Where should I begin? What started off as a daycare facility we were comfortable with has turned into one we loathe! We are moving our child, and it has taken sometime to find a new place we were comfortable with. Our son, has been picked up by us covered in his own vomit, his own urine and have had a mix up with our child's bottles. We've been accused of not paying, and in emails were we express our concerns we are told that we should discuss face to face because there are misunderstandings. Sadly, the only misunderstanding is the person who recently purchased it is out of her league. Left kids in the daycare for at least 2 weeks without air conditioning. Do not send your kids here! It's not worth the "bargain".
I just learned about this place from a Friend, i'm looking for information.
Since new ownership things have not been as good as they once were. They have had the state called in instances where children were put in highchairs to sleep or in bouncy chairs to sleep even though the state mandates that they should be on a cot or crib. The AC has been not working for over a week in this Michigan heat, making the children overly warm and uncomfortable. I would not recommend this day care.
Hello Everyone,I wanted to let new comers know that Kiddy Korner is an wonderful place to send your kids. The staff is really caring and understanding. My son went the head start program in 2016 and he just loved the program, his teacher was Ms. Rashidah who was fantastic. Anytime Ms. Rashidah notice anything that was off about my son that day she brought to my attention. The establishment is adorable and clean.
The owner may take good care of children but she tells all of the parents business that you tell her in confidence. She also talks badly about all of her staff that is why she never has the same employees working there. The management is terrible I do not want anyone to support this business in no way shape or form. When you are working with someone's child you have to be professional what makes you think someone wants there kid to be left with someone so messy other parents should not know when other parents cant afford to pay for the week. Parents should not know that employees checks are coming up missing. She sits and talk about her employees and parents and that is not good for business I will be reporting this to the state.
Worth every penny! My child has learned so much and became so independent. Mrs. Evans is very sweet and professional and treat the children as her own. my child runs in the door every morning so excited, that comforts me. Thank You so much Twaide!
I love this facility so much, I highly recommend this center. The staff is affectionate and welcoming towards my child. This is not only somewhere children interact and play together, but also are educated. My child is excelling in math, science, reading, and writing. My child came home and was able to tell me the smallest planet as well as the largest planet. She is able to express her feelings, interpret the food groups, identify rhyming words, read her sight words, and able to do her homework with very little assistance. She (the owner) has taken her time out to accommodate my extensive schedule and stay here with my child. No other center that I'm familiar with works with if you have a flexible schedule as well as she does. Not to mention the cleanliness of the center is kept up to par. The owner shows trustworthiness, integrity, dedication towards my child and her future, also is very sweet and compassionate. I'm highly indebted for the facility, staff, and owner.
In response to John E...I wrote a response to you and posted it last night. It, technically, had almost 24 hours to be viewed if someone was looking. The review was very detailed in the argument against the owner. My recommendation is that you speak to the owner and find out the TRUTH before you make false accusations. I pulled it down because I really don't want to destroy her business-it was just that detailed.Everything you say regarding "witnessed", first is false and can be debunked, but secondly, and more importantly, does not stand in a court of law, because it is hearsay. The information you received is one-sided hearsay full of lies given to you ONLY by the owner.But I can tell you what does stand in a courtroom-text messages. Hint, the owner sends way too many text messages arguing her demands. They are saved along with the ONLY contract given to the mother back in October, 2016. A January "signed" and "witnessed" contract does not exist and if it does, it constitutes FRAUD. She did not produce a revised copy. She only wrote new figures on a blank pad of paper and kept it. Ask her to prove otherwise.Please connect with the owner and tell her to stop lying to you. These accusations you made, along with the falsehoods she has told you, are "alternate facts". This attack further compliments her unprofessionalism. If you like, I can post some of the conversations between the mom and the owner.I will re-iterate. The owner keeps the business well kept and the children are well taken care of. The cost of care has never been in dispute. What is in dispute is the business ethics of the owner and the jumping of prices, closing down (for a hair appointment causing mom to miss work, etc...and I can go on). How can the mom be approaching 80 hours and the facility was closed from December 24-January 2 and the children were there only from January 3-6? She charged for both weeks and it is documented. She lied to you.Everyone needs to be warned and not allow her to take advantage if you walk through her doors. She DOES NOT follow her contract.Have a blessed day!
In response to Theresa J:We provide a safe, healthy, nurturing and responsive setting for children. Parents are responsible for any payments due for childcare. We have no control over the Michigan Department of Human Services time frames for approving or DENYING individuals childcare. Therefore, it is the parents responsibility to pay tuition rates agreed upon by both parties. In addition, parents are required to pay their family rate contributions every two-weeks based on their monthly income. In this particular case, the parent was denied childcare on at least 3 attempts based on income. Therefore, we offered childcare for her children at a substantiel discounted rate of $250.00 every two weeks for 3 children, ages 1, 2, and 6 years old. Meanwhile, while her DHS case was finally being processed and approved. The rate remained the same for at least 1 month.The parent was provided the handbook and contract, which she signed. Jan. 2017, our policy and contracts were revised. She was provided the policy and revised contract. However, she claims she didn't receive it. Yet a staff member and director witnessed her reading it.Our agency has the right to revise contracts at anytime if necessary. The parent was approved for DH S services which provided 80 hours. Yet the parent continously exceeded the approved amount.Our prices are fair and reasonable. We are open from 5:30am to 12:00am. We are not a baby sitting service. We give parents 1 hour to pick their children up before charges occur. DHS hours provided are for childcare services and not for parents to scrutinize.
Despite the facility being well kept and the children are well taken care of, the owner is EXTREMELY unprofessional. True believer of breaching HER OWN contract and charging outside her earning, not once, but AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE. Has advertised opens from 5:30A-12midnight...NOT TRUE. Owner will negotiate to get your business, but will use it later as an advantage to take your money. She will also change your "contract" at will just to make sure you pay extra. She wants you to listen to her demean you but will not listen to you as you confront her contract to her. Very unprofessional! No doubt she knows how to take care of children, but unethical in her practice!
This Childcare and Learning center is the best of the best. This will get your child prepared for kindergarten. This is a clean, friendly, and inviting facility that your children would enjoy. THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE!
