Here's why I don't like the preschool. My 3-year old niece went there many years ago, and was, believe it or not, bullied. Another little girl was taking toys from her and saying hurtful things and just plain mean. When she would get dropped off my niece would cry and bang on the window because she wanted to go home. I didn't think it possible at that age, but something wasn't right with that bullying child. When my sister approached the preschool's director about it, her response was "she needs to toughen up." Obviously, my sister pulled her out of that school but there was a bit of damage done. My niece was more shy for a few years than I think she would have ordinarily been. The director is still there. My family has a few choice words to describe her, but we are not into destroying people, otherwise, we could have, as we are very well know in our town.
My niece is now a freshman in high school. She remembers it. She can laugh it off now but if you ask her how it felt at the time she will not be smiling.
