Any preschool can help a child learn letters, numbers, or shapes. At Carpe Diem, we help children learn how to learn. Our curriculum emerges from the child's interest and through experiential learning. We encourage every child to ask "why?" and discover the answers for themselves. Our programs also include character-building activities that teach the importance of fairness, integrity, and honesty. This approach inspires our students to think more creatively and develop problem-solving abilities

This facility cannot be trusted, especially if your child has a life threatening allergy! They will tell you exactly what you want to hear to get enrollment. Our son has a severe peanut/tree nut allergy. We initially chose Carpe Diem Private Preschool in Southlake because they had a "Peanut Free" policy, which they told us that they were diligent about upholding. Based on their promises, we enrolled our two children. Two days ago, I walked into my sons classroom where there are two students including our son that have a severe life threatening allergy to peanuts. A parent, who was well aware of this policy, managed to bring in two-dozen cupcakes that were manufactured in a peanut/tree nut facility which was written on the packages in big bold black letters. These cupcakes made it through the three front office staff members and then the teachers that fed them to our son! This is like playing Russian roulette with our sons life and the other students life in is classroom. If there is any cross-contamination, a child can pass away faster than they can call 911 or administer an EpiPen. When a parent is told that their child will be safe and is not kept safe, you have to question the ability of this school to keep any child safe. After my discovery, I confronted the Assistant Teacher that was ready to feed him yet another one, as well as, the Director of the school. It was the Directors job to make sure that this product never entered the school and into the bodies of the children affected by this life-threatening allergy. They failed miserably. When we confronted the Director, she said to both my Husband & I that she had no idea that they were in the school nor did she see them come into the school. We took them out that day and then took our son to his Allergist and then to his Doctor. The day after that, we brought them back to the school to discuss the situation further and to give them a letter from his Allergist acknowledging the life threatening situation that they put our child in. The Director then went on to tell us that they are no longer a Peanut Free school and that our child would be safer, which is huge contradiction. They took away their liability and put it on the teachers, as well as, lied to us. If they could not keep my child safe when it was a Peanut Free school how could they possibly keep my child safe when peanut and peanut products can enter freely into their school and into my child randomly. Two days had passed in between the incident and us going back to the school and not one call from the school to see how our child was! Then, a few days ago, I actually called the parent who brought the cupcakes into the school to see how she made it through the school with cupcakes. She told me that she went straight to the Director and received her approval to bring the cupcakes into this classroom. Which means, the Director blatantly lied to my Husband & I when she told us that she had no idea how they got into the classroom. It also states that the very Director that is supposed to implement and adhere to the rules of this school DOES NOT! She completely lied to us with absolutely no remorse. This preschool simply does not care about the safety of our children; they care about their bottom line and reputation! They want the enrollment but could truly care less about the families and children that are enrolled! If an innocent child of three years old cannot be kept safe there then no child is safe there. We have heard things over the past year and half about this school and now we can confirm them. This was, by far, the most severe as our child's life could have been lost as well as his classmates. Child safety should be a priority and at this school, it is not!
