Many of the teachers are rough and harsh in demeaner, voice and tone when dealing with the children. I often heard my child's teacher Ms. Tonya (not sure of spelling) screaming and yelling at the kids for inappropriate reasons like a child needing the restroom or asking a question. I understand children are stressfull and often need redirection, but the harshness and dare I say, ghetto quality of the yelling was worrisome. The kids were scared of her! When I reached out to the principal, she didn't take my concern seriously. She said she would talk to the teachers but she was sure that it was just a misunderstanding because Ms. Tonya had worked there for so long and was so wonderful. I explained that it was NOT a misunderstanding because I actually witnessed these incidents. I'm not sure if there was a language barrier or if she was just flat out unwilling to hear my concerns, because she just kept smiling and nodding awkwardly. Bottom line, the quality of the teachers is subpar. It wasn't just Ms. Tanya but the majority of the staff who are awful. If you're ok with trash for teachers then this may be the school for you. The one positive is that it is a nice and clean facility.
Hayat Children's Center is a wonderful preschool. The owners are one site every day at the front desk, and take personal interest in every student. The teachers have been there for years...there is very little turnover. The classrooms are bright and cheery. But what sold us when we first came there 2 years ago is that parents were stopping by to say hello to the owners years after their kids had left the preschool and gone on to elementary school. It really is a wonderful place.
