Parents were asked what they loved about The Giving Nest.
A wonderful, organized, caring, supportive environment. Challenging in the appropriate ways and nurturing as well. Wonderful focus on citizenship skills and fostering well-rounded children both emotionally, mentally and physically.
There is no better place to send your children to pre-k. So sad for my child to be leaving but you have instilled in her a love of learning. The lessons she learned there were priceless.
Incredible place to send your child!!
Beautiful program with wonderful staff and teachers. We are looking forward to next year . My children learned a lot.
We would love the staff to know how much we appreciate the love and care that you provide for all of the kids. We are very impressed how everyone (staff) pretty much know ALL of the students... or at least it seems... it gives the impression that the giving nest really is just more than a school/day care.
My experiences are all positive and I love everything about The Giving Nest.
We love the Giving nest and could go on and on about how much we love it! Could not be happier or more thankful that we found such a loving and nurturing school for our 2 kids.
Overall I could have not been more pleased with the school and teachers!! I am so excited to have my son be there again next year and for my daughter to start!!
The school is helmed by very talented and gifted women. The school runs like a well oiled machine. Exceptional attention to details, extremely well organized.
Highly appreciate the individual focus and fact that everyone knows who we are, thank you Mrs. Hannon and Ms. Tara for creating a family environment for your staff - it translates to very positive experiences for our children.
Both Mrs. Hannon and Mrs. Tara set such a positive, comfortable, welcoming and fun environment and they know the children by name. They clearly love what they do and it shows in how they treat our children and us parents!
I just want to say it’s all the staff works well together and that’s a great thing to have.
There is no place I would rather have my kids. My daughter started at 18 months with Ms. Tracy in Warren and finishing up this year in Watchung. She absolutely loves this school and so do we!
