My child attends Adventure Learning Academy in the three year old class and I am also a substitute teacher at the center. The two teachers that &quot;left unexpectedly last week &quot; quit on their own accord with no notice and if they were soo great and loved the children soo much then they would have given a two week notice and would have told the children goodbye in their classrooms. Instead they gave no notice and gave no explanation to the children. I do not want my son being taught by a teacher who did not care enough to say goodbye and left without considering the children. I am filling in as a teacher for one of the classrooms that was abadoned and one of the students thought it was her fault that her teacher left. So to Ljkoen7978, if you want your child taught by that type of teacher then ALA is not the place for you. I say good ridence and the &quot;ugly drama&quot; is now gone. Adventure Learning Academy is a clean safe place for my child and I would not take him anywhere else. The director and the other teachers at the center care about the children and actually teach them instead of like most centers who have playtime all day and do not teach the children anything. I would have to say the teachers at the center now are worth something and the teachers that left weren't anything.
I have to disagree with the previous statements made by Ljkoen7978. My child attends Adventure Learning Academy and I would not take them anywhere else. There have been some changes lately in the center but the staff and most importantly the director have been on top of them all. She has done nothing but contact all of the parents personally (including myself) to let us know what is going on and how it is going to affect our children. Adventure Learning Academy is always clean, well kept and the staff is nothing but nice. There are some staff members who have recently left and from personal experience, I'm not sure that is such a bad thing. Weeding out the bad to bring in the good is a great thing!! The staff does have a lot of young girls who are nothing but friendly, well mannered and very great teachers! Go see for yourself! Adventure Learning Academy has a great director who has been in the business for many years and would do anything for you or your children!! GREAT SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This place is a great, friendly well staffed facility! My children attend and have attended for over a year now. I have never had one single problem there! My children have been on both ends of the spectrum. They have been hit/bit and they have also at one point or another been the one doing the hitting/bitting. I recieved a report and an in depth explanation about it EVERY TIME it happened. My children have attended other facilities as well and the same things have happened at those places too. Kids will be kids and will get mad and act out, it's only natural! The teachers are ALL friendly and I have had personal one on one conversations with each and every one of them. They know me by name and speak to me like an adult and a friend, not just another parent. You MUST check out this place for yourself before making your decision. Don't believe everything that you read! Go check the place out before you let some negative nancy make up your mind for you! GREAT SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WILL RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!
I felt the need to write a review since the only one on here is negative. I heard terrible things about MSW before the new owners took over. My daughter started after the changeover and I haven't had anything but positive experience. The owners and director are great with communicating and work hard to respond to any concerns you may have. I have adored all of my daughter's teachers and she loves going there. They have great curriculum that has my daughter's language and comprehensive skills charting way ahead of what is expected.
Our daughter has been going to My Small Wonders her whole life. I did a lot of research and toured several facilities before choosing My Small Wonders. Each room is beautifully themed with large painted walls. They have a terrific curriculum, our 1 year old daughter is learning new things every day. They have amazing playgrounds that were just updated to include a new shade system. It is just perfect for this Oklahoma heat!
My son attends the pre K program at Adventure Learning Academy and he is STILL there. I have no intention of leaving this school. Apparently, someone else believes that they need to pretend to be me to write a negative review about this school. If you do not have the intestinal fortitude to use your own name to write a negative post, then you don't need to write the post.
The care I have received has been wonderful. New Horizons is the next best thing to mom.
Its a good place to help out with kids and horses and the staff
