Surprised they haven't been shut down. The owner/director is uninvolved and the needs of the students are not top priority for him. The financial stability of this employer is questionable at best. Most of the staff, although lacking in qualifications and higher education, were caring and had good intentions toward the students at least. Unfortunately, the backbiting, sabotage, and passive-aggressive behavior among co-works, and management's participation in cultivating it, made for a hostile work environment. Programming is inadequate and there are no outcome measurements in place. Based on my experience working there, I personally wouldn't place my child in this facility, recommend it to other parents, or to anyone looking for a nice place to work.
