I want to express my sincere appreciation to all the teachers, help stuff, and of course the principal Zhanna Buzov. My daughter (now 3.5 years) going to Metaphor School since June this year. We came... here from a home based day care in hopes to get more educational programs for our daughter. At first it may seem too busy and first couple days of school we ‘ve got a little overwhelmed with the amount of kids in school and slightly chaotic drop off and pick up times. But I realized, we came from a home based day care, where everything was quiet and in different way. As it turned out, only us , the parents got this impression. For my daughter there was no transition time. Seemed like she was going there for a long long time! She loved it from the first day!
I truly appreciate Zhanna’s and our teacher Irina’s attention to our child. It means a lot when teachers sincerely worry about your child’s feelings. My daughter loves her teacher Irina, she misses her when she is home and always talks just good about her.
The academic program is phenomenal. She leaned so much for the time she is going to Metaphor and improved in many areas of development. I can see how teachers takes their time in working with kids, preparing them for holiday concerts, how much effort they put into all of that.
I cant recommend highly enough this school. I’ve toured probably every single russian daycare in NOVA area and wast able to find better options for education-cost value. They have great discounts for paying in advance and for siblings. We planning to enroll my son (now 2 years old) starting April-May.

We absolutely love this place! Super loving, professional, educational, fun... the language and culture immersion is done in an effortless way, and will serve as a terrific building block for being tr...uly bilingual later in life. See More

We didn't have a good experience at all... Went to this school for 4 months and were trying to give it a chance. Left after my son had a serious trauma and the dentist said that he might not grow new ...teeth. It was over year and a half ago and we still have not received our deposit back.
Way more happy with our current school.
