I love teaching because: every day is a new adventure. As a teacher, I have the opportunity to help them learn and explore something new everyday!

I love teaching because: children are joyful, intelligent, funny, and loving. The opportunity to influence and be a part of their lives is both fun and humbling!

Zoe R.

Yellow Room

I love teaching because: I want to create an environment where kids love coming to school. Making their first school experience positive; for both the child and their family.

“Thank you so much for taking care of our baby girl. She always smiles when she sees you at drop off and we can tell she is happy. We appreciate that more than we can put into words. ”

quotes

Christine H. -Bright Horizons Parent

“My son was enrolled there for one year before we moved away from the West Side. Over the course of his enrollment at Chalk, he made incredible strides socially and academically. His teachers were always, without exception, kind, engaged, and communicative with feedback. Chalk's facility is clean, modern, and well maintained. The security system in place is excellent. Can't say enough good things about this preschool.”

“My appreciation for the teachers at Bright Horizons goes beyond the words that I can express. They extend themselves daily to our children's learning. Both of my sons were more than prepared to move forward in Kindergarten, thanks to Bright Horizons.”

Jessica F. -Bright Horizons Parent

“Both our kids are thriving and there's no better feeling to know your kids are well taken care of when you're away. We recommend Chalk Venice any and every chance we get! It has been such a blessing to our family!”

Ana

“We had a great experience at Chalk Preschool. Our son began preschool at Chalk when he was 2 years old and stayed until he transitioned to Kinder. We were pleased with the management, teachers and facility. Our son was very well prepared socially, emotionally and academically to enter Kinder on a larger campus. The teachers are highly educated, loving, energetic, and kind.”
