They get zero stars! All the positive reviews are fake they are a dangerous organization , who do not care for your child its all about money. The staff is not properly trained and they abused a friends children on camera. Justice will be served how dare you do those things to 2 year old children or any age children. This company covered up theire wicked employees dirt!!!!
I was told by the local school, that children who attended Short Stuff are always well prepared for 1st. grade. I had a great experience there and would encourage any parent to send their child to this center.
I usually don’t write review but after reading some of the other reviews as finding out that my great grand son no longer attends this daycare, I though it was time to give my opinion as a great grandmother . My great grandson went to this daycare. My grandson and his wife was looking for a place once she decided to return to work after 2 years . Being it was close to where they live , they thought it would be perfect for my great grandson After visiting the facility with him and seeing they had all they were looking for including surveillance all over. They were pleased and he started a week later . Well I guess they should have asked if they also had audio with the surveillance system. My first time picking him ( which I never did before) As I approached where he was I heard someone talking to a child in a stern but loud voice. I actually thought it was a parent talking to their child . To my surprise it was a staff member I didn’t like what I heard and called my grandson as soon as I got in the car. From that point on My granddaughter in law just keep quiet but keep her eyes and ears open ( no pun intended)she just started having conversations with other parents and also talking to her son who was 3 at the time and very verbal . Just asking him how was his day and what he did today(as they always did ) on seraval occation they were told Ms (blank)yelled at ...and he would say the child’s name .He also told them that a little boy was pulled . They really didn’t no what that meant so they had him show them . Needless to say they took him out. They never said anything to anybody .Why they didn’t say anything I really don’t no, I think they just didn’t know what to do. This is why I’m writing this report and pray that things are or will get better there because of the reviews . I feel By saying something it might help thing get better for the child that don’t have a voice and for the parents who entrusts they’re precious gifts in the care of others.
Great atmosphere, save environment. Friendly staff and clean place. It is the best daycare ever . my daughter wants to stay there longer every time I go to pick her up.
The children are absolutely great and adorable and the teachers in the nursery, pre k and kindergarten classes are wonderful they have patience and are so kind to everyone including the children. The two classes that have toddlers (1 and 2 yo) dont seem to have much patience with the children. They yell and scream at the children and wonder why they don't respond, they even comment saying "you drive me to drink" and comments like "you are the worst kid" or "you are the sloppiest kid I've ever met" I even watched a teacher slam a toddlers arms and legs down for a nap because she was frustrated and it sadden me so much. I witnesses this for 4 days and tried to get my boyfriend and mother to encourage me to speak about because I was scared it could cost me my job but as a mandated reporter I spoke with the director Beth about what I saw and she called me on a Saturday morning. She NEVER once spoke on her empathy of what I saw but only that I didn't have commen sense for eating peanuts while the children ate lunch because it wasn't my lunch break. This is not a caring environment for toddlers. Nor great employees with excellent work ethics in those classrooms.
Terrible program with incompetent director and lead clinician. They have to go before program will improve.
The teachers care about my child like no other! Very caring and compassionate staff - my child is just blossoming here! Love all these wonderful people!
Our son just graduated from JCDS and it was a great 5 years. The owners are very friendly and always available. The teachers and staff were great. I'm confident my child is ready for 1st grade. Thank you for everything! Highly recommended!!
best daycare in the area ,beautiful place ,wonderful teachers
