"I am very pleased with our experience with Small Wonders Preschool! I appreciate the small class sizes and the attention to academics, specifically the Zoophonics program. All of this, for a very reasonable price, making it one of Longmont's best kept secrets."

---The Mathey Family

"We had Grayson's first [kindergarten] parent teachers conference yesterday, he's doing so well. Thank you for really encouraging me on how ready he was for kindergarten. His teacher wanted to know where he went to preschool because of how many great habits he has. All the little details you work so hard on with them are really paying off. I gave the highest praise I could and she said she would add Small Wonders to her very short list of recommended preschools. Thank you again for all your time and love you gave Preslie and Grayson. They wouldn't be doing as well as they are if it weren't for the amazing start you gave them"
