I have used this provider for less than 6 months

There's a male teacher there, Mr. Sean who, in my opinion, was too touchy-feely with the children. My daughter wasn't in his class, but she went to recess at the same time that his class did, and there were many times I would pick her up during recess and see Mr. Sean with different little girls SITTING IN HIS LAP while he would do their hair, or just sit and chat with them...etc. Sadly, my kids were SUPPOSED to keep attending for another 4 months before we would be moving, but I was SO uncomfortable with what I kept seeing, that I lied and told them I would be homeschooling. What I actually did was enroll the kids into a DIFFERENT school for the next 4 months until we moved. On the very LAST day that I picked my kids up from there, ONCE AGAIN there was another little girl sitting in this man's lap during recess, and he had his face WAY too close to hers, whispering in her ear and caressing her cheek. It looked pretty disgusting. I thought to myself that it wouldn't be right to leave the school without voicing my concern, because of the safety of the OTHER children. So I mustered up the courage to say something on our way out. The administrator and another staff member were there at the front office, and as I started the discussion, the staff member started nodding her head and making a face, almost like she had already heard this before. But what disgusted me was that the ADMINISTRATOR (Amy) turned to her desk and faced her computer and pretended she didn't even hear me. I KNOW she heard me because the first words out of my mouth were, "Has anyone ever mentioned that Mr. Sean might be too touchy-feely with some of the little girls?" and she looked DEAD in my eyes, shook her head, and turned away without a word...I followed it up bluntly with, "He's back there with a little girl in his lap right now, and it seems like he ALWAYS has a little girl in his lap everytime I come during recess". She literally didn't look up or acknowledge me any further. CRAZY RIGHT?!!!! That other staff member was the only one acknowledging me, but even then, didn't say anything like "we'll talk to him, maybe you're right and we should establish boundaries...NOTHING like that", all while the administrator literally IGNORED me. From the administrator's demeanor, I sensed she was VERY uncomfortable with the conversation from the moment I said his name. It was almost as if she was sleeping with the guy or something, and didn't want to hear that he was being inappropriate with the children.

(edited) My other student, my son, was the only special needs student in his classroom, and the only one that consistently had some behavior issues and would be outed in front of the whole class, with most days ending with his picture being at the bottom of the behavior chart while everyone else was at the top. So you can imagine how angry and hurt I was during his last week of class, when he came home with a giant ass picture of a SAD FACE that he was required to color in class. WHAT THE F---?!

On a separate issue: there was a 4-year-old TRANSGENDER STUDENT in my daughters class, the 1st she had ever encountered, and she was told MULTIPLE TIMES by staff that it "wasn't nice" to ask him why he wanted to dress like a girl. A NORMAL question that ANY child would ask. That little boy's mom proudly dressed him this way every single day, but didn't feel like it was necessary to equip him with answers for his friends who might ask about it? It made ZERO sense to me. My kid was willing to accept it, but simply was curious as to WHY, and she was told by staff to "be quiet", to "leave 'her' alone", and to "stop being mean", treating her as if she were a bully for simply ASKING. Anyone with experience around kids knows that If a kid asks a question & doesn't get an answer, THEY WILL KEEP ASKING. This place was a joke. A bunch of staff with no backbones, in fear of anything, anyone or any conversations that could be perceived as confrontational. The lack of response I got on that last day when I brought up the inappropriate male teacher, truly drives that point home. The staff here promote an atmosphere that says "don't speak up for yourself, don't defend yourself, don't ask critical thinking questions about the world around you, and if you're uncomfortable with something, stay silent", a message that NO adult should EVER send to small children.
