I moved my daughter to this school about a year ago, she is in the 3 year old class at the Kanis site. She has been very happy there and is very engaged in learning. The teachers are caring and thoughtful. My youngest started in the infant room in the fall and we have continued to be pleased with the care she is receiving. It is wonderful to have the extended hours to accomodate our work schedule. My only complaint is the lack of fresh fruit on the menu as well as the "kid food." They are often fed hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken nuggets as well as canned fruits and vegetables. These are not foods we offer at home and I wish they would offer more nutritious foods.
***GOOD EXPERIENCE GONE BAD*** I think we can all say as parents that all we want is to SIMPLY find a daycare center where we feel confident in the teachers & leadership of the business to take excellent care of our most precious possessions (our children) like they were one's own. I started my child at the center with the best intentions. Advangtages: I enjoyed that my child seemed to be learning in the 3yr old rm/ loved that some of the teachers had such genuine and warm spirits and loved the security with badges at entrance. Disadvantages: 1. "no child allowed in the center after 10am unles dctrs note"- that wasnt the prob..once i brought note was told child not allowed because the other kids are sleeping (my child isnt disruptive & came in a calm state) 2. "if visit child and the child cries must take child with you"....tell me are we dealing with trained soilders or young babies? why not on my lunch break can i visit with my child or enjoy lunch with them? 3. Director/ Asst Director- Unprofessional to the tee. Corporate needs to evalute closely who they put in leadership because parents see the directors as representation of the preschool.
Let me say that my oldest child went thru this program and was very prepared for elementary school. Acutally she was ahead academically, socially, and from a character perspective. However, I am starting to get concerned with the systematic lack of quality in the replacement teachers that are employed at Baptist right now compared the tenured, caring, above and beyond teachers this program once employed in every classroom. Is it just the Administrators fault? I don't think so. Is it Baptist Health not providing supporting funds to keep the quality of the program? Is it unfair expectations of us as parents towards teachers(pre-school and beyond)?
I have to agree with other reviews I've read about Baptist Health's preschool program. The daycare staff and administration are terribly unprofessional. Yes, they do their job and follow the rules. But that is all that they do. The staff does not take the time to go beyond the call of duty to give children and parents the value-added treatment they deserve as caregivers at Baptist Health Medical Center. It is sad that Little Rock does not have quality child care for those who work non traditional hours. If I can find an alternative, I will gladly make a change and encourage others to do so and speak up for better service where our children are concerned.
