Absolutely don't even deserve a star! This day care is filthy and disgusting. My son kicked and screamed every time when I drop him off at this nightmare home run day care in the worst part area of bronx. My child has scratches, bruises and is sick every time when I pick him up from this day care. His clothes, bibs, pacifiers, hats and socks are always missing from this day care. The owner denis pena is rude when I asked about it! Ignorant and disrespectful and thinks because she works with children that makes her an expert with children while she barely speaks any English. Her only worker is her mom and most 10 other babies were ignored while crying when I picked my son up. They don't care for the children the way they should, they do not potty train properly nor do they clean up your child. Anything she dislikes she will talk to you and always offer for you to go elsewhere when a parent disagrees with her and asker her about child's missing items. She does not know how to speak with people and most importantly they will hurt your child here!
Best educational place. very professional teachers, so lovely with kids, drawing, reading books and much more activities, Definitely the best place for you children learn Recommend.
I interviewed for a position and observed a 3rd grader writing, "I will respect Ms. Tasha". Excessively on a paper for his punishment for not listening. Not only is that corporal punishment, but the director defended why she made him do it. The program charges $75 a week and I observed kids locked in the classroom for 3 hours doing nothing. Two kids were sleeping the whole time. Do not put your child in this program unless you just need a babysitter!
Bright Stars Daycare's lacks insight of how to partner with parents and run a well cared for facility in the best interest of our children. They've had several issues with passing city inspections which they fail to communicate clearly. You're left in the dark until you're affected by last minute school closings or rate increases. With the exception of Ms. Vlora, the faculty lacks enough education to teach our children specifically having one teacher who can't even speak English but who is left in charge of our children. The facility is in need of a good cleaning....my child comes home with filthy clothes...at one point a few kids left with hair lice. The backyard is need of repairs. The gate has wire poking into the yard where the children play and they have refused to fix it because the gate belongs to the neighbor not to this property however, several children have been injured by it. They lack diversity. The director is all about the money and could care less about the quality and care of our children. Do your research and do not go with what's convenient....this place is not worth it!
The people who works there are great!The owner has a passion for what she does, she is great with kids, I have known her for many years now. I super recommend!!! You and especially your child will love there.
This school is beyond amazing, From the lovely ladies infront such as Ms. Stephanie & Ms.Janae to my daughters teachers Ms. Virginia & Ms. Ronnie. I only have one child and it means the world to me knowing my child is in good hands. I love this school and there is not ONE thing i can say bad about this school. Every worker here is very respectful and loving! Very understanding aswel! I recommend this school for everyone and give this school a 5 star !
Beautiful center, state of the art. My daughter is learning so much. i love this school. she gets homework every other day. the facility is always clean. the staff is professional and courteous
Little Stars Three is the best preschool/learning center hands down!When I began my search, several places turned me down when they learned that my son had just turned 2 and was dead smack in the middle of potty training. One afternoon, on a referral from a neighboring reputable preschool, the Director met with us. My son instantly fell in love with the people and the atmosphere - we were sold! Forget All State, he's been in great hands since his end of summer 2016 enrollment. The Staff have a great rapport with each other and the parents, but most importantly the students. If there's any discord amongst themselves though, one would not know. I like that because as a parent, it comforts me to know that my child's education and productivity are first foremost.The Director and Teachers are attentive and communicative. I also appreciate that the student to teacher ratio is 6:1 - for instance, my son's class has about 12 children on a busy day, with 2 teachers. I appreciate this because it allows the teachers to be hands on with all children for an array of things, ranging from breakfast to nap, play, meal and snack time, to activities and bathroom breaks. It also brings me comfort knowing that my child is adequately fed through out the day. At home he has a bottomless tummy *smile*, but I let him eat. At school, they honor his appetite without speculation or judgment. After school, he sing songs a list of his healthy meals and snacks!Lastly, flexibility. Most days we arrive at school at 7am, picking him up between 5:30-6pm. These hours are a godsend, as my husband and I both have full time careers. All qualified staff pitch hit to make sure the school is well staffed at all times, and that the children aren't sitting around idle. There's always productivity when I walk in! And even some to take home, as homework is a must at least twice a week. I receive daily progress reports via parent teacher conversations and on paper.Can't get more efficient that this!
I love this school, I took my child out her old school and put her in little stars because it's such a great environment for my child. I love the teachers and staff. Best decision I've made
I have had a HORRIBLE experience putting my child in this school for Pre-K. First my daughter came home with scratches around ending of sept, I asked teacher they confirmed the kids were horse playing during reading time. Reading time is to stay still and read not play horsing around. Second they did not call me until I had to call to check on her. Everyday it was something. Finally they put a second teacher in the morning to help . 21 children and you have one teacher in the AM . She couldn't handle it. Then this afterschool teacher recently told me after 5:30 pm they will charge me $10 late fee. I was there at 5:45 , they want to charge me! that's $200 monthly on to the $300 a month for after school. Meanwhile when I applied for my child for this school two teachers told me its till 6pm. This afterschool teacher tells me to "call whoever I want " after I stated I will call the DOE to ask what is going to happen. "She stated she let me slide here and there when I came at 5:45p,. Meanwhile her daughter attends the same school she doesn't have to struggle at all. I hate rushing due to my Knee problems and they could care less about any of the parents schedule. I wasn't the only one complaining. Anyways I took her out, they don't watch the kids, they don't feed them " once a child says no: they give up, they do not teach them the correct things for pre-k and they do not call you when anything happens. Yes I know they are kids. and kids will be kids but cmon, I'm tired of going there and its always something. and now you want to take advantage with my money. Sorry but its not even worth it.
