We are very disappointed in Learning Tree. Our daughter began attending the Arlington location in December 2006, and there were problems from day 1. From having the care-providers yelling at the kids and telling them to shut up to a total lack of any kind of educational program, it has been a constant disappointment. The only reason we didn't switch her to a different location earlier was that we didn't want to put her in another new situation right before going to Kindergarten. The breaking point came when my husband tried to talk with Bob (the owner/manager) about an issue of the care provider telling our daughter that she couldn't dress a certain way, but not telling us. (She was told that she couldn't wear dresses or skirts because sometimes when she sat down her underwear showed. We also had the impression that she had been told in such a way as to make her feel ashamed.) Bob first said "I don't know what do you want me to do about it" Then when my husband said that he wanted him to talk to the care provider and that we didn't want anyone making our daughter feel bad about herself, his response was that we should maybe just take her out of the location right now if we were so concerned. His hostile reaction to our legitimate concerns was shocking, and certainly goes a long way toward explaining all the problems at the daycare. There are several other daycares and preschools in Arlington - I strongly urge any parent to place their children in one of them. The management doesn't care, and the staff is underage and undertrained.
Cons: Management doesn't care, staff underage and undertrained
