About the Provider

Description: Our philosophy of early education is that children learn best through play. We provide them with a lot of opportunities each day for self exploration and choice within the activities they participate in, which helps them develop autonomy and self help skills. The teacher does large and small group activities throughout the day, while focusing on each individual child's growth and development. We challenge children at all ages - from infants to preschool and kindergarten - with developmentally appropriate programs based on skill level and the skills of typically developing children in each age group.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My son attends CCA and has since he was 6 weeks old. We absolutely love this preschool and cannot be happier with his teachers. Each classroom as two teachers all day and we can see the love they put into their classrooms. Even dropping him off and picking him up every day I walk down the halls and see the classrooms and every teacher seems genuinely happy to be there. The administration has never failed to address a concern no matter how small. Even the kitchen manager is a happy soul. I will never take my children any where else.

This daycare deliberately poisoned my daughter.

One of our biggest apprehensions when moving to AR was with the education systems here.
We visited several of the schools in the area to determine which one we liked best before we even picked a place to live.

We loved Central Christian Academy's sales pitch. They had webcams, so we could see what our daughter would be up to during the day. The teachers were all smiles when we met them. They promised to accommodate her needs in every way. Even though it was the most expensive place in Conway, we decided to go with Central Christian Academy.

Much like purchasing a used car "only driven by an old lady going to church on Sundays", this place was nothing like what the sales rep promised.

After our daughter started going there, she kept coming home ill. After only two days in their care, we had to keep her home. She’d never been in daycare, so we assumed she was picking up viruses. It would suck for a while, but this would be good for her in the long run.

After some investigation, we realized they were giving her food she was allergic to, and that is why she had been vomiting. The reason she got better when we kept her home was because she was no longer consuming the substance that was poisoning her system.

Like all daycares, CCA requires parents to fill out a list of allergies. We did. In fact, we emphasized this allergy repeatedly. Even after we told them not to give it to her, they persisted.
They claimed it was state law to provide certain foods. Without a doctor's note, they claimed they could ignore certain allergies on the list we provided them. According to their staff, it was up to my 3-year-old child to not consume the substance that she is allergic to. If her allergy was really serious, we would have provided them with an epipen.

The owner eventually contacted me about this event via text message. He never apologized for poisoning my child and was very flippant about the entire situation.

Then, after we pulled out child from their services, they still charged us for two more weeks. Also, the webcams do not work with OSX. They don't tell you that until after you pay for it. From my experience, this place only cares about your money not your child.

If you love your child, avoid this daycare.
