This was not our first choice preschool, so we have been surprised with how much we like SPELC. The main teachers are great and their assistants are very caring. My children are always learning beneficial skills and knowledge and it's amazing how much parent involvement there is during activities. The principal is new and not as talkative as her predecessor. She seems nice but since I don't know her I only gave her 3 stars.

Both my daughters attend this school and we love it. I have to agree with a previous comment that most of the teachers have Filipino accents. I too was a little put off by this, even though I myself am Filipino (but no accent). :P However, both daughters speak well and my 2 year old is already speaking in complete sentences. So the Filipino accents of their teachers make absolutely no difference. :) My older daughter (5) already knows how to spell/read several sight words as well. All the staff know both my daughters by name...even though their classrooms are on opposite sides of the school. It makes the school environment feel so inviting. The lunch provided is also really good. It's prepared in their cafeteria by their cook. Occasionally lunch is really simple (i.e. vienna sausages), but I've been lucky to try the beef stew and chicken mushroom when I ate lunch with the class after chaperoning a field trip. And as a previous comment stated, yes they do get ice pops once in a while as a treat when it's hot. But it is never their main snack! Absolutely love this school! I wish they went all the way up to 6th grade or higher!

My daughter goes here and we absolutely love this school! We were a little apprehensive about it when we met the teachers and the majority of them have accents. We thought she would pick up on their accents also! But she hasn't and the amount of love and attention she receives from all of the instructors is amazing. The communication from the teachers to the parents is great and the academics are top notch. My daughter knows much more body parts, alphabets, songs, etc than any other 2 year old I know. Her socialization abilities and cooperation with other children are very advanced for her age as well. I highly recommend St. Philomena's!

I like this school but they need to have an afternoon program. The teachers are friendly and the kids seem happy.
