my first impression of the facility was good. teachers seemed nice, director was pleasing, and the children there seemed to enjoy themselves. But the only thing I have to say bad about it is that they charge over the market fees and don't provide anything for the children like other facilities do and the other facilities don't charge over market fees. I have to pay them more, buy my own wipes, diapers, and pull-ups just for them to watch my children. Then they change children rather they are wet/dry/or just pulled the diaper/pull up off. I am not rich by no means and my children don't go through that many diapers and pull-ups at home so what is going on. I am just saying, there is a reason people have vouchers. They obviously don't have alot of money to spend but need daycare. Why are we paying you the parent fee, the company suppling the vouchers are paying you, and you want 40-50 dollars more from parents. What is that money going to cause it aint going to supplies needed for the children.....I am just irritated by that but my kids seem to love it there so I can't complain too much. I also don't like the fact that there are rules on what shoes they can wear and what kind of barretts and beads they can have in the little girls hair. WTF..Never heard of that but I have now I guess.

I wouldn't even put my dog there much less my child. The place was dirty and kids had snot dripping out of their noses. The room smelled like poop, there were a few dirty diapers and the teacher was working on the bulletin board.

It was after the "academic" day when we went there, but that was no excuse for what was going on. The woman who was supposed to be "Assistant Teacher" to the preschool room was sweeping the floor while the kids ran all over the place -- and continually interrupted the lady giving us the "tour". (It's against state regulations to clean *and* supervise small children, by the way.) She didn't even look up or acknowledge us as we walked past. The person "supervising" the school age children was hollering at them while writing something on posterboard. It was dark and dank, and the "Director" had to come from behind her desk and open the door to tell the kids to settle down because Ms. Assistant Sweeper was oblivious. I couldn't hear what the "tour guide" was saying b/c all the children were making so much racket. She even said this herself, "I can't hear you in here -- let's go outside" so she could hear and answer my questions. And the "Director" was somewhat cold and oblivious on the phone. Wouldn't take my child here. They were only $150-something per week and you get the first week free, but I see why!

PROS: You're kidding, right?
CONS: Oblivious "Teachers"; Unruly Kids; Not-So-Friendly Staff

Good facility. They are more of a daycare than a preschool in my opinion. Most of the day is spent in time consuming activities for the children. Some activities are educational and others are just to pass the day. They have naptime, snacktime, lunchtime. Most of the teachers are very good and try very hard to "teach" but it can be difficult with the number of children in each room. It is also challenging to enter and exit the parking lot due to high traffic at that time of day.
