"Where do I start....Unique Kids Preschool is the absolute BEST preschool! My daughter has been going there for 2 years and is very prepped to start kindergarten in the fall. Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo are so attentive, kind and engaging with the kids. My daughter always gets to do crafts that are very educational and specific to the theme being discussed, which is her most favorite thing to do. Preschoolers were given the option to join the Playball program which was wonderful. The preschool does lots of field trips and invite speakers such as police officers, firefighters and dental hygienists.
Only a handful of times do they need us parents to volunteer in the year and it is worth it to see my child thrive. She is so proud to be the special helper on those days. Unique Kids Preschool is so wonderful with all the positive things to say. My daughter has grown so much, learned the alphabet, numbers, colors and has started writing and reading, along with learning classroom etiquette that will be so valuable in kindergarten.
The preschool is always clean and teachers are conscious about food allergies. There is lots of parking for easy drop off and pick up and we always feel informed about what is coming up and what we need to do. We always feel welcome and my daughter views her teachers like family. It will be a difficult day to say goodbye but luckily my second daughter will be starting with them next year!
Definitely 5 star rating!"

"Our family has been attending Unique Kids Preschool for the last 3 years and we could not be more pleased
with the facility and the teachers here. Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo are incredibly passionate and dedicated to
providing a warm, loving and fun learning atmosphere. They encourage growth, independence and individuality
through a variety of age appropriate activities, crafts and experiences in a safe, clean environment. We also
appreciate the opportunity to volunteer in class and take part in our child's preschool experience.
We are so grateful to Mrs. Saba for providing such a positive first school experience for our kids. Thank you
for being an energetic, caring and amazing teacher!"

we were so blessed to have had you in our daughter's journey. You treated our kids with such kindness and love.

"Unique Kids Preschool has an open and spacious facility with wonderful teachers. Mrs. Saba greets the children
each morning with a hug and a kiss. This motherly nature has made my children's transition, from staying at home
with me 24/7 to going to preschool, an easy one. I have three children, and the older two have both attended this
preschool program - with my youngest looking forward to attending the three-year old program this fall.
I recommend Unique Kids Preschool without hesitation!"

"I was fortunate to have Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo teach my daughter this past year. She felt welcomed
and loved from the moment she walked through the doors of Unique Kids Preschool. She has grown into a confident
and outgoing little girl in the preschool environment. She asked daily if she got to go to preschool that
day and always came out of class smiling and excited to share what she had learned.
Mrs. Saba made each child feel special and connected with them from the heart. I'm so thankful for the special
concerts and events she organized for the parents, as well as the volunteer days when my daughter got to be the
special helper and I could see first hand how much she was blossoming. Those opportunities were just one of the
many ways Mrs. Saba allowed every child to shine.
I cannot wait to see what next year will bring! Thank you Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo for everything. You both truly
go above and beyond."

"Many parents worry about transitioning their children into preschool. Like most parents, we researched & toured
many facilities before we decided on Unique Kids Preschool. Initially, it was the clean & vibrant facility and friendly
staff that helped us with our decision. But ultimately it was the relationship our daughter developed with the facilitator,
Mrs Saba and the nurturing and fun atmosphere that reassured us we made the best decision.
Unique Kids Preschool quickly became our daughter's family "away from home". It was a relief when we dropped off our daughter
each morning to see her so excited to hug her teacher and see her friends. Mrs. Saba incorporates so many learning opportunities
throughout class time. A few of the things the children enjoy are daily crafts, calendar time, circle time, alphabet recognition
and sing-alongs. There's an emphasis on nutrition and healthy living. We also appreciate the importance that was placed on values
such as good manners & respectful behaviour.
Mrs Saba is very patient and always took time to answer any of our questions. She has devoted herself to providing a safe and
loving environment for the children. It's very obvious that the children love Mrs Saba as much as she loves them.
We will forever be grateful to Mrs Saba at Unique Kids Preschool for everything she has done to give our daughter the best
preschool experience. All of us will miss her warm greetings and smiling face."

"It has been a privilege to have our three children attend Unique Kids Preschool. In this warm,
inviting environment our children explored, learned and developed the necessary skills to head into
kindergarten confident and capable! For both of my older children, their kindergarten teacher remarked
that she could tell our children had attended a good preschool, because they are socially advanced and
have already developed motor skills and letter recognition. I know my youngest daughter is ready to head
into kindergarten as well - even though I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to Unique Kids!
Thank you, Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo for six outstanding years at Unique Kids!"

