This is one of the best centers in 38128 with affordable rates and quality care. We stand on the foundation that everyone wants good care for their family but sometimes can't afford it. We have some if not the lowest rates around. Yale Road is a 3-star facility according to the Department Child Services. We take pride in our business, the families we serve, our staff and our facility. And only hire and retain the best. We want each and every family who walk thru our doors to feel like they belong here. We are highly organized and professional with over fifty years of combined early childhood experience between our administrative staff and our management. We take pride in keeping a very clean facility. People who we employ and keep on have proven time and time again they deserve to be a Yale Road member thru their work ethics, dependability, flexibility, knowledgable, professionalism and by their daily interactions with the children and families we serve. We have been open for over a year and have seen many not 12 employees come and go. You can't make them stay but you can hold them accountable for their actions. Only the ones who stay believe in themselves. The childcare industry is very demanding and challenging. In this line of work only the strong stays. Employees must be able to adhere to our policies and procedures ( employee handbook), actually show up for work, be punctual, be ready to work, be flexible from 6:30-6:30, be a team player. Most importantly, be able to educate our youth by following our curricula and keep our facility clean. Employees who are fly by night workers can't do those things mentioned above. They interview well, have great ideas but show little to no actions, once hired. Therefore, it they don't fit into Yale's program. They must move on. We have had some to quit, some to call-in repeatedly, be a no show when scheduled or think this is simply a baby sitting service that requires seating long periods of time, just to name a few. Yale is a center of learning through explorations, interactions, exposure with qualified, bonified hardworking educators who are lead by competent managers, leaders and an owner, who all collectively have a desire to bring up a generation of scholars. We have an open door policy and welcome the community to our facility to take a tour, ask questions, observe and to see it for yourself. Thank You! The Owner
coming from a previous child care center, I toured Sonshine with all of my research done. I came across these reviews and was very nervous, but, I had a friend whose daughter attended SLC and she HIGHLY recommended it. My little girl will be 4 this month and she has come so far with the teachers in the center. I asked a lot of questions and even mentioned some of these comments and found out some of the actual facts about the reviewers. Leaving on a bad note always resorts in an lashing out of some sort, especially when it's about a mommy and her baby. As far as the bleaching of toys in the hallways, any mother knows that we cannot have bleach where children can ingest or touch; that's why they did this. The office staff has been phenomenal, including the director. She is there everyday for at least a few hours. I have never had an issue with not being able to speak with her or at least get a returned call in a timely manner. The abeka program is the learning program they use and one that I am familiar with because I am a certified SCS teacher. I would recommend this center to anyone looking for a decently priced, Christian center where your kids can grow up.
I agree with meme18:) this daycare is probably one of the best around bartlett! I toured a lot of childcare centers before this one and all of the previous ones were way more expensive and not near as nice as Sonshine I am blessed beyond words that my son attends this fabulous daycare he has been attending for about 2 and half years and recently they have gotten new office staff that are both very friendly and willing to help out in any way they can. they also have done some remodeling in the office and some of the classrooms so that was the reason for all of the toys in the hall way being cleaned. So if your going to post a negative review please be sure to include ALL of the facts! For your children's safety this daycare has a security code to get into the front doors so if you are not an employee you must be buzzed in they also have cameras in each room to assure that the teachers are doing what they are supposed to so if you are looking for a daycare please consider taking a tour of Sonshine learning center you will not regret it:)
My child attended this facility from October 2014 until July 2015. The women were nothing but kind and sweet to her. Her teachers kept her engaged and routinely sent me home with practice work to assist in preparing her for kindergarten, which she was more than prepared for. I did not have any issues with my daughter repeatedly coming home sick or with rashes as other parents have complained about. Now as to the high turnover rate, I know that the management team ran a tight ship, which anyone who owns a small business must, and as the saying goes one bad apple can ruin a bunch so why wait! I am not employed or related to anyone at the learning center. PS for those concerned with forms of payment..Why don't you all research how much it cost to run a daycare and think about how much you pay for that care, then divide that up by 5. Out of that children must be fed, rent paid, utilities, payroll, insurance, maintenance, equipment, etc. Remember vouchers aren't accepted everywhere
I wouldn't suggest this daycare to anyone. Not only are they unprofessional but they are unorganized. Please do not be fooled by the warm welcomes and smiling faces. The turn over rate of employees is horrible. Their inability to keep a set team of staff members is deplorable. My son attended and within the first 6 months I had personally seen 12 employees come and go and having worked in the childcare field it is definitely not a good look to have gone through so many employees and have to meet a new teacher every other month. If you want what's best for your child/ren please go the consistent route. Kids need stability and consistency not a new person every month. It makes me wonder not about the employees but the management and why they can't seem to attain a dependable and consistent staff.
As the Director of Hope Of Glory Christian Academy we are firm believers of what our center stands for. We answer to both of these complaints with a sincere of respect toward our hard work and dedication for children. The owners, and the staff and myself are really working harder to provide a great service to all of our kids. If a parent wants to have a party at our center they are welcome to do so, yes we are a Christian center, but we have parents who want's there children to enjoy their big day. We work with all children no matter what their illness is, we are a loving kind center. These two complaints against the hundreds of great jobs we get from other social sites . So we thank you and our family members who decided to report our center, because they are mad . Thanks You....
I am so happy that my daughter goes to SLC:) she has been attending since she was about 8 months old!! This is a Christian based daycare and my daughter comes home everyday telling me something new she learned about Jesus! Everyone that works there is very friendly and welcoming when I walk in that building I feel like I am part of the family. I don't have to worry when I drop her off everyday because i know she will be taken care of and loved by her teachers:) well I could go on and on about how much I love this daycare but I will stop there please consider taking a tour of this place before you decide not to bring your child here just because of the other reviews!
I am a mother of several kids who have attended Country Home Day Care over the past 9 years. My oldest daughter and son grew up their attending from 6 weeks until they went to kindegarden. My younger kids were there this year. My kids have lead their class in reading because of the work the teachers did with them at the day care. We still laugh at the fun we had watching my son dance at a wedding. He told us" Miss Paula" taught him to dance at the day care. How fun. Love this place.
I love the whole crew at We Love Kids. My daughter has been going her since she was 2 years old. She is 6 now. They have a great staff. The owner and her assistant are a great team. I feel comfortable that my daughter is getting the best care and attention when she is there. She always comes home happy and loves to tell me about her day. She loves her teacher! Thank You, We Love Kids, for all you do!
In my 55+ years of life I have never before seen a child care facility like this one. The staff has been there for YEARS! Unheard of, right? These people love the children, genuinely helping them as they develop as well as helping to coach those rookie parents and encourage them too! My nephew attends there. I am thrilled his parents found duch terrific people to watch over him during the day.
