I have used this provider for less than 6 months

My kids started going here about 2 months ago, to start Cheryl (Owner) states that certain rules and regulations as Arizona state requirements when In fact they are not, she makes up her own rules and puts the state on it so parents are pressured to abide on what she wants. Secondly, My 3month old was in her infant class, the room is tile which is completely unsafe for babies who are walking or crawling, the floors and base boards are black and look as if they have never been scrubbed, and to think my child would of been walking/ crawling on the floor is gross parents and teachers walk all over floor with their shoes where babies walk at. Thirdly, the Children are given sink water to drink which in my eyes is completely gross, it cannot be that expensive to get a filtration system or even water dispensers so the children can have fresh water. Also, one days walking into daycare I noticed the kids being fed Ramen noodles for lunch how unhealthy is that? The teacher miss. Tina (Cheryl's daughter) yells at the kids all day has the kids as if they were in military school, during the peak of heat she takes the kids outside to line up on a back wall and stand until they are quite, Cameras in the facility Do not work so you cannot trust anything they say because they have no proof or anyway to explain events that happen, or even have the person who hurt my child removed from the daycare( Yea Katie still works there) I've watched Katie aggressively handle other children when they do not listen to her. Katie has no business working with children she does not have the patients or TLC to be around children. To end, my 20month old was in her bigger infant class where it all went down hill, my son had his shoulder, elbow dislocated (nursemaides elbow) when asking the teacher mrs.katie what happened she responded in an very aggressive manner that she didn't know, and that he had only had an hour nap and that his diaper had been changed and he has been fussy ever since then, Katie then walked out of the daycare leaving (9)1 year olds in the class room unattended, and stated "I'm leaving and not dealing with this s*** today" leaving me with questions unanswered to what had happened to my son! Questions now how long was he left with these injuries? Why didn't I get a call about him being abnormal fussiness? The list goes on parents have left the daycare due to the issues I they have had. This is the worst experience I have ever had, now I can no longer trust anyone with my children, children's playhouse preschool is the worst daycare in the valley and I have been to a lot of horrible daycares but this by far tops it off! Now we are stuck with medical bills from injuries and pain and suffering that our baby was hurt.
