This is the worse daycare in town. Do not send your children here. I was told never to come back, after my daughter told me that one of the teachers (Ms. Sammy) choked her. The owner never offered to find out what happened or to do an investigation. She did not care at all that this incident happened at her business. The facility is very poorly managed. My daughter would bring home "projects" on donated paper from other businesses. I could tell, because there was used on the other side and not by my daughter. I never saw my child come home with any learning material. The staffing is terrible. The are extremely rude. This includes the director Patty and the owner Jodee. I was never able to talk to the teachers that were there during the day. The pick-up staff was generally teenagers that were not properly watching the child and could not tell me what happened during the day. If an incident happened during the day, no one in the facility could tell me what happened. The form of disciple they use is to yell at the children. The food that they provide to the children is extremely poor quality and not enough quality. I talked to an ex-employee from Brownsburg Academy that said she started to bring in food, because the school did not provide the children enough to eat. The snacks that they give are generally sugary and not nutritious. They also provide the children with too much juice and not enough water. I would not be surprise if a child were to die at this facility. If you put your children in this daycare, then you will put them at serious risk. I wish the state would come in and shut them down, because it is stealing from the community by charging high rates with the lowest quality in town. Save your money and your time and DO NOT TRY IT.

In a more recent development, the Fire Marshall (who is the husband of the owner of Brownsburg Academy) has been going around to other daycares and tries to get them shut down in order to get his wife more business. I would rather quit my job and go on welfare before I would ever send my daughter to that daycare again.
