I have worked in the childcare field for 14 years and been a parent for 30. I have experienced several centers as a parent and a teacher/caregiver to children. That many years has allowed me to see the numerous pros and cons involved in how a center is operated. When I moved to the Jeff Co area 3 years ago I knew exactly what I was looking for not only for employment but also where my grandson,my pride and joy, could attend when my daughter was ready to send him. I could write comment after comment on any negative reviews given but I feel no need to. Its human nature to respond negatively when someone doesn't get the answer they want or need to blame others. The parents of the infants I care for are very satisfied with the care and can be assured that I would not work for a place that does not provide the greatest possible care for their children. My grandson did eventually attend to prepare him for the social and learning elements associated with kindergarten which he really needed help with.Our family was very satisfied with the staffs involvement in his development. They prepared him to be successful in his first year of school.To any potential clients I highly encourage you to visit our center and I look forward to providing your child with the loving, nurturing, developmental experience they deserve. To all my current families I enjoy every day providing for your precious babies, being a part of their lives, and it is a privilege to be a part of every new development they make.

As a foster parent of many years we have been involved with many different child care facilities. Fenton Play and Learn is far away the best we have dealt with. Our Grandchildren attended almost 3 years. The workers were caring and the administrators were very knowledgeable and helpful. The facilities were very well designed and decorated. One of oour grandchildren is a verrrry strong willed child. Their help, advice and cooperation made a difficult situation much better. Thank you Fenton Play and Learn.

I was a teacher there for a very short period of time and In that time (less then 1 week) I watched them scream at the children,take away their food (for no reason) and never sanitized any of the toys...My child and I walked out of there with strep/and staph infections and I have doctors notes and proof..I had 101.5 fever for 3 days..Kids are sick Green boogers coming out of their nose,coughing,sneezing They dont send them home..and there is not proper handwashing (they yell if you use to much water) .Its disgusting..I quit after my complaints were pushed aside and ignored .I also hotlined them for sanititation issues

After reading Jills comment which is a staff I would never take my 2 year old there. I have never even been to the place but was looking for child care centers and reading reviews will not even be checking this place out.

Let me tell you that this is a great daycare. I have a child that goes there and she always is asking me when she is going to school next. I can't complain because the staff is excellent and i am always getting art work back from my child. My child learned to write her name, recognize number 1-20, recognize the whole alphabet, shapes and colors. Thank you so much for taking great care of my child!

EXCELLENT DAYCARE, I have two children attending here and cannot believe what others have written about this daycare. These comments must be from a parent or teacher that has a vendeta with the office staff. The only issues I have ever seen were when people did not pay their tuition or they had kids that were a big problem and the parent really didn't seem to care.

Happy Parent

I have read alot of these reviews, and the people writting the bad reviews are wrong. I worked at Fenton Play andl earn 16 years ago. The staff was good people and the director was very nice. I recently started working there again and I love it. The staff is great. They are great with the kids and very caring. The children get good meals everyday. They take the time to teach the children right from wrong. Working with them to get them ready for pre kindergarden. Fenton Play and Learn is a very warm and caring daycare. I would deffinetly recommend parents to bring there children there. Im very happy to be one of the staff members there.

It has been ten years since our family started attending this daycare. I have nothing but praise for this daycare. Our last child is graduating today. My two older children are doing great in elementary school. In fact when they started school their teachers asked me what preschool they had attended. Both teachers were very impressed on how well behaved the boys were. They also commented on how they were prepared for kindergarten. They were amazed at the sign language they knew. Both boys are doing so good in school. They really like school. I really believe it is because of the excellent start they received at Fenton Play and Learn. My hats go off to the office people and staff of this daycare.If you are looking for a good daycare and a good experience, this is the one

Well I have had around 6 of my kids in this day care,
I really love this place, I have 2 school aged and 1 baby
with disabilities lots of them,I went in for 2 weeks and trained the staff, all office and nursery staff they all were willing to listen and learn from me what the needs were and are for her while she is in there care.
I have looked at everyone's comments and could not believe
what I was reading, I feel some of these comment's are from previous employees who no longer there because of there actions at the day care, as far as the rest I think that parents don't want to know when there child is miss behaving because they might have to be the parent and
correct there child.

The office is RUDE!!! They were RUDE to my kids and even had the nerve to question my kids when I chose to move day-cares. I caught the director talking about me and other parents to other people and when i confronted her she said she could do what ever she wanted. The food they feed the kids is UNBELIEVABLE....butter bread and fruit for breakfast....no adult would eat that them selves....Grilled cheese is two pieces of toast with a piece of cheese in the center. While we were there one of the teachers bounced a little girl on her cot while she was asleep to wake her up and her tooth went through her lip...another one felt it necessary to tell my 4 year old Son at the time that he was a pimp....I have had my kids at another daycare for almost two years now and still will not for give this place EVER. Think twice before bringing your kids here.

