We are in agreement with the first reviewer. We witnessed the events that took place with their son and then experienced the same drama when we placed our newborn in this daycare. This provider is good with older kids, but is not a baby-friendly daycare. If you are a breastfeeding mother or pumping at work you should definitely stay away. My breast milk was continuously dumped day after day because my child "would not take it". I was told time and time again that my milk "was no good". The true problem was that the daycare provider was attempting to feed my child like a formula fed baby...they eat very differently. The turn over of children in this daycare is extremely high due to the strict rules, continuous requests to take your child to the doctor and constant phone calls at work. With so many EXCELLENT daycares in the area, don't settle on this one!

Our experience was not pleasant at all with this childcare. The provider becomes very aggravated if our child became a little fussy. She would call us at work and request that we come pick him up because he had been crying all morning. When we would arrive, he was smiling and happy and no problems. On the last time, my husband walked in to find my son isolated in the front room of the daycare crying in a pack and play while the provider was in the other room ignoring him while all the other children were all asleep. She was very rude and very uncaring toward our child. The provider seems to become overwhelmed very easily with infants who are not on the exact schedule everyday and have an occasional fussy day. I would not recommend this daycare to any parent of a child under the age of 1 and especially those infants who are being breastfed and switching to bottle feeding.
