When children are young with limited vocabulary you can only have faith in God that while you are working your child is being treated with love Don t just drop your child off at daycare every day without Sitting The Baby Sitter Make time and ask to view tapes at least once or twice a month of your childs class !!! Ask your child how their day went everyday!!! Drop in unexpected to visit with your child!!! There are certain things that toddlers just don t make up .
Here are some important facts related to the issue driving this comment. Thealleged accusation was self-reported to the Department of Social Services and to Child Protective Services by the owner of Mighty Minds, Little Hands International Preschool . Both agencies conducted a thorough investigation and concluded that the complaint was not founded, and the case has been closed. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 434-975-4263.
turnover in staff was one clue that this was not the place I wanted my child to be while I worked. Despite the owner's seeming interest in parents' concerns, I quickly realized that this school is just another one her business opportunities. if you want staff with some training in early childhood development, this is not the place. Once your child is old enough to tell you what really happens here behind the closed doors, it will be too late. Keep looking.... there are other day cares in Charlottesville.
This is an exceptional daycare/preschool with an open door policy to parents at all times. Our children attended MMLH for 1.5 years and we were all very happy there. Our children received excellent care and a terrific education in English and Spanish. The teachers are caring, skilled, energetic, nurturing, and insightful. The administration is helpful, receptive to concerns and set the tone for a positive and appreciative environment. In addition to the daily reports from class, we met semi-annually with our teachers to discuss our children's developmental progress and were provided with skill assessment sheets we could pass on to our Pediatrician. We felt lucky to have found such a wonderful environment for our children.
Our 6-month-old started at MMLH several months ago. Miss Heather in the administration has always been extremely helpful, and since I go to breastfeed my baby everyday at lunch on my lunchbreak, I get a window into the care that is given in the classrooms, which is top-notch. The teachers all know my child by name, and they all lavish attention on every child in the classroom - no one gets left out. I feel lucky to have found such a wonderful environment for my child.
Our infant started at Mighty Minds several months ago. So far we've been very happy with the quality of care. The teachers are very loving and caring. The Spanish language program is wonderful and they don't charge extra for it like other schools in the area. Our child always seems happy to arrive in the mornings.
Our preschooler has attended MMLH for nearly a year and we are very happy there! They provide lots of creative art projects, reading readiness skills (our 3 year old can identify all upper and lowercase letters and most letter sounds), and leadership skill building. Our child loves the teachers who are loving, active, and energetic.
Although the teachers at MMLH are great, I find it strange that new employees are regularly placed in the classroom without any word given by the director to the parents before hand. Other than that, we are happy.
Although the caregivers at MMLH are good, our experience with the administration was not so good. Altogether the information that we were given was inconsistent and we felt that it was not dealt with in a reasonable manner
