I cannot say how grateful I am for APPS. This is an excellent preschool and can only be of benefit to parents and their children who want a positive preschool experience.
I've seen a big growth in my daughter's maturity, social skills, and self-confidence thanks to what she has learned at APPS.
I was initially nervous about the time commitment that joining a co-op pre-school would entail, but it has been a huge blessing to have a front row seat to witness my son's emotional, social and academic growth. I'm so glad to have a direct impact on his first school experience.
