Roanoke Reviews

Hear from our medical community on local shops they love and activites they enjoy!

“I can not say enough about Faith Christian. I love the way they reinforce biblical values in natural, yet intentional ways. I feel like our sons’ teachers truly know each child and their individual strengths and weaknesses. And they have lots of fun events and projects.”


Wife of a Radiologist

“The lacross program is very well organized, the coaches are very knowledgeable & have a great approach to teaching the sport, and my daughter’s skills and confidence have thrived while with Valley Select.”


Wife of a Psychiatrist

I highly recommend SPRES Preschool. The staff is attentive, caring, and encouraging. I appreciate the combination of activities that happen every day, including STEM, early literacy, process art, and play. It’s also an awesome option due to the flexible hours (options are available from 8am-5pm). They have extracurriculars (including Soccer Shots), and they have infant and toddler rooms, too. There’s really something for every child!”


Wife of a PM&R Specialist

“I ❤️ New To Me consignment shop in Grandin Village. Assortment of clothes and home goods. After moving and unpacking, I’ve taken so many of my things there to sell and made a little money. And I try hard not to spend that money in the store”


Pharm D.

“We have loved First Evangelical Presbyterian Preschool & Mother’s Day Out for our boys for pre-k and mother’s day out! It’s close to the hospital and the teachers are amazing.”
