My older son started Shorefront when he was 3 years old (he is now 7). Now my little one goes there. The thing I like the most is the teachers, and overall structure and organization. The old director was strict and a little too religious for me--i felt instead of general education she stressed Jewish education more. The new director just started this year--and I like her more, i feel she has a fresh outlook, she is more in tune with what the children should be learning and she introduced some cool new things to the curriculum. They now have dance once a week, acting and other classes intermixed with the regular program. Also on nice days they go play on the rooftop playground which faces the ocean. There are 2 things I dont like, however. The food they provide is not very tasty and kids dont like it much. It is definitely not homemade. And the other thing is that they are in a middle of community center so there is a lot of activity, its not like a separate building. But i feel these "cons" i can deal with, I like that they have certified teachers on staff and a program and a schedule.

I would like to comment on ShorefrontY since my daughter has been attending its UPK full day program since September. I was also a bit weary of the new Director, and it seems like she had a lot to handle and a little confused at first. Now things have seemed to fall into place but I really don't know how they used to be with the old Director. All I know is my daughter really likes it. They have implemented additional programs for the UPK kids, they have 45min dance sessions on Mondays, Gym class on Wed. and I believe just recently they started a theater/drama group on Friday. My daughter only commented on the theater once last week, so I take it they just started it. Also, the director is really trying to get kids involved in G+T testing, and overall is very responsive to all concerns. There is one Russian and one American teacher for the UPK class so it made it easy for my daughter to transition since she didn't speak any English before going there. Although I am not too fond of the American teacher in my daughters class(I find her very rude to both adults and children), the Russian teacher is nice and I think the other teachers in other classes seem pretty nice.
