I am very picky about who I leave my children with and where they go. They have been at MJ since August and they love it there. The ladies that work there treat them like their own kids. They rock them, love on them, pay special attention to them, color with them, use positive reinforcement and constructive discipline. My 4-year-old knows how to do beginning math, letter and number recognition, he can count in Spanish, knows the colors in Spanish, has learned many new educational songs....I could go on and on. MJ is a great place to take your kids. They have a room for the smaller children. This is partly for the time the older kids are in preschool and partly so the younger ones can nap while the older ones have quiet time. The kids are not forced to be separated and they get time together. It is a very good system. I looked at MANY daycares before choosing this one and I feel this is the best place for my babies. I have never seen any child able to harm another child where an adult is not close by. Things happen because kids are kids, but the adults always step in. They handle situations professionally and lovingly. I have dropped in unannounced many times, so I know this is how they always are. Whoever wrote the bad review must have gotten confused. We LOVE MJ!!!
When we started munchkin junction, we saw the post here about Kids who need extra attention, and how MJ was unable to provide that, and we dismissed it, as our kids seemed fine. Since that time, our toddler has been diagnosed with some developmental delays, and has picked up several concerning behaviors (that he only, oddly, displayed at the daycare). Since he began requiring extra attention, we received constant feedback from the owner and workers in which the suggested that we should leave. We decided to stick it out, but we were eventually expelled after our son hit another child in a common area on an understaffed day. Our older son did well here, and enjoyed his time there. The teacher, who is leaving, was caring and kind, and was glad to give extra attention and feedback. In the end, if you have a 4 to 7 year old of average abilities and behaviors, this is your place. If you have a toddler, or a child who needs extra attention, you should probably go somewhere else.
I'm not sure how someone could give such a negative review for them? I'm a new mommy to a lil four month old and he has been going there since he was two months old...( so hard to leave him) the first day i dropped him off i stayed for what seemed like an hour, and they were fine with it and went about taking care of the other kids, and when I came to pick him he was in a great mood and has been more than half the time... When I did my tour what really drew me too apply was when I walked in it didn't smell like dirty diapers it was nice and fresh, and watching them play and help the kids learn new things it would be great for my lil growing boy. And the rates where very reasonable and being a mom my schedule is come and go and they work wonders with me with that. I know everyone has there opinions but it seems like someone has a personal hate towards them, so if you want a happy and inviting daycare take a tour and experience for yourself.
