My daughter, 2 and my son, 3 months, both are enrolled in day care here at Great River Child Care. I feel very comfortable with them being with the staff and feel that they pay a lot of attention to my babies and know that my daughter enjoys herself here.

I wanted to comment on the previous review. I realize the review was written almost 4 years ago however I still wanted to make a comment to let people know about child care. In the state of Iowa there are ratios that child care centers need to abide by. In the previous review the insider said that the ratio was 10 children to 1 adult. Well here are the regulations for child care in Iowa:

0-24 mo = 1 adult / 4 children
2 yrs old = 1 adult / 6 children
3 yrs old = 1 adult / 8 children
4 yrs old = 1 adult / 12 children
5 and up = 1 adult / 15 children

I put these ratios on here so others will see that it is acceptable to have 10 children to 1 adult for the children 4 yrs old and up.

Also on the legal side of the review would be the irresponsibility of the staff member that supposedly quit because of the mistreatment of the children. If that staff member knew that the other staff was doing something incorrectly then s(he) should have stayed there to educate the others on how to deal with the children. Also all child care staff are mandatory reporters, if that staff member knew the children were being mistreated then s(he) should have reported it immediately. I have been in the center and there are many children and many staff still there so they must be doing something right.

My hope for future insiders is that they would review the state laws regarding child care before writing their own PUBLIC review.

This childcare service would not be recommended on my part. I have been in this center before at unannounced times and have seen children running unsupervised and situations where one person was trying to care for 10 or more children at a time. A friend of mine used to work here and could not handle the way the children were not taken care of so quit.

PROS:
CONS: Too many children left to one person to care for
