New Morning School1

I have sent all 3 of my child to the after school program when it was run by the original New Mornings owners, Jess & Linda Shapiro, and my 4th son attended the after school program this year and it seems a lot has changed. Since they have sold their company to Linda Degler, the company has slowly gone downhill. My son complained that one of the young male staff members had walked up behind him and hit him in the back of the head. My son told me he had addressed this with another staff member, but I had not been informed of this situation! I wrote a letter to New Mornings, and never heard back!! I am not impressed with the professionalism. They should be hiring more qualified adults instead of teenagers who are still in high school! Needless to say, I will not be sending my last son here because of the lack of professionalism.
My children both attended preschool at the school in goffstown and they now attend one of their before/after school programs. I was always thrilled with the way things were run and how much my kids enjoyed going. They often got upset when we were up early enough to make the bus instead of going to the before care program. However, the original owners jess and Linda Shipiro have retired and sold the company. The new management has me concerned. Suddenly my kids are complaining that some of their requests are not being met. After speaking to one of the staff members I found out that the budget is tight. This was strange to me since there are now cell phones for every school! I also find my payments are not updated as regularly and my checks are not cleared until 3 weeks after I give them to the school.
Great school. My twins loved their first year at preschool thanks to the wonderful staff. I was more than comfortable leaving my children in their care. They have learned a lot! The teachers will be missed. Best wishes to all. Samantha, Jillian & Mom
My granddaughter absolutely loves New Morning. It is the best place to have a child spend their days. The staff that helps Briana learn and smile her day away is Ms. Muffie, Ms. Jo, Ms. Barb, and after her preschool hours are over she goes to the aftercare with Ms. Ellen and Ms. Alexis. Thank you New Morning for being the best any parent and grandparent can ever ask for!
