I started taking my son to this daycare in December 2016 and it has been a blessing for me to have found this place. I was just driving by and saw the sign that said childcare on the side of the building and I went in to get some information about it. I first talked to Mrs Aiesha about the cost and fees and how long they have been there. I wasn't sure about bringing him there at first but once I tried it for a few days and he adjusted to all the teachers there pretty fast and they liked having him around then I knew that it was the place for us. Of course it is always that time where every child cries when you leave them and after about a few months of him going there consistently he has adjusted to all of the nice ladies and teachers there. Mrs Mickie is the owner and she is so nice to my boy and to all of the other kids there. My son doesn't drink regular milk like most of the kids at the daycare so I asked her if i could bring my son's milk to the daycare for him and she said no and she was very nice about it and explained to my why and I totally understood why. The teachers are so informative on what happens with my son on a daily basis. They give me his lunch and dinner assignment sheets and if he had an accident, they give me a copy of the report and how good or bad he behaving. The other great thing about this daycare is that they are a 24 hour facility so if I had to work late or just needed a night out to myself for a little while they can keep him at anytime for me which is so good cause sometimes you can't find that last minute person to care for your child if you just so happen to need sometime alone for a few hours so it is really great to have that option. Mrs. Shaun, Ms. Shameka, Mrs. Maxwell, Ms. Tiffany,Ms. Clara, Ms. Erica and any other ladies that I may have forgotten to name, thank you all so much for the wonderful love and care that you show my son. He loves you ladies so much and I trust you all while he is in all of your care.
I have lived in Mariposa Lofts going on 4 years now. I absolutely love it here and it is in the MaryLin/Inman/Grady school district! The location of our unit is perfect for us. Just the right amount of sun for both balconies, no sound from any neighbors, looking over the pool, beltline & Atlanta skyline. Love the top floor! Carla and the front desk staff go above and beyond for me and my family and Mike and his team replace and fix things same day! Had my AC stop working... Whole new unit replaced the next morning. My range had some un-even heating in the oven...... 3 days later a BRAND NEW gorgeous convection drop in range! When things go wrong, I have never, ever felt like I was putting someone out. The series "Being Mary Jane" was just filmed here and I just found out that the whole building is going through a complete renovation. New gym, media center, exterior, front office and also the units! So glad that we chose Mariposa Lofts years ago. It really feels like we are on vacation everyday. :) Yes, there is a problem with break-ins to units as well as lots of cars. BUT now we have 2 security guards that walk the complex just for us and when I asked for an additional dead bolt to be installed on the front door it was completed the next day free of charge.
Lots of positives, but more negatives. Great location! Close to everything! Convenient! But Camden Phipps also has a high crime rate and limited parking, which the management lies about and never tells about. My apartment in Camden Phipps was broken into one year and my motorcycle was stolen another. The management wouldn’t allow me to see the video camera tapes if any and neither incident was announced to the other tenants on the property. Many tenants have dogs, but there is no green space on the property so dog waste would sometimes sit for days in halls and a few times on my door mat. Camden has done a great job fixing up the property. The pool area is very nice and vacant apartments are renovated, but rents have gone up by almost 20% a year. Because of increases in the rents, a lot of old tenants have moved on and there is a changing demographic in the area. The maintenance turnaround has slowed since Camden has taken over. The old management would fix things in a day, while Camden can take up to a week. If you plan on moving into Camden Phipps, please ask a tenant about the issues, because the agents and property manager Tiffany Days have been known to be dishonest.
I moved in a year and a half ago. The first year was ok, had no problems! if I had an issue with maintenance, I would call Steve the maintenance man and he'd come fix it!!This year Steve quite, the switch for my oven went out. They said they had to order a switch. It took almost 2 month's, of me calling and going and going to the office. They just got another stove to replace mine. then i started having problems with the plumbing.Now the water in my bathroom sink keeps coming up. they came twice already to fix it, the second time the had a plumber come out and dig. it worked for 2 weeks now its back just like it was!!!!! Now its on me cause I left my car door unlocked. But i've done that many time, even forgot to let my windows up. well last night they went through my car pulled out all my papers, just trashed my car, cause there was nothing in my car!!! These guys have been hanging out side, when I come out sometimes there guys sitting on the steps leaving their trash!!! the complex doesn't even blow the walk ways anyway!!!!! Spider webs, bugs , leaves, flyers from restaurants!!! I WILL NOT BE RENEWING MY LEASE!!!!
