One of our parents recently said:
"My daughter attended Advent Christian Preschool for the past 2 years. What stands out the most about Advent is the nurturing, caring and family environment. My daughter and I felt comfortable almost instantly and she enjoyed going to school. The teachers really get to know the students and encourage them to learn and grow in their own unique ways. I saw a tremendous social and academic growth in my daughter. She is ready and excited to start Kindergarten this Fall. Her younger sister is now starting in the 3 year old class and we are thrilled to be able to continue at Advent.”