"When we brought our daughter to Unique Kids she was shy and timid. Over the year we watched her grow
and blossom into a social butterfly full of wonder and excitement.
Thank you to Mrs. Saba & Mrs. Fillo for all of the nurturing and dedication that they have provided to all
of the children at Unique Kids. We can say with confidence that our daughter is now well prepared and
excited for the world of Kindergarten all in part to her time at Unique Kids Preschool!"

"Mrs. Saba, How can I possibly put into words how much we love you and appreciate all you've done for
our son over the past 2 years. You have had such a tremendous influence on him and we loved watching him grow
under your care. You are an incredible teacher and we will miss you so much."

"My son started at Unique Kids Preschool in the 3ís class in September 2013 and he is finishing
the 4 year olds class in June 2015. He could not speak a word of English. The first week of school was
quite rough but the teachers managed the situation smoothly every time. He became completely comfortable
after his first week there. My son loves his teachers and his friends. The teachers are always so pleasant,
professional and create a really positive environment for the kids. Thank you Mrs. Saba for beautifully
organizing all the holiday performances and special events. It is unbelievable how you can manage them all so perfectly.
Unique Kids Preschool is spacious, clean, safe and filled with a positive energy all the time. The
in-class visitors and field trip programs offered by this preschool diversely enrich the kidsí education
in many aspects. The quality of care and education that the kids are receiving is amazing. We as parents
could not be happier.
Thank you for helping the kids transition smoothly into kindergarten. We are so grateful for your hard work."

"Teachers play such an important role in shaping and guiding especially teachers like you. Mrs. Saba,
you have made such a positive impact on our daughter and she will enter into kindergarten with confidence
because of your positive influence. Thank you so much for making a positive difference in the world with

"Unique Kids is exactly what it says: unique.
Since beginning in September 2014, my son has truly discovered the endless possibilities of the beauty of learning.
His sense of himself in the world has developed markedly due to the various ways he is encouraged to think about
himself and his fellow preschool friends. His is taught how respect and kindness must always shape relationships he has.
The boundless and passionate energy of Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo defines the enjoyment and excitement my son feels
about what he is learning: the songs, paintings, craft and activities he does nurture his creativity and feed his curiosity.
He always comes home with a beaming smile and a story to tell about what he has learnt Ė priceless. Thank you."

"Thank you Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo for a wonderful preschool year. You provided a supportive,
safe and caring environment for my son to grow. He was excited to learn from his loving, nurturing,
patient and dedicated teachers. The program was very well organized and varied. The children were
frequently given the opportunity to explore and learn through various student centered activities.
These activities included free play, structured crafts, songs and creative teacher led circle times.
The fun and informative field trips and guest speakers were an asset.
I would highly recommend Unique Kids Preschool to other friends and families. I look forward to
when my daughter is old enough to enroll her in this special preschool."

"What distinguishes Unique Kids Preschool from other preschools is the teacher. Mrs. Saba
is a teacher who approaches children from the heart. Her genuine kindness and love for every
student has helped nurture the caring spirit in our children and allowed them to build their
self-confidence. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo
for helping our children grow and develop essential cognitive, emotional and social skills over
the past few years."

"My daughter's first preschool experience was in the 4 year old class at Unique Kids. When
it began she was excited to go and looked forward to the different activities. She was a reserved
girl at the beginning and now her confidence has grown and we have seen tremendous growth in her.
Unique Kids provides the children with fun and functional activities/crafts that make learning
enjoyable. My daughter is always excited after attending class and wants to practice what she
learned. I would highly recommend Unique Kids Preschool to anyone who wants their child to learn,
grow and feel loved.
Unique Kids is not only a preschool, but it's like a family. I cannot thank Mrs. Saba
and Mrs. Fillo enough for all they have done for our daughter to prepare her for kindergarten.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done and all you do!! The positive
energy you radiate makes this world a better place. Mrs. Saba, we can't thank you enough because
it is every parents wish for their child to be involved in a wonderful program like yours."

"We (both sets of grandparents, my husband and I) are so grateful that our son attended
Unique Kids Preschool. This school has exceeded our high expectations. Thank you Mrs. Saba
and Mrs. Fillo for being exceptional teachers. You are both so loving, nurturing, humorous,
energetic and smart. I had the opportunity to volunteer regularly and I was able to see
the passion you have for what you do.
My son had a wonderful first preschool experience. He started out as a shy and quiet boy.
We watched him blossom in your classroom as a result of your love, encouragement, dedication,
patience and knowledge. He has learned so much during this school year and we are always so
impressed to see his artwork at the end of each class.
To see the joy that my son has from being in class is heart warming and exciting. We look forward
to his next year at Unique Kids Preschool. We plan to enroll our youngest daughter when she is
eligible. Kids deserve the best, and that is what they get at Unique Kids Preschool."

