irritated Jun 13, 2015
I have used this provider for less than 6 months

The employees are rude and the director is a joke. No people skills and honestly after a while i wasnt even comfortable leaving my son there. They lost his belongings all the time (including a very expensive backpack) and he constantly came home with bumps and bruises that nobody could explain. I would rather bring my child to my job then attempt to leave them at this horrible place.