After reading the review by Jill R., it's pretty obvious why this daycare has such terrible reviews. I have half the mind to quit my job and open my own center. It's absurd that centers like this are in business.

The "office" staff is; rude, nasty, uneducated, prejudice, and overall uncaring. I started my child at this center and she was sick immediately with bacteria infections, fevers, ear infections and a terrible diaper rash. If your child is 2 minutes late they are not allowed to eat. They state that they are structured and yes they are like a prison system. there is no morning snack, and they are never allowed to get a drink between meals even though there are water fountains in every room.

I have to agree with the others about the office staff being rude. They are!!! I used to work there about 12 yrs ago in the 2 yr old room. we would have to pretty much beg for art supplies like construction paper new crayons etc. and they would only send just the exact amount needed for each child never any extra in case of a mess up. Also we were never allowed to leave the premises for lunch. The kids always had crackers for snack hardly ever cookies they had snack crackers, animal crackers, saltine crackers, gram crackers in honey and cinnamon it was ridiculous and the teachers had to do all the dishes after lunch that should of been the lunch persons job but no they made us do it while they went and chit chatted in the office. I will say the place was clean as a whistle and looked great but the way they treated their employees was awful and we were only paid 5.15 and hour and raises only came when the cost of living rates went up.

I don't know what people are complaining about. Being a recent employee gives me the chance to really explain why the majority of the negative reviews are wrong.
You think that the owner doesn't care about the children? Think again, for the past few months she and staff have been re-designing a HUGE room into a playroom for the children. All the toys in the room are brand new. They toys in the rooms are a little old, I admit. But what is the point of buy new toys for every single room if they are just going to be destroyed?
The owners office has the high tech computer system for the recently installed security cameras throughout the ENTIRE building. Those computers are used solely for the school itself. The owner has had the pet birds for about 20 years. The comment about kids not being able to go see the birds is a lie. There have been many times when I have been speaking with the owner and had parents bring their kids in to view the birds.
The kids should be potty trained by the time she reaches the toddler room. Just because their is a toilet does not mean that we are going to hold their hands all the way until they are 5 years old. Dealing with toddlers, teachers don't have time to worry about if one of the students can go to the bathroom on their own or not.
The security cameras in the school see just about everything that goes on. And the teachers know who is allowed to pick up the children as well.
There are only so many places where the children can be segregated. Someone has to be watching the children at all times, and it is difficult to separate a large group of sick kids with a short staff. And is it that bad that we try to look out for the kids health by informing the parents if they do show signs of sickness? It seems to me the majority of them don't.
As for the so called 'rudeness' of the staff, I don't see how people think they are rude. Working there, I have seen how rude some of the parents can get for no reason. The owner and her daughter are not rude to the children, they are trying to in-force the rules. The problem won't be fixed with the child if you just sympathize with them. We are trying to teach them discipline and how to behave. It is the same for the staff as well. Sometimes we slack off like everybody does in their job, but we are enforced by the owner. I don't have a problem with paying for coloring supplies. I have seen other teachers let the kids ruin the supplies that they use to give us. But we lost that privilege to have supplies, free of charge. Why should the owner fork over money because people can't do their jobs?
I have found informing some of the parents about their child has no effect at all. The parents do nothing and expect us to raise their children. I'm not saying this of all parents, but their are a few of them out there. It is not our job to put up with kids if they won't behave or are cranky.
My own child is attending this school. She loves it. While it is not perfect, I recommend it. I think some people should take a look at the school again, and then maybe at how they are raising their own.

This is the only daycare in the area that doesnt open til 6:30. I have to wait til then and risk being late for work. Being right on hwy 30 doesnt help this.They have a security system but anybody could walk in and pick up a kid out of this place.. I would not trust this place with my dog. Way Overpriced! Had to pick up a friends child there once because they were sick. Got there and they had 2 sick kids in the office, segregated from the others, fine. But what about putting my friends son who was sick at his stomach segregated in the same small office as the other kid who had pink eye? Trying to get them both as sick as possible mixing disease because that less kids they have to watch the next day sinec the tuition is already paid.

The hours are not that great like someone else wrote, if you have to be at work at 7 like myself you are pretty much SOL. They do not open until 6:30 which is not real convenient. Most daycares open at 5:30/6 to accommodate the early shift.

The owner of this facility is RUDE. I have to back up all other comments about the office staff. THEY ARE HORRIBLE. The owner and her daughter sure could take a business class on how to treat customers. Heck if it was not for the kids and their parents money - you would not be in business. They are paying your salary you could be a little caring. The owners daughter has NO manners, she is rude to the staff and kids right in front of you. They apparently do not even know how to smile. These two should not be in this type of business, they do not have the heart and soul for this type of profession. The should be wards for a prision.

