    I could not be any more happy to be able to send my daughter to daycare at Faith Lutheran. My daughter is only 2 years old and can count up to 25 she knows her colors and loves going to "school" everyday. I recommend Faith Lutheran to any mommy and daddy that wants and needs to go to work and wants that EXTRA peace of mind that your child is not only being taken care of but being taught at the same time.

    I have 2 children currently attending and 1 child who graduated last year. She made an easy transition into high school in fact she repeated what she learned at Faith her freshman year and was way ahead of the other kids. My current 2 are getting a great education in a loving and academic environment with teachers who go the extra mile to help the children excel. The kindergarten teacher makes the transition into kindergarten extemely easy and she works very close with the parents to make sure all the childrens individual needs are met. They offer before and after school care. Our extended day care teacher was EDC teacher of the year for 2007. What an awesome education!

    This school is the best! I'd encourage parents to bring their child into this loving school environment rather today then tomorrow. The Kindergarten teacher is the next best thing to their own Grandmother! (that is if the grandmother is suuuper loving and caring and strict if needed to be and just simply amazing in every way!) The daycare in this school is outstanding as well the whole team is just one of a kind and I could not see my son in better care away from me!

    I currently have two sons attending preschool at Faith Lutheran. The oldest has attended for two years now. Before he stared he was extremely shy and introverted. With the guidence of teachers and staff at Faith Lutheran he has blossomed into a very confident and friendly child. In additional to the social developement my children have received the academic skills taught even at the preschool level are amazing! It is well worth sending your children to this private school then relying on the public schools in the area!

    My son joined Faith this year as a Kindergarten student. He's done excpetionally well. All students in the K Class will be reading before the end of the year. My son is very proud that he has read 9 books. For the most part the class and curriculm are very structured but you never know when the urge will come over the class or teacher to learn/do something current event related. The school is very strict on health and safety issues.
