First English Lutheran Preschool & Kindergarten 4

I'm giving this school a good instead of great review because in our two years there, one year was great and one was not so great. The Kindergarten was amazing and my daughter loved it. The teachers had a lot of experience, were very thoughtful in creating their lessons, and there were tons of great hands on experiences (sewing, using tools) and the frogs... all the kids loved the frogs. But the prior year I had a similar experience to another reviewer: my daughter's teacher had no professional experience with preschoolers, and her attitude and approach were not in keeping with the philosophy of the school as a whole (which is nurturing, not critical, accepting rather than punitive, etc.) Most of the teachers and staff are wonderful though.

So happy we chose to leave- the administration appears friendly until you disagree with someone. They are cruel and will try to get you to pay for the entire year, even threatening to have their lawyer involved no matter how politely you try to navigate a poor fit for your child. Our first indication that it wasn't for us was at parents' night when our assigned child's preschool teacher stated that she has training in teaching older kids but that the reason she teaches at the preschool level is because when she wanted to go back to work after having kids, she was friends with the head of the preschool who hired her. Not exactly inspiring.

My son has been at FELP for three years. It has been a very positive experience. His teaches have all been warm, creative and energetic people. The principal, Jenny, is just the best. There is a lot of parent involvement too.

Both of my children attend this school and we have had positive experiences in both cases. I have a boy and a girl and are different in temperment and nature - they have both thrived at FELP. I have had one at a different preschool and although that was a good experience, I believe he is doing better in this one. I wish they would add a pre-first!

Our family did not have a positive experience with this preschool. We felt they did not adequately address disciplinary issues in our child's class and one of the teachers clearly had her "favorite" students. We have a quieter child and felt they were overlooked and did not receive their fair share of attention from the teachers.

This is an exceptional school, with exceptional teachers who favour learning in a playful and warm environment. The kindergarten teachers are iinspirational and I can't praised them highly enough. The head of the school and the admin staff are also great.

This is a very special school. Both my children attended for several years. In a world where children are barely allowed to explore play in favor of rigid & relentless academics (as young as age two!) this school is an island of sanity. FELP teaches much in the way of academic learning, but through play and socialization. Children are allowed to be children and to think; they are not turned into fact parrots as at many schools now. Children learn to respect one another and to be one integral part of a group. These skills are far more important than knowing ABCs and numbers. However, your child will learn all that as well at FELP. I would describe it as old fashioned in a good way. The teachers look for and see the best in each child. They respect & nurture each little person according to his or her needs.

I think Megan Morgan is a wonderful Assistant Teacher at First Engligh Lutheran Preschool. She is a hard worker and spends extra hours out of her own time to make her class room better. She is a wonderful person and teacher. Any parent who has her as their child's teacher is a lucky person. She puts the kids first and is very affectionate. If they have a bad day she has a way about her to make them smile with in no time! Keep doing a great job Ms. Megan.

This preschool focuses on learning through play. The teachers have been wonderful and caring. My daughter had a very positive experience there. Also, I always felt this was one of the more secure preschools in the area.
