I have used this provider for more than 6 months

This is not a safe environment for any child, the people here are monsters! They are not professional and they mistreat the children that attend there. They remove the navigate comments so parents are not aware of the violations they have. Please do your research before you leave your child at this center. If your child is enrolled at this Center he/she may be the victim of abuse or mistreatment, like my Grandson was. The teacher and director of Foundations Christian Preschool was unable to provide satisfactory explanations for marks and bruises on him. We asked him why he didn't like it there and he said they hit him, we asked him who and he said his friends hit him every day and that his teacher was mean to him all the time. It was brought to my attention that my four year old grandson was isolated from the rest of the children all the time. This has been going on for months, he was not allowed to eat or participate in some activities with any of the other children, or apparently even nap with them. At nap he was put behind a wall in a corner by himself to sleep. When speaking to the director, she admitted to knowing that he was isolated from the other children and that she knew it was wrong and if we would leave him there that she would work on changing it in the next few weeks. We noticed on the centers Facebook a picture of my grandson was posted of him not being able to participate in a classroom party and was sitting at at table by himself facing the wall with his name on it. When doing more research on this facility not only have there been multiple allegations from parents saying their kids were hit there, but this past year a 5 year old climbed over the fence and was not noticed missing until some people at McDonald's noticed a small child walking in the parking lot alone and reported it. This is not a safe environment for any child. I hope no other child has to go through the mental and physical abuse my grandson did.

My 2 daughters have been at this center since they were 6 weeks old. They are now 5 and 6 and still currently attending their after school program The teachers there are so loving and caring and I couldn't ask for anything better. They fully prepared my children for elementary school with manners and education. I would recommend this center to anyone looking for a fun, christian based, loving center. It is like a home away from home to us now!

We were at this childcare facility two days before leaving. On day two, my one year old daughter came home with fire ant bites all over her legs. I didn't receive a phone call, it wasn't mentioned to me when I picked her up and a note wasn't sent home. Now over one year later I am receiving a 'collections letter' from "Foundations Christian Preschool" (formerly Cornerstone Academy) that we have a balance and are being turned over to collections. We were there for TWO DAYS. We paid for two weeks of childcare (serving as our two week notice) as well as a registration fee. They got more than their money's worth from us. When we left I spoke with Jason (who now I'm being told has nothing to do with the childcare, it's his wife) and he said the money we had paid along with our notice squared us away financially. And that since we had already paid, I was welcome to still bring our daughter for the remainder of the week. No thanks. Not bringing her back to a place where she's not supervised on the playground and parents are not informed. We ended up at Wheeler Pines (a Bradley School) and were VERY happy there. Never looked back at this place until now. Cornerstone or "Foundations" is a joke. I felt very uncomfortable with the staff and how us and my daughter were treated there. They don't deserve the money they did receive from us, and certainly don't deserve additional money! If it becomes an issue, I'm glad to show the picture I took of the fire ant bites to our attorney.

My child currently attends Foundations on Belair Rd. We have had some serious ups and downs with this place. I don't think he is mistreated in any way NOW! Since they have become independent from Cornerstone Academy, things seem to be a little better. Definately could be more organized and feed them more. Portion sizes are very small and my son is always thirsty and hungry when I pick him up. No very good with the diaper changes either. I have picked up my son too many times with a pull up so wet he wets his clothes before we make it home. Turnover rate with teachers is a little crazy. I guess you have to take the good with the bad sometimes. As long as the bad is not too bad....
