I have used this provider for less than 6 months

I was picking my daughter there and I went inside to get her. While inside I saw A woman who used to work at the Sandbox, her name is Baily. The Sandbox had to let her go for drug use. I was not happy to learn that this known drug user of Enid is now working at Applewood.
