After being on the waiting list about 6 months (without a deposit in advance, as many schools require) my son started part time just before his third birthday and loves it. The staff is friendly, helpful, caring and nurturing for to both the children and parents. He loves his teacher, Ms. Leo and looks forward to coming to school (asking when the next day is, since he only goes twice a week). He brings home lots of art and worksheets, so I know he’s learning! He also sings songs that he’s been learning at school and teaches them to me! I always feel welcome there, never in the way if I want to hang around a few minutes to push my son on the tire swing (his favorite thing for me to do before leaving). All in all, we made a good choice! Krista D.
Our child attended Toluca Crossroads for three years, and had a wonderful experience (as did we). It is a loving, safe environment that provided our child with an excellent education. He left there knowing how to read, some math skills, and has had experience with Spanish, Mandarin and sign language. When people remark how polite and well mannered our son is, I always give credit to the staff who enforced those values every day.Courtney R.
Our son was in every single classroom at Toluca Crossroads from 3 months until he left to attend Kindergarten. There weren’t a lot of options for a 3-month old then but we fully stand behind our decision to keep him enrolled. Now, as a current Kindergartener in a public school, he is performing above grade level in ELA and Math, and is, in fact, reading (and comprehending) at a second grade level. His K teacher told us at the beginning of the year that he was very well-prepared not just academically but socially as well. We are grateful for the strong foundation he received at TC and their capacity to help him stretch academically especially in his last two years there.Jocelyn C.
My son started attending Toluca Crossroads this year, in the PK/Kindergarten class. I am not exaggerating when I say, this school has truly had a HUGE impact on him, and our family as a whole. Warm, caring, and extremely experienced teaching staff. He feels successful and safe. Our son went from barely being able to write his name, to sounding out and writing sentences in a matter of months. We had thought that a play based was best for him, and while that may be the case for some children, it was not for my child. He is thriving in their structured, while still incorporating play and curiosity, learning environment. I will be forever grateful for the time my son has spent as a student there. I truly believe it is positively shaping his newfound love of learning, that will serve him for the duration of his education. And as another parent commented, the school is so incredibly CLEAN. They are also on top of observing and understanding their students. As well as handling even the smallest conflicts or problems with great care and professionalism. While it is an expense, as any private school is, it is worth every penny. I just wish we had been on the waiting list sooner.Lea G.
