I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The staff is horrible and the front office especially. I don't know how many times I gave my new phone number to the front office lady and the teacher would call the wrong number. They don't communicate at all. I pulled all my kids out because there was abuse toward my kid. Another part time helper called and reported. Instead of firing the teacher she quit. Before that, they had a teacher in the two year old room not changing diapers and my child and others brought to their attention. They did nothing. Horrible Horrible daycare. When I called spoke to the director there was no "I'm sorry" or any other talk about what happened. Then I asked about a refund, because I payed the day before. First they didn't give it all back to me. Even when I had to lose three days of work and take my kid to the hospital for the abuse that your teacher caused. Thank god you had one good worker who didn't want to be apart of it. I would never recommend bringing any child here!!! The owner is just as horrible as the staff too!!

This is by far the worst school that I have ever been too. The office staff is very unprofessional and they do not know how to run a proper daycare facility. The teachers there were very nice but I feel like in my opinion aren't properky trained either. I will not recommend this school to anyone!

I give 1 star rating to the office staff of National Academy and 5 star rating to the teacher's and caregiver's there. I recently removed my child from National Academy's care due to the office personnel neglecting to take emergency action when my nephew was injured and was left lying in their office for over two hour's with a broken arm instead of being taken to the hospital. The office staff should have called an ambulance or have taken him directly to the ER themselves but took no action at all. My sister also removed her son at that time. The teachers are great and I have no complaints with them. I think that the office staff should have better training on how to handle emergency situations so no other child has to suffer in pain unnecessarily.
