     I definitely would not recommend anyone to send his/her child to this child care center!!!

    They tell you that they have a good teacher/child ratio, but it is a lie. Teachers always quit their jobs there, leaving the center in shortage. My child went to one of their classes along with at least 15 other children with only two teachers, one of which had to watch children all time come and go to the bathroom across the hall, while the other either only sat down doing paperwork or talking to 5 children, leaving the others in rage. (Don't misunderstand this, though, because they neither help nor teach children how to be bathroom independent; so, your child's clothes could get dirty there). The other class was even worse-10 younger children and one teacher! They also keep rotating teachers among the different classes, so your child may have to work with different teachers every day. In addition to that, they tend to group children into one class during the days when they are short in teachers (which is almost every day), so, it does not matter which class you register your child for-you might find your senior preschooler or toddler with the juniors or the other way around.

    Most of their teachers are not well educated; my child started to pronounce "this" as "dis" after a while because that is how the teacher pronounced it! Once I even received a note from one of the teachers, who wrote "where" instead of "were"! Actually, most of their teachers are old, and I think that they are only "nannies" rather than teachers.

    Their meals are miserable, especially if your child is vegetarian, and they don't care if the children ate or not. The important thing is the time schedule. So, if your child is picky or slow eater, they will deprive him/her of the right to finish his/her meal when time is up.

    They don't have a good curriculum, despite what they might tell you, unless you are willing to pay extra $175 a month for two hours of math and phonics per week. The play grounds are yet the worst thing; they have one slide, 2 or 3 rusty bikes, and 3 or 4 balls per playground, and they might also charge you extra $145 for summer activities that range from ice cream to just showing animals to children for 30 minutes, or sometimes running the water through the grass sprayer in the playground (as if $1100 is not enough).

    Rules are rules though, so, your child might be sprayed with water to be forced to wake up when nap time is up, and they will definitely charge you $1 per minute for late child pickup.
