PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU LOVE YOUR KID!! What a mistake!!! The biggest mistake of my life. Don't get fooled by the looks of the school or the fact that you are allowed to watch your kid through the school's viewing booths. THE KIDS ARE TREATED VERY POORLY WHEN YOU ARE NOT WATCHING! I saw an change in my son that first week of school. His enthusiasm for school was gone. My son would cry in the car on the way home from school almost every day. I complained to the owner about the teachers. The owner told me to ignore my kid's unhappiness and unwillingness to continue attending the school. She said that the problem was my kid, not her school. Then why is he doing so great at his new school? THE FIRST RED FLAG SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE CONTRACT THEY MADE ME SIGN AT REGISTRATION. They know that you will soon be unhappy, but tied to a very expensive contract. What a place!! Visit the school anytime and you will find the owner barefoot all over the school. That's how unprofessional she is. THIS SCHOOL IS THE WORSE KIND.Treating children poorly while they're cashing in every month. STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL if you care about your kids!
Where do I start? This school was practically detrimental to my son's development. The teachers lack empathy are not very well educated. I highly doubt they have any type of degree or teachers certificate. If all you want is a decent curriculum but don't care if your child is treated poorly then this is the school for you. The teachers show favoritism to one or two kids in each class. If your child has a any developmental delays then do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY! The are not educated and have no idea how to handle even a child with mild speech delays. I am glad that I took my child out of this school before any more damage was done.
Excellent Academic Preschool We were looking for the best preschool for our little son. DPK was referred to us by teachers at American Heritage, a nearby private school for older children. We were not looking for a daycare but something which could stimulate his mind and teach him. After touring 6 preschools we picked DPK. DPK was initially a long commute for us and there are some parents which commute long distances with their kids because of its academic excellence. A lot of thought has gone into the school layout: from the enclosed playground to separate classrooms for activities. Our little one gets exposure to a great variety of topics, some of which he develops an intense interest in. He also learns to play with others, be polite, to express himself, and discipline. The little guy has been attending DPK since shortly before 2 years old (started at summer camp). At parties and events he is noticeably better behaved and more social than the older kids of co-workers who have attended other schools. Would highly recommend DPK to parents looking for the best in academic preschools and who hope to get their little ones into some of the more elite private high schools.
This has to be one of the most fantastic schools ever! I didn't have a problem with the owner and couldn't have loved the teachers more. The office staff was wonderful with helping me with everything when it came to registering my son and the owner helped me to find the best OT when I felt my son needed the extra help! The teacher are simply the best at what they do. The love they have for the children not only in their classes but for all of them in the school is something you can't just find every where. Nothing beats walking into your child's school and being greeted by everyone with a smile and a beyond friendly good morning. I couldn't have been happier with my time spent at this school. I love to recommend this school to my friends and family because I am positive that they will have the best experience as I did. Keep up the good work everyone! You are doing great with our children!
