Great staff. Fun environment for kids. My son enjoys attending and will be ready for Kindergarten once he is old enough.

I am the owner

If I am, all that you say I am, why would your family have continued our services for more than three and a half years? Your school-ager even attended for a couple of those years. Your review is very important to me, but only if it is an honest and true opinion, and not hear-say. I still very much so enjoy my life, my A Team staff and ALL the children that we are surrounded by. I totally disagree with your opinions but thank you anyways.

Sharon is often upset at the kids or the staff. She is very critical of the children. Defensive, Little compassion or empathy for children who don’t fit the mold.. Just generally unhappy. Noticed high turnover. Certain staff are good, wasn’t enough to keep us there. Shows favoritism, especially to grandchildren who seem to always be in her office monopolizing her time.

I am a mother of three children that currently attend Country School House (preschooler, toddler, infant). My children have attended this center since 3 months of age. I LOVE the staff and the facility. I trust all that they do with my children. They are caring and thoughtful. They do so much work when it comes to planning a curriculum. My children come home happy and worn out from a day of fun with friends. I have had issues with staff in the past, but once I speak with Sharon about my concerns, the issues are corrected. This is the same with other children who are disrupting the learning of the children. Sharon and her staff do such a wonderful job making sure that the children are given the best opportunities to learn. Sharon will bring in entertainment (meaning we don't have to worry about children riding a bus!) and it's at NO COST to the family!! She is constantly bringing in new toys and teaching aids to keep the children engaged. I can't say enough good things about this center. I have toured other centers and they just don't compare. This place is like a second home to my family.

This daycare discriminates against children that are a bit slower than an average child and will make any excuse not to take a certain type of child full time. My son is 3 years old and going through that typical terrible 3's stage and every parent knows how that goes. Anyways, i had made previous arrangements to bring my son into the daycare full time and arranged that that spot be held for him. Once he adjusted from the home daycare setting to the center setting, the owner Sharon insisted that my son was a problem child and had some sort of disability because he didn't always follow instructions and that he needed an IEP. Well, three year old's can be that way sometimes. So i spent weeks trying to make an arrangement with two school districts to help get my son an IEP set up. Once this was taken care of, Sharon decided to tell me that she still couldn't take him in full time, even though i have previously arranged for him to be there full time. She went behind my back and allowed other children to take his place, making it so that him being there makes the center go over capacity. After reading some reviews on this daycare and every violation that this daycare had, i would recommend parents to remove their children from this daycare. Sharon's exact words to me were that there is not enough staff to handle him one on one and i am better off quitting my job to take care of my son myself. I am a single mother trying to make ends meet and i have this daycare provider try to tell me that i am better off pulling him for daycare and quitting my job. This daycare will NEVER receive my business again and i will highly discourage parents to let their children attend here.

I have seen photos from employees of kids eyes taped shut to help them sleep. The owner Sharon runs the company based on who she likes and doesn't run it on what's best for the children. I would never bring my kid here. If you want a daycare where they card about your child individually I would look elsewhere
