Kids Place Child Care Center-San Anselmo Reviews
this is the best preschool in the area. better than the others in the area.
Both my children attended this school and it was a fantastic experience. The teachers are wonderful, loving, professional, and dedicated. My children graduated and went on to kindergarten fully prepared both academically and socially.
Our family has been at this school for years and I was never asked to donate goods or fix the school. In fact, the entire school was renovated about a year ago and it was all done on the weekends with no requests for parent donations or volunteering, although they did solicit suggestions for things we would like to have changed or updated.
I was also there during the shade structure debate. At no time was I asked to donate materials. It was a few years ago but as I recall there was no way to put up a substantial structure so instead they planted a bunch of trees.
The school has had some small fundraisers which hasn't bothered me because it is a school and yes, it is a business, but it's a small business and they are dedicated to running a quality program not just making money.
I think this school is a great fit for families who value creativity, humor, and appreciate their children as individuals. This is not a "cookie cutter" school rather it is a place where each child will thrive through experiences and activities geared for their individual needs and interests.
I also liked that they teach table manners, and do a lot of cooking and parents are welcome in the classroom at any time and can come in and be "visiting experts" for various classroom projects. It is a fun way to be a part of your child's class.
The teachers and day care professionals are good, but the management is terrible. Very unprofessional. Asked parents to donate goods and time to help clean up and fix the school while running a business. Many families donated materials and items to help build a shelter from the sun for the kids that was never built.
Many families have left this school to one that is close by, and provides a higher value of service for the same cost.
