I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Parents BEWARE!! Before I start with my personal experience with this, what I call, babysitting service... give EEC a call and ask for a full background report. There’s a list a mile long of violations (ie: giving child medicine without parental consent, not sanitizing toys, breaking confidentiality of parent and child by sharing information, leaving food out, serving food with expired dates, cleaning supplies within reach of kids.. the list goes on).. now for my personal experience.. my step son currently goes here and it’s been awful. He’s set to enter kindergarten in a few months and can’t even write his name yet. My fiancé and I have been teaching him all of his letters, sounds, etc on our own time so he can at least be somewhat prepared for school. The staff is a joke. They were mad at my fiancé and I because my step son wanted us to make him a lunch from home and we stopped paying the school their lunch fee on the days he was sent a home lunch. They put us through h*ll over it; they even went as far to take his lunch bag, put it upside down, as everything I neatly packed him slammed onto the table. (EXTREMELY degrading and just plain rude!!) they were trying to say the lunches I packed were not healthy enough (we packed him a pb&j, animal crackers, sugar free jello, yogurt, cereal, juice box, fruit snacks, apple/fruit cup) and every time we fixed what they said, it was another problem like the food was making him sick or not filling him up (SERIOUSLY?!) But whenever I went in the school, there were opened chip bags and cookies all over the counter (that I have pictures of by the way). There was a time that I sent him to school with a lunch and they proceeded to tell me it was unhealthy and needed at least a milk. So I went to the store and bought a milk, cheese, and an additional fruit and veggie and returned to the school only to find that they went to the park to have lunch(the cook informed me) as I was walking out, I saw his lunch SITTING IN THE WINDOW IN THE SUN clearly not with him at the park. So I brought the lunch and other food I just bought to the park and they told me that my step son said hes having school lunch instead. (Mind you it costs money for their lunch) so they left it up to a 4 yr old to decide if his dad was going to pay for lunch that day after sending him with one already. WTF?! There has also been issues between my fiancé and the mother, which the daycare has no problem involving themselves in because the mother is just as trashy as this daycare so clearly they get along lovely! They are constantly crossing boundaries with us and causing more problems between us all. They treat us like dirt; don’t even greet us half of the time. Most of the staff are teenagers. Every time I walk in they’re sitting on the floor gossiping about boyfriends (HELLO there are children around that you’re not even bothering to engage in!) not to mention the god awful smell of mold/mildew. I could honestly go on for days with stories of this dump... Overall very nasty, awful place. If I could rate this in the negatives I WOULD!!!

My two children attended the Appleseed and they felt so important!  Their needs were met and their days were filled with happiness!  I would recommend Appleseed to anyone looking for quality cahildcare.
