This is a great school. My daughter began at about 18 months of age and now is 3. The teachers are very caring. They offer a large variety of activities, indoor and outdoor. We noticed an immediate improvement in our daughter's learning after starting Woodcrest. Our daughter became physically disabled in early summer and the school has been very accommodating, and the staff has been absolutely wonderful.
I have been a teacher for more than 20 years, with a BA and MS in early childhood education and development. I have the pleasure of frequently working as a substitute teacher at Woodcrest Preschool. Everyone who works at Woodcrest cares deeply about the welfare of the children, and they are all very good at their jobs.
I would like to respond to an earlier review. I am the Director at this school and take A LOT of pride in our program. The majority of teachers that work here have been teaching here for more than 10 years. I think that says a lot. If they were unhappy and unappreciated like one of the reviews say, I don't think they would stay this long. Our teachers receive the break times recommended by NAEYC so they do not feel over worked and I have an open office policy for them to tell me if they feel stressed. The teachers are also encouraged to attend workshops which help them with classroom management. Working with very young children is not an easy job but we teach this age because we hold a special place in our hearts for them. It takes a lot of patience and tools of the trade to teach this age. This being said teachers have lives outside of school and sometimes that effects how they are feeling. The review also mentioned a child crying and as we try really hard to engage with every child and help them facilitate friendships sometimes they do cry and it may be a time when we are busy with something else but we continue to try our best. I have great teachers, keep up the great work
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.
