My grand-daughter went to the facility on Lark. I would NOT recommend this daycare to my worst enemy! "Staff" changes quite a bit, they "hang out" rather than watch the kids and as for snacks, cookies, pudding and CRAP is what I saw!! She came home filthy everyday, stained clothes, dirty face. One star rating is way to much in my opinion! Sad excuse for a daycare! She is at a new daycare where she comes home clean, happy and well fed! BEWARE!!
Love love love her. Great with kids and her own children. She takes time to listen to all the little ones. She loves her babies. Plenty of TLC.
Was and has not been a good experience. Staff is rude and unresponsive. I didn't believe the level of attention was up to par. Not returning.
This academy cares for my child and my family. He is greeted every morning with a smile, his teachers are very friendly and amazing. They listen to what I have to say and that makes me feel comfortable leaving him while I work. The teachers are passionate about their jobs! I wouldn't take my child anywhere else
My kids are really excelling in Kindergarten thanks to the amazing teachers at Monarch. We were treated like family from the time our oldest started as an infant until or youngest graduated last year. The family that owns the place had told us time after time how they see it as a ministry and not just a business, and it's obvious on a daily basis that they mean it. Also, they have a full time cook that makes almost everything from scratch instead of the cheap frozen processed meals that most places serve. I cannot stress enough how lucky we feel to have found this place.
Very negative place to work. Multiple problems with paychecks being nonsufficient funds ,often late, hard to get fixed. You should never have to Chase your employer around togetthe
Carpenter's kids was the first preschool I placed my son in. He was 3 and I never left him with anyone besides family. His teacher was amazing she sent me pics throughout that first day of him playing and having fun, which made me feel so much better. Everyone there soon became family. They had so many fun activities, including a circus the kiddos put on. I strongly recommend carpenters kids. I wish they were open earlier because I would have my son enrolled there again. I formed such a bond with his teacher that I still call her for advice once in a while. Can't say enough good things about this school. I also loved the playground. Go check it out and you will see why ;)
I am a teacher and I can't say anything good about this place. I feel bad for the parents who doesn't have anoother choice. Children are not taken care at anytime, they have over 4 different " teachers" who don't know nothing about educating anyone, the 4-5 year old class is a mess, they never follow the schedule, don't have procedures, my son unlearn to write the letters, to draw and to work in general. The owner got irated when I gave my 2 week notice. She didn't even asked what was the problem, I tried to tell her in a very educative way so she could take charge and action , I told her that all of her staff who I talked to before agreed with me on how disorganized and the lack of education the place offers , instead of caring for the problems and concerns me and her own staff has or have ,she asked me the names of her employees and was mad about it. The owner has no educational background or at least she does not excercise it at all .
I have visited several child care centers in the area in the last few days and Grandma Nanna's Academy & Nurturing Center ranks at the top of my list. Very welcoming and answered all of my questions!! I am very happy in my choice!
this is a HORRIBLE BAD place!!! Don't send your child here! They don't adequately watch kids, they don't follow state regulations, and they don't work with parents.
