"We have had the best experience at your school this year! We know our daughter loves all you guys, and all of her friends, too. She is always so excited to go to school, and you guys go above and beyond to make school a special experience for the kids. Kevin and I couldn't be happier, and we feel so lucky to be a part of LSS." - Michelle Giltner, 2013
"I have loved having our daughter there this year. She loves all of her teachers and really looks forward to seeing everyone each week. It is so nice to have such a great program at our church where she can learn more about our faith. I have really seen tremendous growth in her spiritual life, even though she is so little. I appreciate all that you and the staff do for our kids!" -Angela Waters, 2013
"Thank you, thank you, Sabrina Worrall, Darwin Blanchard, Lynn Witt, Catherine Barras, and all of the staff at Little Saints and Scholars! You have been a blessing to my family's life. You have been endlessly compassionate to my daughter, and she has blossomed socially, academically, and -- most importantly -- spiritually. You are a gift to our community. Thanks." -Bobbi Sheahan, 2012
"Little Saints and Scholars has played an integral role in preparing our son and daughter for full time school. The teachers are well qualified, caring individuals. With two instructors in every room my children received significant personal attention. The role of pre-school is to prepare children for regular school; to teach them about letters, numbers, and how to behave in a school setting. Little Saints and Scholars thouroughly accomplishes this, but as a Christian pre-school teaches the children that God loves them, and WHY they should be kind to others. By the time my son was in first grade, 3 out of the 5 GT first grade students in his school had attended pre-school at LS&S. While not a statiscally significant number, that is an incredible anecdote for the experience and education children receive at LS&S. Perhaps most importantly, both of our children love school and are excited about learning -- a precedant that was firmly set by their time at Little Saints and Scholars." - Allie and Mark Volpi, 2011
"Little Saints and Scholars was the perfect experience for our son. We enrolled Trey as a young 4 year old to the pre-school program with hopes that he'd make some new friends, gain self-confidence and the fundamentals of education. LS & S taught him so much more! After completing two years at the school, Trey is fully prepared to begin first grade at Smith Elementary (Wylie ISD). He retained the Kindergarten curriculum, made some lifelong friends and we have memories that we'll cherish forever. Our family especially loved that the curriculum at Little Saints and Scholars included faith formation and Spanish on a regular basis. Trey was always excited to come home and share everything that he learned.
Being that Trey was our first child, we wanted to confidently transition him from staying at home into a school system that we felt would nurture our child the same way. Little Saints and Scholars supports the family system and encourages parents to be involved, while all of the teachers are certified and fully capable. We even "lucked out" and had the Collin County Teacher of the Year" for Kindergarten. The school was a perfect fit for us: we loved that the kids were able to move from class to class - vs. staying in one classroom all day, we felt the tuition rates were very competitive for the education and care that was being provided, and the hours were just right - not too short and not too long for the students. We are so thankful for our decision to enroll Trey at LS & S and we can't wait until our daughter is ready to begin her education there in the next few years." - Shannon and Joe O'Toole, 2011
"My son attended Little Saints & Scholars Preschool for three years, and we absolutely loved it! He started as a three year old and just finished Kindergarten last spring. I found it to be a clean, safe, and nurturing environment for him, and a great way to transition to first grade. All of the teachers were wonderful. They were very friendly and warm. They seemed to genuinely care about each child and really seemed to enjoyworking with the children - this is so important! Any time I had a question, they were happy to talk with me about it; they were consistently very accessible and knowledgeable. This is also true for Ms. Sabrina and Ms. Darwin in the office, as well as the teachers. They gave me some great ideas for things we could work on at home based on my son's strengths and weaknesses, which was very helpful. The teachers sent weekly emails with lesson plan information and class updates, so I always knew what he was learning, which I appreciated. The outside play area was fun; my son really enjoyed playing there. We had very positive experiences at Little Saints & Scholars. It felt like home, and although my son likes first grade, he misses Little Saints." - Luisa Abbott, 2011
"We were exploring scholastic opportunities for our son in the fall of 2007. Though we were not sure if we were ready for our 3 year old to “leave the nest”, we were fortunate to be selective in our approach because our son, Andrew, stayed at home with mom. We were parishioners at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Richardson and inquired there first about their program. They were full and we remembered that our goddaughter had recently attended Little Saints and Scholars. We heard wonderful things about the school and Saint Anthony Catholic Church. After our initial meeting with the Director, we knew we had found the right place. LS&S became Andrew’s home away from home. As hard as it was to drop him off each day, we felt blessed knowing that he would be safe and nurtured, and were happy that the program provided him the tools to grow academically and spiritually. After a successful year in the 3 year old class, we enrolled him and our 2 year old daughter, Audrey, in the summer program.
Andrew completed 2 full scholastic years and 1 summer before starting kindergarten in a public school in the fall of 2009. Audrey completed 3 full scholastic years and 1 summer before starting kindergarten in the fall of 2011. Our kids have wonderful memories of their time at LS&S. We will certainly miss Trunk or Treat this year and the Thanksgiving and Christmas programs. The teachers and staff are very special individuals that have touched our hearts over the years by caring for our children as if they were family. That is what we will miss most …Thank you for everything." - The Paredes Family Ray, Jody, Andrew, and Audrey 2011
