Queens >The Crayon Box
“great staff and teacher”
LOVE THIS PRESCHOOL! I am a mother of
3 little girls. Twins ages 5 and their younger sister who is 4. My girls have all been going here for almost 2 years now. The owner and director of the school Ms. Virginia is amazing! Very warm and welcoming and runs a very structured, clean, organized and fun environment for children. My twin daughters cried all day for almost 2 months, now I don't even get a goodbye in the mornings. The hours are awesome for a working parent, drop off at 7:30 and pick up no later than 6:00.
My twin daughters also have asthma and when they are sick with asthma episodes I need not to worry ONE BIT! My daughters get their treatments and the teachers keep to my schedule.
Academically this school rocks! HW every other night which consists of tracing, coloring, cutting & pasting. Only one sheet per HW night and it is very manageable. Breakfast and snacks are served at school only lunch has to be sent in. Which they warm up =)
I love love love this school and I am sad my twins will be going to kindergarten in September =(
WONDERFUL PRESCHOOL ENVIORNMENT. I have a 3 year old son who I previously had registered in nursery catholic school Immaculate conception. My sons experience in this school within 3 days was horrendous. I was recomended to The Crayon box school by a friend of mine who is a school teacher. As soon as I met virginia I knew my son would be safe. My son seemed so relaxed around her. His teachers are very patient and inform us everyday of his day in school , even if he ate good or bad since my son is a very bad eater. Both Christine and Dorothy have been a great help to my husband and I with our son. We are both so greatful and relaxed when we leave our child in there. We call and ask how his day is going and everyone is always so helpful. I am so greatful for all the help they have been to us. I recomend this school to anyone with my eyes closed. As a law enforcement officer I can tell you that my peace of mind is very important. I find everyone in the school to be exceptionaly warrm and patient . Nothing is perfect but I can assure you that they try. We thank them all for all the warm and naturing eviornment they provide for our child. Thank You all again and again.
My son attends this school and loves it! He is excited to go everyday and comes home every day learning new things. The teachers and staff, especially Ms. Virginia, the director, are great to him and all the children. It is a warm and loving enviroment, while at the same time being a great educational experience. Each week there is a different "theme" that the children work on and that are incorporated in the daily activities.
I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a wonderful preschool experience for their child!
A unique and amazing place to send your child....
My son has been lucky enough to be a part of the Crayon Box Family for a year now. I cannot say enough about this school! It is an amazing place where children are in a nurturing, loving, visually stimulating yet academically challenging environment. Ms. Virginia takes a sincere interest in each and every child that attends her school. She knows them all by name and even recognizes them by their cry! The teachers there work together and provide a welcoming environment that children look forward to everyday!
My son loves the Crayon Box and talks about his day and his teachers every evening. I know that my son is well taken care of while learning and growing all the while at the Crayon Box! Ms. Virginia and her staff are so supportive, accommodating and flexible which is always such a great help. It's all around the best of the best! Your child should be so lucky to be a part of the Crayon Box Family! :)
I love this School!.
I have two daughters and they absolutely love this school. My girls have been in previous schools and I was never completely happy with them. My youngest cried at her previous school for 2 straight weeks until I switched her to the Crayon Box. She loves school now! Ms. Virginia is very warm and welcoming and the teachers are extremely nurturing. My oldest is now in the after school program. She started kindergarten this year and is school bussed to the Crayon Box. She still wishes she could attend the Crayon Box full time but is happy she can at least go in the afternoon.
Parent Teacher communication is a key factor for me and I am happy that I get that 100% from the director and staff on a daily basis.
This is definitely a school where you can be confident and have peace of mind that your children will be cared for in the best environment.
Very Warm ,Nurturing Enviroment. My son loves , loves, loves,going to Crayon Box! Ms.Virginia & staff make you feel like family. I feel very secure leaving my son in their care.I also love that theyre open year round, because they have an exciting summer program, my older son cant wait for next summer! I am extremely happy with them,if your looking for a warm,caring, enriching enviroment for your child, Crayon Box should be your first and only choice!!!
Wonderful facility for your little one. I am a stay at home mom with a 2 1/2 yr old daughter that I recently enrolled at the Crayon Box Preschool. As I am sure many moms will agree with me, it is a very emotional adjustment for you and your child on their first day of school. This having been the case for my family, I can tell you so sincerely, that the Crayon Box staff made this transition for me, my husband and my daughter very easy and comfortable. Ms. Virginia is the director of the school. She is so wonderful and sincere. I know that she has my daughters best interests in mind. She has displayed nothing but kindness towards me and my family and my daughter just loves her. Her teacher, Miss Christine has also given me the confidence that I have definitely chosen the right place for my child to be at this time. She personally told me that she would treat my daughter just as if she were her own. These are the most important things to me as a parent, that I have chosen a safe and happy place for my daughter to learn and grow at this delicate age. I also had the pleasure of meeting other teachers on the staff and they're all so warm and friendly and know my daughter by name! On top of all of these positives, the school is just adorable. Classrooms are spacious (and clean), there is large gymnasium upstairs for the children to run around during playtime (my daughter loves it up there) and there's also a spacious outside playground for them to play. I am very happy to send my daughter to this school and very highly recommend calling Ms. Virginia today to any moms looking for a (flexible) first step in education for their child.
teachers. There are many activities in the school that can benifit the children; however some of the teachers can be pretty nasty. I guess it depends in the class your child is in. Just make sure your child likes his or her teacher and listen to them. If they say they don't want to go, ask them why. I've seen children being yelled at, pulled, pushed and cry uncontrollably because of a specific teacher. It usually happens when miss Virginia is not around. If your child does not want to go to that school, find another place. ( if you don't believe me, get a tiny camera and place it where it wont be noticed).
great staff and teacher. I was looking for a school for my son. The staff and teacher gave me there time and patience to the fullest capacity. The ensured that the children there was never left unattended. I got the same pleasant behaviour over the phone and in person. I am considering sending my son to the school, because of the staff, they are willing to work with the parents, in the best interest of the child.
