What Our Parents Say
I love that my son has become fluent in Spanish because of school! We have loved all the teachers that he has had.
We love everything about Whole Kids! The teachers are the most beloved. We also love the curriculum, environment, extracurriculars, Brightwheel and all the love our kiddos receive!
Whole Kids is a thoughtful organization that takes the time to listen and hear feedback. Luke loves his teachers and being challenged to learn more. His happiest days are when he learns something new, or a new skill. Luke loves playing outside on the playgrounds as well.
It is also nice to have the Brightwheel technology so that we can engage with our child on what they have learned each day. It’s a good way to stay connected to your toddler when you can look at pictures of what they did throughout the day.
We really love the warm, caring teachers, connected and engaged community, creative activities for the kids, open communication from administration - EVERYTHING! The heart of this school truly is the teachers! Our kids look forward to see them every day and not only like them, but LOVE them.
I love my daughter’s welcoming classroom and her friends. At Whole Kids, she has the ability to be herself, explore, try new things, feel supported during discovery and learning about the world around her.
The teachers and admin team are something we're continuously grateful for - and truly sets WKA apart. They all go above and beyond in making every student feel special/welcomed and really find a way to meet everyone's needs. Communication is also wonderful (it's always like you're 10 steps ahead of anticipating the next question) and the effort you've all taken during COVID to help keep the entire community safe has been a true blessing. The teachers have such a wonderful bond with the students and it really makes a difference in creating a sense of comfort when they go to school. Plus, all of the fun weekly themes/ hands-on activities keep the students excited and engaged all week long.
I love the incredible teachers, the great communication from the administration, the superb programming, the Balducci’s lunch program, and most of all, that I am giving my child the gift of a second language.
We appreciate the loving atmosphere, the faculty’s energy and enthusiasm, the thoughtful and effective curriculum, the facilities, how the school is run with professionalism and efficiency, and the excellent communication. Everything! The loving teachers and friendly students, the facilities, the food (Balducci’s for lunch and the healthy snacks), and generally having fun with learning. The teachers are so kind and loving. The program fosters kindness, the environment and being a good person.
What I love most about WKA is the quality of education my children are receiving. I see this in the facilities at the school (both indoors and outdoors), in the types of activities done in class, in the resources available for my children (the toys seem in good shape, the ability for my oldest to bake, as examples). I also perceive the quality of the school in the communication and professionalism of both the teachers and administrative staff. Having the school be Spanish immersion is also invaluable to my family.
Our family loves the "home" feel that WKA provides to our kids. They are always excited to go to school and share stories and ideas with their classmates and teachers. Our kids always come home ready to share their school projects and/or stories.
What struck both my husband and me when we toured the school some years ago was the great creativity on display in all of the classrooms. I remember Kara immediately sitting on the lap of one of the teachers and of course, we had the glowing recommendations of my cousin, her mother and her girls. What we didn't know was just how happy our kids would be, the warm relationships that our kids would form with their teachers, and the nurturing as well as learning environment they would be in.

Whole Kids Academy is an amazing school! It has been a very positive experience for me to be part of this community for almost five years. Our children learn and develop best in a warm, nurturing, and inclusive environment. The staff is great, with so much heart and caring mindset. This school has been working hard creating a truly diverse and inclusive work environment, where everyone can feel comfortable bringing their true selves to work. One of the main reasons why the school keeps growing and thriving every year!
Being a team member at WKA has been an amazing educational and growth experience. Whole Kids was my first experience working in early childhood and has made me fall in love with my career. WKA has definitely set the bar really high for my future endeavors in the teaching world, and prioritizes the feeling of teamwork and community, which is what I most enjoy about my position.
When I first joined the team at WKA, I know this was a place I wanted to stay at! There is a community here at WKA between the teachers, staff and families. We learn from each other and support one another. This academy blends compassion, diversity, and learning into lifetime experiences. At WKA learning begins with a big open heart. Every child feels loved and welcomed. Our educators are passionate and innovative. We inspire each other and because of that our children have the best learning experience. From the bottom of my heart, I am truly grateful to be here.
From my first day at WKA, I felt a great joy to be part of this beautiful family and community. I love being a teacher at WKA, I consider myself lucky to have a job I truly love, and enjoy. WKA has helped me grow professionally and become the teacher I am today, for which I am very grateful, it has been a pleasure seen the school grow all these years and be part of it! WKA is a school committed to the education of every child who attends it, and strives to provide the best standards a child needs in his or her overall growth. I am thrilled to continue to share many more years being a teacher at WKA and share my love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them
I love the community, here at WKA! The love and support has been beautiful. Getting the opportunity to grow tremendously as an educator over the last several years while also being able to witness my own two children progress through this program has been a true joy. My own kids are now mentors to the younger children here and I feel so proud! I also love the importance of the Social Emotional and learning the language of Spanish and the Hispanic culture.
WKA is a Spanish Immersion program that offers children and their families a safe, fun, and supportive environment where the different cultures and nationalities are acknowledged and celebrated. The kids explore and learn by having hands-on experiences while making friends, being loved and cared for by teachers, and being challenged in their curiosity and creativity. The teachers plan attractive lesson plans to amaze our kiddos, and make them create connections with the world, acquire another language, and develop lifelong skills. I feel proud, grateful, and happy to be part of this great community.
The team at Whole Kids Academy is filled with passionate, loving, creative and driven educators who aim to go above and beyond in all that they do. One of the things that truly sets apart our team is the abundance of warmth and love they have for the children and families in their classrooms, our school and greater community. Being apart of the WKA team is an incredibly rewarding and humbling experience and I feel so grateful to work alongside a team of inspiring educators.
At WKA, I am apart of a larger community of educators who not only work along side one another, but teach, learn and grow together each and every day. Our teachers see the value in every single child, family and team member at WKA and teach with such kindness and joy.
Being a teacher at WKA has provided me with such a unique and special opportunity to not only grow as an educator, but as a person along with my kids, which has been such a rewarding experience
Being a Whole Kids teacher means belonging to a beautiful community where I can share my professional knowledge, love and passion for children while celebrating my language and my culture
