I would not recommend this center for early childcare or education. The phrase "you get what you pay for" comes to mind. It may have the cheapest rates in the area, but theres a reason for that. The teachers seem unfocused and unattached to the children and classrooms. The lesson plans sent out seem to have good intentions, however the quality of work we see sent home does not correlate.The rooms always seem to be a mess and in chaos while teachers can usually be found sitting. There has also been concern with the amount of teachers leaving. We have seen many different faces over the past 6 months or so and noticed that there have been a few teachers that came and went within only a matter of weeks. The center itself is dirty and not well maintained. The Director seems nice enough but when issues or concerns are brought to her attention there is either a very slow response or not one at all. I also have found policies referring to payments and center behaviors to be confusing and even strange at times. I would recommend looking elsewhere.
I had been warned by other parents in the area of issues they had with the owner and quality of care their children were receiving. A few people had mentioned they removed their children and placed them in other centers due to ongoing issues with the Director, Teachers, and the cleanliness of the building, but I wanted to check it out anyways since it is one of the cheapest places around and there arent many other centers in the area that offer infant care. Anyway, I like to do my research, especially when it comes to the care and well being of my children, so before my meeting I did a bit of searching and found that there have been many safety complaints filed against this site as well as a complaint to the Better Business Bureau and Attorney General! I didnt even bother showing up for my tour.
My daughter attends here & absolutely loves coming to school. The teachers are so lovable and treat them like their very own. I would recommend this to anyone in this area, you wont be disappointed!! :)
