If you plan on taking your newborn/pre toddler here be aware. I didn't start experiencing mishaps with my child till the 12 month old room, where the teachers were unaware of why she was crying at times when she was picked up. Always had a draining nose that I had to ask if they could clean before handing her to me. I took her out after she was "suspended" for biting another pre toddler 2x and the newborn manager "stopped" her 3rd attempt. My daughter never bites at home or with older sibling during playtime. After seeing footage for myself assurance and wanting to see what the teachers were doing for her, I was dissapointed in the staff as to keeping an eye on my daughter to help prevent her from doing it a 1st and 2nd time. But in the managers words "they don't know, their too young to understand" but she understands getting suspended? She's 1 years old! It hurt me as a parent working full time to have her out of school for 2 days due to negligence and poor care taking and guidance. Yes they're over crowded. So if you plan on wanting your child to get the fair attention they deserve, look elsewhere. My daughter is now enrolled at another school, getting the fair attention every child deserves, doing learning activities and has had no biting incidents since. Another thing, I've taken new wipes and package of new diapers and haven't ran out and been close to a week n half. At red barn by day 4 she wouldve needed more. What else does that tell you. Some of the teachers were great but you would be lucky to have them again the next day because they move them around so much. And incident reports were rarely made when finding a scratch on her face or why she was crying.
At first I was concerned that the building was not the nicest looking and it was in a part of town that is know for being bad, but the lady's taking care of the children are very nice, my son absolutely adored his teacher, Ms. Bel. The cost is great, considering I don't get help with daycare ex…

Very friendly staff. The best place I have ever taken my children. My 3 year old was terrified of doctors until we came here. They handled my child on his level and were able to get him to do everything they needed by making a game out of blowing paper and allowing him to see the light before th…

Worst daycare in corpus christi.. i am a hard working father who works everyday and for me to pick up my little girl with scraps and brusies in uncalled for.when i read my 2yr old report the paper didnt explain my daughters cut on her face!when i asked what happen the same day the other provider…
he Staff is underpaid, the classes are to full, no real certified teachers and therefore teachers don't care for the kids. If kids get to difficult they write one write up after the other, send kids home and then suspend kids! They don't teach the kids anything, all the kids do is run around, scream and play. My son was 9 months there and his behavior got worse and worse the longer he was there. Now he is in a new preschool and he is like a new child! I do not recommend this place.I posted another review on yelp and the owner argued with me back and forth. Claiming my child was so bad that no teacher wanted to work with him and some of them even quit! In her opinion she can do no wrong. My son is now in Little Roos Preschool Academy and he is like a new child! He learned in 3 months more there than in 9 at Bay Area! Do some research on this place !
We Love having our 19month old here! She gets excited when we pull up into the drive way. I love how orgaized Nilda is and the space she designed for the children is awesome. You can tell she put a lot of thought, effort and love into how she cares for them. I also love that my daughter has learned dance moves to childrens songs. That shows me she is getting attention from Nilda. We Highly recommend Nilda.
Love this day care for my children and grandchild !!! I couldn't be happier. The teachers are attentive and caring. Never imagined being so comfortable with any day care, but I go to work everyday knowing my kids are in a great and nourishing environment. Couldn't be happier highly recommend !!!
At first I was concerned that the building was not the nicest looking and it was in a part of town that is know for being bad, but the lady's taking care of the children are very nice, my son absolutely adored his teacher, Ms. Bel. The cost is great, considering I don't get help with daycare expenses from the state and they have long hours of operation which was wonderful because of my crazy work schedule.

The Learning Tree Preschool Center is such a great school. My child looks forward in attending everyday. She gets excited about going to learn and have fun. The director and the staff and including the chef are so awesome! The food is prepared daily and is very delicious. As you walk in you can't help notice the cleanliness and the Christian Love. Very professional staff. M.R.
My Boys Have Grown And learned Alot While Attending The Learning Tree Preschool Program. They Have Advanced And Now Know Many Things That Their Teachers Have Taught Them. They Share Their Love And Kindness, And They Make A Difference In My Twins Lives! I Really Recomend This Program For Any Child That Will Grow!
ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS! I had my infant son enrolled at the Greenwood location. The first day his teachers were never notified he was enrolled. The director didn't even know he was in attendance! They advertise CCTV monitoring to helpparents feel assured and allow parents to review it at their request. My 8 month old came home a with a HUGE BRUISE on his nose. When I asked to see the video, they told me they first had to notify the "CEO" to review it and then decide if I would be allowed to view only a "section" that they had pre-approved. After several follow ups, I still was never allowed to see the video. I requested this so called CEO to contact me since she is NEVER at the center, which also never happened. They will charge you $5/day if you're late on your payment, yet several times when I've attempted to make a payment I was told to come back later or the next day due to the director being unable to find her record book, a person being left in charge for 2 days who did not know how to process payments, or to be told the director was out on a smoke break. I also was told while taking a tour before enrolling they offer 1 week per year will be charged at half the normal rate. It also states this in their parent handbook. When I attempted to utilize my discount for a family vacation I was told it only applies if I have been there minimum 1 year. I was directed to contact the director at their Embassy location and informed her it states no where in their handbook about the 1 year rule. She copped an attitude with me and said she would look into it and follow up with me. 2 days have passed with no response. I tried calling her 3 times to be told she hadn't come in yet or was in a meeting. I could go on and on! This place is a total joke with incompetent management. They will give you the run around and play caddy little games with you. Do not waste your time, money or energy with these clowns. They are ripping off parents!
Check this link and you will NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE leaving your children with these people. https://www.dfps.state.tx.us/child_care/search_texas_child_care/ppFacilitydetails.asp?ptype=dc&fid=943755 We had so many problems including excessive biting on my children and my daughter's wrist hurting from being pulled by the director (Margaret). They gave us "boo boo" reports but didn't have their own documentation of it. They have FIFTY VIOLATIONS from the Department of Family and Protective Services. She will claim that she has turned the place around in the last 2 years that she has been there. The report I pulled with the 50 violations was for ONLY the last 2 years. And keep in mind, she was there before, but as the assistant director. Please, for the sake of your children, find a different daycare even if it is not as convenient. Their safety is more important than free breakfast.
