I worked at Candyland for 3 months, and I don't recommend it as a good place to send a child. Candyland marginally meets the minimum standards of a child care facility, but there are many better schools. The place remains in business because of a decent percentage of the students receive subsidized tuition from the government or Catholic Charities.

On the plus side, Candyland provides a structured learning environment for children, offers transporation to and from school for older children, and has reasonable prices. Unfortunately, I found that the kids were yelled out too frequently, employee turnover was rampant, maintenance of the facility was sub-par, and state-mandated child-to-adult ratios were routinely violated.

The owner of the facility is a nice woman, but isn't very good at management. She tries to ensure that the facility is kept up, and state law is complied with. However, in my time there, I saw mold on one of the walls in the building, a child escape from the yard because a gate was broken, and one adult minding 15-20 young children.
