I have sent both my children to TCH (preschool). I have been very pleased with the results that I see in my children; academically, socially, behaviorly, and morally. My older child was able to read and add to the thousands with carry over by the time he left. My second child is currently there and

TCH has a knowledgeable staff that communicates well with parents. My child is in preschool and loves going. Mr. Los Banos is an asset to the school as the principal and works hard on helping the children with their education and behavioral needs. The staff is friendly and my child begins each day with

I agree with lots of comments out there. I've had my daughter attend TCH since age 3 and is still currently enrolled. I am happy with the fact that she can read, write, sing and do other types of work (I am not familiar with some of their study acronyms). I was a little worried when she did have numerous

The shuffling of administration makes me wonder and I'm not sure if its worth $10000 for elementary school. Some children needs more structure than the more lenient Montossori method. My daughter needs to tackle a little more challenging subjects as she tends to go for the easy ones. I'm not sure how you can do that by just smiling and say 'try' Read less

I am extremely happy with my son''s education (preschool) and feel that I am getting more than my money's worth. As a teacher I see the strong foundation that is being set at this early age. At four, my son can read, and is working on place value to the thousands. At the same time he is able to fold

I am very happy with our experience with TCH thus far. My son has been with the school for approximately 4 months now and he can do exactly the same as the earlier post on November 16th. Communication with the staff has been excellent - as a matter of fact, I speak with the teacher every afternoon

My son is extremely happy to go to school each morning and is greeted with lots of hugs and smiles. I have to admit that the montessori method of learning is not everyone - so I suggest observing your child and see if they do better with free or structured learning. Only you as a parent will know what is best. But I truly feel I am getting my monies worth. Read less

Children's House is a well-maintained and attractive school. The staff are pleasant and friendly. Really the nicest group of teachers you would like to meet. However, I am not sure I will be keeping my son there for very long. After parent-teacher conferencing my suspicions that he is not getting
... Read more the education I am paying for was confirmed. There continues to be many staffing changes and classroom routine changes. I am concerned that there is little consistency. Moreover, there does not seem to be continuity between the grade levels. I seriously question the capability of the administration to properly manage the school. It is too top-heavy with a President, Vice President, Principal, and Vice Principal given that it is a small school. Read less
