"Little Disciples Pre-K program is superior! Mrs. Wizorek and Mrs. Filer are attentive and patient with the kids and let each proceed at their own pace. I love their morning routine that assigns each child a 'job' and encourages participation from everyone. All of the lessons are well thought out and combine biblical as well as necessary lessons to prepare for Kindergarten." ........Dawn M
