Both of my children attended Iris Tompkins’ preschool from the age of three until kindergarten. I had a great deal of trepidation over sending my first child off to preschool, but after meeting Iris and from his very first day I could not have felt more at ease. The only problem I had with my son at preschool at first were the tears when I came to pick him up. He hated to leave! When it was time to send my daughter four years later, there was never any question where she would go. We all loved Iris and do to this day.
The loving, learning and sharing environment that Iris created was an extension of home. There was no one else I trusted more with my children’s minds, hearts and safety. She gave them a wonderful experience and fully prepared them for kindergarten both intellectually and socially. I credit Iris for helping me raise such wonderful children in those early and impressionable years. She made an impression on all of our hearts! My son is now an Honor student going into his senior year in high school and my daughter an Honor student at the middle school. To this day I owe a debt to Iris for the stellar environment she created for my children. She treats children and parents with love and respect and I am proud to have chosen her to be the first teacher my children ever experienced. I am equally proud, after all these years, to still call her our friend.
I would highly recommend Iris Tompkins for any position dealing with children. She is simply the best and I wish I could find more words to describe the magical experience my children enjoyed in her care.
