Parent Testimonials

We had both of our children attend Georgetown Hill from the age of two years old. We loved all of the staff and teachers. We were able to place our trust in this school with our children which is hard to do as a first time parent. Not only was Georgetown Hill a nurturing school but it was also very educational. Our kids learned a lot and have gone on to kindergarten more than prepared. We loved that the families were involved and also enjoyed all of the special events that they organized for the kids. Halloween trunk or treating being our favorite. We would hands down refer this school to anyone looking for a preschool. My kids actually still beg to go back.

Lisa and Clay Goldberg

Our family discovered GHES by chance even though it is not in our immediate neighborhood. We were looking for a place for our first child -a 2 year old (now a flourishing kindergartener) - to blossom. Our first gut reaction after visiting was right... It is a well rounded, loving, and encouraging environment for a toddler to develop cognitively and socially. GHES provides a developmentally appropriate, creative, well thought out, yet flexible and balanced curriculum focused on play, learning, arts, and nurturing.
The teachers seem to genuinely enjoy their time with the children and are in touch with each individual child's needs. By the time our first child was half way through pre-K, we knew she was well prepared for Kindergarten and on her way to becoming a successful student and friend. We truly feel like we are part of the Georgetown Hill family.

The Tices

Georgetown Hill has become a second family to the Hecklingers! It is so reassuring to leave your young children in the care of those who love them like we do. Not only did they learn the necessary social and academic skills to be successful for Kindergarten, each one of us has made life long friends. It's been more than day-care, or pre-school, it's been a second home and we are so grateful. While we are excited that Henry, our youngest, has the adventures of elementary school ahead of him, we will miss our dear friends at Georgetown Hill tremendously.
