This school advertises redirection, but it isn't utilized. A time out would be more appropriate compared to the yelling at the small children that happens when they do something that the teacher doesn't like. It's advertised that the child will be educated well, but you must pay at least $100 extra a month for your child to be in a program called phonics to get the education that is advertised. The children are made to be quiet, even the smaller ones, and running and yelling is prohibited even when skipping for fun and laughing out loud. The teachers have simple certifications like CDC's, and few have Bachelor's. You'd be better off taking your child to a religious daycare where niceness and fun are standards. It's all about the company name over the child's wellbeing. This is a business that advertises. If you want a trued education at this price, please see Canterbury for preschoolers. Very good school. Kindercare is a business. Business over child. The playground and toys are not very good at all either. You'd think the price would warrant good care, but the teachers don't watch the children constantly and they get hurt. Best to go to a facility that has timeout and better care.
The Pre-K program is wonderful at this location. My daughter has made a huge leap in her preparation for kindergarten. The teachers are kind and communicate well with the parents. I would recommend this KinderCare location to anyone.
