Parent Testimonials

  • “Just a note from our family to say THANK YOU and that we deeply appreciate what you do. This year, we had to move unexpectedly, and our preschooler had to leave his home, his friends, and his school.  Your program has meant the world to us and to him. You’ve allowed him  to just be 4 and to have something all his own. So often he’s had to play up with his big brother or play down with his little sister, but your program allowed him to be and play and learn exactly where he is. As a side note, he is also reading and writing so well because of the daily practice! But it’s more the routine, stability, and connection that we hoped for, and you’ve delivered it tenfold..”
  • “We stumbled upon you during the spring semester via a recommendation from a friend. My son just turned 3 this spring and we were planning to start a 2-morning preschool in the fall. Play to Learn brought us joy each day.”
  • “Having PTL is a great way to ensure my child is learning age-appropriate and interesting new material. I watch nearly all of the sessions with him (we eat our lunch together with Miss Jamie, Betsy and Miss Nancy), so it’s been helpful for me to see the lessons and activities because he often talks about them later.”
  • “My child is only 3 but when we started watching you during COVID, I was surprised how engaged he was! I knew it was worth paying for, so when you offered it for the summer, it was a no brainer for me. He enjoys it, is learning, and it gives me ideas of things we can talk about later while doing other activities.”

 

  • “My 3 year old has learned so much from your curriculum, she now writes her first and last name. She’s always talking about all she has learned including types of water and where they come from. I could go on and on, but I appreciate you growing these babies minds.”

 

  • “Our child will be starting kindergarten in the Fall and I am confident that she is prepared. I appreciate all of the time and effort you put in to the lessons, play packs and worksheets each week. She has absolutely loved being in your class and always talks about you! So, thank you, thank you, thank you for helping make this past school year easier and less stressful for this mama!”
  • “We are LOVING your program! I wish I had found it last fall. You are such an incredible blessing to our littlest & that blessing multiplies within our family more than I can say.”

 

  • “Our child’s daycare closed due to Covid and all of the shut downs in California. She missed learning, and I was working from home which made it so tough for me to try to teach and work at the same time. I found your videos in the spring and they were like a breath of fresh air! She loved Betsy, and Ms. Nancy, the singing and the games, and I got 30 minutes to do some work uninterrupted! As soon as you said you would have a summer session, we enrolled! It was well worth it!”

 

  • “Due to the pandemic, our daughter could no longer attend preschool. When I learned that virtual preschool was available, I was so excited. It has truly been a blessing during this difficult time. Both my 5 year old and 1 year old look forward to virtual preschool everyday. It has helped us maintain some normalcy and routine. Thank you!

Teachers love Virtual Preschool too!

  • “I am a director of a preschool. We enrolled in Virtual Preschool for enrichment activities and non-masked education. Your 30 minutes allows my teachers to perform covid cleaning protocols. Your support materials allow us consistent quality that is very easy to use. Covid has made things so much more stressful and difficult in daycare. Your program has lessened the load we are now bearing. I will definitely sign up for the fall as well.”
  • “I own a private preschool and my enrollment fell. Having just a few children, I was able to be flexible this summer and chose to follow your curriculum. I was looking for inspiration and learning new ways of teaching. YOU inspire me and I am learning how to design a circle time and make it a success by watching how you do it.”
  • “We love it all. As a former teacher, I quickly recognized sound pedagogy and the soft and caring demeanor of Miss Jamie and Nancy.”

  • Thank you so much for doing this! I am a Pre-K teacher, so I know all the work and planning that goes into every lesson. It is all laid out very well, and you can tell the thought and heart that was put into it.”
