Anybody have any experience with Touchstone pre-school/elementary, on the W side?

Starting to look at schools for the boy. If it helps set context, he'll probably be reading before he's three, but is still, in many ways, very much a two year-old, socially.

It seems to strike a good balance between structure, and letting kids be kids. We like the second language - our son started wanting to learn Spanish, on his own, when he was nine months old. He's also very physically active, and, the preschool has half an hour of organized, instructed, PE every day, in addition to recess time.

We're also looking at some Montessori's, but are a little concerned about whether or not it'd be a good fit for his personality.

They also set a priority on teacher pay, and seem to have a serious retention track-record.

The other bonus for us is that they have an associated grade-school, too, so it gives us a continuing private-school option if public is not to our liking, for some reason, or just isn't going to fit.

I know many families who have had children who went there (and to the grade school) If you have specific questions I can pass them along/get some answers. The kids I know who have gone there are very happy/loved it there. Teacher Diane and teacher PUSHPA are absolutely AMAZING (from what I've heard and from what I've observed)
