My son attended childrens playhouse part time for about a year and a half. He started kindergarten this past fall and Barbara (the owner) recommended having him attend full time for the summer so he could get accustomed to a routine outside of home and have opportunities to build social skills. She suggested I apply for the Essential Worker's Childcare Scholarship to help cover the additional cost and thankfully I was approved.

My son had a difficult time in the general Ed kindergarten class and part of that of that was due to the larger class size. We immediately began the process for special education evaluation which he was deemed eligible for. The childcare scholarship covered about 95% of the cost for full time tuition at Childrens Playhouse and it was a twelve week program. When my son started school, there was still 3 weeks left for the program so I brought him to daycare on one of his days off. Apparently his behavior was less than stellar that day because I got an earful from Barbara when I picked him up. On our way out she handed me his pillow, blanket, extra clothes and any other belongings he had left there during the 2 years he attended. At first I thought she sent everything home to be washed but later that evening, it occurred to me that she may have given me all of his belongings because he wasn't allowed to go back. I texted Barbara to clarify and, sure enough, that's exactly why she sent all of his things home. She continued listing everything my son did wrong that day and had the nerve to say that he was creepy.

I was shocked and angry. I contacted her and asked her to refund us the money she would be getting from the childcare scholarship for the remaining 3 weeks so I could use it for another daycare. Not only did she refuse to do so, but she essentially threatened me by saying that a parent had to be employed full time to be eligible for the scholarship which I was not at the time. I filled out the application with 100% honesty so her threat was of no concern to me but I still can't believe she banned my special needs child from her daycare, called him creepy and collected the remaining 3 weeks of payment even though he was no longer attending.

This is all about money for you...not the wellbeing of your poor son who in my opinion, is suffering with behaviors because of your poor parenting! What makes you think you are entitled to scholarship money?? I did NOT collect the remaining three weeks of that scholarship either and I have proof!! Are you aware that I can and will bring legal action against you for intentionally writing this False review!I have documentation from the Essential Workers Childare Scholarship to PROVE that what you are saying is absolutely NOT TRUE! You have the audacity to write an unconcionable review like this after what we went through with you and your son!!?? You Steven, NEVER applied for the scholarship in the first place, your girlfriend Kristina Genovese falsely did and I have documentation to prove it! I would not put up with your insolence then and I refuse to put up with it now. If you do not remove this slanderous review in 24 hours I will have no choice but to take legal action and I will!! See you in court!
