>> CONS : ==============

(1) The kids are FREE to RUN outside the daycare and on the main STREET without teacher supervision. I have seen kids run out of the building by themselves!!!! UNBELIEVABLE !
*** ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN ***
(2) NO accident reports provided.
(3) NO communication.
(4) Children are given medication without calling parent first.

>>> PROS : ==============

The facility is very spacious and fun for kids. It is not over crowded and -does not- have a locker room for kids feeling.
Most teachers are very nice and honestly seem to enjoy the children and treat them like their own.
The infant room teacher is fantastic and honestly seems to enjoy the babies.
Children all age groups at times socialize together which is a very nice thing that breaks up the boredom!

>>> Other CONS : ==============

*** Dry, Unprofessional and Unfriendly daycare Directors that do NOT treat the children in a friendly manner.
Do not follow any standard daycare guidelines: no accident reports, no communication back to the parent.
I am not the only parent who thinks that.
The toddler group is mostly a baby-sitting service and children seem to play and watch tv all day. Not enough educational nor music activities.
No "we appreciate your business" feeling.

You can email alaweb@hotmail . com for more info (I am looking for affordable nicer daycares in this area, please help).

Pros: Nice Big facility. Teachers like kids.

Cons: Unfriendly Directors. No supervision. Kids run on street. No programs. No menus. No feedback.

I strongly disagree with findoutthetruth's review. I cannot speak on account of the toddlers and preschool children, but I am a parent of an infant. I know that my child is cared for daily and I am quite fond of the teachers in both of the infant rooms. They are very friendly and quite qualified to care for the children. One of them is a paramedic, and that alone makes me feel better about my child being in her care. The infants (not necessarily newborns), are played with, fed, changed, and encouraged. They are worked with on spoon feeding, sitting, introduction to cup, and other things that they will need to learn for life. Yes, at times they have to cry. But I know that they are tended to just as soon as they can be. I know these things because I make it a point to drop in unannounced so that I can find out first hand what is going on with my child. I have never heard either of them raise thier voice nor have I ever felt that my child was in danger. I am withdrawing my child too, but not because I am unhappy with the teachers. And if I could, I would take both of them with me. Your opinion should only be limited to what you have witnessed in your own child's class and not the other classes. If there are problems with the toddlers and preschoolers, you shouldn't be telling untruths about the two infant classes. I am a very satisfied parent. I am simply with drawing because I made a choice to stay at home.

You do not want to send your baby here. Spend a little more money for better care TRUST ME!! I just took my child out. They have had 7 kids taken out and two teachers leave. The staff is very unprofessional and not qualified to care for young children. The staff screams at the older children and have even told them to SHUT UP. There have been cases of a child not being changed all day. They have 6 or 7 newborns in a class with one teacher so your child will sit in a seat or a bed all day. In the older class they are not doing anything but playing and watching tv there is no learning going on. They also allow the older kids to come into the infant room. It's not a great place for any child. It's so much better to go ahead pay a little more somewhere else and feel good about the care for your child!
