Love this Place!

My son went here from the infant room all the way to Pre-K. It is a wonderful school with wonderful dedicated teachers. My son just thrived here. It was a safe and secure environment and I would recommend Miss Sandies to anyone.

The best in Novato

My son started there in the toddler room, is now in the pink room. My daughter just started in the infant room. I like this center a lot, and really feel that it is the best in Novato. Pam and Kent are very helpful, and really participate in supervising and caring for the children. They knew my son and cuddled with him after only a few weeks.
The teachers are very kind and dedicated, and they really care for the emotional needs of the children. They are very flexible in following your directions or requests in terms of feedings, sleeping etc. I LOVE that they enforce naptime from 1-3pm! They organize lots of activities for the kids, such as gymnastics, Spanish lessons (free), etc. One thing I really like is that after the toddler room, children move rooms about every 6 months, so the activities are really tailored to the child's age. It might seem scary to move to a whole new classroom and teachers so often, but actually because of the sahred yards and how all teachers sub in for others during breaks and lunch time, the kids get to know all teachers very fast, so the classroom is new and exciting but the teachers are familiar.

Miss Sandies

My daughter is 3 years old and loves Miss Sandies. Pam and Kent are very nice and helpful. They run the school. They offer music, gymnastics, Dance, and Spanish as extras. I was looking for a Preschool and Miss Sandies felt the closest to being a school. I think it will prepare her for Kindergarten.

I love that they have naptime from 1 - 3. The kids have such a busy day of activities that a nap is needed in my opinion. You send a lunch M - Th and on Fridays lunch is provided by the school for no extra cost.

The teachers offer 1 night a month to babysit the kids at the school from 6 - 10:30. They charge $35.00 per kid. The money goes directly to the teacher. It is a way for the teachers to earn extra money. Dinner and a movie is included for the kids. I find it reasonable considering most sitters I have found found charge $15.00 and hour for babysitting. My husband and I look forward to our 1 night a month date. It is also a good way for my daughter to interact with other teachers.

The kids are in the same age range in each class. When your child moves classrooms they will be moved with some familiar kids.

I highly recommend Miss Sandies and have nothing negative to say.

Wonderful Teachers! Awesome facility

Both my children attended Miss Sandie's and had a fantastic experience. The teaching staff was amazing. Both my children, who are very different, were challenged and just loved "going to school". They both graduated from Miss Sandie's and were very well prepared for Kindergarten, socially and academically.

The play areas are huge and stocked with great equipment. The classrooms are fresh, clean and modern. I highly recommend this school to anyone!
