Hi!!! I just wanted to reach out and thank you all very much for all that you did for my child this summer! She really loved going there and will miss the staff! Thanks again for everything and good luck this school year. ♥️

Fort Washington

Friday my daughter finished her last day of summer camp at Fort Washington and will start Kindergarten on Monday. I’m reaching out because I wanted to share with you how positive our experience at ELCA has been with our child’s Pre-k teacher, Maggie Winner, and Director Christina Sibley. We attended another center prior to ELCA and been through many directors and teachers and these two are by far some of the best there is.

Maggie’s compassion, patience, and creative way of teaching have helped my daughter thrive and be in a perfect position to go into Kindergarten. Aside from teaching, Maggie is one of the best humans I’ve ever met. She is truly one of a kind and we will be eternally grateful that we got to share a year of our life with her.

Christina has been such a consistent, reliable presence with a knack for planning and handling difficult situations. I’m sure it wasn’t easy handling all the COVID stuff and she did it seamlessly, even over the weekend. She is ALWAYS there. In our experience at other centers, sometimes the Director would be hard to track down if you really needed to speak with them. Not Christina. She’s there for early morning drop-offs and later afternoon pickups. And she responds to emails almost always on the same day. There were times when I emailed her over the weekend with something for the coming week and I’d be surprised when she responded before Monday morning. That’s unheard of. Sometimes I’ve worried about her work-life balance, she’s so available at the center. In my professional experience in the banking industry, we have a high turnover rate too due to the nature of the industry. However, when we have a stellar employee that we’d be devastated to lose, we make sure to do everything we can to make sure we retain them. Additionally, all the staff seems to genuinely like and respect her, which is a hard line to walk.

I hope you know how lucky you are to have Maggie and Christina. They made our lives so much easier and we will miss them dearly.

Last day at ELCA and the end of the summer carnival. After 3 1/2 years together, I cannot even put into words how special this place has been to us over the last few years! You worked tirelessly through a pandemic and helped keep this space the sense of normalcy our children needed. The staff has become family and we cannot thank you all enough for loving our child like one of your own, nurturing her, helping her be the best version of herself, and preparing her for her next big chapter! Our child quite frankly grew up here and we are going to miss you all so much, this is not goodbye, just see you later! Our family loves you very much! Kindergarten here we come!

ELCA has been a godsend for my family! We have had very bad experiences with previous daycares for our son. ELCA has made us feel like we are a part of a family! The director Mrs. Donna is extremely helpful, compassionate, and understanding. Ms. Krystal (toddler teacher) is by far the best teacher my son has had! He has already learned so much in a short period of time. Ms. Krystal keeps the children very active throughout the day with fun and creative activities and crafts! Our family is so grateful to have found such a caring and wonderful daycare!

Since my daughter started here it has been a beautiful thing. I feel so warm and safe with my daughter being in their care.

My son was in the pre-k class and absolutely loved it! The teacher Miss Diane has been there for a long time and is so loved by all. My son learned so much and had an amazing time there with new friends. This place comes highly recommended by other moms locally and now I see why!

I changed jobs and we moved to Doylestown from the Philadelphia suburbs. I was nervous about finding a new daycare for my nine-month-old, and feel so fortunate to have found ELCA-Buckingham! The teachers have decades of experience and care so much about their job and kids. It’s impressive. The center is also very transparent with excellent communication. We actually started with ELCA right smack in the middle of the Omicron surge, and the director handled the difficult situation smoothly and professionally. My daughter used to get sick from her prior daycare all the time, but at ELCA I believe she’s gone the longest stretch without illness, only to be broken by a possible cold from Dad! We feel that our daughter is in excellent care, and would definitely recommend ELCA!

I was super nervous when my baby first started here a few months ago because he had only been home with family. Never did I imagine the love and village were just the same here as at home. They treat EVERY kid as if it’s their own. I am so happy to drop my son off knowing he is in good hands. From the wonderful staff at the front door to the teachers who show nothing but patience with my baby boy. THANK YOU ALL FOR ALL YOU DO DAILY!

This means so much to us as a family to know that our daughter is loved and supported at school as well as at home.

I love the staff and I even love the new location! We struggled at first, but I am glad to say that they made us feel right at home.
