Parent Testimonials

Maureen Vassallo

I am a parent of a three-year-old and a five-year-old at Kids are First. My children feel safe, love the teachers they learn from, and are excited about learning and going to school. My kids are always talking about all of the activities they do each day and I feel that Kids Are First is giving them an amazing start to their education! My children never hesitate to answer the question What did you do in pre-school today?

We love Kids Are First! My middle daughter attended both preschool and pre-k there and now my youngest just started her journey with them this year. Kathy and all of the teachers are wonderful. You are always greeted with smiles at drop off and surprised with adorable handcrafted artwork from your little one at pick up.

As a parent, it’s so important for me to know that my daughter's first school experience is filled with comfort, care, valuable education, and FUN! That is precisely what we have found at Kids Are First. The nurturing atmosphere filled with creative activities has helped our daughters thrive both academically and emotionally.

I highly recommend this school to any parent looking for a positive preschool experience. A huge thank you to all of the staff at Kids Are First for taking such great care of our little ones throughout these last few years.

Kids Are First has been part of our family for the past 4 years from preschool up through half-day Kindergarten, after school care, and summer camp. My children have loved every day they have been able to learn and play in the wonderfully caring and educational environment.  I have seen the constant work the staff and director put towards the daily lives of these kids and there is no other place I would rather my kids be!

We first became part of the Kids Are First Family when my son was in PM Kindergarten in the Pennridge School District, and we enrolled him in Kids Are First for morning Kindergarten and extended care. He had a fantastic year — he loved the classes, especially art and science. Perhaps his favorite part, though, was the van ride to his school with Ms. Joan! He grew so much that year, both emotionally and academically, and we are grateful to his teachers for their guidance. Since then, both he and his older sister have attended summer camp, and they have thrived at camp. Their Camp Counselors provide a schedule that keeps them engaged in fun and interesting activities, excited about the trips, and exhausted (in the best possible way!) from swimming (and the walk to Holiday House). On more than one occasion, they expressed dismay when learning that it was not a “Camp Day”. We highly recommend Kids Are First.

Just wanted to share some positive feedback - Allie loves playing soccer with Miss Taylor (she didn’t want to leave when I picked her up on Friday!). And then on Saturday at Deep Run, Miss Taylor stopped by during and after Allie’s soccer game. Allie was so happy. Just wanted you to know we really appreciate her kindness and being a good role model for Allie.

I do not mean to text after hours, but wanted to send you into the weekend with a "thank you." Dan does most of the dropping/picking up, but your staff has been the most inviting I've ever experienced. Today at drop off Lucy and Hannah didn't even say bye to me. Although it stung a little, I have NEVER been able to drop them off somewhere without a pout or feeling guilty. Today was a true testimony of the phenomenal staff you have and we are incredibly appreciative!
