While my kids and I adore a few of the teachers here, I, as a parent, am quite disappointed with the management. We've been at this location for 3 years and are on director number 4. Each change in director has been a step down and results in less and less communication. I used to walk in and be greeted daily by either the director or assistant director but now, I'm not sure I could find them even if I wanted to. We do however, love the PreK program. Mrs. Trina in the APK room is fantastic and my kids come home every day with more knowledge and a true passion for the pursuit of that knowledge. There are other teachers in the school that are less desirable, however. Teachers that don't quite have the patience for young children, use terrible grammar, have poor attitudes, and generally just seemingly come in to collect a paycheck. I suppose you'll find those employees wherever you go, but I would think that with the high 'tuition' we pay, those would be weeded out a little better. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't choose this school and I certainly don't recommend it to anyone I know.
WONDERFUL! AWESOME STAFF! I couldn't be more pleased with this center. I am a military wife and have 2 young girls, we have moved all over the united states and my kids have been in many military CDC's, so my standards are exceptionally high. They have exceeded all my expectations and I couldn't be happier. The staff have become like a second family and have always shown great patience with my youngest who has ADHD. My kids are always excited and eager to get to school and love telling me all the fun activities they did for the day, as well as what they have learned from their teachers.
Wonderful school, my kids love going and the teachers are all amazing! The care and hard work they put into each and every child shows at how well they are thriving in their education! Thank you Walnut Creek Academy!
