I am currently on a few waiting lists so I can take my child out of this daycare. They do not communicate and they do not listen to the things you tell them to do in regards to the needs of your child. The director is no help which is sad. My baby is way too young to be somewhere that has incompetent ppl. There are so many things wrong with this place that I just don't have the time to write and mention. Though I know it will help others out. Maybe I'll write a more thorough review of what I've experienced with this place at a later date. Sorry. I do not recommend this daycare honestly.

They have a huge problem with lack of communication. They have closed several times w/ no/short notice on non-holidays leaving parents scrambling for care & paying twice - once to Haynes and again for emergency care. The only notice they might provide is a small notice on the wall among a lot of other postings. They have a monthly newsletter that comes out 14 days into the month but other than that, they do not provide timely information to parents. They will not provide any kind of regular feedback regarding how your child is doing or how your child is progressing, even though parents have requested it. Your child may learn a little when he moves to an older class but he stagnates during the school year because younger children are moved into his class & the class goes back to the material for the younger children. The drop ins/before & aftercare take their numbers to more than they can handle. They have children of all ages - 2 through school age - mixing together in a chaotic environment with minimal supervision or in the evenings they may be watching TV on a screen the size of a 20 inch computer screen. Some classes share a room separated by a few blocks.

I currently have a Pre K child enrolled at LPELC and I am more than satisfied with this school. My daughter has been with LPELC for two years and she has learned so much. The school is clean, the teachers are friendly, the director is very knowledgable, and I love their curriculum. I am so excited to see what else my daughter will learn this year and to see this school continue to grow.

I should have done this review a few years ago but decided not to. I can t believe this place is still open for business. I sent my daughter here when she was about 13mos.The owner appeared to be very nice and professional; the teacher for the toddlers always had an attitude in the morning. My daughter s teachers were nice and friendly but this place was very unorganized; and over the weeks we realized that they weren t that clean. Within about 4 days of starting there my daughter broke out with a major skin flare up that I ve never seen before (Eczema). We would often come home with other kid s blankets or clothes because the staff would get things mixed up. I mean how hard is it to just use the stuff in the box or bag that is clearly marked with the child s name on it? Anyway, the final draw was when we went to pick her up and she had ANOTHER child s pacifier in her mouth! She lasted there about a month if that long.
