From the minute my husband and I walked into ELAP, we knew it was the perfect preschool for our children, our son, age 5, and our daughter, age 4. My husband and I are both elementary school teachers, grade 6 and grade 3 respectively, so we highly value education and independence. Above all, we want our children to feel loved and have fun! Ms. Shannon was the first person we met and gave us a tour of the facility. She was accommodating, friendly, and confident. Her classroom was run the same way. My daughter came into ELAP very shy and timid. She has made tremendous growth in her social skills and absolutely loves ELAP! She can't wait for Pre-K in the fall. My son graduated from Pre-K this past June and he is more than ready for kindergarten this fall. He looked forward to school each day. The extended day program is wonderful and the summer camp program is a great opportunity for the kids to get acquainted with the school and make new friends prior to entering the school and/or enjoying weekly theme activities in the summer with their new friends. We highly recommend ELAP to any family that wants love, education, and fun for their children during these most creative and developmental years! I would be the first one to hit the "Like" button for every single teacher at ELAP! Ms. Samantha runs her school like a family and not a business. Her kindness is insurmountable and we love ELAP! -S.B.
I can't imagine a more positive learning environment for my 3 year-old daughter. She runs into her classroom every morning with a smile, and leaves in the afternoon excited about a new library book, a new song learned from Mr. Wayne, or a wonderfully creative craft she designed. She has thrived in the environment created by her teachers at ELAP. She has made so many new friends. My daughter has a truly positive attitude about school and learning, and I credit this to the great introduction provided at ELAP. I will not hesitate to enroll my son there as well! -M.F.
I have two children who have both attended ELAP. I found the staff to be extremely warm and nurturing as well as knowledgeable. Our family felt welcome and included in our children's education and care. Thanks to ELAP, my boys developed wonderful social skills and were well prepared academically for kindergarten. -K.G.
