I love my son's toddler teacher who is above awesome (Ms. Kelser); however the school could use some tweaking. The administration seems to be very disorganized with handling business. The keypad on the door is always broken the center could use a janitorial cleaning and the administrative staff could be better at handling daily issues. Of course the classoom aides are slightly "hood-rat ish" but that comes with the Philadelphia territory and the job. Coming from a horrible daycare experience this is by far NOT the worst; however it could be better.

The teachers here have been great so far but the administration is another story. They are very disorganized and unprofessional with how they handle everyday business. It seems like they care more about money than anything else which is evident in the school's appearance and disrepair. The also do not have a cleanly crew that comes in apparently so it is very dirty inside as well.
Great for play!!!!! But I can leave my child home if all I wanted was for him to play!!!!!!!!!! To expensive for your child to only PLAY.... Not Enough ACADEMICS!!!
The center would have great potential if there were a better quality of teachers and assistants.
Although we love the teachers and my child has made great friends the administration and the attention to quality and regulations by the administration have made this an undesirable place to be. Most times the security keypad doesn't work and the door is open for anyone with no monitoring. The ratios are always way off - averaging what looks like about 30 toddlers to 2 caregivers. 1 week notices for field trips that parents must accompany their child on because of age.... whenever parents try to address the concerns they get bulldozed with gladhandling. pretty sad because this has the opportunity to be a GREAT daycare and school but looking at $ instead of quality has damaged its chances.
Too much play for the price with unskilled aids caring for toddlers. No homework for toddlers just play play and more play. Need to invest in high quality teachers instead of the typical uneducated hood rats.
I have reentered my girls here for camp and the upcoming school year for K & 2nd grades and my son for pre-school. I am continually satisfied with the staff support and the great teachers here. My girls attended as little ones and I am more than satisfied with this school. I have recommended it many times over for parents looking for more than just a babysitting service and those looking for a solid place where their children are safe and can grow. Prodigy rocks!
If you are looking for your child to have a lot of FUN and/or looking for flexibility as far as hours of operation then this is your school !! If you are looking for more focus on just academics then you may want to do more research! Overall this is a nurturing environment...
My oldest daughter been going here for four years and she aboustley loves it. I recently just had a baby and this baby will be attending too..... Thumbs up to all the staff at this school .
My son loves this school! He felt comfortable from the moment he walked through the doors. He is almost two yrs old and has been attending since he was 18mts old. He is learning a lot! Prodigy is a safe clean and loving environment. It is also diverse.
