Children are not treated well here. Method of behavior management is yelling, scolding and secluding (placing child in a small closet by himself). It makes me sick to think of what else could go on while no one is looking.


Amount of homework: Agree

My son is in preschool so he doesn't get much homework. However Mrs. Adams does offer recommendations for activities at home when the child is struggling in an area.

I feel that teaching children to respect others is the key to developing integrity. From day one, parents and children are clear on the rules and expectations in the classroom. Children are expected to show respect for everything around from the people to the food. Yes, if you take food you eat it.

This school sells itself as a reading program, but it is really so much more. My son was diagnosed with childhood apraxia of speech at 20 months. Research suggested entering an early reading program because it is likely that my child will have more difficulty learning to read. Mrs. Adams said she would take him the minute she heard my story, even before he started speaking sentences. After seven months (age three), my son is beginning to read. But they are not only helping with reading. Mrs. Adams prides herself in teaching each child as an individual. My son struggles with fine motor, so she focuses on it with him. He is also learning math, geography, cultural issues and history. I visited every 3k program in town before choosing this one. My son is beyond defiant and I knew the other programs could not offer the structure he needed. Mrs. Adams somehow manages to offer zero tolerance for bad behavior while still getting hugs from her students at the end of the day. This program has been vital to the neurological development of my child. So much so that even though my husband is moving for a job next month, I am staying here for the next year so my son can finish his preschool with Mrs. Adams.

Mrs. Adams has created a wonderful program that actually works. Not only is my daughter reading but they reinforce behaviors and values that typical preschool programs lack.

We have had two children attend the Clara Fields program. Our son was one of the first students of Clara Fields. At age 3, he was reading proficiently. Now, at 8 years old, he skipped a grade in school and amazingly reads at an 8th grade level. His vocabulary and syntax is that of an adult. His confidence level soared because of his ability to read and write and his overall knowledge level in all areas increased because of his love for reading. He spent time at school focusing on math and is at the 7th grade level at age 8. Clara Fields teachers taught our son to be disciplined in his subjects, helped him focus on tasks and assignments and made learning fun. Our daughter started Clara Fields later when we realized she only knew 5 sight words after attending Kindergarten. We immediately enrolled her in the Clara Fields summer program and again the results were excellent. She is the top reader in her first grade class. She reads accurately with good comprehension. She not only know how to read all of the sight words but can spell them too. Clara Fields is the type of program that can advance your child or give them the tools they need to "catch up". We will always be grateful for the individualized attention they gave to our children and appreciate that they worked with each child at their own skill level.

Clara Fields teachers have excellent communication with both students and parents. They set clear expectations and because of that deliver exemplary results. All children are treated with fairness. The school promotes inclusion resulting in a high level of integrity.

Clara Fields Literacy Program is an excellent head start for young children (3-5) to gain reading proficiency at an early age. My experience with the program in this past 18 months has been nothing but positive. Most children are eager and happy in this stepped up literacy program and excel over their classmates in the normal school settings.

Clara Fields Multicultural Literacy Program is one of our county's best hidden secrets! With only a few months into the school year, my daughter was able to write the alphabet (upper & lower case letters), write her first & last name, sound out basic words, and could recognize some sight words. Mr. & Mrs. Adams run a very efficient program complete with individual attention and open communication with parents. I will continue to recommend this program!
