At first glance, the school seemed great, but after I enrolled my child, I started to notice certain things that concerned me as a parent. For example, the classrooms are way too crowded, which puts stress on the teachers. The teachers seem tired and unappreciated. While walking to my son's classroom, I passed the director, who said hello to me. When I was in the classroom, I actually saw my son's teacher crying. Not sure if the director had been talking to her before I entered the room or not. A day prior to seeing this teacher crying, I went to pick up my son and found him crying because no one was playing with him. I really liked this teacher and so did my son. I do not blame the teacher for not noticing my son. I blame the director for allowing so many children in one room. The playground is very simple. My son's class plays with the kindergartens during outside time. The kindergartens seem too big to even play on the play structure. There seems to be too many children, with too many different age groups on the playground as well. Overall, the teachers are great, but because of over crowded classrooms and unappreciated staff, I have pulled my child out of this school.

I visited the school and was not impressed. For snack, they give each child a handful of fruit loops thrown directly on top of the table. The teacher in the 2-3 year old class does not seems happy to be there. The class size (20+) is too big and is too chaotic. The infant program seems well run.

My children love going to preschool everyday. On the weekends they are sad because we aren't heading there to plat. I feel my children are allowed to express their individuality at Woodcrest and I love that.

This is a decent school, the only reason I put my kid in this one over others though was that it is one of the few schools around that have an infant program and price/location played a big role too. Even though it is expensive, it is not as expensive as some others in the area. As my child has gotten older and gone through a few of the classes, I must say they currently have far too many kids (24) in the 2 year old room for only 2 teachers. There is currently a 'replacement' teacher in the 2 yr old room who has a very harsh tone with the children all the time (seems overwhelmed with the 2 yr olds). When I have walked through I see kids just pummeling each other and the teachers don't really pay attention. Overall, it is an okay school. The kids are learning. **what would make it BETTER though: The school could definitely be a little CLEANER. And most importantly, instead of constantly trying to get new enrollments, they really should focus on hiring a few more teachers that are good with children lowering the teacher:child ratio (especially in the infant-3yr old programs) and thus giving more individual attention to the children which is so desperately needed there!
