I have used this provider for more than 6 months

A Mothers Nightmare is the best way to describe the atrocious place! The “so called director” Patina Clark is a LIAR and a BULLY.
First, this place allowed Uninsured drivers pick up my daughter in a private vehicle, when I asked Patina about it, she lied saying that her teachers did not pick up my child in a private vehicle and that they only do that with parents who have been there for awhile and those who actually trust them. Knowing she shaded me with that line, I told her fine! Two weeks later, my daughter complains she doesn’t like riding in the teachers vehicle, so my husband and I asked her if the daycare was still picking her up in the private vehicle she replied yes. This time my husband went to the school and saw for ourselves and took a picture while they picked up my child and another parents child, WITH NO CARSEATS, and the vehicle was riding not one ONE, but TWO Donuts! When I approached Patina , she said she did not remember our conversation the first time but admitted she lied to me and she didn’t know what to say! She talked a good game and Deterred me from contacting the owner. On my days off she was still having teachers pick up the other child in a private vehicle. It was by Gods grace that I know the child’s parents and brought it to their attention in which they brought up their dislikes as well to Patina! Since then Patina and her crew have been very unprofessional to myself and my children. I brought it up to her attention that I did not appreciate how her staff acts like towards a parent who pays a lot of money for them to do their job correctly, and who voices their opinion on the safety of their children . With the constant “Yes Ma’am to death and Phony smile” Patina slowly showed me how Petty she is! Things started going left where
1) I was asked to pay for things not included in her handbook, things that sounded made up.
2) As a director she seemed to have issues with my 10 year old son who she would only have to maybe 45 minutes , twice a week take home to school.
3) One day she was taking the kids to school and had to wait at Miller until the cross guards came out, my son asked instead of waiting can she drop the ditto school kids first, Patina said No, because Your a snitch and when you get home, you will tell your parents . My son said he is not a Snitch and she yelled back Yes you are and then encouraged the kids on the bus to call him a Snitch. My 5 year old came home and told me Patina called my brother a snitch and laughted I had to correct my daughter and let her know that was inappropriate and asked my son what happened, he didn’t want to tell me because she put that in his head and was bothered other kids were calling him that.
4) The next day, I dropped my son off and my husband and I decided we will not approach her yet with what we learned for we were already keeping paper trail. We received a call from Patina asking us to talk to our some because he was asked to lay down but he was fooling around with his sister, my husband spoke to my son and asked him to relax. About 20 minutes later, I get a call that Patina took my sons phone and turned it into my sons school being Petty, especially since I still had to pick up my other kids at the daycare. I asked how come she took it and what happened, No explanation was given. My sons school called me and informed me they didn’t want to deal with Patina’s petty nonsense and my son later explained she was being rude to him and he said he was going to call his dad, as he did she tried getting his phone from him, he put it in his backpack and she threatened to kick his backpack while he has it on his back, he then took out the phone again to try and call dad and she snatched the phone out his hand scratching his finger! And finally when I got a hold of it, I called the other center to finally talk to the owner and told them that she needed to contact meand I will be going to the state, they panicked and wrote up a statement terminating my kids there because I was Unhappy! Lol! When in actuality they where tired of me calling them out! Owner Susan Akinola, did not care, did not ask to hear my side of the story, after several attempts to meet with her. I even had to involve the police to get my refund, which that was the only time I even saw the owners face! I did file a police report on director, and reported Them all to the state and BBB.
