Unstructured, underequipped, uneducated staff, the owner is crass and unaccommodating, the food is garbage, and it is extremely expensive. Teachers let the children run amuck. My kid has come home many times with bruises and stories of getting pushed off the play equipment, etc. Teachers always deny seeing anything. Don't send your kids here.

My son has attended this daycare since he was a year old. He still goes after school. He does not have to go after school and or when days schools are closed, but he asks to go so he can play with his friends and see the teachers. He enjoys going and doing all the fun things they do. Definitely recommend sending your child here.
My daughter went there for one day. When I picked her up she looked like some one had scrubbed her face in the dirt. When we got home I washed all the dirt off n under it her face was all scratched n bruised all over. Her eyes were so red n irritated from all the sand in them they continued to ooze till she finally went to bed that night. Not to mention she starved almost the whole day she was there and didn't have anything to drink either. They said she wouldn't eat the breakfast n lunch they gave her. So finally when I called again at 1pm I told them to give her the food I sent. Which she ate. It was only snack food. But she was starving. Because apparently if they don't eat what's givin to them their policy is to starve them. I also told them many times she did not drink cows milk. And I provided a water bottle for her. Which they didn't give her. They only gave her milk. Which she didn't drink. So in summary not only did she not get any fluids that day but starved and aparently got beat up by some other child. Nothing was reported to me except that she didn't want to eat their food. I'm livid. I will never bring her there again. I have picture documentation of the bruises n scratches and blood red eyes. If I don't get a refund I will be taking them to court!
Never let this woman watch your kids. She left two kids in the car on a hot sunny day. She was going into the bank. An employee had to tell her that it was too hot and the kids where crying and she need to go get them. She then said "I won't be long" and "it's their bed time". The employee insisted she go get them "it's so hot" "your cars not running and unattended with all the windows up" so she did. She brought in an infant and a toddler. She then was in the bank for about another 20 mins. Everyone knows you don't leave kids unattended in a car. I was sickened. DO NOT EVER LET THIS WOMAN WATCH YOUR CHILDREN!! So many kids die a year from being left in hot cars. She could be the one that kills yours. This forced me to rate her. I would have given her no stars.
We came to the Straker daycare after a few unpleasant experiences with daycare in town. And immediately we fell in love in Marvelle's daycare. Marvelle, the owner, is the best care giver you can wish for. The daycare has a very warm and loving athmosphere. You will find a very organized, kind and fun person. Kids love her and she loves them. My daughter enjoyed this daycare for 3 years from 12 months to 4 years old. All kids including my daughter call her grandma Marvelle. Unfortunately, we had to leave the state, but we miss Marvelle's daycare and are still in contact with her and the kids almost every week. Marvelle has been certified as a child caregiver and she has a Biennial License - meaning she consistently showed excellent performance and compliance during the state audits. I will and have been recommending Straker care to everyone.Natasha.
