What Parents are Saying:

My son Zach loves going to the Woodside School. The Woodside School provided us the flexible day schedule we needed to make this work for our family. The teachers are wonderful and the school facilities are second to none. We always feel good about bringing Zach to school in the morning because we know he is in a safe place where he can learn and grow each and every day.

– Matthew Nelson

My daughter had a wonderful time and really enjoyed going to Woodside School. The teachers showed her respect for her feelings and therefore they earned her respect also- I witnessed it every day when I picked her up and dropped her off. It certainly had made it easier on us as parents having to leave her each day. I left knowing that she would have fun; stimulating day ahead and she would be comforted by one of the caring professionals at Woodside. The staff does incredible work for the children at Woodside and the patience and special things they do to meet their individual needs is truly remarkable.

– Audrey and Jon

The staff at Woodside School have become more than teachers to my family. They have all become our friends. They do more than just teach my children, they take time to know then, understand them, and love them. They have become an extension of our family. There are no words that can express what we feel for all of them. When I drop my children off –the most important things in my life, I know that they are with people who care. In the classroom they are endless, their energy and ideas flow. The classrooms always look festive and every room is developmentally appropriate. All day the staff, goes, go, go with all the children. Yet, the next day they are all there with a smile and a positive attitude. Woodside is truly an amazing place for families and children.

– Patty and Adam

Sending my son to child care was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. But Woodside School is the best and the staff is also the best. All the teachers are warm, caring, loving, and sincere. They do a fabulous job.

– Lori

Woodside School provided my daughter with a happy and enriching environment to grow and learn in. We truly loved having her at Woodside during the past four years. The time passed so quickly- it seemed not so long ago, handing a crying toddler and her “doggy” to a teacher in the morning. She has formed many friendships and learned so much. She certainly has developed the skills needed to enter first grade with confidence.

– Kathy and Rob

We feel very lucky to have found such a caring and committed group of people to help raise our Children! The entire staff at Woodside does a wonderful job and we appreciate all their hard work to ensure our kids get the attention and stimulation they need. Woodside is a GREAT place for children!
