Would give it zero stars if I could! This preschool has broken numerous laws. Ratios of how many adults are legally required to be in a room with students are never met. Students are punished and embarrassed constantly. Moved to lower classes if they do not behave "properly." Nothing is developmentally appropriate. They pride themselves on being an academic preschool, but what people don't realize is that means that 3, 4, and 5 year olds are being taught and expected to act like they are in 3rd grade at least. When this is not met, as no one would sanely expect it to be, the children are screamed at, embarrassed, and punished. Not a good pre-school environment for children...
The director is a fake, two faced, people pleasing, liar. She acts like the school is the best place in the entire world, everything is all happiness and sunshine, but then once she gets people to sign up, it's gone. She then proceeds to scream at anyone, child or adult, who does not do as she says. When parents come into the school, she makes sure everything looks great, so no one realizes what's going on, but if you look closer, it's not good. She is a narcissistic bully. She thinks she knows better than the laws in place for preschools and does whatever she wants, then changes it when the state comes in to inspect, so she can keep her license. She tells people exactly what they want to hear, but it is all a lie. Teachers- you don't want to work there. Parents- you don't want your kids to be tortured there. This school should not be allowed be open. STAY AWAY!
To Whom It May Concern, We are very sorry to read such strong words regarding your experience with our school. We have tried to look you up and cannot find your name associated as a parent of a student, relative or as an ex-employee. As I am sure you can understand, these comments are something we would like to address directly with you. We were quite dismayed and rather puzzled by your harsh claims in your review as our school follows the highest standards to ensure a high level of quality to our student body, our parents and our staff as well. We follow regular standards that are provided by the state licensing bodies as well as grow New Jersey kids which we are a participant in. We make sure not only to follow the ratios that are mandated by these programs but exceed them as well once again to make sure that we are able to provide the best quality education to our students. Our teachers are warm caring and compassionate an offer developmentally appropriate curriculum to all of our students. We group our students based upon their ability and recognize them for their achievements letting them reach their highest level of potential commending for them for such. We use uniquely designed materials that offer hands on possibilities for all of our students regardless of their age. We invite you to see our program unannounced any day of the week so that you, firsthand, have a working knowledge of how this is implemented in all of our classrooms offering a nurturing environment for our students at every level. One of the most enjoyable aspects of my job is mentoring teachers and working with them side-by-side learning from them as a two-way street and developing positive relationships with them so that we can again ensure the highest level of quality for our students and our parents offering the best communication we can have. I would be most happy to discuss any aspect of our program with you at whatever time is convenient for you. Again, we are very taken back by your comment and would like to resolve your concerns as soon as possible. Please contact Debbie at 732-888-1919. Sincerely, Holmdel Preschool
This school brings in special guests for events and my son doesn't stop talking about them all! They are always wonderful experiences. All of these class events are well organized and I always have the feeling that I have full access to the teachers and staff as needed through e-mail!
