What Are the VSH Parents Saying?

"Amazing place. We enrolled our child here through the West Orange Public School District's program in the Fall of 2023. Our child is excited every morning when we leave for Valley Settlement House and at the end of the day when we are picking him up he is usually so immersed in what he is doing he does not realize it is time to go home. Teachers and staff are friendly and supportive. Best decision we made and we hope that the West Orange Public School District continues to support local preschool programs like the one at Valley Settlement House".
