My child seems to enjoy the school, but my kid enjoys everything. There have however been numerous times that I've seen the teacher's assistants lose their cool, raising their voices a bit too much. Some of the teachers have been great, while others seem to be there for the paycheck and couldn't care less about my child's education. For the price we pay, we feel it's not worth it. We also recently had a confrontation with one of the owners, and they were very disrespectful.
Elegant Child is truly a home away from home for infants and an exceptional school for children!! We love the administrators, teachers, and nurses. Everyone there is amazing!! They love your children like their own and give them an exceptional environment to learn and grow! It's a true gem in our community!!
The Elegant Child hires teachers who are not certified to be in the classroom. My daughter was in a classroom where the teacher verbally abused her. She did not want to go to school. She used to love it until this teacher. The owner only cares about the money. I have never seen her once in a classroom checking on or holding a child. I just think it is all about our money there. Definitely wouldn't recommend it.
My son has been a student at the Elegant Child since he was one. I can't tell you how comfortable I am leaving him at this center all day! Every concern I have ever had (most of them from being a single mom who worries too much) have been addressed immediately. I have even gotten personal calls from the owner and director both to follow up and check on how he was doing. It is hard leaving him all day but when I drop him off and he turns around smiles and waves bye and is still smiling when I pick him up it is all worth it. My son was also born a micro preemie which means his development was delayed. The staff has worked with him, communicated his triumphs and helped me along the way too. He has now caught up to his peers and I credit EC!
My daughter (only 22 months) has a smile on her face everyday! I love how caring and nurturing her teachers are with her. She comes home with art work that we can refer to when reading books at home (colors/shapes/objects/themes). I love her Toddler II room teachers! Keep up the wonderful work - - we love Elegant Child!
