My son has been attending this school since he was 8 months old. He is now 5 and will be starting Kindergarden in the Fall. He is exceptionally well rounded, socialized, and more than ready for the Kindergarden curriculum. It is a farily small center, and they keep the kid-to-teacher ratio pretty small as well. I really appreciate how well the staff know my child, and me personally. I am always able to observe thier interactions together, and they run live cameras on the grounds continually. I find it of the utmost importance that I can trust my day care provider to help fill in for me the best they can while I work and go to school full time. Marta and Miguel (owners) are extremely family orientated, and love the kids each individually! They put families first, and are dedicated to keeping the staff an at A+ Standard. We are extremely happy there , adn will be continueing after school care there when he begins his Kindergarden class this month. They even will go to the school and pick him up! Coultn't ask for more :). On a final note, parent involvement lies on the shoulders of the parents! Only love does their best t opromote and encourage LOTS of parental involvemetn!
The director Kate at the preschool side is very nice, welcoming and seems to have a great understanding of child development. Unfortunately there is a very HIGH teacher turnover in the preschool. Teachers seem to come and go in a blink of an eye which makes continuity of care impossible. Which is a high priority in my book. I also believe the classes can be arranged more on an aspect of where the children range developmentally rather than just based on age. Another high priority. The new afterschool teacher Phome* is very caring, respectful, is interactive with the children and seems as if she loves her job lets just hope she stays. My daughter loves and adores Ms. Maggie as well. Granted the front door has a bell ring when you open it however the entrance is often unsupervised allowing anyone to walk in and out without notice. I never heard of a problem but this makes me uneasy. I believe it s more due to the lack of staff than anything else. One other issue I have is often times certain areas are off limits within the classroom(usally dramatic play area which makes up half the class), leaving a large group of kids in a small area with limited options to explore Dev & learn.
