The Day Prep Private School Difference 

“This is how teaching should be.” –Ms. Duce, Soledad, Day Prep Teacher

“Mamma, at Day Prep I never feel left out, my feelings aren’t hurt and I have not cried once when you pick me up because someone was mean to me.” –Primary grades student

“We are so happy with our child’s teachers. Very grateful for everything!!” –Middle school parent

“Day Prep School is the best!”

“Hi! Thanks for checking in with us! My kids are SO happy with Day Prep. My daughter is really coming alive. I am grateful for Miss Keefer and the social/emotional component of Day Prep. I also really enjoyed the Power Parenting session and follow-up resources. I’m also looking forward to some Level Up extracurricular options for the kids! Can’t wait! Thank you for everything!”

“Happy Child – Happy Heart.”

“Sienna loves Day Prep. She only has positive things to say about her teachers, the environment, and the work she completes.”

Thanks so much! We look forward to a wonderful learning environment in the year ahead.” — High school student parent at Mission Bay

“We are so thankful for fun, engaging teachers! Mr. Montalvo is full of life and energy. Both of our girls are reading up a storm, excited to get to school in the morning, and seem encouraged and inspired. Thank you, Mrs. Day and team. ❤️💕❤️💕”

“My son LOVES his teacher and every day is SO excited to get up and go to school! My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our Day Prep decision!”

“The excitement I witness in my children when their teacher, Miss Moulton, arrives each morning truly puts a smile on my face and warms my heart. They run over to start class immediately and eagerly assist in carrying the picnic blanket out to the backyard for their morning meeting.”  –Family with private in-home education

“I’m grateful for Day Prep.”

“For my child to learn and develop a love for learning”

All I can say is that after two years, Day Prep Private School has changed my son’s life and my family’s for the better. My son is being loved in a way that no other teachers have loved him. He finally feels confident and is striving to be the person he is—in his little genius self. The team goes way above and beyond for us all. I am truly grateful to have these people in our lives. Mrs. Day and her outstanding team, thank You for teaching us with your hearts. We Love You XXOO.”

“Thankful!!!!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!!!”

“Great work! We’ve had an excellent experience. Overall, our child is exceptionally happy. The teachers are great and very adaptable to the kids’ needs.”

“I am grateful that my kids are LOVING school. They are inspired and excited and open! Thank you.”

“Our 7th grader has had an incredible start. It was like we started to see her old energy and light re-emerge. Looking forward to learning more about enrichment classes so we can give her more daily Day Prep!”

Notes from informational meeting attendees during COVID months:

“I am so incredibly impressed with Cara’s vision for children’s education. Her programs are organized and well-thought-out and are ideal for both younger and older children looking for more personalized in-person education, which is even more important during these difficult and unknown times. I have amazing respect and admiration for the work that she has done to build this unique and special niche in K-12 education.”  ~Lauren Weiss, Ph.D., M.Ed., mother of 2 enrolled children, ages 10 and 12

“The shadows of virtual learning and further school closures were looming over us. At the very least, I wanted someone to take ‘homeschooling’ off my plate. However, what we found is a program, an educational leader, and a community that would not only preserve the magic of education in uncertain times, but a curriculum and education style that is revolutionary. One that I’ve been itching for, always knowing in my heart, ‘it could be done so much better.’ Thanks to Cara and Day Prep Private School, I’m now going into Fall 2020 with excitement and pure confidence that we have preserved the magic and stability of school using pod learning in these unpredictable times. I suspect we will never go back to the status quo.” ~Parents of 2

“We learned so much about the concept of school and how children learn in general. Wow. Just didn’t know what we didn’t know.”
~Parents of 2

“Our kids do not want to do online learning. We are done with that. Day Prep provides a way for our children to not only stay on track but get ahead and in meaningful ways, not busy work, worksheets, and the c%$# they were doing. My kids are going to be publishing books, doing math at their level, and actually getting time to read in school. The social/emotional curriculum is so strong and that really stood out. Day Prep has been there for us for 4 years, and now it will be our school home. Grateful.”
~Family with 3 children

“I like that there are several options and there is flexibility built-in as things change with COVID. Day Prep is responding to the emotions and the academics. My girls will love the fact that science and social studies are project-based, not just textbooks and worksheets. They are beyond excited. I love it.”
~Mother of 2

“This meeting affirmed much of what I knew to be true but couldn’t put into words. I have a clear path forward now, feeling much better if you can believe that. We have enjoyed the newfound time with our kids and the Level Up program to add on to the school pods is perfect for us.”
~Father of 3

Thank you, parents!!
