My daughter attended Wonderful Beginnings for 3 years and I could not have been more pleased with the owners and staff. We were greeted every morning with a smile and left every afternoon with a hug and an " I hope you have a great night, we can't wait to see you tomorrow!" My daughter's safety, well-being, and happiness was always # 1 to them. If I could give them 10 stars I would!
I cant say enough positive things about Harpers Christian Daycare. I took my first baby there for full time care at 12 wks of age.. was nervous, bu…
Loving and caring daycare! Overall this daycare is amazing. I decided to write a review due to numerous of negative reviews from an individual who is a former employee and goes by the name Grace G., Grace H., Clinhuman or her birth given name Clintisha. I believe this person is trying to find a way to hurt Little People Big World Academy business by putting out false accusations. I have complained about this former employee numerous of times because I didnt feel safe leaving my child in her care. In my case she needs to be mentally evaluated and NO child should be left in her care. Check out LPBWA for yourself, staff memebers and owner are very professional.
AMAZING to say the least! Very impressed with the amount of learning that went on in my son's 1yr old class. Truly exhibited that they are truly a learning institution even with the young ones, he is now 2amd still learning at a steady rate. The staff and teachers are extremely easy to work with. My son has been there since he was 3 months old and I've had not one issue. Would highly recommend!! My son runs inside in the morning and doesn't want to leave in the afternoon...that speaks for itself
Very unprofessional management! Parents are spoken to like they are children and often told by management that they need help. Also, they tend to think parents over react to situations they have been caught in with there pants down. Allergies, Asthma, and other life threating notices are taken with a grain of salt. I am very disappointed in the management who often tells me they have been in business for 14 years, but still lack the fundamentals of customer service. I cannot be loyal to a business that cannot be loyal in--and out--of my presence. Don't send your child to this school, you are asking for unanswered questions, ridiculous prices, and crappy education (formulated by the owners who have NEVER been to college...how can you teach unless you have been taught?). You've been warned!
To Whom It May Concern:I have known Jay and Debbie Randolph for over 5 years. They started watching my son Tyler when he was less than 9 months old. They have always treated him well and as if he was their own. They loved him and have taught him morals and values from the time he could understand. He calls them Nammie and Papa because to him they are his grandparents. They have always been a constant in his life and watch him on occasion now, when needed, since he has started school and no longer needs the childcare during the day. They have also watched my daughter Emma since she was 3 months old; she is now 3 years old. She loves them so much because they are the kindest people to her and treat her also as their own grandchild. Their home and business is filled with love and laughter. No child is ever mistreated and there is always respect for each person at the location whether they are coming or going, child or parent. They make you feel welcome and loved from the moment you meet them and would do anything to help someone. They are selfless when it come to the children and give them all the attention and guidance that they would need from the tiniest babies to the older children dropping in for the parent’s time out. I would recommend Jay and Debbie Randolph to anyone that has children of any age needing reliable, responsible and caring childcare. They have a clean home and my children have never been sick while in their care. They have play areas that are safe for the children to play and they are always supervised. They do so much with the children to make sure that they are developing and include the parents in daily updates on the children’s behavior. They feed them nutritious meals with several snacks a day and provide drinks throughout. I will always give a great reference for this couple because they are of the best caliber of childcare that anyone’s money can buy. My children love them and always ask to go to Nammie and Papa’s house because they love being there.Sincerely, Inez
I worked here but could not take it there. I cannot describe the rudeness that they treated me or the little ones with. As soon as parents are out of earshot. They yell at the little ones, embarrass them.. ect. I saw food left out for hours in the open then served to children. Super childish and rude folks not to mention GHETTO. Dont let Marie fool you.... she is probably the NASTIEST person I have ever met. HER ATTITUDE IS DISGUSTING. DSS would have a field day with all the violations. There staff to child ratio for the older children is way under par. Do not send your children here. They crush their little spirits with the disrespect. When your child is emotionally torn apart from coming to this place on a regular basis you will have to live with yourself.... for choosing the WORST childcare facility I have ever known.
Unprofessional, rude, and dirty. I do not recommend anyone send their kids here. They should not be in business!
Both of my kids have been and are at Wonderful Beginnings. My oldest was there since they opened back in 2010 and graduated from WB this past year. He is now in K-5 and he is well beyond his grade and that's because of the wonderful education and care they provide at wonderful beginnings. My youngest is an infant and I love the quality care that's she gets. If you are upset about the price think about the great services they provide. I am happy with my kids tenure at WB from Summerville to Columbia. Yes Columbia! Because when I moved to Columbia I was able to get the same great care at a great cost in Columbia. The owners are great and have become like family. I wouldn't have it any other way. Their family has been and will always be a blessing to mine.
This daycare is the most unprofessional place I have ever had to deal with. The director and the very immature, rude little girl do not know how to behave in front of kids or adults. On my way out from picking my children up at 610 pm, the manager Marie decided to inform me that if my kids are going to be at the center longer than 10 hours per DSS I would have to pay them 20 dollars per kid per day I was late. I told her that would not be possible seeing as how I work in North charleston. I will probably have to take them out. The next morning I decided to find out what I assumed was just her uneducated young self and the fact that she loves to hear herself talk. So I decided to email the director of child services. I got a call the same afternoon from the director who informed me there is no such policy and hasn't been since 2005. The daycare is trying to scam money and use DSS as the reason why they have to. I then informed these people how upset I was to get lied to and have them demand more money on top of the large sum I already pay them. I was very upset and told them they will get a week notice and can use the deposit for payment. I also informed her that I am going to tell the other parents how Nasty and unprofessional this daycare center is. Lisa the director told me that I could no longer bring my kids back since I filed a complaint. So I demanded I get paid my deposit, she of course being the hypocritical Christian she claims to be showed her true colors. She then went back and forth with her story saying it's wonderful beginnings policy now. This center closes at 630 pm and will try to get as much money out of you as they can. My children hated it here, and complained about the way the workers talked nasty. I plan on informing everyone what kind of place this is.
After setting up several meetings to go on a tour, I showed up for a tour and was told no one was available and I needed to come back later. Luckily I live close to the center. I came back later that afternoon but no one answered the door. After standing outside and ringing the door bell for almost 5 minutes, I decided to call. Ms. Marie came to the door and said "Why didnt you take a tour earlier". I let her know her staff refused to give me a tour because everyone was on lunch. She then says "Well Im in a classroom right now" and closes the door. She NEVER attempted to schedule a future tour or follow up with me. I never went back or called. Very unprofessional. For her to close the door on my face was out of line and beyond unprofessional. I can image how they treat the students. After reading these reviews, Im very happy we did not go with this center.
