Vinewood was not a good fit for my son. There was very little structure, a lack of expectations, and poor enforcement of rules. All the classes are together for the first hour or so of the day. There are plenty of teachers to make the ratio 1 to 10, however it was over stimulating for my son. Instead of doing any activities that there were to do, he would just play and act out. I was constantly told that my son was not doing well and was having behavioral problems and he was...along with most of the other kids. While visiting the classroom I saw that when kids acted out they were seldom, if ever, taken to the side and spoken to about rules and the way we should behave in the classroom or outside. When asking about expectations, rules, and structure I heard, "They're 3!" over and over again as if a 3 year old was just not at a stage in their development to impose such ideals. Over all, I felt like my son was not learning. When I asked him about his day he would say, "I don't know" or "I didn't do anything." He wasn't doing anything. I was told he was not ready for preschool and teachers even implied that he may need help of some sort, and so I pulled him out.
