I initially was attracted to the warm environment created by the teachers and Iris, the director. Our children have excelled during their time in the school and have always had a special connection with their teachers. They were more than ready for Kindergarten, both on an emotional as well as academic level. I'm always confident they are having fun and getting specialized and individualized attention." — Elana L.

"Our daughter's three years at Mickey Fried Nursery School was key to fostering a love of play, exploration, learning, and friendship that prepared her to flourish in elementary school." — Gary M.
