My son entered into the PreK program at the Fry Rd location (now moving to the new Mason facility) last fall. He came in probably a bit behind on where he should have been academically for his age but is now fully ready for kindergarten. His teachers, Ms Bolten and Ms T, are absolutely wonderful. Not only did they provide an environment that allowed him to excel academically, but they are so sweet and loving to him. The management has also been great. Ms Eby is welcoming and helpful. The building was kept very clean as well. Communications with the school were great. I can't say enough good things about the experience we had. I cannot imagine where the bad reviews came from - my guess is that they were at one of the other locations because the team from this school were outstanding! Thank you Ms. Bolten for being such a wonderful teacher!

Please be aware before you enroll in british Prep.
- Worst management I ever saw.
- Very money minded
- Lots of hidden fess and charges
- Monopolized rules
- Rude staff
- no chains in USA so they do not care about their name. Just care about money.

I will not at all recommend it. Please save your hard earned money.

Well... Im talking about the one in Cinco Terrace... The worst experience ever... I regret I had sent my son to that place... I cannot call it school... it is far far away to be a educational institute... I had several issues, my 4 years old son was bulled by some of the other kids... he started saying bad words... being aggressive and the worse... he was so unhappy...
About the principal... She blamed my son to be a bad influence teaching bad words to the other kids... well... He did not know bad words before to went to that school... After a while my son stated telling me, he did not want to talk in Spanish, that he did not like Mexicans, I was really surprised! I talked to him about all the good thing about Mexico and Latin American! One Friday I saw 3 kids doing bulling my son, saying he was a baby with dirty pants, in from of them I did not say anything, after all they are just kids, but I when to talk to the principal, I told her maybe he was having a rough time because some of the kids are making fun of him, i told her they call him baby, and he did not like it... Her answer was... well your son behaved like a baby... such an answer for a educated woman!
Next Monday, she call saying that my son was expelled from the school, that I have 2 weeks... well my unhappy son is not staying one more day with that kind of person.
He is going in another school, making friends, learning... and most important being HAPPY! after all the principal did make me and my son a favor!
BTW he does not say bad words now...

This is the most fantastic preschool. I have been so happy since moving here knowing that my daughter was settled into an excellent education system. Her teachers here are very encouraging and I love the entire staff. This school is everything they say it is. I can't believe what she has learned already.

I would not recommend this school ! Management is unorganized. I have signed up my son for summer camp and the next day they called me that his place was already taken and they put him on the wait list.
I'm very dissapointed and never go back to this place.
I'm wondering if they giving preferences to another people who signed up after me...So rude

Spelt is a noun not a verb - you mean "spelled" and not the grain "spelt". Also, Brittany is not part of the EU in the same way as Texas is not part of the UN. Brittany is a administrative region of France. Please - if you are going to correct someone, at least type in "g o o g l e".

I think this is a wonderful school. Both my children have attended and I have nothing but praise for the wonderful teachers and staff. The children that leave here always get praise from their kindergarten teachers as they are well prepared and well behaved. The management team are always friendly and know all the children's names and always make you welcome. I have never met better preschool teachers and especially Mrs Schneider in the bridge class.

The staff at this school is amazing! They all work hard to provide a wonderful education for each child. After visiting many of the Preschools in Katy and my children attending a few others I discovered that they are daycares that claim to be school. BPPS is a schools with the extended hours for us working parents. Every concern was always addressed and I would'nt consider myself the easiest parent to deal with! Mrs. Eby always treated me with kindness and took a genuine interest in my family. The one thing I would like to see is the playground expanded and improved.

For your Information..........."Brittan", is spelt "Britain". Until you can learn to spell correctly then you might want to hold off on the reviews. Perhaps you are confusing "Brittan" with Brittany - also part of the European Union (France). The well travelled owners of this school do however know their geography.

owners too busy traveling the world and not focused on their daycare. BPPS might do better in Brittan, not in Katy Texas!

I was not pleased at all with the school. My child was going to attend there but after doing some research with CPS I found that atleast one teacher has been reported to CPS several times it was too scary! I don't believe that the school screens their teachers good enough and when I walked in they were very unprofessional. I want my daughter to have GREAT teachers and qualified teachers not just a random person they put in to fill the spot. It didn't seem to be organized and the facility was just not what I thought it should be! Upon walking in the person giving me the tour didn't seem to know what was going on. With as much money as they are asking they should have qualified staff and be able to screen their teachers not just a simple background check but one that includes checking to see if they have any cases with CPS ever. If you can't take care of your own kids then you can't take care of others is my opinion.

I love the British Private Prep School. My daughter entered as a preschooler and went on to the Pre-K class 3 days a week. The staff was really supportive and encouraged our family greatly. My daughter would ask every day if it was a school day. I appreciated the owner's commitment to excellence and it really showed up in what she and her friends learned. My daughter entered kindergarten reading among other things and I have to give credit to the school. She now asks frequently to go back to British Private Prep School because she misses it. The classrooms are far nicer than most classes I've seen at Katy ISD. I thought it was really clever the way they rotated to different classrooms. I also liked that the children were asked to behave and that the classes seemed to be having fun but were in order. At a lot of other schools all they seem to do is have free play. It's refreshing that there is a school that has expectations of the students who go there.

