We've spent the last three years at CASY, with my oldest son recently finishing Pre-K, and my younger children still attending the school, both starting in the mini 2s. We have loved the school, all of the teachers are so caring and loving, and there is a great mix of play and learning. My oldest son was definitely ready for Kindergarten after going through Ms Jackie and Ms Holly's class, and the younger two love to go to school each day. There is great communication between the teachers, the school, and the parents, and I always feel like I know how everyone is doing, and what activities happen during the day. My kids love their teachers, and are excited to go to school. The community is great, and we've met so many great people here.”

"OK. Before I start my review about our experience at CASY, I will begin by sharing that both my husband and I come with a background in mental health and I also have worked doing ABA. We also had an incredibly awful experience at a preschool and we were not optimistic about changing him because we had lost faith in preschool facilities. This all changed very quickly when we began at CASY. We looked for many components when looking at an environment for our children and CASY was by far an exceptional experience for our family. Many of the teachers at CASY have been there for a long time, they’re experienced, knowledgeable, patient, and kind. Our Son Luca Loved his teachers, and although our second son only attended for 3 weeks (due to Covid-19), we noticed that when I spoke to the teacher to see how our little one was adjusting to the school setting, she shared a thorough observation and was pretty accurate with her observations about my child’s personality, skills, and abilities. This was an indicator that my child was being taken care of and properly supervised. The teachers at CASY focus on positive behaviors, modeling the right behavior, they show empathy, and they make it fun for the little ones in order to facilitate learning. If you notice, Miss Lauren or anyone else at the front desk will greet you with a smile and very calming energy.

We are glad we had the chance to experience CASY and highly recommend it.”

"CASY has become such a proud part of my son’s life. Upon recently relocating to Arizona my son has found such comfort and a true sense of community with in CASY. He has developed such beautiful friendships and social skills with an emphasis on inclusion and kindness. The staff goes above and beyond for each of the CASY families following up on any recent updates or just checking in to say hi! They are always available for any need both big and small. We love CASY"

"CASY Preschool has been a wonderful resource to our family. We have sent both of our daughters to CASY and have had a very good experience with both. We’ve enrolled our kids in their Mini Two’s program all the way up to the Junior K classes. We liked CASY initially because it was close to our house (at the time) and because we felt, comparatively, it was affordable. We came to really love CASY because of all of the art influenced mediums that were incorporated into the curriculum; like painting, singing, and performing. These were so very good for our daughter. It expanded her horizons both educationally and socially. We further fell in love with the school because of the teacher's dedication to the students, their caring and involvement. We got a ton of individual attention. We were informed of progress, provided with additional resources/ extracurriculars and given special attention when needed. I honestly don’t believe any other school would have worked with us the way that we needed nor provided us the level of concern and understanding that we required. I am forever grateful for the way we were treated and that our daughter was given such an environment in which she could learn and grow. We are still currently enrolled there and - though we may drive by a dozen other preschools on our way to and from - I truly wouldn’t go anywhere else. We have been enrolled at CASY since before they moved locations, and before the changeover in ownership. The current owners (Siemon’s) came on board and were warm and friendly. We have felt comfortable with the owners and Director, Lauren. They have accommodated our family’s needs. They are communicative, flexible, understanding, friendly and respectful. I trust them and believe they are creating a place where our children can blossom and excel. It so much more than a “glorified day-care." The teachers truly provide a full curriculum that challenges the kids while really allowing for true play. In this time of Covid, we also feel that the precautions being made are sufficient and the facilities are clean. I am grateful to the CASY Staff for taking such good care of our girls. As Preschool is the first place that the kids get accustomed to the school routine, peer interaction and assimilation, and code of conduct; CASY provides such a healthy and happy foundation for them to build upon as they enter into elementary school."

We provide the perfect balance of arts and academics to create a well-rounded child.
