After School Care that is flexible and entertaining can be difficult to find. My children (grades 1 and 3) have brought home artwork, learned new games and made new friends. I do not expect that they will be as focused as they are in the classroom...in fact I am glad that they aren't - they play and use their imaginations. My two are only at the after school program two days a week and while I can't speak for the programs at the other schools, RBS seems to be in fine form.
New Morning School is all about and how one preschool has grown into 16+ programs. I have known Jess and Linda since I was 3 years old and their best interest is in the child. They refuse to cater to the politically correct misconception that children need not know when they have done something wrong. I believe in their philosophies as educators and hope they will continue running their programs with the same amount of conviction they did in 1987. LOVE to them always!
My son attended their after school program and through out his stint there we faced Many issues where he was unsupervised, injured and unsafe. There was no communication on what transpired, even after many conversations with the director, staff leader and school principal. They informed us their staff did not like children as if this was supposed to explain their inability to care correctly and that others had been spoken to repeatedly about their roughness though no results were evident. Our son was withdrawn after they couldn't find him one day. Safety should be a concern for any parent considering New Mornings after school on site care staff.
