I called in because DSS was considering paying for my Voucher as long as I found a day care before my appointment and I was being placed on a job so everything was in a rush I called in spoken to Reginas daughter which runs the morning shift covers for Toddlers she was very nice and provide allot of information needed about the daycare as if I was there viewing because I explained my situation and I didn’t have the gas to come at the moment to visit because I had to obtain my daughter birth certificate so my voucher could be written off by Dss and I explained to her that my mother will be coming to visit the daycare in place of me because she lives in Raleigh and I trust her judgement then she said find if possible tell her to come before 11 she can talk to me because she states she takes care of Toddlers so I said okay I will let her know. After that I hung up the phone and called back for a question I forgot to ask but this time Reginas Husband answered and he was very rude talking about idk if we can work with your training schedule I’m like she told me you 1,2 and 3 shift is open?! He like yes so what you mean?! Then he like we will have to meet you first and what did my daughter tell you I don’t think that’s right bull crap!! Then I showed up because my mom wasn’t able to make it she was rude like yeah you have to let us know ahead of time bull crap you can call and let Regina know or his daughter I came way from Fayetteville for that bs then he was rude like we don’t do drop in I’m like I’m not dropping my daughter off and don’t know your facility explaining to him how dss work he like ik so why you ask me about a drop in then the daycare from my peel view looked old and smelled old I will never bring my child somewhere like that because one thing I don’t play about is my Baby and if I’m giving you money sell me on why I should suppose your business his place looks like they put no money back into there business
Run !!!!!!!! Don't send your kids here!!!!! She'll have you looking crazy in the mornings, when you have to be at work in the next 20 mins & she won't answer the door. She'll call you back, a hour later and say sorry I didn't hear you at the door. She'll kick your kids out of the daycare, due to being mad at other parents for not paying their tuition. Very unprofessional. Don't waste your time and your kids education.
If I could rate the teachers separately from the front office personnel I would rate the teachers FIVE STARS! The teachers are phenomenal! Beware...if your child has a bad day (hour), a tantrum, an adjustment period, or any other typical or perceived as atypical toddler behavior that does not meet the expectations or skill set of the front office personnel then you will be asked to pick your child up as the only behavioral management tool is REDIRECTION; as told to me, "they are not equipped to handle children like this as a smaller school setting would be better. They don't want other children to see this behavior and visiting parents may think they are abusing children" (factor in these variables: 1 1/2 weeks of attendance, adjustment to a new school and new people, three-year toddler behavior, a flagrant comment that insinuates your child would be better served somewhere else after ONLY 2 out of 9 days of attendance of having a tantrum, not 9 out 9 days BUT 2 out 9 days, and whatever other factor that would entail beginning a new child care center (also, if visiting parents cannot distinguish between child abuse and behavior management then there is a whole other issue)). Hopefully, you work a job that allows you to leave to pick your child up in the event, which is likely, that your "problem" child cannot be "controlled." Now...if you are able to leave your job and go to the school and personally REDIRECT your child, with success, as your child is now CALM and QUIET...you will STILL have to take your child home regardless of the tuition you paid for trained professionals to care for your child. If you are okay with being made to feel like you are a bad parent, with a bad child, who is a terror, exhibits atypical toddler behavior (or at least according to the front office personnel's standards as "EVERY" child in that school is an angel and does not have a bad day) then this is the place for you.
This daycare is extremely professional. My younger cousins attended this daycare for years, and the environment is extremely warm, safe and friendly! In the future when I do choose to have children, hopefully she will still own this business because if so, they will certainly be enrolled in this facility! I truly love how the respect is mutual when communicating with Ms. Pamela, and I can't wait to discuss enrollment for my children in the future!
I am amazed by the professionalism as well as the passion the owners have for all the children in their facility. All the teachers were very nice and really cared for their well being. I would recommend you bringing your child to a warm environment.
No no no. I am a professional daycare director in Nags Head with two teaching licenses. I was not impressed at all.
Such an amazing place! Maryann and literally ALL her staff is wonderful! After using different forms of childcare my child is literally the happiest here!! I feel so confident in leaving my child in their care. Fun, convenient, super clean, no stress! My child is so happy they genuinely care for my child - so much love! Safe boundaries and fun!! They are amazing! A+++
HORRIBLE DAYCARE!!!! BE AWARE STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unprofessional Owner, Dingy, High turnover rate, They will label your child using outside vendors to compensate
Absolutely liked this place!!! My daughter had so much fun!!!! as soon as we left and was in daddys shoulders she was falling asleep!!! The place is awesome, I especially appreciate that 1. no matter how much mess there is tons of staff there to clean it up....and 2. that the staff is super amazing with my daughter!!! my daughter was not at all shy to say hello or talk !!! and I love that there is an infant zone in most of them!!!! very convenient and it excites me to bring my baby in November that even my infant can enjoy!
Went here today with our 4 year old and 6 month old and had a great day of hands on activities and learning through play. This is definitely something Toronto needs, our older daughter took part in all the scheduled activities and had a great time and it was so nice to have the play mat areas with mirrors for infants in every room, as it allowed both parents to watch the fun both children were having without either of us being left out. It can be pricey, however it was was worth it the staff were friendly and attentive and always giving advice. Considering how busy it can get it was very clean and staff could be seen always restocking paper, craft supplies, sorting and cleaning toys. Everything is child friendly from lots of high chairs, stools in the bathroom and a comfy nursing room. So sad it ends on the end of the year but will definitely support the building of a permanent centre.
