This place does not even deserve a star. it should not even be opened! The owner as well as the wife are the most disgusting people I have come across in my entire life. Like you I want the best for my little angel and now I can see that this happened for a reason and I thank God for getting them out of there. Please don't make the same mistake I did. Do your research! Find a loving place not just a making money business were they kip your child. Good Luck and God Bless you.
On March 9th 2018 I went to pick up my son (15 months old) from the Kendall gate Smart Starts location from Ms. Ingrid’s VPK 1 class. They had been in the playground for over an hour and were in the bathroom washing their hands w the other kids. When I was walking up to the bathroom I could hear a baby sobbing & making loud convulsing gasps in-between the cries. When I walked in it was my baby who was the one crying. He had full blown tears streaming, boogers coming out of his nose into his mouth and shirt. When I asked Ms. Ingrid what happen she said (in Spanish) that he was fine and that he had been that way for an hour. If he had been that way for an hour the school should have called me. She then told me they couldn’t call me every time he cried (which is obvious to me and not what I was asking of them but if he was crying for an hour SPECIALLY LIKE THAT any parent would logically want to be notified). The day before he was not feeling well so she then said maybe he wasn’t feeling well, and that he shouldn’t have even came to school that day. Whichever situation it was (a) crying for no reason for an hour (b) crying because he was ill the day before and didn’t feel well = both situations warrant a call to the parents. I left crying and traumatized. That night I went home and reviewed all the video taping of that week and found 2 days before his Teacher Ms. Ingrid pulling my baby’s shirt and lifting him up fully JUST BY HIS SHIRT in order to scoot him up on his mat during nap time. Was it malicious? I don’t think so. Was it appropriate? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Had a parent been in the room she would have not done that.
Hebron is the best when it comes for professionalism; and great instructors for students. I will be the first to recommend Hebron to all of my friends and co-worker.
Hopefully a better year this year with new principal! All day and aftercare teachers are great. Caring, Patient and Helpful, but beware of the aftercare director, she is ruthless and fake to the core. My son does not like her at all. Kids have an instinct that we don't...Trust them!
The atmosphere seems to be getting worse there. It's a shame because we considered OLOL to be decent school but not any more. I will Not bring my daughter back to this school next year.it is a shame to see a catholic school with so many evil people.THE PRINCIPLE IS A PUPPET.the teachers can not teach and the office is only want your moneyPlease do not send your child to this stock up place.God Bless
bad experience ..in October 30,2015 my son 1year was six bites in the back right and one left . nobody noticed not know what has happened . I was there same day . They not want to show the video because they say it always deleted after this report to the children in the family with the pictures and spent a month and the response was that the bites were homemade . and the case is incomplete, that me feel very unhappy for negligence in this place
TERRIBLE!!!! Would not recommend to anyone. This school does have an ounce of professionalism. Worst experience ever!I enrolled my daughter last month for ballet classes. I was very clear that her experience was limited to a few jazz classes. I paid the registration fee and spent over $150 on required uniforms (retail location they sent me to). My little girl was so excited about dance class until this past Tuesday. They put her in a Prelim 3 level (means nothing to me) and she had her first class this week. It was AWFUL! My 9 year old left mid-class in tears - class was way too advanced, teacher didn't speak English, there was no actual teaching as it was clear these were known techniques and steps to the other girls. She had spent the latter half of summer getting ready - practicing the basics, positions - and it was all in vain. Forget the money spent; there's no compensation for a 9 year old's tear-filled evening. I waited 2 days for a return call and had to call back as no one ever called me. At this point, the director explains (in Spanish as clearly English is not spoken here) that she can go to an entry level class for her age, etc. Too late! My daughter wants nothing to do with ballet or this studio. Why didn't they offer that class at registration or when I picked her up in years? Why didn't they set proper expectations? Or have her evaluated? Ballet concerto = DECEPTIVE business practices and a heartbroken little girl. They should be ASHAMED of their studio.#balletconcertosucks
I got a review. So my daughter started Kids Colors Learning Center at the beginning of 2015. It was amazing the first couple of days leaving her. Then all of the sudden, she starts to cry every single morning. I am thinking she is just adjusting... On a good note, she IS learning a lot, she learned to write her name and last name and pretty much all the letters of the alphabet in less than 3 months, also all the numbers! she really is learning a lot! so yes, for learning the academics is a really good school. Now, something is off with this school my daughter is still sad to stay in the mornings. I am not so sure that she absolutely likes her main teacher, she however likes other teachers and she mentions them lovingly, so I am thinking not all of them are nice or loving. I have tried to show up and see what they are up to a couple of times in the afternoon and I have found some teachers screaming (in a really mean way) at the smaller kids (not mine) but to other (smaller kids) I have involved myself with the teachers as much as I can, talking to them in the morning and in the afternoon so that I know what my daughter is doing all day. This way, they open up to me, yes I will admit that they are not the easiest to talk to. I not sure if this is business policy, but I only interested in my child so I try my best to get involved. Also, I can’t go to all the events, so I send my mother or step mother to go in my stead and make sure the check everything out, and so far there has only been one mean comment towards a little girl that cries a lot. I hope it is not like that all the time as this comments by their only teachers and caregivers creates the perfect excuse for bulling and for low self-esteem in kids that are just starting to explore life. Also, I would say that just one or two teachers speak English, so when my daughter started I was told she didn't know how to speak correctly, then I realized they were referring to Spanish language, well my daughter is not fluent in Spanish, as English is her first language and she only speaks a few basic words in Spanish. They also have a good schedule for the kid’s activities, everything is organized. They read a lot to the kids my daugther’s favorite activity and they have a wall from top to bottom of books that she absolutely loves. Regarding the school building itself. This building is a stand alone building, meaning there are no other businesses attached to it, that’s a really nice commodity. It has high ceilings and very well lit with lots of high windows. The decoration is 100% educational and kids play friendly. The place is cleaned twice a day! Incredible! Yes, twice day it is sparkly clean everywhere and my daughter has gotten sick, but not as sick as I know other kids have in other schools. So I give them that much! It really is a super clean environment for your child. The building downfall is the Park right in front of it. It catches on fire every once in a while and you must run to get your kid and it won’t be easy getting there because they police will block all Eureka and any way of turning into 134 ave, so good luck there! The teachers are well trained for this chaos and they call you right away, they will make sure the kids are out of the school and out of danger, specially since there is a gas station right next door! There was an incident with one child found with LICE! And immediately all the teachers were checking the rest of the kids to make sure no one else had it. Right now, they are on summer camp. My daughter is still sad in the mornings and super happy in the afternoon when I pick her up. I get the whole attachment issue, but I would think it would be over by now… but I am hoping it gets better. I wish they had cameras in this school the Montessori schools. I am really obsessed with my child, but what good parent isn’t? I hope this review helps you.
I had my 2 year old start at this facility and I had to transfer him somewhere else after the first week. I couldn't get to know the teacher well enough so I don't have much to say about her but I never saw her smile and she didn't look happy. My problem was how insensitive the owners were. They got so offended at how much I cared for my son as him and I were trying to adjust to child care for the first time. These people have no clue how to run a learning center as they are so tough on their staff and the parents as well. I met an ex employee of theirs and she had nothing nice to say about them. Just be aware parents.
This daycare is AMAZING! My son has been attending for a little over 6 months now and I cannot express how pleased I am with this daycare. The facility is always clean and in order. The teachers are awesome and my son looks forward to going to "school" every morning. I am so grateful to have found a place that I feel comfortable leaving my child and knowing that I have nothing to worry about. If you are looking for an affordable place with a dependable staff you should definitely consider Kids Colors.
