It badly need improvements with their employees. Most staff are good but the nurse... I don't even know if she's qualified. A rash that subsided needs 911? In the information of the child it states skin asthma and allergies, it's not even anaphylactic reaction just a simple rash in the arm that subsided immediately & is considered a dangerous sotuation and need the kids to be pulled out from class?
