#1 Recommended Preschool by local teachers!
* Why Smarty Pants Preschool?
We are the BEST at what we do in our classroom. Its' not WHAT we teach its HOW we teach. Each of our students has a tailored curriculum just for THEM! Our staff is licensed/certified, highly trained, with years of experience to provide your student with the best educational foundation for success as they grow and learn toward the future!
*Why are our students so successful?
90% of our students rank in the top 10% of their class after our program! We pride ourselves in creating a real school experience with individualized curriculum for each of our students. As a school community, we are deeply committed to providing our students with the best education possible and that includes challenging every student to reach his or her full potential. We work one on one with Kindergarten teachers in the area as new curriculum and changes in education are rolled out. This solidifies our students to be ahead of the game and gain a higher self confidence as they enter Kindergarten.
It is also essential that you have the best possible information about how your child is doing in school and what areas may need additional focus to make sure they have a strong foundation needed for future success.
We believe that families' involvement in their child's education is one of the key ingredients to creating a successful school experience!
* What can I expect my student to learn?
Every student deserves individualized attention to their education needs. We have developed a curriculum unique to Smarty Pants that develops educational foundation to support a life long learner. 90% of our students are in the top 10% of their class! This is HUGE! You can find more about this above in the curriculum tab.
*Will my student be reading when they finish your program?
At Smarty Pants we do not believe in pushing students faster than they are ready. We teach a step by step process in developing skills for life long learning which is why our students test in the top 10% of their classes after they leave our program. Reading is skill that requires delicate learning foundations. If you push a student to read too soon it will cause them to miss crucial reading skills and also creates a great deal of frustration. As teachers we want each student to develop skills at their own pace, create the foundation of learning, and develop a passion for discovery on their own. When you develop these primary skills with a firm foundation that is when the true success comes.
If your student is ready to read we have an amazing program developed just for them- if they aren't we will keep developing those skills!!
* Why does Smarty Pants cost more than other local preschools?
You get what you pay for... simple as that.
QUALITY is the name of the game here folks. Because of the program we run, it just costs more to provide our students with the best. I developed Smart Pants preschool for my own kids so they could have the best experience possible and your littles don't deserve any less. We pride ourselves in providing our students with the BEST TEACHERS who are most efficient TOP performing/certified/licensed teachers in our area. Our classrooms are new, clean, and are supplied with the newest most up to date equipment in education. Our commercial location provides an atmosphere of attending a REAL school, which in turn makes for an easy transition when its time to attend kindergarten.
*What is the differences in classes you offer?

* How big are the class sizes?
As the Director of Smarty Pants I keep a close eye on the trends in our educational system to give our students the best possible outcome for success. I want our students to leave our program knowing what it feels like to be in a real classroom setting. I constantly get emails and phone calls from local teachers asking how we prepare our students to transition so well into Kindergarten classrooms. We set our students up for success by having the same amount of students in our classroom they can expect in their kindergarten classroom. How do you this and still have high performing students you say? By offering large and small group instruction with one on one learning with our teachers. Our classroom settings is ideal for individualized learning and success. Our students learn how to interact and problem solve in a larger group settings and also receive one on one learning in our small group instruction.
We keep a 9 to 1 student teacher ratio in our 3/4 class and 12 to 1 in our 4/5 classes for optimal learning success. Our students rotate in different groups to our different teachers who specialize in what they teach.
* Can I tour the classroom?
We would love to set up a tour! We do not take tours during class times. Our teachers are busy with giving our students 100% of their attention. :) We schedule tours on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursdays. Contact us to set up a time.
