I have formally worked at the Richmond Elementary school l My very sick, disabled Son, graduated from their elementary school in the gifted status. I attended Catholic school my whole life..until CollegeRichmon is. a imperfectly uncrowded and top of the line Elementary schools in this 19134 zip Im code. Personally I don't know what that status is up against parochial schools, any Redder b But I have had experience with the charter schools..wow can they lie. I'm going to tell you quickly how to ensure that your child does fabulously in Richmond Elementary.. YOU AS A PARENT..BE PRESENT! Be familiar, and be known! VOLUNTEER FOR EVERYTHING! Enjoy your child's elementary years, be a part of it. If you can't.perhaps grandma or even aunt "Emily" , can stand in for you! Be a trip mom..your needed. You'll receive love from helpless kids whose parents are never there. Consider a Part time job, with the School Board. It's great to say that you work for the Philadelphia school board! Its a status that is not. to shabby! :-) . Talk to your child's principle! Hand him a letter of your offer to help, emphasis, your ability to handle kids in a crowd. Also , tell him in the letter how eager you are to be involved in all of. your your kids field trips! & seasonal parties, cupcake mom's( my son had severe food allergies/ Anaphylactic. reactions!! In a strange coincidence my principle had. a son a little older than mine 1 in 10, 000 chance as did we, to have such terrible terrifying life threatening food allergies ) My son Shane's principle in my case was absolutely thrilled at having me around taking 97% of the headache that comes with a sick kid in your school. Many life skills are valuable in the district. But , first of all... if you are able to take a f/p time job with the School District of Philadelphia...Talk to the principle and no one else...the positions can tend to be cut throat, so If you get onanyone's , as well as everyone's good side lol ! Make sure it's the PRINCIPLE OF YOUR SCHOOL. 70% of most schools depends on the involvemen of the parents, grand parents, guardians etc . BE THE ADVOTE FOR YOUR CHILD,! Make sure that everyone knows who you are! :-) In fact once they know that you are present You alone can be the difference between a positive and successful experience, or a total washout your kids barely have a chance...if your involvement in the child's education is to get them on the bus..JUST HONESTLY , REMEMBER..IN LIFE ...CONSIDER YOUR SELF BLESSED..IF YOU GET 30% back on the 100% you've invested. My solemn advice to getting the most out of , and the survival of your experience with the dreaded Richmond School would be to" MAKING YOURSELF PRESENT AND KNOWN" be that loud mouth , force of nature where itll be utilized in the best possible way..

I've been sending my daughter here since she was 11 months old. She spent 2 months in the infant room, which she loved despite my initially thinking it was a bit small. She'd cry in the morning when I dropped her off (typical), but when I spied on her before picking her up, she was always laughing, running around, and playing with her friends. She is now in the young toddler class & is transitioning quite well. She's now exposed to the "big" kids & is getting to do more fun activities. I agree with some previous reviews in that it can be quite difficult getting information from King's Kids. The office manager is a sweet lady, but often times my phone calls don't get answered in a timely manner & that can be frustrating. My best advice is to visit the center & forego the phone conversation. Ms. Hall, the director, is wonderful! The teachers at the center truly care for the kids & the kids adore them. Please note that kids >2 years are required to be uniform during the school year. There are strict rules & penalties regarding late drop-offs, late pick-ups, being out of uniform, late tuition, etc. However, these are fair & I've never had an issue meeting these rules. If you give the center notice, you have 2 weeks of vacation that you do need to pay.
Little Wonders Day Care Center is a wonderful place for your little ones. I am a parent of a 9 year old who attended from the age of 18 months upto and including Kindergarten. My son is an A student, on the Honor roll and his class persident. The skils that Little Wonders gave to my son are those of dedication and love of learning. My 2 year old has just began attending Little Wonders one month ago. Whiting days she knew colors, letters, numbers, shapes, songs and poems. I always knew she was very smart, but it is the dedicated, educated teachers that are able to bring out the best of every child. Little Wonders feels like home. The teachers have not changed in all of these years, that means stability. The owner is wonderful, she is understanding and caring. Always available to help or just listen. It's a safe, warm, wondeful environment. No wonder the children never want to leave. Little Wonders Day Care Center, I would give you 10 Stars, but I am only able to give 5. Thank you. Eva
