What is this world coming to when even the atomic clocks in pre-schools won't synchronize properly? Seriously, ponder that phrase: "atomic clocks in pre-school". It's so "Atomic Age!" I suppose it's worth pointing out that the majority of GPS receivers including all smartphones manufactured within the past few years are excellent atomic clock repeaters rendering these WWVB clocks little more than "toys". No wonder they're buying them for pre-schools. :)
