Lied and said they would accept my disabled son. After 2 months of waiting to get into the daycare, the owner kicked my son out on the first day in the middle of the day. The owner is lazy and sits on her butt all day using her phone and hardly plays with the kids. Messy place, took my son there because I was desperate.

Cindy is dedicated and spends 100% of her time and her money to benefit the kids AND her staff. Throughout the summer is the best time to come to Cindy’s kids because she hosts tons of exciting events for the kids such as Mr. Lizard, bouncy castles, and even takes the kids to city events. The staff at Cindy’s daycare are expected to care for the home (including those who live there) as well as the children. This is part of the job description when you are hired. The staff are really good with the children and shown to be engaging the children at all times. Parents will be able to see this as well when they go to pick them up. Home made meals for the kids every single day, for 3 meals a day. My kid is always well fed and never wants to leave during pick up. I love that he has such a positive environment to go to when I’m at work. Cindy will always be my go-to!
I worked at this facility for less than 4 months...the owner Cindy is self serving and uses state paid funds to feed and take care of her own family. She knowingly withholds information in regards to childrens mental state while at the daycare so that she can cash in on them. The owner has still not paid me, and seems to think she does not have to. DO NOT bring your kids here.
My girlfriend worked here and is still waiting on her paycheck. She told me the lady plays on her phone all day and yells a lot at the staff. Focuses more on cleaning the house and serving the boss's family rather than the kids who provide a living for her. I myself am a social worker for Intellectual disability adults and can tell you some of the stuff I have heard about this business would never stand where I work.
I am so happy to have found Nichole & Half-Pint! Nichole is truly dedicated to her business & the kids. She has weekly activities & field trips...from Super Bounce to the pumpkin patch to the aquarium...they are always going places and doing fun things. She hosts and end of the school year party, and many other functions in between. My kids love it there & I feel good knowing my kids are safe and well taken care of. She helps the older kids with homework which is great, she truly is dedicated to them and providing the BEST care around. I would recommend Half Pint to anybody!
I used this daycare for years until my daughter was too old. I really liked the quality of care provided. There was crafts, help with homework and field trips. My daughter really enjoyed her time there and I appreciated the way my daughter was cared for. I would recommend to anyone looking for great daycare.
Nichole is the best daycare provider ever! My son attended Half-Pint Daycare a number of years ago, and he still has a great relationship with Nichole. She is like his second mother. Nichole treats her daycare children the way we should all want our children to be treated. She is kind and caring, yet stern when the need arises. Nichole carefully plans a daily agenda, including a combination of fun and educational activities and field trips. I completely trust Nichole with the care of my child. She has enriched my child's life and instilled the values and manners that I want my child to have. My son is a better person as a result of Nichole's guidance. I could not have done a better job by myself. I am thankful that my son had the experience of attending Half-Pint Daycare.
The best day care in Salem hands down!! The kids are always engaged and they take amazing field trips throughout the year. Nichole is Awesome!!
