Teachers work hard everyday to give the best education possible for students. My kids really enjoy coming to school here. My only gripe is with the administration/owner. I agree that she is constantly yelling at teachers in front of the students. It seems to affect the teacher/school morale. She does not seem to be very friendly to students, parents or her staff.
Utterly terrible. My son (who was there for several years) could have done a better job in the office than the director did. She sat around all day and didn't take care of anything. I constantly had to wait on time sensitive documents. The only time you would ever see any work being done was if you were late on a payment. The owner was a mean, bully of a woman who yelled at staff IN FRONT OF THE CHILDREN. Then she would turn and smile sweetly at the kids. I witnessed this first hand from the hallway. The poor teachers were over worked and under paid. They did the best with what they had, and gave a fairly good education. They were treated like babysitters by administration, however. They were there every holiday and vacation. For the almost $200 a week, there were no extras. No extra curricular activities, any special projects were done via help from parents through a supply sign up sheet, barely any field trips (and those were upwards of $15 a piece). It was just unacceptable for the amount of money per week. Things were great at first, but went downhill FAST around 2007. So glad we are out of there!!!
My son has been attending JFH Academy in Prospect Heights and he loves it. I really recommend this school to all of the parents thinking about preschool/kindergarden. They are awesome! The techers know how to engage kids and have safe enviroment focused on learning through play. The kids ratio is small and they do a lot of fun things like field trips. The price is average but the service is outstanding. This year my son will be attending kindergarden. Once he's done will be sad to leave and hard to change to public school.

JFH has been a wonderful place to work for the past five years. The school offers a large facility, terrific classroom resources, a comprehensive curriculum and exciting professional development opportunities for the staff. I enjoy coming to work each day and providing a warm environment for my students and families.
