We just pulled my daughter out of this school. Extremely overpriced with constant tuition increases and fundraisers. There is a summer camp fee (buys a shirt) plus a weekly summer fee added into your tuition. I still can't figure out what for - my daughter had water day once a week which consisted of a water hose being layed out for the kids to play in. Other summer projects included painting or the teacher putting toys in ice or jello and letting the kids get them out to play with them - nothing worthy of an extra fee. The final straw for us was when there was an incident on the playground which I was told nothing about. All I knew is I had an upset 3yr old. When I contacted the school, I was told there was an incident and I should have been contacted immediately (which wasn't done) and an incident report should have been done (it wasn't). I have all of this is writing.

My son went here for a few months. The tuition is way over priced for the amount of "learning" he received.
Every morning and afternoon I would pick him up they would be sitting at the table playing with table toys, I would alternate times of drop off and pick up to see if it was a timing thing but, 80% of the time that's all they did. The teachers are 1 per room which plays a huge role in previously stated situation bc one person can only do so much!
Management will dazzle you in the beginning, but, the shine definitely fades, they are rude, not very helpful and insincere. My son actually choked on a sucker (he'd gotten as a treat on a holiday) on the way out of the door, the principle stood there watching us scramble to help my son AND CLEAN HIS VOMIT UP, she offered no help and seemed completey unconcerned.
I second the germs and illness, my son was CONSTANTLY sick.
In my opinion, this place just sucks!
It's truly a shame bc I could walk my son there we live so close but, I now drive 15 minutes and pay almost 50% less for 100% better care!

Our eldest son has been at Chesterbrook over 2 years now. Most of the teachers are friendly, but some are rude and overbearing (short red hair lady). Both of our children are currently enrolled, stay sick constantly, come home hungry and wet every day, and have new injuries and bruises weekly. Save your vacation days for sick days.... you will need them. Rates increase on a regular basis, there are always additional surprise "activity fees" (they get sprayed by a water hose on water play day), and get free visitors from local emergency services. Although rates increase on a regular basis, and they always ask for activity fees, they still have fund raisers for the school. They state they employ educational programs, but most of the paperwork and notes that are sent home have horribly misspelled words and kindergarten grammar.

My son has been in the program since June 2012 and we love it! The staff are extremely friendly and work well with the children! I can walk in and every staff member we pass has a genuine greeting stating my child's name-even the ones who aren't in his room. He has learned a tremendous about of communication skills and vocabulary while attending so its more than them just "watching the kids all day" they actually work with them and make learning fun (At the end of each month you receive some of the art work and photos of your childs learning activities). He has picked up a few germs but nothing unusual for a child in daycare which has been pretty impressive! But I honestly have nothing negative to say about the program! Absolutely love it!

Just took my child out of the program. The idea is great but my son picked up every germ he could find. It got to the point where He was going once a week and my husband and I missed a lot of work. Wasn't worth watching my 9 month be so sick for so long. The children were crawling on the floor where people had walked on with their wet muddy shoes. My son's diaper was on so tight his legs were ice cold due to lack of circulation.
