The Gobles program received the highest possible marks for such elements as the learning environment, the quality of staff, parent and family services, and program management. The audit also found that the program is doing a very high quality job preparing students to enter kindergarten.
According to the reviewer, the Gobles program is especially powerful for the ways it integrates the family of students into the program with the children, so that the entire family is preparing that child for kindergarten together. Gobles' Great Start Readiness Program includes many special programs in the evening, and a great deal of school to home communication, so that all the adults in the life of each student are on the same page when it comes to success in school.
Parents reported on surveys that they have seen their children gain confidence and independence, plus also growth in etiquette and life skills. One parent said the difference in her daughter is due to the quality of the teachers.
“Mrs. Lower and Ms. Kahl are amazing teachers and care so much for the teachers,” she reported. “My child is in a safe and productive environment that better prepares her for the next years in school.”
