There was a lack of communication when dealing with parents and attention to the fact that each child may require differing care styles. We were told that the center had great communication with parents. This was untrue. The truth: the daycare would sometimes tell the parent at the END of the day that the child had failed to eat, or that the infant (5 months) had drank a dangerously low amount of formula (5 oz in 6hours). There are no alerts for the parents as these events occur throughout the day, prior to your child being miserable. The daycare takes no responsibility for these patterns and seems to shrug off any possible causal behaviors fromt heir end. We were told that it is us who can’t be made happy and so that we were free to leave. The toddler room teacher was a huge factor in our deciding not to attempt ironing out the issues. This woman was the opposite of what we would expect as a full time childcare personality. She never smiled, she was completely unapproachable, she would argue if we attempted to explain anything about our child (i.e. he doesn’t like milk, or does not typically nap well away from home), and she was generally abrasive and confrontational at every turn. On our last visit to this center she aggressively confronted me THREE times in my attempt to collect my children and leave the building, while my 2 year old was frightened and in my arms. Our impression was she did not like children. I had to avoid interaction with this surly-aggressive-opinionated woman at every turn and visit to center. I felt very untrusting when leaving my toddler in her care.I was made late to appmts and work due to the toddler room teacher demanding that I change my son’s diaper upon arrival and that it was not her job because he had soiled his diaper on ride to the center-because I have any control over a two year olds potty timing.

Great place to bring your children, awesome staff with quality care. Come by and check us out. Working hard to educate all children!
All 3 of my kids have gone to this daycare over the years. I've dropped in at various times to get them early for appointments and such and have seen the hot meals they serve for breakfast and lunch, various parties for the kids and outside activities. The staff is happy and fun and the kids are cuddled and sang to regularly! TV time is earned and the kids look forward to Friday for a good behavior treat. My kids have always hugged hello and goodbye to the staff. My oldest child was even bummed he wouldn't be going after school because of his other commitments! Anytime my children had a bruise or if another child had been ugly, I was notified. The rates are well within expectations for the area, also. While the daycare is small, the kids have space to play, eat and nap. A very kind hearted owner, as well. She seems to really enjoy all of the children!
This is THE Best daycare I have had. My daughter has learned to recognize letters and colors and is well taught at the age of 2 1/2. She has learned to speak more words and sentences since she has been there. The Staff are Great. They worked with me when I was potty training my daughter. This was the best choice I have made since I got stationed here. God Bless everyone that works there
