My 2 year old teacher is the best. She always has a clean, orderly class with happy children. My child says her name and wants to see her and is excited to go to school. The teacher always greets her and gives her a hug. All the kids lover her. She does great preschool projects and teaches spanish and english, reads. They only get tv twice a week for an hour. She teaches them potty training and was successful. They drink from a cup, not a sippy and are successful. I have to say the teacher makes a center good. They have a policy to always keep the kids clean and hair in place. Parents I've talked to said the same. I watched an older class the other day where one of the older boys literally flew accross the table to start a fight and the teacher had to hold him down by the arms - and she had the class in order within 60 seconds and the kids calmed down, including the instigator, and a call into the office for assistance in a non panicked tone, and didn't even need me to help. I was impressed. This center spends the money to send the teachers to extra classes unlike other centers. They also have the largest space per child anywhere in the city, for extra room to play and run around. (About 4 times larger than any other day care rooms in the city). Separated outside play centers for each class, and inside play center area for rainy days. Day care by nature will spread germs no matter how careful they are. They do tell you to take home all dirty clothes daily, and nap blankets weekly. They put fresh sheets on the pads daily. They vacuum daily, which is better than some care centers I've seen. Because they pay more for the teachers- we get better care here.
Pros: Investment in teacher ongoing training, Space, Clean, Price, Constant video monitoring of all classes, modern space
Cons: Double door but not keypad locked
