My child has attended Sweet Peas Village for the past 3 years. Although our family had nothing but wonderful things to say for the first two years, inconsistencies in staffing, procedures, expectations and standards are now significantly evident. As stated in previous reviews, teacher turnover is high. Quality staff does not stay for long, and many of the new hires do not have reputable childcare experience. Boys and girls use the bathrooms at the same time, cubbies are crowded and shared, and cleanliness standards are not uniform. Although some classrooms send home curriculum calendars on a monthly basis, the standard to which these calendars are completed and followed is incredibly inconsistent. Daily reports to families are inconsistently and minimally completed. We often worry about the level of proper supervision being provided. It feels as though our child is simply babysat here, instead of educated and engaged. Although we have only had positive experiences with the administration, many families do not feel they are helpful or professional. Sadly, the care and dedication that was once the hallmark of Sweet Peas is gone.

After having my childern attend the school for 3 years, and then recently pulling them out, I can say with utmost certainity that this facility is not what it used to be. Tuition is very high, yet the curriculum is seriously lacking. The teachers seem unhappy, turnover is rampant and the owner is rarely visible. When I expressed my concerns, I was made to feel as if I was wrong and somehow an incompetent parent. Two years ago I would've recommended this place to anyone, now I would not and it saddens me to say this.

I would not recommend sending your child here as they have high teacher turnover. Many of the teachers are great, but many are very new and untrained.

My daughter is enrolled in the infant room at Sweet Peas. We are constantly impressed with the level of care, the classroom's cleanliness, the thoughtful projects and communication from the teachers. We could not be happier!
