    • This preschool is amazing! My son has autism and the lovely lady in charge, Lisa, is a wonderful person who has helped our family when it has been very difficult to find preschool for our son with his ASD. She is knowledgeable and friendly and for the first time, I feel like my children will be in good hands and will be learning a great deal with Lisa and her very capable team. Can’t thank you enough.

    • My 3 children have all attended Pied Piper and have had great experiences. Having worked in childcare settings before, I must say that I am very impressed with the variety of activities available on a day by day basis. Keep it up, Pied Piper!

    • Pied Piper is a great preschool. All 3 of my children have attended and absolutely loved it! The teachers are amazing!

    • I have 3 kids and all of them have been to Pied Piper and LOVED it! The teachers and preschool are just wonderful! We drive here, from about 20 minutes away, specifically as we truly trust the teachers and are so pleased with their care and curriculum. Each day my kids would ask, “Is it a Pied Piper day?” I would definitely recommend this preschool!

    • The variety of activities/toys, crafts, games/songs, sensory bins, dress up, ride-on toys, playground, field trips, etc. always blows my mind.

    • Pied Piper is a great preschool program! All three of my children attended Pied Piper and they loved it. I really feel it prepared them for kindergarten and helped create the young readers that they are today. A diverse and fun school that let my kids learn and have fun at their own pace. Being a co-op program was great too. My kids really enjoyed having my wife and I involved in their fun and learning and of course the great field trips and theme days. Highly recommended for any family dynamic.
