Horriable Owner and Directors !! – The teachers at CMP are all wonderful, helpful and expereinced in teaching. The owner ' Pauline " is VERY rude, EXTREMELY pushy and VERY fake !!
HORRIABLE communication from the 2 directors, Donna and Jeanna P.
Both owner and directors are only concerned with how much money the privetly owned preschool brings in.
They do NOT inforce their rules and guidelines in their parents handbook. They allow children to come and stay at school sick. Staff is treated unfailry and poorly. Same snack all the time...they don't promote children to different foods for snack. They stick to the same thing all of the time such as goldfish, gram crackers, animal cookies and cheezits and fresh fruit and rotate the snacks each day.
The owner is very cheap in replacing outside toys, buckets, and shovels....
If I could I would give full 5 stars for the teachers who work there. I would give a big fat 0 stars for the directors and owner. WAY over priced !!!!!
Wonderful Preschool – We have had our children here for the past 3 years and have been delighted with CMP. Every teacher we have had has been patient, caring and has helped our children grow, learn and develop. Jeanna Polchow, one of the directors, is particularly wonderful.
CMP was recommended to us by multiple friends whom we trust and we are pleased that we followed the recommendations.
Please double check before you make up your final decision – From the very beginning, I felt welcomed; also this preschool had clean facility, so I have to give one stay for this.
The directors and all staff there were always smiling when I paid tuition, but when I tried to communicate with the staff and director after some incident happened, everything was changed. teacher said she was right , also she was busy for classroom and had no time to talk with me. Finally I got a chance to talk with director Donna, she was not patient at all since she was busy also, she had to do sth else during our conversation so I had to wait and wait, Very rude attitude like candyrama said below.
The final conclusion is that they took absolutely no responsibility for all of the accidents, no matter it happed in the classroom or in the playground, everybody in the school were right except kids and parents. Please double check before you make up your final decision.
Rude, Rude, Rude Director – If I could give zero stars, I would. I had a verbal agreement with the director, Donna Taconi, regarding doing my field experience at the kindergarten. I had not heard from her after sending an official follow-up email. I went to the school to speak with her, and she was stand-offish toward me. She plainly stated that she couldn't do it and that she was too busy. I informed her that as an experienced instructor and licensed teacher, I could certainly help. Her reply was, "I'm busy, and you're not my priority." We'd heard wonderful things about the school and would have sent our children there. But after that encounter, no way.
Great School – My 3 year-old sons loves it!!! The playgrounds are safe, clean and interesting for the kids, the classes have variety of toys and books and often change. The kids cook, do art and learn alot.The teachers we have just love children. It's a great school for working moms as it runs until 6PM and there are still kids there when I pick up my son at 4-5PM.
