Our daughter had an amazing three years at Prince of Peace. Learning through play, outdoor adventures, endless creativity and a close-knit group of friends-we could not ask for anything more. Loving, dedicated teachers made POP a home away from home.
I stumbled upon POPPS through a recommendation on a Mom’s group on Facebook. I went to tour the place and fell in love with it. My daughter immediately felt right at home as soon as she entered the building. The environment is warm and the teachers and staff treat the students like family. My daughter has flourished in the year and a half that she has attended POPPS. She has grown into a quite confident and independent little 4-year old. She has acquired a multitude of age-appropriate life, play, school, and social skills thanks to POPPS. My husband and I particularly love the creative and engaging hands-on curriculum at POPPS. One day our daughter is learning about the ocean and using seaweed to roll her own sushi and the next day she’s planting tomatoes and helping to tend to the school’s garden. My younger son also attended the playgroup at POPPS this past year. It was by far his favorite day of the week. He asks to go to “school” each morning when he wakes up. He will start in the Stepping Stones program in the fall and he is so excited for it to begin!
POPPS has instilled a love of learning in our two children. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of preschool!
As an educator, I feel Prince of Peace Preschool teachers prepare their students, emotionally and academically, for a lifetime of learning. It is truly a magical place…

I searched for the perfect school for my 3 year old son, and found it at Prince of Peace preschool. All the staff adores my son and I would not trust him in anyone else’s hands. The learning is endless, the smiles from my son are heartwarming, the care and experience the staff shows is incredible. I travel with my son because he gets the care he needs and the learning he desires. I highly recommend this school and all of there programs to other parents. The learning is endless, the smiles from my son are heartwarming…,

Starting at the age of 2, Prince of Peace preschool offered a loving, hands-on environment to both my daughters. The early exposure to such a warm & friendly environment made the toddler-to-preschool transition that much easier. They really balanced their school time with the right amount of learning, play, and fun activities. There was always something exciting going on; whether it was a visit from a community member, a field trip, or just a really neat, well thought-out craft. The teachers were very warm, and kind-hearted. Also, the introduction to God and prayer were a great asset to have instilled in the kids at a young age.

Play, discovery and learning blend seamlesslly through free play and planned activities in my granddaughter’s class at POPPS. Her skilled dedicated teachers allow her the freedom to express her individuality while also encouraging her to interact effectively with her peers. I am confident that my granddaughter’s experience at POPPS offers the best preparation possible for her future success in school and in life. (Though it’s all just plain fun to her!)
POPPS is a warm and nurturing school that offers superior pre-school education. Our daughter attended the “Stepping Stones” program, which strengthened her overall pre-academic skills and prepared her well for Pre-K 4. She thrived on the educational crafts and activities, and the classroom stations encouraged free play and creativity. The student to teacher ratio was 2:5. She was fortunate to have Mrs. DiMauro and Mrs. Welsing as her teachers. They are compassionate, knowledgeable, approachable, and dedicated to the children. Our son attended the “Playmates” program and enjoyed the creative activities, which varied weekly based on a fun and educational theme. He particularly loved the “sensory table”, which promoted concentration and free play discovery. That you, POPPS for a wonderful experience!”
Prince of Peace Preschool not only provides the warmest, nurturing environment around, but also offers children the opportunity to learn and grow, socially and emotionally, in so many ways. It is hands-on learning at its finest!

Prince of Peace Preschool has been a wonderful place for my child to learn and grow. The warm, friendly staff has provided a nurturing environment, in which my son has thrived. Their program allowed for an easy transition whenever my son was ready to go into the next class. As a teacher and parent, I couldn’t be more grateful to have found a school that I can trust to give a quality education with the sincerity of staff that truly care.
