Our most favorite preschools in Raleigh

November 23, 2009 by Kat  

Our family has been around the block, as it relates to checking out Preschools. For one, we were (my version of) kicked out of more than one — before the school year even began — because of my son’s food allergies a few years ago. You really don’t want to get me started why, and which one… I’m not naming names.

Everything happens for a reason, though. And, because of this change in plans back in 2006, we have found two stellar preschools which we call our “own”.

If it means anything, we travel @ 30 minutes each way to our children’s Preschool. Some call us crazy; I call us serious about their education. Who knows? Only time will tell.

Creedmoor Road Baptist Preschool (you obviously don’t need to be Baptist to go there, obviously).  I searched HIGH AND LOW for a PreK that incorporated the Abeka Curriculum into their studies for their 4 year old class. My reasoning was that I researched North Raleigh Christian Academy when my oldest was like 18 months (yes, TOTAL over the top Mom… of which I am no longer… having a 4th was the best medicine for me! No time to be anal!). Anyway, since there’s no way we can afford North Raleigh Christian, I figured why not give them a jump start on this philosophy of teaching asap.  Anyway, the 2 teachers who instruct that class are beyond stellar, too.  As a result of their direction, coupled with the Abeka Curriculum, my 2 oldest began kindergarten reading on almost a 3rd grade level. The teachers are all ridiculously loving, and they accept children as young as 1 year old in their 5 day program (score!). Further, the hours at 9:45 am til 1:45 pm — which is very convenient for those of us with older children to get off to Elementary School. Again, I can’t say enough fabulous things about this school!
PS – “Aesthetically”, from the exterior AND the interior, it is no where’s near the nicest Preschool in the area. However, the love, patience, flexibility, and understanding of the teachers is pivotal. Remember, don’t judge a book by its cover.

Spanish for Fun - My two youngest go to this school 3 days per week, and to Creedmoor Road 2 days a week this year. Spanish for Fun (SFF) is a full-time Spanish Immersion Preschool, and — they are NOT kidding when they say “IMMERSION”. That’s right, ladies and gentleman, no English is spoken there. But, at their ages, they begin understanding fluent Spanish within a week or two. My 18 month old speak as much Spanish as he does English. What an incredible opportunity for them!
The classrooms are warm, friendly, and colorful… and the teachers COULD NOT BE NICER. Because I’m always running in and out with a few kids on my hips (we carpool), I haven’t had the chance to get to know any of the moms, but I feel as if I know the teachers really well. I can NOT say enough great things about the Owners of the school, as well as the Director, and the Teachers. Amazing.
