Overall

Terrible, STEER clear of the one off greenwood. VERY dirty, Alot of "accidents" happen and they wont let you see the videotape. I had to take my kid out because its very unprofessional and the last straw was when I overheard them yelling/cursing. Nothing but problems from start to finish. Kids learn nothing as well.

ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS! I had my infant son enrolled at the Greenwood location. The first day his teachers were never notified he was enrolled. The director didn't even know he was in attendance! They advertise CCTV monitoring to help

parents feel assured and allow parents to review it at their request. My 8 month old came home a with a HUGE BRUISE on his nose. When I asked to see the video, they told me they first had to notify the "CEO" to review it and then decide if I would be allowed to view only a "section" that they had pre-approved. After several follow ups, I still was never allowed to see the video. I requested this so called CEO to contact me since she is NEVER at the center, which also never happened. They will charge you $5/day if you're late on your payment, yet several times when I've attempted to make a payment I was told to come back later or the next day due to the director being unable to find her record book, a person being left in charge for 2 days who did not know how to process payments, or to be told the director was out on a smoke break. I also was told while taking a tour before enrolling they offer 1 week per year will be charged at half the normal rate. It also states this in their parent handbook. When I attempted to utilize my discount for a family vacation I was told it only applies if I have been there minimum 1 year. I was directed to contact the director at their Embassy location and informed her it states no where in their handbook about the 1 year rule. She copped an attitude with me and said she would look into it and follow up with me. 2 days have passed with no response. I tried calling her 3 times to be told she hadn't come in yet or was in a meeting. I could go on and on! This place is a total joke with incompetent management. They will give you the run around and play caddy little games with you. Do not waste your time, money or energy with these clowns. They are ripping off parents!

If the option for no stars was available that would be my choice for this place. I had never had my son in a daycare but by circumstance I was forced to do so. This was at the Greenwood Facility..the first day I had him there I checked in on him several times, I looked at the camera and the classroom was DISASTROUS.. The kids were clearly out of hand with just one teacher in the room.One child was running around with a broom literally brushing a little girls hair with it while the others were throwing objects across the room! Director says "Let me go help her in there".. UHM YEA!! you let the children behave like that?? ..Though I understood children would be children I disregarded and went back to work. Next morning my son pleaded not to go back to the school, I thought he was just in the "breaking in" phase of being in a daycare facility so I gave them another chance. About 1 pm I receive a call that my son had a swollen eye due to a child throwing a block at him from across the room(which it was a plate but the DIRECTOR wouldn't have known that because she had her story all wrong)..3 HOURS EARLIER!... When asked why I wasn't notified right when the incident occurred Director says "we wanted to see if his eye would go down".... shortly after the incident they layed him for a nap?? Any kind of head injury/trauma I don't care how big or small should not be before laying a child down to sleep, but these people clearly do not know any of that! I rush over from work to take my son out just to find my son Crying in the corner by himself while the teacher and the rest of the kids are gathered around for STORY TIME!...Infuriated I asked to see the cameras, which so happened that day were not working!!!.. On top of not being able to get my refund back the only thing the director was able to say was she apologized but that was that teachers first day..which happens but if so why LEAVE her by HERSELF with 20 kids!!..Oh and also once I got home my son smelled like urine, which he had told me when he was crying he had an accident, WHAT WAS THE CHANGE OF CLOTHES FOR ?? They didn't even check him! This place is terrible, if you want your kids safe STAY AWAY from this place!..

unhappy staff, unhealthy food, accidents

Each time I have gone there the staff seems unhappy. I heard a lady yelling at a poor child I looked in the room she saw me and looked surprised. They don't have a teacher for the toddlers. I taught my toddler the alphabet I still have yet to see my child come home knowing something I did not teach my child. My child would always come home with scratches and bite marks and they do not know how to deal with those kind of situations properly at all. in fact they do not even know how it happened but I thought they always had a close eye on them. The cafeteria last is always screaming at the children and they don't give them enough time to eat. Speaking of food these people know nothing about nutrition. They give babies these unhealthy waffles for beakfast its sad. They also give them fruit in syrup as a fruit replacement. A bunch of crap. Okay and the manager she was really friendly in the beginning but later started showing her true colors. You can tell that there is maybe 2 people there that actually like children the rest of the staff just sees "job =$“ okay besides that okay its cheaper than the better daycares. Not quite as horrible as Bethune . Its questionable only because the person in charge of watching the cameras is usually not. So there daycare workers get away with yelling and possibly could abuse a child and no one would know esp with the little ones that cant talk. However yes you can walk in there at whatever time you please but they know you are going in and they can easily put on a face. Some of the workers there are just plain rude. The only possitive thing I have to say is that I would choose BCDC over Bethune any day. I forgot to mention that they don't even have toys and most of the toys are worn and nasty whatever they have of them. They also need to concentrate on teaching children good morals and lifeskills. Sharing, friendliness, courage , respect... so that corpus canhave better people in it. I suppose that is the difference in growing up in a smaller town in a different state we are taught to eat healthy and life skills and morals since we are young. Then people wonder why all those bad things happen on the news and why Corpus Christi has one of the highest rate in obesity... look all I am saying is if they changed all those things and hired peolple that loved children and were caring not just because they have their cpr and first aid certificate which by the way the people there are not even required to have one at least I don't believe so. Youmay be offended but frankly I am being hhonest and if thinking that being a caring person, having good work ethics and eating healthy is rude then sorry I can't help you change your way of thought but its truly a sad way of life for a child to learn that type of behaviour an lifestill..

Just recently started bringing my 18 month old baby to Bay Area. So far I have had no problems. The teachers are very caring towards my daughter, Every day they provide me with a slip that tells me everything that they have given her and times. It has all been on schedule so I feel a lot happier knowing that while I'm working my daughter is okay.

Poor Structure? Unsteady staff? And No Consistency? Hmm.. Okay.

Well first of all... I have been a regular at Bay Area since my son was a baby.. He is now in the 4 & 5 year old classroom.. I have NEVER had any problems with this daycare.. POOR STRUCTURE? Through out every classroom he has been in he has learned so much from his ABC'S to his numbers 1-50 etc. The teachers even challenge the kids which is good because it allows them to know more when they hit big school. UNSTEADY STAFF? My son has had the same teachers since he's been there! AN NO CURRICULUM? Before you walk into the classroom there is a curriculum board that tells me what my child does every month.. Every day we sit down and go over all the work my son brings to me.. that's our time :)

This is all an all the BEST DAYCARE! I would recommend all family and friends to attend this daycare because in the end you will NOT regret it :D

My child has been enrolled with Bay Area for 2 years now. My child is 3 years old and she loves it! She brings home her artwork and the things she learned for that day. The 3 year old teacher is very friendly , loving, and caring towards my child. I have never had any problems with this daycare. I recommend this daycare to everyone.

Overall

I took my children to this daycare based on the reviews. BIG MISTAKE. Notice how these reviews were written back in 2010. I don't recommend this daycare at all. Poor structure. Unsteady staff. No consistency with curriculum. My child never brought home art work in the half a year that she was there. Their credentials need to be re-looked at.
