Prospect has been so much more than a daycare or preschool for our daughters. For 5 years, the school has been a second home and extension of our family. Our children have developed life long skills that prepare them for elementary school and beyond–problem solving, inquiry, cooperation, and compassion. The teachers and administrators offer a warm and welcoming environment in which young children can thrive. We are so thrilled to have had the opportunity for our children to attend KLA Schools of Prospect.

I’ve had the pleasure of sending all three of my children to Prospect. Having my children attend Prospect since 2008 and having one still enrolled, I can tell you that Prospect is a truly special place. You feel the warmth as soon as you enter the front doors. The children are happy and I have seen them grow emotionally, physically and educationally over the years. The staff are very competent and caring professionals who treat each child as if they were their own.

Our experience and my son’s educational growth at Prospect is leaps and bounds ahead of any other program in the area! From the front office… The warm greeting we get each morning from Susan and Meredith starts out our day on the right foot. And, our teachers are absolutely amazing! They have the patience, education, organization, and warmth that our child needs and excels from. My son comes home and teaches me! The school is just fabulous. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate our experience at the school a 12!

My husband and I are very pleased with the education our daughter receives at Prospect. There is no doubt she is a step ahead in her knowledge and social development. We especially take note of the difference when we see her interacting with her peers that attend “daycare”. The school setting provided by Prospect and use of Reggio Emilia techniques truly allows the children to explore their natural curiosity. This ignites a passion for learning!! The teachers are exceptional with a genuine interest in seeing their students succeed. We believe Prospect is an extension of our family. We have no concerns about our daughter’s safety or wellbeing during the day. We appreciate and honor the Christian values of Prospect. Our investment in education has and will continue to payoff for years to come as our daughter’s core foundation has been built upon helpful tools taught and nurtured through the program.

My husband and I are so happy with KLA Prospect. One of the top things we love is the communication the school provides regarding our child. We know that if we have any questions or concerns, the teachers and staff are available through email, and/or phone and are prompt in their response. We love the newsletters that are filled with information on what our child is learning in school. It is also comforting to know that all teachers have a degree, are CPR certified and make sure that our child’s safety is a high priority. The amount of knowledge our son has learned since attending Prospect is phenomenal. It is amazing to hear him talk about the exciting things he has learned from school and fun to see all the projects he brings home. We personally feel that he will be very well prepared for kindergarten and have KLA Schools of Prospect to thank for that. Our son has adjusted really well and has an amazing time hanging out with his friends at school. We definitely feel we made the right decision in choosing Prospect.

Prospect has been a great fit for our two sons who could not be more different. The school was a safe, loving and nurturing environment for our rule follower and our rule breaker. The school prepared our older son well for an elementary school with a rigorous and challenging curriculum. Our youngest son is finishing his last year at Prospect. We have been so fortunate to have spent 6 years as part of the Prospect family.
