If I would have read the previous reviews before enrolling , my child would have missed out on an optimal period of her growth and development . My child came to Grace Academy when she was 2yrs old , from the beginning the staff showed my child love and support . This is my daughters last year with grace academy and I am over confident that she is beyond ready for kindergarten in August . From her reading skills , to spelling , to memorization, as well as math , the staff has taught her how to excel in excellence. It just did not stop with the education , Grace's structured environment has also tailored her behavior to be respectful, kind, and loving . Kudos to the staff for faithfully loving and caring for each child in a very genuine way. Last Mrs. Mary ( the director) not only cares and loves each child , but has a heart for each families unique situation.
Let me start by saying that there are 2 or 3 good teachers at Grace. They do not have an extensive training of what is developmentally appropriate, but they do have a love for children and that goes a long way. When my children started at Grace I was told by Ms. Seymour the Director that all the reviews on this site were written by old employees that had been fired, but I later found out that this was a lie. Grace has so much potential but unfortunately Ms. Seymour the director nor the owners care enough about the center , kids nor the families that need the center to make it what it has the potential to be. The Director Ms. Seymour is rarely there,and teachers cover for her! She has no clue of developmental milestones or student placement, she is inconsistent with center policies, she loses payments,safety is a concern and she has no idea whats going on in the classrooms. I can say that the teachers do what they can with what they have and Ms. Lonnie is the most sound teacher there.