"My experience at Unique Kids over the past academic year has been a truly enjoyable one. Mrs. Saba
and Mrs. Fillo were very patient and loving to my daughter who was quite shy at the beginning of the year.
The quality of teaching was of a very high standard and allowed for quick retention by my daughter.
I would definitely recommend Unique Kids to all families with children of preschool age. I feel that
my daughter is now ready to enter the world of kindergarten and Grade school well equipped for success."

"If you are looking for a preschool for your child then you've found one
of the very best. Both of my children have attended preschool here and they
have loved it, and so have I. Set in the lower level of a church in the community
of Edgemont, Unique Kids is quite unassuming. At first glance you could miss it
but once you find it, you're kids will be glad you did.
The program that they offer is varied and fun with lots of thought put into
different additional activities not only for the kids but involving families too.
At the same time a great deal of the program teaches the kids the importance of
routine and structure through circle times, free play and many shared activities
including crafts and a communal snack time.
Unlike some preschools, Unique Kids actively encourages parental participation in
the preschool through its volunteer program. This involves helping out in class a
few times during the preschool year. This gave me the chance to see first-hand how
and, most importantly, what my children were learning. What has impressed me most
about Unique Kids is the staff. They are very caring, friendly and supportive. They
put a tremendous amount of effort into running the program and it really shows.
Thank you Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo for all that you do."

wonderful introduction to the world of school with you. Thanks for all the field
trips and special guests but most of all thanks for all your patience and love for

We will miss you."

"Itís difficult to express in words how the care and attention you have
given our two children over the last four years has not only positively impacted
their time at Unique Kids, but also fostered a love of inquiry and learning. My
children have grown so much with your guidance and your passion for children
radiates in your classroom and continues to resonate at home and beyond. Thank you
Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo for being amazing teachers and for giving our children
a positive experience at school."

"Preschool is about learning to socialize and becoming confident. It
requires a warm, encouraging environment. It sets the stage for a child's
journey from K-12. My children are lucky to have had this experience at
Unique Kids Preschool, in both the three and four year old classes. Mrs. Saba
and Mrs. Fillo provide personal, loving care for each child and make them
feel truly unique and special. The program involves enough structure to
introduce kids to school, while maintaining a fun and exciting feel.
I am thrilled to see both of my children leave preschool with a love of school
and the basic skills required to enter Kindergarten prepared to learn and socialize."

"My son has loved going to Unique Kids Preschool. Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo
are always very warm, loving, welcoming and enthusiastic when the children
arrive. I have found they work with each child individually to support and
challenge them to grow on many levels. As a result I am confident my son is
prepared for Kindergarten.
My son is always happy to attend, and eager to explore the different centers
set up for the day. He is always very proud of the work and crafts that he
creates and excited to share them with me. One of his favorite aspect of
school is the opportunity to be Mrs. Saba's special helper and performing
songs during special event or holiday performances. His self esteem and his
confidence has blossomed!
I highly recommend Unique Kids!!"

"Choosing a pre-school is a tough decision for any parent. We were in the
same boat two years ago when enrolled our daughter in Unique Kids
Pre-school. Two years later I am proud to say that we made an excellent
choice by picking this school.
Both Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo are loving and caring teachers that develop an
amazing rapport with the children, so much so that itís hard to keep the
kids from school, even when they are ill!
Kids are challenged at their age level where they are encouraged to try new
activities in a safe environment. Every day my daughter comes home excited
about what she has learned and restless to go back.
In addition to organized activities for special occasions like, Valentine's,
Easter, Halloween and Christmas, there are structured programs like Playball
where once a week an instructor comes and teaches the children basic skills
that can be applied to any sport in the future.
This excellent mix of fun and learning not only makes Unique Kids a great
place for the children, but also provides an ideal environment to prepare
them for kindergarten. Therefore, I would strongly recommend Unique Kids to

preschoolers weekly is amazing. We appreciate the amount of time and

"First of all, the space for Unique Kids pre-school is wonderful. It is big
and spacious, unlike some of the crammed and crowded little places we have
seen. There is a great variety of centers for the kids to play at, and the
activities are switched in and out so there is always something new.
Our daughter is in the 3 year old class this year. Mrs. Saba and Mrs. Fillo
are wonderful teachers for that age. They make the children feel safe and
welcome. Mrs. Saba tailors activities to children's abilities and
challenges. It is a great first beginning for little ones just starting
their journey through school.
The activities, songs, and programmes for special occasions go above and
beyond expectation: Halloween, Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter, Mothers
Day and Graduation. Unique Kids Preschool is a lovely, warm and inviting
place for children."
