I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I would recommend to stay away from school due to 2 incidences which i experienced with my kid. I drop my kid in morning for preschool and used to pick him up in afternoon around lunch time. 1) One day when i saw that my 3 yeard old kid was made to wear diaper since he had accident on morning during breakfast. But he was worn underwear on top of diaper. Diapers are large and you cannot fit underwear on top of it. This was common sense . No one is made to wear underwear on top of diaper . Due to this he felt ucomfortable and i got to know he constantly tried to adjust diaper. When i went in afternoon to pick him up I saw diaper hanging loose outside from his pant on all the sides.To my shock he was being attended in area other than diaper changing area by one of the teacher. Seeing me she immediately left him . My heart dropped a beat seeing his state and immediatly complained same day. But was told that he had pulled diaper hence teacher was trying to correct it. But it was really in unhygenic way.. My question is if you have teachers attending small kids , don't they have basic training of how to fit proper diaper to kids and never to MAKE WEAR underwear on top of it. 2) My kid did not know how to talk and was beginning to learn talking . He just knew few words like 'eat', 'sleep', 'give', 'lights off', 'good work' and children rhyme songs related to alphabets and shapes. We always speak good to him in house . But looks like some one in his school ,( which i never got to know ) continuously spoke bad slang 4 letter word in front of him. Kids learn what they hear. My kid did not know what it meant and spoke it in front of us 2-3 times after coming home. I immediately called up center and complained to find out who is saying those words. But they said may be some kid would be saying privately without their knowledge. Else they would have complained to that kids parents. I do not think other 3 years kids are smart enough to say it in low whisper, and would say it loudly anything and everything. My expectation was that teachers find it out with their effort that who was speaking bad words, since they are constantly with all kids. But to my sadness it was never found out. These 2 incidences really left me disappointed. 3) Like any other parent my main purpose to send my kid to creative beginners was that t he would learn to speak better be more social with kids. Though was happy after going to school since being a single child he would get bored staying all day in home, but due to above incidences which happened on last few days of his going there i got worried a lot as how he would have been handled on earlier days.Children do not know what is right and wrong. Especially at 3 years age they just learn what they see. And since at that age they cannot speak so much , we totally trust on staff to take extra care of small adorable kids, and stop any wrong doing(like someone swearing) by anyone , and put effort in finding any wrong doings after complaints. But some negligence, or unapologetic response by teachers for above incidences points disappointed me. I recommend to have surprise visits to schools to find out how well kids are being taken care of.

My daughter got so much from her time there. We took her out of a home daycare when she was about 2 1/2 only because she needed a little more structure. She absolutely blossomed at CBCCAC! She LOVED going there every morning and couldn't wait to see her teachers and friends. She actually has a friend to this day that she met while attending! I highly recommend them!!
