Please take into consideration that the above review was most likely written by the teacher who's children attend the school. The onyl reason people like the school is because of the location- yet they onyl take the kids to the park one day a week. This is the most unprofessional school I have ever seen- they are a mess. The activities in their brochure do not exist. Their schedule is also, non existant. My child began acting out and scolding her baby dolls- saying things like "you're a bad example" and "you are so rude!" with her finger in the babys face. I began doing a little spying outside the school. The main teacher cannot conrtol her temper. When I asked for a few minutes of her time, she came into the office, and when I brought up what my daughter was doing at home she said obviously my daughter was a LIAR (there is the name calling again)- with her fingers in my face. I could not help but smile as I saw exactly the expressions and behavior my daughter was mimicking at home. I also brought up the fact that the yoga and sign language activities were not being done- she said they just started that the day before. Obviously no one wants to work for this place. It is not clean, they do not have cups for the kids to drink from, and my kid came home with heat exhaustion one day. The nap/rest time has never happened. If you meet the director or the pre-K teacher you will be able to tell rtight away they are both short fused people- not ideal for child care. They released my daughter to her grandfather and never checked his ID or made him sign out- this was after putting my concerns about custody issues IN WRITING to them. When I went searching in through the mess of rooms for my daughter one day- I witnessed such chaos in the other age groups as well. There were sick kids at school, kids sitting on top of eachother- it is a mess. Other parents have said such things as "she is in a mood today" talking about the teachers mood. They are very unprofessional and when I gave my two weeks notice the teacher could not control her temper and I have to remove my child immediately. They did not want to put anything in writing- I had to coherse them to hand write what they were telling me because they were trying to call it "even steven" if I did not give two weeks notice, but they wouldn't give me a recepit or anything- I do not trust them at ALL- it really seemed to me like they are just milking my child like a cash cow and are more concerned about their payment than ANY of the promises or activites in their brochures. I have never had a problem like this anywhere else- usually techers will kind of go thru their procedures (signing kids in and out, checking them over a little for illness or anything) just because its the right thing to do. Parkside does not care at all about these things, and they are filthy, unorganized, the playground equptment is very shotty, and they're terribly unprofessional- and by unprofessional I mean this to the fullest not just as an expression- losing paperwork, not getting immunization records, printing things that are not true, ect. The worst establishment I have ever been to and I cannot belive they pass inspections or background/ behavioral checks. I am in awe at how this place is still running.
