As a "Christian" daycare goes, this was the most disappointing center I have ever encountered.

While the place IS glitzy looking, the center is managed poorly.  We were given the usual handbook, and a smiley walkthrough with professions that this would be the most wonderful experience for our children - That they would be welcomed and helped to acclimate.  In the six weeks since they've known about our attendance, our son has yet to get a name tracer (the wipe-off kind to practice with), and nothing was set up (cubby, name on hook, as the other kids had).  While we brought in a folder for his work as required, it has not been used.

In the handbook, it states that the children attend a preschool.  Be forewarned that there are no certified teachers here.  In the 4 weeks of attendance, he has had no take-homes of work that's been done during the day.  When asked about it, the first response the caregiver gave was that she was just too busy.  After the first two weeks, it was brought up again.  "We'll be on track for Monday."  Monday, and all of the following week - nothing.  And the next week, it was a different excuse.

The handbook states that the children will have computer time each week.  The computers are supposedly broken, but - a completely cosmetic remodel of the front office was done, rather than fix the computers for the children. 

The director and caregiver both indicated that a weekly newsletter goes home to parents so that they can participate and monitor what their children are doing.  In 4 weeks, only one of those came home, and the caregiver blithely told me that she decided not to use it that week.

While there was one caregiver in the facility who seemed cheerful, approachable, and kind, one person does not a facility make. 

In short, of the 10 goals that they themselves portray in the handbook, I'd say that they fail at 6, and simply don't do what they say they will do.  Essentially, they lied to us, which is sad coming from a place that quotes Bible verses so well.
