We had our daughter in this facility for about 2 months, owing to a brief period in which both of us parents had to work. The manager has a pleasant and optimistic demeanor, as does the assistant manager. We liked the information sheet idea, so we could clearly communicate the daily situation. The staff usually just put "She had a wonderful day! :-) " however, and it was hard to understand exactly what transpired, or why every day was so wonderful (like N. Korea!).Although well appointed with colorful and safe play furniture, the facility is badly in need of a deep cleaning. As you enter, the vestibule walls are smeared with what seems like years of residue from very young hands. The entry system is confusing and arbitrary: we were given a code to use until our personal code was ready, but we were never given the 2nd code, so we continued using the first one. There were supposed to be sign in sheets for each parent, but it took two weeks for that to be prepared. The sign-in system is entirely voluntary, which seems to be a liability issue for both parent and school! Often, upon entry, there was no one manning the front office. The staff was highly fluid even in the two months and our baby had no fewer than 5 different staff during that time, most of which seemed to be transferred or quit shortly after they worked in the place. A few annoying things we disliked included that staff often peeked out of the front window to see what parent was about to enter. Also, the infant room was divided into two sides, and our baby was often not visible through the room window. Infants were allowed to crawl away from the carpeted areas and on to the linoleum floor and this was not safe, nor were the three wooden rocking chairs, which were a danger to falling toddlers.Finally, it took a good month for our account to be set up so we could pay on line; this seemed to be a company-wide issue, however.

Parents, I want to make you fully aware of physical injury which my 12 month old daughter had endure at this Kindercare location in Lanham, Md on 11/1/2016. My daughter was in her 3rd day at this center when childcare workers informed me that she mysteriously hit her head on the leg of a crib causing a huge knot on the right side of her head. The knot is blue and black with swelling. This is clearly a obvious sign of child neglect at this center. How is it possible that my child suffered this injury from a crib rail.I am not impressed with this service and I expect much more from a center that is charging $344.00 per week. Furthermore, I used to smell dirty diapers in the nursery which is a clear indication that the trash easy not being given dumped frequently. There were no toys or educational items for the kids to play with. I believe, this location should lose their license.
