Mom Sues Preschool For Bad Education

Mom Sues Preschool For Failing to Prepare Tot For Ivy League

The preschool brochure may have promised the world, but a New York City mama says it failed to deliver. After spending $19,000 a year for a preschool education, Nicole Imprescia is suing her daughter's Upper East Side nursery school for putting her daughter's future education at risk. According to the lawsuit, at 4-years-old, the tot was forced to learn shapes and colors with younger children, rather than studying for the standardized tests used for private elementary school placement – the thought being that acceptance to an elite NYC elementary school will feed into a top-notch university in the future. The suit seeks a refund for the lil one's tuition and mentions a possible class-action suit on behalf of other parents.

Preschool is meant to be a foundation for a lifetime of learning, but just how much of the future be determined by early education?

I agree with Evie. It depends on what she was promised. The article says she studied shapes & colors with the younger kids... were the kids her age studying for these tests? I guess I see where the mom is coming from if that's the case.

I think it depends on what the school promised. If it said it would prepare the child for the tests and then didn't, the mother might have a case. It would be the same if you went to school and were promised you would be prepared for an exam, ie you're told the class you're taking is going to ensure you pass the SAT and it obviously does not. Woudn't you expect a refund of your fees? It does sound as if all she wants is the tuition back.
