I'm a traveling therapist in the area and I've heard that the staff enforces strange rules, such as, no kicking or throwing balls (rolling only?) and no using the swings. I also heard a rumor from another therapist that s teacher in a young classroom mocks crying children and has said "wah this is what you look like! Your mommy isn't coming!" I find a center that enforces strange rules with play and mocking and yelling at children to be disturbing! I'd recommend that you ask around before going here.

The Owner is wonderful! She has a very professional and organized itinerary of how the day is split up for the children, just as if my child would be going to a Daycare Facility. The house is always very clean, and the other caregivers that help out are wonderful. The only reason I can see how the other reviewer may have been "put off" by the owner is because she is probably the most professional about the interview process. This is her home, and her business, so not only do you have to make sure this is a fit for you and your child, but she has to do the same to make sure you are a fit for her. I wish I had found her sooner, and my child, now 2, absolutely LOVES it there!
The place is terribly understaffed to the point where the owners have to stand in for teachers and sometimes have parents stay until they can get a teacher in. Staff doesn't use gloves to serve kids food. The teachers are too busy gossiping while outside to bother keeping an eye on the kids. There have also been incidences of abusive behavior - inappropriate yelling, pushing. Not to mention there is NO EDUCATION going on here for the kids! TERRIBLE PLACE. Please send your kid somewhere they'll flourish and get the attention they need - not here.
