My son attended for 8 months. When he started, it was Mini-Skool. It was then taken over by Small Miracles and re-named El Presidio Day School. It started out chaotic and only got worse.

I never knew what was going on. My son seemed to always be with a different teacher. I heard other parents complain that theirs were as well. When I asked how his day was, pretty much all I got was fine. No details whatsoever. The school promised there would be a binder for each child so parents could look and see what and how they did during the day. That never materialized. They said we would have parent/teacher conferences, but we never did. Once I was told at 6:15 on a Thursday evening that his class was having a party the following day and I needed to bring fruit snacks. I was told there would be a field trip, but there wasn't.

The owners declared that having one code to open the front door is a security problem and they would be giving each family their own code. That never happened. Delivery of school pictures was delayed repeatedly and every time I asked about it, I got a different answer. No one seems to know what's going on.

Once, I dropped off a Christmas gift for my son's teacher. Apparently, the front desk staff opened the candy and gave the card to one of the kids. The teacher never received either. Even worse, the front desk staff told me she received them and I later found out from her that she did not.

At pick up one day, a teacher told me my son did well in a different class that day. I asked the front desk staff if my son was moving to Ms. Sophia's class. She told me Ms. Sophia left with Ms. LaKisha, the director. That was the first I heard there was a new director. Weeks later, I still never met the new director. Two people at the school said the change was permanent, but two parents told me it was temporary. Ms. LaKisha later told me it was temporary and Ms. Sophia was back the next day. Again, no one seems to know what's going on.

All of a sudden one week they took an extra $8 out of my account. I called and asked them to fix it. They said tuition went up. I had no notice of that. The following week, they took out the original amount again. I still don't know what tuition I was supposed to be paying.

The first two sets of spare clothes I provided disappeared completely. The school gave me a credit to reimburse me for the loss, but it was still a hassle. After that, the director put his clothes in the front office so they wouldn't disappear again. Apparently, she didn't tell the teacher though, because one day I found him wearing a wet t-shirt and bathing suit at the end of the day. After asking multiple teachers why, I was finally told he had an accident during nap time and the teacher didn't know where his spare clothes were.

My son came home with a big scrape on his forehead. No one could tell me how it happened. Another parent told me her child had unexplained injuries.

The school is owned by Small Miracles. The only contact information they have listed online is an e-mail address. I e-mailed my concerns to that address and the e-mail bounced back because the e-mail box was full. I found e-mail addresses for two Small Miracles employees in my orientation materials and e-mailed them. They never responded. I asked two different people for an e-mail address where I could reach Small Miracles. They never provided one. No one was willing to address my concerns. But when I e-mailed the same people to tell them I was moving my son to another pre-school, I got a response within 5 minutes that simply said "Thank you." Talk about customer service.

On my son's last day, they couldn't find his sunscreen or bug spray, which they were supposed to be using on him. They also couldn't find his bag. What a mess.
