I toured Write Start Learning Center in July 2023, along with several other preschools, and was initially drawn to the bright colors and spacious classrooms the school had to offer. I appreciated that they advertised their approach of working with children who struggled with nap time and their redirection-based method for students facing challenges. Additionally, I liked that they boasted small classroom sizes with two teachers in each room. My child officially started in August, but her time at the school was cut short after only 8 weeks when she was deemed a "safety hazard." They did refund the future weeks' payments, but I had to pay for the full week, even though my daughter attended for only 5 hours. Soon after starting, I noticed that some of the school's advertised strengths turned out to be weaknesses. I can't pinpoint exactly what happened during her time there, but my daughter struggled with forming connections and exhibited aggressive behaviors like name-calling, both towards others and herself. These behaviors were rarely observed prior to her attendance, especially under the care of her first teacher, Mrs. Meghan, but became consistent with Ms. Aviance and Jamey in the 3's room. The frequent teacher changes during those 8 weeks likely didn't help the situation. I'm saddened that her first school experience was far from great, but I'm also relieved that she was given the opportunity to start over. The staff at the new school was understanding and committed to assessing my daughter's behavior and providing resources to support her. Her transition to the new school was a bit challenging at first, but she quickly adapted, with minimal incidents. She is warmly welcomed with hugs and smiles, creating a far more positive and nurturing environment than her previous experience at Write Start. It should also be noted that there are only two teachers in the classroom during high volume hours. I observed the class more times than not at ratio 1 to 15 (which would not be smaller classroom sizes) as initially advertised. There are even times in the morning where ratio sizes are questionable of if they are being followed. Less

The frequent teacher changes during those 8 weeks likely didn't help the situation. Following our departure from Write Start, my daughter started at a new school with similar classroom sizes and structures, and she is now thriving. I'm saddened that her first school experience was far from great, but I'm also relieved that she was given the opportunity to start over. I initially approached this school as my second choice among the centers I had toured. The staff was understanding and committed to assessing my daughter's behavior and providing resources to support her if needed. Her transition to the new school was a bit challenging at first, but she quickly adapted, with minimal incidents. She loves attending the new school, where she is warmly welcomed with hugs and smiles, creating a far more positive and nurturing environment than her previous experience at Write Start. Less

I tried for over a year to get my child into Write Start. So grateful for Mrs. Nycole finally having an opening for my toddler. The facility is top notch - clean, secure and welcoming. Tuition can be paid via website. Teachers use Brightwheel App to communicate and provide daily reports. My child is finishing her first week at Write Start and I am so happy. Ms. Meghan and Ms. Ariel are wonderful with my child. They greet her at the door. They connect with her on her level. I barely know them however I can see they love teaching and the kiddos in their room. Thank you so much for taking care of my Vivie. I wholeheartedly recommend Write Start. Less
