If you are a parent that is involed with your child. Do not enroll your child here. The owner, Ms Welcome...is not welcoming at all. She has an ego problem. She always manages to push away parents inquires, no checks and balances and if a parent doesnt just drop the kids off and pick them up she gets upset. They dont want you to use the very same e-mail that they have on there website to communicate to them if your working. They try there best not to document anything, so they can get away with fraud. She was mad that I told the payment department that the kids went on vacation for a week, so she cant still get that check. a few days later she decided to drop the kids from the program without warning. Someone so disposable should not run a business handling children.
This place is a nightmare!!!!! The lack of supervision is atrocious, teachers constantly on their phones, their staff turn around is at the highest, they have no consistency. Different people every time you drop your child. The Director is only present 2 or 3 times a week, the owner hardly is ever there and the certified teacher is only present like twice a week. The "teachers" yell at the kids most of the day, they have no control of the kids and they have the TV on. Kids are not separated by age group and although it has a gate to separate them they are all mixed together. They do not follow a curriculum, they do not provide a daily schedule and you only see projects for holiday occasions. Their back yard is filthy filled with bugs that bit my child and left her marks. The teachers do not have a system to communicate with each other nor the parents. If you make a stink about it they will then attempt for a week or two to correct the problem and then make the same mistake again. They can never give you a report of your child's day. They have played the system. I am surprised DOH/OCFS has not shut down this place. If you want a place to drop your kid and suffer all kinds of psychological issues, this is the place to do so. I unfortunately needed a place and picked this one. BIG MISTAKE!!! Took my child out of this place and regret registering her there.
I would leave ZERO stars if I could but I will instead list the several issues I've had with this daycare since my daughter's placement-Timeliness: Routinely opens late and occasionally not at without advance communication. -Poor communication: I was accustomed to receiving weekly newsletters or updates regarding the curriculum at my daughter's first daycare site and we received nothing of the sort here. Any events/shows/etc. are shouted at you during pickup and nothing is written down (They do not even provide receipts)Professionalism: I've had several issues with staff and professionalism including a Van driver making an inappropriate comment regarding my daughter's weight and a worker leaving her son, a stranger, in charge of opening the daycare. When I questioned her about his qualifications and voiced my concerns seeing as I had never seen him opening up the daycare I was called unprofessional. We pulled my daughter immediately following this incident. While this establishment does provide a decent education, they leave much to be desired in terms of professionalism and timeliness.
Please DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE. They have unqualified teachers, they have bad teacher turn over rate. The food is not well prepared and not good. My nephew went to this school and my sister was so mad on how they handle their business. The daycare only eat soup everyday. Where is the 900 a month money going to because it's not the food. The Owner is rude and so is the Educational Director , She has no clue what she is doing. The gave my nephew chocolate pudding with cheese for breakfast and hot dog with no bun with hash brown and half of the bun for chicken paddy. If you want quality education this is not the school for your child. I recently found out that the department of health keep showing up. I don't know why this school is still in business they really don't care about the children like they claim. My sister had to withdraw him from this place. PLEASE FIND ANOTHER PLACE .
This daycare does not provide healthy meals for my child. My daughter told me that she had cookies and chocolate pudding for breakfast. Another time she told me she had animal crackers for breakfast. She is not given any food during the afternoon and she is there all day. The staff are friendly. The educational director is very rude and unprofessional. There is a high teacher turnover rate at this daycare. This shows that something it happening in the school. I suggest bringing your child to another daycare.
Nice school; clean and professional. Owners where very nice and know what they want for the children in their facility and that is to learn and be reading for kindergarten.
Terrible place. They are not high on safety. Children cross the street next to trucks on a busy 3rd avenue street. Not an inviting environment. My child was not incorporated into morning activities once we arrived. Would not recommend to any one..
My daughter attended their daycare the owners is extremely unprofessional when it comes to handling concerns about the schools curriculum. I originally inquired about this school after seeming a good friend daughter speaking Another language and was learn verging well. I decided to send my daughter there. I found the school under staffed. The teacher arrives at 10-10:30 am daily. The principle shows up in the afternoon leaving the school under very little guidance. My the teachers were not consistent with there lesson plan and when I inquired the principle was rude to both myself and my husband. I would not recommend this school at all. Children needs a school that can work with the teachers to ensure academic success. You wouldn't find that here.
This place is disgusting very unprofessional environment there are alot of recovering addicts here they have mice and squirrels running around this place the workers don't care about the clients they just want there Medicaid insurance and after that your nothing to them do not send your loved ones here very ghetto place and disgusting beware of Abby she's there mascot she will try to tell you anything good about this place DONT BELIEVE HER ALL LIES.
