The first day I visited this classroom I noticed staples on the floor below a bulletin board in the 2 year old classroom and was concerned. 6 mos. later I decided we had no choice but to put our son in daycare and selected this school because of the small classroom size. Honestly, I had forgotten about the staples by then. On his first day I got him settled into his classroom and noticed an open staple on the floor, then several others. There were at least THIRTY open staples on the floor for the 2 year olds to pick up, step on, and put in their mouths. After I notified the teacher and director, they still did not clean them up by the time we returned to retrieve our son at noon. I asked for my $125 registration fee to be returned, and the director and owner REFUSED. They obviously do not care about their children and only want their money. Do not go here.

I went to this daycare for a tour while searching for a new daycare for my 18 month old and new born. When my husband and I arrived we where horrified by what we saw. First we just walked in, the door was open; then we see all the doors to teh rooms are open (it was about 4:30 pm) and kids where just running all over; we walked through all the rooms which looked old and drab, then when we where leaving we stopped in front of the infant room. This was the scariest part. There where a few staff memebers sitting on the floor talking and none of them noticed a little infant crawl right out the door and into the laundry room, we had to point out what was happening to the administrator giving the tour! Also the administrator was not dressed in a way that makes me want to feel my children would be safe with them. We could not run from there fast enough!

I took my daughter out of this facility shortly after placing her in it. One day she came home with a brown p**p stain on her underwear, because no one was paying attention to her while she was using the bathroom. One day I picked her up and she was in the bathroom with the door closed all by herself, and the teacher didn?t even know she was in there! While I was dropping my daughter off one morning a child in her class got reprimanded for accidently peeing in his pants. The teacher in my daughters classroom was lazy, and was changing a child while sitting on the chair one day. One day my daughter came home and said" When the movie was over we watched it again." This daycare uses TV to entertain the children. I noticed that my daughter stopped singing songs when she was home. At her old daycare, before this one, she would come home every day with a new song and learned her ABC's in a week, so I knew they weren't singing songs to the kids or anything. When I asked my daughter if they danced or sang songs there she said no. At the time my daughter was in the 3 year old classroom. The director of the daycare was nice to me on my first visit, when I was evaluating the school, but after I put my daughter in the school she was rude and acted like a different person. I always tell parents not to send their kids here if they are asking for a referral. It was a bad experience and the facility is horribly managed.

Pros: nice playground equipment

Cons: everything, teachers, assistant director, TV watching all the time instead of teaching
