Kent Place Encouraged Our Daughter to be the Very Best Version of Herself.

The curriculum isn’t “one size fits all,” so when my daughter mastered a particular task, her teachers would push her to go a little further. And when it was clear she was ready to read, the teachers began a guided reading group for her and several other children. My daughter’s focus and ability to work independently have made her transition to Primary School incredibly smooth — and I credit that to her amazing Preschool teachers. -Tara Zinna, parent
