Excellent school, maybe just comparable to some Montessori centers but the methology they use is more structured, they still combine different approaches. My child went there for pre-k and she started Kinder reading whole books and having a firm base for addition, substraction, meassurement, calendar, clock times and some science. The infrastructure is very good with plenty of room. By comparing schools for my second child we did not find anyone better but to leave both in this school the bill will rise close to $15k/year, I don't consider it expensive but I took the risk of a good public charter. The Morenos family are great people and very respected in the comunity. They are always there and are very aproachable. Special kudos for Dr. Ryan Moreno for figuring out creative ways to atract the kids into science and technology. He makes dinasours for the classes, flies with batteries and LED's like eyes and is always researching new methologies to share with the directors, his parents. This family is very well prepare. Why not 5 starts? ... I consider that in order to comply with the many certifications they have to restrict the academic curriculum, a fair rate will be 4.5 starts.
Thanks Dr. Jackie Moreno! I was so worry about my son and when I approach Dr. Jackie Moreno she listen to me and help me a lot. I think that she is a very important Person and Doctor that work at REM. Also this school has a special class (Learning Lab) where Dr. Ryan Moreno teach in a very smart and different way to our children to discover, explore and learn. Thanks REM for your dedication to our children.
This school is extremely good and truly assures that its students come out well prepared. My son has attended this school since he was 16 months old and is now 4. His teachers to date have been wonderful and highly prepared in child education. This learning center is just that, a learning center, not just a daycare where they do nothing but play all day and get ignored because of the teacher to child ratio. I think it is wonderful to have the school so involved and interested in my child's development. Early on they pointed out that my child would need speech therapy in order to help him better develop his vocabulary and enunciation. I then did my research on which therapy center would be appropriate since they do not recommend any centers. With this, I can understand how some parents become insulted or bothered by someone telling them this about their child but the way I looked at it is even if they were wrong, it was still an additional learning tool for my child. This is a family run school that treats you and your children as family too. They care about the learning outcome of the children and they truly integrate the parent into the learning and development of the child.
the worse school the staffs and the owner arent nice at all i use to work there and they always picked and picked it was terrible wasnt happy at all
We visited many schools and in the end we chose REM. Both of our children, 4 year and 15 month old boys could not be happier. We have piece of mind and know they are being treated with love. Our 4 year old son has autism. When we met with Mr. & Mrs. Moreno and their staff, they helped us set-up a program for him. It is now his third school year with them and he has accomplished more than we ever thought possible. He has truly come a long way. And we owe a big part of his success to REM. Our boys come home happy, telling us all that they learned. We love that our 15 month boy is participating in projects. He has already learned a great deal. The staff is both friendly and helpful. A special thank you to Mrs. Rita Soto, she is always available and willing to help anyway she can. In our time at REM we have come to consider them part of our family, thank you Mr. & Mrs. Moreno, Jackie, Ryan and our favorite Eric!
My son attended this school from June 2011-until June 2012. Although his teacher was very sweet, they are very quick to "refer" children for testing. In other words, they love to have students receive "therapy" for so called issues. My son does have some speech issues and is very strong willed. However, he is very bright and knew much more than the average 4yr. old. After repeated phone calls from their "special education" specialist- I did some investigating and found that the owners sit on the board of directors at the very same place where they were referring my child to. I have no doubt that my insurance would've been charged(as I was told) or the state would pay for his "needed services." As their wallets are fattened, children who deviate from their "norm" are labeled as special needs. My son is now at the Creatvie Learning Center (coincidentally, like the previous reviewer) and doing well. Is he perfect? No, but definitely not "high functioning" (autistic) as suggested by the director. I'm really tired of the push for "early intervention." It's misleading, stressful, and has been twisted into a money making scheme. REM is right in the middle of it.
