Hi Erica, I wanted to respond to your review as the new Head of School at Terra Verde. I apologize for your negative experience during the 2013 kindergarten playdate. We are so thrilled that your daughters are performing extremely well within the public school environment. At Terra Verde we limit our class sizes to 16 students in the lower school. The admissions process is the most difficult task for our staff as we wish we could take all families who sign up for the school. Please take into consideration that we often receive double the amount of applications than spots available and it becomes extremely difficult to accurately assess each child's skill set when visiting campus for a day. Given your story regarding your daughters successes, it seems that you have been wonderful parents who allow them to fully blossom in the public school environment. We commend you for being so vested in their education and wish you nothing but the best in the future. Sincerely, Eric Snyder
My child attends St. Joseph's ECDC and I could not be happier. All the staff is super caring and amazing. My child is constantly talking about how she loves her teachers and class. They start introducing spanish at 18 months and they have a great teaching enviornment. They dont force the material on the children but instead integrate it into fun activities and they also encourage the children's creative side. I would recommend this school to anyone. The only bad side is that there is a constant wait list to get in because it is such a highly rated school.
It may look from the out side, and a little inside, a little old and maybe even dirty but trust me it's not. Yes, it's a little old but it is not; dirty they take every step to make sure the room and toys are clean. They care about the kids and their needs and will tell you if they think there may be a problem somewhere. My kids go there and to them it is their second home. I have been to some very crappy child care places before I found this good one. The teachers are nice and consistant with the kids. I would recomend this one to anyone.
