Yes, Sweet Peas Village has great facilities, and is a very expensive school, but looks are deceiving. I enrolled my child at 6 weeks old and the teachers in the room were going against my requests for my child and doing what THEY wanted. My child was being given another child's pacifier even though I had provided one for him. They made the decision that he didn't like his blue one and started giving him another little girls pink one. When I expressed my concern I was given mixed stories and heard them disregarding and mocking my request for them not to continue with that behavior the second I left the room. When my child was 5 months old they admittedly (as well as recorded on my child's daily sheet) that they did not feed him his bottle between the hours of 9AM-2PM. When I confronted them again, the teacher raised her voice with me and walked away mid conversation. I complained to directors on multiple occasions and the teachers were let go with very minor warnings. I've been present at different times during the day and there is yelling from many teachers once parents have left. I suggest dropping by your child's room unexpectedly. They have ruined my view of daycares
As a parent and teacher I look for quality in facility, developmentally appropriate practices and a positive environment for my children. I have found all of this and more at Sweet Peas Village. My children love school and I love the sense of community that Sweet Peas provides. The staff creates positive learning experiences and guides the children to enjoy learning. This is truly a quality school with a team of educated teachers and administrators that hold to the high standards set by the owner.
Sweet Peas Village has a fabulous facility that leaves no detail unattained. The teachers are so educated and use developmentally appropriate practices everyday. I would not go anywhere else this school has it all. from the nurse, teachers, directors and volunteers. Everyone there just has the best interest of the children at hand. Thank you for being available to our family.
I agree with another comment posted on this forum it's perfect for the baby as the kids get older within the school less attention is paid. They have gotten too big to pay attention. For instance in my sons classroom there is a child that has biten 6 different students and 2 teachers and no discplinary action has been taken place at all. Child is still enrolled in the school. To add insult to injury there are times you pick up your child and no one even tells you (the parent) they were bit until you discover the bite mark yourself on your child. Owner and director Heather Mayo who is very well aware of this issue has done nothing to keep the children in the classroom safe. As the website says they create a safe environment?? Thats a joke! It's one of the priciest day cares in the state of RI. My experience in the beginning when I enrolled my baby (at 3 months) was fabulous never a complaint. Now it's just a big disappointment. Director needs to stop her constant personal travel and needs to really be at her school. Get back to basics.
Sweet Peas Village is a state of the art facility filled with an abundance of love and caring, which is what every parent is in search of as they embark upon the balancing act between raising a family and pursuing their career. The staff at SPV is always ready to lend a helping hand and the programs are designed to be fun as well as educational. There is always something happening at SPV and parent involvement is invited at every juncture. Whether it be granfriend day, Art Shows, Music recitals. They even take the guess work out of bag lunch as they provide a hot lunch as one of their newer options. I could go on and on but all you have to do is go for your own tour and you will both see it and feel it. It is the best place for anyones child to go.
Sweet Peas Village is one of the best child care facilities you could ask for. While pregnant with my son I interviewed 21 other child care providers, Sweet Pea being the first, and none could compare. I am fortunate to say my son has been there for 4 years and I thank them every day because of their care, consideration, dedication, and commitment to excellence. As an infant he was academically stimulated and loved when I could not be with him. To have piece of mind leaving the most precious thing in the world (your child) is priceless. Heather Mayo does everything to the highest standards and with unbelievable class. We are honored to part of such a school.
Sweet Peas is great however they have suffered from their success a little (this is a big school). We have felt ill treated at times. Considering this is one of the more expensive day care/ pre-school's around they should be more considerate to parents concerns about their children. When our child was an infant we felt confident he was in good, compassionate hands. Now that he is older we feel he is in good hands but not so compassionate which does make us feel a little uneasy at times.
Both girls since they were 4 months old. We love and highly recommend SPV and they're very capable and caring teachers.
Great school and the teachers are top notch!
We have 2 children in the school two years apart. We have tried three schools before this one and by far this is the best school. They continue to impress us daily with the environment they create for our children.
