Now in our 44th year of operation, we could share hundreds of wonderful stories from three generations of Alta Vista parents. Here are some comments from current and recent nursery school parents and children:

For all of you who gave so much;
I can never thank you for what you have all done to shape my wonderful son.  He came to you at 18 months, shy, uncertain after his long journey to Canada. Today he is confident, kind, generous and filled with enthusiasm. Your hands and hearts helped him get there.

Thank you for directing such a wonderful nursery school, which is very important for our community.  All the best!

We heard about St. Thomas the Apostle Nursery School from several other parents in the neighbourhood. Everyone said that it is well-run and well-loved. Now we know first-hand how right they are. We’re so fortunate to have such a treasure in our community.

My daughter is going to be three in the spring. She absolutely loves nursery school, her teacher and all her friends in the yellow group. It is amazing how quickly she’s dressed and ready to go on school days.

Wow Dana! Thank you so much for the very detailed observation report of Duncan at school. He is very lucky to have such a fantastic first teacher. We really appreciate all that you do. Thank you!

I enrolled my 3-year old daughter at St. Thomas last month. I chose St. Thomas because it is the same nursery school that I went to 33 years ago. I still have fond memories of being there. Now, my own daughter loves being there. Her teacher is great and the staff all do a wonderful job.