Worse experience and biggest mistake to have chosen this place to trust these people to take care of my child, they labeled my child as being "too active" according to them just because he was being himself, they were expecting him to seat and not get up at all??? seriously and said he had a problem, I took him to a spychologist and she said that they have a problem and not him, now he's is at creative learning center where he's treated with dignity and respect the classes are 15:2 and the teachers are great....where as REM is 21:2 REM is all about the money and not care about the child ... If your child is the quiet type who just seats there then maybe that's the place for you BUT he/she might not be getting quality care since they have too many kids..... They have a few teachers that are adorable but some that are careless.... I hope I had never put my child in there but you live and learn.....
Our daughter has started her second year and is a well rounded happy child and is learning so much. she is in kindergarten and also in first grade math and language arts. Best decision we ever made to send her here.
My twins just completed two years at REM and it has been a wonderful experience. The faculty treats you like family and the learning environment couldn't be better. My children have some mild learning delays and the combination of REM and therapy through state programs was the right recipe to get them on track. Highly recommend, even if it's a little out of your way geographically. They always have fun learning activities like the fun bus and other visiting exhibits as well as water play and such during the summer. The staff is friendly and professional and they always keep you informed of what's going on in your child's classroom through frequent newsletters (each child has a mailbox). Drop off and pick-up is hassle free as security is tight but they know all parents by name/face. Clean and organized, I don't what else you could ask for in a preschool. We're going to miss REM :(
This school is full of themselves. After repeated conflict with the owner, she let us know our child was not welcome in their VPK program, "because your child will bring down our ratings with NAEYC and other areas." The problem they had with my child is that they were not challenging the academics needed. Our child is now in a different VPK program reading on a 1st grade level and doing kindergarden math. They also cater to the Spanish population and have EXTREME difficulty working with non spanish speaking children. Their teachers are only certified to work in a daycare, not many, if any have bachlor's or higher degrees in early childhood education. They have McDegrees.
My two children attend REM Learning Center and we have been very pleased with the school. Everyone is very friendly and great with the children. My only complaint is the lack of english-speaking facility members and the difficulty to communicate when english is a second language to most faculty members. Spanish is a popular language in Miami, and it is assumed that everyone speaks it. My husband and I do not speak spanish, however, my children now do, which is a good thing. I would have given 5 stars if that was not an issue for us. Overall, a wonderful school to have your children attend.
IHad my doubts about spending the money on pre-school. Always thought I'd save for elementary. Boy was I wrong; this was the best investment I could have made. They take a solid approach to preparing the children for future schools. My daughter had some difficulties with the learning of the alphabet and the numbers. The teachers, assistants, and even the school s owner got involved with helping my daughter catch up with the rest of her class. I could not have asked for more with the love and dedication they offered my daughter. I am looking forward to enrolling my youngest one next year. Highly recommend this school, and special recognition and thanks to MS Ligia
Excellent school, loving teachers. Thank you so much. My son have learned a lot.
I have my 2 kids here and I love it. I'm extremely comfortable leaving my kids here while I go to work and knowing that they are learning and getting the attention they deserved. Worth every penny.
I love this school! It's worth every penny that we've spent for the past two years. This school has prepared my son for kindergarden and he loves to learn and going to school. Kudos to the GREEN DOOR teacher, Ms. Ampi Santelices... We love you.
I give this school 10 stars! My daughter has learned alot. The teachers are really sweet and loving. Every week she brings me her projects!
i went for a tour of this school last week and everyone was so friendly. i didn't call in to let anyone know i was coming and they were managing the school wonderfully. there is a good security policy but at the same time, parents could come whenever they like. the front lobby person knows all the parents and their child by memory. i loved it.
My son's teacher has helped him improve so much that I can say that enrolling him in this school has been the best decision we have ever made.
School is clean, there's always more than 2 teachers present at all times with the kids. A lots space. Kids never mix with older or younger kids.
This is a great school. It is secure, safe and very clean. The children learn a great deal quickly and offer great programs from ballet to karate.
