Has anyone put there kids in the Maine south pre-school program within Park Ridge? My twins got accepted in there they are turning 4 in June . they are a bit delayed in learning . But was looking for feedback if you liked it , your kids liked it, if you felt like they learned enough to be ready for kindergarten? Thank you

My daughter is currently part of the program. She loves it. I’ve found it to be a good transition with the short hours. She only turned 4 in November so she has another years of preschool which we will do elsewhere- only to change it up as I imagine the curriculum will be pretty much the same. I would think it would be a good option for your twins since the kids get so much hand on attention from the HS students. Pm me if you have any questions.

My children went and granddaughter goes there now! We loved it! Mrs. Joyce is great. Teachers are awesome and hands on. They were prepared for kindergarten!

I sent my first there, my two next in line have gone to Maine East, which I find to be a bit more academic, less daily crafty. Just fyi

I went there myself years ago and I was a teacher in the program and Ms. Joyce is wonderful and has been teaching the program since I went. Knows what she is doing. I think you will really enjoy the program.

I taught for the Maine East preschool program for 2 years. We always had positive feedback and the children loved it! I don’t know the new teacher as I graduated and Mrs. Flores retired that same year but I hear she’s wonderful!

Have they been to a preschool screening at Jefferson? They may qualify for services, if not, you can send them as a community peer and they receive classroom support from an SLP, OT and social worker. It’s an excellent preschool program. Both of my daughters attended as community peers and were very prepared for kindergarten. I’m also an SLP and worked in a similar program.
