Love the school and the staf!

Jul 28, 2015 by Pouneh

Love the school and the staff. My sister attended Halsey almost 30 years ago and my cousin attended it about 24 years ago. I couldn't imagine my two girls attending any other preschool. As a paranoid mom, I never had any doubt about how my girls were treated. The school also prepared my oldest daughter, who is in Kindergarten now, for the skills necessary to be successful during her first year of elementary school.

Response: Thank you so much! We have loved having your family here for so many years! :)

By far the best preschool around

Apr 24, 2015 by Giti Doustkam

Halsey is by far the best preschool around. Jenni the owner is very hand on and really cares about the school. She is there every day and makes sure everything is running properly. The admin Jennifer goes above and beyond to accommodate the parents and the teachers are all very pleasant.

Halsey makes learning fun and the kids really pick up quickly. My son came home reciting Spanish colors we were amazed. The teachers have a lot of patience and really work with the kids.

Response: Gracias! :)

Thank you Halsey

Our daughter Annika started at Halsey when she was 2 years old and will be graduating this year. The teachers are so enthusiastic, attentive, and caring. They always have time to talk to us and give us updates, great tips, and reassurance being first time parents. Annika has learned so much and loves the art projects, field trips, and parties. Parents are welcomed to participate in many of the activities. She also developed an interest in dance in the Star Dreams program and plans to pursue this passion. We wanted to give a special thanks to Miss Jenni (owner) and Miss Jeri for making the transition so smooth. We like that Halsey is family owned and is not a chain. Miss Jenni (owner) is there every day and is warm and personable and knows all the children and the parents names. Miss Jeri has been teaching there longer than any of the teachers. She is there every morning when we drop off Annika. She always greets us and makes us feel welcome and gets our day started out right. She also lets Annika help her put away the Costco deliveries. Annika likes to help out around the school and thinks of herself as a junior staff. We can go to work and know that Annika is in good hands. Several of the teachers have been at Halsey for quite awhile and had or have their children there. This has been great for the kids and the parents having consistency and being able to build connections. We felt very comfortable the first day she started and knew we had made the right choice. Annika has made many friendships at Halsey and we have also become friends with many of the parents. We hope to stay in touch with these families and the Halsey family for a long time even after we leave, as many of us will be going to different schools. Halsey as set the bar very high so I hope her next school can meet our expectations. Annika loves Halsey so much she says she wants to work there when she grows up and have her kids go there. Thank you so much for giving our daughter a solid foundation!

Response: We are blushing! Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know you like what we are doing! We love having you and Annika here. :)

Halsey Schools is the best!

Halsey is the best possible preschool for my son. He's been attending Halsey since 4 months of age, and loves it. The teachers are wonderful and engaging. I couldn't imagine sending my children anywhere else!

Response: Thank you so MUCH!

We LOVE the school!

Both my daughters love the school. Teachers are compassionate and caring. Great place to start a child \'s school foundation.

School is clean and up to date with equipment and toys. Activities are organized nicely. Parents are made aware of the themes of the month through the schools monthly emails so that they can extend what is taught at school into the home.

I love this website. It keeps me informed of all the activities that will be taking place. I also love to see pictures of my girls during school events when I do not have the opportunity to attend them.

Response: And we Love you and your daughters! :)

Halsey is the best! And I am picky.

Loving! Caring! Always responsive to parent concerns. Halsey is the best! I am picky.

Response: It\'s ok to be picky! We like picky parents! :)

The next best thing

Jun 25, 2014 by Bernice Brennan

My son came to the infant center when he was 4 months old. I had to go back to work after my maternity leave and being a first time mom, I was extremely nervous about everything, including leaving my baby at daycare. Elenita and her staff made me feel very confident and comfortable about the entire process. I'm so grateful for their careful attention and genuine care for my son and all the babies at the infant center. I know daycare can't replace me, but with Elenita and her staff I feel like it's the next best thing. :)

Response: Thank you so very much for your kind words. We are so glad we have made you feel comfortable and confident with us. We love teaching and caring for our families.

My daughter loves to be there!

Staff are friendly. More importantly, my daughter loves to be there, so that says a lot about how good the teachers are.

Response: And we love having you and your daughter here!

Special thanks to Ms Jennifer, Ms Jenni & Ms Jeri

May 16, 2014 by Fiona Skenderlis-Kallis

A note of appreciation goes to Ms Jenni, Ms Jennifer, and Ms Jeri for being wonderful and caring to Chrysilia. Miss Jenni is always there to greet Chrysilia with a big smile, and make her feel at home. Ms Jennifer has been ever so helpful since we arrived to California. She takes time out to give us feedback, advice, and generally is a very wonderful and caring person. A very kind soul! Ms Jeri, for understanding Chrysilia\'s unique, and at times eccentric personality :). Ms Jeri is incredible in providing the support and guidance that Chrysilia needs to help further her development.

An immeasurable thanks goes to all 3 teaches! xxxx

Response: Thank you so much! What a great way to start our day! We love having you and Chrysilia here and look forward to seeing your family.
