Plato Academy Clearwater Pre K has nourished and challenged my daughter in equal measure. She is more curious and more disciplined, more aware of herself and others because of her time in their care. The teachers and staff are warm and inviting, creating a safe place for her to experiment and grow. The best thing I can say about Plato Academy, though: She is three and wakes up on Saturday morning disappointed that there’s no school. – Tom Kenning The Preschool program at Plato Academy has made a tremendous impact on my family’s life. The staff are caring, nurturing, and love every child as their own. My son’s teacher goes above and beyond to create a family environment, teaches life lessons as well as academics, and fosters his love of learning every day. As a parent, the comfort I feel everyday knowing that he is in the hands of the PAC preschool staff is more important than words can explain, and I could not be happier with our experience here. – Pam Pezone