The TEACHERS ARE GREAT!!! I absolutely loved my childs teachers. It is sad they have to ask parents to help with supplies to educate the students when your tuition should be covering that. Oh no, the owner rather have it for herself. Looks are very deceiving with this facility. I really feel for these poor teachers, it is more of a prision for them then an enjoyable place to work. My child loves the teachers but I just can't stand the office stafff along with the HIGH price tuition. The poor teachers are underpaid at this facility and then have to use their own money to by paint, paper and other supplies in order to teach the kids (but you look at the office staff and man the owners office has nice desk, computer...etc - nothing to do with the kids). All daycares now prepare kids for Kindergarten, this one does nothing more elabroate than the others.

The other thing, what they feed the kids is sometimes horrible. We are talking children, that should be taken into consideration when preparing the menu. I wonder how many kids actually eat their entire meal without having to be brided by the teachers. One day when I was dropping off my child they were preparing toast with applesauce??? I would rather have my child have a healthy bowl of cereal (i.e. corn flakes, cheerios). I just don't think of toast and applesauce for breakfast.

One thing that bugged me, the owner has birds in her office where the kids are not allowed to even go? Why have them when they can not even enjoy them. Bet the tuition pays to feed those birds?? Again - can not say one bad thing about the teachers but the owner and her daughter need to go!!!

The teachers should start up a facility of their own, I would go there in a heart beat!!! I feel for you ladies, you are all great people to unfortunately have to deal with such treatment from that facility. Heck, to get an hour lunch and are not allowed to even leave the facility - come on, its your time. This is why I say Dee and her daughter would be better in a prision.

My grand daughter is 17 months old , since attending this facitlity
she had caught the hand ,foot and mouth disease .when you ask the worker how oftern do you sanitaizr there pacifiers and cups and they just stare blankly at you ,you figure out the answer is never.
Then the comment about them calling if your child sneezes is absolutlely correct, if they are teething you better beleive they are not dealing with a cranky baby, they will call you and tell you your child is sick you must come get her and when you get there they are outside playing....whats wrong with this picture.
now she has headlice, yep you heard me head lice, has the daycare even notified the parents ,nope. and since it was adult lice and no eggs guess where is came from ...thats right a child from the daycare. Just becasue a place looks clean does not mean it is.
look up hand ,foot and mouth diesase alot of times is mistaken for Strep throat but it is caused from fecal matter. if a daycare worker changed a diaper and didnt wash her hands ,then picks up your childs pacifier there you have how it is passed. The staff is rude, and does not care about your child.

This Day Care looks good, but beware! The office staff are uninterested in your child being there. They will call you to pick your child up if they sneeze. They are only interested in your check. The Day Care workers even mention this. Find a different place!

I don't know what the previous comments were for, other than parents don't want to raise their kids properly. When a kids does not behave they address the issue with the parent. I guess some parents don't want to take responsibility for their kids. I have only experienced great things at this center. I have 2 boys, one in the 5 year old room and the other in the 2 year old room. My 5 year old can be obnoxious at times, I do admit. The teachers and office let me know how his day is so that I can do my part in being a parent. This is the cleanest daycare I have ever seen. The rooms are extremely clean and there are plenty of toys, along with a special room with trains and blocks. The office staff has always been polite and responsive when I have had questions. I have gotten to know them and they are very warm and caring ladies. When my 2 year old wasn't feeling well and was tugging on his ear and they thought he might have an ear infection, they called me to let me know in case I wanted to call the doctor. I thought that was very nice of them to do considering he wasn't running a fever. Go take a tour and ask questions!

I am handicapped. I was there to pick up a child in the FCS program. I politely asked the owner if someone could bring the child to me because I have great difficulty climbing stairs. She was very rude to me because I couldn't get the child.
Outside they have a ramp for the handicapped, but inside they have nothing to help a handicapped person. I've been told by one of the workers that there are two elderly ladies that pick up children and the workers bring the children to them. I certainly would not recommend this day care because they have nothing for the handicapped person!!!!

I have my child here at Fenton Play and Learn. This is a very clean daycare and the staff are warm and affectionate. My child is learning how to sign, interact with other children, and potty train. The office staff does not appear as friendly or caring. At times, when I drop my child off, the front office staff already look annoyed. Hopefully they will read this and work on being more friendly and out going as it really is one of the best daycares around.

I had the worst experience with the office staff at this place. Children imitate adults and I have no desire to have my kids becoming the rude and inconsiderate people that represent this business.

The facility is nice, the teachers are great.
The ladies in the office are rude and nasty. They see you as a check only and dont care who you are or what goes on with your kids.

This day care is the most pitiful daycare I have ever seen allowed to run. The staff are inconsiderate. The owners could care less about the children and are extremely rude.
