My name is Emily and I am 19 and Currently Attending UC Santa Cruz where I am a Marine Bio Major. When I was 4 I attended Blanches and to be honest it is one of the best experiences of my life. I felt so loved and supported and safe my entire time there and I cried when I had to stop going. I still remember painting rocks with water, or climbing the tree that leans against the fence or playing with the rabbits. I dont know what the place is like anymore and I havent been there since my mom came to say goodbye to blanche before she died but if it is half of the place it used to be this is the best place to send your child for preschool. There really is no comparison. You are not going to have the same experience if you go to some sterile anti bacterial hand washed ridden structured facility. Children are allowed to be creative and become self actualized at their own comfortable pace while being supported and cared for by amazing teachers. The whole atmosphere of the place is amazing. The yard is like the perfect magical land for children to explore and create new ways to play. I would never hope to be living in fresno again...ugh the heat and well ugh fresno!? but if I do have kids I could only hope that I could find an environment so perfect and teachers with the same philosophy and ideals as blanches..

We are so fortunate to have a preschool of this caliber here in Fresno. It is a truly a magical place where children can develop to their full potential. Adults frequently return to once again visit the special place of their childhood where they created lasting memories of play, learning and friendships. Words cannot adequately describe the experiences of Nosworthy's or the love we have for it.

Pros: Learning through natural play.

Cons: None.

What a magical place the play yard is! My son attended Nosworthy's for over 2 years and I attribute his confidence, thoughtfulness, wonderful manners, and amazing creativity to the understanding of the Nosworthy's staff. They just "get" kids. Often I have turned to them for advice about my children. True, it is not day care; but it was never intended to be. It is truly a shining star that celebrates a child's natural curiosity and zest for learning. My son is starting kindergarden this fall and excelled at his assessment! And I can rest assured that he has thoroughly enjoyed his years at home with me at a place where he can really just be a kid.

Pros: Follows students natural interests and intuition

I must respond to Sarah W.'s review...
About the yard: my son attended his whole preschool year and never complained about the yard. I think children feel comfortable in the cozy setting.

About getting day care for the price: One might be able to get preschool and day care for the same price, but it is in error to say the preschool would be of like quality. This school is geared toward appropriate child development, not trying to push preschoolers to reach outrageous standards. The children learn how to come up with their own ideas for play and learning as opposed to always having direction. I would describe the curriculum as: be a child, play, learn to learn, and learn to get along with other children.

My son has been attending the school for 6 months now. I would not send him anywhere else even for free! The teachers are very loving and encouraging to my child. The atmosphere inspires imagination and creativity and the children learn and play at their own pace. It is very much a play based school where children can choose do whatever interests them. Sometimes my son comes home with 2 or 3 projects he did that day or sometimes he comes home with nothing, saying he didn't feel like doing anything.

Sure it probably isn't the cheapest and it isn't a daycare but that wasn't important to me at all. I'm SO glad we found this place.

The house and yard are small, and for $25.00 a day I can get the same preschool experience for my children plus full day care. 4 hours is not long enough for the money.
