This is a family business which is nice but I cannot get over one situation: It was my son's turn to transition from one classroom to the next and they transitioned a child younger than him. The reason I was given was that "they have known the other families longer." That is not best practice and I do feel that because my son is obviously not of middle eastern descent they passed him over. When I brought the situation up, they made the change, but it has left a bad taste in my mouth to date.
I send both my sons there. The building looks nice, but the staff were not as we expected. We spend lots of money on our kids there and I feel like it was all gone to waste. They lack knoledgable staff and they lack the experience necessary to run such a facility. They try to save money by hiring unqualified staff but the kids pay the price. some of the teachers that I spoke to there during my kids stay, we using their experience at home with thier own kids on thier students. I think that was just simply wrong. Notall kids are the same and you can't expect all kids to behave like yours. We moved our kids to a different day care and this is when I knew that I really hurt my kids by placing them at childrens garden. after I saw other day cares, I couldn't forgive my self for what I put my kids through. I didn't know any better and I should have done the reasearch necessary to compare the quality of the teachings instead of just be impressed with the nice building. I honestly encourage every parent that is reading this review to do the work and investigate the day care before placing thier kids there. I advice every person I talk to now to stay away from that day care.
My daughter went to this school for 10 months, the facilities are nice, but the kids there don't learn that much, my daughter is in the preschool and I feel that she is not learning new things. Also they are totally greedy when it comes to money, when they close the school due to snow or bad weathers they still would charge the parents for that days, even if the parents still have to send their kids to a day care that day, when they wanna consider them selves school to collect more money from the parents they will do that, but they still wanna charge the parents for the school break days. Totally doesn't make sense, I can't wait till August comes so that I can move my daughter to a real school,
My daughter went to CG for about 10 months.. The facility is nice. The classrooms are clean and updated. The teachers seemed to really care for my daughter. One small issue I had was that her teachers sometimes spoke to her in Arabic. My family is not of middle eastern descent, so I would have preferred that she be spoken to in English, especially as her language skills were developing. I also feel that this school was not as academically strong as the school we currently attend. It seemed like there was a lot of "free time" as opposed to direct instruction. My biggest complaint is the lack of flexibility regarding the number of days you can attend. I'm a teacher and wanted my daughter to attend part time during the summer to keep her in her routine. The director refused to budge on this. We only wanted 2 days per week. She insisted on 5 half days or 3 full days. It didn't make sense to pay that much money when I wasn't working at the time. When I informed her that we would be forced to look elsewhere for the summer and would likely stay there if we liked the other school, she didn't seem to care. She lost clients who always paid on time and spoke highly of them.
In one word horrible !! rude staff !! pulled my child out of there within 3 weeks ... it is amazing how much nicer they trat one race over the other...i was and still am shocked that people like that get to run a school, they would be better running a gas station or a mechanic shop.
This daycare is amazing!! I love it and more importantly my daughter loves it. I've had her there for a year and wish I started her there before. The staff goes above and beyond anything you can expect. Each child is treated like a person who is loved and cared for. Every morning I drop my daughter off I feel the comfort and ease of leaving her at home.
This daycare is the best!!!! I had my daughter there when she was three months old until she turned two, I loved it!!! The workers are great, they love the children and really seem to love their job...The owner is great! She helps you with any kind of problems that seem to occur...she tries to solve them before they become worse...She is great with all of her employee's....If someone is looking for somewhere to keep their kids, this is the perfect place, trust them with your eyes closed!!! Keep up the good work!
Caring, friendly, and family like setting. Would recommend to anyone who is looking into daycares....development centers!
