What Our Parents Are Saying
When making a decision as important as choosing child care and early childhood education, a recommendation from another family can make all the difference. Hear what families have to say about their experience with The Orchard School.
Before we found the Orchard, my daughter’s early preschool experience was terrible. We experienced teacher turnover once a month and the last teacher ignored my daughter for 30 minutes at a time. My daughter began to act out and I saw a regression in her abilities. She stopped talking and was visibly depressed. A close friend recommended the Orchard School, so I toured it. From the moment I stepped into the foyer I knew this place was special. Yes, it was clean and pretty but more importantly it felt warm and peaceful. The children in the classrooms looked happy and so did the teachers. It’s so important for the teachers to be happy and kind because the children reflect this. There was an immediate change in my daughter’s behavior and slowly over time as she gained confidence and Trust she blossomed! I can go to work without worrying about my daughter. Every teacher has been amazing. The curriculum is wonderful, and I love that they get their hands dirty in the garden! Young children are supposed to have sensory input and be encouraged to explore! We’ve been here for a couple months and now my daughter doesn’t want to leave when I pick her up from school. I love this place, they are thoughtful and take wonderful care of their students. It is a family, we feel blessed and spoiled here. If you are looking for the best preschool in north Texas, it’s the Orchard School! Monica C.
The Orchard School is a second home to both of our children. Our children have thrived with low teacher to student ratio. I love seeing pictures of them engaged in their day. The curriculum is challenging, thought provoking, and most importantly fun! My children love to bring home herbs, or tomatoes that they have helped grow. My oldest is particularly fond of days he gets to participate in yoga, or soccer. The administration and teachers have been incredibly kind. I have never seen so much patience, and strength of character. You can tell how much they adore their “children” at the school. The teachers have helped our children grow in so many ways from tricks to eat their vegetables to how to control their impulses. We feel incredibly lucky to have found a place as special as The Orchard School. Adrienne P.
This school is truly one of a kind. They offer an amazing curriculum and the teachers are incredible, but it is so much more than that. It is a community and a home away from home. When I drop my son off at school I know they are going to love and care for him as I do at home. They genuinely care about my son and want to see him grow, explore and succeed. There will never be enough words of praise and gratitude I could share about this school, staff and community that surrounds it. I love this beautiful little school and I would highly recommend it to anyone! Erin B.
The Orchard School is truly one-of-a-kind. From the highly-rated curriculum, the dedicated (and educated!) teachers, the beautiful building, the outdoor classrooms, and the Bridges program, I am confident every aspect of this school will exceed your expectations. We toured countless Plano-area schools, and even enrolled in a few, before finding our home at the Orchard School. The feeling of community here is priceless, and we are certain there is nowhere we would rather be! Shannon M.
The Orchard School has been such a blessing for my child! My daughter was 4 months old when she started attending and she has loved every class and every teacher that has been a part of her journey so far. Now 2 and a half years old, she is an outgoing, well socialized, mindful, well- spoken toddler. Each one of her teachers has poured love and knowledge into her. Every day, as we leave the school, Stella makes a point to hug her teachers and all of the teachers in the other classrooms. As a parent, I love that the walls of the school are adorned with encouraging quotes and art made by the kids. I am thankful for the diversity, mindfulness and holistic approach to teaching at the school. From yoga in the garden to music with Mr. David the kids are provided such well-rounded sources of learning. Each staff member at The Orchard School holds a special place in my heart. Thank you for loving my child! Stephonie D.
Love this school and the teachers that make it so special. Our 2 yr. old loves arriving for her morning hugs and is loved on all day. The focused curriculum has accelerated her vocabulary and her love for learning is just beginning! Every teacher is warm and friendly. We are so happy to be a part of the Orchard family. Tracy M.
