This preschool is awful. My child attended on both the "little" side and the "big" side. The directors and owner make it very clear that profit is the only important thing. The facility is left in a below satisfactory state with an unlocked and open gate to the driveway and parking lot that lead directly to the children s yard, bugs that crawl through the areas where children sleep on thin mats on the floor, paint and stucco are pealing/chipping, the list goes on and on. Some teachers want to do more with the children and are told to do it on their own dime. Other teachers look like street walkers. My child was injured on 2 occasions and I wasn't notified until I walked through the door. One injury required a trip to the ER. Bullying is rampant by both other children and some teachers. Many staff members are leaving as soon as they can. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE. YOU WILL REGRET IT!

We apologize for having to suggest to this parent that she take her child elsewhere for care. He had special needs for which we felt we could no longer provide proper care, and we were concerned for his safety. He in fact came to Wee Care for several years and even graduated with his class from Pre-K. It is curious that, during the years the child attended, we NEVER received a complaint from this parent. The child did once require a trip to the ER due to a fall likely caused by a new medication we later found out he was taking (we were not informed he was on it at the time), and the parent was notified immediately when it happened. For minor scrapes we do not bother parents at work – we notify them when they pick up their child. For the record, we are a business and do make our living at this, but if profit were our only concern we would have gladly continued accepting money from this parent in spite of our concern for the child’s safety, and not asked her to leave. We have self-locking, self-closing gates at both entrances with numerical security keypads which require code entry for admittance. We have no problem with insects, although it is possible one comes into the building on occasion. It is always very difficult to ask a parent to take her child elsewhere, as it often causes deep-seated bitterness towards us due to feelings of rejection. But we have to be honest if we don’t feel we can provide proper care.
