Parent Testimonials

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.

Our daughter started at Georgetown Hill Woodley Gardens at age 3--ten years ago now. We chose the GHES program because the facility looked great--it was spotless, sunny, and cozy. Even better were the teachers who seemed to truly adore children. What really sold us was when we asked about outdoor playtime and were told that they children were outside playing and exploring as much as possible--we knew it was the right fit for us. Two years after our daughter began, our son joined the preschool ranks. We enjoyed another three years of wonderful school traditions: Thanksgiving lunch, trunk-or-treating, Vehicle Day, and more. After starting kindergarten, both children attended GHES school-age summer camps for years - coming home with tales of amazing field trips and in-house performers, new friends, fun cooking projects, and lots of swimming and outdoor fun. Most recently, our 7th grader has performed service learning hours back at the place we all still feel is "home" - the Georgetown Hill preschool program. Ten years from when she first entered the door, a toddler in a princess dress, she returned as a teenager to a building full of people who remember her, welcome her, and provide the best role models possible for how to nurture a child from toddlerhood through the teen years. Thank you, Georgetown Hill teachers and staff, for so many wonderful memories!
