Back in 2006 or some time close to then this was the worst daycare! Im not sure what they are like now or if they got new staff but my child had abuse happen to them at this childcare. She is now 16 and remembers it like it was yesterday. Terrible! My 20 year old remembers all the bad stuff at this childcare also. After looking on yelp for childcares reviews i happen to come across the America's best childcare one and read a comment that was just 29 days ago and it look as though they clearly havent changed much if at all. I was a young mom and i should have called the police! I called dshs and told them but didnt understand that would not be enough. If this place has any good reviews i cant help but think it is the staff, or their family.

I have never gone on social media to blast any business but I have too on this one! I do NOT recommend anyone to take their child to America's Best Childcare in Everett off 132nd!! As most of you know I have adopted James who has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. This daycare is suppose to be a "Christian" Daycare and let me tell you it's FAR FROM IT!!! They didn't want to take care of James anymore so on Aug. 11th I was told they are going to give me a 2 week notice. I figured if you don't want to take care of my child why would I leave him there for 2 more weeks so we made that day his last day. I paid them 3 weeks in advance so they owe me for a week and 3 days. Let me tell you the crap I have been going thru to try and get my money back!! I can never get thru to the owner or the director! I only have been communicating with a staff member. I was told last Friday it was mailed. I still have not received it. I called this morning and asked for them to put a stop payment and reissue me a new check and I will stop by in the morning on my way to work to pick it up. I was just called and told that Faith (the owner) said no that once the check gets returned she will then reissue another one. I don't think I am ever going to get a check! It's Funny how if you don't pay them by 10am on Friday mornings you will be charged a late fee!! Now I am being told that I had to pay the 2 weeks regardless and that Faith is being gracious on giving me a refund.... REALLY???
The people that run this daycare are awful. These people are inconsiderate, unresponsive and unprofessional. Unfortunately because they have many families trying to get their kids into their daycare, they think they can get away with treating people disrespectfully. For starters, if you tell people that you will call them back, have the decency and the courtesy to do so, apparently these people don't understand that. For the price you pay to get into their daycare, you will expect to be treated as someone who matters. But their attitude is definitely that they don't need to care.
I've never experienced such an unprofessional establishment, and I'm sad to say that it was the place I chose for my child to receive care. One of the employees pursued an inappropriate relationship with the father of my child, and when I called to address my concerns with this - it took 2 months before I ever spoke to someone. I called 3 times. The director never made contact with me and it wasn't until I finally reached the office manager that I was able to express my worries of this being a conflict of interest and possibly affecting my child. The staff member gossiped about me, eavesdropped on phone conversations between my mother and other staff members, and caused a huge conflict in my child's family unit. I pulled my child out, and I haven't received an apology or had the director take any ownership for the discomfort I felt as a parent and the effect it has had on my son. I will definitely be filing a formal complaint with the state.
I was brand new to the area and hugely apprehensive as to where to send my children. A friend of mine recommended America's Best and I have to say that it has been an outstanding experience. My 5 year old jumped right in and even my 1 year old had no trouble adjusting. The staff is friendly and loving and I feel confident that my children are being educated in a clean, safe, and loving environment.
