Mother Goose is Dothan's oldest Child Care Facility!! I'm 26 years old now. I attended Mother Goose from the time I was 18 no this old up until I was old enough to go to Kindergarten. And also went after school and on school breaks. Amazing Loving Staff! CLEAN Facility!
Very thankful for the dedication that all the teachers and the owner have for their job with children. They excel in every aspect!!!! I HIGHLY recommend Mother Goose Kindergarten to anyone!!!!!
My niece & I toured TLC, late afternoon. The children were outside. No director on sight: Gabby, a "teacher", gave us the tour. I have a degree in Early Childhood, worked with young children 15yrs & taught preschool; Care was needed for 18m & 3yr old. I asked "A LOT" of questions! Children may play 15min, then move on to another center. No pencils, crayons, markers, glue sticks, scissors, paper or paint out for the children to use on a daily basis. "Art" is done / teacher, & themed. :o( Discipline: time out, no problem, until we left! I was called by the director; "There was a problem, we would not be a good fit". Time outs: children are set in chairs, high chairs for the young & faced toward the wall! I made the statement earlier that this was abusive, had happened in the past & felt the person should have been fired. TLC is very regimented, found it to be militant. You may not visit the classroom for lunch or a project. An open door policy is best for children. Problems at TLC!!
terrible experience. Took my child there as a back up plan when regular daycare couldn't keep him. he would come home and not even act himself, angry and moody. this was 2012, did not use them again until a year later. My son was bit on the face by another child and they just waited until I got there to tell me. Never took him back. thought I was blessed to be done with them. Apparently they do crappy business up front as well. There was a past due balance on my account no one even told me about then a year after his last visit I get a bill in the mail from a lawyer from our visit in 2012. No one called or informed me when I took my child in 2013. I Hate this daycare and would not refer it to an enemy!
They keep a consistent schedule which is wonderfully healthy for the kids, my two toddlers adapted to it right away and began going along w/ each phase like diaper changes & naps perfectly. They have an amazing way with the kids, mine are so obedient and happy when they are there. They have progressed very well socially. They are super understanding w/ the problems in your own life and very flexible, they reassure you that they are there to make your life easier, that you can never inconvenience them & they always take the best care of your kids. The facility is clean, you can smell the sanitizers & everything is very orderly. The most important thing is that I can tell that these women genuinely LOVE my boys. They really truly are excited to see them, they love to hug them, I know they are taking care of them. My kids have a lot of special instructions, very sensitive skin, eczema, allergies, diaper rashes and one is special needs in a way and they have always paid attention to everything I've asked of them and learned from the boys too, accommodating and taking care of them as I would. Better than family.
