    Our daughter is finishing up her 2nd and final year at St. Paul’s. I could not be happier with the experience and how much she has learned and grown since she started. The teachers do an amazing job connecting with each child and learning their individual strengths while pushing them to conquer new challenges. I feel confident that my child is fully prepped for Kindergarten and has learned concepts well beyond kindergarten expectations. St. Paul’s fosters a loving, nurturing, caring environment where communication with teachers is effortless. All of the art work, assignments, and weekly photos shared with us will be cherished forever.

      Wow, thank you Kristen! We have so enjoyed your family and watching your spunky daughter blossom over the last couple years. She has become our St Paul’s welcoming committee, befriending every student. 🙂

    Seeing the experiences of my nephew, niece, and most recently my oldest daughter at St. Paul’s has shown me what an awesome program this is for the kids. The teachers do an really amazing job of keeping kids engaged with a variety of fun and creative activities, and progress made by the kids is visible with each craft they bring home from school. Looking forward to seeing my youngest daughter and another nephew joining St. Paul’s in the fall! Thank you for creating such a great atmosphere for early learning for these kids!

    • The teachers really do put a lot of thought and effort into our curriculum. Thank you, John, for noticing! Looking forward to having the new crew on campus soon! So many families keep coming back . . . we appreciate your support and have loved seeing your families grow!

    We were so excited to put our daughter in this pre-school! My son plays basketball in their gym with Upward sports, he has for years. That’s how we discovered the pre-school and are so glad we did. We LOVE it! She’s in the Owl class and Mrs. Hollywood and Miss Monier are the two kindest, sweetest, and attentive teachers and people we have had the blessing of having in our lives. They are wonderful teachers and she’s learning so much. She can count super high now, read, she knows her colors and MATH even! They’ve learned patterns and greater than/ lesser than! This school has exceeded our expectations and is tremendously affordable. Her love for school started here and we are tremendously thankful. Those will be big shoes to fill in Kindergarten. Thank you all.

    My son attended St.Paul’s five years ago and the experience was so amazing we enrolled our daughter this last year. She has grown so much and loves every part of her days spent there. Honestly one of the be decisions we’ve ever made!! I would recommend St. Paul’s to anyone with a toddler!!!!

    I attended St. Paul’s preschool when I was a kid, and my mom raved about how great a preschool it was then. I am so glad I get to send my own kids there now, and it is indeed as great a school as I had heard from many others! All of the teachers have such a genuine heart for the kids, and I am constantly impressed with how much they do. My daughter has thrived socially and academically at St. Paul’s and they have prepared her well for kindergarten.

      Your family has been supporting St Paul’s almost as long as we’ve been around! We look forward to welcoming two more family members this fall. As an elementary school teacher, your words mean a lot. Thank you!

    Our daughter has been attending preschool for 2 years, the second year being St Pauls. We moved here from North Dakota and signed her up hoping it would help prepare her for kindergarten, and we are so happy with how much she has thrived here! We recently bought a house in a different area so we have to take her out before the year is over and we are so sad about it, but we’re confident that she’ll do great in kindergarten in the fall thanks to St Paul’s and all of the awesome teachers who take such pride in their work with the kids and really do go above and beyond.

    My daughter has been at St Paul’s for only 3 months so far and the amount she has learned and the changes in her social skills and imaginary play have been so amazing. She comes home with stories about all the activities, songs, and friends she has played with. Her teacher and the other staff are so caring and considerate and put in so much effort with all the art projects and dress-up days. We could not be happier with our daughter’s first school experience in an environment that is not too overwhelming but is also set up like elementary school. The teachers and director are great at keeping us informed and making sure our child is safe and feels cared for. Can’t wait to continue on into the 4yr group!

      We get such a kick out of your little lady, Kristen, and we are delighted to have your family join us this year! All of the teachers really do put their hearts and souls into St. Paul’s. Thank you for all the positive feedback.

    We had all 3 of our kids attend St. Paul’s over the course of the last 7 years and we are extremely grateful they did. It’s been such a great experience! The teachers always go above and beyond and our kids just love everyone there. We’re gonna be sad on the day our youngest finishes up there.

    The feeling in the St. Paul’s preschool classroom is positive, happy, loving, safe, and fun! It’s everything a little kid needs in order to feel comfortable and excited about preschool.

    My son went her there prior to COVID and the first year of COVID. The first year in person was amazing. My son learned so much and they were amazing with him. During COVID they still did all they could to help him learn. I absolutely given the opportunity again would send him to St. Paul’s.

    We moved my daughter here from another Christian school. What a difference St. Paul’s has made in her life. She is thriving! She loves coming to school and all the activities connected to learning letters. She is prepared for elementary school. We are so happy with the family feel at St. Paul’s.

    Saint Paul’s United methodist preschool is amazing, and the teachers stood by their students through COVID. Homework and worksheets were sent through email along with instructions for parents. We met twice a week on zoom until it was safe to meet in person once a week. Thanks to Saint Paul’s United Methodist Preschool, Isabel does not need another year of preschool and will be moving into kindergarten! Thank you to all the teachers at St. Paul’s for investing in my child.

    Our daughter loved St Paul’s Preschool. We cant wait for our baby boy to turn 3 so he can start preschool there. We love the care and teachers!! Best preschool in town.

    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!

    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.
