    Comment:  We LOVE ps 705. The classroom was great and the teacher was incredibly thoughtful. The size was nice - 18 kids for 2 adults (a full time teacher and a full time student-teacher). The class was very diverse, and we value that the Principal is taking steps to make sure that the school continues to represent the community. They are very play focussed - the teacher has spoken to me about how yes, she probably could teach all the pre-k kids to read this year, but that 1) getting as much play time in is at least as valuable, and 2) they are instead focussing on the richness of language and sound so that when the kids do learn to read in Kingergarten they will have a broad and strong foundation. There is regular music, gym, dance, and art classes, and my daughter is crazy for this place! About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has afterschool options, Provides meals.
