I completely agree with everything the previous posting says. This school seems like a nice place when you first look at it. However, once you spend time there and really get to know it, you'll soon find that the administration, in particular the director Ms. N, is a strange character I feel like the school only cares about making money as they often let children enroll at completely random points during the year. There is NO continuity at this school. They move the teachers around constantly which is extremely disruptive to the children and staff. The toys are so outdated, many things seem to be falling apart, the carpets are filthy, there are hardly any books there, and I purchased items because there was literally nothing at one point! Until recently, I was a teacher there, as I just decided that I've had enough. I loved the children and the parents, and they loved me, but I was very tired of the constant switching around, and often with only a days notice! That is neither fair, nor professional. I also felt like I clashed with the director a lot, and when she was away for 2 weeks, I felt like we could all breathe. I would not recommend this school to attend nor to work at.
This school seems great on the outside. However on the inside, the material the children are learning are not up to date. The director has had many complaints by parents and staff. She does not know how to talk to people. She has many sides of her and will only be nice to you to show a facade to new and old parents. She is old and her methods are too traditional and outdated. She takes offense to everything and anything especially if it's a remark made by parents or staff. In the past, she has fired the entire staff with the exception of a few teachers due to her own personal reasons and not due the effectiveness of those teachers. Those teachers were amazing, caring and the parents were shocked to see them go so quickly and all at once. She holds a personal vendetta against anyone who disagrees with her. If you can send your child to a different school, I suggest you do so. If not, good luck.
Focuses on Learning Through Play with both teacher and child initiated activities, music and movement, art, pre-writing skills, language, math, science, and a private outdoor yard. After School Program for 4-5 year olds available. Sibling discount as well.
THIS is making great efforts to update its curriculum, staff, website, facilities etc. Our children were very happy there and we're excited to see positive changes. Great program for preschoolers - especially those entering organized school for the first time.
