Current and past Wesley Hall parents provide feedback on the school ...
My grandson has had the wonderful experience of attending WESLEY HALL NURSERY SCHOOL in Westfield for the past two years. I, being his grandmother and retired 1st grade teacher, was leery of finding the right place for my grandson as well as his parents were.
This school meets every expectation imaginable. Their director,Patty Fowler, is the most sincere, heartwarming,understanding, and LOVING director of children that I have ever met. The staff is so caring and each and every one want to get to know you and the students. Their philosophy can't be matched by other places with total emphasis on makiing the child feel special in all ways and developing social skills and academic skills that they are ready for in order to build their confidence and self-esteem.
After teaching for so long that philosophy should be universal to bring about a very healthy ,fun-loving, eager to learn child.
Hats off and many thanks to Patty and to all of her staff in helping my grandson absolutely love his very first experience with school. He called it "HIS SCHOOL" because everything about it brought those exciting feelings inside for him.
He can't wait for his next year there, and they even offer a full time kindergarten which follows the Westfield Public School curriculum.
Thanks again to you Patty, and all of his great teachers who made him feel so warm and cared for. He's no angel, but there wasn't a day that went by where he hadn't made a positive comment and loved his friends.
Learning comes in many forms but to find the right one isn't always easy. Wesley Hall makes it very easy for a child to grow, love and be welcomed every day.
Try to visit , it's a great fun place to see.

I have been a Wesley Hall parent since 2003. My two oldest children have graduated from Wesley Hall and are now in 2nd and 3rd grade. I can tell you that Wesley Hall provided a wonderful foundation from which they were able to grow both intellectually and socially.
When I first began looking at nursery schools six years ago, I looked at several schools in the area. The attributes that led us to choose Wesley Hall included the quality of the education, the low turnover rate among teachers, the style of instruction and the warm, welcoming feel that I found when I took a tour of the school. Those same attributes are still there today. The teachers become part of your family as they help you raise your child for the time that they are there. I love that we all share the same goal to raise a kind, successful and confident child.

Our family's experience with the kindergarten at Wesley Hall was absolutely fabulous! The teachers were warm and caring, the small class size meant my son got loads of individual attention, and the progress he made in reading and math was amazing. The special programs in the afternoon were wonderful and we were just thrilled with every aspect of the program.

My daughter has had a fantastic experience at Wesley Hall! I switched her from another local preschool and am so glad I did. The quality of the education is outstanding. She gets a lot of personal attention from the teachers and comes home every day feeling accomplished and proud of herself.
One thing I particularly like is the school, and the teachers, make an effort to keep parents involved in the classroom. The teachers communicate so well with the parents and keep us up-to-date on what the kids are learning.
I can't say enough about the school. My son is looking forward to attending next year!
