Our experience with Pleasant Hill Nursery school has been wonderful. The staff is creative, caring and very supportive- they take the time to get to know each child and their family. The classrooms are colorful and enticing and the children love the outdoor play area. Each day at pick up, we look forward to seeing the big smile on our child's face as she shares interesting artwork, new songs and fun stories about her morning. I've always been impressed with the warm environment that Mrs McArdle and her teachers have created, this was a great help when my oldest started school. She was very nervous and tearful and her teacher encouraged her to bring her favorite stuffed animal and placed it in the classroom where she could see it while she played. I believe these little acts of kindness and the social skills taught at Pleasant Hill gave my children the confidence that helped to make a smooth transition to Kindergarten. As a parent, I could not have asked for a better first school experience for my children.
