I absolutely love Golden Gate Preschool. My little boy has been coming here since he was two years old and now he is almost five! The director Michelle is always warm, caring, and attentive to the needs of all the children and their parents. My little boy is always cared for, happy, and secure when he is in their care. His teachers geniuinely care for him and his happiness and well being. Whenever I pick him up he is always smiling and joyful, which means he is having a good time.
