When I first got engaged it was my honest opinion that a wedding planner would be a waste of my money. I really didn’t see the need to hire one. My very high end venue provided a planner and I was quite pleased with her. Just about six months into planning my wedding, the person whom I was working with at my very high end venue moved on to another property and that was the end of it for me. My mother scouted the web and consulted with her friends and came in was Violaine Diogene of Andre Winfrye Events. Violaine and I completed our 45 phone introduction and I was just amazed by her. I was really apprehensive but her attitude just won me over. She must of asked me about thirty questions of where I’ve been, what I’ve been doing and what was I missing in the planning? She asked me things that I never thought of and explained processes that I didn’t even know of. Violaine was just a Godsend! When she flew out to DC to meet with me, it was all she wrote and since, we’re been friends. Her genuine smile, the way she took over everything, her connections and deep appreciation for what she does is just a few reason why my family and I just love so much about her. On our wedding weekend, I realized just how much Violaine’s services was worth, honestly, she was invaluable! She allowed for my mother to be by my side! She allowed my friends and family to enjoy themselves without worry. She allowed me to be the bride. Violaine once told me that my only job for the wedding weekend was just to be a bride. She was right. Looking back, I’ve come to realize and appreciate that everything really happens for a reason and I’m simply grateful that I had her and still have her by my side.
Child's Life Academy is a great daycare/preschool. My daughter has been going there for 2 years plus and has always been treated well. For the price you pay and the flexibility to have child care 24 hours a day and 7 days a week you cannot beat this or find a better facility in the greater metro Atlanta area. I cannot tell how many times I have been thankful for this place to aid me when in a bind for child care. The meals, activities, and lesson plans are all on par with any daycare in the area. The location of this daycare being near 400 and 285 is also very ideal. As for billing I have never had any real issues, there have been minor things which I have disputed and they were always dealt with in a professional manner, 90% of time it was me forgetting I may have picked my daughter up late or so on. The facility has always had the documentation to support any additional charges, this is what I would expect from a business and like to see. So, I very much would recommend this facility to anyone looking for a daycare/preschool in the metro Atlanta area.
First of all, my son had a blast here. But from a parents point of view it was really cramped and their wasn't a lot of room. The toys they had seemed old and needed to be replaced. I don't know if there was enough staff but their didn't seem to be enough people. One of the biggest disappointment was the Lego factory. I thought there would be someone there to give a tour and there was no one. Half the buttons didn't even work. The race track would have been fun but the kids there were hogging all the wheels and there just wasn't enough for everyone to build a car. There was only one person at the café taking orders and I waited in line for 45 minutes for a drink. The large lego people were covered in dust. But on a good note the 4D movie was great and the firefighter playground was lots of fun and the lady working there made sure the kids were safe and made sure to let the parents know that the kids couldn't leave the playground with out their parents present. Of course my son didn't notice these things he was just happy to be there.
