Rob Long, on his daughter Emily

“This place is comfortable and really friendly,” he said. “(The parents) sit in here and watch and share stories. You can definitely tell an improvement in her skills, flexibility, and enthusiasm from the beginning to now.”

Nikki Johnson, on her 4-year-old daughter Jade

 “It’s a good way for her to release her energy and come out of her shell,” she said. “She is really shy and this is helping her build more self esteem.”

Emily Long, 4-year-old, beginning gymnastics class

 “I like it,” she said. “Trampoline is my favorite. When I need help, the lady helps me.”

A grateful Preschool Parent

I love SSGNL Preschool!  I feel our kids get a great education, and develop confidence in their athletic abilities at the same time. The profession staff is also wonderful - the ratio of teachers to kids means every child gets the individual attention they need.

Current Preschool Parent

The [best part of SSGNL are the] teachers. They were all so friendly and approacable. The director is always there to help and make the kids feel welcome. My daughter learned SO MUCH this year. I can't believe it! And she loves gymnastics time with Miss Megan. She is an amazing lady!!

Satisfied Parent

Parents' Night Out are a God-send!  Sometimes, it's good for parents to just have a break - and we know they'll have a blast while we are away for a few hours.
