What our parents say

Fantis preschool represents an excellent value for a child's education, particularly given the emphasis on foreign language and values.

—Parent '32

Our daughter is so incredibly happy, she gets up so early to be the first one there. More than academic excellence is the nurturing, loving, environment. There is no way to fail when you have so many hands ready to catch you.   

—Parent '21

It is a great community because the teachers and staff deeply care for the children. I love the academic excellence, lots of fun activities, after-school clubs, and special events.

—Parent '28

My daughter has completely blossomed at A. Fantis. The teachers, staff, and parent community are phenomenal, and I love the emphasis on character and values.

—Parent '27
