Walking in I felt welcome I was actually excited to be in a room that I didn’t have a lot of experience in. The staff for the most part was friendly and the kids were great! After all I was there for the kids anyways. However in my gut I just knew something wasn’t right. And sure enough.. first day on the job I experience the ones teacher YELLING at the children particularly picking on one or two children . She wasn’t afraid to pull or push them around. At lunch or provided snack they would give the children forks and expect them to use the forks .. some Barely just turned 1! They had about 10/15 mins depending on the teachers mood to eat. If they didn’t or couldn’t use the fork it would be trashed right in front of the child. At nap time that particular teacher had them on mats at 1130 and kept them on the mat until 230 . A ONE YEAR OLD! So if they dare make a noise be scared or get up they are shoved back down and held there until they go back to sleep. I wanted to cry because these babies had no voice to stand up for themselves. It’s child led so the daycare has to make a lesson for the state standards but it’s not typically implemented I think they have a years worth of art on the wall to make it look like they are interactive. ABSOLUTELY NOT. These babies need to sing songs play with you work on fine and gross motor skills learn through discovery and sensory. Open your eyes if you tour look at mats .. baseboards bathrooms it’s dirty. I know kids are messy! But this is far more than everyday dirt. Well folks.. not here. I wanted to actually beg parents to remove there child.. NOW I’m sure in the center there’s a small few maybe one or two that love the children.. I just personally haven’t seen that.
I started bringing my son here about 3 years ago. I researched many different daycare's before picking Kreative Kampus. I chose them for because they had excellent hours, provided diapers, great rates, solid credentials and it was on my way to and from work. Three years later I'm glad I chose them. The women there are friendly and always have a smile. If they notice anything different about my son they call me right away. They also provide "ouchie reports" for the little boo boos that happen in a little dudes day to day. They are even quick to tell me of any cute events or things that happened while he was there. Like most things nothing is ever perfect; However they have handled every incident appropriately and made documentation available. They even helped in potty training my little guy! It's also super helpful that the staff reinforces the values and acceptable behavior that I reinforce at home. Because of their support he was easy to potty train & is well behaved
I have to also say that Allison, Frances and Monique are great in being helpful and understanding and are by far very friendly and kind to my son. They seem to hear what you have to say and fix any problems that may arise. I know that there are people that aren't going to give great reviews all the time, but I am one parent that can see that they do try to make the parents and child/children happy.
