Why Do Parents Love Lily Pond?  Take a Look!
Dominique B.
Rivervale, NJ

"I felt I should tell you again how happy and thankful I am that I found your school for my son, Kyle. The love and care he received from his teachers helped him to grow and learn to trust that school is a wonderful place. I was throughly impressed with the academic approach and philosophy at Lily Pond."

Cathe D.

"We’ve been to other preschools and nothing compares to what you provide. You’ve created a warm, caring family atmosphere, while providing a stimulating and challenging learning environment. I don’t know too many other 4 year olds who have already had geography, science and drama, not to mention Chinese and Art History!"

Allison V.
Hillsdale, NJ

"Our daughter has been a student at Lily Pond for over 2 years, and we are thrilled to have such a great school available to us.  With swimming instruction on-site, music classes and many other activities available, there is always something to excite and challenge the students, and broaden their horizons."
