Great center, our 9 month old has been going there since 6 weeks old and she loves it there. They're very attentive and fun. The center is colorful and there's always music playing.

Please read before sending your child to Jardin. Our youngest child attended Jardin for the last year. This brilliant, curious, growing 5 year old child climbed a fence. We were notified of this and we spoke to our son about how to be safe at school when playing on the playground.

40 hours later, we received this voice message:
"This is Victor calling you from Jardin Spanish Immersion Academy. We are calling to let you know that based on the incident yesterday, with (child) exposing himself to danger, Jardin has decided to terminate the services with your family. We will be be sending you all of (child's) items in his cubby via mail this week."

We know it might be easy for you [the reader] to judge us as parents, but both of our children have had successful experiences in other school settings. We moved to Jardin a year ago because it is very close to our house. We noticed some changes in behavior the past few months as staff changed over, but we felt we had a good relationship with the lead teacher.

Our child climbed a fence. He is 5 years old, and kids his age climb. In our opinion, this is not grounds to expel a 5 year old from school.

In response to the request we made to have a meeting following the message noted above, Jardin sent us this reminder:

We have pasted below our Jardin's right to termination as reference from our parent handbook page. 26. We would like to remind you that your family have signed the parent contract in agreement to all of Jardin's policies at the beginning of enrollment.

Termination

We reserve the right to terminate our child care relationship at any time and without prior notice.
Any such termination may be initiated for child behavioral reasons, other reason
(including but not limited to non-payment of tuition.
or no reason. In such as case , we will not be entitled
to payment , or to retain payment earlier received.
With respect to any full days on which we have not provided
care for your child. If we terminate our child care relationship and
if you earlier paid tuition in advanced, we will promptly reimburse you with that portion '
of your earlier payment (s) that we are not entitled to retain under this policy.

This private entity has the right to terminate services for any reason. Our family was notified at 5:30 PM the day before a work day of this termination, without warning or consultation. To be clear, we spoke with our child's teachers/staff 5 TIMES between the incident and the surprise termination. The day after this incident occurred - the same day we received notification of termination - we received first a hand report that our child had behaved well and had a good day. Jardin's choice to exercise its "right" to terminate "at any time" without a doubt blindsided our family.

From our family to yours, please fully consider the impact on our community when a school is allowed to terminate services because a child is being a child. All children deserve to have their strengths and gifts lifted up each day. We will not recommend this center to our family, friends, or neighbors.
