I was privileged to have two of my children attend Arise ‘n’ ShineTM play school for their preschool year. I liked getting regular updates on their progress, which gave me a clear picture of what they were learning and how they were improving. The teachers were friendly, helpful, and communicative. My children were always sad when it wasn’t a school day because they loved their play school teachers and wanted to spend time with them.

The children have been given ample opportunities to explore all the areas of development through their curriculum which brings out the best. The atmosphere of the school has always been warm, welcoming, encouraging and child-friendly. “Show ‘n’ tell” is one of the amazing and unique activities conducted every month that foster the oral language development in children by building vocabulary as well as self-expression in a non-competitive way which makes learning fun and stress-free. The teachers, supporting staff and management have always been approachable and open to feedback. The energy and positivity of the teachers have been highly commendable. Each child has been known, encouraged, self-motivated and self-disciplined.
My child had a great experience in this play school. The children learn and pickup proper etiquette at Arise ‘n’ ShineTM. They work for the overall development of the child. I was constantly amazed by their genuine interest and care they give to each child in play school and the positive feedback given to the parents on a daily basis. I always felt confident that my child was in a safe and secure environment. I have never been disappointed. I am glad that my child has been a part of the Arise ‘n’ ShineTM play school family. Keep up the good work and I truly appreciate it!

Mrs. Chihtra and her staff were kind to all and treated others the way they wanted to be treated. They were compassionate and always helped those with different kind of needs.
Mrs. Chithra evaluated and valued the uniqueness of each child and developed a customised, high standard learning curriculum and created a personalised learning experience in a nurturing environment.
My daughter has a positive self-esteem now and as Mrs. Chithra worked in cooperation with children, it had a positive effect for lifelong learning. Even now my daughter, who is in 2nd standard, feels so confident that she says she has learnt most of her current curriculum in kindergarten.

For Sridula, attending Arise ‘n’ ShineTM during her preschool years has been the most memorable and academically rewarding period. Now Sridula, who just completed her 1st grade, has turned out to be a voracious reader and writer. Reading and writing in our opinion is very important for enhanced cognitive development especially for comprehension and articulation. This habit should be attributed to the unbridled efforts of Mrs. Chithra who was able to instill fundamental values and principles from both Indian as well as American educational systems at an early age. Mrs. Chithra with her combined experience encouraged Sridula to be an independent reader and writer, a quality that she can cherish for years to come. We commend Arise ‘n’ ShineTM for their commitment and hope that many more children will benefit from their experiences.

We enrolled our daughter Naomi at Arise ‘n’ ShineTM pre-school center in Ann Arbor for two years. Before she started her preschool – as every parent does, we researched several pre-schools and day care centers around Ann Arbor. We chose Arise ‘n’ ShineTM specifically for their curriculum and for their fair teacher to student ratio. The curriculum was a pleasant surprise as no other pre-school center offered a detailed program for the whole academic year.
The two years Naomi spent at Arise ‘n’ ShineTM allowed her to smoothly transition to elementary school and she always stood ahead of her peers in the first grade. She was also sent to an advanced class due to her strong foundation in learning.
We would like to thank each and every staff member and the management of Arise ‘n’ ShineTM for their dedicated effort in nurturing every child, building a strong foundation in their learning and social skills. Shalaka and I wish Arise ‘n’ ShineTM the best and we thank them once again for giving a wonderful start to Naomi’s school life.
