very disappointed with preschool of america at the rego park location. It used to be a good school when my older child attended. Many of the good teachers have left. When I wanted to register my second child, they were discriminating against him. the staff at the front desk is very fake, unprofessional, and rude. the new director is unfair and does not treat every child equally. After observing my child, she first calls saying they have a spot, and then when we gave in the forms she says we have to observe him before we make a decision because he is a boy. I came in and my child did absolutely fine with the 2 year old group. She then says that I have to bring him in again for maybe another week before he is accepted because my child was sitting on my lap at times. Basically, she tried to pick on things to find an excuse. She said come in tomorrow with him and leave the room. I told her obviously he will cry he has to get used to the school he hasn't been at daycare before. I have referred many of my friends and this is not what they had to go through. Its a shame that there are people out there in this world who are very unfair and who discriminate.

We had very good experiences with the school and feel that our son had excellent teachers over the past two years, first with Ms Andrea and Ms June, and now with Ms Jheny and Ms Amy. I wish there was more time spent on Chinese, since the primary language of instruction is English, but they do have Chinese class every day. Red Apple offers a variety of electives such as Chess, Drawing, and Piano (at additional charge) and we have been very satisfied with the quality of the instructors for these optional classes as well. The front office staff has been very helpful and responsive when we have needed them, and the school is kept very clean. The other parents are nice, and everyone cares about the quality of education that their children are receiving. I wish that the school continued up through kindergarten and higher grades. The school has a small rooftop playground, and the children make frequent "field trips" around the neighboorhood to the library and other playgrounds when weather permits. All in all it has been a very positive experience and I would wholeheartedly recommend the Rego Park Red Apple to parents who want their children to be challenged with other bright kids

I'm giving this school two stars only because of several issues I've had with the staff . The teacher that my child had was very LAZY . she would NOT go the extra mile to help the kids who were a little behind or who weren't grasping the material as fast as the others. Parents were told that its their responsibility to make sure that their child is not behind and not the teacher's,and that the teacher is following the same protocol as public schools( but lets not forget that this is a PRIVATE daycare ) .There was no interaction with children during play time ( never saw her talk to kids besides when she was giving the lesson). My kid was afraid to go to her class because the teacher was always yelling at the kids. The food sucked , what 3 or 4 yr. old wants to eat tofu (just because this school has a lot of Asian kids does not mean that the menu should consist of fried rice or tofu) . Another issue that I've had was that the teachers would send kids to the bathroom by themselves, which I think is very dangerous if you ask me (slip and fall accidents could happen to anyone especially little kids)With all that said if you can afford to send your child to forest hills location,do it .
