I agree that this school "looks good" but it stops there. If you have a preschooler that is already docile, self-motivated, academically gifted and self-disciplined (who does???) then this is the school for you. If not, they will find a way to make you and your child feel unwelcome. They want this to be some school for top achievers (even at this young age), and if your child does not fit that mold, they don't have time for you. How discriminatory and unrealistic is that? The teachers lack the authoritative presence needed to successfully manage young children and they pretty much let the kids do what they want, when they want (picture a 4 1/2 year old refusing to potty train). There is almost no structure and kids are supposed to decide what they want to learn and when they want to learn it. If you actually want your child to be ready for kindergarten and accustomed to a teacher being in charge, you will be very disappointed at this school. Stay away!
This school is one of those "look good pretty schools" but when you get down to where it really counts the staff they are seriously lacking. If you choose to put your child her look a little deeper. The highest they pay in the preschool is 10$ (average is 8$) for the elementary school it is13- 15$ an hour, far less than any other school and they do not offer any insurance. Even walmart has an average pay of 12.50 an hour and they require NO education. They advertise on craigslist all the time because they are ALWAYS hiring. The vast majority of staff do not meet state minimum requirements of a CDA. They do not fire staff even when they receive multiple complaints. While observing in a classroom I personally saw a teacher being very rough with a 9 month old (yanking him up by one arm) because she had unreasonable expectations. This school has potential but they charge the parents an arm and a leg, but the money does not go where it belongs. The money is going straight to the owners pocket and expanding the business. Parents expect they pay for quality staff but they are getting only the teachers who are willing to accept sub par pay with no benefits.
My child is so excited everyday to go to school here! She loves learning now! The teachers, staff, and management are all very nice here and truely interesteted in inspring children to be excited about learning! The teachers are very creative and dedicated to helping the children learn and have FUN learning! The hands on learning approach here is AWESOME! All of the extras are great too ....my child comes home teaching the rest of our household what cool new thing she learned at school each day.....like Latin, sign language, science experiments, math related to cooking and measurment, art, and soooo much more! This school is definately a WOW! And their web based program to keep parents informed about what they are learning everyday is awesome it helps so you can expand on their learning at home! Very INNOVATIVE! Everyone here gets a five star from both parents and kids!
