I worked for the employer for about a year in 2015 and two of the employees that had been there for at least several years would talk poorly about the children (saying things like those boys are gay) in front of them.

Also, some of the toddlers who had speech impediments didn't get help to improve on their speech impediments because my co-workers would rather talk with one another than help the toddlers. Also most of the employees didn't role model how to behave (e.g., show the aggressive children how roll their cars on the table as they walked around it in line formation with others. The more impatient toddlers would get frustrated with the slower paced toddlers and in effect would hit the slower toddler with a car or shove them. Consequently I role modeled to the other teachers how they could teach the toddler to play better by going joining the toddler in play and going around the slower ones while making zooming noises. Still yet the co-workers who'd been there for several years still didn't role model such behavior even when aggression happened. They see the behavior happen and yell at the toddler that was aggressive and comfort the one that got hit. And for whatever reason the CEO favored such employees over more intelligent and professional employees such as myself!). Additionally, when toddlers did physically aggress other toddler rarely were did their behavior get the type of attention it needed because the school didn't have an extra staff members to take the aggressive child out of the room for time out when he or she couldn't sit in a specified corner for time out.

Additionally, upon trying to promote improved multimedia by watching and recommending shows similar to Sesame Street [where real life children role modeled good social skills and curiosity] and offering my tablet and software that streamlined said shows to the TV set the CEO said that she wasn't interested in what I offered because it would cost her $15 a month to pay for Internet services and she'd just recently disconnected it. I replied by saying that it was worth a try to promote positive behavior.

Futhermore, one of the employees that the CEO hired before I quit played songs with subliminal sexual messages and adult like ideas and upon complaining to the CEO the co-worker still continued to play the songs despite the complaint. You'd think that the CEO would have cared enough to check in occasionally in the classroom and be displeased with such songs, but because the co-worker continued to play the cassette tapes and because non of us were talked to in a group meeting about such songs, my impression was that the music was approved of despite the concern.

In the end I quit because I realized that what I had offered wasn't appreciated and CEO come across as liking me (rarely asked me for advice or talked with me as a peer like she did the others) though I thought that I excelled in role modeling and showing care in how to improve on the overall well-being of the toddlers.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Gabbys review is complete false. I’ve worked there and watched a 2 year old get kicked in the chest by a teacher that worked there named Annette! They had no cameras at the time. And the woman that kicked the two year old in the chest was protected by the director because of their connection and how long she’d worked there. I’m glad this place is under new management. If the allegations were false why is it under new management? IT DESERVES to be and I hope Annette got what she deserved because this wasn’t her first time abusing a child at this center. People please send your child somewhere with cameras. I now work at NASA Langley child development center. Safest and best place I’ve ever worked.

I am a part time employee who taught here since the early 90’s. My 2 sons went here and so have many of my former neighbors children and grand children. The accusations that were said by a former employee are not true. Social Service and Child Protection Services investigated and found the accusations to be false. I am now a grandmother and my soon to be 2 year old granddaughter will be coming here. It is a wonderful childcare center.
