La Petite Academy #74701

I sent my son to La Petite for two months before I couldn't take it anymore and got him out. The teachers were just aloof babysitters. Every day when I dropped off and picked up my son, a bunch of kids had runny noses the teachers didn't wipe (it was dried onto their skin, it was left on so long). My son bawled and grabbed my legs every day when I dropped him off he hated it there. The school allowed a known aggressive child to remain in the classroom. One day, that boy was able to bite my son *5 times* before a teacher finally intervened. The school itself is very cramped and poorly laid out. It s just disgusting overall. I moved my son over to Pal-A-Roo's, where I can watch him all day long from my computer. These two schools are night and day. My son loves it at Pal-A-Roo s, and every day I'm grateful he's there instead of at La Petite.
This childcare center did not feel secure - it had a single entrance and no biometrics or other type of system to ensure check in/out. It did not offer a secure webcam so that I can safely checkin on my children during the day. I am not sure that there were adequate teachers there for the number of little ones the second time I dropped by, without an appoinment, so this will not be my choice of schools.
