I have used this provider for more than 6 months

HORRIBLE excuse for childcare! The staff are always yelling at the children and telling them to shut their mouths. It smells like mildew and although one the staff is black, they are racist! I wouldn't pay them to care for a pet rock! DO NOT take your children there!
