Suit: $19,000 preschool 'a complete fraud'

A New York woman's lawsuit against her daughter's preschool claims teachers did not do enough to prepare the girl for an Ivy League future.

Nicole Imprescia's lawsuit against the York Avenue Preschool claims school officials promised to prepare her daughter, Lucia, "for the ERB, an exam required for admission into nearly all the elite private elementary schools," the New York Post reported Tuesday.

However, the lawsuit, which states "getting a child into the Ivy League starts in nursery school," claims the school's "promises were a complete fraud" and the facility "proved not to be a school at all but just one big playroom."

Imprescia said she pulled Lucia from the school after only three weeks but officials refused to refund her $19,000 tuition.

"What are they keeping the $19,000 for when the child was in school for under a month?" said Mathew Paulose, the mother's lawyer. "It's ridiculous."

Bill Wachtel, a lawyer for York Avenue Preschool, said officials were "surprised and disappointed" when Imprescia removed her daughter from the school but the institution has a no-refund policy.
