I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The facility does not foster the spiritual, morale, or Christian values and beliefs of the church and the director stated that she is not required or bond to the church's standards as this school IS NOT A PART OF THE CHURCH AND SHE IS NOT A CHURCH MEMBER in fact not one staff member is a church member and there is no sign of any spiritual guidance evident. They had my 3 yr old son unattended in the restroom for over 15mins which lead to him playing in his poop and smearing it on the stall to which a Teacher Ms T and the director Ms Sonya felt it acceptable to have my 3yr old clean it up. Very unhealthy and unsanitary. The staff does not want to be accountable for the children and does not accept responsibility for the children there behavior or their actions. Forget about getting an accurate story when accidents occur the story will change from teacher to teacher or one day to the next. My son attended with about 6 others for almost a year and over the last couple months the children have been fighting and using undesirable language to which the director stated there is nothing she can do short of whooping the kids and that isn't allowed showing that she does not have the experience or knowledge to properly deal with the issues that have arisen over the curse of the last few months. So with a clueless staff that doesn't seem interested in the spiritual growth and development of the children within the school. I have decided to pull my son out of the school. I did discuss the issues with the board vice president. Prayers that she can get the several major issues addressed and properly dealt with for the sake for the HDAC facility and remaining students. Good luck if you decide to use this facility...

My sincerest apologies for you and your son's unfavorable experience here at HDAC. We have new management and all new staff members. All staff members obtain CDA certification and are well trained in early childhood development. In addition to training, we are now a Texas Rising Star accredited facility. Supervision of all children as well as caregiver accountability is high priority and a requirement here at our center. Our new model and management is design so that we provide a high quality, nurturing educational environment. A place where educators and families come together to encourage each child to reach their maximum potential emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually.
