The Crowe Family
We have had the best and most positive experience with everyone at ELC. Our son loves playing at school, which is awesome to me because he doesn't realize he is learning through playing. He just thinks he is playing with his friends and teachers. He used to be shy and was hesitant to leave my side when we were in social settings. Now he knows how to introduce himself and isn't scared to be in new social settings. This is something we were really excited to see change in him. I like that the teachers work with the parents and set goals for each child. Then when the goals are accomplished they set new ones. I think it is a great stepping stone between being home with parents and being in school full time.
The Armstrong Family
Our son loves the dramatic play centers and circle time. At the beginning of the year he had a very difficult time expressing his feelings. He has learned how to convey what he is feeling and why in a much more effective and positive way. I have watched him grow so much and I truly feel that is due in part to his preschool program. I like that there is learning through guided play. I appreciate the fact that he is given options and has the opportunity to make some of his own choices while learning. I fee like preschool is a very important tool to prepare a child for their learning career.
Preschool helps them to find and discover a love and passion for learning.
The Kettinger Family
My son enjoys the one-on-one teaching that is provided to him. This is the first year my son has attended any type of structured school. He thrives on the teaching method and he has learned a lot. He can count, his speech has improved, he listens better, and he is more confident socially.
ELC is great preschool because the teaching method they provide. They are thorough with every detail in the curriculum and are teaching in a great way.
The Herron Family
We love sending Rylee to ELC, we truly trust them with her care and they treat her so well!
She loves going to school and is sad when it isn’t a school day for her! She is now able to recite the alphabet and count to 10 along with counting objects! She started ELC unable to do either of those! I love the variety in the days and schedules so it fits more families. I also love the classroom environment and feel preschool is very important to teach children social and educational skills that are key to being successful in kindergarten!
The Reed Family
Our son loves getting to be with other kids. He also loves showing off what he is learning and telling me about his day. He is attempting to sound out words by looking at the letters and making their sounds. He isn't quite reading, but ELC is preparing him for success when he does start.
Preschool was essential for us, as our son is an only child and spent all of his time with adults. He needed the interaction with peers to prepare him for school and to receive the academic preparation in a setting that we couldn't provide at home. ELC has worked with us, been open and honest, and allowed us to make the best decisions possible for our child's future. They have always listened to our concerns and helped us find solutions.
The Cridlin Family
Our daughter loves playing with friends. We love the great loving relationships with staff.
Last year she barely recognized letters or numbers. This year she knows them all and is learning to sound out words.
They prepared my child for kindergarten and create such a great community feeling among their kids, staff and parents!
The Ciesialka Family
My daughter likes everything about being at school. There is always something new and exciting to keep the attention of a 5 year old. They make learning really fun. Within 3 days if her first year at ELC my daughter wrote her name. She is now on her 2nd year and is writing until 12 all on her own and recognizing words and is adding numbers on her own. I like that ELC is here in a public school envioronment to teach them about what being in school is all about.
I also love that it is affordable for the average family.
The Brindley Family
My child has a great bond with her teachers and friends. She loves everything but has told me that she really likes minds in motion days, story time and learning new letters and words each week. Stori's success story involves learning to be kind to others. She is an only child and before ELC, she struggled with sharing and focusing on others more then herself. She has many success stories but the one that stands out is when she came home telling me that her friend dropped her pizza and Stori said she told that teacher that her friend could have her piece because she wanted to be kind and didn't want her friend to be upset. That was a huge improvement for Stori and made me so proud and let me know that the ELC was exceeding my expectations, by not only teaching her what she needs to know for school, but also the right way to treat others.
I like everything about the ELC and believe preschool is important to help get a child ready and prepared for kindergarten and each grade beyond that. Instead of jumping right into required school, she is now prepared with the social skills and educational skills to help put her on a path of success in the years to come, and for small families like ours it's so important for her to know she has bigger support system then just her father and I. It has built trust, confidence and excitement in creating relationships with her teachers and classmates to help her through this educational journey. Preschool helps secure the foundation a child needs academically and socially excel in life.
The Beaman Family
Our son is excited to go to school every morning and misses it on the weekends. Cole has become much more outgowing this year. He has learned so much. I am so thrilled with my ELC experience. The staff is friendly, outgoing, and you can tell they love children and seeing them learn. The communication has been great. I ADORE the pictures and videos sent throughout the day. Cole is learning through play and experience.
