I have heard quite a bit of information about Primavera. The teachers I hear are trying their best and doing a great job. Unfortunately I'm not hearing too many good things about Management. One story I have heard is abuse of power. I heard an employees pay (last pay) was going to be decreased because she needed to leave primavera. Regardless of the reason someone leaves a company....no employer should "decrease" pay for anyone especially if the hours paid are hours worked!
This school is amazing! From the teachers, to the administration, to the actual aesthetics...it is a very caring, fun and warm atmosphere. The owners take pride in their business and are very approachable and professional. My son really enjoys going to the school and as a parent I know I can place full trust in the staff and administration of Primavera. I know that my child is in a happy learning environment and I would recommend this school to everyone!!
Most of the teachers are wonderful but owners aren't either aware or choose to ignore licensing guidelines. According to their philosophy they pride themselves in," a safe and nurturing environment with small student/teacher ratios." But like I stated before they ignore obvious licensing guidelines especially those in student/teacher ratios. More often than not there exist many supposed "miscommunications" which I believe to be owners that aren't aware of their surroundings.
We recently moved back to Tampa and I visited several schools in this area before choosing Primavera Preschool.We made the right choice!! From the very first day my daughter never cried or felt uncomfortable. The entire staff, including administration, owners and teachers have been so accomodating and helpful. I have complete peace of mind leaving her here. She loves Primavera!!
This preschool sets parents up on Tuition Express which automatically debits the weekly fees and all other fees from your bank account. I paid the deposit to sign my son up for this preschool and a month later they debited $60 from my bank account without notification! It took a week to get them to give me my money back for the school supply fee that they were not supposed to charge to me since my son wasn't even attending the school yet. After my son left the school, they continued to debit my account $160 TWICE after I told them several times to remove my bank account information from their system. DO NOT give these people your bank account information or they may take your money that isn't even theirs to take!
