this school is amazing.... the teachers are amazing and my child comes home everyday with a smile on her face telling me how great her day was... I especially love the summer camp which ranges from the years of 5 to 12... the camp goes on amazing trips including splish splash, adventureland, and fire island... my child always has fun and I could not ask for anything more in a school
I enrolled my son and attended class with him for one hour, 3 weeks in a row to help acclimate him. Each time, I observed a less than enthusiastic staff, barking orders at the children ('get back to your center') rather than participating with them. One staff member even ate a bagel and drank coffee while on 'duty'. Although the director and assistant director were receptive to my concerns, I didn't feel the school and/or teachers were truly engaged or interested in the educational aspect of the program. It felt more like a babysitting experience to me.
