Brandy’s Story

The Blueprints Pre-K program is wonderful. The teachers and staff are great! They make sure they take the time and energy for each student in the class. My son has grown and matured so much since the first day of Pre-K.

He comes home every day singing a new song, and sharing everything he has learned that day. I now have the confidence that my son will succeed in school, and I have to give that credit to his teacher, Mrs. Quarture, and to Mrs. Laura. Thank you for offering this program, and accepting my son.

Jennifer’s Story

This Pre-K program has changed our lives. My daughter has grown tremendously in terms of emotional and social development. Her teachers make themselves available for discussion about any and all questions/concerns. As a mother of a child with a diagnosis, it gives me great comfort to know that my child will be safe and cared for when I drop her off at school. I cannot speak highly enough about this particular classroom.The teachers have allied with our support team to make my daughter’s Pre-K experience as pleasant as can be, and she loves school!! She is now able to write her own name, identify her classmates’ names when seen; she can even count backward now. Marilyn and Jennifer really took the time to continually communicate with me, as well as to learn how best to relate and communicate with my daughter. I couldn’t be more pleased with them!!

Kristina’s Story

The Pre-K Program has had a positive impact on my son’s life as well as our family. My son loves going to school every day and he is so excited each day to show us the work that he did for the day. It makes it very easy for me to get him ready for school since he loves to be there. We have noticed such a positive change in him since he has been in Pre-K.He is proud of himself and is very social. Before he started Pre-K he was on the shy side around other children. He has learned so much this year and I am so grateful he had the opportunity to be a part of this program. I know he has learned what he needs to know for kindergarten.

Dawn’s Story

Our family loves the Pre-K program. My daughter has autism and before she started school, she really didn’t talk much, but now words are spilling out of her mouth. Everyone comments on how much she’s changed/improved in just a few months. She now listens to directions. She can count and everyday she’s saying new words. She’s four years old and loves getting up in the mornings and getting ready for school.She talks about school all the time. Her social skills have improved dramatically and we can’t wait until next year so her little brother can join her at school. My immediate and extended family thinks very highly of the Pre-K class. Thanks so much, it has helped my daughter so, so much.

Crystal’s Story

My daughter has learned so many wonderful things in your class. Sharing, caring, and listening to authority, respecting others and their personal items and space. Miss Mary and Miss Amy are loving, patient, considerate, and keep the parents up to date on accomplishments and where my daughter may need help. I am thankful to the staff at the Washington School for teaching my daughter so many things and for planning great activities in and out of school. My daughter loves being able to talk about her day and not just listening to everyone else at home talk about their day.

Keandra’s Story

I cannot express how much Ms. Marilyn and Miss Jennifer have impacted our lives. First of all they helped ensure my son’s safety in dealing with a peanut/tree nut allergy. I had no misgivings when I dropped him off in the mornings under their ever watchful eyes! Secondly, the love, patience and compassion that they have shown all of the children is unbelievable. They have become a part of our families. My children have blossomed in their classroom. We are very saddened to be leaving them next year!

Kayla’s Story

As a parent, I am so grateful that my daughter was able to participate in the Pre-K program. Her father and I both work full-time, and this program provided us with a safe place to send her to every day knowing she would be learning and interacting with children her own age. Her teachers have always been wonderful with her, and she is excited about the things she learns and the activities they do at school. I know that I would never have been able to provide her with all the great experiences she’s had at Pre-K at home, and feel confident that she is ready for kindergarten.

Chyane’s Story

The Pre-K program is definitely a blessing allowing us to provide him an early learning and socialization opportunity while his father and I hold full-time jobs. He has shown excitement with making his own friends and learning new things consistently. My son has expressed how he “loves” his teachers and singing songs also. We as a family are grateful for the Pre-K program, as well as all of the investors and teachers.

Rhonda’s Story

My daughter has been in the Pre-K program for 2 years. We just recently registered her for kindergarten where she had the opportunity to sit down with one of the kindergarten teachers. The kindergarten teacher then came back and talked to my husband and me. The kindergarten teacher said there are normally several things they tell parents to work on during the summer with their child prior to them starting kindergarten. She went on to say that there is nothing we need to work on this summer with our daughter because she is already well prepared to start kindergarten.

The reason my daughter is so prepared to go to kindergarten is because of all she has learned in the past two years in the Pre-K program. The Pre-K program provides a wonderful foundation for academics but it also provides a safe environment to learn social skills and to build confidence and self-esteem. There was a time when I was nervous about my daughter transitioning into the kindergarten setting, but now I realize that my daughter has all the tools she needs to make that transition a success, and there is no doubt in my mind that if she was not a part of the Pre-K program for the past two years that she would not be as prepared and excited to start kindergarten.

Angela’s Story

Before the Pre-K program, my son was home with me with little to no interaction with children his age. We wanted to put him in preschool, but could not afford it. When we learned of the Pre-K program we immediately signed him up. We were excited to learn he was accepted. Since then he has thrived. His teachers Ashley and Amy are amazing! I was impressed when my three year old came home able to write his first name.

He has since learned his address and phone number, numbers 1-20, and can recognize and write the whole alphabet. After two years I cannot say enough good things about the Pre-K Program at Ringgold and their staff. Keep up the good work!
