My son went to E.B.A. for the year we spent in Texas, and I did some volunteer work there as well. I think Ms. Alyce and her staff are caring and conscientous people who really look out for each child. I never heard a raised adult voice unless there was an immediate safety or behavior concern. Certainly I saw kids misbehaving, which was dealt with calmly and discreetly as possible. And parents were kept informed about the good and bad. I really appreciated the young men who worked there-children need caring men as role models. My son loved the ability to choose his activities, varied snacks, and the kids and staff.

My son has been attending EBA for 6 years and he loves it. He has not been going this summer since I work from home now...and he has asked on several if he could back to EBA. The staff turn over ratio is extremely low and I have never not once heard an unkind word come out of an employee's mouth. My son thrived at EBA and I feel certain that a good part of his politeness and manners comes from the education that he received at EBA.

I never felt that my son was in danger or jeopardy while attending EBA. Ms Alyce and her staff truly care about the kids that go there...I would not send my son anywhere else.

My son has been going to EBA for 5 years now. He absolutely LOVES IT. He looks forward to know he has a CHOICE in what he wants to do after school. The team there look out for the best interest of each child and work with the parents when there are issues whether at home or in the center. I transfered from another center where I had NO say. The other center didn't believe in any kind of punishment so if my child was grounded they didn't care. Alyce respects her parents and their choice of parenting so when my child is in trouble i let her know and she makes sure any thing i want enforced is enforced.
Homework room ROCKS. Ms Alyce is by far one of the most intelligent people I know. It is a great relief to pick up my child knowing that their homework is done so when you get home with your child you can spend the quality time with them not time working on their homework.
I would recommend EBA to EVERYONE! Everyone that is that loves their child and respects their childs option to make their own choices as tha

My niece goes to Before & After. I have found everyone to be nice. Even though I don't pick up often they always know who I am. I feel good that I see the same people there every time. At my other niece"s daycare I never know anyone. My niece says she loves it there. My sister says her grades went up, don't know if it is because of the center, but they did.

Excellent place for older children. Although my daughter, Jenni, doesn't attend any more she still asks to go back. There were plenty of activities to keep her busy and her homework would be done so it was one less thing for me to worry about when I got home in the evenings.

It is an overwhelming place for toddlers with all the big kids and activities going on.

Ms. Alyce is a Godsend and I don't know what we would've done without all of her and her employees' help! (She may be strongly opinionated but that's just one of her loveable quirks! ;))

I do not recommend this day-care center. I did not find the owner to be easy to deal with, kind or knowledgeable. In my opinion, she treats the children like cattle. Her center has been cited numerous times for violations.

I have a horrible experience with the owner, Alyce Bolowskie. After that, I began researching the facility with the state. I found on the Texas Department of Family & Protective Services that this child care facility has been written up MULTIPLE times for dangerous infractions. Most noteably:

746.2805 - Prohibited Punishments - No Harsh, Cruel or Unusual
746.305(a)(1) - Report Unsafe Facility Occurrence
746.1201(1) - Responsibilities of Employees and Caregivers -Demonstrate Competency, Good Judgment, Self-control

Please feel free to confirm these voilations at: www.dfps.state.tx.us

I was shocked at these voilations for a CHILD CARE facility! I would encourage anyone to do their homework before allowing any facility to care for their precious children.

I would NOT recommend the daycare center based on my dealings with the owner/director Alyce. There are plenty of choices for daycare providers in Allen. I would encourage anyone who to look at all the options.

I would definitely NOT recommend Before and After for childcare. I had negative experiences with the owners and the employees, and my children have reported more than once that the employees shout at the kids there, "for no reason". I'm sure there's a reason, but in my opinion there is never a *good* reason to yell at a child. My children were also extremely intimidated by several of the employees.
Also, take a look at the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services website. One of the most recent inspections of Before and After reported two violations:
- Responsibilities of Employees and Caregivers - Demonstrate Competency, Good Judgment, Self-control
- Prohibited Punishments - No Harsh, Cruel or Unusual

Please just consider this review, and find another place for your children!

They were always friendly when we went there, and I felt like when we left we said our warm goodbyes. However, 8 months after withdrawing our children and in a new calendar year, they called and said we still owe several hundred dolalrs for failure to give 2 weeks notice. (I had given notice and had paid all we owed. They do not ever give invoices; it is all kept with the owner, and you have to ask her what you owe).

She said people like us can afford to pay, and if we don't, she will turn us in to a collection agency to ruin our credit.

Pros: Stay open later than others

Cons: Too many kids, unsafe conditions, scam you when you leave

My son has gone here since kindergarten, he is now in 6th grade. Every day he has looked forward to going to Before and after day care, the staff helps him with his homework and has fun activities including video games, indoor playground, crafts, and martial arts, ect...

This facility is wonderful for kids who are older. My son loves going here during the school year and I think he's looking forward to this summer as well!

They do a lot of things with/for the kids. Lots of fun!
