We feel lucky to have found Pascals for our daughter to attend. The teachers were always kind and compassionate and so welcoming every morning. There was always fun and engaging learning activities set up but also so many opportunities for free play too. 

Finding a preschool that provided nutritious food was also really key for us as full-time working parents. We would recommend Pascals to any families with out hesitation. 


I am eternally grateful for all Pascal’s does for Maple and I. Preschool has been a really stabilizing part of our lives, and we see the teachers and school a part of our extended family. It takes a village to raise our little people!
