Beaver Creek is run like a for-profit business as opposed to the learning institution they are suposed to be. I participate regularly in their fundraisers, chaperone field trips, and volunteer regularly to bring in the most expensive item for my child's classroom parties (usually a frequently requested veggie platter). Since my child's enrollment in August 2010, I was late ONE TIME in picking him up from their chaotic and disorganized aftercare program by seven minutes due to traffic this week. They had the nerve to charge me $1.00 for each minute that I was late. They never consider extenuating circumstances. I paid but will no longer contribute to any of their fundraisers, as I feel they are unforgiving and undeserving of any extra money from me. They are having an upcoming teacher appreciation luncheon and expect the parents to pick up the tab. The teachers are employees of Beaver Creek so Beaver Creek should pay for the luncheon. I will give my child's teacher a small gift of appreciation but refuse to give this "school" any additional money. The director is extremely inflexible and rigid; she won't even consider having a PTA. I can't wait until the school year ends.
My daughter has attended Beaver Creek for two years and I have to say they are awesome. Every morning we a greated with a welcoming smile by her teachers at drop off. Her teacher always post what they did that day. Small homework assignments are given once or twice a week to review what they are learning. My daughter loves the homework! Every Monday they have music day and a wonderful lady (Ms. Sippy) comes in and they play instruments and sing songs. Friday is show and tell, again my daughter loves it! I couldn't be happier with Beaver Creek! In regards to the payment policy someone metioned, you have the option to pay monthly. I have always done it that way, in fact in the information packet they give you at the beginning of the school year there is even a schedule of payment amounts broken down weekly or monthly. As far as the late fee is concerned, any bill you pay will reflect late fees if you are late. Jenny S
Even though the parking to pick up and drop off is difficult, the front office is courteous and attentative, and even most of the teachers are pleasant. Unfortunately for our family, two bad apples spoiled the whole bunch. Our experience with my son's teachers, was not a very positive one. They were uncooperative, uncommunative, and never greeted us with a smile. They were very aggressive towards my child, and we were even told by other teachers, they yelled at him and called him names. I wish I had a better experience to share, and hope these types of posts are few and far between.
My younger daughter went to Beaver Creek fro two years. The first year I was fine but the second one I didn't like it at all. They change teachers and when I left my daughter for after care, they put the Tv for her for 2 hours. She didn't like it so I didn't leave her there again. The teachers they have now don't communicate with the parents at all. Very dissapointent. Fabiola LeBarron
