I love this school for my young children. It gives them a start in learning about the Catholic faith and they provide a great atmosphere for my children in both the Toddler class and Pre-Kindergarten class. My kids have so much fun and come home excited and want to tell me all of what they learned... which is awesome! Plus, the staff is great. They are so kind and they teach great values which I love. Thanks OLB!

We sent 2 children to OLB and they were reading by K. It is the best Preschool in the city. OLB has been around for over 50 years and will thrive. My children loved OLB and I would recommend it to anyone.

Our child goes to OLB. The teacher is excellent and our child is thriving. However, the major criticism that I have with OLB is the level of secrecy in which decisions are made. Parents are called upon and do provide many hours of volunteer duty, but the Board will not communicate issues with the parents until they make a decision--and then they wonder why the parents get upset with them when they do not agree with the decision. I truly hope the decisions that they have made will allow the school to continue to function as a child care and kindergarten. However by discontinuing the elementary school many students will be deprived of the excellent foundation that OLB. Any parent who is planning to send their child to OLB should look hard at the long term plan for the school--and they should have a contigency plan ready.

OLB has been such a blessing to our children and our family. The principal and teachers are professional and caring. Our children have received an excellent education and a great love for learning. We highly recommend OLB from the pre-school level through the elementary grades.

My son attended OLB for 2 years in Preschool and Pre-K and was overly prepared for Kindergarten this year. We were very happy with everything and I would recommend it to anyone who has a small child and wants a head start.

Our child attends the Pre-K at OLB. The overall quality seems to be good. Our child loves the teacher and all of the activities. On the downside, the office operations are very unorganized. Figuring out how things work is very hard for parents who are new to the school. There was an orientation but it was geared to families who already have children in the system. The afternoon Pre-K hours are definitely not convenient for working moms and dads. We didn't discover that our child had not made it into the morning program until after we had paid the non-refundable deposit. At the time we paid our deposit, we had clearly signed up for the morning program, yet no one bothered to mention the program had already been filled. It was quite a shock to find out that important detail had been glossed over!
