I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Barn, its teachers, and the school's community. We toured pretty much every preschool in town before choosing the Barn, which we loved immediately for its child-centric philosophy, gentle approach and small class sizes. Our kiddo was the youngest at the school when she started, and we were very concerned that her first school experience be positive. Nancy, Julia, Kathy and the other teachers are so dedicated, observant, nurturing and responsive! They really get to know the kids (it's amazing how much they notice even if they're only seeing your kid a few hours a week), and they really go to extraordinary lengths to work with every kid's needs and strengths. Our kiddo has had a very positive experience -- she just finished her first year, and by the last day was walking around like she owned the place!
