If you have a creative, fun loving and curious kid this is not the place for you. They don't have any regular toys like a ball or car inside the toddler class room. They only have wooden Montessori work items and they teach kids the same stuff repetitively, absolutely no room for creativity and practicality. They don't bring in new toys or new aids for assisting the teachers. They absolutely don't understand a normal child's psychology, which makes me question, if anybody there are actually qualified. We were told we can't watch my kid's classroom from the outside when my kid is in the classroom, which makes me wonder how they treat the kids.

You love your child?? Don't bring your kids here. Seriously!! My son and I were traumatized by this terrible daycare. My son is 2 (just turned 2)! For someone with 20+ years of experience as a daycare provider she doesn't have reasonable or appropriate expectations for children. We talked to our pediatrician about our sons "violent temper, persistent crying and severe separation anxiety." Our doctor wrote us a note to give this lady explaining that this is how a normal 2 year old acts. Then he told me, "from a parent, to a parent" that we shouldn't take him back there.Their house is tiny and it stinks. Everyday I picked up my son he stunk like their nasty house. There were 2 separate incidents when I walked in to find the kids locked behind a babygate while she was watching tv. One afternoon I walked in to get my son and found him wandering around the house alone. I picked him up and waited several minutes until she finally came in from outside. She apologized and made up some excuse. That Friday when I picked him up she had been doing her hair and makeup....while watching 10 kids under 6 years old!!!! Each day I picked up my son his eyes were swollen from crying all day.There is a list of violations on this daycare. They can be found on the dept of human services website (it's under her name, not Kiddley Winks). She lied to us about the violations, claiming to only have one. Be sure to research for yourself. Take note of all the different dates it states that they were there to investigate a report. The repeated violations are frightening. I wouldn't trust her with a goldfish!There weren't any reviews when we met her. She has gotten my reviews taken down from Google and Facebook several times (not sure how). Keep that in mind when you only see this one bad review, she gets bad reviews deleted. She has had her mob insult me and harass me on Facebook about my review. She also had a lawyer send me a demand letter threatening me with a lawsuit if I didn't remove my review. When you meet this lady and see her house you will likely have the same gut feeling I had. Do not ignore your gut feeling! This lady is beyond sketchy!!!! Run!!!
Our children love getting up and going to preschool here. It's a family oriented business and lunches are prepared fresh. Woukdnt take my kids any place else.

This is a great school! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for their child/children to get a leg up in their acedemics. I would send my child to Step by Step all over again!
