My son absolutely loves it here. Every morning he smiles and wants to go to school. He opens the doors and runs inside. He can never get himself in fast enough. The staff is very personal friendly and caring. They appear to be busy

Pros: great location and affordable

Cons: not a positive environment for kids

I was always a little skeptical of this place, but when I got in a pinch and needed a babysitter one Saturday night for a work event I had to attend I thought I would give it a try. After all, my child was 6 ? and he could tell me if something was went wrong. So I dropped him off on Saturday night at 5pm and picked him up at 9pm. When we got home that evening I noticed that he had paint splatters all over the back of his shirt. He did not have 1 drop on the front of his shirt. I washed the shirt the next day only to learn that it was not washable paint. When I asked how he got paint on his back, he told me that the other kids were flicking their brushes at him and the teachers would not stop it. Obviously he is not making this up as I have never known a child who could actually paint the BACK of their shirt. When I asked if he got to play the Wii, he told me that he was not allowed to play it a whole lot because the teachers were mopping the floor and they had to wait for it to dry and then they had to stay off of it to keep it clean. What??? I am sending my child for you to entertain, not to perform your cleaning tasks that you are supposed to do AFTER all of the kids go home. Further, to tell my child he can?t play a game because you have to keep the floor clean is ridiculous. Although nothing was THAT bad, it was all annoying and unprofessional. When I tried to reach a Manager (Kathy) or Owner (Robin) that is when the real problems began. They dodged every phone call. They are VERY SHADY and unethical. I would never leave my child there again and I think if you are looking for a place for your child, skip this place. Especially if your child is not old enough to REALLY tell you what is going on.

If I could give it less than 1 star I would. Unfortunately 1 star is the minimum.

Cons: Care More About Your Money Than Your Child

We had a situation where we required immediate care until we located a day care for a fulltime basis. I took my son here for 4 consecutive days. The care givers were never aware of if my child ate or not or any details of his stay on that day. The facility does not seem well cared for and appears dirty. Most of the staff were not involved with the children and just stood there while some of them cried. I did observe one of the staff conducting an organized coloring time which was nice in comparison to the kids just running around. I had planned to use this facility for 2 more weeks however the last time I went to pick up my child I could hear him crying from the front desk. No one paid any attention to him for a good 5 minutes. In addition, they were unaware if he had ate dinner or not. Lastly I there were about 10 insect bites on him. I realize these could have come from outside or in side the location but with all of my other concerns it was enough to stop taking him there. I do think the concept of stay n play is great but which they were selling a better service. I hope they make an investment in improving the care, the facility and getting high marks on state visits.

Pros: Convenient for last minute

Cons: Not maintained, disinterested staff, no record of stay

My child had a great time at the roswell location and it was his first time ever in a child care facility. When I came ti pick him up he did not want to leave. We will be back again. I recommend this facility to any and all parents

I used this service for drop off only. My husband and I visited the site before we considered placing our 12 month old in their care. We wanted to use them for nights or weekends out by ourselves. I gave them a try by using them for an outing during the day. When I arrived, I heard my daughter crying from the front door. I provided her with a snack along with some juice. Once I returned, she finished her snack I provided, however they refilled her bottle with red Hi-C juice and gave her Vanilla Wafer crackers.

Also, the setup is just not conducive for children. Although there are bright colors, it always looks dark and filthy. At my daughters last daycare, the children looked happy and well care for. The children here looked spent and uninvolved with any activities. There were infants in the same room with bigger toddlers. There were runny noses and no one was attending to this.

Opt to find a babysitter you trust, a family friend, etc to watch your child for several hours. Also, they charge the same price for the daycare I previously sent my daughter to which was top notch. What are they thinking? This is a grungy place. Don't even think of considering this place for permanent daycare. Look into Primrose, The Goddard School, Suzuki (if you can afford them), Sunshine House, etc. Do you see a pattern? Quality.

This goes for the Kids Stay N Play at Lawrenceville too. Even more horrible. I haven't been to the other location, but I assume they're all run the same.

Pros: Drop off service

Cons: ratio & no clear separation of age groups

The service clearly is unreliable. I tried calling several times on a Sunday to the Gwinett location from about 11:30 - 1:00 and no one ever answered the phone.

I do not recommend this daycare to anyone. Only good thing what they have is the price. They have bad communication with the parents. If you ask what is your child doing today they cannot answer you. They have overload rooms, and ratio problems. One times a saw room without teacher, only the kids where in the room.
If you do not want any bad experience don?t go there.
