They act like they care about your kids, but they really don't. They serve disgustingly unhealthy food, have kept a teacher around who is known to keep the kids in the highchair table almost the full day and have hired and kept for a time even worse teacher, make drastic changes that strongly affect the children with little to no benefit to anyone, rip people off often, and the structure and organization that they promise does not exist.
On a more personal preference note (I know many for and against this)...they don't believe in saying no...it's a naughty word. Sounds kinda nice but think about this: if your kid is say touching the oven (which they used to have easy access to, don't know about now) they will say "let's go play with this toy instead" instead of enforcing that touching the oven is bad, dangerous, etc.
But probably the worst thing in my opinion...they don't keep books/records of finances. NONE! They have no idea. They give you a written tax form thing towards the end of the year, but it's really just a guesstimate. They really have no idea. Which isn't such a big deal, I guess, if your one of the many getting free daycare because you don't pay and they don't have the backbone to stick up to you ;)
I would like to reply to this message. We keep a very accurate record of our finances. If any parents have any issues with how we run our business, please come speak with Michelle. The children do not have ANY access to the oven or any unsafe material. We are a state mandated daycare center, and we pride ourselves on good, healthy care for the children. Miss Sharon Adams does our cooking here, and she went to school for Food Service. We are funded by the food program and are required to give the children a healthy balanced diet. We do not believe in saying no, it is a very negative word. their are much better alternatives, that teach the children positive ways to be disciplined. Also, no one here is offered FREE daycare, everyone is offered the same rates to bring their children here. We would never keep on a staff member who caused any harm to the children. I work for this organization and I am proud to say I provide care for the children in this area. These allegations are hurtful, and ridiculous. This is someones obvious attempt to harm our business, and someone who obviously has personal issues with the staff here. The parents who have been bringing their business here for years know the quality of service we provide. Please, feel free to stop in anytime for a tour, or with any questions. Thanks for the chance to respond. Lindsey Adams - former 1 year old room teacher, Baby room Aide.
The directors, owners and teachers truly care & they have tought my kids worlds more than I could have tried to at home. More than just learning ABC's and 123's, they also have voluntary participation in fundraisers such as car washes for our troops, a trike-a-thon for the St. Judes Childrens research hospital, and raffles/garage sales/auctions to help out friends in need for example. My kids learned that even though they are small, they can help BIG. Everyone is special there. With competitive rates and a warm atmosphere, everyone should go to thier early learning center.
