General School Comments: From the Parents

    This is one of the worst call them-selves "pre-school/headstart" site on the south side of Chicago. If you are looking for a child-friendly center with appropriate role models, professional staff and that create an atmosphere for learning, this is NOT the place. Their materials are outddated. There is no structure in the classrooms. New staff appear every month--making it impossible for children to form healthy relationships. The center does not even allow for an open door policy for parents to come in & visit!
