WE ARE Smarty Pants!
#1 Recommended Preschool by local teachers!
*Why Smarty Pants?
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 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 ensures our students entering Kindergarten ahead of the game with a higher self confidence.
*Will my student be reading when they finish your 4/5 year old program?
At Smarty Pants we do not believe in pushing students harder/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 the true success comes automatically.
If your student is ready to read, we have an amazing program developed just for them. If they aren't ready, we will keep developing those skills!!
