I utilize the facility for drop in care from time to time. My son screams hysterically when I drop him off here and he doesn't act this way at the church daycare or the gym. I knew that something was wrong but I tried to give the place a chance because the services and location are so convenient. I left him there for 1 hr 40 mins tonight. While I paid for the services I watched him playing quietly with a toy by himself. The provider (Emma) was telling him to put it back ( for what ...view morereason I don't know) He is 20 months old and doesn't understand those commands. When he did not follow her command, she aggressively snatched the toy out of his hand and stuck her finger in his face and started yelling at him. I witnessed the entire event and when she saw that I was looking at her through the glass she changed her attitude to a calm demeanor and smile, but it was too late. She was "busted." This is a form of abuse and no child should be treated in that manner. My son will not be back.view less
Child's Life Academy
My daughter has been attending Child's Life Academy since she was 10 weeks old. She will be turning 1 in a few weeks. If you have a non-traditional work schedule, and need care 24/7, then this is the very best option you have. I have never had any issues and have complete confidence in the director and teachers while I am at work each day. When I pick my daughter up, she is happy, her diaper is dry, and the teachers are usually warming up a bottle for me.
What a great school! They are amazing. Faith based curriculum, great staff,and the flexible hours have kept us at the school for four years now as a weekly family. Several times I have had to use the hourly drop-off program and they were very accommodating to the situation. We feel like family. All rules are stated before enrolling a child and any special needs are met to the best of their abilities and state guidelines.
Beware of this sheep in wolves clothing daycare. If this is a CHRISTIAN daycare, I doubt that GOD visits there at all. We were lured into believing we had found an affordable and friendly, clean daycare for our 9 week old baby girl. We met the director and her son and after meeting them and talking to both extensively decided to enroll her. She ended up only being there for 4 days. On two of those days she was distraught when my daughter picked her up and her diapers were very wet and...view more bulging with urine. She cried all the way home from the daycare. On the 4th day my daughters came to pick up our baby. They were greeted very coldly by the director. She spoke to them rudely and refused to look at them in the face. Our grandbaby was crying so loud and screaming when they went to get her. After my daughter got her things together, the director approached her and rudely said "your daughter can't come back tomorrow because her EARS ARE PERICED. If you don't take the earrings out, she can't come back. My daughter tried to explain to her the earrings were locked on so they could not be removed until the doctor who put them in checked her in 2 more months or the hole would close. The director said "well she can't come back" We had already paid for a full week and also a non refundable registration fee of $125.00. We got no money back for the day she was forced not to come back and the registration fee was just lost. We feel they did this on purpose as she had been there for 4 days before anything was said about her not returning. In addition to the Directors total change of behavior and demeanor. She acted like a WITCH and totally disrespected my daughter. She made no attempt to give us any refund. Luckily we found a wonderful daycare (private). It is safe and clean and our baby is CLEAN and SMILING!!! No more drama. I don't suggest anyone leave their precious loved one at this horrible place. They are not what they seem.

The idea of a somewhat affordable school that is 24-hours is great; However, in this case it is a manipulation. Where to begin; the over-crowded classrooms, that they shuffle children of all ages in and out of because they struggle to stay in ratio, the horrible teacher turn over rate, the unhealthy food choices offered, or the lack of education that the children are supposed to be receiving according to the faith-based curriculum that the money hungry owner portrays to be fond of. Th...view moree teachers seem to not want to be there, and the classrooms are generally overcrowded with chaos. Do yourself a favor and really investigate what goes on at this school before getting charmed by that southern accent into leaving your child here. The owner isn't oblivious at all. I've seen her talk down to staff, and speak loosely to parents as well. Some things are too good to be true, and this place is one of them.view less
This place serves junk food! Menu for lunch and dinner for the week: hamburgers, pizza, ham and cheese (prepackaged chemical filled sandwich meat with processed American cheese food on wonder bread) fish nuggets(highly processed, carcinogenic, frozen, be surprised if tgere is actually fish in it) spaghetti and chicken and rice. The owner Ms Mickey said they make NO exceptions. No other healthy options, they will not make any substitutions or exclusions, and you are NOT ALLOWED to bring...view more food in. If you are vegetarian or healthy or religious you are out of luck. They will not make any exceptions due to any reason unless there is a proven allergy with doctor's note and allergy test! They served my daughter cookies and juice for snack. She had to ask for water and she was given unfiltered tap water from the sink. I asked the she NOT be served cows milk or juice (only water, but I assumed it was purified or filered, it is not) and the owner said NO they wouldn't do that. (Juice is FULL of sugar and cows milk is unhealthy for many reasons, do your research) I am very disappointed in the reviews that claimed they serve healthy well balanced nutritious meals. THIS IS INACCURATE. Not only is your child forced to eat it (due to no other options)but you are forced to pay $5 per meal And $2.50 per snack. Please do not take your child here unless it is an emergency situation. It is so very sad that they feed all these children such nutrition deprived meals and have such strict policy eliminating any other possible options!view less
First and foremost this daycare needs a major renovation starting with the director Ms. Cee. First she is the nastiest, manipulative thief I have ever met in my life. Poor Micki owns the place and allows this menace to dictate parents and trick them out of money. While the owner was away on business, Ms. Cee began over charging me on my tuition. Granted I pay late and with cash, but she would give me an outrageous amount over the phone and then when I questioned her about it she thre...view moreatened to throw my son out! Not to mention how she gossips betweem my son's father and I. Ms. Cee also discloses personal information about the staff to parents and other staff members. The owner seems to be senile or oblivious to the fact that the Ms. Cee is stealing right under her nose. Here is a bit of advice Ms. Slivers: " Pay close attention to your deposit drawer and your paperwork. The Grinch who Stole Christmas works for YOU!"view less
My daughter has been attending the school since July & my experience has been positive until today. Given we moved to Sandy Springs, I had to find a new school for my 4 year old & this place was recommended by my friend. She never had any behavioral issues until she attended this school & how they handle the situation is dumbfounding. They have no issues with my daughter until it's nap time where she's allegedly disruptive, as she doesn't want to go to sleep. I've tried to work with th...view moree school on how we can help her, but there solution is to suspend her for a week followed by disenroll her if she does it again upon her return. This seems very harsh for a 4 year old & not only am I mad but disappointed in this school. Instead of taking my advice on how we can help her during this transitional time they want to kick a 4 year old out of school. It's suppose to be a Christian Faith school, but that's not what they practice. I've also come to realize this school may not be for my child, as she might be acting out because not being treated nicely at the school. In the end, what they offer seems nice, but they don't tell you upfront how tuition only includes one meal & snack while other schools offer breakfast, lunch & snacks. Meanwhile, this school considers it extras & will charge you. Additionally, they raised prices without telling you, as they don't believe in providing you a heads up. It's not their policy. Again I'm very disappointed, but there's several other schools with better offerings.view less
Child’s Life Academy is a beautiful day care center conveniently located in the heart of Sandy Springs. The hours of operation makes it a great choice for those working in the medical field, law enforcement, military, and other shift-type work where after hour care is needed. The staff is well-trained and love working with the kids. The curriculum is top notch. I would highly recommend this center.
my son has been in attendance since 6 weeks. It was extremely hard at first. No matter how many times I would stop in to see him during the day, the teachers and staff were very welcoming and understanding.
They practice excellent sanitation routine and I receive a report every day regarding my sons meals, restroom activity, and educational practices from that day.
The school was also very helpful and understanding when majority of the parents, including myself were stuck on the ...view moreroads from the recent snow/ice storm.view less
