Challenger Preschool

Does anyone have any experience with Challenger preschool?  I know it is only in California, Idaho, Nevada, Texas and Utah.  We are considering putting our 3 year old dd in there next summer and the 2013-2014 school year.  I'm just curious for any feedback.  TIA

Wow I just looked at their website and imo something like that puts way too much pressure on young children. Let them be young!

I would check out the individual school. I don't anything about that company. But I know large corporate day cares like that really vary depending on local management.

I thought the same thing too, till we visited one of the schools.  My dd thrives in an environment like this.  I know it isn't for everyone and we may not go with Challenger, but it is a top choice for us at this point.

It's just a preschool, but they are more academically driven than others.  They use the phonics method with the kids so children are reading by 4.  They also serve children up to the 8th grade, but if we went with Challenger we would do two years of preschool and maybe kindergarten.
