    • My two children attended Home Away From Home academy and had an excellent pre-school education. One is now a junior in HS and one is a cadet at West Point, The US Military Academy and doing wonderful things …making positive contributions to society. I truly believe an excellent beginning…creating life learners is a major factor. Thank you. I still have their progress reports from Mrs. Phyllis. My 4 year old son told her he was a mathematician at the time. He is now studying engineering. Forever grateful

    • It is a great place for the kids to be in. The school teachers and owners are great. The curriculum is a great one that will keep the kids busy all the time and prepare them very well for the future. My kids loved it there and particularly my daughter. She was crying when she finished the last grade offered by the school. If you want a place for the kids to have the good foundation, this school is the place.
