Utterly awful experience for my family. Staff are cold and are often caught talking about children and parents. You and your child will thrive here if you are willing to partake in such behavior. If not, then I suggest sending your child to another establishment where your complaints are taken seriously.
ST ANNE'S PARISH DAY SCHOOL is simply one of the most educationally and joyful schools for any child to experience in their lifetime. The child is taught in a manner that will follow them all their life. The staff and teachers are so onvolved in the child's positive learning experience. Each child is given individual time that does not impact negatively on any other student. Parent participation is so welcomed and encourage,especially at the preschool level. My grandchildren have and attend this school and they have grown in so many ways and learned so much. I can not say enough to emphasis what a great school this is.
I could not agree more with the negative comments above. I too experienced the snooty attitude and the gossip amongst parents & so called professionals! As an educator myself this was totally unacceptable to me! Worried about my sons treatment I wrote a strongly worded email to Ms Banta and received a very apologetic letter. However, naturally I became 'that' parent as a result! If you are OK with your child being manhandled to sit still for story time, mocked amongst adults then go right ahead and send your kids here. If not please spend your $ elsewhere!!! My son is happy and thriving at his new establishment :)
I cannot imagine who or why someone left a bad review. Unless its because they want to keep,this amazing school a secret. I love this school. Everyone is wonderful. My children learn so much. They are so happy there. I trust everyone in this school completely. I can't imagine a better place for kids.
We have been at St. Anne's now for two years. With three kids in attendance, I have gotten to experience at least 4 different classrooms and 8 teachers. We couldn't be happier with the preschool and elementary school. Our kids are excelling in the warm and caring environment that is Saint Anne's. The staff truly know our children and care about our family. The small classroom size of around 15 students with two teachers was a great draw for my husband and myself. The school has far exceeded my expectations academically while providing a caring, nurturing environment.
My daughter loves her 4 y/o preschool class. Her teachers are great and she has mastered writing her name and letters a-f so far in the past month. We are very happy with the education she is getting and are even looking into kindergarten there. She has met many new friends and is sad on the weekends when she cant go to school.
STAY AWAY! I tried to file a formal complaint with the state for this preschool/day school, but since the preschool is four hours or less, they don't have to be licensed at all. Now this may not be a problem for you if you are sending your child to the school-age program, but be prepared for your child to roam out of his school-age classroom into a preschool room UNATTENDED. If they attend the Parents Morning Out, expect the teachers to gossip about each child/parent after you pick them up. EXPECT (this has gone on for 2 years) for a parent who does NOT work at the school to hand you a sign-out sheet for your child in PMO and then gossip about all children. Why she is doing this when she doesn't even work there is beyond me. EXPECT that if you send your child to preschool you will not greeted warmly if at all. Basically, you could sign out any child and take them with you AND NO ONE WOULD NOTICE. Don't let the "snooty" attitude of the teachers and staff fool you- they are not professionals. If you send your child here, be prepared for this as I have had 7 other parents confirm everything I have just written above.
Wonderful school, I wish that there were more grades there. My son loved it.
St. Anne's is great! This is my daughter's third year there. All their teachers are degree holding,certified teachers. They even have a certified music teacher for their preschool thru 5th grade! The class sizes are great and parent involvement is high! This is an excellent school!
