I was aggressively approached and verbally and physically assaulted by a Discovery Center Childcare Owner. As a full time teacher for the Department of the Army childcare services, I was dismayed at the lack of professionalism and welfare of the children present at the time of the assault. Following this incident, more than likely the parents will not be notified of the neglect for the children’s wellbeing and safety, and unfortunately, If I would have not left the building as willingly as I did, I am not sure how physical the “Owner” would have gotten with me. More importantly, due to witnessing how aggressive the owner was so willing to get with me, there is no telling how common this behavior is and how the staff members are in fact allowed to mishandle the children at this facility. Hopefully, this matter will be perused to the highest Chain OF Command and hopefully some sort of investigation is done to ensure the safety of the children at the Discovery Center Childcare.
My son loves Mrs. Becky! He has been going to Mrs. Becky's for about a year now. Mrs. Becky is just simply amazing with him. I didn't want to write a review, was afraid to lose her to any of you reading. Mrs. Becky is that great. Most her children she watches have been there since they were little, like my ds. They all seem to love her just as much. I could not have been better blessed. Mrs. Becky is tidy, and likes to keep her room clean and tidy. Which is a great, I love that my son has her as a roll model. Always happy and down to earth.
Response to Horrible Daycare......Let me start off by saying that we DO NOT discriminate against any child with a handicap, In fact our Teacher attend classes to better help the children’s needs. 1st of all when you enrolled your son you informed us he had autism, we ask for a DR note and a care plan however you cannot provide any documents that he had a special need. Also you were informed on a numerous of occasions that he was biting the other kids and hurting the other children (for no reason at all) we told you weekly that we cannot have him hurting the other children and ask for any suggestions. You were unresponsive to giving us guidance on how to help your child; this is why we ask him to leave. It's not fair to the other children to get hurt on a daily basis they should be able to come to the center and feel safe.In regards to your daughter yes she did get hurt by another child and his mom was spoken too, matter of fact the child that hurt your daughter has a slight form of autism and his mom actually has him going to a therapeutic daycare now and his siblings remained here. The staff are not low class mothers, 90% of them have their Early childcare degree and are here for the children. I’m sorry if you feel Tamera was rude she was not actually the one that asked you to leave it was the complaints from parents and staff we got in regards to you not getting help for your son or caring what he does at the center. Not once did you call Tamera in regards to his care or the letter you received so therefor she couldn’t have been rude.We wish you the best.
I am a single mother who works full time. I enrolled both my children at this facility. A girl 6 years of age and a boy 4 years of age who has autism and is nonverbal. I was told once that my son had bitten another child on his first day and never heard anything after that until they stated that he was suspended. They stated that he had been biting everyday and the staff said they have told me. This was on a Wednesday and he was suppose to return on a Monday. Saturday I received mail from them that said he was expelled from the facility. I had no idea that he was doing anything wrong and then I had to find child care for my son before the work week started. My daughter one day was punched in the eye by a older boy and had a black eye for sitting in the chair that he wanted and was not punished at all. There was a girl in her class who I witnessed hitting other smaller children. These kids who are harming others do not get in trouble and they have no problems at all. The director Tamra is extremely rude and the staff is very unprofessional. They are a group of low class mothers who scream at the kids and are as immature as the school aged children.I would not recommend this facility to anyone.
CHILDSTIME IS NEGLECTIVEFUL AND ARE PAYMENT CONS!(ZERO STARS!)Childstime started out great when my wife and I enrolled our 2 year daughter. Staff was friendly and our daughter was happy. Until a series of events started to unravel shortly after. One day I picked up my daughter from Childtime and she had blood on the back of her head that had dripped down onto her shirt. I asked the staff what had happened and none of them had a clue what had happened. My daughter said she "fell in the play area and cried." Who wouldn't notice that! Next, Childstime hired a person with a limited mental capacity to watch the group my daughter was in.(I noticed this staff member when she was raising her voice in aggressive manner towards couple kids)Also Childstime gets hot in their daycare and my daughter would be dehydrated. Childstime had a contract that payments were due on the 5th,okay. I noticed I was starting to be charged $5 processing fees and $35 late fees on the processing fees. They told me if I pay by check or cash I will be charged $5 unless I pay online. I paid online and was still charged the $5 fee. I decided to pay my balance and pull my daughter. Four months later I get collection letter for $160 in late fees on my final payment processing fee!!!DO NOT PUT YOUR KIDS HERE! ITS WORTH A COUPLE EXTRA DOLLARS A DAY TO HAVE YOUR KIDS WATCHED BY REAL PROFFESSIONALS!
