My son has been here since he was 3 months old, we are moving away and sadly have to leave creme, The environment and facilities are wonderful. I do wish all the teachers were degreed but it doesn't change the fact that they still teach to a curriculum, teach independence and the kids are happy. In the nearly 4 years we have been here there is little turn over. Summer is always hectic and they hire some newbies in the summer to keep camp going. But overall high marks!
Continuation.... The gym? the teacher had no clue about what to do and was mad all the time (the assistant never did anything about the way children were being mistreated). I saw so many children crying w/o no teacher paying attention to them. I saw so many happy parents dropping their children w/o really knowing what happens there after they are dropped off. I just feel so sorry for all the children whose precious hours are spent there while their parents think they are OK. Trust me, they are not OK there, it is NOT a healthy environment for a child. Why? because the teachers who are hired seem to be there just to get paid and not because they like children at all, they don't have any patience and also because they just seem to treat children they way they were treated at home, sad situation... I know it is super hard to find a place in Houston with loving people to watch your children, but please ,don't let these people fool you, and don't let your children be there, they deserve better. I think even a in home nanny would be much much better. Stay there w your child at least 3 hours to see the real thing there, you will know exactly what I am talking about.
I enrolled my 2 year old son in downtown Houston Creme de la Creme and decided to withdraw him only after one month. The teacher in his class was not always there as she was filling up other absent teacher's places in other classrooms. I found that the assistant teachers were rude to the kids and showed absolutely no compassion when they cried. They have the method to leave kids cry alone until they finally give up. To me, the environment was not happy, specially when you have several unattended children crying in one room.
This is to the review underneath me, while I do agree that they need to spend there money wisely who are you to say they are just collecting a paycheck because in reality isn't everyone collecting a paycheck to survive. I have had my kid attend and do believe it is a great school compared to most, it prepares them above and beyond for preschool. The only problem is (which is why this person below I believe is complaining) is that there is some snooty parents who believe they should be catered to instead of their kid and it is simply annoying. Yes your money got you a great school for your kid but lets not forget it doesn't make you better than anyone!
The fact that parents have rated this school/kid factory 5 stars is crazy! I anticipate the convenience factor of being able to have your child ready at the front door with snacks in hand has clouded many parents perception of this school. The teacher turnover is unbelievable and they are no more than hourly workers collecting a paycheck. I think Creme de la Creme needs to re-evaluate where they spend their money-- maybe cut back on the fluff and get some real, caring teachers in there.
I had a big responsibility to choose my nephew s preschool ( as I am a professor) and my relative want me to find a good school for child education. I put my nephew in Cr me de la Cr me preschool. Their warm, comfortable and stimulating environment impressed me when i went there for his admission. They also provide opportunities to participate in several recreational activities; we have before & after school. educational programs embrace the development of the whole child: intellectual, social, emotional, & physical
We've been really happy with Cr me de la Cr me in Houston. My daughter went to the one in Cr me de la Cr me for approx 2.5 years. Pre-k in Houston offers a balance of fun, creative, hands-on activities as well as measurable venue of learning. They offer opportunities to develop coordination, balance, and agility at their Cr me in Houston preschool. Children 2 and up begin their day in their homeroom, where they're encouraged to select from a variety of supervised.
My son attends Cr me de la Cr me s Private Kindergarten program and loves it. Our view on childcare was changed forever when we walked through the front door of their Downtown Houston Centre. The facilities are very nice and the teachers are excellent. They ve designed programs to engage yr child across intellectual, emotional, physical & social levels. The days are fairly structured so that the children switch activities several times throughout the day. To nurture creativity of my child, they provide him a home like environment that is safe, comfortable, & loving. It is also a good value with ...
My son has amazingly improved a few months after I have enrolled him at Creme de la Creme. My husband and I are now planning to enroll our 14-month old daughter. I have high regards to the teachers who patiently teach my son and mold him to become better. This is absolutely a great school.
