I wanted to take the time to write this for any parents that may be looking for daycare or even had these problems in the past.
When my maternity leave was over I decided to take my LO to the Primrose School of Eldridge Parkway. It was a 5 star school and seemed to have a decent reputation. Boy was I wrong! My son attended this school for 1 year and a quarter. In that short time: Food wasn’t even opened or offered to him on multiple occasions, but listed on his daily sheet as eaten. They listed on multiple occasions that breakfast was eaten but we never drop him off in time for breakfast! They tried to put my then 11 month old on a mat even though all the other children in his class got cribs. (And add that they were completely ignoring the safe sleep policy!) They threw their teachers under the bus for any mistakes or lied about them.
Their “secure” door was broken for months (and still broken when I left) even though it left the school wide open (often times with no one in the front office.) They repeatedly made excuses saying they were going to fix it, but didn’t.
No one ever communicated. Teachers were left in the dark, the school was unorganized (and messy!) and the parents were usually last to find out in regards to their children. And most of the time you’d hear different stories/ facts from different employees.
When I brought these things up to the administration I was told: I am a first time mom and they know better, they are friends with their state rep- if there was an issue they’d just talk to her about it, and that they know how their school is run and have no inclination to change it.
So we left. And we are VERY happy we did. Now I just want to put this out there so no other parents are duped by this school. I know not everyone will have this experience, but we did so you could too.
