My daughter has attended St. David's preschool for a year, and I am very impressed with the school. The large outdoor play area is a huge positive - there are trees, shade, lots of space for water play (a regular feature), and tricycle riding. The classrooms are very warm and homey. The materials they use stimulate creative play. When I dropped my daughter off one morning last week the teacher had a fascinating blue and white spongy material with texture out on the table, along with small whales and dolphins. My daughter was drawn to it immediately and began to shape and mold the material, pretend it was water, and create a story with the dolphin and whale figures. The teachers know how to rotate materials and use them effectively. The teachers have a lot of experience and have worked at the school for many years. We lived in a different city when my oldest daughter went to preschool, and I was pleased with her school, but St. David's is my favorite!

A special THANK YOU to all the WONDERFUL ladies who spend their day teaching and caring for not just my son, but all the boys and girls each and every day! You all are very much appreciated and I know that I personally cannot thank each and everyone of you enough for all that you do for my little preschooler J'allen. He's been with you all since he was 8 weeks old and four years later he is still happy to come to school each and everyday. Each one of the teachers at the VINE has contributed to his learning from crawling to walking to being fully potty trained at the age of 2 to driving the new teachers crazy and being able to count to 10 in spanish (which I had no idea about until yesterday morning) and everything else in between! :)
I can't say enough good things about this preschool! I have been very pleased with the attention, care and education my son has received from the teachers here. Every teacher I have worked with at this location has been simply amazing! The directors are friendly and involved in every aspect of the preschool, it's not uncommon to see them in the baby room in a rocking chair, or playing soccer on the big play ground. They are wonderful at keeping the parents involved and communicating with us. My only regret is that I didn't start my son here as an infant! :) I look forward to another few years at this school!
