We struggled to find my daughter childcare after moving from Texas. I was very hesitant, as most parents are, to place my daughter in someone else's care. This place has exceeded all my expectations! My daughter loves going to "school" and looks forward to being dropped off. She's always excited to tell us about her day. They also made potty training an easy transition for our family. I am forever thankful to them as my daughter adores the staff.

Mrs. Jian taught my 2 children for years. She is very professional Montessori certified teacher. After 2 years my son and daughter attended preschool my children emotionally, socially, academically all ready for elementary. Our family benefit a lot from the preschool program. I strongly recommend this preschool.
MY DAUGHTER LILY GOES HERE AND SHE LOVES IT HAPPY EVERY TIME I PICK HER UP STAFF IS ALSO VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL
My 5 years old son loves this place! He always have lots of fun during the activities and most of the time doesn't want to leave it when I arrive to pick him up.The staff is polite, flexible and provides all the attention that the kids and adults need.I was lucky to be recommended to Willow Glen Academy when trying to find a place to take good care of my son.
This Is a great school. This school has educated both my children. They've learned a lot since they have been here. When my son first started at 2, he was very shy and quiet. After being here for 2 years, he has formed sentences and basically transformed his vocabulary. Alyssa came here at 3 years and is now 5. She knows how to write, days of the week, calendar months, count to 100 and she is ready for kindergarten. All the teachers are very cordial, easy to work with and they care about the kids education and they show compassion.
My daughter has been at this school since she was 2 years old. Her two favorite teachers are Miss Shannon and Miss Teresa. She has gone from a shy two year old to a happy talkative 4 year old. Her speech and grammar have improved and she can't wait to go to school the next day. My daughter has come home telling me colors in Spanish.A parent's #1 priority is a child's education. This is the place where your child is safe
Anyone who knows anything about childcare and the well being of children should choose Willow glen academy preschool. All the best teachers, safe grounds, compliant academics with charm. No better place then here I would place my son in, he loves the staff and environment. Anyone who posted anything bad about this wonderful school should look in the mirror and see what they are missing. Great place 10000000000 cookie points for this parent.
I was really nervous coming back to San Jose from Newark since I had a pretty terrible experience with a day care in San Jose that caused a lot of issues for my son. He was being bullied by older kids that were in a after school program with the school and I had no idea those kids mingled with the younger children, needless to say he picked up some very bad habits and suffered some emotional un-stability as well as he didn't learn anything at this crucial time for his age. He developed some behavioral issues that our Newark school couldn't handle and ultimately he had to leave that school which I understood but it didn't seem like they had any solutions to offer. I kept him out of school for few months with hopes he could return before starting kindergarten and that's when I found Mr. Randy's school and I thought I got to give it a shot because I had to go back to work and school. I was nervous putting him back in preschool especially after all the up's and downs. Mrs. Dorothy was the first person I met when I toured the school and she was awesome, very good listener and I just had a good vibe from her that she could help my son get to where he needs to be. Once I came in to sign him up and for them to meet my son Mr. Randy was there with a such a warm welcome, he was so honest and willing to help I couldn't wait for him to start. The teacher to student ratio was reasonable, the facility was organized and clean with plenty of space, their curriculum was something I hadn't seen before it made me very excited. They were very open and honest about any past issues they've had and experiences that was reassuring knowing there wouldn't be any surprises. The paperwork was insightful something I hadn't seen before and it allowed me to express my concerns as parent to them what he personally needed to grow which was a huge relief to know they wanted to know so much from my perspective about my child.
Even though the twins have graduated from WGA, I felt compelled to write a review. They spent 4 wonderful years here, including the kindergarten program in their final year. Throughout the 4 years, Mr. Randy invested time and money improving the school and outside play area. Ms. Teresa, Ms. Shannon, Ms. Dorothy, and the rest of the staff are exceptional. The girls attend Willow Glen Elementary now, but still talk about the teachers at WGA all the time. Thanks to the preparation at WGA, the transition into first grade was easy. I rarely write reviews, unless it's for a business I feel is worth promoting. Willow Glen Academy is one of them. Thank you, WGA for creating such great memories.
I am sending my daughter from last one month, the school is very neat, not over crowded, has a well balanced program for 2-6 years old. My child has fun and learns a lot throughout the day. They have a unique way of connecting to child and then make him or her learn. One very important fact is that they pay attention to children's food and water, Menu is very healthy and balanced. My child is kept full, learns good manners , life skills and academics----what more one can ask. I am so lucky to find this place. finally some luck in the town.
