Time for a new preschool?

After spending a long time searching for a preschool, and getting a great deal, I enrolled my daughter in something I thoughy would be great. Unfortunatly, the more I find out, I am starting to dislike the teacher and her policies. It seems to me that everyday they are getting junk food at snack time, watching movies everyday, and either skipping circle time, or doing it before we get there, also they are not practicing writing their names, and skipping naptime. When I pick her up, she is cranky and whines until we get home (forget stopping anywhere, or doing something fun together) continues whining until dinner is cooked and by the time its bedtime, Im exhausted too. I am very anti junk food, which the teacher knows, and tv is a reward in my house, not something that goes on everyday. I haven't talked to the teacher yet, but I have started looking into other schools for the fall. Im about to pull her out for the rest of the summer too. Any advice?

Are you using this as daycare because you have to work? Preschool isn't necessary. You can teach her everything she needs to learn at home. If you absolutely want/need her in preschool, definitely find a different one.

TV every day? I would leave based on that alone. My DD goes to daycare and they have a no tv ever rule. It would bother me if they watched it every day.

I've never heard of a preschool that had a tv. I've also not heard of a preschool that didnt have a start and stop time. Are you bringing your child late to school? That is your fault if your child misses something. This sounds more like a daycare which has no obligation to teach anything.

Is this a licensed school!? This doesn't seem on the level.

Definitely talk to the teacher as well as the administrator about your concerns.  If they are unconcerned or nothing changes, pull her out.

How old is your child? 

I agree that the need to stick to a schedule and feed them healthy food but she doesn't need to be in a full time preschool either. Kids need down time too. 

I would find a new preschool/daycare.

This sounds like a daycare not a preschool.

im confused... how old is your child? that would  matter what they are doing ( writing names or not). you siad watching movies but  then you siad you dont like tv.. which is it? are they watching movies? or tv? what kind of movies are they seeing? maybe educational? what is their scedule? are you  there during the nap time & circle time? or  no? bc then yes, you'd miss it.

 as far as snacks.. i usually provide my own. its important  to me to  send what id like my child to eat. maybe brown bag a helathy snack for her. what are they giving her?  my ds's preschools had goldfish, veggie sticks, pirate booty.. pretzels.. some were a bit junky in my eyes but kiddie foods not junk foods.

 is this a preschool or a daycare ?

 id be finding out these asnwers WITH the school & if your're not happy.. find a new one yes.
