I love this place. It is an exceptional preschool. It is always clean, the staff is friendly, experienced, and wonderful with my daughter. The outdoor playground is shielded from the sun by beautiful trees and safe. It is not all play however, as there is academics at appropriate levels throughout the day. I am particularly impressed with the level of security at the facility. The front entrance is via a security door only, therefore there is no way in for the unfamiliar or suspicious element. I highly recommend the Holloway preschool for your most precious possession. I have certainly gone through many bad experiences at other schools before coming here.

Like any place worth looking at it has it's policies and procedures but that's what makes it such unique place.
I've read the reviews and you can simply see the positives remarks are from parents who send their children to the Holloway Pre-School and negative comments are from parents who don't attend (but would like too, interestingly enough).
All places take waiting lists; money puts you on the list and shows interest after all it is a business. It's pricey but that is because they attract some great teachers who don't just watch the kids play but help them learn and grow. The school can customize its learning curriculum also. I have a child entering Kindergarten and I wanted her prepared for testing and for when she starts in the fall. The Holloway Pre-school not only helped with academic readiness but they assisted with getting her comfortable with the tests the private schools administer.
My wife and I pulled our daughter out of another overly jovial preschool and moved her to the Holloway Pre-school because she wasn't getting the academic segment she needed, and wow what a difference she was recently accepted to one of the top private schools and it would not have been possible if she wasn't given the academic preparation she received at the Holloway Pre-school.
However the Holloway Preschool is not all academic, they play plenty and have lots of activities each and every day. The activities range from cooking to yoga. It is a great blend of learning and fun IMO. And I feel completely comfortable with the safety of the school. They have a great entry system so that nobody can walk out into the street. There is a combination on door in the front that only parents know in order to open the door.
After having three nannies, three home day cares and two preschools over the last 5 years, I highly recommend considering the Holloway Pre-school.

We had a terrible experience with holloway. They are not respectful of spirited children and expect them to all fit into a mold. I have witnessed the staff not watching the children on the playground and then when an incident arises blame and punish the wrong child. They have one approach to teaching the children to interact and are unwilling to be flexible about it. The head of school thinks she knows so much about children because of her decades of experience that she seems to forget that ever child is different. If you have a go with the flow child and don't expect much in the way of academics then maybe this school will work for you. But if your child is overly smart very sprited and/or sensitive you will probably have a similar experience to what we had.
