My son who is 3 fixing to be 4 is going to a Learning Center and he has been there for almost 2 years now and we have never had any problems. Until they got a new director this past November and it has been going all down hill from there.. None of the teachers like her so they don't stay and the ones that stay, to put is nicely suck at what they are doing. The teacher in my sons room is 8 months pregnant and has no patience. I can understand that but I think if you can't handle the job you should go somewhere else.. They have cameras where you can watch what they are doing all day and well I have been watching for awhile now and she will put the kids in time out and leave them there for at least 20 minutes and to me that is just plain crazy.. They are three. A three year old is going to have no idea why they are in timeout after 20 minutes. So I called the director and she said she would talk to the teachers and see what is going on and why my son is in time out all the time.. Well they said he doesn't listen (he's three, what three year old listens all the time). So I told her I'm not opposed to time out if it is used appropriately. She said she would talk to them some more and get them a timer if she needs to.. Well now my son hates going to school he screams bloody murder and clings on to me when I go to drop him off. I really don't want to have to find a new school for him right now, seeing as how we are having a baby in July then he will start real school in August. I just feel that might be to overwhelming if we change his school, he becomes a big brother and then starts a new school right after that. My question is how long do I try to make things work before I say enough is enough?
