Gilmore Memorial Preschool is an accredited high-quailty preschool program that provides excellent resources for learning and cares about the safety and the well-being of their students. The director provides out reach services to their parents and makes sure that their childeren are prepared for kindergarten. They have qulaified teaching staff members and supporting staff members that cares about the students. The preschool is clean and well kept. The children are provided with well balanced nutritional meals.

According to the assessment data, their students are well prepared when they transition to the next level. I believed that Gilmore Memorial Preschool is doing a superb job in educating their students and there should be more high-quality preschool programs providing the same quality educational services.

The director of the school does not care for the children. Shes only in this business for the money. Teachers are always out of ratio. The ratio is 8 children per assistant and they always had about 20 children. Substitutes are never provided when someone is out. Director uses volunteers as substitutes. She doesn't care about the childrens safety. The school is always dirty, garbage cans stink due to rotten milk spilled or food. Janitor does not clean. The children constantly gt lunch really late. One day it was 3:00 pm and the children were eating lunch. There was no snack provided for the children. The director could have ordered pizza if the lunch truck was going to be late. She pockets all the money. They napped without having lunch. It's horrible there! If you want your child to be cared for and loved, please look for a preschool with a great director who actually knows how to deal with children and a director who cares for them. Gilmore Memorial Preschool needs to be shut down.
