This place is all about the money and that’s it. They pulled me to task about dropping my son 10 mins early outside his designated times, even though I picked him up 1.5hrs early every day and wanted me to pay for a full day to make up for 10 minutes in the morning.
I always had to ask for updates about his progress even though he was new, nothing was offered. We lasted a month before pulling out. Told the teachers we were starting to toilet train and NOTHING was done to assist with this.
