A Wonderful Place
My son 'graduated' from Somerset quite a few years ago, (he's a senior in high school now). I have always recommended the preschool to friends and acquaintances over those years, and find myself forwarding the website again today, which led me here to comments. My son made such good friends at Somerset, and most of the credit goes to the wonderful faculty (Ms. Nancy, Ms. Sheela, Ms. Anne, etc...). They all provided a healthy, early socialization environment that really helped him start to develop the friendship and problem-solving skills he needed at that early age, something much more difficult to do at home. I was also always very impressed with the fun, educational and creative activities they organized along with their patience and genuine kindness towards the children and families. My son was a student there the morning of the 9-11 attacks and I'll never forget the quiet compassion and care the staff projected to the class while so many of us Moms were running in, feeling so anxious and upset. So our time at Somerset 13-16 years ago have made it a 'must' to recommend to others.

The "Perfect Fit" For Our Family
When I needed to find a preschool for my daughter, I didn't want a "day-care", I wanted a school, with a structured learning program, proven success, and a strong family-oriented community of people who cared about their children like I cared for mine. I found all that and more at Somerset, and couldn't be happier with our decision to send our daughter there. This school topped my radar initially because numerous teachers highly raved of the program, and their experience there (which I believe is one of the highest forms of flattery- coming from other educated professionals in the field). After my initial tour, I was sold on the program and the teachers, and it has been an amazing experience. I've watched Ms. Nancy, Ms. Melissa, and Ms. Debbie help my daughter bloom and grow into a well mannered young woman, and the structure and guidance they have provided far surpassed my initial expectations. The administrators, other involved parents, and students only complete the package....I can't imagine where my daughter would be without her Somerset experience!

A Great Pre-School
My daughters are currently enrolled in their second year of Pre-school at Somerset. They have blossomed in the last year, and I am confident when I drop them off in the morning, that they are going to have a great day. They share their learning experiences, and I'm impressed by how well the staff does at keeping things fresh and new in the classroom. There are the usual pre-school activities (painting, role play, blocks and trucks), but every week there is a table where something new is introduced, and I think it keeps my girls from getting bored. The staff is always friendly and willing to accommodate!

We are enjoying your daughters in our preschool program. They are active, inquisitive and very responsive. Our teachers enjoy challenging them with activities that build on their interests, and activities that broaden their range of experiences. We are seeing tremendous growth in what they notice, in the quality and depth of the questions they ask, and in their ability to negotiate complex social interactions with their peers. They are fully engaged all of the time and their delight in learning new things is contagious! Thank you for taking the time to share your observations about our school.
6 years ago other place!
As much as we wanted to be selfish, and keep our little girl home with us to enjoy all the hours of the day and night; Somerset was just what we were looking for...home but with extras. Somerset delivered an exceptional, high quality, play-based, early childhood experience for our little girl. We believe she was well prepared socially, emotionally and academically for her next endeavor. We sought extended years with them and would have preferred to have our daughter stay with Somerset ideally to a third grade level or beyond, regrettably that's not in place (yet?). Warm, caring, personable, down to earth good people!

Thank you for your wonderful comments! We feel very fortunate to have had your daughter with us for her preschool, pre-kindergarten and young fives experiences. We seriously considered your request to extend our program through 2nd grade, as that has been a dream of ours too. However we simply could not find an appropriate space for these classrooms in our present facility or nearby. We also thank you for helping us as parent volunteers in our Sing-Along and Graduation programs. Your unique contributions made both of these programs very special. We will always consider you a part of our Somerset family.

Flexible and Age-appropriate
I love the flexibility of the pick the days your child attends, based on your family's needs. I also love to take advantage of "Drop-in" days for lunch or another session, if I have something else planned. I always know I have reliable child care in an enriched environment. They are play-based and have the most creative ideas! The faculty has the children's interests in mind when planning their themes. Each classroom is age appropriate and utilizes extensions and simplifications for every activity. This program makes the children feel safe and loved and I am thrilled to be a part of it!

Thank you, Tara for providing feedback about your experience at Somerset ECC. Our fundamental desire is to meet the needs of our children and their families. Offering flexibility in creating a child's regular schedule is one of our policies that is very popular with our parents. And while we are not a drop in program, in sessions where we have space, we are happy to accommodate a parent's need for an extra session when an unanticipated event arises.

Outstanding School-look no farther
I wanted my daughters first school experience to be outstanding. Somerset exceeded all my expectations. My daughter thrived and developed skills that continue to help her academically achieved above her peers even today. Her social and emotional growth was fostered by having two highly qualified degreed teachers who helped her build self-confidence, learn to creatively solve problems, think flexibly, and instilled a passion for learning. Her experience led me to join the team and become one of those teachers at Somerset. I put my teaching degree and experience to work helping children have an even better experience than my own child. Somerset offers so much more than any orhet school around, your child may never want to leave--mine still asks to come back and it has been 10 years😃!!

Miss Melissa, thank you for sharing your thoughts about your daughter’s experience at Somerset ECC and her continuing success. We also are enjoying your contributions in helping us offer young children an early educational experience that truly provides the wide range of foundational experiences that children need to thrive socially, emotionally and cognitively.
