What Parents are Saying About Our Preschool

My son has been at Jason Lee Discovery Preschool for 5 months. I have found the staff to be caring and engaging even when my little guy was having a hard time adjusting. There is a good balance between instruction and self-guided play. Knowing that my son is safe, well cared for, and being prepared for kindergarten gives me peace of mind.
