I have taken my child out along with other parents due to the unstable behavior of the ECS principle and still nothing is done about her. We have even stopped going to the Church as we feel they are just ignoring this situation. Very sad and disappointed in whole thing.
If you choose to have your child traumatized and filled with anxieties, this is the place for you. If you wish to be disrespected by school administration, sign up for it. Prehistoric is the best word I can find to describe it.
Both of our sons have attended Advent since they were in the infant room. We absolutely love the warm, caring and professional staff and teachers at this school. Every single child is treated like family. The programs are well run and provide a stimulated learning experience. I recommend Advent to everyone.
This one of the best pre-school in Boca. I am so surprised by the negative comments. The school is extremely organized, clean and everyone is caring and professional. As far as staff turn over (referring to some of the previous comments made by parents below) well what can I say. Ms. Geenie in the baby room has worked there for over 20 years. My kids have been going there for 4 years and I see all the same staff in the office and all their teachers are still there. A lot of the pre-school teachers have been there many years. I don t think that there is any more turn over than there is at any other pre-school. The principal is a little too strict with the school policies but other than that I LOVE this school!!!!
Advent is a caring loving environment for both children and parents. I have 3 children that have thrived in this school from 6 months old. I have seen love, kindness, generosity and teaching each and every day for many years. The staff has a low turn over rate. I notice that they try to work with children who have had a difficult time in a group setting. I have also witnessed parents who are unwilling to take responsibility for the non disciplining of their child ~ blame everyone and anyone. This school is Boca's gem ~ and it has been for many many years!
I had to take my daughter out from this school. The teacher dislocated her arm by force, and then a month later of this incident she stopped talking, start biting fingers and was scared and finally refused to go there and said she is not happy. While observing the glass, the teacher was unable to keep control of it, and it was a circus. Heard similar feedback from other parents too. The principal is unprofessional as well as the underpaid teachers
Unprofessional, uneducated, untrained teachers as you will find out as well as talking with other parents. They hire anyone who is willing to accept a low pay. The center is dirty, cluttered and messy. Playground is not safe, open bushes and spikes that can hurt eyes. Some of the equipments are not safe and kids can fall down easily and get hurt really badly. They may have 16-18 kids at the play ground and only one teacher, when the other teachers irs gone for 20-30 minutesg
