I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I am writing this because I wish I had seen an honest review on Brass Ring Learning Center, West Mifflin when looking for quality care for my child. We used this facility for 2 1/2 years with few issues until starting Pre-k room. During our last year, there were several times I had that mother's intuition, but my child couldn't communicate well, and how do you really know? You ask questions, get the right answers and think you are being that overly cautious mom. It wasn't until a fellow mom had a big issue that several of us started talking. Once we compared stories, we knew we weren't crazy. Upon sharing it on the internet, the stories I got back from people over the last 7 years were hard for me to even grasp that this facility was still in business and I was angry at myself for not realizing what was happening to many of these children sooner.

You won't see any dings from the state on this place. They know how to look perfect when it comes down to business. The director and owner are both extremely unprofessional with how they act, spreading gossip or talking terribly about you and your child to other parents or teachers, which I have witnessed. There was a facebook post ridiculing a parent on what was sent for lunch, as the director referred to them as dumb*ss and dumbtard. Several staff members could be seen constantly on cell phones all day or observed through facebook posts. Getting enough to drink was a problem as well, where kids were so thirsty at pick up, gulping down water and they aren't allowed drinks during lunch to make sure food is eaten first. The daycare told some parents they provided milk and others they didn't. I was notified not to bring milk and ran into it being expired for 2 weeks. The director blamed the owner and I dismissed it, but that wasn't the only occasion. Obviously kids aren't drinking enough milk if it doesn't need replaced. Some children expressed to parents they were not allowed to go to the bathroom while outside or at bus stop and had accidents. The staff's elementary school daughter has been seen carrying around infants. A child whose mother we knew asked myself and my husband on a different occasion to help clean them up, which we did in front of a staff member who had no issues with this. A staff member was telling my child the police would come and take him to jail if he didn't listen. They made a 3 y/o who loves impersonating police suddenly be deathly afraid of them, screaming in tears when mentioning police or jail. I again dismissed thinking I was crazy until other parents confirmed- "Oh, that is why my child must be talking about jail suddenly or said your child was going to jail." It took us months for him to be ok with police again.

I am so thankful a mom had a major issue with her child being made to clean up her own poop accident. If not for that, I wouldn't have started to question all of my little intuition moments and get confirmation there were major issues going on. I truly thought this daycare would finally get its ding it had coming for a long time from many many parents, but yet again- nothing can be proven and it is the law that they are not allowed to help your child clean themselves. It may be the law, but in my opinion, it is disgraceful that they are so proud of themselves for following the rules and leaving a 3 y/o to bag up her own feces and send it home to her mom. The director may say the story is all twisted, but I choose to believe that 3 y/o and the pictures of bagged up poop and wipes sent home with her. There were many reviews posted on the daycare's business page which were immediately removed and promptly replaced with raving reviews. Parents witnessed the director asking other parents for good reviews to post online in light of events going on. You can't always believe reviews you see, but rest assured.. this one is real and honest. Parents- be very careful when choosing a daycare to take care of your most important creations. You just don't know what could be going on behind closed doors.
