I love BC Crossroads Preschool and will be attending this school for the third year in a row. This year I will be attending with my second child and he is so excited to go to his big brother's preschool. The sense of independence and creative thinking fostered at this school is what really makes it special. By the end of his second year my first son was able to design and complete his own projects. I was at the preschool the same year that the previous review was written and I have a different perspective than the other reviewer. The child in the review had challenges getting along with other children, adults, and the teachers in the classroom. For a period of time the family was required to have a parent present on the premises in order to help him control himself. I actually thought about leaving the co-op during this period because of the challenges it presented by having this student in the classroom, and I am sure I am not the only one. I am very glad I continued with this school because my son has thrived in this co-op environment since the other student has been gone.

Extremely disappointing! There are many reasons the enrollment is way down and they are desperate to cover up rather than address the fundamental problems. We were very disappointed when we were told by other parents that our son was being bullied by one of the PARENT. When we wanted to address this issue with Gayne we were told the person the person in question wasn't coming back next year (she found a different school she liked better) and we should just let it go and not make an issue). She was very unprofessional and yet leads the parent classes, a bit of an oxymoron. She was accusatory toward the child and parents rather than have a mature dialogue to address and fix the situation. It seems like an attractive school from a tuition standpoint but with this school you absolutely get what you pay for unfortunately. It may be a good school if they stood behind their "philosophy" but unfortunately it doesn't seem they've read it in a number of years.

We go 3 times a week here - to the mixed class, the pre k class and the enrichment class. I love that there wasn't a waiting list to get in and that the 3-5's get the experience of playing with each other. Because we go 3 times a week, I work 3 days a month. I also have another job around the preschool that can be up to 2 hours a month, and attend a parent ed class for 2 hours. We use the sibling care on site, which means I also take a turn working there once a month or so. My kids love the freedom to chose the activities that suit them best and I love that they get to play outside on the playground nearly everyday. While it looks unstructured, Maura makes a point to work with every child and there is a 20 minute circle time with songs, stories and sharing. Maura works to build independence, social and critical thinking skills in the way disputes are handled and the way kids tackle tasks. I enjoy learning from her while I work. Most of all my children adore her.

I currently have my third child attending this program. We are enrolled for next fall as well, making it our sixth year at the Crossroads Co-op. I cannot say enough good things about this program. The preschool teacher Maura and the parent educator Gayne are both highly educated, and each have been with the school for over a decade. These women are devoted to the children they work with and they have made a difference in the lives of our family in a lasting way. Crossroads is a great place to participate in your childs early learning education in meaningful way while creating a community for yourself as well. You owe it to yourself and your child to go in a take a look at the facility and meet the teachers and families of Crossroads Co-op.
