There are a lot of people who are very upset with Crystal who is the director of Piper.

My family has two main issues: the favoritism that occurred (which was discovered after she left), and that she was secretly building a totally separate school, Piper, while still employed at Cassidy.

I am writing this review because for people unfamiliar with the situation of Crystal leaving Cassidy, I cannot suggest enough that you talk to Cassidy families to find out more information.

Crystal built a great school in Cassidy, and we were thrilled to be accepted to that school. But Crystal didnt RUN a great school.

What we didnt know, and later found out, was that since early 2013, Crystal was secretly building Piper. She didnt leave Cassidy until the Summer of 2013. And since she left, it was very clear that she had intended to leave many months beforehand.

Since she left, people started talking. And a lot of them, like us, dont like what they found out - mainly about the favoritism shown to a smallish group of families.

It is impossible to adequately explain in a posting, but for the most part, if you talk to the families who have been at Cassidy longer, you are more likely to find those from that smallish group.

If you talk newer families like mine, they overall have a very negative opinion of Crystal. We dont want other people to get blindsided like we were.

I know it sounds dramatic, but this situation really was very dramatic and it was a really stressful summer as families scrambled to put the pieces together of what had happened and what was going to happen.

A preschool is a community of ALL the classes and families, not just some. And when youre paid to run a preschool, you run THAT school. Not build another competing school.

In my opinion, when Crystal decided it was time to leave Cassidy and build Piper, she should have left.

For a person who talks so much about Integrity on her website, she certainly didnt show a lot of it in the manner in which she built Piper.
