Still trying to decide on a 4K program for your child for the fall?   Here is what one of our  4 year old families had to say about our Mustard Seed program.  Our family is happy for choosing Mustard Seed for our 4K program for so many reasons!  The teachers are amazing.  The teacher to student ratio is much better than at the public schools.  My son is a younger 4 year old and with the smaller class size and greater number of teachers per child I feel he has grasped the skills needed for the transition to kindergarten.  I also LOVE Mustard Seeds flexibility.  They have half day and full day options and offer before and after care with the same teachers.  They are always able to accommodate our needs!  The education is amazing, the teachers are wonderful, and we are so happy to have enrolled our son in Mustard Seeds 4K program.  It is worth every penny spent!  Please See Ms. Renee or Ms. Laurie if you have any questions about our program or if you would like to register your child.
