I have 2 children in this day care. My daughter's been there since infancy and is now going into kindergarten. She attended A Beautiful Child's preschool program and when tested by the school district for kindergarten, they said she was "extremely kindergarden ready". I was asked if she had attended preschool. I told them yes, A Beautiful Child. They told me that all the children who come out of A Beautiful Child's preschool program are advanced and only have to attend the shorter kindergarten program! I was not surprised. This is an outstanding daycare run by professionals. Director has a Masters degree in Social Work and the curriculum was developed by a early education teacher. Place is immaculate, staff is kind and loving. I just enrolled my newborn son and I can drop him off with complete peace of mind. Daycare isn't cheap, if you do not receive any assistance from the state it can be difficult sometimes. The owner here has compassion and is willing to work out payment plans.
This is one of Pocatello's finest daycares. The staff is very friendly and really go above and beyond while caring for the children. I would certainly reccomend this daycare to my friends!
My kids are enrolled in Lil Stars Daycare and my experience has been the complete opposite of the previous reviewers. I did a thorough, on premises investigation of every available daycare in this area before choosing them to care for my kids and they really did come out on top in every way...professional, well trained and HAPPY staff, immaculately clean facility, prompt responses to parental communications, and a huge variety of state of the art toys. I can't say enough good about Lil Stars and hope any prospective clientele will do themselves a favor and go check it out for yourselves.
Horrible AWFUL daycare that I ever have seen. Don't have your kids attend and I mean it!! I am so unsatisfied with the services they provide..Staff is highly rude
I absolutely love every staff member here. My kids have been going to ABC daycare for a couple of years now.. And my children love it! They take great care of them and I appreciate all they have done for them.. I'm a single mother and they work well with payment options as well. I wouldn't take my kids elsewhere! Being able to go to work and know that my kids are in great hands while im away makes my life a lot less stressful. Thank you ABC!
I have had my children at this daycare since they were born. one is 5years now the other one almost two. I love this daycare!!!! my children are always clean and happy!!!!! home cooked meals love and attention. The preschool part is wonderful. I recommend this day care. they are open at 5:30am and close at 11:30. If I ahve ever had a problem with anything the staff seems to care and respect my feelings. The smells of this daycare are of food cooking. when you walk in it does not smell as a daycare. the staff is always cleaning while children are napping. I recommend this daycare
This daycare is lovely. There is a nice playground for the kids to play on and they feed the kids breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner. What makes this daycare unprofessional is one staff member actually two. Savannah is asleep instead of watching the kids and I've walked in and she is there making the children clean. I assume she is supposed to do that! It is horrible!!! She is constantly on her green iphone5 too. She is unsafe to watch the children and should be fired. Also I have seen the same thing of the staff member Lisa. Lisa yells at kids. Children should not be yelled at a daycare :( very disappointed.
I have a 6 month old child and I decided to give this daycare a try because of the hours of operation. From the very beginning I had issues. I walked in to pick up my son no one acknowledged me and one of the staff was asleep. I picked up my son and walked out. That could have been anyone taking my child. I was new and the staff did not know me. The owner and manager of the daycare "Liz" is unprofessional and rude. Clearly all about the income. The final straw was when I walked in and my six month old was crying and one of the staff was yelling at my child. I couldn't handle it. I unenrolled him immediately. That was the first daycare I have used for my first child and it was an awful experience. It made me want to be a stay at home mom.
Horrible!! Never would take my kids here the owner is unprofessional swears smokes around the kids something I don't need around mine.
This daycare is not professional or equipped for taking care of kids. They don't follow state laws an leave kids unattended very often. They have been under investigation for quite sometime. It was the worst days of my sons life. This daycare should be shut down. I even had to call the police on coming in finding my son being beat up (2 years old) by five kids NO GROWN UP WAS IN THE ROOM! Unattended an Unorganized this facility should be shut down. I fear for the safety of other kids.
