Our son’s primary teacher, and even the assistant teacher in the classroom were exceptional. The unfortunate aspects of our son’s preschool experience had to do with the owner of this establishment (Joellen) and it’s management. Although there isn’t any doubt in my mind that care and love are present at B&B, it became very apparent that they weren’t highly educated in methods of managing behavioral issues. My son struggled from 3yrs-4 yrs managing his emotions and communicating those emotions. He often expressed himself physically or with tantrums (normal/age appropriate). He was removed from the KCR4’s classroom frequently during these times, often sitting in the office environment as he waited for us to pick him up. We were threatened on numerous occasions by staff that our son’s wrap around care would be eliminated and were called numerous times out of a busy work and school schedule to pick him up. One of the times I was called to pick my son up I had to drive across town (this time due to Illness- understandable), switch vehicles with my husband, and drive back across town to B&B. I was 10 minutes late outside of their hour time frame of picking up an ill child. I came as soon as I could and it was during preschool (KCR4’s)time. Joellen (the owner) sent us a tuition bill with a $50 late fee (that’s $5 a minute during a state funded preschool program fee.) When confronted with the fact that we were going to reach out to KRESA about the fee- she removed it. It was clear that this establishment was just looking at my kiddo as a problem child and was making our lives SUPER difficult. Guess what!? Not all kiddos are the same—some are certainly more challenging than others. My son is still a wonderful, loving, inquisitive, boy. This is a long story to post in a review on google. But, we felt it important to share the concerns of our experience so that other families don’t go through the struggle we did (a not so great first time school experience). Because of our concerns and B&B’s perspective regarding our son’s behaviors, we started attending meetings with the B&B staff and KRESA every few weeks, and had to have a behavioral therapist come in. We also had our son in OT outside of all of this to help improve focus/attention span and behavioral challenges. The owner never attended one staff meeting with us and was not in anyway present or communicating regarding our family’s concerns. We were mostly required to communicate with B&B’s director (Melissa), who was very difficult to communicate with (took everything personally). That is, until, we had to get the president of KRESA involved in order to advocate for our son and keep him in the classroom (suddenly the owner appeared in our meetings). We feel, KCR4s is called Pre-K for a reason. It is a formative time in the life of a little who is cognitively developing at a rapid pace. It is SO important to support littles no matter their emotional/social intelligence to help guide them on the path to success for Kindergarten. The director of B&B sent me numerous unprofessional emails during my son’s preschool tenure that included telling me that my son is in no way ready for Kindergarten (you don’t say?) and informing me that my son was making teachers cry (which certainly made me question the staff’s education when it came to 3 and 4 year olds human growth and development). She went on to say that my concerns for my child and the staff’s preparedness to react to my son’s behaviors offended her and her staff. I, however, will never apologize for being the ultimate advocate for my son- especially when it comes to his school preparedness. My son is now thriving having spent the summer at home with friends and family and working with his behavioral therapist. He has been positively supported and encouraged. It is very important to praise and recognize his appropriate behaviors and he has learned wonderful ways of coping and working through strong feelings. He has started Y5s and is on the next stepping stone to Kindergarten which he is sure to be a success.