My Child one of the most treasured things I have been blessed with in this life. With this blessing, I was also given another blessing; Child's Life Academy. When I have to go to work or any other function requiring child care, I have peace of mind knowing my child is there in good hands. For those with unorthodox work hours, there is no need to worry about working around the hours of this center. Child's Life Academy operates 24 hours a day and is open almost everyday of the year. The rates and hours provided to you for your money cannot be beat.The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and their communication with you regarding your child and what is going on at the Academy is excellent. Most children are not fond of eating vegetables. Mine is thanks to the balanced meals that Child's Life Academy serves. The curriculum is also very good. Friends and family are always impressed with my child's ability to recite and recognize shapes, letters and numbers.You will not regret choosing Child's Life Academy as a stop along the way during any day you may need them and also in the development of your child...Believe Me
I am a first time parent, and had to choose a daycare for my little girl at six weeks old. With all the horror stories that I have read online, my husband and I stressed over the decision on which daycare to choose from. Yes, Child's Life Academy is extremely affordable; however, that isn't even the best part. Yes, they are open 24/7, and you don't have to worry like most parents at work picking up your child at exactly 5:00 PM. However, once again, that is not even the best part. Yes, they provide lesson plans and hourly updates to parents, and ALWAYS provides daily reports on your child; however, that is not even the best part. I could go on and on and on about all the great things Child's Life Academy provides for my child; however, the most important thing they provide for my child (besides safety) is love and care. My Lily LOVES the employees at Child's Life Academy. Lily lights up when she sees Alison, Erica, Ms. T, and Ms. Mickey. I can take comfort while I am at work that she is being cared for on every level, and THAT is why you should choose to send your child to Child's Life Academy.
This place is actually really good for a couple of reasons.A lot of people seem to think this place is ghetto and full of riff raff. I've been living here almost 7 months now. The majority of people I see are African American, which basically means the people who make those assumptions are stereotyping based off of race. Tsk tsk. That and you would be surprised how many parking spots DON'T have cars in them lol.Anyway, what has impressed me the most is the staff here. They do not play. Felipe is seriously one of the best employees I've ever seen in that business. If you have a problem, he gets to the bottom of it period. Not just him either, the whole staff. I'm under the impression they are turning that place around and maybe it used to be kind of "ghetto". They are doing a good job if that's the case.I haven't had any problems there. Nor have there been any crazy incidents like cars getting broken into, murders, or crime in general. I think I got lucky because my back patio is very private and quiet which I love. I haven't had any issues here at all. None.
Child's Life Academy is a great daycare/preschool. My daughter has been going there for 2 years plus and has always been treated well. For the price you pay and the flexibility to have child care 24 hours a day and 7 days a week you cannot beat this or find a better facility in the greater metro Atlanta area. I cannot tell how many times I have been thankful for this place to aid me when in a bind for child care. The meals, activities, and lesson plans are all on par with any daycare in the area. The location of this daycare being near 400 and 285 is also very ideal. As for billing I have never had any real issues, there have been minor things which I have disputed and they were always dealt with in a professional manner, 90% of time it was me forgetting I may have picked my daughter up late or so on. The facility has always had the documentation to support any additional charges, this is what I would expect from a business and like to see. So, I very much would recommend this facility to anyone looking for a daycare/preschool in the metro Atlanta area.
've been living here now for a little over 2 years and I love this place! When I first moved to Atlanta it was a really quick move and I didn't really have time to apartment search, The Prato was close to work, and they worked with me giving me advice on the phone, and sending me photos of my then studio.I was so happy with their service I ended up moving in blind without ever seeing the studio. And let me tell you I LUCKED OUT! It was so big compared to the studios in New York, and cheap! I even had a balcony and the complex had amenities- I never had any of that back home. A week into living in my new place I got a knock on the door, and got fresh baked cookies from a young couple called "The Cares Team" who put together events in the complex. I was sold. Now I won't say that everything has been perfect, this summer my AC went out, but I put in a ticket and alerted maintenance and it was up and working again in less than an hour. Avery is always there whenever I have a question or need something fixed, and he genuinely cares about his residents.
The obvious comparison is to the Twist near door. Limited menu is appetizers, salads and small plates. Maybe 15 wines. 1 Cab that I remember.Tried the pork terrine. Vacuum of taste, even with chutney sauces. Literally sucked the expected flavor from my imagination. Tried the pork samosas on waiter's recommendation. Same tasteless shredded boiled pork, but deep fried in filo dough in greasy limp turnovers. Wish he would have advised me I was ordering the same meat twice in a row. Tried the beet salad since its hard to screw up this dish. Got a dome of diced beets with fruits and goat cheese. Get a real beet salad at Barcelona's in Virginia Highlands.The atmosphere was nice; the service on par for a buckhead joint. Loud music outside from cheap speakers like nails on a chalkboard - at 4:00PM. Need to get better sound system, or make the music background to conversation.Yebo needs to step up to the plate and deliver, or die next to Twist like the last place there.
