The comment below mine is a joke. Teachers and directors are more focused on gossiping about one another (and especially parents) than they are taking care of the children. They claim to be NAEYC accredited, however I can guarantee you if NAEYC were to come in and do a random check-up today, they would fail miserably. Classrooms are currently not being kept up to NAEYC standards. The director is by far the most unprofessional woman I have ever met. I was standing in the hallway signing out my child from school one day when I realized I was overhearing the director discussing the financial situation of another parent with a teacher! I constantly saw the teachers and director using their cell phones when they should have been focusing on the children. My son no longer goes to this school due to the unprofessionalism of the staff.
Pros: Great professional teachers and director (especially Mrs. Karl and Mrs. Calfa), enrichment: Spanish, Hebrew and Signs languages, flexible hours up to 7:00 - 6:00 5 times a week, kosher snacks, Multiple Intelligence Theory (which allow kids to learn more efficiently and I can see it), NAEYC accredited, parent involvement (the doors are always open for parents), field trips (as: fire station, police station, library, discovery children's museum, park, amusement park, etc.). Wonderful summer camp. Highly recommended.
Do not place you child in this school! You'll be lucky if your teacher makes it through the entire year without quitting or getting fired.
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.
