TESTIMONIALS

All of you have been great throughout the entire year, especially the last few months during the pandemic. I know how hard, and time consuming all of your efforts must have been, and we truly appreciate your dedication to ensure that Joey had a continued learning experience. We also wanted to thank you, and all who were involved in the drive by graduation. That was very kind and thoughtful, and was very special for Joey. 

Joey has been saying how much he misses his school, teachers, and classmates. We wish that we had another year with all of you! Thank you for everything that you have done to make this a great year for Joey!

My son was in a traditional day care/preschool program where he struggled with teacher turn over and inconsistent structure. I am so happy we found Advent! The morning preschool program provided my son with a great structure and learning environment. His teachers were so caring & fun and truly taught my son so much.  The chapel times and bible lessons were always very age appropriate and he really understood what he was being taught.  The arts and crafts that the kids made throughout the year were so adorable – the highlight at the end of the year was the art show.

My son stayed for lunch and got to socialize with his friends. In the afternoon he participated in enrichment (Science, little engineers, Spanish, gym & art). The day was full of structure, learning, faith, playing and socializing.

In addition my son attended the before care  which was less structured & all fun – a perfect way to start the day. The kids in morning care start the day playing games in the gym, or playing board games, or building Legos etc.

From the moment we entered Advent Christian Preschool, I knew it was the place for us. The facility was bright, welcoming, and from the halls we could see into the classrooms where fun and learning were taking place. My oldest, Ava must have too, because she walked right into a class, sat down with the big kids, and was excited to learn. We registered her on the spot.  During the 2 years Ava attended Advent in the full day program, my husband and I agreed it was a great fit. The compassionate faculty, excellent school to home communication, extended pm activities and affordable tuition are just a few reasons why we were so pleased.  Ava loved Advent so much and was socially, emotionally and academically prepared for kindergarten. 

 

A few years later, our youngest Audrey was registered for the full day program and we were excited to begin the adventure with Advent again.  Audrey was not like her older sister. She was shy and timid and had a really hard time with anxiety. Luci and the full staff took her in and before my eyes she became confident, strong and more outgoing than we could have ever imagined. The child who walked in one the first day of school was not the child who just graduated after two years.  While she was unable to finish her final year in the classroom with teachers and friends, the staff did a wonderful job continuing her education virtually and went above and beyond by dropping off supplies to help keep parents and kids on target. Audrey never missed a beat and is fully prepared to move onto kindergarten.

“One thing I particularly liked was the fact that the school also has access to an inside gym, so on those days of inclement weather, the children are still able to get exercise. 
During the year, the children entertained us with two performances (one during the holidays, and a second show at the end of the year).   My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her experience at Advent. She often quotes her teachers or sings songs she has learned.  She was sad when the year came to an end but was excited to be able to attend their summer camp. I would highly recommend Advent Christian Preschool.”
