A LITTLE ABOUT US…
WHAT OUR PARENTS SAY ABOUT US
YEARS ENROLLED: 3
"When we were looking for a preschool for our first son we were unsure what to look for. After visiting several different preschools we immediately knew FELP was the one for our family. All our concerns were eased after our first visit because of how intentional their curriculum is and their high standards of teaching the children social, emotional and academic lessons. FELP was a great fit for our first son and he has thrived in Kindergarten because of how well prepared he was by the caring and equipped teachers. And now as our second son is enrolled in FELP we are again reminded of what a wonderful preschool this is. We love FELP and their staff so much."

I have been a parent at First English preschool for fourteen consecutive years, sending all 7 of my children here. That in itself should say a lot about this program! When I was deciding on a preschool for my first child, I found many preschools were really just glorified day care. Except for First English. I noticed that they were accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and it made all the difference. It was the perfect combination of a traditional school environment and a montessori school environment all in one. It was a little more in monthly tuition but well worth it! Even with a preschool opening at our elementary school, we made the decision to stay at First English because it was still a higher scope program than anywhere else. Fast forward to today...my baby is now in pre-K and I'm sad this my last year at such a quality establishment. First English is an amazing school for your young children. It has always been a wonderful place where children can play to learn!

Its hard to say enough good things about FELPS. Over the past 7 years we have had one of our children enrolled at the school, so FELPS has been quite a constant in our lives. The teachers are all wonderfully warm and responsive to the children as well as the parents. They are also very patient, kind, and loving. The school really provides an ideal setting for the introduction of formal education. There is a great balance of learning and fun. The curriculum at each level is creative, age appropriate, covers a wide range of topics and is never unexciting. Parents get many opportunities to be involved whether it be a sing-along, mom/dad night, volunteering, and even holiday programs. It is a sad year for us as our youngest of 3 is in his final year at FELPS. We will miss this community that we have grown to cherish over our time here. It has been a beautiful experience watching our children blossom in the care of this school. There is no where else we could imagine having our children go, and feel so blessed for such a great start for our boys. There are a lot of difficult decisions in raising children, however, choosing a preschool doesn't have to be one ,as FELPS is a clear choice , we would recommend this school to anyone and everyone.
We like to have activities and events throughout the year as a way to connect with families and to extend relationships beyond the classrooms. You can keep up to date with all our activities by regularly checking our website here.
