been attending there for almost 6 months and I could not be more pleased with this school. The owners are friendly and approachable and know me, my son, and the rest of our family by name...they greet us at the door as we arrive in the mornings which is a very personable approach. The director us amazing and strives to develop a child-fruendly, educationally deep program suited to my child's age and developmental level. My son's teachers have bachelor's degrees and are excellent with the children. They tell me how he did every day and let me know the funny, sweet, and memorable moments my son experienced that day so I feel like I didn't miss anything. They are constantly seeking ways to foster the children's creativity and my son gets so excited to go to school, wondering what he will get to do that day. Their summer program is amazing...they have had authors of childrens books in to read and sign their books, they have water day once a week, and challenge parents to read with their children. From the moment you walk into Goddard School, It is obvious you are joining a family of people who respect you as a parent and are willing to take an active role in your child's education. I love their open door policy...I can come in anytime to have lunch with my son or just check in on him. This is a wonderful place and I feel comfortable and safe leaving my child in such a child-friendly, safe learning environment.
I have studied the Bible for almost 50 years with over 30 of that in the ministry. It was my privilege to be introduced to Ariel Ministries at a prophecy conference in 1979. This was soon after I had left seminary where I had sat under the some of the same professors that Dr. Fruchtenbaum has studied with during his time at Dallas Theological Seminary and later some who had been his professors. Those some of them were critical of his stance on certain areas of prophecy they did not offer a better explanation of the issue. For almost 20 years I met a number of people, both scholars and those in the pews, who were aware of his teaching and they seemed to be mostly skeptical of his offering. In the last ten years there has been a major change in what I have been hearing. I have seen Dr. Fruchtenbaum's writings on many pastor's shelves and his writings quoted in many of the articles that I have read. It has been my privilege to host Dr. Fruchtenbaum in my home and the churches that I have pastored. For the last fourteen years I have served as the Protestant Chaplain at a California State Prison. Arnold has, on three occasions, delivered seminiars on the Word of God to the inmates at the prison. His materials are the most popular of all that they can obtain from the chapel libraries. Of all of the teachers I have been privileged to study under, Arnold has been to one that has opened my understanding of the Bible. I would encourage anyone who is serious aobut their Bible study to contact Ariel on the phone or at www.ariel.org.
