Staten Island, NY
My daughter attended Excel for 2 years. I thought the classrooms in the basement were gloomy. (I didnt see it but another parent recently told me she saw mold on the ceilings.) I did witness a teacher changing a baby while her whole class was sitting on the bathroom floor!..and the whole school frquently smelled like dirty diapers.I enrolled her again because I figured the UPK class would be better and it was.The class was bright and cheery, the teachers were nice.However, she obviously did not learn enough. Her Kindergarten teacher assumed she didn't attend pre-school! She couldn't believe that she did and when I told her it was Excel...she shook her head like she understood.
