Unhappy Parent Oct 20, 2015
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The center or home is not 24 hrs. They will try to get one over and charge an additional 30-60 dollars a day if your child needed to stay after 6. They have poor communication and different teachers every week. My child's belongings came up missing on several occasions. Smells like soiled diapers almost every day. Ms. Nene has a horrible attitude. Do not recommend this center.
