Sharon Academy is an extension of our family. When selecting a childcare facility, it was important to us to make sure we found a place that loved our children as much as we did and I can definitely say that we have found that. It is already hard leaving your children with someone else but I’ve never had any doubt that they are in the best care. Not only are our kids loved, Sharon Academy has prepared them academically for grade school and made that transition seamless. Choosing Sharon Academy was one of the best decisions we’ve made for our children and we will be forever grateful to them for our time there!
All three of our children have attended Sharon Academy and we could not be happier with the school and with the education they received (and one is still receiving!). All of the teachers and the directors are just top notch. The communication with parents is amazing and, most importantly, they truly make learning fun for our children.
When I began my search for a preschool, the best advice I received was, 'when you drop your whole heart off at school, make sure you feel that your child(ren) will be loved and safe while you are away.' I never, ever worried about my daughter when I drove away from Sharon Academy. The teachers and entire staff love the children like they're their very own. There were days when I would arrive for pick up, and my daughter would ask, 'Can I stay a little longer?' We all know the guilt that comes from being a working parent, and when your child does not want to leave, you know you have found a wonderful school. Oh, and bonus! While they're being loved and cared for so well, they also learn a lot! Upon graduation, my daughter was super prepared for Kindergarten. Sharon Academy is a true gem!
Sharon Academy feels like extended family. I know my children are loved and cared for every day when they are away from us. Sharon Academy teaches them to work well with others, trust their community, and establish independence, all keys to healthy development.
We joined the SA community when the original building was in the construction phase and Debbie and Brian's spectacular vision was coming to fruition. It felt like a leap of faith in the moment, but we went on to discover that Sharon Academy would be the most amazing blessing to our family. Our boys' teachers provided outstanding education, boundaries, communication, fun, creativity and love on a daily basis. The staff, Courtney, Debbie and Brian similarly provided us with unwavering confidence that our children were safe and cared for as their own. We as parents, finding our way through both bright and tough moments, were frequently energized by seeing a prior teacher steal a hug from the boys as we walked through the door, receiving a text from the director to check in when a child was ill, participating in community service projects, joining in the annual Thanksgiving dinner, and hearing encouraging words even when we didn't know we need them. Most importantly, with everyday experiences as well as through seasons of transitions, our boys were always clearly happy and thriving at SA. The saying goes it takes a village and we are so grateful that Sharon Academy was our village.
