So here's my honest review of appletree and how they failed my child(and me). Upon visiting the center, I love the atmosphere, the outdoor space, the one on one interaction that I thought existed. After coming from a previous facility that fell quite short after their teacher resigned with no notice, and the classroom left in utter chaos, my child experienced being bit twice, scratched and punched within 1.5 weeks. So I looked towards appletree. Now he was asked to leave after only 3 days of being in the class. First day, my child acted out, pushed boundaries by hitting a class mate and his teacher on the hand. Quite normal for his age (3) and being in a brand new environment. Overall, going by the progress report he was given, he was "happy, active, playful and cooperative". Day two, early on, after dropping him off, I was instantly notified that he bit another child and left a mark. We discussed I would address the situation and I will work on ways to help move his transition along in a more positive manner. Day three, I was notified a few hours after I left the facility that my child hit another kid over toys ( mind you I stayed an hour monitoring from a distance how my child interacted within the class) I saw him listening at the best of his ability, playing nicely with fellow classmates, sharing but still being shy. I also noticed teachers on their phones texting and doing paperwork while the children played in their "centers" and not interacting with the children much at all. Now, it is wrong the way my child handled the situation with the toys, but he was still learning his new environment. Each progress report I did receive stated once again overall my child was "happy,playful, active and cooperative". As a parent, I went the extra mile to help by setting up a sticker reward book for him that the teachers could use to reward him for good behavior at the end of the day, and help move his adjustment along.being told that's a "great idea" and they would comply, I thought great, moving forward, a new day....wrong when I received a phone call saying they'd have to let him go only after 3 days. The director failed to read he would only be there 4 days not 5 btw. Also that having the sticker reward book would be "unfair" to the other children who do things and know routine already. I informed them previously that my child was a preemie (2months early) and that he is not quite on the same page as other children his age. So after reading on their website that they are able to help/work with children with possible disabilities, I thought they'd work with me more. But honestly, didn't seem like they even wanted to work with me, when I was making an effort on my part as his parent. There's much more I could say, but honestly they left me with empty excuses and throughly upset. For the final note, let me be clear, I am not one to say "not my child" when I hear he made a mistake, but I do know my child, and they did not give him the chance to show how wonderful he is.
