We have been attending this daycare for 3 months and are very happy with it so far. It is a relaxed but structured atmosphere where the owner has a daily presence. Our previous daycare was basically run by the director and the owner did not spend much time at the establishment; this is not the case at Little Ones. The owner may not be there every second of the day, but I hardly feel that is necessary. His cell phone number is given out freely so if there is an issue he is reachable. Every time I have called the daycare I have gotten through with no problem. Many of the teachers are moms too and I feel that they truly take an interest in my son. I also feel that they are good at communicating with me about my son and anytime we ask them to make a change in his routine, it is made with no problem. If there is a revolving door at this daycare, as the previous commenter suggests, I have not noticed it yet. There are going to be issues with any daycare; however, I certainly don’t think that attacking the wardrobe choices of a teenager is the appropriate way to handle disappointment in your child care establishment. Update: 07/10/2012 We have now been attending this daycare for over a year and still like it. I always get a hold of someone when I call and nearly all of the teachers that were there when we started attending are still there. I am having another baby in December and she will also be attending this daycare. It's not the prettiest building on the outside but it's what's on the inside that counts!
Excel Learning Center & Childcare is an exceptional day care facility. As the mother of 3 children that attended the daycare over 10 years ago, I was astonished to hear my daughters who are now 15, 14, and 10 reciting the Excel Creed just the other day and encouraging one another that they can "Do anything they put their minds to...". Excel Learning Center & Childcare set the tone for their education and prepared them well beyond what I would have expected in the pre-school program, propelling my then Kindergarten daughter into an accelerated program and preparing my pre-school daughter beyond all the other pre-schoolers in her class when we relocated to another state. I can't speak enough good things about Excel and I believe their longevity in this business, the staff that consistently works hard to provide the best care for our children and their exceptional program make Excel Learning Center & Childcare the BEST choice for your childcare needs. I thank God for the staff at Excel Learning Center and specifically those teachers and administrators that have made an impact on my children. Ms. Cain, Mrs. Candice, Mrs. Barbara, Ms. Von, and last but not least Mrs. Traylor because without her, Excel Learning Center would never have been able to impact my life and the lives of my children. Hats off to you all!
My Daughter went to Cornerstone Child Development for over two years and we never had any problems and were very happy with the way she was treated there. It's hard to read such a bad review and to be quite honest, if this child really did get out and run down the street, that tells me a lot about how this child is probably being raised at home. Question: Is it the daycare or the child's parenting that really caused this type of behavior. All it takes is a few bad reviews form some irate (over the top, over exaggerated) parent to ruin a good daycares name and reputation. I can tell you that if this really happened, it was a fluke and I'm sure there is two sides to the story. Go and check this place out for yourself and then go and look at other places. I'm sure you will pick cornerstone over the others. This place is ran by people who work very hard and probably work a little too much at times. I know the owner very well from our experience there and she is a very hard worker and good person with great character. I would recommend this place to any new family starting out in the daycare world. You will not be disappointed. Five star daycare. Remeber: don't believe everything you read. Do your own research. Go there and and see the place and that will answer all of your questions and concerns.
