What our parents say about Circle of Friends

We absolutely loved our time at Circle of Friends. This program was the perfect balance of learning and fun. Our daughter grew so much in the time she's been with the program, socially, emotionally and intellectually. The teachers are amazing and I cannot sing their praises enough! Highly recommend!

What our parents say about Circle of Friends

The teachers at this school are caring, thoughtful and go above and beyond for the children and parents. The children learn so much every class. Our 4 year old has grown a ton in one year. He knows all shapes, colors, how to count to 100, how to add small numbers, his full name, how to follow instructions ... he is so ready for the 4-5 year old preschool class!
