It's unfortunate that the daycare is still open. There are a handful of phenomenal teachers that absolutely love each child in the class like they're their own. The majority of the teachers are horrible . That being said I recently just took both my children out of his school. This school is filled with faculty that lie to your face and owners who don't care about the few decent teachers they have.My children have both been picked on by faculty. My oldest daughter is still non-verbal and that did not make me comfortable in that daycare setting with those teachers for the simple fact that she couldn't tell me that they were picking on her or the things that they were doing. There are things that I have seen and things that other parents have told me that they were doing that I tried to bring to the attention of the owners. I tried to set up several meetings upon a month-and-a-half span and was cancelled on anytime meetings were set up but they had no problems keeping meetings with military families who threatened to have them blacklisted if they didn't set up a meeting and address issues right there and then. Recently there was one issue that I tried to address with the owner's wife as well as faculty about a new teacher being too rough with the children by screaming in their faces and roughly snatching a toy out of their hand. While I was telling them this the one faculty member just had a grin on her face and before I even left the building comments were made about how I complain too much about things. I was very upfront and told them I understand that I complain about things but clearly there are reasons why I complain and I'm not sorry for speaking on behalf of my children especially if I feel like they're starting to become unsafe in their school. Keep in mind this conversation that I had was also being overheard by other people around. I didn't feel safe bringing my child back to that day care that day. I also had another teacher that I personally overheard telling another co-worker that they could not stand my 11 month old in in their classroom and could not wait until they moved up into the 1 year old classroom. This comment that I personally heard was also being overheard by other faculty members around and not one person corrected this teacher or told her what she had just stated was completely unacceptable.The list goes on and on as far as the many instances that have happened with my children in that school. I know numerous parents have made complaints that weren't taken seriously or just dismissed as soon as they were told. This school is one of the cheapest ones in town and I now understand why. For the safety of my children I chose to leave that daycare and never look back. If you want to bring your children to a daycare where you have to worry about their safety constantly, faculty lying to you, and owners who could care less than this is the perfect daycare for you

Worst daycare I ever chose! Cassandra the director is very unorganized and unprofessional. Daycare has lead poisoning and no repairs are being made. She will lie and she will steal your money. Nothing but the devil in her. No God at all. Its a shame due to it is few good teachers there. I have letter state made mandatory every parent get and will notify state she lied those areas she says is off limits to kids is where children go at end of day. Be aware parents lead poisoning daycare!
I chose this school because it had 5 stars but I wish I would have read reviews. I would not recommend this place to anyone. The only reason I would give them a star at all would be cleanliness. Supervision is weak and they lack a structured curriculum. Luckily my child is too young and sweet to realize the center doesn’t care about them at all and treat children as disposable problems.
I was a teacher working for Panda. The building is nice but the management is terrible and unorganized. Other teachers are not happy either & the company serves the same meals every week. The company hired me, to tell me they no longer needed me due to the other teacher coming back and then the company will not provide me a letter saying I am no longer employed. ? Terrible experience!
Best preK program ever. My daughter attended the school last year and learned so much. The place was so clean and the workers are so kind and really take good care of the children there. I was so upset when my daughter finished the program and moved to a different school to st
my kids and i love it. they do crafts and field trips and my children are excited to go and sad to leave
I had a great time getting to know her. She treats you like family not just a customer. Good luck with everything!
Earthshine Learning Center is an amazing place and the city of Fayetteville is lucky to have Mrs. Julie and Miss MaryAnne as teachers there who are willing to kindly dedicate their time to our children. They have created a warm, fun, loving, and safe environment that has captivated the hearts and minds of both of my boys. They have so much fun learning that they have no idea that they actually are learning! From what I've seen (and experienced) each child is taught on a level that is suitable to his/her own level so that he/she is never bored. I'm truly blessed that MaryAnne recognized that my eldest needed this type of environment and told me to give it a try. I'm even more blessed that Julie Turlington devotes her heart and soul into teaching him to "be exceptional at being exceptional" rather than expecting him to conform and meld into something he isn't. Ladies, I thank you with all of my heart for what you do. You are the best of the best.
My two children attend Earthshine and I couldn't be more pleased with the care my children receive on a daily basis. Julie allows the children to be themselves and learn at their own pace and style. She and Miss MaryAnne offer a loving environment but ensure there is structure as well. The facility is in tip top shape and decorated in fun colors as well. Everything is clean and in its place. My children wake up everyday so excited for "school" and I have to peel them away at the end of the day. Our family is so happy with decision we made for our children to attend Earthshine. My husband and I both work full time and neither of us ever worry about the care they are receiving from these amazing ladies!!!
Julie Turlington has many years in child care and school background and education. She has made Earthshine one of Fayetteville's best schools and child care centers. Congratulations Julie!
