my daughter is about to complete kindergarten in a few weeks. I honestly dont know who wrote the above review but this is not the same school my child is in. They are very diverse in what they teach. And the whole thing about the father being the most important person in the family??? That has never been said. My child has enjoyed each and every day at this school.

This school disturbs me more and more everyday. Not only do they have teachers who cannot use proper grammar and spelling, yet they are so cheap! what happened to the days where the students has field trips to places like old sturbridge village to learn about history. Now we have "pilgrims" coming to the school and teaching 6 YEAR OLD CHILDREN, who are too young to even understand. The stuff they are teaching these children is so wrong on so many levels. That "father is the most important person in the family and the mother is just to stay home and raise the children, father is to be most appreciated. That is why the father gets to eat with a shiny plate and the rest of the family do not" I CANNOT EVEN BELIEVE THIS!!!!! The fact we would tell 6 year old children this is today's world disgusts me. More than 60% of these children do not even have fathers around. This school just pays no attention. They want to just occupy time instead of providing your child with the best education. PATHETIC
