The schools d cor is faded, the carpet, wallpaper, and toys are worn out and tuition is not reinvested into the facility or the teachers. This is a business; their idea of taking care of your child is to make sure they have the DHR required number of teachers watching the kids. The director seems nice but is not able to make decisions without the owner s approval. The program director/front office person (owner s daughter) is defensive and condescending when asked a question, when I asked for more information about the curriculum used she told me to look at their website for more information . My child was pushed into a toddler room at 9 months old (before crawling) and left there till he was 2 years old. Despite the fact that we signed up (and paid the annual registration fee of $150) for Early Preschool my child was never moved up to EP due to over enrollment. The turnover rate is terrible; in a matter of 8 months my child had 5 different teachers and too many co-teachers/floaters to keep track. New rules in the name of better accreditation pushed out older teachers and conflicts with the program director pushed out other teachers. Try Madison Premier or Primrose.

We have not enrolled our son yet but loved the tour and the director. The director has been extremely responsive and my husband and I thought the facility was he most secure we have seen. They do need to update their website.

Wow!! I am glad I am not the only one who feels this way. I have to agree with previous parents on many different aspects. First, the teachers are okay. Well the ones I have dealt with; although, they advertise and make it a great point to mention that every classroom has an actual degreed teacher. My child has been in two classes and not had an actual degreed teacher yet; their info is very misleading. Other than the teachers, everything is downhill from their. They hosted a trikathon for St. Jude several weeks ago.. it was very contradictory. They sent out info on bike safety; although, the majority of the kids were not wearing any kind of safety equipment. It was very dangerous, I was there and can say that from personal experience. I was told on private property they don't have to wear helmets. The building is in bad condition, the playground equipment (which is mainly indoor equipment placed outside) is falling apart, and even though they are one of the highest priced daycares the teachers still have to ask parents for supplies. While I cannot say for sure, the front staff is not the most honest and upfront either as compared to the teachers. I recommend choosing elsewhere.

My first child was enrolled at Premier CRP in early 2009. My second child was enrolled there in late 2011. The first few years, we were very pleased with our experience, but lately we've become concerned. While fees have gone up, there does not appear to be much reinvestment in the facility. Class sizes have increased, broken toys are not replaced, broken equipment is not repaired, and the playground needs new equipment. The annual increase in our fees is not reflected in the condition of the building or in the number of teachers available. Wherever the profit is going, it doesn t appear to be here. I am very concerned about the high turn-over of the last two years. I do not feel that the owner or director treat the teachers very well. The director does not appear to involve the teachers in decisions about classroom changes. When a teacher leaves, the announcement is made over email on their very last day, giving the parents little to no warning. Communications from the owner are often abrasive or hostile in nature. Overall, although our experiences with the teaching staff have been positive, I don t know that I would enroll my children at this facility if I were to visit today.
