Terrible center. My kids cried every single day they had to go. They kept telling me the kids would be fine but after an entire month of them crying non stop I decided to look somewhere else. This was the second day care I had tried and was about to just quit working.The teachers talk on their cell phones both in the classroom with the kids and on the playground. Very very unprofessional staff. They sit around and let the kids cry all the time. I luckily found a great place for my kids that they love. Its NOT a place to grow.
We (my husband & I) had our wedding at St. Thomas and we couldn't be happier! Everything from the food, music, and comfortable worry-free atmosphere was perfect. The package we chose was the "Deluxe" and for the price, it is one of the best deals we found anywhere. T…
I've had a good experience in this daycare. Parents should know that sometimes accidents happen and that sometimes kids hurt themselves in the playground or playing with other kids. It could happen cause the kids don't listen, brake the rules, or fight with other kids, although those issues do need to be adressed. They have two playgrounds, a big one and a small one that is used for toddlers (like the tiny ones you buy from Wal-Mart). The kids have to be 4 or 5 to be able to get on the big playground. But if you don't want your kid in playground at all, tell them "my child is NOT allowed in the playground". The times my daughter has gotten hurt, I've always received incident reports that same day, but nothing major has ever happened. They take her and pick her up from school on time. During the summer they take the kids to field trips, with prior permission from the parents/guardians. They also organize events for the kids such as pre-k graduations, christmas dances, etc. The very few times I was running late from picking my child up, I would give them a call and they'd tell me it was perfectly fine. The daycare does NOT close whenever the director feels like it. They usually only close during holidays like 4th of July, Thanksgiving, etc. But whenever they will be closed they give about a week or even 2 week notice, it's not random. Never have I been called out of work or school to pick up my child after the daycare randomly closed. The owner/director does speak English, she has a very obvious strong accent and struggles to speak it, but she does speak English. The owner is not a native English speaker but she will still communicate with you in English if that's the only language you can communicate in. 80.7% of the population in El Paso in bilingual, and she is among those people. My experience at this daycare has been positive as well as my daughters. My daughter's favorite teacher is Ms. Connie.
Extremely disappointed and disgusted with the staff and owner of Center #5 that this daycare operates. Children are often neglected and left unsupervised, there is zero communication from teachers to parents, from teachers to kids themselves and absolutely no structure whatsoever. Mike has zero expectations and zero requirements for a person to meet to be able to work there, hence their huge lack of education in childhood development. Not one person in that building has a single credit for CDE much less a degree in that field which is better for him since all he can offer to them is minimum wage. Most of the staff is almost never nicely groomed or look professional and when there is a concern regarding their abilities to provide a nurturing and responsible care for the children there is never a reassurance from their end stating they are doing their best or that they will be better. It's a shame to know that a business in caregiving is exactly just that, a business, it's not a place where proper care is given to small children nor a place where they can really flourish since Mike is only concerned about quantity not quality.
Owner yelling at people from his roof to not park in his parking lot/ calls tow trucks on parents with no warning to the school across the street. Unprofessional... vindictive.. and they want to take care of kids?! No thanks
My children have been attending this daycare for almost 3 years now. The teachers are all very friendly and helpful. The classrooms resemble those at an elementary school, they are well decorated, organized, and CLEAN. The owners are also very friendly and great about addressing any concerns. Entrance is secured, as you have a designated pin to enter. My children love it here!
I work here and all three of my kids have attended Time for Kids for the past 9 years. They have an amazing group of caregivers who are patient and who really care about teaching the kids with lots of creativity!! My kids always look forward to the summer camp field trips. The home made meals are an added plus!
My 2 children were enrolled in this daycare while we were stationed at Ft. Bliss. I have always had a hard time finding a daycare willing to take my special needs son, but they did not even bat an eye. They made sure he was in the right classroom that fit his needs and had everything available to him. I enjoyed the fact this is a smaller daycare which allowed for my children to get more hands on from the teachers. They treated my children like their own and I will be forever grateful for all they did for my family. They are now family and still keep in contact to see how my children are. I would recommend this daycare to anyone looking for childcare on the east side.
When I read the below reviews I merely chuckled at such ignorant comments. We must remember that we are all adults and we must act like one, although there are some adults that obviously still have the mentality of a child. As the mother of two children (ages 2 and 5) I had a hard time finding a daycare that I felt comfortable leaving my children at. I was a stay at home mom for 5 years and it was time to get back to work. I took tours of many East Side daycares but neither my children nor I felt at “home“, this was until I came across Tiny Tikes. As soon as you walk into Tiny Tikes the bright colors and atmosphere is welcoming to both children and adults. The staff greeted my children with a smile and open arms; this made me feel at ease. My children have been attending for a little more than a year now and I must say that I am more than fully satisfied with the care that they provide for my children. My daughters come home everyday from daycare singing songs and showing me the new educational games that they have learned. As a parent I love the fact that the teachers are very loving towards my children, this shows me that they truly enjoy their job. I also like that the teachers are constantly updating me on the status of my children whether or not they ate, slept, etc. I recommend Tiny Tikes to all of my co-workers and am very proud to tell others about the services they provide for my daughters and I. With that being said I believe that Tiny Tikes is one of the most welcoming, loving, professional daycares in town. I have heard of many parents that make the drive from Horizon/West Side/Central to the East Side just to take their children to a daycare that they are comfortable with. If you have any doubts, I welcome you to take a tour so that you can see for yourself.
This daycare seemed great at first, but i quickly learned that this place is garbage. I think most of these reviews were written by people who work there. The staff seems friendly to your face, but when you walk in unexpectedly you will find a staff member yelling in the face of a child.
This daycare is horrible.... i picked up my son and both his eyes and nose were purple, his clothes full of blood. When i asked the owner what had happened she said he fell. No one bother calling me to let me know that he had an accident. I called the police but left the daycare to take him to the E.R where they told me he had a hairline fracture on his nose. The police arrived at the hospital where i made the report and CPS was called by the hospital to make the report. He was able to tell the police and CPS that the 'lady' was choking him and pushed his face to the floor and made him bleed. They denied it of coarse but we are filing a lawsuit at this time. Be careful where you leave your children, this place turned out to be a nightmare for me and my little boy.
