Strongly Not Recommended, 5/14/2014

This was an awful experience! My kids attended this preschool for a short period (2 y/o full day and 6y/o after school care). Children were completely neglected (and poorly fed). My children... really suffered there and hated every moment. The owner looked nice when we first met, but it didn't take long to notice that she only cares about the money. The helpers don't care about the kids as well. If you watch them a bit, they don't even talk to the children. I've seen many day cares in my life. This one is so bad that it is beyond comparison.

Wonderful!, 5/06/2011

My daughter loves it! The other kids are nice and helpful to one another. Lots of books and activities and a nice play area outside.

Just keep in mine

Very poor at taking care of the kids. It was my son's first day of attending the school. He would cry and would not leave my side. The lady who was in charge of the school told me that it is okay and that she would help my son transition. She would always talk to me with kindness in the morning and in the afternoon when I pick up my son. She tells me how well my son did at school. All the TALKING showed me that she cares about my son and made me think that my son was really doing well. She would tell me to just drop my son off and just leave, so it would help him with the transition faster. So I did what she asked me to do. I left and closed the door and signed in my son in the signing book. I looked through the window to see how my son was doing. She would take my son and let him sit by the sliding door. She did not do anything but just sit and talk with the other staff member. I opened the door and asked to see how my son was doing and then she started to act as if she cared by caring him and talking to him.

It's not what you think

I have checked out this Montessori Preschool, to see if it would be the right place for my son. This place did not catch my attention. There were a lot of mixed ages learning together. The school had some Montessori learning materials however, children were not using them as much as I thought they would. I have gotten the feeling that some of the Montessori materials were there to bring in costumers.
