I pulled my son from this school after 2 1/2 weeks. Due to the Director and her Assistant. I did not care for the way the assistant handled a potty accident (the assistant called me at 2 p in the afternoon, I did not receive the message till after 4p, I went immediately to ask what happened, the assistant was loud about how stinky it was and she couldn't clean it all up, I picked up my son and he smelled, I felt sad that he sat for two hours among his peers smelling like that, talk about humiliation!) and when I tried to bring my concerns to the Director, she pretty much told me that if I was unhappy I could find other daycare/preschool and she reminded me that I would be required to give 2 weeks notice and she would have no trouble filling the spot. (I found this to be a bullying statement, she should have just said, shut up and take it.) My decision came the following day when I went to drop my son off and upon seeing the assistant in the play room, he immediately burst into tears and did not want to go further in the room. Also, his new teacher was no longer there after 3 weeks. I was told by another teacher that she herself was the third teacher in a short period of time in a another classroom.

So if you want a stable environment, with staff who will treat your child with care and respect and treat you with care and concern when you bring your concerns to them, keep looking. As of this posting, you will not find it at Westside Preschool/Daycare.

Westside provides quality child care and an excellent learning opportunity. The programming and classroom experience are fullfilling for my child. The teachers are wonderful and caring. In addition, they spend a great deal of time outside, in many types of weather. My son comes home EXHAUSTED. Soon my daughter will also be attending and we look forward to it.

Today, when my daughter was picked up from Westside, we were informed that she is no longer accepted into Westside Day Care. Other than concerns from the staff about her nap habits, there has been no verbal or written indication that there were any behaviorable problems at all. On the contrary, my wife and I have asked the staff at Westside to allow our daughter some quiet time, rather than taking a nap. Other than these informal communications, there has been no indication from the staff at Westside that my daughter has been of any distraction at all. I find it extremely intolerable that when my son picked her up today that he was informed that my daughter was no longer allowed to return. Westside Day Care, I hope you have a good lawyer. You'll be paying not only my time for securing alternative daycare, but also my wages in the process, and additionally any legal fees incurred.
