I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Their program is all for show. The teachers are at maximum capacity or over most of the time, the kids are just numbers. How they still have a license is beyond me, so many violations hidden. I pulled my kids once I found another option and they are not crying at every drop off anymore. Listen to your kids, they will tell you the truth!

Safety First Oct 14, 2014

The Heber City AristoCat program is not a safe environment for children.

Psychologist say the number one thing parents need to provide for their children is safety. The AristoCat Academy fails to provide this essential need.

I witness first hand children being attacked by other children on several occasions. The only disciplinary action taken was alone time for the student who was behaving poorly. Sometimes they held the teacher's hand or were directed to go do another activity until they could calm down. Rarely did this work. Moments later that same student would attack another child again. Sometimes they would attack the teacher they were angry with.

Perhaps the teachers need better training on how to deal with these situations. But from what I witness the teachers at the AristoCat Children's Academy exercised every resource they had available to the best of their ability. Regardless, the management at this academy are more interested in keeping cliental than proving a safe environment for the teachers and most importantly the students.

This program offers no accountability for poor behavior. The parents, in my opinion, needed to be involved and told if their child continues to attack the other students they will be expelled or suspended from the program.

Safety needs to come first! Until the AristoCat Children's Academy realizes this I will NOT be sending ANY of my children to their program. I will not promote there business in any way.
