Ms. Henderson Jul 15, 2013

After one week (7/1/2013 - 7/5/2013) of my daughter Samiyah attending ABC Little Steps Day Care, at 1680 Madison Avenue, she was not herself. She was sad and hated going. First: Ms. Reyes would not let Samiyah's father and I stay for her first 30 minutes of attending the Day Care because they claimed that they "don't allow parents to do that." RED FLAG!! During her first week my daughter vomited at least 3 times and her diapers looked like they fed her eggs, and I suggested that they do not feed her eggs. From the looks of her soiled diapers, they fed her eggs!!! I took my daughter out of their program after the first week and I would never recommend this Day Care to anyone. Their facility is very small, they mix school-age (ages 6 to 8 years old) kids with infants and toddlers, which I did not know about until the first day I dropped Samiyah off. I'm fearing that Samiyah was mistreated by one of these older children or by the staff. My daughter's behavior has me very worried. She very clingy to me and her father more than ever and not her usual happy self. She wasn't eating well for an entire week after she left the program and she had diarrhea and was vomiting. Ms. Reyes staff does not properly evaluate the children because at the end of Samiyah's first week Ms. Reyes' only English speaking worker, Mary, either couldn't or didn't want to tell me what was going on while my daughter was in their care. I still feel she is hiding something. Mary gave a horrible report. "Ummm, She's ok...." is not enough! 90% of Ms. Reyes' staff speaks and comprehends Spanish only. My daughter doesn't talk every well yet but she understands and comprehends English very well and I believe that the language barrier contributed to her being unable to transition from the baby sitter to daycare.
