Ravenna-Eckstein Com. Centre: Inexpensive, semi-coop but disinterested teacher 11/19/2006

The same teacher has been there for 17 years, what can I say, I never see her talking to the kids; I never see her playing with the kids; I never hear her catching the kids being good, but she quickly admonishes them when they do something a little wrong. Preschool is semi-co-op, you need to help 4 or 5 times, and you need to bring a snack about 3 times. There are lots of toys scattered around, but not teacher playing with them. There are lots of big cars, an indoor jungle jim with mats and a slide, there is a doll house, a train table, a little kitchen and a little work bench. The kids arrive, have free play for 30 mins. then a couple of books are read to them and they sing a couple of songs (note that they really aren't taught the songs), then an art project, then hand washing for all the tots, then a snack, more free play, then dismissed. The art project is always nicely organized: sometimes the children get stickers to put on a cut out house, or, put a feather on a bird, or, color a paper crown. Basically, there is no teaching. No alphabet letters, no positive reinforcement, just a lot of chatter between the teacher and parents. This is cheap, and a safe environment for kids to play and begin to learn how to do what they are told in a group setting. Not much more. more

Good teen program 8/20/2005

Ravenna Eckstein Community Center hosts a summer teen camp which is the focus of this review. Our daughter has enjoyed this program very much this summer. The facilities are in very good condition, attractive and functional. The staff and program are very good as well, with plenty of activities and field trips scheduled each week. We were pleasantly surprised with this program and have been pleased. more

Great space for kids 8/18/2005

If you live in the Ravenna neighborhood and have kids you should know about this community center. They host classes and open gyms but also in the afternoons they have a play space open for little tykes. For just a couple bucks the kids have access to plastic cars, slides, books- all indoors out of the rain. Careful though- gets crowded on gloomy days. more
