I must say I was astonished when I read the two. Egative reviews about my sons preschool. My son is graduating from MSEE is Aug and has been accepted into the DPS advanced full day kinder program and he's almost a year to young. I atest this to the schools owner Mrs Martin and her reading and character counts programs. My son was reading books independently by 3.5 and is currently reading at an early 1st grade level. Mrs Martin even spoke with my sons new school and they are going to place him into a 1st grade class for reading! The School is also very affordable for the quality and location(Washington Park) In short my family could not have been taken care of any better for the year and a half we spent at The Martin School.

Our 3 year old is a very stubborn, difficult, independent little girl and since beginning at the Martin School in Sept of this year, she has flourished. On the first day that we visited, before even deciding on enrolling our child, the quality of the staff was beyond evident.

The facility is a renovated Victorian house so the environment that the school owners have created is a wonderful balance of feeling like being in a warm home while having a structured, planned curriculum.

This perhaps is not the right environment for a child whose parents would prefer a more "free-form" approach or style. It was extremely important to us that our daughter not only have fun and playtime at preschool, but be in an environment in which mindfulness, self-control and accountability, and a love of learning and achievement are fostered-- The Martin School has created a system in which this is achieved at an age appropriate level for a toddler.

Play is encouraged while learning is the primary focus.

Our daughter is thriving there, and now loves going to school each day.

Thank you to the Martin School directors...

Pros: Our daughter will be very prepared for Kindergarten

Cons: Not for children whose parents want "free-form" environment

This school is not for every child. Our 2-year-old never adjusted to this place after 6 months of being there, though my child had done fine at a previous school (and has since been doing very well at a new school). It was apparent to us that the owners want to run a kindergarden rather than a preschool that allows 2- and 3-year-olds, and are more interested in having an easy place to work than in engaging the children. Certain staff members are not receptive to the needs of younger children, and independent behavior is not encouraged by the curriculum's rigid structure. If your child has trouble adjusting, the school may suggest that you attend another school, with very little notice.

I had a discussion with the owners about our child and how maybe it wasn't the right fit and we agreed to see day-to-day how it went while we started the process of looking for another daycare. Every day for that next week, while we looked for a new daycare, I would ask how the day went and I would get a disappointing 'okay', but nothing too alarming. So, it came as a shock when we showed up one morning, about a week after our initial discussion, to have the owner say 'tomorrow really should be her last day', as I told the owner just two days before we were still looking for another place. It really gave us no notice. As two working parents, we were left in quite a bind. I feel the way they handled this was very unprofessional. They said that this has happened four other times, so this isn't an isolated incident.

We have since found a daycare that our child is thriving in. It took only 4 days before our child was fully adjusted and our child absolutely loves it. We no longer dread drop off time. I have since found out that another family at our child's current daycare had a very similar experience at the Martin School of Early Education.

Pros: Small daycare

Cons: Little patients with young children or independent children

This school uses a reward and punishment (jelly beans and time out) system to instill obedience. Make sure that your son or daughter responds well to this kind of discipline technique and that you?re ok with it before sending him/her to this school. Our son frequently got into trouble at Martin school. He now attends a school that emphasizes positive reinforcement and redirection to teach kids right from wrong. It?s an early childhood development facility connected to a major university. He?s doing great at his new school (no tantrums, disobedience or time outs) and we have the daily report cards to prove it.

Pros: good with teaching kindergarden prep work

Cons: school is petitioning for larger class size without adding teachers
