I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

I am very displeased , I feel extremely discriminated against, I will never allow my children to go here. I went to register my child today and I feel disrespected I feel hurt, I'm very distressed over what occuref today at your establishment. My 3 year old daughter whom is potty trained, had to use the restroom, The lady refused to allow my daughter to use a restroom , therefore my child used it in her clothes, I believe this behavior is very unacceptable and I will be going further with my complaint, My child and myself were not treated fairly.Please do not send your children to this head start, worst place I have ever been .
