Blooooody hell. This sounds like the preschool version of Sea Org. Is this woman a Scientologist? No conversing with other parents? No questioning at all? Being kicked out for being concerned? Ticks allllll of those boxes.

The exorbitant tuition and the fact that Renae ejects innocent children from their school and can’t negotiate peacefully with their parents would send me running to the closest free playgroup/co-op.

I’m a bit torn by this piece. I live next to King Middle School. It was once a hotbed for prepubescent criminals. The kids would ditch school and hide behind apartment buildings.

Not just that but besides paying exorbitant tuition a lot of these families gave SERIOUS money as well as time to make that school the yuppie paradise that it is. Of course they're going to be upset when you start acting like a mix of Stalin & Regina George from Mean Girls.

If a salesperson were to email me with those kinds of grammatical mistakes, I wouldn’t give them a second thought. People let this person be in charge of childcare?

What is the life of someone who can spend $18000 a year on preschool. What is life like for their children? How much will their birthday parties, cars, weddings cost? Other schooling and extracurriculars? It's baffling to me the kind of money some people have. Wow.
