    My son, Jayson, is about to finish his second year at St Paul’s preschool. When I was first looking for a preschool I was looking for something traditional to teach him how to be comfortable in a school like setting. This school has exceeded my expectations and has been a great support to our family these last two years. I am confident that he will do great in kindergarten next year and all of the other school years to come. The teachers are kind, professional and really care about each student and the director, Sheri, is just absolutely wonderful!

      I cannot say it enough….how blessed we are by the special families that we have come to know through our preschool program. Monica – You and Jayson have been such a wonderful addition to our preschool. It has been wonderful to watch Jayson learn and grow. We will definitely miss him when he moves on to kindergarten.

    We were referred to St. Paul’s by several families who just loved their experience – and we are so glad we chose it! The teachers are great! Our daughter loves Mrs. Dawson, Mrs. Monier and Mrs. Thompson, and comes home each day with a smile and excited to tell us about her day. We see how much she has learned and grown academically and socially in the past months. We appreciate that Mrs. Van Wormer, director, keeps parents informed. We will miss St. Paul’s next year!

      Thank you so much for your kind words. You daughter is absolutely wonderful and will truly be missed when she moves on. She is such a joy to have in the classroom. In addition to her loving, caring nature, she is also one smart cookie. She eagerly participates and does well in all aspects of school!

    We have been at St Pauls since 2013 and we love it here! Our daughter has enjoyed each year and is so better prepared for Kindergarten next year. Her teachers are amazing and the director is top notch. We are sending our middle son here next year and cannot wait and we will continue to send our children here!

      Maren – We have loved having your daughter, her charming smile and her amazing singing voice. What will our program be like without her when she moves on to kindergarten? We are excited her brother will be following in her footsteps!

    We have been at St. Paul’s for the past three years. We LOVE it here! The teachers and staff are so loving and great with the kids. My older son loves to go back and visit his old class and teacher and my son who is still attending is not happy on the days he doesn’t have school! St. Paul’s has such a good structure and makes it a fun learning experience for the kids. Thanks St. Paul’s!

      It has been a joy to have your two wonderful boys and the blessing of having you, Lynn, in our lives. You are an inspiration. St. Paul’s is more than just a school. We are a family, and are so glad you are a part of our family.

    We are a military family who moved to Tucson not knowing anyone who lived here- based on reviews I called St. Paul’s to get more information. It was the middle of summer when school was not in session and the director met me and gave me a tour. She also answered all my questions, I knew right away she cared about the program and the children. My daughter is now in her second year at St. Paul’s and I am so happy we decided to send her here. She is more than ready for kindergarten both academically and socially. On Mondays my daughter also attend the Soaring class that is offered. Every school morning she is excited to go to preschool and every afternoon she comes home happy and shares what she did. I will miss the community at St. Paul’s preschool when she starts kindergarten but what she has learned will last a lifetime!

      Laura, Thank you for your kind words. It has been such a joy watching your daughter grow these past two years at school. You will all be missed when she heads off to kindergarten.

    We have been with St. Pauls for three years and LOVE the care that goes into our girls learning and care. The girls have loved all their teachers and enjoy being at St. Paul’s. The 4/5 class rooms really helped prepare my oldest get ready for kinder. The younger class has helped my little one who is a free spirit like school. I also love all the projects that are sent home that show our personal touch from our kids, not the teachers.

    This was my daughter’s first school experience so I was very nervous about starting this journey. The loving and caring teachers and staff made this a wonderful experience and easy transition. Evelyn wakes up everyday saying ” I LOVE school”! St. Paul’s has truly laid a fantastic foundation for learning.
