Great,

As a young parent placing my child in a quality child care is number one. Initial steps is equipped, clean, loving and secure environment. My son wakes me up early to get ready to go to school to meet his friends, learn and sing songs he loves it. Not only is the location great, so are the home cooked meals.

Horrible

The only thing this daycare has going for it is the location. It is practically less then a block away from the major train station in that area.

You will not feel comfortable leaving your child there. They staff does not supervise the children properly. The staff is abusive to the children. Seeing as the children are not properly watched they end up hurting themselves or each other.

There is a playground on the roof in which the teachers will allow the children to play. There was an incident wear a child fell off the roof. A child left her cookie up there and went up there unsupervised to retrieve it. The roof door was not properly locked so the child gained access to the roof and ended up locking herself on the roof top. She then proceeded to climb over the gate surrounding the roof and fell to the street.

Another incident is a husband of the staff who visits the school often took it upon himself to punish and child for spitting. He made the child drink several cups of water as a punishment.

In my opinion this place needs new management. The owner is money hungry who robs the parents under the pretense of providing for the children. Such as, overpriced day trips, overpriced graduation ceremonies, overpriced class pictures.

This place has so much potential but needs new leadership. I would have given it a zero if I could.
