I love this school! As with being a member of any co-op, being an RS family is an entirely personal experience. So when someone expresses a complaint or complement, it is entirely based on the limited perspective of that one person's experience. So be it. So here's my take... This school has been everything I didn't know I was looking for in a preschool. My child thrives here, playing with such verve, I can't imagine him in anywhere else. The administration is dedicated to the students' needs, safety, and interests. The yard is full of joyful voices, thoughtful conversations, hugs, costumed bodies, and muddy faces. It has been a magical place for my family and I highly recommend being a member of this caring and exciting community of learners, both adult and child.
I didn't read the comment with the axe to grind as it seems to have been deleted, but unfortunately i could imagine that it was more accurate than not. Though this school has magical potential, the administration (effective fall 2009) leaves much to be desired. The families are great but the teachers are not professional and allow their insecurities to run wild, negatively affecting the experiences of members they feel threatened by. Even worse, the needs of the children are subordinate to the needs of the ego of one of the teachers. A more enlightened staff would elevate the school and restore it to its child-centered roots. As it stands now those who want the best experience should try not to pay too much attention.
The previous poster clearly has an axe to grind. This post has entirely missed the spirit of Rose Scharlin, and it's unfortunate that this poster has allowed their personal politics to interfere with their assessment of this amazing, child-centered environment. If you are committed to the ideals of a co-op, then come see our precious school and judge for yourself. You will be inspired.
One of the best pre-school experiences a child can have. Outdoors; Nature; Secluded; Animals; Choices; Progressive Curriculum; Attracts co-op families who are committed to all the childrens' upbringing - not just their own.
