8 Parent Reviews for Valeska Hinton Early Ch Education Center
My school is Valeska Hinton Early Childhood Education Center. I believe that their dedication to excellence is shown through their students' achievements. I believe the experiences that are set up for these children are thought out as practical, creative, self-help promoting, and character building.
... Read more The view of the whole child is seen as the staff carry out their lesson plans in the classroom, "kitchenettes", and outdoor play! All thought processes include gross motor and this is achieved through outdoor and indoor play areas. I like to go through the building and just listen to the active play and the teachers putting forth their patience and effective teaching strategies to help the children achieve their skill building. I also believe it is very helpful for the school to continue to allow people who are wanting a program like theirs in the city they are in. It is the greatest compliment when a group of people have gotten together and all exclaim how they would like to try and duplicate the Valeska Hinton Early Child Education Center! I believe that others should know the villiage it takes to help a child on their way to be a contributing good citizen. Read less

There is no better preschool in central Illinois! Our daughter attended for two years, and the intellectual stimulation and loving atmosphere were incredible. Parents are required to volunteer/spend time at school, the halls and walls are alive with artwork and science projects, they have before-and-after

Just as importantly, the school fostered her love of art and music, too. We loved coming in and spending time in the classroom - we'll always have these wonderful memories.

Valeska has taught my child so much, it is just a continuation of the education that she receives at home. As they say, 'It takes a Village to raise a child'. I believe that you need many people to raise a child and you need to be involved. It is trully amazing.

My daughter and I love Valeska. They incorperate play experiences and learning throughout their school. They're idea of a family as a villiage is evident in all they do. Please visit their website at http://www.psd150.org/valeskahinton.
