The administration staff at this school isn't family oriented at all. They make my child and I feel so targeted and unwelcome. In the morning I drop my child off a little late due to my night shift work schedule. I went to administration and explained my situation to them and they weren't very understanding. Instead the director told me if I can't get my child there on time I should keep her home. They also charge me aftercare fee for picking up my child 15 mins after 3pm. I explain to the staff that I pick my child up at that time due to the fact that the school has no parking and whenever I pick my child up early I have to double park (everyone's picking up there child at the same time) and I often get a parking ticket. Instead of being understanding, the school policy was thrown in my face and I was charge the fee. Other than the administration staff, the school is ok. My child teachers are ok (can't prove she learn anything new yet, but she's only been there for 3 weeks), so I'll wait and see.
I highly recommend Egenolf, my daughter attended last year. The staff is great, family oriented, dedicated to the children. The only bad thing is, It should be a 2 year pre-school!
My sisters and myself all attended Egenolf as children and had wonderful experiences. My son recently finished up at Egenolf this past year and is well above his classmates in his current pre-k class. The staff is absolutely wonderful as well as the director. Definitely a family oriented feeling.
My son has now attended a public run by the Elizabeth Board of Ed. Egenolf, being independently run, has turned out to be an amazing school in comparison. He still remembers and wants to visit his teachers from Egenolf. The entire staff pays excellent amount of attention to all the children and they have excellent communication about how the child is doing. The only thing he has that I can praise at his new school is his excellent teacher and aides.
It is really a fabulous school, ever since my daughter began last summer, we have been happy as much because the attention of the teachers as of the social workers. They are people who always work together with the parents, such as my mother. Thanks, Mr. Hugo.
I absolutely trust and love this school. They teach your children good family values while paying attention to their individual needs. The family workers help you the parent while being a liason to the school. While my two children were attending their summer program I was diagnosed with two serious medical ailments. They watched my children and related to me changes in their behavior. By doing that I was able to reasure them that I was okay. On the first day of school in the fall my younger son was bussed to the wrong school. The director herself picked him up but she also told me who to call and what to say to rectify the problem at once. Egenolf has been a blessing from God for me and my family. I can not say anthing but good things about this school.
Egenolf provides an excellent environment for early childhood development. All four of my children attended Egenolf and were socially well-adjusted by the time they entered grade school. The teachers and staff are very nice people, and their school year and summer programs are fun and educational.
Egenolf is a fabulous school!!! I am 100% satisfied with their performance. I couldnt ask for a better school for my daughter to begin her journey to success!! I love this school!!
