I have had the privilege of knowing Sharon Kelsall for a good number of years. Both of my girls attended the Pre-K and JK programs at Treasured Kids. Sharon is a very incredible teacher. Not only does she teach children academically, but she reinforces the moral conviction that my husband and I instill in our children. Not to mention a healthy dose of sociability and spirituality. She shows love and compassion when needed with great patience, all while maintaining a structured grip within the classroom. And my youngest daughter needed it! After a total of four years with Treasured Kids we have noticed our girls have a great foundation for their future. Thank you Sharon and the Kelsall family for all the love and support you have shown over the years.
"Our twins attended the full day Tuesday/Thursday preschool program at Treasured Kids at the young age of 2. They both thrived academically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Almost instantly I knew we had made the right decision. Sharon is compassionate and kind, yet firm when it matters most. The structured and loving environment is exemplary. Our children grew in leaps and bounds and are now confidently entering into Junior Kindergarten on schedule thanks to Treasured Kids. We will forever be grateful to Mrs. Kelsall for the impact she has had on our children's lives and by extension our own."
Treasured Kids Nursery School gave my daughter a huge head start on life! First and foremost she learned first hand the love of Jesus. Secondly, the academics she learned combined with the social skills developed in the small group environment prepared her extremely well for life in the public school system. Mrs Kelsall’s warm, inviting, caring and nurturing environment was exactly what she needed. My daughter developed a confident, yet caring rapport with both her friends and her teachers….and she also learned to speak French! This all began at Treasured Kids! We will be forever grateful for the fantastic program our daughter was able to be a part of! Thank you Sharon!!!
Sharon Kelsall provided not only an environment rich with learning opportunities but also a loving home away from home for our children. Treasured Kids School and Sharon built a foundation with our children that has supported them throughout their years in school.
Mrs. Kelsall has created a safe, caring and loving environment with Treasured Kids School. My daughter loved heading to school every Tuesday and Thursday and made close connections with Mrs. Kelsall as well as with the other children that attended. I especially enjoyed how Mrs. Kelsall integrated religion in an age appropriate way. The arts and crafts and school work that was completed each day was exciting for the kids. I always felt assured leaving my daughter with Mrs. Kelsall and I feel it was the perfect stepping stone before she entered elementary school this year. I look back at my daughter's year at Treasured Kids and I know it has had a positive impact on her personal development in the best possible way. Thank you Mrs. Kelsall!
Mrs. Kelsall and the Treaured Kids program hold some of the fondest memories of school for my son, Tyler. Even though he is now 15 years old, he still remembers "going to see Mrs. Kelsall." This is all the more remarkable because he was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder shortly before attending Treasured Kids. Mrs. Kelsall's welcoming and inclusive Christian environment became a safe and inviting place for Tyler and his team of therapists to teach, work, love and play. She always wanted to do whatever was best for Tyler and her ability to support him by genuinely and warmly inviting community partners and integrating their suggestions into his program speaks to her commitment to teach all children. I can't recommend this program strongly enough and we are so grateful for her love and support!
