WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT OUR ACADEMY
"McNeil Preschool has been like a second family to my daughter and I. She has been there since she was 6 weeks old and I have seen her progress tremendously. Now that she is almost four years old she is able to count in English and Spanish, write her ABCs in upper and lowercase, write her first and last name, and has an excellent vocabulary. She also participates in a soccer program available at the school. I owe so much credit to the teachers and staff at McNeil Preschool, as they have an overwhelming passion for teaching and hearts full of love and care for all the children. It is so comforting when I leave my daughter each day to know that she is in a safe and loving environment."
