What Our Parent's Say

My daughter loves going to this school. The teachers are fabulous, very caring and focused on my child’s academic, social and overall learning skills. Her Pre-K experience was outstanding and now that she’s in kindergarten, she is experiencing growth in reading, writing and social skills.  I like the fact that they have a chef to cater meals for all the children.  The school is so CLEAN!  This is an elite private school in Downey — Ms.Dey, President, Iffel International Inc.
