I wouldn't leave my child here if it was the last place on earth! Most of the teachers are rough with the kids, my daughter fell and her teacher was told by the owner to leave her there and not pick her up because you shouldn't spoil children! My daughter was 2 years old!! The teachers also have no patience with the children. There is basically an air of discontent and I think it's because of the owner being very unfriendly to both the children and her own employees. This is not the Montessori model I had come to believe would be right for child.
Overall I was pleased with the academic progress my preschooler made. The only subject I saw was weak was writing. Their program didn't emphasis writing and/or story retelling. I did that component at home. The teachers have experience with children but they lack knowledge of current early education pedagoy.
