“The teachers are what make JEA Preschool Savannah so magical. They go the extra mile because they genuinely care about and love each child, making them feel comfortable and safe each day. Our two children feel secure in their classrooms, which makes them more willing to be independent and enthusiastic learners. They are excited to go to school every day, and so much of that excitement is fostered by our teachers.” 

- Allison and Mark Konter
