I have used this provider for more than 6 months

This daycare deserves multiple 5 start reviews on this site. My wife and I have been using this facility for our son for more than 6 months, and it's been a great experience throughout. Communication has been excellent, and the director certainly DOES make her cell phone number available. The staff and clientele are great, and my son has made several friends while there. The facilities and atmosphere are great. 5/5 highly recommended.

I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

Don't bother wasting your time with this childcare provider. After fighting to get the owner to call me back about the information about this location (over a week), we finally got in to have an interview. I had to miss a nights worth of work to do so. Did not offer to even let us see the room in which our child would be. We then had to provide contacts that were never called to begin with. We tried again for another week to get a hold of Alice Croft, the owner to see how the process was progressing. Her daughter that works there answered our call after spending DAYS trying to get the owner to call back. They keep the Voice Mail full so you won't be able to follow their procedures in which will get you kicked out of their program. They fully deserve the one star rating!

Actually the director of A Treasure Chest Childcare gives out her personal cellphone information so that she is available 24/7 and an Alice Croft has never been employed at this center.
