They are always talking about characteristics of good friends and what it means to be helpful and kind. They continue to develop children socially and emotionally and set a foundation for the success of the students in regards to being a well rounded person.
My 5 year old is in River room and she is learning and growing everyday. My child has struggled with social emotional development and this is one thing that the school has exceeded my expectations in. Through their peace curriculum, she is now able to navigate through situations by self calming and have better academic focus. She is thriving in the Kindergarten program and I could not be more satisfied!
This is not where you want your children. How they talk to kids, how they treat kids they feel are too much work or just don't like personally is very very sad. I saw very poor care given in childrens feelings even calling kids names. Very sad.don't trust your kids to a small town minded place with no standards in place.
I am very disappointed with this school. There is a lack of commitment from the teachers and administration to the children. In some classes teachers are not interested in teaching and don't care about the well being of the students. I transferred my child to another daycare/school, after spending almost two years at Children's Garden, and she is extremely happy and is developing very nicely with her peers. I cannot imagine what she was missing.
