I feel the entertainment was age appropriate. I was a tad disappointed in the amount of time actually spent entertaining and what it consisted of for the price. I think Ellie is a kind person..and this is meant in the nicest way but reviews should be fair and honest.. I just think maybe more around 75.00 would be appropriate for 45 minutes of entertainment. She hands out stickers, has the children play with instruments, does bubbles, and sings songs. It was fun but didn't have the wow factor for me. I also did not have a way to have her play music bc it was an outdoor party and this did not seem to have been communicated properly. I do feel she should have charged me less based on the circumstances but the kids had an okay time. I do appreciate her smile and good attitude about the schedule of events and making it work without the music. I wish there had been more of a wow factor. Overall a 4. ...more

I have used Miss Ellie's Preschool party for three years now and soon my son's 7th birthday is coming up and definitely will be considering her if she is available. I love the idea that she incorporates music and activities that involve all of her audience which tends to be for me a huge hit. I can say without any doubt that she would be fantastic hit with your children and I believe also that she can reach audiences beyond the preschool years too. ...more

Ellie recently came and entertained for my daughter's 3rd birthday party and my husband and I were simply blown away by her ability to engage all the children for the entire time she was there!! She was like the "pied piper"! Ellie arrived early and took the time to learn all the children's names and called each child by name during the entertainment. (The parents couldn't believe she could remember all 16 names!!) She brought a variety of fun activities for the children....scarves, ribbons for dancing, rhythm sticks, instruments and made a point of encouraging the children to share their own ideas with each activity. Especially fun was the parachute and bubble time! Even the adults loved the bubbles!! We will definitely be calling Ellie again for our younger daughter's birthday!...more

We hired Ellie for our daughter's first birthday party after we had taken two sessions of Music Makers, and we couldn't be more pleased. She arrived early enough to set up, and when two guests were late because of car trouble, she was flexible enough to wait for them to arrive so that their kids would not miss out on the fun. She engaged the kids AND their parents for 45 minutes, and we got tons of compliments about how they looked forward to taking some of the activities and trying them at home.

Ellie is worth every penny. She is professional, punctual, and prepared for anything that comes her way. You really do take away something from her session instead of just knowing your kids were entertained--they were learning, too!

My 2 yr old had a fantastic time at a birthday party where Ellie was performing! Ellie is extremely engaging with children of all ages and kept the attention of my very active 2 yr old for almost 45 minutes! She gets the children involved in a variety of activities-singing, dancing, playing instruments. It was so much fun to watch my daughter and would love to have Ellie to our next child's birthday party!

Ellie led a fantastic sing-a-long at our home with a herd of around 12 2 and 3 year olds for my son's 3rd birthday (plus a baby and 3 5 year olds). She wrangled the group brilliantly and patiently without them even knowing it. The kids were delighted with the singing and dancing and our normally shy son basked in her subtle attention throughout the party. The instruments, props and parachute she used were big hits and the transitions were so smooth. Our 5 year old even claims the train whistle signaling the changes were his favorite part. Ellie created a wonderful memory for us and our kids-she clearly has a love of both music and children. We highly recommend her!!!...more

We had Ellie come for my 5 year old's birthday party - Ellie engaged all the kids, they were up, moving, dancing, singing and smiling - The birthday girl had a blast with a smile from ear to ear the whole time. Ellie sang songs with her guitar, scarves, bubbles and more - It was all very exciting without being chaotic at all. Pure old fashioned fun!!

My daughter saw Ellie perform at a party last summer and begged to have her come for her birthday this year. She was a huge hit. I don't know how she's able to remember all those kids' names and get them so engaged--but, honestly, you've never seen a group of 4-year-olds so riveted, for so long. I wish I had half that ability to keep my kids' attention. :)

My son just had his 4th birthday party where Ellie was the main attraction. I was impressed with the way she kept the childrens interest and had every child involved from ages 9-2 years old. With sixteen children she managed to make them all feel special by remembering every name and allowing the children's to suggest dance moves while playing and singing songs. I would recommend her services to anyone looking to have a birthday party that children and parents alike can enjoy. Really takes the guess work out of entertaining large and small parties!

Ellie entertained a group of 15 children (in our basement) for my son's 5th birthday party. The kids absolutely loved it and so did we!

Ellie is a true professional and clearly loves what she does. Her music is unique-she finds lots of songs from around the world and the children really respond.

I would recommend Ellie without reservation! She is a treasure.
