The teachers at this school are great & care for the children as they would their own kids. Overall, care & education is very good. However, there is a disconnect between the teachers & information (or lack thereof) that the director communicates to parents. We were notified by the director ** almost 6 weeks after ** a behavior problem started occuring with our child. We were not notified of the problem until the director was ready to kick our child out of school. The miscommunication, unfortunately, continued, with director saying 1 thing & teachers communicating a different message. The school does not seem equipped to handle children that need more firm forms of discipline (i.e., quiet time outs) rather than just trying to reason with the preschool/pre-K aged child. Also, privacy policies have changed at the school without parent notification. In the past, the school had a Spanish language class 1-2 days/week. Parents were informed the program was free. However, after 1st semester ended, we then received a bill for the class for spring semester...several weeks into the spring semester. Had we been properly informed of the policy, we would have chosen differently.
We love RLCDC! My 6 year old began her 'career: there in the toddler room and stay through kindergarten. Our youngest began there this year. The teachers are so creative, dedicated and caring. Our children are happy and learning how to be independent and caring individuals.
This school is amazing. I am constantly blown away by the fact that the director and all the teachers know all 105 kids by name as well as there parents. It is so warm and friendly and I rarely see children crying there. Every teacher is committed to doing whatever is needed to make each child feel loved and cared for. What a blessing to have this school in our community.
I love this school. It is the only preschool in town where I have found that the teachers treat the children like children and not like little adults. It is also a very academic school. They have low child to teacher ratios and are able to teach at all levels needed. I can't say enough good things about this school.
