Testimonials from SUMC Preschool Families

 

 

"Shenendehowa United Methodist Church Preschool was by far the most recommended"

 

 

"In winter of 2015, it was time to begin the search for the perfect preschool for our son James.  I spent lots of time talking with other moms who held values similar to those of our family.  Shenendehowa United Methodist Church Preschool was by far the most recommended.  I attended an open house and immediately enrolled my son.  Most impressive was the extensive curriculum knowledge of the staff, especially pertaining to early literacy.  It was also of utmost importance to our family that our child was in a faith based school encouraging of our son’s relationship with God.  James grew by leaps and bounds in his year of Pre-K.  He was well prepared for Kindergarten both academically and socially.  We have since enrolled our daughter Meara in the 3 year old program and most currently the 4 day Pre-K program.  My daughter is eager to arrive to school each day to a staff that provides a caring and professional environment.  We are thrilled with our experience at SUMC Preschool and will continue to enroll our last two children. We have truly found a home for our family and we’re grateful everyday for the blessing SUMC Preschool has been to our family."

"We couldn't be happier or more satisfied with the growth our children made academically, socially, and emotionally during their time at SUM."
"SUM has been the perfect foundation for school for our girls. They entered kindergarten fully prepared with readiness skills, both socially and academically. We have two graduated and one currently enrolled in the pre-K program. The staff is welcoming and caring for the well-being of the children. We couldn't be happier or more satisfied with the growth our children made academically, socially, and emotionally during their time at SUM."
The Sawyer Family
"our best indicator that the preschool is the best choice for our children is when our two daughters express their genuine excitement about going to school, as well as coming home to share their experiences and what they learned."

"My husband and I have been extremely pleased with Shenendehowa United Methodist Preschool. The staff are dedicated to creating a nurturing, positive learning environment for children at each developmental level.  There is a good balance of fostering positive friendships/ socialization skills through free play and practicing school readiness skills.  We also love their mission of creating a clean, environmentally safe atmosphere. 

 

While all of this is important, our best indicator that the preschool is the best choice for our children is when our two daughters express their genuine excitement about going to school, as well as coming home to share their experiences and what they learned."

The Mohan Family 

"SUMC was a top recommendation and one that also came from friends who are teachers."

"This is our fourth and final year of preschool at SUMC Preschool. When I began looking for a preschool for my now 5 year old I reached out to family and friends through social media to seek input. SUMC was a top recommendation and one that also came from friends who are teachers. We have been very happy from the start with the experiences our girls have gained. Each have had nurturing teachers, high quality programs that emphasized learning through play and many opportunities to grow and thrive. We would highly recommend our preschool to any parent searching for a high quality preschool experience!"

"We were very impressed with the program, how much my son enjoyed his time there and how much the teachers really cared about each student."

"We chose to enroll our kids in SUMC at a young age because I was very impressed with the availability of programs for the younger age groups.  This was a wonderful chance for my kids to socialize with other children, have independent time away from home and learn how to listen to other adults.  I really felt that this was a crucial step for the 2 year old year.  We were very impressed with the program, how much my son enjoyed his time there and how much the teachers really cared about each student.  When my next son was ready for the program, I was very excited to enroll him in the same programs.  The teachers in this preschool really do enjoy the children, getting to know them and their personalities and seeing them succeed."

"All of the teachers we've encountered here at SUMP have been kind, professional, and very knowledgeable." 

 

We were new to Clifton Park and had heard about Shenendehowa United Methodist Preschool from a friend. Our daughter is now in second grade in Shenendehowa and we feel that she was well prepared for entering Kindergarten through her time in the 3 year old and 4 year old classes here at SUMP. Our son is now attending the preschool and we're very happy with his progress! All of the teachers we've encountered here at SUMP have been kind, professional, and very knowledgeable.
