If I could give negative stars, I would. My sons daycare was the one vandalized and set on fire a few weeks ago. Ms. Elaine was "kind" enough to open her doors for the parents and children, saying that in a tragic situation like this, the kids need to be together, not broken up. I was nothing but thankful... until.... After the first week CPS came to my home on a Saturday saying MY SON WAS LEFT OUTSIDE, BY HIMSELF, CRYING. I thought for sure there was no way and waited until Monday to ask her about the allegations. She then told me YES, "I LEFT HIM OUT THERE (and pointed to her back yard to a table 15' from the door) BECAUSE HE WASN'T LISTENING AND WAS NOT BEHAVING". He is 2 for crying out loud!!!! Thats what happens with 2 year olds occasionally!!!! She then proceeded to tell me that he is a danger to the other children and she does not want him there. He has no development issues, and is certainly not a threat or danger to anyone. Needless to say I had a few choice words for her and laughed when she told me she did not want my son there anymore, LIKE I WOULD LEAVE HIM AFTER THAT!!!!! This woman is absolutely insane and lucky that I have self control of my actions. The investigation is still open and in process. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILD WITH THIS FACILITY!!!!
This is the absolute worst place to leave your child! Don't make the same mistake I did. The owner is crazy confrontational, my child had his foot stuck in the crib when i showed up unexpectedly. I could hear my ten month old crying from outside, when I asked how long he had been crying for I was told 20 minutes by Samantha and then that she tried picking him up but he was crying in her ear. Wow you must be kidding me this is a baby, my baby!!!! I approached the owner who was rude & confrontational. To make a long story short she was screaming in my face while I was holding my son and she had a daycare full of children, I had to call the police on her. She did not care that my son had his foot stuck in the crib and perhaps that is why he was crying while her employee stood less than two feet away and did nothing but stare into outerspace as if she was on drugs. I am pursuing to the fullest extent of the law to have this place either shut down or regulated properly. Please contact me if your interested in sharing your story my email address is email@example.com. The owner Elaine Wilson is not a liked resident in the area and has a very bad reputation for causing trouble. She is also very well know by the Child Licensing & Enforcement. My regret is I did not know this before having my child at this facility.