This schools playground considering its size is equipped more than adequately with, 11 tricycles/scooters and circular path, large play unit with slide, 2 park benches,picnic table, basketball court and balls. On the playground children are served iced water from a water bottle without touching it to their mouths. No store bought curriculum here, like the Abeka or Higher Reach. Not all, but some staff have degrees. What would child care cost if they all had degrees? Staff are pleasant, Directors have many years of experience. They more than welcome feedback from anyone, it can't be fixed unless they are aware. This school is nearly full with over 180 enrolled and is 98% referral generated.

Upon touring the British Private Prep School I observed several faults with the facility and staff. The one thing that truly stood out was the poor playground facility. There is minimal equipment an the children where receiving water from a squirt bottle due to no water on the playground. This is very unsanitary and can spread germs quickly. Most of the staff was pleasant, however the young lady that gave the tour was very short and unprofessional. I would not recommend this school to anyone! I chose Child's Reflection, a more adequate school that has a great staff and facility.

It is a very poor facility. Assistants and helpers are rude, uneducated and careless towards children. Poor supervision.
Management is unorganized. Communication is sporadic. They probably listen to your concerns, but on the long run you realize that they don`t take it into consideration, as nothing change or improve. Your money is just truly welcome!!!
You will find more academics in their curriculum than in most of the preschools in Katy. But, it is inconsistent teaching, and no child psychology is involved at all!!!

I have had a child at this school. The school itself is clean and organized. The Management/Owners are nice people overall in general. But they are very "annul" about how the school is run. Too much micro-management. The other reviewer commented that it's all about money with them (BPPS). That is very true. They need to relax a little and don't be caught up with the "proper" way to do everything. Let the children experience more that one way ("the proper way!") of doing things. It's a little tooooo British for our family.

I would like to update my review of last October (2008) by saying that in the last three months my daughter has had a very positive experience with her pre-k teacher who is tremendously kind and nurturing and has devoted much time to improving the children's letter recognition, writing and reading of sight-words. I have since October spent a little time in the classroom helping with reading stories and assisting with a Christmas project and have been impressed with the way she keeps the children focused in a busy environment with lots of distractions. The administrative staff are always super friendly and the Director level is interested in parental feedback as a means to identify areas for growth.

My child has been attending the British Prep for a few months on a part-time basis in their Pre-K program. To date, I would describe this school as adequate. The plus points are: a clean and inviting indoor space with a non-institutional feel (unlike some of the other day cares in Katy). The school also offers the standard extras like ballet, gymnastics and Spanish and there are seasonal parties throughout the year as well as field trips. The school falls short in the following areas: whilst the curriculum is impressive on paper, it is not delivered as well as it could be. The staff are not always experienced at teaching their particular level/age and the objectives and output are not paced as thoughtfully and appropriately as they should be. The quality of work that comes home in the back pack is poor and the standard of music and art in the classroom is extremely low. There is also too much reliance upon young and inexperienced teaching assistants who are unusually surly and disinterested in the children. Whilst the indoor facility is pleasing, the outdoor recreational area is limited, consisting only of a small sandy enclosure with a climbing frame and a few ride-on toys. The part-time program is expensive for what it offers compared to somewhere like CrossPoint or Grace Fellowship. This is an average facility.

My children have attended British Private Prep school for more than five years now. The classrooms are very bright and well kept. The staff to student ratio is one of the best in Katy. The staff is also caring but structured, firm, and fair. Exactly what I want for my children. The children do not stay in the same room all day which is a big plus for me. My eldest came out ready to excel in the Katy ISD schools and my youngest is on his way to reading success. My kids go in smiling and sometimes I have to tear them away from all their friends.

This "school" was kept clean and staff were nice and helpful. They only wanted to serve skim-milk and my preemie 20% percentile child should be having whole- To be able to bring him some from home I had to speak with the director. This should not have been that big of a deal. Also early on I once brought him in on the wrong day and was called two hours later to pick him which I promptly did- however they charged me $38 dollars. This may be their policy but it seemed very nit picky to me. When I asked about this the management started to tell me that I brought him in on the wrong day and I told her I understood that was my fault and I was not HER pupil. I just wanted to let her know that $38 dollars was a little bit too much and that maybe they should cut some slack. As far as learning is concerned- my child hasn't been there long but he seemed to have learned more at gymboree.

This is a very good day care. It is clean and has caring staff. It has a typical British approach, more rigid than what most Americans would like, so it is not for everyone. Another mother was upset, though, because they were serving her toddler 2% milk instead of whole, even though doctors in America recommend whole. She had to bring in the whole milk every day for them to give it to her child.

No manners at all from the staff members to the President. \r
First I thought they were deorganized but I confirmed they are mean and discriminate. Yes, they select who enters and who don't. I better run away from that family business.
