Worst schook May 14, 2016
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

By far the worst organization ran . This hempstead location is ran by Marylin Rodriguez she's such a horrible director I've heard such sad story's from past employees and parents who were told to keep things "civil an not to make any scene" the director is basically sleeping with the school cook ..I went to meet with her she was in her office with him for over an hour disregarding our plans to meet.I wanted to meet because my child told me she saw a school a staff member talking about handing off some drugs to a parent and prices and one of the young men was very handsy with her ...when I brought this to me Rodriguez she simply said oh children can be so funny with what they say . Nothing was ever done . Once again another child said they over heard a similar convo and still nothing's done ..they are a horrible school the playground is disgusting the admin are rude I feel bad for the children and staff .. I went to pick up my child and saw assistant director Sheila yanking a small child down the hall whispering in and angry way "not today I don't have time for this shit" I couldn't believe my eyes and ears they put up a front to get our money and they treat our children and staff horrible..I pulled my daughter out and she is happy and so am I
