Jessica has been so great to our son. He loves going to see her and is loved by not only her but her whole family. She has worked to teach him sign language to help him communicate and makes sure the he feels safe and cared for.  As a parent, I love him there knowing he is well taken care of. This has been a great first experience for us and I am forever grateful to Jessica for all of her hard work.

I adore Jessica. My son has absolutely thrived and blossomed while learning from her in so many ways- both educationally and emotionally. She has taken so much extra time to spend with him and all summer he asked when we were going to se "Miss Jessica" again. Jessica has taken extra time to help me with my child in ways I am so thankful for- from emotional regulation to his speech and techniques to use at home. I am so impressed with her approach to teaching and using mindfulness. It is something I am learning about and practicing daily as an adult. I wish I could have learned these skills as a child. I have but so Buch trust with her not only to help my child grow academically but socially and emotionally as well. I feel pure love and care from her the it is so dear to me. We love Hidden Valley School!

Jessica is an amazing teacher. She taught my daughter when living on the EAs Coast. My daughter learned so much, was so loved and is now thriving Senior in high school with numerous college acceptances. Jessica is smart, kind, funny and extremely patient. Jessica cares about her work and any child who is lucky enough to be taught by her will be impacted in so many wonderful ways.

1.Kids must feel like they belong. (family, club, group, team, school)

2. Kids must be allowed to express good and bad emotions. 

3. Develop play skills of Give and Take. 

4. Develop Problem Solving skills. Everyone deserves a re-do. Failure is growth.

5. Children accept diversity by having exposure to diversity through literature, art and real-life.



What are the benefits of home-based preschool?

They feel most comfortable in a home-setting. Familiarity. They are more likely to express their feelings in home setting, as they should when they are developing their problem solving brain.  When kids get older they understand that as humans we have various rules/ decorum for home, school, church, or work.

Outside time happens everyday! Rain or shine. Rain and snow boots are a must (Rain suit provided). Kids learn how to play outside without all the playground equipment. They explore the front (shovels and mud kitchen) and the back yard ( stairs, rocks, ladders, and chickens.)

Kids learn appropriate front yard play and safety play. Real life experiences. This is not a forest school where kids only learn to explore at school. They learn to explore in their own back yard.
