I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I have had my child in this daycare for 3 years, Whom has had the same teacher majority of the time, if the teachers didn't stay they more than likely moved on to evolve different things in life. I have a wonderful experience with this daycare, they do teach God love and wonderful bible teachings. Never have I experienced hatred from this child care center and at that my child is 5 and can read and write very well. This day care has developed my child with exceptional results and has been a great support system at times when needed for my family. Any where you go for any reason there are problems, its the way you communicate and handle situations that matter. I would recommend this day care to any parent for safe, reliable and loving place for children to learn, play and grow!

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Understaffed, teachers don't even stay a full year before quitting, my kids were there for multiple years and never had the same teacher for more than 6 months. They teach God hate instead of God love and my five year old was told things like marriage is between a man and a woman, and 666 will make you burn and go to hell. The employee turnover alone shows huge problems, but don't even get me started on what they teach you kids and call God! Run away fast!! We should have left years ago with their staff!!
