I hate to write this review but I think its only fair that I do so. When I was looking around for a daycare/preschool for my daughter I wish I would have found current reviews for this school, so I thought I would share my experience to hopefully prevent parents from going through what we went through.
This was the second school my daughter ever went to. I decided to enroll her here because of the low tuition cost... and like they say... you get what you pay for. I learned that when it comes to your child's safety and wellbeing, there is no price limit.
The teachers have been there for a really long time to the point where they don’t know how to adapt to the current school district system. They don’t teach the kids educational learning, its more of a paycheck to them than anything else. It all began when my daughter was constantly being hurt by another child in her classroom, this child was apparently hurting the kids and the teacher would never say or report the incident. I would see the scratches occasionally but as my child got older, she was able to remember her day and reported that a kid had punched her on her face. I was furious and reported it to the director and they apologized and say they are working with the parents of the kid.
Time goes by and my daughter would tell me about the kid hurting the other children as well as her…. Let’s just say after the 10th incident without any reports coming home, I went to the school and personally spoke to the director and the teachers. They didn’t give me a warm fuzzy feeling that they cared about safety of the children. I removed my daughter the following day and now she sleeps and wakes up and enjoys her new school.
I couldn’t believe the difference in her attitude now that she is in a happy and healthy environment. I really wished I would of seen the signs earlier and just had been brave to do something about it. I sure hope this review helps another parent out. Safety is ALWAYS FIRST!
