Maybe not all the teachers have this issue: But keeping a click of mean girl teachers that look and act like they should still be in High School is pathetic. Ignoring your substitute because you dont like her-in front of the students? Playing favorites with students, allowing other students to pick on/get picked on-AND alienating parents with children (pre-schoolers!) that MAY have autism.....gross
Keeping a substitute on staff that the Director knew full well verbally abusive and inappropriately physical with the children (as in force feeding babies with a spoon) is disgusting. Yelling, as in; in my son's face, almost screaming, with red face, with anger and horrible tone at him because on his first day at school he picked up HER coffee cup SHE put on the kids book case right in front of him?? My son had never been to ANY childcare center before-and never since. He had anxiety about the "teachers yelling at me". That is just one instance....too many other things when down at that supposed school.
We loved Sorrento when we first enrolled our three children back in 2011. However, late 2012 the atmosphere began to change at the center. At the time we took our children out of the center, our son had to adjust to three different preschool teachers. This led to a lot of behavioral issues with him at home and at the center. On the topic of behavioral issues is the corrective measures used to discipline children, "Think Table". I understand that kids misbehave, I'm not a na ve, disillusioned parent who thinks her babies are little angels. What I'm in complete disagreement of is the measures used to deal with "high energy" kids. They would also fall victim to this "think table" time with no timer and no idea how long they would be sitting there. Beware if you are a nutrition conscious family as well! We had to have our pediatrician write a prescription to avoid JUICE as a fruit serving every day. Not a healthy place for a child to spend any length of time at. Look else where, we are better off at a Waldorf Preschool now. No time outs and better adjusted children.
My daughter came here from an in-home daycare and Sorrento is BY FAR better! The staff at Sorrento are FABULOUS and my daughter has learned so much. It is a great daycare and school and I would reccommend it to anyone!
