A few responses when we asked “What do you like about our program?”

I like the class sizes, I like that the kids interact with kids outside of their class. I like the exposure to
different animals and nature the kids experience. I like the staff, they do make an effort to find the
approach that works for your child. I like the events that are given to promote family engagement. I
would have loved the opportunity to attend more events than I was able to.
The fact that all of the kids know all of the teachers and all of the teachers know all of the children.
I love that the teachers stay year after year and that there is not a high turnover rate — makes it feel
more family-friendly. I appreciate that the snacks and food is prepared there, as I would like my
child exposed to different foods. I have learned a lot about positive discipline by observing the
teachers. I also like that when I’m there, the children seem happy and I rarely see bad behavior,
and when it does happen, the teachers seem to know what to do. I also love that the program
focuses on learning through play. I’m not a big believer in trying to speed up reading and writing
when they can learn so much more through their own curiosity.

I like that my son is learning through play and seems to genuinely enjoy his time at school. I love
that I am kept so informed on what my son is doing and learning. We came from a different school
where there was no communication so I really appreciate being informed.

The growth that I have seen in my daughter in just the few months that she’s attended is
phenomenal and I know a lot of it is from her experience at Edgewater. The focus on learning
through play is what attracted us most to the school and we are so happy that she is there. The
photos shared from the first day were so amazing to receive and completely unexpected, that was
the best reassurance that she was in good hands. There is not an ounce of doubt in my mind that
she is not safe and taken care of when she’s at school and that is the absolute best thing.

I love that everything has a structure and there is never any questions. I drop of my kids and don’t
have to worry one bit. I love all the social media, emails and updates.

Teachers are friendly and Edgewater feels like a family. My child loves coming to school every
morning and that makes being away from him so much a little bit easier. I also love the fun
activities that are planned and the attention to detail and organization in your school set-up.
