Basically I was an employee there for quite a while and was treated horribly. I only stayed because they worked with my school scheduel, but got out once I was able to do so. Corporate and local management are so rude and disrespectful to their employees, and even to parents behind their backs. More than once food was brought to classrooms with mold on it. And once my boss even told me to serve the ones without mold even though they were all put in the same container. Which is completely discusting. I understand children need to be involved with other children, which this day care provides. The teachers are also great people, but most of the time cannot handle certain situations correctly. Not because they do not want to, but because they are not capable because management will not provide the ways to do so. Overall I would seek childcare elsewhere or even a private provider. This place is just to sketchy.

If I had the ability to give this establishment a negative rating I would do so for their inability to provide the minimum requirements of childcare. My son was at Kids Country in Maple Valley for 2 months and in that two months there were three incidents.

Incident #1 My child came home with fingernail marks on his butt.

Incident #2 My son experienced the absolute worst diaper rash covering his entire lower extremeties. It was almost impossible to change him due to his blood curling screams from the pain. (Just to give you some insight, he never experienced diaper rash at all in his first 1 1/2 years of life while he was under my care...(I was a stay at home father during this time period).

Incident #3 I showed up to pick my son up from the daycare and the staff noticed my son was limping and she thought he needed a diaper change. I was in a hurry to get to a meeting and almost changed him in the car myself, but I figured why not. When she took off his diaper his leg had an acid burn so bad on his leg from sitting in a soiled diaper so long that the afternoon staff member was in utter shock and asked me to bring in the manager. I complied and then left with my son immediately as I did not want to make a scene in front of the otherr children.

The following day I spoke with the Director and explained that we were disenrolling our son due to their inability to provide what I consider one of the staples of basic childcare.

After a long discussion the director assured me that my son would be well taken care of the remaining two days he had left in their care.

The last day which was today I went in to pick him up. The way that the toddler classrooms are laid out, there usually is an empty room in the evening and it shares a door to the bathroom of the room that they are using. I went into the vacant room to collect my son's belongings and I heard one of the female staff members call for my son as it was his time to use the restroom. I decided to listen to how they spoke to the children when a parent was not in the room. My son started to say da da and the staff member on the other side of the door told him to "shut up" and that he was just fine. I couldn't take anymore and I walked around the hallway to the classroom and barged in on them. The staff member was caught off guard and looked at me and said "Oh hi.....your son had a great day today with the other kids!" I just picked up my son, looked her in the eye and told her I was on the other side of the door and I heard the entire conversation. Had there not been 10 kids under the age of two in the room, I would have given this staff member a piece of my mind.

There is a complete lack of oversight at this facility on the part of the director and the management. Policies and procedures are not followed and there are times when the children outnumber the required number of staff to be present by law. A dog and pony show is presented to the parents upon arrival, but I truly would like to be an ant on the floor during the day.

I do not usually write reviews unless I am passionate about a topic or feel that it is in the best interest of other people.

I would never wish to subject another person's child to the type of operation that occurs at this location.

Pros: Some of the staff

Cons: The rest of the staff

.

I've worked it and found it to be one of the worst jobs I've ever had. Corporate expects the teachers and children to do to many activities and I feel it is over load for the students.

They kids are not given enough outdoor time nor are they given enough time to spend doing free play.

Even though there are cameras and voice capabilties from te rooms to the office. Teachers that are well known by the staff to not be the best choice for working in child care are allowed to stay.

The infant room is great but all other rooms are not run in a manner that is best for the children. There is no abuse but the teachers there are just working a job and do not take it seriously enough. children deserve instruction and care from people who choose this line of work as a career.

PROS: cameras in classrooms
CONS: teachers don't care enough about their jobs.
