Do not take your children here.
If there is a way to rate this less than one star, I would have. I cannot believe the rudeness of the owner of this establishment. I should have known upon the rudeness that I received in just scheduling my child to have a class here, to completely avoid this place, but I didn't. She had to change the schedule around and did not apologize, but was rude to us instead. Please, do not go here. The place is unlcean, the woman that ran the class, who I actually believe is the owner? is rude, does not appear to like kids, and just seemed to be unhappy to be there, which of course the children pick up on immediately. I will be investingating what else I can do to express the way that I feel about this place.
Don't waste your money on a birthday party at YCA.
Had my five year old's birthday party at Young Chef's Academy in McMurray in summer 2011. I was VERY disappointed--rude and dirty, even sloppy, woman was presenting/leading the "class", with food stains on a dirty sweatshirt from the start of the class. Details were excruciatingly long--this was a group of five year olds who wanted to have fun making pizza. Even the adults were getting bored. When I quietly approached her--yes, me, the one who was paying quite a bit for this party--to ask her to speed things up, she rudely and loud enough for the full room to hear told me SHE knew how to run the party and the KIDS were the ones who had been lost from the beginning. I was horrified. I would not recommend this place for a party or a class to my worst enemy--and later heard multiple similar horror stories. Wish I had heard them first. Save your money.
