Smart Start Preschool

Our Alumni

At Smart Start Preschool™, we consider ourselves a family. 

When a family enters our doors, we are vested. We want to dig in and become part of that fold. That means that even when their child graduates from our one of our centers, we still feel like their child is still a part of our family.

These are our some of our alumni. We love knowing what’s happening with our grads, even 20 years later. So if you’re a grad or have a child who is, share their info. We want to stay connected!

Attended in 2010
Our family’s favorite things about Smart Start were the loving, amazing teachers they had, the school environment and surroundings, and all of the animals. Both of our girls enjoyed the pony riding and being able to feed the animals, definitely things they wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do at your average preschool and kindergarten. It was an amazing place for them to start their education and we feel so blessed to have been a part of the Smart Start family. -Candace McCarty

Kendra

Attended in 2006

Something that I will always cherish about Smart Start is they way you allowed Kendra to be herself, taking her time to join in and allowing her to explore. The environment was so nurturing and fun and a place I always felt comfortable! Thank you!!

Avalon

Attended in 2006
After two failed attempts at getting Avalon to accept other preschools, the third try was Smart Start. That morning she reached her arms out to Miss Diana and never looked back. Her favorite earliest memories were playing with shaving cream in the trays, the art projects and the front lawn halloween costume parades. Her love of learning started with Miss Diana and now she’s a first year Cal Poly business major.

At Age 7 One of my favorite memories of SS was their Christmas/holiday program. The girls were so cute up there on stage singing and dancing. The teachers put so much time and effort into a great show and it always turned out great! We love and miss SS so much!
