Columbia's Finest seemed like an organized, clean, and exciting new place for my child to learn, until a few weeks in. The staff is ALWAYS out of ratio, the staff changes from one minute to the next, and the attitude I received from the director is outrageous! This place is unprofessional, and has went down since January of 2014. I would NOT recommend this facility to any other parent or employee.
When I first toured this school, it seemed great with the security doors, Missouri Accreditation, and the healthy eating promotion. I was very disappointed when I noticed that the teacher to child ratios were not being met. My child was left with one teacher and WAY too many kids. Not to mention, getting bit regularly and picking her up with a dirty diaper on. I would NOT recommend this school. There is no parent communication and much confusion between parent-teacher. I am frustrated on a regular basis and have removed my child.
We had to leave...there are always waaay too many children with only one teacher, sometimes I picked up my kid to find out that there is a teacher in the room whom I have never met, and doesn't know which child belongs to me. My child has been bit several times, most of the time I wasn't even told about it, but noticed it at bath time in the evenings. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this place to anyone!
Quickly went down hill. It was great when we started taking our son there in 2012. Something happened in the last year. All the good staff left, and the dynamic changed all together. It went from being a school to being a place to drop kids off to be babysat. It just wasn't the place for us anymore.
