"If you are considering a preschool program in the Stow area, look no further! Anne, the program director and my daughter's preschool teacher is an amazing teacher! She is incredibly thoughtful, patient, kind, and most importantly she knows my daughter and is pushing her in just the right way to be prepared academically and socially as she begins Kindergarten in the Fall. I can't say enough about how impactful the project based approach used at the Nest has been to her learning. She is taking away key skills in learning to collaborate and communicate with other children. Anne supports problem solving and critical thinking everyday and sparks creativity that has carried over into our home. All learning is through play!! My daughter loves going to school and looks forward to it everyday! If I had a choice, she would stay at The Nest for Kindergarten too. I recently read that 90% of a child's brain is formed by the age of 5, which emphasizes even more the importance of making sure experiences and learning are strong and developmentally appropriate prior to Kindergarten (firstthingsfirst.org/ear…). I am so, so, grateful that she had the opportunity to learn and grow at the Nest." -Michelle S
"This preschool program is incredible! Anne, the program's director, has created a school that truly stands out from other preschools in the area. Anne's approach to learning has had a daily impact on the academic and social growth of my son. As a parent of a two-year-old that attends The Nest four days per week, I have come to discover first-hand that Anne truly personalizes instruction for my child and develops curriculum that is unique to his interests. Anne communicates my son's progress daily to me when I pick him up and also through an online portfolio that she manages that provides my family with highlights from his day. Moreover, I can't say how nice it is to be surrounded by other families in her program that are positive, kind, and raising great kids of their own! If you have a son or daughter between the age of two and four and are looking for a preschool that will truly put them on the path to success in life, then contact Anne immediately! P.S. The preschool is nestled inside of First Christian Church of Stow and both the staff and members of the congregation that I have met have gone above and beyond to make my family feel welcome each time we have visited." -Dan R.
"Miss Anne is an AMAZING teacher. Mav has learned SO much from her that he is surprising me with all he knows! He enjoys going to “Miss Anne’s” and telling me all about his friends and what they did that day. Miss Anne is also so sweet, patient, and kind! I’ve seen her in action and she is able to pack SO MUCH into a short amount of time and the students don’t even KNOW they are learning! Check. This. Program. Out!" -Carol F.
"Mrs. Anne is a wonderful educator! She is calm, fun, kind, upbeat and perfect at differentiating activities for the kiddos! I wish she could teach my son longer than just preschool!" -Sarah C.
