5 Reasons Parents Choose The Gardner School


Your sweet, little tykes can gain so much at an academically focused preschool! High-quality preschools for infants, toddlers, and pre-K kids set them up for success later down the road. The Gardner School’s daily educational and fun activities benefit children both academically and socially throughout elementary school. Our parents will happily tell you their reasoning for loving our classroom, but here are the top five reasons they choose us: 

Academically Focused Preschool
1. Academically-Focused for Ages Six Weeks to Six Years 

Did you know babies start listening while they are in the womb? Newborns start taking in information even at one month old! Sending them to The Gardner School will advance their learning through daily nurturing interactions, movement, and playtime. As they get older and reach preschool, our teachers prep them for kindergarten readiness, so they can excel at their next school. 

Preschool Locations2. Location

We currently have schools located in Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and near Washington, D.C. with multiple campuses in some states (and more schools to come)! Because of our strategic locations, we’ve allowed parents to easily drop off on their way to work or pick up at the end of the day. The Gardner School’s convenient locations in different neighborhoods easily work with your schedule! Find your school now!

3. Enrichment Classes 

With classes such as gymnastics, computers & technology, soccer, dance, cooking, karate, and more, we encourage our students to have a well-rounded skill set. The focused, small-group classes vary from school to school and help develop children’s personal interests under the guidance of talented professionals. Read more about our enrichment classes here.

4. Communication Between Teachers and Parents

Every day is a new experience for your child. We love being able to help them learn, and share these developments with our parents. Our PreciouStatus app allows our teachers to take daily pictures and send real time updates of our students to their parents, so they know how well everything is going! You can read more about our teacher-child relationships here.

Relationships at an Early Age
5. Relationships at an Early Age 

Early experiences with people frame the way children view the world: how they understand, communicate and behave, and even how they portray emotions and socialize. These experiences and connections set the stage for your children to learn and grow on their own. You can read more on The Importance of Relationships at an Early Age.
