The school is owned by Kimberly and Larry Morey. The chef-now-administration, Chase Hardin, is the son of the owner, Kimberly Morey, and is married to the Upper Campus director, Kristen Hardin.
Employee turnover at ABC is troublesome to say the least. Very few teachers have stayed past one school year, much less three or five. The teachers and staff that have been there the longest are all part of the owner’s family. The toddler room has not kept a steady room staff for the past four years – and teachers being PAID was a HUGE issue. Bounced and withheld checks often left employees owing rent or with bank fees – and had to fight the school to reimburse or pay them!
Currently there are only a few teachers at ABC Montessori that are actually certified in Montessori. They often embellish or flat out fabricate credentials for their teachers and staff. Last school year alone, they lost 18 employees.
