Wow! What a horrible school. I wish I would have read these reviews before I placed my child at Carden. FYI: this school has NOT been around since the sixties-completely different school, program, and owners. This is definitely a manipulation of information-school was bought so only the name is from original school. I was quite disappointed in this school and staff, but what I found even more disturbing is that when I came online to write this review, one reviewer told those with negative experiences to reevaluate their perspective. From my experience, it is close to other reviewers...and seems quite abusive. How does one reevaluate abuse and clear it in one's mind? Sorry but that reviewer is either from a time when abuse is acceptable or possibly an owner of the school. I know that when I see inappropriate behavior with my child I don't need to "reevaluate" or accept this abuse. Only advice I can leave...trust your intuition. If it feels wrong, remember you are the protector of your child.
