My 3 kids have gone to TCC for over 10 years!! They had wonderful preschool experience and were ready for kindergarten. Now they ride the bus to & from school and can't wait to play with friends there after school.

I miss the Mother's

im not sure about the other child care centers but i live next to the one on vista dr and i constantly see kids fist fighting! hitting eachother hard and ganging up on eachother. I have gone over and told the kids to stop it many times and they have tried to intimidate me. I never see any teachers outside watching them or anything. i went inside and i told them what was happening and they seemed unalrmed. one child was actually bleeding and still nothing. i live right next to the center and i would have loved send my child to somewhere so close but i will never out my child in a situation like this.

My 2 children have attended Traditions for the past 6 years & I have no complaints. Childcare is avery demanding emotionally and physically. Teachers at a child care center wear many hats! Walk a day, a week in their shoes and tell me how easy you think it is!?! I have an elementary education degree, I know what my kids need to develop as a person and academically! Traditions definately has what it takes. I HAVE dropped in on several occasions over the past 6 years and have NEVER found any reason to pull my children! I would refer Traditions to family, friends & co-workers!! My hat off to the teachers at Traditions :)

Pros: Great envrionment, loving staff!

.

I have three children and all of them have been at Traditions. And, our time there was wonderful! The staff treated my children as one of their own! Always welcoming them with smiles and hugs! Traditions also prepared them for kindergarten academically and socially.

The things that my children learned at their preschool program prepared them for a great start into their learning years. It amazed me what they were learning! They have also been a lifesaver in transporting my kids to and from school!!

I have referred friends to Traditions and they too have been pleased with what their children are expereincing at Traditions. Thank you Traditions for many memories and so much more!

Pros: Loved the staff and preschool program

.

My kids have always had a great time here and their teachers are incredible with them. I get to hear all of their stories when they come home about what they learned and who they played with and they can't wait to leave for Traditions in the morning.

Shuttling my kids to and from school has also helped me out a ton.

Thanks Traditions!

Pros: Great Teachers and atmosphere

Cons: Nothing unusual

My children have attended Traditions for 3 years and we are very pleased. They come home from pre-school each day singing new songs and telling us about all the fun things they do throughout the day. We couldn't be happier with it.

We took our children here for 3 years. In retrospect we should have moved them about a year ago. Things escalated a few weeks ago with our 4 year old reporting that his teacher thumped him on his head and called him stupid.

We immediately informed the director and reported the incident to DHS. The response we received from the day care center was horrible. They closed ranks, did nothing to protect our child or other children from this teacher. The state licensing agency performed an investigation and substantiated our son??s claim.

The director and owner kept the teacher and terminated our contract. This day care center is beyond deplorable. We have observed that they hire young girls with limited education, keep unprofessional teachers on staff and that the child to teacher ratio is not followed.

Do research. Stop in unannounced. Observe from your car when the children are outside at play. Call the state and ask questions. And most of all follow your instincts. Our experience has been that children are not safe here.

The director and owner should.

Pros: None

Cons: Center abuses children

I have been sending my kid here since she was 3 months old. I should say that there are some good people there who genuniely care and the others are all fake. In the past week, my kid who is a year old now fell down twice and knocked her face on a table which was left right in the middle of the room. She had marks on her face which prompted them to give me an incident reporting sheet,
Now I hear the 2 women who the baby was close to are also leaving the day care beacuse of the management. One of them has been there close to 7 yrs. She told me that things are not definitely not as they seem when you go in to drop ur kid in the morning. Half the time the people in the infant room are somewhere else chatting away leaving the kids by themselves.
The director of this place whose name is Jackie is another fake. All she cares about is money. This is my kid's last day at this location and when I told her that I was pulling her out she never cared to ask me even why or if I am going to be sending her elsewhere. I should say she is such a bit#&h, Thats what the other ladies working there told me about her too.

So please think twice before sending ur kid here!!!
