I have two boys that attend Pines West Academy both from since they were 1 year old. Let's just say when I drop them off I feel secure that they are in a safe environment. I love the structure that Pines West Academy provides. The kids are constantly learning and I know this through the daily pictures that are emailed to me and by my conversations I have with my kids. From the vocabulary they use, exposure to agriculture, music class, art class, visits from the fire station, petting zoo, etc. The teaches are phenomenal from Ms. Meredhy, Ms. Mary, Ms. Ellen, Ms. Maria, Ms. Judy, Ms. Liseth, Ms. Sinady, Ms. Gerly, Ms. Terri. Without a doubt if Pines West Academy went all the way to High School my kids would definitely be there.

Pines West Academy is an active learning environment with teachers and support staff that truly care about the children enrolled there. My older son started with the VPK program and my younger son began in the 1yo room. The teachers are all kind and nurturing, as appropriate for the child's age. Beginning with the youngest students, they also reinforce important life skills, such as sharing, taking turns and listening. There are extracurricular activities available each week to the older children including soccer, ballet, karate, tennis, Lego robotics and others. I have enjoyed the special holiday shows and theme days coordinated by the school. My children are having fun and learning.....2 things that are important to me in a preschool.

Also, my 5yo attended the summer camp before going to Kindergarten and I was more than pleased with the variety of activities and the organization of the camp overall.

Wonderful program and caring staff. My son started attending Pines West during the beginning of summer. He was shy and new to any type of my childcare or school. The staff made us feel comfortable by making suggestions for an easy transition. He is now in the pre k program in Ms Sylvia's class and he loves it. It has become more social and has learned so much in only a few months. I never expected the staff to go above and beyond for him but they have. Each day I feel confident and secure in my decision to send him to Pines West .

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the school and staff. The teachers (whom have 10yrs plus at the school VERY important) genuinely show interest in your child's well-being and education. The curriculum is AMAZING it exposes the children to language based activities, art, music, sports, Spanish class, analytical & creative thinking. All staff are friendly and welcoming ( I have seen a very nice lady who cleans late afternoons greet every parent pickup there child)

Nothing beats receiving picture emails of your child learning to trace his name or during music, art or soccer while you work. I am fortunate enough to say my child goes to a great school.

Teacher Ellen, Maria, Terri, Sinady, Gerly, Judy - Thank you for being so dedicated and caring YOU GUYS ROCK

As a Speech Pathologist it is very important to me that the schools my children are exposed to plenty of language based activities and activities which help to refine your child as a whole. This is what I found at Pines West. The teachers are highly trained in the areas that are important to the development of young children (physically and in terms of language). They allow them to utilize their creativity and learn new vocabulary in innovative ways. My children both love this school and I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

I am happy to have my toddler at PWA. The teachers show REAL genuine interest in the education of our children's lives and really love what they do in every aspect. I love that most of the teachers have been there for a long time (little or no turnover) which shows that not only do they love to teach but PWA loves their teachers as well. When a teacher is happy, compensated and respected; they reciprocate kindness to our preschoolers and can reach their best potential which in turn is clearly seen in our children.
I am one of the MANY proud parents to be part of the PWA family. I've heard from parents of children even in High School how happy and comfortable they were to have their children attend PWA at one time. Terry, teachers and staff: KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! ....and THANK YOU for being the positive impact in our children's lives!

I love this school. It will definitely get your son or daughter ready to start kindergarten. The staff is like no other. I am truly pleased and couldn't ask for more.

I have been working at P.W.A for. 10 years, and I can proudly say that I'm part of a team that truly makes a difference in children lives. I believe the curriculum which we use at our school is one of the best for children. I'm honored to be a part of the P.W.A. Family.

As I began working for Pines West Academy 5 months ago, it never occurred to me what a shocker I was in for. I was introduced to toddlers and preschoolers with such high-leveled thinking. The curriculum and philosophy used in this school is one with such quality that I rate it top notch! I'm so proud of the school that I work for and I stand behind their beliefs one hundred percent. I cannot wait until my baby starts in November 2015!

I enjoy working at Pines West Academy because this is not only a school but a family. I enjoy working with the children and watching them grow academically and independently. The school has many perks for the staff to enjoy. They offer many seminars and classes that help us grow professionally as teachers.

I have worked for over fifteen years for Pines West Academy and have tremendous passion for what I do. I believe in our Visionary Bilingual Education Program that promotes thinking dispositions and a life full of balance, meaning and wisdom. It is so rewarding to see small children capable of powerful, critical, analytical and creative thinking and showing a real understanding of core values. What I love most, is no matter how "Big" the Edu1st company grows we are one big family supporting and learning from each other.

Working at this preschool has been a great experience for me. There has been such growth in myself as well as my teaching using the Vess curriculum. I see daily in my students curiosity, excitement and discovery. When I stop and reflect I cannot see myself teaching any other method and am internally grateful for all I've learned.
