My oldest daughter has been going to this school since she was 16 mos and my youngest daughter since she was 8 weeks old, they are now ages 4 and 3. From the beginning, this school has been nurturing, educational and fun. The staff has always been friendly, accommodating and very professional. Even under new management, the school and staff are exceptional. I was very pleased that this school was transitioned into a Montessori school. My children are learning at a higher level, but at their own pace. My 4yr old can read and my 3yr old can speak Spanish! I would recommend this school to everyone.
The daycare here is probably one you would want to turn your head in another direction and avoid looking at.Let me walk you through this center: You walk in the door and the first thing you see is a VERY narrow walkway path and in front of you is a very UNSTABLE book shelf that has once fallen when a baby car seat was set ontop.This is the daycare's fault because ANYTHING in a daycare should be safe and stable.The kids are almost always in their high chairs and watching TV.Out of the 6 months that I had allowed my daughter to stay there NEVER were they doing anything educational whenever I picked her up whether it was 11, 1,or 5pm they were always held down. They should be able to run and play especially with each other.The other room is very cluttered. they combine the kitchen with the older kids room and it seems almost not even safe.As a mom we all know that kids are very sneaky, when they want something they'll get to it no matter what. What if they want something that was ontop of the fridge.they could grab a chair and climb out there and fall down! This doesn't even come close to the issues I had with this center.My daughter was accused of kicking them very violently as they would change her diaper but out of all the times I changed her diaper she's never done that to me, so using my "mother instincts" I knew that they had to have been doing something that she didn't like or wasn't comfortable with.The next time i brought her home she had nail marks in her thighs. when i asked them about it they accused me of abusing her and called DCF on ME! I couldn't believe it.The idea of my daughter being questioned if she should stay in my care or not was devestating.I was paying a month in advance to this daycare and when i took my daughter out early.They still owed me money to this day (7 months later) they STILL haven't paid me back and refuse to do so.Please if you care for your children, show this to all parents and do not let this daycare care for your child.
