Fisher's Early Childhood Development5

My son has excelled at Fishers. At his previous school we had discipline issues constantly. Within the first month they were gone. The high standards here were exactly what my son needed. He is happier and I cannot be more pleased with his progress. His diction and vocabulary have improved seven fold. Yes they do have corporal punishment but you have to sign off on it and only if the teacher has exhausted every other option. My son has blossomed there!
This school was not a good match for our children. The teachers were unrealistic about the typical behaviors and mannerisms of young children, there was more television watching than learning happening, twice when I arrived to pick my child up there were children playing on the playground without teacher supervision, and they embrace the aged disciplinary practices of smacking children's hands with rulers when they disobey. I would never send my other children to this facility. The director uses stigmatizing words when talking about the children to the parents in front of their child and are quick to label children as 'bad' when they are exhibiting age-appropriate and normal behavior as documented by a physician and psychologist. Apparently, they only want the best and brightest to attend their preschool and have no use for an average child--they did everything in their power to drive my family away when I enrolled my second child there, and treated my first child much differently (better) because my first child was exceptionally gifted and easy to manage.
