My son started at this daycare as a 6 month old and it seemed pretty safe and quiet. Every few months he would move up to an older classroom and every time he moved, I would get a little more concerned about this place. I finally removed him from the school and switched to a better school. He would run out and greet us when we walked through the door, followed by no one, and we are able to leave without anyone checking to see where he went. He rarely came home in the diapers that I sent with him. He rarely even had his face wiped since he moved up from Ms. Dottie's room. Ms. Debra, Ms. Stephanie, and Ms. Dottie would make sure he was changed and clean before we left the building. After he moved out of Ms. Dottie's class, this no longer seemed important. One of the teachers, Ms. Daphne told me my son looks like Freddy Krueger. No discipline was taken. I asked she not be around my son and she was in his classroom the next week. My son has sensitive skin and had his face broken out several times from them using baby wipes on his face to wipe instead of water and a paper towel. They kept using it after the doctor contacted them personally to quit using those. I have gotten several statements saying that we owed an ungodly amount, just to go through my invoices and find that the director, Kathy, is unable to remember to post the payments on his account. I had to tell her to post a $310 payment 3 times and it only got posted the last time because I requested to stay on the phone until she officially posted it. I put in his two week notice and gave them his end date. I came in the last Monday ready to get the last week over with and was greeted with "I thought your last week was last week... there are no more diapers or wipes for your son" ... Either they failed to tell me he ran out or they gave his diapers away when I gave the two week notice. My biggest regret so far in my son's life was not getting him out of there quicker.

Not the worst people, but I feel my son's education was neglected. I hate to be "that parent" but yeah. My son was suppose to be in there for pre k. He didn't learn anything other than a few songs. After leaving the center my son learned in 1 week something they promise they were teaching him from Aug 22-May. I'm sorry, that's bananas.
I recently toured this daycare, and I will NOT be sending my child here! While visiting the one year old room, a child dropped his plate on the floor. It was definitely an accident because I saw it happen, BUT at one years old, it shouldn't matter if it wasn't an accident!). I watched this teacher ask this one year old why he threw his food on the floor. I then told her that he did it on accident because he raised his arm to us when we walked in. I then watched her continue to do what she was doing while every child ate their food EXCEPT this one little boy who had dropped his. This continued for the rest of the time that I was talking with her. This poor little boy did not get lunch because this heartless woman decided to teach him a lesson for "throwing" his food on the floor.I truly was amazed by the fact that the teacher had no compassion for this little innocent baby who was now going to have to go down for his nap hungry because she wouldn't give him back his food.
The owner is fake and Very money hungry. She will rip you off. The workers are ok but the owner is rude and fake. The kids stay inside all day watching a little tv and they do not interact with the kids at all. The only time they do is when its time for you to pick up your child and she act as if she has been doing something with them all day which is untrue. She is very misleading. Again Do Not Send Your Child Here!!!
If you haven't been to PlayDates you are missing out!!!! I love this place and so do my children. The staff is professional and so friendly. I have been using PlayDates for years and my 3 year old loves going. So if you are ever in a crunch or just need a night or day out, check them out!!!!! I highly recommend this for an enjoyable time for your child!
Absolutely fantastic! The staff is amazing and my son looks forward to going to school every morning, he just loves it! REALLY neat little school and always busy doing activities, whether it's riding horses, spacewalks, riding the choochoo train around the neighborhood, etc. LOVE THIS SCHOOL!
My son has gone there since he was barely one. Now they have four stars with the state program, and it shows! He has learned more than I ever expected from a daycare. I feel like he is safe, happy, loved, & learning. What more can I ask for? To that one negative review.. I'm going to guess those people are making that up, because I know they do have to ask kids with horrible to behavior to leave sometimes. I can't imagine that to be true. Anyway, if you have to put your baby in daycare, put them at Mother's Choice! I know with their new star rating my tax credit is going up $500. That's like a bonus for having my baby boy in a good place.
