“Chalk has been the best decision for our 2 year old. We love Nicole who is extremely warm, caring and dedicated to her work. All his teachers were great and they provided detailed feedback at the end of every quarter. Their assessment is rigorous and well designed.”



“We LOVE this school. My kids have attended various schools in Newport Beach, but this was by far our best preschool experience. The director, Nicole is amazing as are the teachers Miss Cindy and Miss Melissa. My daughter learned so much in such a short period of time here. I highly recommend it!”



“Thank you for a wonderful 10 weeks of toddler class. Rose has loved it so much and we have loved watching her growth as a result of your class. Thank you for providing her with her first “school” experience.”



“What a great place! Lovely teachers, fun learning atmosphere! The teachers are so warm and involved in the progression of the kids’ educations! A solid educational and fun learning experience from Green room all of the way through. I highly recommended this place to anyone who has a kind kid!!”



“Thank you for always greeting us with your bright smile every morning. I'll visit often when we drop off Sienne!”
