Teachers genuinely care but they are not taken care of by management. As a parent, it’s a shame to see that I pay good money and the people who are actually caring for the children are suffering. Ive seen teachers out working other jobs to compliment. Center is overall good, but it’s worrisome to see the teachers struggling.

The owners daughter is very rude and unprofessional. She has no people skills and should not work with the public or as a role model for children. She is not qualified to be in that setting, her only reason for being there is she is "the owners daughter". I will say I choose the facility because of Ms Brittney who is outstanding with the children and truly cares for the children, it's sad to see her talent and skill wasted in such a poor facility.

I have used this provider for more than 6months. I can say the owner takes pride in the facility and loves each child the same. No daycare is without faults however Mrs Evans does all she can to ensure the staff are up to date on education and cleanliness has always been a high priority. There are several centers in the area and not all give the required love and attention to our children when we are away from them. Hats off to Mrs Evans and all of her efforts along with the staff to turn this Place around. As parents we have to do our parts as well when leaving our children in the care of others. Yes wr want clean bottles back and clean faces and diapers which are all requirement requirements from the state. In return we have to ensure we are dropping them off just as we are expecting them back. A Daycare is just that ...a daycare...to care for the children while the parents are away. Keep in mind people make mistakes. One mistake does not represent the daycare facility as a whole. I would recommend this center to anyone looking to have their children cared for just as you would yourself.

I’m very upset with this daycare, they do not keep up with kids bottles. I sent my nephew to this daycare with his bottles n I got back another child’s bottles. N my baby has been constipated for the past few days because they give him cereal a lot n I’ve reached out n told them to stop n they continue to give him cereal. Now I picked my baby up today n he has a pink eye he didn’t have a pink eye when I dropped him off so therefore there a child in the daycare with a pink eye, when they shoulda sent that child him instead of keeping him, n I know there not washing there hands at all. So therefore I’m very upset with this daycare. With this being said I’m getting in touched with the coporate office n making a compliant. My child will not be going back to this daycare at all.
