    • As parents we strive daily to make decisions for our kids that will allow them to become successful in life and hope we are doing the right thing. Starting our 3 year old in the ILS pre-school program this year was one of those decisions and since he started, everyday we are reminded it is one of the best decisions we could have ever made.

    • My 3 1/2 yr old who just after a short time going excels in letter recognition and their sounds, words in Spanish, addition and subtraction.

      Trish
    • I have seen so many of the kids flourish with knowledge with their time at ILS; from learning music and playing the piano to beginning reading sight words for a pre-K student.
