This center is despicable. The owner and the Asst. Director/Admin Asst are very manipulative individuals who only care about enrolling families with CCDF...so THEY can get paid. Also this center goes through Directors like its out of style--because a educated and qualified individual will not stay in that office for long. I am surprised that State of Indiana has the nerve to give this facility a State License in decent standing. This facility is unclean and is even infested with bugs such as but not limited to; termites, roaches and countless spiders. If you look at the classrooms and were to compare them with other state licensed centers, you would see that this center lacks the resources and the staff to effectively prepare your child for grade school. This center currently has no teachers with a CDA or a College Degree. The owner has successfully made the qualified teachers quit..because he refuses to do things the right way. And we all know that folks with credentials and degrees are not going to be apart of a fraudulent and deceptive business for too long without complaining. This owner (James Cabral) has fired many employees for informing the necessary authorities about his incompliance. I would not take my puppy to this daycare....let alone my child. PARENTS BEWARE!!!!!
FIRST STEPS DAYCARE.. I WOULD NEVER BRING MY CHILD TO THIS PLACE...THIS DAYCARE IS SO NASTY.. THE KITCHEN IS INFESTED WITH ROACHES IN THE CABINETS.. THE TEACHERS DONT HAVE NO LESSONS PLANS, THE KIDS PLAY ALL DAY. DURING NAP TIME THE KIDS SLEEP FOR THREE HOURS.. THE LADY THAT CLAIMS SHE'S A ASST.. FOR THE DAYCARE HAS A FELONY FOR THEFT.. THE OWNER (JAMES) WANT GET RID OF HER CAUSE HE CLAIMS HE CAN'T BECAUSE SHE'S FAMILY. THE ASST CLOCKS THE KIDS IN ON THE CCDF MACHINE ALL THE TIME, EVEN WHEN THE KIDS DON'T COME IN FOR WEEKS. THE CENTER DONT HAVE FIELD TRIPS FOR THE KIDS. THE KIDS BATHROOMS SMELL LIKE PEE ALL THE TIME. JAMES FIRED EVERYBODY THAT QUESTION THE ASST ABOUT HER ROLE. WHEN THE ASST. GIVES TOURS, SHE LIES ABOUT THE TEACHER HAVING A CDA . THE KIDS EAT JUNK FOOD EVERYDAY, NEVER NOTHING HEALTHY. JAMES ARE THE ASST DON'T CARE ABOUT THE WELL BEING OF THE CHILDREN, THEY JUST CARE ABOUT THE MONEY. DONT NEVER BRING YOUR CHILD TO THIS UN GODLY PLACE. NOTHING BUT THE DEVILS PIT. THIS PLACE NEEDS TO BE ON THE NEWS. BEWARE PLEASE.. GOD BLESS
