I'm just seeing this.
what daycare center did you end up going to?
My children did go there for a year and then we went back to a nanny. A nanny is just a better fit for our youngest.
But, as far as Elmhurst academy, I liked it overall. I found that they were outside a lot. One big problem I had was with my oldest. He was in the kindergarten. Everything seemed to be going fine. He's my oldest, so I wasn't calibrated with what a child should be doing academically. I was in for a rude awakening when he went to Elmhurst public schools for first grade.
My son didn't know how to read because Elmhurst Academy hadn't taught him at all!!!
I didn't know that he should be reading. Well, luckily, he's smart and quickly caught up and now he's in second grade and doing well.
When I told the school, their answer to me was, "we told you you should continue to read to him over the summer." Ha! Of course, we read to him. We've been reading to him since he was born. That doesn't automatically teach every child to read!
So, overall, they were nice enough and the kids were happy enough, but they did not prepare them academically for the rigors of Elmhurst public schools.
