We have two children enrolled at Compass and have had a very positive experience. Administrators know us and our children, show an interest in creating a wholesome environment for learning, and are very responsive to questions. Teachers have been first-rate, patient and fair, enthusiastic about our kids and always willing to go the extra mile to assist in their development. Contact with parents is amazing -- daily emails with photos of the day's events, extensive documentation of artwork, studies, etc., questions of the day and longer-term projects -- impressive execution of the Reggio philosophy the school is known for. Facilities are good and attention to safety is impressive; during a recent scare in town many Powell schools were put on lockdown, as was Compass, as a precaution. During this few hours period we received both emails and phone calls from both a teacher and an administrator letting us know the situation; all was handled very professionally. Compass is not cheap, but no good preschool is. We are very happy with our decision to send our kids there and feel they're getting a great head start on their education.
I absolutely love the Compass school! My son has been going there since he was 4 months old. His teachers are so amazing and do a great job working on all elements of development. I feel like they go above and beyond on a daily bases. For example, I receive daily e-mails about what my son is doing along with pictures. I can t say enough good things about this wonderful daycare!!!! I feel like they are my second family!!
My kid has been going to the preschool in Compass for the past one year. I found the old management very good. The new staff are disorganized and inefficient. Some of the teachers are very good and care a lot for the kids. You have to be lucky to get the right teacher. Luckily my kids had a very nice teacher and they had an amazing learning experience. As long as your child has a good teacher- Compass will work well for you.
I have 2 children at the compass school and they are now in preschool and have been there since they were 4 months old. I have to agree that the previous director and administrative staff was not receptive or open. The new director and administrative staff have been nothing short of amazing! We debated pulling our children out of the compass school previously because of their unwillingness to work through issues of biting and telling us that our children were experiencing developmental delays and should be tested (what a nightmare to hear that!). Anyway, we had our children tested and they were exactly where they needed to be! I feel the teachers and administrative staff now in place truly love all of the children and have a zest for learning and sharing with the children. I would recommend compass to other parents.
