I do not agree with the complete review. The curriculums are fine since it is a day care. I do not believe the children are going head out to college when they are done with Pre-K so I think it is best to let the children have fun & learn as they are right now. I always say if parents are not happy with day care, then one of the parents should stay home & raise the child. I understand that many parents have to work due to vehicle payments, house payments, bills, etc and when that happens; the children are the ones being left under the care of these facilities. It is up to parents to decide what is best for their kids & yes children need to socialize but at an early age; they should not be pushed to being academically prepared at such a young age. Therefore, these curriculums are all age appropriate. I have seen some teachers get a little strict with some children but then again; they are the ones looking after them while we go to work & children need to be in good behavior when not under their parents supervision. It is up to the parents the manners enforced at home. Sadly, there are children that need a little more attention than others do to when it comes to behaving properly when around other adults.

As a parent that has sent 2 children to the waterford location, I can speak highly of the director, Ms. Beth and a majority of the staff that work directly with the kids. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the owner, Mr. Jeff. He has proven through his behavior on more than one occasion that his number one priority is his profit margin and bottom line. It is truly sad as I know several parents that have pulled and are planning on pulling their kids from this academy due to his lack of interest in the children. The sad thing is that he does not care because he still has a waiting list however it will be interesting to see how that changes when 2 new Ladybird Academy's open in Avalon and on Lake Underhill - on both ends of Waterford Lakes. \r\nSpeaking candidly, I loved the teachers and the director but in the end, they must take direction from the owner, and he is not what I would recommend.

Pros: Caring Teachers/ Great Staff/Location

Cons: Owner does not really care for kids well being

My children have both been to Star Child since they were toddlers. One is getting ready to graduate from PreK. They both have learned so much. My son is ending JrPreschool and knows all letters and sounds, my daughter is leaving PreK in a couple of weeks and knows how to read. They both sing songs together about days of the week, and the alphabet in French and Spanish. The teachers are all so friendly. I couldn't ask for anything more. The other lady is crazy, they have a ton of role playing activities (such as dress up and kitchen. In fact they are my daughters favs). In Jr Preschool, Preschool and PreK for sure (don't remember about Toddler classes)

Pros: location, friendly teachers, curriculum, clean

I found this school to be one of the best i have ever been in. It was very clean and the taechers and children seemed very happy and engaged in activities. I love the foeign languages and sign language. Ms. Beth the director gave an awsome tour. She ansewered all of our questions and seemed genuine in her excitement about the school. I would highly recommed this school.

The daycare seems nice looking form the outside in. My experience was horrible at this daycare. The owners in particular Jeff is only concerned with turning a profit. He has no real concern for the children or their development. The turnover is horrible because he treats his employees like trash! He is very rude and he gives this franchise a horrible name. \r\n\r\nBecause of my experience at the school I decided to go back to school to earn my child development degree as well as my state Child Care Director's credentials. So for that I am thankful. I can tell know that I have the education to evaluate the actual curriculum of the daycare, it is lacking many things. Most importantly creative thinking. Which is extremely important in early childhood development. If you tour this school take notice that there is not any centers with play kitchens, dress up, or any role playing activities. Also notice the lack of arts and crafts. Instead you will find, (especially if you go in in the afternoon) afternoon teachers YELLING at the kids. \r\n\r\nI would use great caution if you are considering this school. While it's pretty it definitely is not the best!
