I give the clifton school at clairmont 2 stars primarily because the director is very dismissive when parents bring concerns to her about how teaching is done at the school (they're supposed to be "reggio-inspired" but I found that my daughter's teacher *never* used this method. One of her infant teachers was very nurturing and true to the teaching philosophy, but unfortunately she did not move up with her. Her toddler 1 teacher was very authoritarian, to the point of being scary in her raising her voice to the children. She was also very uncreative in finding ways to keep the children's interest. Fortunately, sher will be having new teachers soon so I' confident it will be an improvement.
