I plan on enrolling my child in preschool. From the first look, schools appear to be pretty safe with great staff. Teachers are quite professional and know how to work there way around children.
I'm not even sure where to begin. I was hoping this would be a great experience but unfortunately it was not. My daughter hasn't been there a month and has had 3 diaper rashes, 2 colds and just contradicted some virus. The first time my daughter got sick I kept her out of the daycare until she was better. Granted certain things are going to happen. However, this daycare seems more like an infirmary. These parents don't give a damn about sending their kids to this daycare so sick that they require antibiotics. And yes, I witnessed it myself. Parent came in to give their child medicine knowing this child had more than a cold and left. Talk about contamination. I witnessed a kid, using my daughters cup, some children are missing medical forms and still attending and the last straw was when a male (not a parent) walk in the daycare as if he worked there. Although finding child care is extremely difficult, I can not afford to keep subjecting my child to such an unhealthy environment. Im completely disappointed. On any given day, there are 4- 5 workers. Under no circumstances should any of these children be sitting for hours in soiled diapers, playing with your that have not been sanitized or mingle with sit children if you are choosing to allow parents to still bring them. The City Needs to do better at audits and enforcing rules. 4 visits to the ER in one month is unacceptable.
Wonderful school, to begin with. It's been a year since my son is going there, and we are very happy with it. This school offers a nice pool of opportunities and supportive environment for the kids.
Ms. Sofi is very nice lady, and we like her work and great effort. Of course she is highly recommended!
Parients must visit Drops Of Joy, & Speak with Ms. Sofy because she look after the daycare. Her full name in Sofia Cabrera !!
the school is being run like a jungle with the co Director Ms. Liz whom seems to not know anything when questions are being brought her way. As for long-term decisions Ms. Yolanda whom is a executive, has no relationship or understand to the kids in the school. She is just making rash decisions so she wont deal because she has other meeting to attend they pertain to the business and not the moral of the staff or parents.Both Ms. Liz and Ms. Yolanda came up with a plan on moving forward with my child and when it came down to delivering they fell short on what they said they would be able to do and within the second day of my child being back he was terminated. My child was only in Ms. Crystals class for two weeks, he wasn’t even giving a fair chance. Some of these teachers lack the ability to have patients, involvement, participation, and engagement with these children. They either don’t have the experience or the wiliness to what children need.Before I left a seen a very small child with a big blister on the top his head that fell under their watch. My message to Ms. Crystal, Ms. Liz and Ms. Yolanda take the time out to really understand, engage and don’t write people off because you feel like this is to much work. This is childcare, children are nothing but work.
Montclare school has been a blessing in disguise for us and our children. With such an encouraging and hospitable environment, I feel it is one of the best preschool that should be recommended throughout New York city. Their expertise in teaching and instilling values is unparalleled.
This location at E 74th street was shut down by NYC City Investigators for operating illegally in May 2017. My son was enrolled in the 2016-2017 program and was unable to finish due to the schools abrupt closure. The teachers were great but Admin staff is shady. I recommend looking elsewhere for a program for your child. We had a horrible experience with the Iken Science Academy admin staff and its ultimate closure for illegally operating.
My son has already graduated from Montclare school and is, presently, enjoying his time at kindergarten. I am completely in favor of preschool education and Montclare school has got their preschool program absolutely spot on to justify my confidence in preschools.
I had this problem with my twins where they would avoid everyone but each other. So, when I enrolled them in preschool, I was hoping for them to bring about a change and they did just that. I am glad that my kids are socializing like everyone else and I am pleased with their overall performance at school.
