HORRIBLE PLACE...ALL LOOKS BUT NO EDUCATION. TOURS ARE ALL ABOUT MONEY AS THEY RUSH AND PRESSURE YOU INTO APPLYING TO GET THEIR $50!!! SAD, WOULD NEVER ALLOW MY CHILD AROUND THESE MONEY HUNGRY HARDLY EDUCATED PEOPLE.
If you decide to enroll your child into this school, think carefully. Teacher quality are poor. Sometime I don't understand what they were saying. You don't know what your child been doing in school. They just send in tons of paper at the end of the week. They learn same thing over and over again. Not very exciting for my children. Teacher and parent relationship are none.
We were hesitant to have our son attend this school at first because of its location. However, our son attended this preschool after attending a family child care home and another daycare center in the area. We have been extremely happy with the responsiveness and nurturing nature of the staff. Our son really thrived here. We can tell that the teachers really like their work and love children very much. The only improvement would be the type of art projects provided, but you really get a great bilingual education (Chinese and English) with emphasis on both Chinese and American culture. The school also keeps the teacher-child ratio lower than many other preschools. The children are always well behaved. They were also great in helping my son potty train. It really only took about 2-3 weeks for him to pick it up and no longer need a diaper, even during naps and through the night. All of the teachers strive to get to know your family and really make you feel like you are part of a community. I have to give special recognition to Teacher Judy for doing a great job!
