Inappropriate curriculum, cruelty to children and not friendly to LGBTQ population.

Curriculum: A new curriculum has been instituted which is heavily worksheet-based. You get updates like "X had a great day - he did 3 worksheets". My child freaked out when he forgot his "homework" - he's 3! The curriculum used to be play-based and my son used to come home telling me of all he'd learned. Now he says "I did worksheets" and can't remember what the worksheets were about.

Cruelty to children - my son is dropping his nap but was told that if he didn't go to sleep they would call us and we would throw all his toys in the trash, then he was told that we had indeed thrown his toys away. We were told this by the teacher herself! I had to explain to a 3 year old that his teacher lied to him. When I called to complain I was told that my son was being "defiant" in not wanting to sleep.

Recent changes worry me about their LGBTQ-friendliness. We had 2 openly LGBTQ staff members (one was the director). The director put up unisex bathroom signs and then was summarily demoted to teacher, the signs were removed and the other staff member left within the space of a few weeks. My son has two mothers so this makes me very wary.

In short, this place has gone way downhill. I used to be a promoter and now I've pulled my son because I don't feel like it is a nurturing or supportive environment.

We re very pleased with the relationships that our son has formed with the teachers and peers during his time here at Sunrise. He is happy to go to school, and engage in class, I believe he is getting the best preparation for Kindergarten, and is building a strong foundation of learning that is both fun and enriching.

Here is why you don't want your children here:

1- Teachers don't really care. I would highly advise you to go in the middle of the day to inspect this place. You'll find the teachers chatting with each other, talking or doing anything else but watching or spending a quality time with your children.

2- Managment doesn't care. Honestly it is the worst managment I've ever seen. They don't care about your child. I have talked to the directors several times about how teachers should be spending more quality time with all children but one response from a director was "Talk to the teacher" well I think to talked to the reacher several times before I reach out to you!!

3- Very hostile owner, rude and incompetent. I don't think a person like that should be in a business talking care of children. We emailed back and forth several times about concerns and misunderstanding but Jeff was always rude, hostile and incompetent.

4- They changed 3 Directors in less than a year. Pretty sure it's a management issue. Whether choosing the right person for the job or dierectors couldn't stand the owner's hostility and management style.

5- Don't expect a high quality care in this center. Don't trust that they know what they are doing because they don't. They copy other centers' curriculums to just have something on paper but practicality wise very very poor.

6- All the good teachers I lknew left this place already or planning to leave.

Bottom line, learn from our experience and save yourselve and your children. This was a very painful and frustrating experience ever for me and my wife. I would never wish it on any parents.

By the way, they refused to refund our deposite or honor what we paid intially toward the last 2 weeks. If letting them steal my money to save my children from this, it would be a very low price to pay.

Stay away from this place!!
