In my opinion T.R.A.C.E. Academy is the finest pre-school in Hawaii. The way they put the student first is unequalled. Near in mind that we visited many schools prior to choosing T.R.A.C.E. and we are so happy we chose them.
We just love the way the teachers are so involved with the students at all levels and make it fun to learn. There are constant activities and the communication with parents is constant and clear.  When choosing a school, we paid special attention to cleanliness and security. Several schools (2 of which are supposed to be the best in Hawaii), failed miserably, T.R.A.C.E. was the ONLY school that passed the test, and with flying colors. They constantly exceed our expectations with their curriculum and care of the students.  Just an amazing place for your children which is clean, professional, dedicated, studious, secure and fun.  There is no better place in Hawaii.
A special thank you to Ms. Rachelle, Ms. Bobbi, Ms. Jodine…3 great personalities that work so well together and love each and every kid they teach.


I was looking for a good preschool for my child and came across T.R.A.C.E. Academy Preschool. I liked how convenient the location was, as it was right down the street from my house. I initially visited Trace Academy to ask questions and was graciously greeted by Ms. Raechelle and Ms. Bobbie. They helped answer all of my questions and kept me in the loop in regard to her attendance there.

Milena was registered and put into the Honeybee class. I can't say enough how amazing Ms. Kasy & Ms. Des and the staff are there; she made both Milena and I feel so comfortable and welcomed into the T.R.A.C.E. Academy family. I appreciate the entire staff for being so helpful and accommodating. We are truly grateful!

T.R.A.C.E. ACADEMY is a wonderful preschool. My daughter has been attending since the age of 2. Unlike other preschools I feel that T.R.A.C.E. ACADEMY is academically focused. They are also one of few facilities I know of, that enroll at the age of 2. Most facilities enroll at the age of 3 or older. The staff is caring, nurturing and open, with a welcoming, friendly environment.  Their indoor facility is safe, secure, nice and clean with open space. Everyone and everything are visible while also being pleasant to the eye. The staff communicates with parents and there is a suggestion box if ever needed for an opportunity to make your concerns, if ever any at all.  They are tech savvy with the use of apps, where daily activities/memos/announcements are posted throughout the day. T.R.A.C.E. ACADEMY does a great job with keeping parents, children and staff all on the same page. I know what my child is learning as they have different themes of curriculum each month, including hands on activities and field trips throughout the year. Their festive holiday celebrations are awesome. The staff at T.R.A.C.E. ACADEMY does a fantastic job!


I found T.R.A.C.E Academy through Yelp and went by the awesome reviews they already had.  I started taking my oldest to T.R.A.C.E Academy back in 2018 when he was 2, almost 3.  Now (2020) my 2 year old also attends T.R.A.C.E as well.  It has been amazing and our kids have grown so much in so many ways.  We could not be happier with the outcome and absolutely love the staff!  Thank you Jo, Bobbie, and the staff at T.R.A.C.E Academy for being a blessing in our life!
