Our son was born premature and we had to keep him away from germs and other kids until he was two years old. We were just looking for a place to socialize him once he had overcome most obstacles. We wanted a clean, low teacher:student ratio and were disappointed in most places we saw. Shenker was the only school that met our needs. Three years later, our son goes three full days, we're keeping him here for kindergarten, and our daughter (2) is going there as well. All our friends who have brought there kids here based on our recommendation are so grateful. None of my other friends whose kids go to other schools have the results Shenker gives our kids. It's the best school for professionalism, cleanliness, small numbers, and overall positive environment.
Both of my children went to Shenker Academy and we were very pleased with the school. The administration is also very helpful. It all comes down to the teacher being a good fit for your child at any school. Thank you Shenker Academy.
My son attended the Shenker Academy for 2 years and we eventually sent him to another school because of the horrible treatment of the teachers. The teachers barely made minimum wage and did not receive health insurance. Because they literally couldn't afford to miss work they would come to work ill, possibly passing on their sickness to the children. I also saw the student/teacher ratio go over what was advertised numerous times. I think the real bottom line at this school is to make as much money as possible and the children come second, the employees seemed to come last.
I am enrolling my children for a second full year at Shenker. I am amazed at the negative review below. There is nothing that has not been addressed when my husband and I grilled the administration and the teachers with regards to caring for my children. I have been pleased with the amazing amount of resources this school has to educate our children in a loving, engaging and creative environment. On top of that the safety and cleanliness of this FULL DAY pre-school surpasses every other early childhood center I visited. I saw them all!. I believe that wherever we send our children we need to find a way to communicate our needs and concerns on a regular basis while demanding that attention is paid to our family's NEEDS. The administration has never made me feel that my questions and concerns were an annoyance and they were NEVER unable to accommodate my family. I absolutely love this school. I am from the east coast where a waiting list is the norm for pre school. A school such as this would have a year long list in any other major city. I thank my stars that las vegas is lucky enough to have the teachers, board of directors, admin and lovely students for my family to enjoy!
