My third child is attending the Pre-K.
Never had a problem, and happy with the program.
It's a shame Mrs. Donegan left. She will be missed

That is a shame about Mrs. Donegan.I know my son misses her.Anyone know why she left so abruptly?It was a surprise.I'm happy to hear others are satisfied w/the program.I just don't know what I will do w/the upcoming "semester" if I will keep him going or not.Its really frustrating having the teacher come out everyday in front of kids who are excited,waiting for class and saying not so nicely "if i don't have a sub,then no class!"I understand there is a need for a sub sometimes but to put a guilt trip on parents ....sometimes I just wonder why I'm paying tuition for the way things are ran.that's all.
Husband Got a New Job

Her husband got a job, but it had no benefits.
She needed to go get a job with benefits.
There was a letter about the sub issue.
Per State rules, they need to have a teacher and a helper at all times.
It would be nice if she used a different tone.

Her tone is one of my issues with her.
I did get a letter about the $15 pay thing but not one about why Mrs. D left.We were out sick once or twice during that time though.Benefits are vital...
I understand about the whole state thing -I was a teachers aide in a special ed. school.I just don't like how they are making the parents feel responsible for if class is going to happen that day or not.Its the attitude,not the issue for me.I go to school full time at night and run a business from home and alot of the moms in my class time are home with other toddlers or newborns and alot are pregnant.
Hopefully they will find someone soon and this will be resolved.:o)
