I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Our Child was at this school for about a year and we have seen some of the worst practices ever. The biggest problem is the attitude of School's Director Stephanie which has brought the school this low. There is huge "COMMUNICATION GAP" between teachers, director and the Ownership. Issues are wrongly communicated by the director Intentionally to the Owner so that problems are placed under the rug, but off course they haunt the children and their families. Owner Debbie also tries to minimize issues and tries to ignore them, hence jeopardizing the child's needs and safety. School politics overshadow the quality in this school. Teachers change every 2-3 months.

There are HUGE SAFETY ISSUES regarding this school. Our Child was coming home almost every day with bruises and scratches with no notification from school that how these happened. Furthermore, they moved my child to a higher class without having my son completely potty trained and without consulting the parents. My son used to come home wearing classmate's underwear and despite of repeatedly notifying the teachers and management, it continued. We explained that our child might get infection but they would not pay any attention. When we discussed with staff at another Goddard, they said child first of all child CANNOT be promoted to another class if not COMPLETELY POTTY TRAINED and using other classmates' underwear is HAZARD. When we notified this to the school director Stephanie, she very rudely and unprofessionally said "this is how we work and if you are not happy you may leave and don't spoil our mood and day ", thinking that we are stuck as we both work, but as parents no matter how busy we are we would never compromise on our child. My child gets meds if did not pass bowel and they simply refused to log it even when initially promised when we toured the school.

It got to that point that the Director told us that if we want to continue staying in this school we need to keep our "MOUTH SHUT". Eventually this forced us to pull our child out from this school as we lost trust in them, and imagine the height of lying and cheating that on multiple occasions we got emails from the school about our child's nap and snacks schedule for later afternoons when we had picked up our child earlier that day. The lack of honesty and truthfulness at all levels (from teachers to the director and owner) is a regular practice at this school. My son deserves a SAFE ENVIRONMENT AND CARING in exchange of the FAT FEE they receive. Please think a MILLON times before joining this school.

1st time visitors will be shown all the good stuff like we were shown when we joined but later ALL THE REAL STUFF WILL COME OUT and as parents safety is our top priority and when a school does not pay attention to repeated reports and complaints, off course this causes frustration as I am sure management as parents will be concerned same way as we were if it mattered to their own children BTW we have documentation that we notified issues to the management repeatedly !!
