The staff truely loves the children. Great Center. Lots of learning playing and exploring! Bright friendly atmosphere.
My daughter went here for a month and 2 weeks. The ladies in the infant room are nice. But they clipped my daughters nails without permission and took a chunk out of her finger. My daughter is only 3 months old. Then acted like they didnt know they cut her. The director is very rude and not understanding and yelled at me on the phone multiple times. I do not recommend taking your kids there cause if you have a issue the director will not care and gets defensive and rude.
My child loves it there. However, her house is a bit small. I wish it was a little bit more spacious for the kiddos to move around and play but the back yard is a great size for them to run and play in when the weather isn’t too bad. I recommended this daycare to new parents as most of the parents I've met that bring their kiddos here are first timers. From what I was told, the daycare provider used to work in her mom’s day care from a very young age up till her mom retired. From what I've seen and what my child says when he comes home, is that she is super caring and loving. Since we sat down and completed the enrollment process up until now, she has been very professional and very detailed in her work. You can tell she loves what she does.
Do not take your children here ! I went to pick my 7 month old up early for an appointment and the owner now her husband were home ??? But her mentally ill father and brother were watching my child ??? What in the world??
In response to Madison's review: We understood the concern as a first time working mom having to trust new people to care for her children. What she did see on the playground was her son adjusting in the first 30 minutes of being dropped off. He was crying, as many new kids do. The staff tried several techniques to calm him, but under my advice I said to give him options then give him a moment to calm on his own. When he came inside he found a book he liked and the whole momentum changed. Understandably it's hard on both parents and kids to make the adjustments so quickly. On behalf of the staff and facility we regret that was her experience, but many kids take time to settle. We work with many different kids and put our best into helping them in that stage.
I think m2m2m2 may be a disgruntled worker. My nieces go to Ashley's House and it is amazing. I am a former daycare worker myself as well as a former elementary teacher. The things my nieces learn there astound me daily. Also - my nieces have had consistent teachers and love them. I would recommend Ashley's House to everyone without hesitation.
Price for Daycare is very affordable, BUT you get what you pay for. She does not treat your baby like you would. She will yell at them and not give them attention when needed as in her own words "They are big kids now". She says she does not want to "baby" them. If you want a daycare provider that will actually CARE for your children and not treat them like they are independent this is not the daycare for you. I do not recommend this daycare provider. My child is a toddler and still has needs. This provider would fail to change the dirty diaper multiple times and would aggressively wake up my child when I arrive for pickup when my child was napping.

My family and I are new to the area and have been searching for a church home. The pastor at New Spring is a wonderful speaker. The church is big but I have been to big churches and they still know how to bring people together. This church does not find that important. You can come here week after week and no one will say a word to you unless they have the duty of door greeter. It is a shame because I would love to stay here for the preaching but we need fellowship too. If you want to get involved in anything else at this church, there is a short window to sign up but if you miss that window you have to wait for the next window which could be months away. I also find it distracting with all the coffee that is brought into the sanctuary...a girl sat next to me one week and could not stop slurping...just took away from the worship experience.
At first, I loved this place because the owner appeared caring and the place that always clean (which is more than I can say for other providers). I knew that my child would not necessarily have structured activities as it was a daycare, not a preschool, and we intended to move her when we felt she was at an age to start absorbing material. But as this lady aged and others who were not responsible moved into her home and took up responsibilities that were hers alone, things went downhill. We started to smell cigarette smoke inside the home . . . sometimes very strong. When we mentioned that to the owner, she denied it at first. Then, when no further denials would work, she stated that it was simply her husband who smoked in his garage and came in occasionally smelling of smoke. I am aware of that type of smell, and this was NOT simply from him coming in. It kept getting stronger . . . when children were there. Next, we started noticing that our baby was getting HORRIBLE diaper rash . . . and it was daily. She said it was just because our child's stomach was acidic and we were new parents, so we didn't know. However, I know now that she was evidently leaving my child unattended for long periods of time without changing her. This is actually abuse. Yes, she also has the TV blaring at all times. I figured that she might at least have occasional quiet time for kids to color, play imaginary games, read to them, etc. This did not occur . . . EVER. The last straw was when, after all of the items listed above, another child was introduced to the mix. He was ill-tempered and his mother was known for not making payments when they were due. This child, 6 months YOUNGER than mine, started picking on my child physically. At first, he was biting her. I know kids do that sometimes, but they are typically disciplined and learn to stop the behavior. This child persisted and I began to see frequent teeth-sized bruises and welts on various parts of my child's body. After the third time this occurred, I informed the owner that we would take our business elsewhere unless this other child stopped his behaviors and our child had a safe place to be. The last day our child ever attended was a horrible one. The same biting child listed above was found to have knocked my child down and was JUMPING on her outstretched arm. Yes, it left bruises and we count ourselves lucky that the arm was not broken. My child is not aggressive. I told her to fight back, but she, unfortunately here, doesn't have the nature. The owner was STILL not ready to get rid of this other mean child. Regardless, we were out the door that day and never even came back for her clothes. I advise to NEVER go to this place. It may have the appearance of cleanliness and order, the owner might seem nice, but that is not the way it is. Put your child somewhere safe! Sugar and Spice is NOT it!
