We have had two children go to ACP and I can not speak highly enough about this preschool. The teachers are very experienced and bring a kindness and compassion to their work that makes you feel very comfortable leaving your child there. The environment has been designed with play in mind and the children love being there. In addition to the amazing teachers the staff take heath and safety seriously and are great at communicating so you feel involved and included. I recommend APC to all my friends:).

We recently moved our 4 year old from a privately run facility to ACP after her brother attended 8 years ago and it was a pleasant surprise to still see some of the same familiar faces.
The difference in our child since she started at ACP is remarkable. She has flourished under the warm teachers and the welcoming environment and is happy , confident and loving every day at rainbow school. Every opportunity here is a learning opportunity!

We have had two children attend ACP and both have flourished in the wonderfully supportive environment. The staff are genuinely interested in building relationships with all children and their families, and they provide a supportive environment where the most outgoing children can thrive and shy and sensitive kids can settle and build their confidence. It is a very special place for families that I just cannot recommend highly enough!
