We cannot say enough about our family’s experience with Cape Ann Preschool. Our 4-year-old daughter is our third child to go through their amazing program. We chose Cape Ann Preschool for our children for so many reasons, but the first was the warm and nurturing teachers. Each school day is greeted by smiles and hugs, and if transitions from home to school are ever difficult, it is these teachers who you want helping your child (and you!) through it. They are calm, gentle, experienced educators who clearly love their jobs and love experiencing life through the eyes of preschoolers.

Our two older children are now in 2nd grade and Kindergarten. Both entered elementary school without worry, fear, or reservation. They had attained a true love of learning from Cape Ann Preschool that transferred seamlessly to their next schools. Shelley and Meghan set them up for success early on by teaching them developmentally appropriate social skills, introducing them to letter sounds and numbers, allowing them to express themselves through dramatic and artistic play, and providing them with daily sensory experiences which our children loved. Mara, in the Pre-K classroom, then built upon those skills and experiences while also introducing a stellar pre-literacy program.
We are convinced there isn’t a better Pre-K program on Cape Ann.
Both of our older children entered Kindergarten as readers. This was truly amazing for one of our children, as at the start of Pre-K he couldn’t even write his name. What is even more outstanding is that the program is so much fun! Having such confidence entering a new school allowed our children to focus on the other essentials of Kindergarten like making new friends, learning new routines and sustaining the energy for five full school days. We are convinced there isn’t a better Pre-K program on Cape Ann.

We are so blessed to have found Cape Ann Preschool. Our daughter is so excited to be “moving up” to Mara’s classroom next year and we are so fortunate to know, without a doubt, where our fourth child will spend those truly special preschool years.
