Davis-Baker Preschool has been a true gift to our family. I went to the preschool as a child, and I have had two children in the program. My sons have learned so much. The teachers truly care about the kids and spend extra time making sure each child feels special. Each subject the kids learn about is relevant and interesting! We love Davis-Baker Preschool!
