Bronx >Silver Spoons Day Care
Silver Spoons take pride in the quality
care that it provides to neighboring communities. With 11 years of existence, the daycare has promoted accelerated learning, safe environment, and plentiful meaningful experiences for children. The directors, Mrs. Edmondson and Dr. Brujan, have a combined 21 years of early childhood experience. Expertise of such kind is a sure indicator that children are learning, protected, and most of all, having fun every day in school. It is critical to instill love and compassion to children at their most delicate young age…. And that starts at home and preserved at Silver Spoons!
Upon enrolling in Silver Spoons, parents are given a set of parent responsibilities and student rules to remain enrolled in the day care. This system is in place to promote effectiveness and transparency. Among several points of interests, Silver Spoons makes a great effort to prevent bullying in all its forms (i.e., social, verbal, and physical). The New York State Department of Mental Hygiene and Child Protective Services has recognized the daycare for addressing bullying and protecting children from 2010 – 2012. The daycare’s focus on bullying is because 1 in 7 students in Grades K – 12 is either a bully or a bully victim (National Statistics for Bullying Children in Schools, 2012). And though bullying is an international problem, New York ranks as one of the five worst states for bullying (Bullying Statistics, Cyber-bullying Statistics, School Bullying Statistics, 2009). Allowing bullying or intimidation is detrimental and traumatic for any child, at any age, for any reason.
Therefore, Silver Spoons will not tolerate, protect, nor harbor children or families that have difficulty cooperating with others. It is well staffed with trained individuals who love and protect children. It has daily records and anecdotes geared to red flag inappropriate behaviors from parents and their children. Interventions are immediately put in place to address the misconduct. However, some failed attempts are due to bullies and their parents claiming that they are the victims. Unfounded claims and unsuccessful interventions result in the removal of the child and best wishes to their next school. Schools and daycares are often found in these dilemmas but it is critical to focus on truths and supported evidence. The ultimate priority is the safety of all children.
We invite and encourage anyone who would like to become part of the Silver Spoons family. We can be contacted at 718.543.5373 and/or at email@example.com We also welcome inquiries from daycares and parents who struggle with their children being bullied. We can suggest strategies and interventions that might make their child’s school experience more fruitful.
Silver Spoons Management
I am a first grade teacher for the Department of Education and my daughter attends Silver Spoons daycare. As a mom, I used to worry about all the things that I have to teach my child. Kindergarten is not what is used to be. But at Silver Spoons I donâ??t have to worry anymore. Many of the strategies and standards that I have learned in my career are implemented at Silver Spoons. It is an incredible relief to know that I can team up with Mrs. Edmondson and help my child improve her speech and learn the fundamentalsâ?¦ and I do not mean ABCâ??s and coloring. I mean actual reading, arts and crafts, plays, science, and about the community. My daughter is really learning at Silver Spoons. She receives instruction that is geared to her development and age appropriate homework that makes her feel successful. They even have parent teacher conferences to help set academic goals for all the children. It has been such a great experience that I wish I had known about Silver Spoons when I was enrolling my 6 year old son in day care years ago. Ultimately, I did a great thing for my daughter enrolling her at Silver Spoons.
Silver Spoon Day Care. My son attended Silver Spoon Day Care. I feel that my son had a great experience while attending this school. He improves his vocabulary and enhanced his social skills. The Silver Spoon Day Care staffs including Ms. Brujan were professional and supported. In fact Ms. Brujan was always there every time I went to pick my child in the afternoon. Ms. Edmonson was always available to answer any questions or concerns that I have about my child. In my opinion, The Silver Spoon Day Care is an organized setting for children. I highly recommend Silver Spoon Day Care for any child in the Riverdale vicinity.
GREAT DAYCARE CENTER.
Hi , my name is Mrs. Dietrich and my daughter attended silver spoons daycare for 3 years without an incident,
I did not witness or experience any of the allegations in this person's post. My child was in the daycare during the same period of time as the author's child and I saw none of the things she wrote about. In fact her son was the bully of the daycare and was kicked out of the daycare for his behavior and his parents inability to fix his behavior. This sounds like sour grapes to me.
My son attended this Day Care/Preschool
almost a year ago to date. I feel the need to post my review due to the fact that my son still recalls the negative experiences which he endured while attending this school. I am not sure if things have changed with Silver Spoons since but I wanted to share my experience and opinion.
Very good Riverdale location. Excellent enrichment programs for the children but don't be fooled. The Director, Ms. Brujan, is an educated and qualified childhood educator; however, she did not run the program and was rarely on the premises. The assistant director Mrs. Edmonson, was nurturing, caring and taught during the day but was in and out of the facility throughout the day. In my opinion, there were not enough â??qualifiedâ?? staff members in the facility to tend to the children's needs. There was no structure during play time, very limited space in the facility for the children to interact; kids were often left to fend for themselves since they weren't supervised properly. My child was often bullied and would regularly come home with bite marks that staff members were not aware of due to lack of supervision. In the end, my child reported that staff members Ms. Tavarez and Ms. Santana were physically abusive as a means of discipline. They all denied accusations. The director of the program tried to cover up and was caught in lies. She was also unprofessional and vindictive since I reported them to ACS regarding my child's claim.
In closing, I regret that my that my son was ever enrolled in this facility. It bothers me that I trusted them with my baby. Children who are that young are not always going to tell you what goes on, they usually lash out and misbehave as a form of communication. I was glad when my son spoke up, I just wish he would have told me sooner. I hope that this review is helpful. It definitley would've prevented me from enrolling my son to begin with.
