Yes, Grandview has a Preschool and my Kid Freakin Loves It

In my line of work, I talk to a lot of moms. A LOT of moms. And because of the age of my daughter, a topic that comes up often is the “Boca Raton preschool.”

Which one is best? Can I afford a Boca Raton preschool? Does it have aftercare? Can my child handle it full time or should he/she only go part time?

I would like to think I’m slowly becoming an expert on the topic, having chosen #dailybocaavery‘s a few years ago. And the decision is never easy for any family– I see that. But I’ve found that very few people even realize that the one we chose for her even has a Boca Raton preschool. There’s no way to state it other than bluntly:

Yes, Grandview Preparatory School has a Boca Raton preschool and my kid loves it. I’m spreading the word! Boca Raton preschool

Yes, your 3 or 4 year-old will wear a uniform (it’s too cute–from Lands’ End) and participate in most of the programs and activities the rest of the school does, which I think is awesome. It goes up to grade 12 by the way…

Many of my readers get a taste of Grandview before their child turns 3 by joining our “Modern Boca Mommy & Me” program for babies and toddlers. That’s how my own daughter started and now she’s beyond comfortable on campus having taken yoga and music classes there.

What I really like most about preschool at Grandview…

…is the class size. My child truly gets the personalized attention she wants…and deserves. There are less than 12 kids in her class! Very few Boca Raton private schools can boast that.

The Early Childhood program at Grandview emphasizes growth in social interaction and allows your child to progress through developmental milestones at an individual pace. Through core academics and classes in art, music, dance, physical education, and language (yep, my daughter is already taking Spanish!), the children experience a balance of play, discovery, manipulation, and participation to lay the foundation for lifelong learning.

This is key, especially as they work towards Kindergarten. Boca Raton preschool

What about early drop off and aftercare?

Grandview’s Early Childhood program offers flexible drop off and pick up times to accommodate family schedules. (Early Childhood students may be dropped off from 7:45 – 9:00 AM.  Dismissal is between 2:30 – 2:45 PM.) Extended Day, with a host of enrichment activities, is available for students until 5:30 PM. This is ideal for working parents.

As a parent with a child currently at the school, I encourage you to contact Grandview Admissions to take a tour to learn more about Early Childhood. It’s never too early if you have a child on the verge of preschool age (starting earliest at age 3)!

Hope to see you on campus!

Between the influx of people moving to our area and parents who simply don’t care for their current provider, it’s a hot topic! Add in the request for an onsite Smile Direct Club Boca Raton location and it becomes quite the narrow search. Enter the solution: SEDA Dental of South Florida.

The Best (and Most Affordable) Takeout Family Meals in Boca Raton

Besides a lot more quality time with my family and the slower pace of life, I would have to say the best thing to come out of this global pandemic has been easy (and affordable!) takeout family meals in Boca Raton. We typically order them once a week, especially if my mom joins us for dinner. They have been a lifesaver if we don’t feel like grocery shopping, cooking or cleaning the kitchen…which is often these days. Ugh.

Axe Throwing Near Boca Raton at Game of Axes

Overhand or tomahawk? Stark or Targaryen? Beer or wine? These are the terms that are commonplace at a sweet new venue dedicated to the art of axe throwing in Boca Raton. If you’re looking for a really fun group or family bonding activity to do this season, then this blog post is for you!

Since Modern Boca Dad and I are obsessed with Game of Thrones (like the rest of the world), I stumbled across Game of Axes in Boynton Beach, and now Boca Raton, on Instagram. I sent them a direct message with some questions and the owner got back to me personally about this fascinating sport that I knew very little about. He also invited me (and a group of 11 of my closest friends) for a friendly, Friday night axe-throwing competition complete with polite beverages and plenty of GOT-style photo opps. Spoiler alert: we had a BLAST! Continue reading Axe Throwing Near Boca Raton at Game of Axes
