This is a truly "OWNER OPERATED BUSINESS", where the owner personallymanages the business on a day to day basis. Country Grove's prices are competitive, and owner Diana will beat prices from comparable facilities..

The Center is located in a country setting, which is very safe for your child. They have an awesome playground

I would recommend this center. The staff is very competant, and caring. The programs are thorough, and well thought out. The summer camp offerings are a blast.

My experience year after year continues to be outstanding. The staff is great; the facility is very nice; the understanding and flexibility in troubled times is world class

Country Grove Children's Center clearly undertands the economic impacts on families in the current economic environment, and will to work with families, to meet their needs. I know that NO other Centers are so caring - primarily because this business is family owned and operated. The facility is nice, staff very caring, and the country setting provides a safe / fun environment.

I am totally at ease, when leave my children. My biggest problem is that my children do NOTwant to leave when I arrive at thwe end of each day. This is a GREAT place.

My family moved into the area. Coming from another state, I had to temporarily place my 2 childen, while I focussed on final construction of our new home. I could not be any more
satisfied, with the care o my childen for this period of time. My children often cried when it was time to go home. Neither wanted to leave this environment, during this transition period. I found the "total staff" to be very accomodating, competant, and kind. I would recommend this facility highly.

Sadly, my children are beyond day care years, and have moved on from Country Grove, but it does not stop me taking a moment to THANK DIANA. The experience has been a pleasure. I believe that I have referred numerous new clients to this facility. I believe "to the person", they are completely satisfied. The best thing about this establishment, is that they listen to all recommendations for improvement, and act upon each, or explain their course of action. This made me feel that I had some control over the future.

I had the opportunity to visit Country Grove Children's Center on a tour. The center is completely remodelled. Diana continues to run the operation day by day. There is no one more compassionate than DIana, and she serves as a good model for her teachers. I have signed up, and look forward to beginning. My fears of "first time inclusion" of my child, in such a center has completely gone away. I am at peace now.

Wouldnt reccomend them in a heartbeat. I have tried both of my children there (years apart) to see if anything had changed. NOPE.

The place smells of mold, I have personally witnessed the staff YELLING at the childrend in the waddler and toddler room (I was behind the door and you can imagine the look of shock when I "reappeard"). The owners husband is a bully and stands at the door and will not let you go unless you make payment.

They have had numerous violations if you look them up. They dont warm up the kids food, they dont help them either.

And the really stupid (sorry) thing is that they have the babies(youngest infants) right near the front door. which is NOT closed but left open with a safety gate.

Can you imagine the winters, opening and shutting the front door for people and the babies getting that icy cold draft when there is snow on the ground.

They could easily make that small room an inside library for the kids on rainy days and move the infants down the hall.

But they dont. Also the to get to the play ground you have to walk outside and across the lawn and then go into an gated enclosed area. The women that they hire are out of shape and it would only take a second for someone to run up the a child, snatch them and be off with them. Most daycares you exist the daycare immediately into an enclosed are. Not here.

And when you get to the playground its not childproof woodchips or grass. its ROCKS and then they bikes and trikes on then....

Last I checked, you can ride a bike or trike thru rocks.

I am surprised that this place hasnt shut down. It will though

Country Grove Children's Center has a wonderful director and staff. As a parent, I love how flexible and accommodating everyone has been. I feel so comfortable leaving my child here. My daughter looks forward to going to Country Grove everyday. It's a very nurturing and caring environment. I feel that all the staff go out of their way to assist in any way possible. I have never had any issues regarding tuition payments, in fact I have received credit for any snow closing(which has only been one day). I have highly recommended Country Grove in the past and will continue to do so.

I have found the people here to be unaccomidating and mediocre at best. Everytime I have an issue they get defensive and don't want to hear what I have to say. One time they showed my 6 year old a PG 13 movie. I heard nothing but excuses. They finally admitted that maybe they shouldn't have done that just to shut me up. Another time they just decided to close on a snow day & called me at work saying that I had to come get her. Apparently they felt that since my daughter was the only one there, they didn't have to do what I was paying them to (take care of her). That meant lost hours at work for us. I will be taking my daughter out of there as soon as possible.
