I have interacted with facility and its staff for MANY years. It is family owned and operated. It still retains its status of longest running, if not the only ODC (Original Daycare)in the Conway area. They must be doing something right! The Director, Ms. Susan, is direct with a solid moral/value compass mixed with a strong business ethic. Pre-Schools don't run on air. She absolutely puts ALL children first, above adults. The two main teachers, Ms. Lindsey and Ms. Amberly, are awesome educators who add laughter,creativity and are always looking for ways engage their classes. They have done such things as an inside garden and grocery store, teacup party, Superheroes and Princess/Princes. Every person who works at Caring Hands is a child advocate first. The combination works. Soldier On, Women!

I am the owner

Caring Hands is an excellent facility. Operating since 1979. The person who wrote a bad review is no longer living in Arkansas. Her son was precious and the only problem I had was with the parent. The parent was rude to the teachers caring for her child. I am very out spoken and honest. I put the needs of every child in my center above everything else. I would appreciate it if parent would put down the cell phone when bringing and picking up their child/ren. Communication with the staff concerning their child is very important. ALL children are a gift from God and deserve dignity and respect. My staff are excellent with the children. All full time teachers have been with us for over ten years. In closing, most of the negative reviews of Caring Hands are people who's children never attended our program. If you want TRUTH ask the kindergarten teacher the success rate of the children that have attended our program.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

If I could give 0 stars I would. The owner is cheap, rude, and psychotic. She never has anything good to say about anyone. She argues with you about everything. She follows old DHS rules and makes up her own as she feels necessary. She will arrange an agreement with you just to harass you about it when she hasn't followed through on her end. She does not care about the children, just your money. In the summer she keeps it hot, in the winter she keeps it cold so she saves on her electric bill. She uses old paper plates for the kids to eat on. The teachers are the only good thing about this place.
