My son also was strapped in a high chair as a way of keeping him quiet during nap time or for time out. I was sickened when one day at home and he had gotten a 'time out' when he broke down crying saying "please mommy, please do not put me in the high chair." I could not understand why he would even think it, as he had not sat in a high chair at home for over a year, then he told me about daycare and when I spoke with the director she said she did not think it mattered nor would they stop. That was the last day my children were in that center. PERIOD. To the reviewer saying that the other person talking about their issues there is a liar,how dare you? Here is my own story to back up the FACT of what happened with their child and mine, Regardless of what you think or your own experience you have no right to devalue another persons/parents and parents have the right to see the issues from all sides. And calling someone a liar for speaking up for their child is despicable.

I am very shocked and appauled at the last review. My children have been going there for over five years and I love it there All the teachers are wonderful and not teenagers so I dont know why they would say that . I know that the director has been the same since I have taken my children there and the rest of the teachers have been there for over a year or longer. I think it is sad when people put slanerous things like this when they are not true . I am a good mother and would never have my children in a daycare that would mistreat them in any way. My children love it there and the owner is a sweetheart and bends over backwards for parents.I would definetley recommend this daycare.The staff and the owner are fabulous and my kids rave about the food so to any parent looking for great quality care do take them to Lakestevens Daycare and Preschool you will not regret it!

We had our 3 year old son in this daycare because we had heard good things from our neighbors and it was just 2 blocks from our house. There are so many reasons why you should NOT bring your child here, but let me name the worst points about this place, most of which I found out after our son was here:

1. Our son was having trouble listening one day, so they kept him in a highchair for most of the day. Remember, 3 year olds aren't babies. We have a big boy and he was basically imprisoned for almost his entire day because the staff did not want to try to deal with the problem. Is this the correct way to discipline? I think not.

2. I drive by this place daily, and have seen so many things. In one instance, there were 2 boys at the end of the fenced playground. One boy was violently shoving woodchips into the other childs face, but the one staff person that was outside with the children was much too busy to notice. What were they doing that was so busy? Sitting at the top of the playground, talking on their cellphone while a child was getting bullied not far from them.

3. Their idea of staff is like a revolving door. Their staff members are almost constantly changing, which is also a problem because this is not a big place at all. I see different people (mainly teenagers, who are basically kids themselves) almost on a week-to-week basis. The only frequency I've ever seen in the staff is the owner. Otherwise, they just have teenagers who appear to have no care for any of these children. I've seen much too many examples of this, but won't go too far into it.

4. The staff do not interact or play with the children. They sit in one spot and either talk on their cell phones, talk to one another, or simply sit and yell. No real discipline is used, and no quality time is ever spent.

5. I once saw a ball go over the fence and into the street, and I watched as a staff member let a child out of the fence, go into the STREET, and get the ball all by themselves.

6. Another point about the owner that I wanted to mention, was that she decided one day without any previous warning that our son was kicked out. What did he do? He was having trouble listening, and she knew that she was getting in more kids since school was starting and didn't want to spend the time to properly discipline him. This put us in a very tough situation, since one day we had somewhere to take our son, and the next we had nothing. We both work full-time and attendance is huge at our jobs. It made for a desperate situation.

7. The day that she kicked our son out was the 1st of the new month. Since it was the first, she still demanded that we pay for the whole month, because he was there "for a part of the month." I'm positive that this was done on purpose and timed just right so that she could kick him out and still collect our money. Unfortunately, with our DSHS terms, we did still have to pay the money.

Please, as a parent who cares deeply for my children I beg you to never take your child here, no matter how desperate your situation may be. This place should be shut-down completely. I cannot believe the things that I see take place here, and will warn as many people as I possibly can. I wish you luck. If you already have your child here, and are convinced that it's a great place: think again, and trust me. I drive by this "daycare" more than twice a day. We were fooled for months, and you are most likely being fooled too.
