October 13, 2013 I am delighted about my children attending Primrose School of Kelliwood. Since they have been here, I noticed immediately how they are progressing academically as well as socially. In addition to that I appreciate the well balanced meals and snacks they are offered daily. I can go to work knowing that my children are in a safe, well managed environment. Ms. A. Bailey
My experience with Primrose School of Kelliwood is that it prepares your kid to succeed. I see others saying that their kids got kicked out because they did not want to deal with them when they misbehaved. Do you think the rest of the kids/staff should have to use all their time on your bad kids? Not hardly. I will tell you a true story. While I was in the school, a misbehaving child was in the director's office for a time out for hitting another child. After being sent back to class, this bad kid was back in the office for biting another child. Then back a 3rd time for putting mud on others outside. Finally, for dumping a full bowl of cereal and milk on a girls head. When the parents showed up to remove this child, the dad said "You're just giving him what he wants" (not to be in school). The staff explained that the bad child interrupted the entire class and Primrose could not punish the rest of the kids by letting this continue. This was NOT this kids first discipline at the school. Now you tell me if this is a case of bad parenting, dumping an unruly kid on the daycare center. WAKE UP, NO childcare center wants these kids because their parents are irresponsible.
I write this as a parent with a child that hasn't been thrown out of the school. My own view on the discipline structure is it great. I don't need my child's formative experience of school to be disrupted by kids that have their bad behavior ignored or tolerated by their parents. Having seen the way some of these kids behave at parties, and the way the parents just ignore it while their kid is misbehaving, I'm not surprised that some of them have been asked to not come back. There is a responsibility on the parent here too. Yes, I think the notice given to parents is on the severe side - I don't think that does anyone favors. Unfortunately, it was all too easy to predict which kids would be the ones to be asked to leave based on the behavior you could watch at parties - I'm talking not knowing how to share, taking toys from other kids, pushing, hitting, things like that. You can either take the view that it is kids being kids or that they should know the basics of right and wrong. I take the latter view, some take the former. If I am paying for private tuition, I personally don't want all the teachers' time taken up by dealing with kids whose parents believe in the former.
My daughter has attended this school for the past 2 years. It was her first ever school experience. She loves going to school every day. I get regular notes home about her progress and weekly updates of what the class is doing. My daughter struggled to adjust to new teachers and not having mom around and the staff could not have been more helpful. They came up with new ways of helping her adjust and she now skips into school. Regarding some of the other reviews, for me, it's a positive that disruptive pupils are dealt with.
