I can't believe this place hasn't been shut down yet. They're understaffed, under-trained, and dangerously complacent.

This place failed to meet the basic needs of my son. The negligence was so clear after 1 day that we never took him back. We brought our 2 year old here and felt reassured since they have cameras. Thank god I have a job where I was able to have the camera feed up most of the day! I witnessed my son being dragged by the arm by a staff member because he wouldn't go to his cot for nap time. I'm assuming this set him off because then he cried for about 10 minutes, while that staff member sat on the floor (not engaged with any other child) and never once tried to console my son. Keep in mind he's 2 and this was his first day. Finally the manager came in and consoled him, after which he went to bed. I also saw that at some point my son got out of the room, and was handed back to the teacher over a partition to rejoin the class. The final straw was when I went to get my son. I found him outside crying uncontrollably for WATER, while the teacher stood inches away ignoring him. My kid is 2 so he says "bater", but any moron could figure out that a completely flush red toddler who was playing outside in the over 80 degree heat wanted some damn water. She said she thought he was crying for "mommy". I asked how long he'd been crying, she said 15 minutes. I asked if he had been given any water during the day and she said he had 2 sips of apple juice and that was it. What kind of a care taker can't connect the dots to realize this poor kid needed water??? The water fountain on the playground was not functional. When I went in to get my son and initially spoke to the director about what I had seen on the camera, she was unaware that he had ever gotten out of the classroom. Afterwards when I voiced my concerns about the lack of water offered to my son, I was told that the reason he began crying was because he became anxious when they joined his classroom with the older group to play on the playground. No, my son was crying because he was thirsty.
I cannot say enough good things about Childcare Network in Hamburg. My older son has attended the school since he was 12 weeks old - he is now almost 4! The facility is well ran and always very clean. The staff has become family. They love my kids and treat them as if they were their own. My older son has learned so much over the years and will be fully prepared when it is time to start kindergarten. It is such a warm and loving environment.
My 10 year old son attended the after school program at childcare network. The after school program does not separate the kids by ages so the kindergarten children through 5th grade children are all in the same small room. The after school teacher is great, but she is not given the tools she needs to run a successful program. I had to pull my son out of the program before the school year ended because my son had trouble getting along with all the kindergarteners. The program is good if you have a young child in kindergarten or first grade, but the program has nothing in place for older children in the program. J.T.
DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE. I made the horrible mistake of sending my 5 year old and 9 month old sons to this horrible place for about a week. I witnessed one of the employees (on their website video feed) throw a blanket over my 9 month old's head because he was crying on the floor and the walk out of the room. He sat there screaming with a blanket over his head for about 10 minutes, alone, before he finally pulled it off. When I confronted the managers of this "day care", they told me that was how they deal with children. I really wish I was joking, but I am not. Trust me when I tell you that your children will not be safe at this place. I only wish someone had told me before my children were put in harms way.
