What a wonderful place to send you children. The teachers are amazing and the school property is wonderful. The program is the perfect mix of fun, excitment and core academics. It is a great place for children of all ages.

Yellow Duck is the BEST!
I have two children at Yellow Duck and I can not say enough about the school. The program and teachers are amazing!. The Directors are always available and very nurturing. My girls have shown such growth socially and academically. I look forward to next year to watching the girls experieince the Pre-K Program. It is a great place to send your children.

My children (three in total) one in kindergarten and two in preschool are at Yellow Duck. I can't say enough great things about this school. As a parent and a teacher myself I look for an academic, loving and creative school - well it is at Yellow Duck. The teachers are high energy and are up on the newest educational techniques. They even have smart boards in the classes. If you want everything in a great school it is at Yellow Duck. The mother and daughter team are always available to parents. I can tell they really care about their families.

I am a first time mom and my first experience with nursery school has been stressful. Thank goodness for the staff and directors of yellow duck prep. They have been so caring and understanding toward my son who is having a tough time transitioning. Annie is professional and compassionate, reassuring me every step of the way. They are always available and approachable and I am so grateful. At Yellow duck prep academics are a huge focus but social and emotional development is highly emphasized. I highly recommend this school!

My oldest son attended Yellow Duck. We started in a Mommy & Me that turned into a 2 year old class. A wonderful experience. My son gained confidence and the seperation anxiety was almost non-exisitence. I gained a bunch of close friends. We continued on to the 3 year old class and finally the 4 year old class. My son learned so much, I recommend this program to so many people. Actually 5 people I referred go there and are so happy I told them about it. I am now in preparing to send my second child there and can't be happier about doing it. Being from a teaching background I know what an enriching environment Yellow Duck is.

Yellow Duck is the perfect fit for my family. Directors Anne and Joan are always available and a valuable resource for any parent to have, especially being new to Monmouth County. I found YD provided a strong academic environment, wonderful teachers and a beautiful campus. Thanks to YD, my son cannot wait to go back to school and we look forward to our younger child starting in the fall.

Yellow Duck in my opinion is a scam!! They promised that my child would be in an "acedemic environment" and the only thing that was gained was arts and crafts skills! I could have done that myself and saved my money!! To make matters worse, the assistant director Annie was constantly brash and rude to not only parents, but to the staff as well (not something i want my child to see). Overall, i would not recommend this school to anyone and will not be re-enrolling my child there next year.

Yellow Duck Nursery School has been a wonderful experience for my child. The school has strong academics along with a warm and caring environment. The teachers make learning fun. My child loves to go outside during recess and play on the beautiful school grounds. I am very happy at Yellow Duck and so is my child!

Both my children attended Yellow Duck. Coming from New York, I did not know what to expect. The School was recommended to me by a family friend and it was the best decision I made for their nursery school experience. They loved the attention they recieved from the teachers as well as the directors Miss Joan and Miss Anne...They were fortunate to experience not only the wonderful school curriculum but the amazing summer camp as well. It's no wonder why they've been around for so long..their thoughtfulness for both the children and parents is unprecedented. My children LOVE visiting and I now have my stepson in the 4 year old program 5 days a week. He can't wait to go to school everyday. I will always be grateful to the whole Yellow Duck Family!!

My son, Michael has been attending Yellowduck for five months now. Moving here from New York was a big transition for Michael. He was upset about the move and leaving his school and friends back in New York. But I must say that Annie has been wonderful to Michael and myself, so patient and understanding and has made the transition for Michael flow easily. I thank you all at Yellowduck for being the special and caring people that you are. God Bless!

I have nothing but accolades for this school! My 4 year old begs for school every day. It's amazing that with everything Anne and Joan have going on they are still able to be so hands on with all the teachers and children. I love going to a family run school. The entire staff really is second to none!Sincerely,Marissa M.

The Co-director (ANNE) of the school is cold and outright nasty to students and parents. She had the audacity to call my house at 8:30pm on a school night b/c she heard i was "talking behind her back". I am not joking!!! When i explained to her that i am not happy with her or the school she expelled my innocent 4 year old son and then proceeded to lie to her mother (Joan) the Director, and say that she expelled my son b/c I cursed at her. I did read her the riot act but not until after her nonsense about rumors and after she expelled my child. If you are looking for a warm, nurturing environment, this is not your school. Keep looking, your child will thank you for it!

My 3 yr old twins started Yellow Duck Last year. The boys & I had such a wonderful positive and supportive experience, in Miss Antonietta's class. They entered a class with ease. The teachers and staff were welcoming and helped out children gain the independence they needed to go into a class in January without me. The classroom was a warm, fun and educational; environment. They returned this Fall and we are off to another great year. Thank-you Directors and teachers.

This is my son's 1st year at Yellow Duck Preparatory, after my 3 children attended their camp. I love his teacher, Miss Michele. She taught in public schools for 10 yrs and she is fantastic. The Directors, Joan and Anne are always walking through the classrooms and their doors are always open to talk with them. As a parent that accessibility and involvement of directors is invaluable for me and my child. I would recommend this school to everyone!

I signed my children up at Yellow Duck Prep School because of the owner, Joan Klein and her co-director/daughter, Anne. I loved the warm family environment. My kids, now 8 & 9 excel at school. You won't find more caring Directors anywhere! One parent out of 100's wrote false comments here & it upsets me. One Director (out of 3) decided she couldn't go from part-time to full-time, so her upset friend wrote untrue comments. That Director was a teacher, who trained to become a Director. She never had anything to do with writing curriculum. The main lifelong Director, Joan started this elite pre-school & she is still there along with her daughter/co-director for the past 2 decades. We love this school

This was an excellent run school because of the director who had been there for 16 yrs. They let her go and she was the ONLY reason people liked it . She knew every parents' name, and all the students. Her curriculum was great and now its gone. I went there for 6 years and the owner never even said Hello to anyone, not even my children. And now she is running the school? I won't be sending my baby there that's for sure!!!

PROS: none
CONS: No director who even tries to get to know the children

Yellow Duck is a very nice nursery school for children. They are very clean and organized. The staff was extremely warm and friendly and loves the children. There program was very well run and had a great balance of learning and play. They offered a few different programs to fit your schedule needs. The prices were reasonable as well.
