I can not stress enough how much I absolutely love this child care center. I've been in child care for almost 19 years now and this is the best center ! Both my 15 year old and now my 1 year old have attended Newark Christian . Thank you Laura, Tanisha , Kiara , Ms Debbie and all the staff I know Im not the easiest mom but youve all gone above and beyond for my sweet baby boy.
I absolutely love this daycare! My child enjoys going to daycare everyday. It is a wonderful facility that will allow your child to learn and grow everyday. All of the staff members treat not only the child but the parents like family. I strongly recommend Newark Christian Childcare to anyone looking for a safe, friendly and nurturing environment for their child.
This school simply is amazing! So many skills-building resources at your disposal. Overall, this is a great school to attend.
1) These are children not adults. The ridigity stifles the joy in learning. (2) Excessive homework and testing is an issue. The many pull-outs for specials leads to classroom disruptions and gaps in teaching. Parents are left to pick up the pieces and do the teaching at home, (3) technology is behind but slowly evolving, (4) STEM?? Many local public, independent, and parochial schools have secured grants and successfully implemented STEM for the last couple years, (5) there are some miserable, burned-out teachers who are mean (6) Bullying is a problem that gets ignored in all grades (7) The head of lower school is removed and tends to devalue the concerns of the children. (8) There is special treatment to those families who give sizable funds--a school-wide, mass email "gently" outed those parents who chose not to give. (9) Some teachers are so tight with admin that it is difficult for them to remain objective. Scratch the surface and really look at the issues. There are other quality academic programs out there.
The school has deteriorated significantly over the last several years. The school is in dire straits financially and enrollment has been continuously declining. What once was a reasonably structured program that allowed for creativity and for different types of students has now become ridiculously draconian. When parents have tried to talk to the administrators about what they feel is working and not working, the school becomes very defensive and refuses to budge. If students do not conform exactly to the program and to how the school feels such student should be progressing, both the parent and the student (as horrible as it sounds) are made to feel that there is something wrong with the student. I have even seen this occur with 3-4 year olds where, if a teacher feels the student is not "worth the trouble", the teacher and the school not only completely ignore the child moving forward, but go so far as to make the child feel badly about himself or herself. There is no wiggle room and no discussion. I could not in good conscience recommend this school to any parent, especially with so many far better options in the area.
All three of my children attend TLK. I love this place and what they do for my children. All of the staff are great and greet you with a smile. I never worry when I go to work. I know they are being well taken care of. I am also very impressed with what my children have learned while there, far and above any other center. I know that the teachers at TLK are making sure my kids will be super succesful in school. Thanks TLK, you are awesome!
