This is one of the best centers in 38128 with affordable rates and quality care. We stand on the foundation that everyone wants good care for their family but sometimes can't afford it. We have some if not the lowest rates around. Yale Road is a 3-star facility according to the Department Child Services. We take pride in our business, the families we serve, our staff and our facility. And only hire and retain the best. We want each and every family who walk thru our doors to feel like they belong here. We are highly organized and professional with over fifty years of combined early childhood experience between our administrative staff and our management. We take pride in keeping a very clean facility. People who we employ and keep on have proven time and time again they deserve to be a Yale Road member thru their work ethics, dependability, flexibility, knowledgable, professionalism and by their daily interactions with the children and families we serve. We have been open for over a year and have seen many not 12 employees come and go. You can't make them stay but you can hold them accountable for their actions. Only the ones who stay believe in themselves. The childcare industry is very demanding and challenging. In this line of work only the strong stays. Employees must be able to adhere to our policies and procedures ( employee handbook), actually show up for work, be punctual, be ready to work, be flexible from 6:30-6:30, be a team player. Most importantly, be able to educate our youth by following our curricula and keep our facility clean. Employees who are fly by night workers can't do those things mentioned above. They interview well, have great ideas but show little to no actions, once hired. Therefore, it they don't fit into Yale's program. They must move on. We have had some to quit, some to call-in repeatedly, be a no show when scheduled or think this is simply a baby sitting service that requires seating long periods of time, just to name a few. Yale is a center of learning through explorations, interactions, exposure with qualified, bonified hardworking educators who are lead by competent managers, leaders and an owner, who all collectively have a desire to bring up a generation of scholars. We have an open door policy and welcome the community to our facility to take a tour, ask questions, observe and to see it for yourself. Thank You! The Owner
I think this is one of the neatest centers in Memphis. I would rate this center in the upper 1% here. Come take a tour as I did and say WOW.
coming from a previous child care center, I toured Sonshine with all of my research done. I came across these reviews and was very nervous, but, I had a friend whose daughter attended SLC and she HIGHLY recommended it. My little girl will be 4 this month and she has come so far with the teachers in the center. I asked a lot of questions and even mentioned some of these comments and found out some of the actual facts about the reviewers. Leaving on a bad note always resorts in an lashing out of some sort, especially when it's about a mommy and her baby. As far as the bleaching of toys in the hallways, any mother knows that we cannot have bleach where children can ingest or touch; that's why they did this. The office staff has been phenomenal, including the director. She is there everyday for at least a few hours. I have never had an issue with not being able to speak with her or at least get a returned call in a timely manner. The abeka program is the learning program they use and one that I am familiar with because I am a certified SCS teacher. I would recommend this center to anyone looking for a decently priced, Christian center where your kids can grow up.
I agree with meme18:) this daycare is probably one of the best around bartlett! I toured a lot of childcare centers before this one and all of the previous ones were way more expensive and not near as nice as Sonshine I am blessed beyond words that my son attends this fabulous daycare he has been attending for about 2 and half years and recently they have gotten new office staff that are both very friendly and willing to help out in any way they can. they also have done some remodeling in the office and some of the classrooms so that was the reason for all of the toys in the hall way being cleaned. So if your going to post a negative review please be sure to include ALL of the facts! For your children's safety this daycare has a security code to get into the front doors so if you are not an employee you must be buzzed in they also have cameras in each room to assure that the teachers are doing what they are supposed to so if you are looking for a daycare please consider taking a tour of Sonshine learning center you will not regret it:)
