We invite you to read what our happy parents have to say about their experience at Old Spanish Trail School:
"As a parent you want the best for your child, whether it is day care or education. So I began my search for the perfect school. The first stop was Old Spanish Trail School. When I stepped into this school I was greeted by a bubbly lady (Ms. Jeanne). She gave me the tour and showed me what this school was all about how tyhey educate the students and their philosophy.
Being a teacher I kept looking but my instincts and heart led me back tothis school. It was the best decision as a parent and an educator. Since he is my only son knowing that I could be a part of his day while I'm at work made a huge difference and calmed my mommy nerves down. Also, being able to leave my son in the morning with Ms. Dominique/Ms. Keisha made it so easy. They actually treated me as a person and took the time to get to know me and you can't find good quality staff like that. The rest of the staff is awesome as well they take care of the students there by playing, snack time or just a simple hug. They don't treat them as a number but a person.
The teachers are oustanding the activities that hang on the wall or in the classroom are geared to what they are teaching in the classroom. The great thing is that they give you a weekly brek down of what is to come in the week. My son will come home and tell me exactly what they are learning and how they did it. Any parent would want that from their child to be part of their learning process. This is not just a daycare it is a school with dedicated people who love to teach and reach the hearts of every child that comes through that door.
I can't express the gratitude, thankfulness and joy I have had this year in this school. I will definitely miss all of you a great deal. I not only found the perfect school, but I found the best people I can call my friends. Thank you again for the special gift you gave my son and a stepping stool to begin his journey in education."

"Our children have been attending the new Old Spanish Trail since the center opened and we have recommended them numerous times to both family and friends. They have wonderful teachers who truly care for the kids and their well-being. From the physical activity outdoors to the intellectually stimulating indoor activity time, OST has consistently demonstrated concern for the overall well-being of my children. It is very comforting as a working parent to be able to know your children are in a safe and caring environment with a staff you can trust."

"I couldn't be happier than I am with Old Spanish Trail school. I found OST after my daughter's previous school abruptly closed and I know after speaking with OST on the phone, that this was the place for my daughter. When I drop her off every morning, I know that all her needs will be met, as well as, being able to do fun, hands-on activities while learning at the same time. The entire staff is very professional and friendly. OST is exactly what I was look for in a school. The internet viewing is awesome! Thank you OST for doing a great job!"

"Old Spanish Trail Preschool is the most rewarding place to take my son. I have seen him grow so much in the time that he has been there. The staff there is incredible. They are a very talented group, and show so much love for the children they care for. Ms. Tasha is his most favorite teacher. She treats my child like her own, and that makes me feel real comfortable about leaving him there. They have an excellent curriculum, with a lot of hands on projects. I would recommend this center to anyone I know."

"I moved to Tucson with a 3 year old who was not yet talking and a 1 year old who wasn't even making an attempt. In 6 months I have noticed such a great growth in both of my boys. My 3 year is not only talking, but saying full sentences and conversing with myself and others. I am not the only one who can understand him anymore and he is more confident than ever. My 1 year old has started putting together sentences and learning many different words :) He's also trying his hand at potty training, though we are not experienced in it yet ;) I can't imagine not making the decision to put my babies in this wonderful place. The director and all the teachers feel like family and I have never once doubted thier love for my kids and my family as a whole. I have felt "at home" from day one and I will continue to recommend this school to everyone I know. My babies willing go to their assigned teachers with open arms and when I come to pick them up, they are always extremely content and laughing. I love this place and everyone in it, and it is without a doubt, the best investment I have ever made in my children's lives."

"I just wanted to take a moment to tell others what a wonderful school Old Spanish Trail is. I say school, not day care, because they go so far beyond just "watching" the kids till they are picked up. My grandchildren attend this school daily and it has been wonderful for their growth. Their teacher's Tasha and LaKeisha are absolutely wonderful. My grandkids go to them each morning with open arms and big smiles on their faces. I could not have asked for better people to watch my grandkids. It is just like dropping them off with family. Thanks for all you do. You will never know how much I appreciate you!"

"I look back to my daughters' first day at Old Spanish Trail. There were tears for all three of us as I left them in the 1 year olds' room. LaKeisha assured me that they would be alright and to have a good day. sure enough we all survived. She later told me that she held tham all through nap. IT IS THAT TYPE OF CARE THAT MAKES OLD SPANISH TRAIL TOP NOTCH! My husband and I enjoy watching our two daughters' language development and social skills blossom. We hea the teachers' names during the weekends and evenings. We have also enjoyed the end of the summer program and receiving all the art work. Old Spanish Trail was a wonderful first experience for our for our daughters and I'd recommend it to other parents! "
