I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I'll say this, read the incidents which have been documented by the state. My daughter was placed with a teacher she and other classmates called the "Bad Teacher," and we started to see an increase in negative behavior. It leads to her being grabbed and scratched by this same teacher. She was fired after Corporate Kids and I reported the incident to the state. I believe her firing was due to other allegations besides my daughter's. I feel strongly in my heart if preemptive actions were in place with this teacher along with a watchful eye applied to the lack of care offered to my daughter and her classmates my daughter's behavior would not have escalated to where she was asked to leave. Poor behavior is poor behavior, and we will work with my daughter to correct was is going on, but when there is a negative force as play, it will affect any child around. All this happened in a few months; this should have been a sign something was wrong. Other parents were up to the school for this same teacher. What we continued to get from Corporate Kids was,,,"We don't know what's wrong or why she's acting this way. She never did this before." In reading the past incidents listed on the State site, I see my child wasn't the only child grabbed and harmed. One had to seek medical attention. It saddens me by the decline of my daughter's behavior since she has been in the school for close to 2 years with no significant issues. But since being moved into this unqualified teacher's class its been downhill and now my wife and I are scrambling for alternative care due to my daughter being asked to leave with no warning after a pretty lousy day were her behaviors were out of control with her saying she didn't want to go back. We'll find a way to deal with that, but as a parent and former educator, I would think twice about placing my child or any other here. Research for your self or reach out to my wife, and I we will gladly sit down and explain our experience.

What a surprising review as my child has been in this center for 3 years and if I have ever had a problem I have brought it up to the director. The food that was served over the summer was from the bible way food program and was already cooked when it came to the center. My child did tell me about the expired milk and it was taken care of as soon as it was discovered. Maybe some of those issues you had should have been taken to the office to be discussed.

This is one of the worst daycares I have ever has my children in. I am absoutley disappointed, and would never recommend this facility to anyone. No offense to anyone, but if you find this daycare satisfactory, then you must have no standards for your children. The majority of the employees are extremely unprofessional and uneducated. (Very ghetto). On most occasions the teachers spoke in inappropriate slang to the children. The children had a "water day" in which all the boys and girls changed clothes into bathing suits, all in the same classroom. The food provided was very unsatisfactory. Only partially cooked, and the children were given expired milk on a few occasions. There were times when I would go to pick up my children, and rap music, with vulgar language would be playing at an extremely high volume for the kids to listen to. There were injuries to the children at least 3 times a weeks. There was no control over the children, and the teachers are clearly more worried about their cell phones and personal lives then the care of your children. Please make a better decision for your children. They really expect you to pay $150 a week for your children to be exposed to this.
