3 Managers in 2 months and counting, lack of structure and unreasonable fees. Inconsistency with staff turnover and "assigned" rooms when picking up/dropping off children. No financial transactions go through the site- everything goes through "corporate" which is based in Florida. Multiple violations with Dept. of Social services- most recently for leaving out cleaning products in a Pre-k room (check for yourself). Save your time and money- go to the YMCA.
First, I find it very interesting that Laura L.'s post is identical (verbatim) to Eileen Davidson's post on Facebook. Sounds like some haters with an ax to grind to me...is all I'm saying. Very happy with Salem Fields. If our family can't be together after school, I'm happy knowing the boys are being well taken care of and looked after at Salem Fields. They always have great things to say about the teachers and their experiences there.
The Salem Learning Center in Fredericksburg, VA has improved tremendously! My children are now in a safe and leaning educational center, not just in a babysitting setting. The current director and NEW personnel are very professional, fully qualified, who provide good examples and manners to the children. They are not over ratio any longer because the current teachers and staff knows and understand the local and federal regulations. The Salem Learning Center has now a true curriculum plan delivered by well educated and experienced teachers. My children love this place!! Of course, teachers who think this place was a babysitting setting refused to help improve the processes and decided to damage their reputation. I work in peace each day while my children are in a safe and learning place. Highly recommend the Salem Learning Center!
After using Salem Fields for many years, we finally pulled. The center was great with Ms Pam but since The new director Ms Stephanie, it has gone down hill. The classrooms were always over ratio when I picked up my granddaughter. The school age teacher was sleeping when a parent was dropping off and they had to wake him up. My daughter caught the 2s teacher grab a child by the shirt and started screaming in his face. She has called the kids "f****** brats". The kids will be in the tie down chairs for hours at a time for "time out", a teacher once told me. Another teacher, fell asleep holding a baby and later put another child in the bouncer without strapping the child down and she fell out. Two teachers that were in the infant room did not feed a baby for six hours. I was told by another teacher, two teachers fed a formula fed baby another baby's breast milk and the breast fed baby the formula. There was a teacher that let a child open the back door and that child ran out and was found in the front parking lot. The director leaves mentally challenged teachers alone with the kids. I 100% agree with mentally challenged working with kids but not alone. All these issues have been told to Mrs Stephanie but these teachers still work there. Only thing she says is that they will be put in more training which I believe has not been done yet.
I have found this daycare center to be outstanding. I have had children attend here since they opened. In fact, we were one of the first families to register to this school. Our children love going there and we have never had any issues. The tuition prices have stayed affordable for us, so we are happy too.
I am very pleased with this daycare! I had a very messy family situation on hand when coming here and the staff at Kindercare made me feel as if my child was safe and well taken care of. They are very family oriented and beyond welcoming. Although my daughter is only in one classroom with a set of teachers, every morning every teacher welcomes us. I can't even put into words the help they have provided my family and the gratitude I feel I owe Breezewood Kindercare!
My four children currently attend Creative Childcare. This is a great place and my children seem to love it. They do loads of arts and crafts for all of my children even my youngest. My oldest gets to go to awesome places and is so happy when I pick him up. I love the teachers! They always have reports ready for me and let me know when I need to bring something the next day. The owner is great. She greets us when we drop off the children and makes sure that we have everything we need and all of our children are super happy all the time. They all get little stickers or treats from the director when they have had a great day and did all of their work. Love this place, couldn't expect better from anywhere.
This is not a the place you send your child to the owner is fake and the co-owner they will smile in your face and they are not about their word. The children are served basically the same thing everyday with water down apple juice. Some of the employee's ate rude the owner mrs.B knows nothing about childcare all she's does is regulate and throw out demand's I've had a friend that's sent her child there and has came home plenty of time not having knowledge of anything her child has came home with red marks and stracthes on her back. Its just horrible all around but of coarse they will smile in your face at first like everything's ok when the whole day the child learns nothing. .
I do not recommend this place to anybody's family nor if you are to apply here DONT DO IT! The owner's are fraud they will let you go without a warning the same snacks are served everyday the apple juice is watered down the owner orlf the place does not know what she's talking about ever she knows nothing about childcare she only owns the place but again knows nothing! Do not send your kids here they will not get a good nutritious meal. The employees talk 24/7 its just all around horrible.
