KU - Crusader Preschool Reviews

  • Kim Ellis - 7 months ago

    KU Crusader is a little gem of a preschool that I wish would stay secret, but it's only fair to let families know how great it is! My twins started here at 3 and are now into their 2nd year as 4 years olds. The teaching staff from the director Megan to diploma teacher Sonia and casuals Julie, Cathy and Hien are all compassionate, caring, kind and challenge the children to be at their best, promote how being kind is cool, and foster skills for emotional self-regulation and management that all kids need as they navigate the world and transition from toddlers to "big kids" going to big school. There is a big emphasis on STEAM and outdoor play and exploration via the brand new water play feature in their shady garden, as well as arable garden beds where they learn about growing their own healthy fruit and vegetables. My children love the fairy gardens, playing among the palm trees and climbing, and the Rainbow room where arts and crafts come to life. No day ends without several artworks and surprise creations to come home! Best of all, my children are always keen to go in the morning and sad to leave - a sign of a perfect preschool.

    The incredible staff and management here have turned this preschool into a haven. They are so engaged and accepting, encouraging and responsive. They director has made some wonderful improvements to the space and program, but best of all is the teacher to student ratio and the close relationship the kids are able to form with the educators. My son just finished after 3 years here, and my daughter will be in her second year - we have hit the jackpot and I will absolutely be sending my third child here, no matter what the dropoff logistics entail.
