I have used this provider for more than 6 months

2004/2006 My two oldest came here & this place was great! Almost like family so it makes sence that I would come back 6 years later when I had another baby. however this time around I did notice some changes


Don't do it! Here's y,
1. I witnessed the secretary push a baby, a one year old to the ground because he was in her way. After falling , the baby begins to cry and reach for the secretary, to which she replies, really? Really!? You going to act like that Elijah?! She then proceeded to look at me and smile.

2. (Same day as 1.) I saw a baby hit another baby in the head with a toy object, and the baby started crying, and got a bump and red mark on his head immediately after. The secretary neglected to check on the crying baby' so I told her 1 hit the other & she responds, "No he didnt, he fell." I explained what I saw & she responded with, "NO he just fell." so I got the picture... Now the teacher walks in & the secretary lied to the teacher about the bump so the teacher would communicate to his parents that he fell instead of the truth, which is he was hit in the head with a hard toy & that's why he had the bump.

3.) I've seen the babys sharing food out of their mouths.

4.) I've seen other teachers snatch toys from the baby's because they were too noisy & made the teachers ears hurt.

5.)The older kids are spoken to in a condescending manner. I would NOT approve of their tones to the children. It is extremely harsh.

The final straw was picking up my daughter & hearing her crying, I crept into the classroom & witnessed a different teacher Abruptly sit/SLAM my 1 year old to her butt because she wouldn't sit when the teacher was telling her. mind you my baby is 1 and was 1 week new to day care.

Now after speaking to MULTIPLE entities about my next steps I called Kiddies Kingdom to try & rectify the situation. After the identifying myself & asking what steps were taken, the same secretary got on the phone & told me I was wrong & the camera shows her being nice to my baby. BIG LIE because I know what I saw. I will go in to check those cameras. I am reporting this as far as I can.

My Name is Sesily Monique & I own Hot Headz Hair Salon LLC.
