Had to take my children out because the husband was very verbally abusive to my children. He blamed my daughter for pouring glitter on one of the babies. even though she was crying and telling him she didn't do it. He made her stand in the corner all day with no food. He yelled in her face screaming at her telling her she was a liar. I was so angry and went there defending my child because I knew by the way she was behaving that she didn't do it and also I know my kid isn't that type. His traction was if you don't like it, take your children at out of my daycare. I had to work the next morning! He even forced her to call the parent of the baby and apologize for something she didn't do. Forced her! She was 8 years old. And very timid & shy & sweet. She was so upset and she's still devastated to this day. The child who really did it confessed the day after, saying she accidentally spilled it by climbing trying to reach the glitter that was above the crib. Who keeps glitter above a crib and where where they at the time? They had more kids than they could handle. and all he could say to me was he was sorry. He needed to be jailed with criminal charges for abuse against him. He's rude and distrustful and unprofessional and intimidates the children by screaming in their faces. I hate them and I hope they get shut down. .
This ALC location is horribly run. In summer 2016 my 8 year old daughter was bullied here. She cried everyday and didn't want to return. When I addressed it with the Director, Tracey Cramer, she told me I could disenroll my children if they didn't like it there. Bottom line was the center would lose over $30,000/yr. if the bully's parents were told about what he was doing because they would pull their 3, full time, year round kids. My 2 children only attended summers there. After discussing my concerns in a private FB group for local moms, there were SO MANY more reports about horrible, horrible situations occurring at these centers (there are a total of 5). Children being left with feces on the clothes and face for hours, and then the child being blamed by ALC. A SIGNIFICANT head injury to a toddler, caused by a teacher, documented by a medical professional. ALC denied this, refused to talk to the parents about it, calling the very verbal toddler an "unreliable source" despite the child's very specific, repeated statements of what occurred. The parent called the State, and 3 hours later the parent was told they could never step foot on ALC property and the children could stay at ALC ONLY if the other parent signed a form stating they would ALWAYS pick up and drop off. Another family, their child sustained a serious laceration to the eye, and ALC didn't call the parent or seek medical attention. When the parent picked the child up and saw the laceration, took the child to the ER immediately and was told that had medical attention not been administered at that time, the child would have lost all vision in that eye. ALC denied any wrong doing. KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE PLEASE!! PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY. These centers come highly recommended. That's because they force ANY parent out that raises any concerns. Check out their licensing inspections. https://www.compass.state.pa.us/Compass.Web/ProviderSearch/Home#/BasicSearchThey had 21 violations when the KNEW the state was coming?!? How many do they have every other day??? Hiring people with no background checks?!? They could be hiring a registered sex offender and not know it?!? Until the state violated them for it! Please, please. Keep your children safe. Stay away from any of ALC sites. But especially FOGELSVILLE run by Tracey Cramer.
Very good daycare , would recommend to everyone. They really put care into the children. And they also do transportation for free so that's a major plus
Can you please takeMy number off here !!! NOBODY CALL THIS NUMBER IT IS MINE! I don't appreciate people calling meAsking meIfI'm a 24 hour day care
my child went here and the workers are rude, careless, and blame parents for their inability to remain professional. my child has been exposed to several health hazards as well as mistreat by the workers. i have almost been fired for attendance from my job due to the lack of professional time frames they choose to alert their customers that they will be closed for random times. i was in constant panic every month as i awaited for another small piece of paper warning me they will once again be closed and i was forced to take off of work AGAIN! if your looking to call off from work an enormous amount of days every year then this is your place! would not recommend to ANYONE. they all seemed nice at first but then their attitudes come after your a customer.
After growing up with a stay at home mom, I never had experience with child care. But society had made me believe that children weren't always in the best of hands. However, due to job requirements my husband and I moved to this area and enrolled our then 5 month old son to this center, and have not one regret. He was full time there and the excitement on his face when he saw the friendly staff in the morning warmed our hearts. I picked him up at different times and not once did I ever find him in a dirty diaper, hungry, crying, or alone. The daily update sheets made me feel as a first time mom as if I wasn't missing out on any of his milestones. If you are reading this review, do yourself a favor and schedule a tour of this facility! You won't regret it!
my son has learned more at this place then any of the other places i tried. They actually cared about preparing him for school and I just was not getting that at any of the other 3 places I had him at prior. Def 5 stars just off of that.
Literally the most unprofessional daycare I have ever experienced. Used my child in lies to find out they were mistreating him. Do not send your children here.
Building under construction BUT very nice and professional over the phone, this place seems like its not going to be like the rest of the daycares in Allentown. Looking forward to their open house!!! their website is amazing
They go to sleep upstairs and leave the children alone sleeping downstairs in a room ALONE. I know this for a fact because that's what I found the first and last time my kids went to this daycare. Then they argued with me about how many Children I dropped off that day. I have 4 kids but they could only find 3 ! I found my 14 month old baby by herself in a different room strapped in a bouncer. How this daycare is even open still is crazy to me
