Im looking for opinions and personal experiences from everyone (and their children) in regards to the Village. My little one just started preschool there last week and seems to love it!! Her teacher and the aides seem to be wonderful ladies and so good with children. Im looking for POSITIVE things only.(My daughter is an only child, so preschool is a new thing for us :)

I am not sure why you're looking for positive things only. As a parent, when I ask for people's opinions I want to hear it if they have something negative to say as well. You can decide whether you want to give any credence to those negative opinions or just ignore them.

That being said, my kids went to the Early Learning Village as well. I have no negative comments about the school or teachers. We all liked the Village, and were pleased with the educational support. Interestingly enough, the kids had more homework from the Village than they do in now in elementary school. The village focused intensely on reading and spelling, as it's intended to do. This is a good thing, considering the test scores for the kids on the East end are worse than the other side of town. We liked Mr. Owen a lot.

One thing I would have like to see differently is the ingress and egress at the school, it was horrible.

Callie, thank you. The reason I said positive, is that I honestly didnt want to listen to some of the people on this site start attacking teachers "just because". Im sure you have seen some of the things that can be said on this site. If there are negative things such as the way things are done or not done, PLEASE, I am all ears. I just didnt want to have any of the staff being talked aout rudely if there was no reason for it. Thanks again!!! Have a great day!

I see. Posts do quickly turn negative on here. I misunderstood. Well, I hope the Early Learning Village does what it's intended to. Our kids on the East End for whatever reason seem to need more help in certain areas.

As a teacher in the public school system, what you have to realize is that it's not the school's reputation you need to look at, but the individual teacher's reputation. How involved are they with your child and family? Do they collaborate with you or are they more of a dictator? Just something to think about.:)

my daughter went there for two years and loved it. The teachers she had were very helpfull when it came to her learning. Any kind of problems my daughter was having they worked with me to help her. I loved her teachers. The people in the office new her by name and got to know me by name. I really liked it there. I think it is a very good school.
well

Funny they told me my daughter had the best scores last year. I think they are wonderful with the kids. By the way maybe your daughter could teach you how to spell.

It is concerning that they don't offer a public preschool paid for with state funds. I wanted to put my son in ELV but was told he had to be evaluated for a learning disability or developmental delay.

Moi, I agree with you 100%. My child attends ELV and has a speech delay and a few others, but I find it so disheartening that not all 3 and 4 years olds can attend. I think the preschool prgram is wonderful and that ALL children and parents could benefit from
it. Not just those who aren't within the "normal" ranges of development

My daughter attended kindergarten and now 1st grade at ELV. LOVE IT! Cannot say enough good things about the staff. Mr. Owen is just an all-around good guy and Mr. Parker....how in the world that man learns all the students' names so quickly is truly beyond me. But I love how he greets each child by name in the morning.

My child has had Barmore and Thacker. Both have high expectations which is something I love about them both. My daughter needs those kind of drawn out boundaries and she receives it. But I have always felt like both teachers took the time to listen to any concerns I had about my child and they are both fair. Tough, but fair. Tha's what I want as a role model for my child.

ELV does stress literacy hard but given what I've seen from teaching in high schools, this is a good thing!

My only complaint about ELV comes not from the staff but from the parents who violate safety signs and speed during pickup/drop off. I was almost struck in the CROSSWALK because another mom was running late. Thankfully, I was walking back into the school so my child wasn't with me. But seriously, if it says DO NOT ENTER, then don't go in that way. Sorry if traffic is a little backed up but that doesn't justify ignoring street signs.
