"To the fisrt parent who commented on 10/27/11.......most if not all
schools are suppose to have cameras that the parents are able to view by
request and if u think something has happened different from what they
say, u have the right to view it.

"My town has free preschool for children when they turn three. Today was my
daughters third day at preschool and I received a phone call she has a
scratch on her cheek that happened when her teacher pulled her hand away
from her mouth that she was spitting her food into her hand. When I
received the phone call the director gave me a different story than the
teacher did. Her story was that my daughter was trying to stick her
fingers down her throat. The one thing I do not like is preschool is from
9 to 3 is too long of a day. In the student booklet I received nap time is
two hours and fifteen minutes so when I asked the teacher she stated it
was only for one hour and fifteen minutes. I have scratched my daughters
face in the past by accident myself so I hope that is just what happened
between my daughter and her teacher. I would like to find out if there are
any other incidents in this school that have been reported. I had to sign
a incident report.

"Hello: We have a little boy that has down syndrome and who is going to be
3 years old in August. We live in Mexico but we are going to move to San
Antonio, Texas for the next school period (August). I would appreciate if
you could be so kind to recommend us a kindergarden that will provide
special education for our son. We also have other 4 children (13, 11, 9,
7) with no special needs.
We are going to live in the northeast area of San Antonio, and we woul
rather attend to a public school but we are open to another suggestion.
I thank you in advance for the help or orientation that you could give us.
"I would like to thank you, I recently had a bad experience with my
kindergartner's teacher. These are very helpful tips, as a parent we may
think we have an idea of what we are looking for in finding a suitable
learning environment for our children, but it is always great to have an
"Thank you for the info my son in preschool and this help me make the right
choice of schools."
"When looking a private schools be aware that even though some may suggest
that they offer a very relaxed calms environment and are looking to get
your child acclimated with the environment this may not be the case. In
fact they are watching you and the child. If you speak up and disagree at
all with anything you'll be out. Eldorado in orange is one of those wolves
under sheep's skin. A child was crying when this was brought up....they
did not remedy the situation instead sent the 'informant' out the door.
So if your child is crying because of the school that's a sign the
environment is not the right place for you baby. "

"My grandson Aidan will be 2 yrs. of age in July 09. He loves books,
writing, and music. Due to his mom not being able to pay for day care, he
goes to his grandmothers' where his female cousin goes also. He has
little stimulation there other than the 2 children fighting over toys. I
work a full time job and provide care for him on weekends only. His mom
and I would like to see Aidan get a good head start in life and be able to
attend an educational, yet fun environment she can afford. They live in
South Buffalo, NY. His mom is said that she makes a few dollars too much
to qualify for help in paying for day care from social services. Please
guide us on what we can do to remedy the situation. Thank you for your
help. It is greatly appreciated.
"Depending on the age, each child adjusts to preschool differently. If your child is having separation anxiety be very positive about the school, staff and other children. Assure your child that you will be back to pick her up at the end of the day. Get involved!! Children feel better when their parents help with school projects, events etc."
"I am concerned that my preschooler does not like to attend school. She cries every morning when it is time to go. Should I be concerned with the school?"
