My school is baby boot camp. Teacher is frequently on cell phone at back of room at drop off and this is in front of parents. What about when they are not present. I am reluctant to talk to her because you get the feeling you are interrupting her. Conformity is the key word here, e.g. worksheets for 2 and 3 year olds. No plants, pets, atrractions in the nursery. No communication about what is done daily or weekly. There have not been any reviews for years and this school/nursery shows 5 star rating even though facilities & equipment got an over all 2 stars, 3 stars for teacher quality and 2 stars for parent involvement. I understand why they got 2 stars for parent involvement. I feel that asking a question is frowned upon and treated with suspicion, such as: are the teachers certified? They never offered this information and I didn't want to rock the boat so I never asked. Classroom assistant is in hallway conversing with another employee every morning instead of in the classroom. Come September, my child will be elsewhere!

Great school! The teachers and administration are friendly and helpful. My daughter has attended since she was 2 1/2 yrs old and they even helped with potty training. She is now 4 and knows her whole alphabet and can even spell a few words. Highly recommended!!!!

I looked thoroughly at many, many preschools in South Philly & Center City (with no regard to price). This is the most loving group of teachers you'll ever find. The director is always conscious of how hard it is to leave our little ones, and she tries to say 'yes' to as many 'mommy' requests as she can--very comforting to me. So often, schools try to force kids into their routines instead of supporting our homes--City Kids doesn't do that. The school used to be a elementary school, so the classrooms are nice and big, with lots of space to play and crawl. (yes, it is old, too.) It has good tuition rates too.

My daughter is so comfortable there. I like the school because it has been around for many years and the school administrator has been there since the start. The teachers are friendly and they understand what the child needs. If you are looking for nursery thru kindergarden and haven't found anything you really like....you should check out City Kids. They have a very warm welcoming feeling.

My daughter has been attending this school for this school year and she loves it. She has learned so much in their 3 year old classroom. The staff is wonderful and the kids are all great.
