Great school! I so enjoy the staff and the quality of care my child receives at Libby.

My son attended Libby Lane Early Childhood Center for 2 years. He started Kindergarten this year and his teacher is amazed at all he knows. With our work schedules we were not able to work with him a lot at home so I credit LLECC with teaching him so much. As a social worker I appreciate the safety of the school. I do not want people, even other parents, that I don't know having access or interaction with my child. It is unfortunate but in today's society you can't be too cautious with your children.

When we toured Libby Lane I was informed of this no parents in the classroom rule. My concerns were diminished when I was informed of all the family nights and activities that take place and how I can go into my daughter's class as long as an appointment is made. Wonderful I thought. Well, in reality, in the 8 months there was ONE family event. When I tried to make appointments to visit her class, I was then informed I can only go back during lunch hours. Why wasn't this rule told to me at the beginning? I work downtown KC, my making it for lunch is not possible. \

The theory behind no parents allowed back as I'm told is 1. To keep children safe and 2. to keep children from being upset that other students are getting to go home. I have been a preschool teacher before and if your staff cannot keep kids safe through 4 doors to access a child, 2 of which are locked, cameras, and staff sitting behind a glass window... then there are bigger issues to be concerned about. And secondly, when a child becomes upset about wanting to go home, they can very easily be re-directed. A staff member being radio-ed to go get a child and their backpack at the end of a day... you don't think kids have figured out yet that that child is going home to their parents?\

\

The gates at the doors of Libby Lane are not to keep the children safe but to keep the parents out. \

Never met, or even saw the director of Libby Lane. She also runs the K-12 portion of Libby Lane, but it appears she has taken on more than she can handle. I have met other parents of Libby Lane and they commented on what a wonderful place it used to be. But over the years all the good teachers have left and the place is falling apart. \

\

The vibes that Libby Lane gives off is give us your money and get your child through the front door. Teacher A on 2 separate occasions literally attempted to grab my daughter by her upper arm and drag her through the door. A second teacher actually just shoved my daughter on her upper back to get her through the door once. These issues are something I would have liked to have spoken to a director about, but the director of Libby Lane is not accessible. \

Upon my meeting with the assistant director when I told her I have no idea how Maggie is doing at school or what her days are like since once again, parents are not allowed in the classroom and her daily review consists of Maggie had a great day!, the assistant director said Maggie is such an easy kid, we didn't know you needed to know about her days. I took 2 things from that statement: 1. How would I know she is easy if no one tells me anything about her school life. 2. So only the bad children get reports and the easy children are ignored. During this meeting with the assistant director I also brought it to her attention that I was never even given the opportunity to meet Maggie's teachers when we started. I had to a request a meeting, which was so awkwardly held out in the front area where parents wait to pick up their kids. With my child only being 3, I thought it important to introduce myself, and I as well should at least know the face of the person who my daughter is spending her days with. This practice is even allotted to the parents of kids in high school. The assistant director's retort was didn't you get to meet them when you toured. No, no I didn't actually. I SAW a teacher but there was zero conversation and interaction, being that I was just a parent that was touring at the time.\

\

While on the subject of her teachers, during the summer it appears one of Maggie's teachers went down to part time and there was another teacher in her class two days a week. Parents were never informed of this. Who our children's teachers are is something parents should know. We should have been informed. That is not an astronomical request, this should be basic knowledge. This shows the overall issue with Libby Lane: Zero communication. We are not allowed behind locked doors and we truly have no idea what is going on behind those doors. \

Don't be fooled by the pinterst look of the school, it's a horrible, unfriendly place with the rude staff. My daughter, who use to run into her old daycare and didn't want to leave, cower in a corner and cry at night that she did not want to go to Libby Lane, and that was after 8 months.
