"Why we chose Sterling Nursery School.  We chose the school first, because we are Sterling residences and it was important to us that our child would get an opportunity to meet children that she would be in school with for years to come.  We loved the concept that once she became a school ager that she could take part in the before and after school programs and that she could get on and off the bus at the center.  When we visited the center we were impressed with the level of education that the teachers had there.  This was not a daycare, but instead a place that employed trained teachers and well run and managed by a college professor of early childhood education.  So many teachers on staff have worked at the center for over 10 years, to us was a sign of a happy work environment.  From the first day that we visited the school we could see that the teachers here were ones that could help our daughter learn and grow. 

Why we will stay at Sterling Nursery School.  Our daughter has been attending Sterling Nursery School for over two years.  She started at the school when she was fifteen months old.  At that time she was still our "little baby", but we knew that she needed more structure and education as she transitioned out of daycare and into a classroom setting.  We could not be more pleased with the care, curriculum and LOVE that she gets every day.  When we drop her off in the morning she is happy to go to school to be with her friends and teachers.  It warms our hearts to pick her up at the end of the day and hear about how she played with her friends, engaged in curriculum, like learning to write her name and recognize her letters.  When we do pretend play at home often times she asks to play teacher where she will act out the role of her teacher and she will teach us a "lesson".  To us that shows that she looks up to her teachers and sees them as role models.  We are thankful every day that we have such a wonderful place to bring our daughter and look forward to bringing our baby daughter very soon!"

Families are our best means of sharing what we do at Sterling Nursery School.
