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.
If you want your child to learn something and want him/her to have some structure, take him/her somewhere else! This is the most illegitimate "school" I've ever seen. They should rename themselves "The Goddard Circus." The owner and manager are completely incompetent. They are very abusive to the children and staff and scheme to defraud their clients and The State of Missouri. Our children (3 toddlers) come home dirty, hungry, thirsty, injured or sick daily. Sometimes all of the above.If you want your children to be neglected and mistreated, take them to The Goddard School in Springfield, MO. Ask for "Ms. Carey or Ms. Jessica." They will be happy to victimize you and your child, while charging you a mint. This place is completely bogus and will be exposed.
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.
Very happy with the care my child has received at both locations of MTLC. The staff is caring and helpful. Both centers are clean and inviting. My child is happy and we are impressed with the rate at which he is learning. I would recommend both locations to anyone I know. I also like the fact that they share inspection reports from local, state and federal inspections
Terrible place! I just witnessed a grandmother completely devastated because her 2 year old grandson has been abused at this place he has only been there one week and has come home with injuries everyday and today it resulted in a concussion. Someone needs to shut that place down they don't even do background checks from my understanding. There is no excuse. Kids get hurt sometimes this child is getting hurt every single day!!!
MTLC is a gem of a preschool. My family loves it here. Heather the owner is wonderful and Kristeen the Director is awesome. The staff is great and dedicated to the families they serve. My personal experience with MTLC has been terrific. I had car trouble last winter stuck on the side of the road. I called to let them know that I would be late. With out me asking the owner came to pick us up and help me get my car into service. This is how they go above and beyond. My daughter is happy and learning and loves her teachers. I would highly recommend MTLC. You are not going to find a better preschool in town.
I would not recommend this daycare to anyone! The morning. Girls are great but the ones that come in later neglect babies. I arrived to get my son around 430pm on April 4th my son had no pants on and no socks he was freezing. He was playing in a jumper thing I picked him up and he smelled so bad. I said something to the girls and they ignored me. I put his pants on and took him home. When I got home I took his pants off and undid his onesie he had on a clean diaper and not one I send with him they used another child's even though he had plenty. I took his onesie off and there was dried poop all over it. He had dried poop all over his back and sat in that for who knows how long!! He also had a red mark on his leg. The daycare said that he was changed at 4pm with a poop diaper but they missed it being all over him! They also said the red mark was from a chair he wasn't even sitting in when I got there so I don't believe that! They neglect kids and the girls only got a verbal warning! I moved daycares quick! I refuse to let incompetent people take care of my son! Beware!
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.
