When we started munchkin junction, we saw the post here about Kids who need extra attention, and how MJ was unable to provide that, and we dismissed it, as our kids seemed fine. Since that time, our toddler has been diagnosed with some developmental delays, and has picked up several concerning behaviors (that he only, oddly, displayed at the daycare). Since he began requiring extra attention, we received constant feedback from the owner and workers in which the suggested that we should leave. We decided to stick it out, but we were eventually expelled after our son hit another child in a common area on an understaffed day. Our older son did well here, and enjoyed his time there. The teacher, who is leaving, was caring and kind, and was glad to give extra attention and feedback. In the end, if you have a 4 to 7 year old of average abilities and behaviors, this is your place. If you have a toddler, or a child who needs extra attention, you should probably go somewhere else.
My one year old daughter has been at Papa Bear for a few months now and we haven't had any problems with management or injuries and I certainly haven't worried about the adult to child ratio. They seem to have it under control. The management is very friendly and willing to have real conversations with you as well as fill you in on all the activities they did that day, how your child behaved, and new things they learned for the day. They actually care that you want to know about the little things and are more then willing to take the time for every parent. I suggest touring it and checking it out for yourself because it really is a great place for kids!
I love this daycare. My son has been going from age 18 months to 3 years. The staff are all very friendly and seem to love their job. It always smells fresh (unlike other daycares). They keep the kids active with activities and they have an indoor Gym!! Regarding previous review by pplusz. They must have improved the way they do their books because I received an accurate year end statement for 2013 tax year.Thanks and good job to Creations of a Child!
My kids love it here! They are never ready to leave. The staff is outstanding, and we love the activities that are planned. Kids could never get bored with all the field trips, guest speakers, and fun toys! The owner and staff make sure there is always something new and exciting to look forward to, whether it be a trip to the zoo, pool, or Cox Honey in Shelley. Your kids will love this place! Best in IF!
Love, love this center. Wonderful program. The owner is very kind and a great teacher! My children have been attending for 8 years.
