We switched to Flanagan’s a few weeks ago from another daycare that was failing us and we are in love! Flanagan’s has become an extension of our home and family and I am excited that my son gets to spend the day there. They already have him on a napping and feeding schedule that works for him and the personalized attention and care he receives from the teachers is so important to us. His teacher Alexis cares about the details of his day the same way I do- and it means so much to me!
Also so important to me is I’m able to be real and honest about any concerns I have and the staff at Flanagan’s listen and take the time to talk to me. They make suggestions and work with us as parents to achieve what is best for our son- and this is the type of relationship I’ve always wanted with our son’s caregivers.
The love this staff has for each and every child, is so phenomenal. They are always there to lend a hand and an ear. Our daughter is SO excited to go to school each and every day and never wants to leave at the end of the day. Her transition was seamless, from in-home care to full day care at Flanagan’s, at just 24 months. From singing songs that Mr. David (music class) taught them to being excited just to be with each other, the friendships these little ones are forming are going to be forever.
Flanagan’s Plymouth Meeting has been excellent in our 6+ months bringing our 18 month old here. The staff and administration as a whole is outstanding, and will go out of their way to make your child feel at home and comfortable. The daily learning plans are great as well.
Understanding how turnover works and teachers change, we wanted to express our gratitude specifically regarding Ms. Beth. She is now in a different room, but the positive impact she had on our son, Nicholas, and the care she took every single day, was second to none. We know that this will positively affect him every day of his life as he grows into a wonderful, caring young man. Thank you Ms. Beth. Please visit Nicholas as often as possible!
We are writing to express our overwhelming support and thanks to our family and friends at Flanagans Pre-School in Trappe. We use the word family because the teachers and caregivers do so much for our children. Sims (6) and Emily (2) have attended Flanagans for the better part of 5 years. It is not unusual for Emily to leap out of our arms and into one of the teachers when we drop her off in the morning. Sims (in aftercare) looks forward to his afternoon in the atrium with his Flanagan friends. Flanagans has provided a safe and nurturing environment for both children as infants and toddlers. As the children have grown so too has the curriculum and opportunities to develop. We feel good that the children are continuously challenged and entertained while at school.
Your overwhelming support of Emily and her challenges with development has touched our hearts. The caregivers at Flanagans have provided so much love and attention that it is difficult to put our appreciation into words. Emily has thrived in this environment and it is obvious that every teacher takes the time to address all of Emily’s special needs. We know that Emily’s progression is due largely to the support that she receives at school.
For anyone looking for a preschool, Flanagans is a great choice. We believe that it would be hard to find a more caring environment that provides the opportunity for children to thrive and reach their full potential.
There are many things my family values about Flanagan’s Preschool: the low staff turnover rate, the small classroom sizes, and the “extras” like Tumble Tots and music class. Most impressive, though, is the curriculum and the dedication of the staff in implementing and improving upon that curriculum. The children have plenty of time for fun and play, while also learning essential kindergarten-readiness skills. The addition of the Kindergarten Club has been excellent for our younger son who loves doing his homework right alongside his older brother.
