Contrary to the review beforehand, I could never see staff turning any child away at the facility for any reason. This facility is amazing and the safest, organized and cleanist facility I’ve seen thus far in Marshall’s Creek and I’ve been searching for over a year now. I am happy that my child goes here and he loves it just the same and after being recommended to it by others, I will do the same! You guys rock and are the most friendliest and caring people I know!

I needed a preschool for my son who has Apraxia and thought this would be the best place. Boy was I wrong. At first the supposed owner Jenn told me that it would not be a problem to take my son on. I explained to her he is not fully potty trained yet and you have to tell him sometimes to go to the bathroom. I also gave her some pull ups and she said it was fine so I did not think anything of it. The following week I get a call at work from the school and they are complaining saying that he urinated on himself and how it is not tolerated at all. She gave me about an hour long speech regarding all of this. I told her I thought it would not be a problem for him because upon registration you said it was ok that he is not fully potty trained. She then told me again they do not tolerate children that are not fully potty trained but they will work with him but I have to work with him at home which I was already doing. Mind you he is 4 years old and some children pick up potty training at a slower pace. Me and my wife begin working with him everyday and he is picking it up but at times we still have to remind him. I receive another call a few days later from the school saying he had another accident. Then another call a few days after that about how we need to bring him some shoes because the ones he has on are wet. Finally about 3 weeks in Jenn calls me again and said to me they can no longer accept him in the school. The Children's Education and Learning Center kicked my 4 year old son out of the school because he is not completely potty trained after 3 weeks. My son goes to the bathroom fine it is only when he is having to much fun he forgets too and has to be reminded. The reason Jenn told me it was ok when I was registering him was because they just wanted my money. If she had told me they do not tolerate kids that are not fully potty trained when I was registering him I would have went elsewhere.
WARNING!!!! Do not take your children to this facility. She is so money hungry her daycare is over crowded and under staffed. She brought her aggressive dogs into the daycare and one of them mauled a 4 yo old girls face. She takes the children on field trips and doesn't give them anything to drink all day. The teachers in the preschool room have no patience. I have watched them use physical force on children. They also force your children to learn to speak Spanish and when they don't get it right they scream and yell at them. They use your diapers and wipes on other children. They put children in a room in the dark with no adult supervision when they are in trouble. They let the babies run around with no shoes and socks on. The don't sanitize the changing pad after every baby is changed. They provide meals which the portion is barely enough to feed them while her children are provided special accommodation infront of the other kids. She had staff working for her with no clearances. She had people driving her buses with no cdl. Her buses that are also in my opinion not safe. The doors are never locked so anyone can walk in at any time. The playground is not clear of debris. They leave dirty buckets of water with cleaners in reach of the children. Your child will come home with bleach on their clothes. Last but least. Heather the owner also has Stony Hollow Daycare in Bushkill PA where she is not allowed on the property pending a case against her to which her signed the daycares over to Stephanie, a worker.

BEWARE! I have been calling local daycares with Saturday availability for my 2 children. When I called bless the child, the woman said to just walk in to the facility, without asking for my name, setting up an appointment, nothing. Sounds fishy. I know I wouldn't want some stranger walking into the facility that is supposed to be keeping my children safe.
My kids have been attending The Art Learning Center for the past 4 years. The staff is very caring and competent. The center is very family oriented; the staff knows me and the kids very well and are always happy to see us. I would definitely recommend this place, we love it!!
My daughter's went their from 2007 to 2011 and it was and still is the best daycare you can find in East Stroudsburg,nPA. Dropping my kids off to Miss Olive was like leaving them with my own mother. My daughter's love her and her daughters and the rest of the staff if i didn't have to move away my kids will still be attending. they were not just people taking care of my kids they are family cause thats how they made you feel. listen if you need the best people to take care of your kids take them to Bless The Child Daycare. if i could i would give it a 100 stars......
