I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I love this childcare center. All the teachers and staff are very friendly and helpful. My Nephew who just turned a year old loves it here. He don't cry when I leave in the morning and he smiles at every teather. It is a loving and nurturing environment. It's a small center but it makes it feel like home.

DO NOT SEND OR ENROLL YOUR CHILD OR CHILDREN INTO THIS DAYCARE. THIS PLACE IS THE WOSRT IVE EVER EXPERIENCED . MY BOYS WHICH WERE UNDER 9 MONTHS AND 3 AT THE TIME WERE ENROLLED THERE FOR 4 MONTHS. AND MY NEPHEW WAS ALSO ENROLLED AND HE GOT FOOT AND HAND DISEASE WHILE THERE . MY 9 MONTH OLD WAS BITTEN TWICE. ONCE IN THE FACE WHICH WAS A HUGE BITE MARK AND ONCE ON HIS ARM. DAYCARE HAD A SORRY EXCUSE AS TO WHY AND HOW IT HAPPENED. DID NOT GET A GOOD ENOUGH ANSWER. MY 3 YEAR OLD WAS SENT HOME NOT ONCE BUT TWICE WET FROM URINE. HE TOLD ME GE ASKED TO USE THE BATHROOM BUT THE TEACHERS SAID NO. MY 9 MONTH OLD WAS SENT HOME WITH FECES ON HIM THAT YOU COULD TELL WAS ON HIM FOR A WHILE. MY BOYS ALWAYS GOT SICK BECAUSE THE PLACE IS DIRTY. IT SMELLS LIKE DIRTY DIAPERS AS SOON AS YOU WALK IN THE DOOR. THERES ALWAYS TRASH IM THE MIDDLE OF THE FLOOR ALONG WITH A BROOM AND DUSTPAN. ANYONE CAN GO IN AND SAY THAT THEY ARE THERE TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD AND THEY WILL PASS YOUR CHILD OVER WITHOUT ASKING FOR NO ID WHATSOEVER . I CAN GO ON FOREVER ABOUT THIS DAYCARE FROM HELL BUT CANT DO TO NOT HAVING ENOUGH SPACE. IN THAT SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME I RECEIVED SO MANY PHONE CALLS ABOUT ONE OF MY BOUS SAYING SOMETHING HAPPENED. I FINALLY TOOK THEM OUT BECAUSE I DID NOT WANT TO GET A PHONE CALL SAYING ONE OF MY BOYS WAS IN THE HOSPITAL OR WORSE. MY FINAL STRAW WAS WHEN I GOT INTO A BIG CONFORTATION WITH THE OWNER AND HER EMPLOYEES ABOUT EVERYTHING. DO NOT I BEG YOU DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN THERE . I HONESTLY DO NOT KNOW WHY THEY HAVENT BEEN SHUT DOWN YET.

This daycare is terrible. My 7 year old daughter was hit by a boy and was told, by two "teachers", to go hit him back. Then the next week she was beaten up by 5 boys, ages up to 11 years old. The boys had enough time to kick her while she was on the ground before a "teacher" stopped it. The daycare showed no remorse and didn't even tell me what happened. When my daughter told me, I confronted them and they said I didn't have to bring her there. Also, the facilities were never clean. It smelled awful. All this in a matter of a Month. These people disgust me.

Cradles to Crayons is a very good learning center. Ilove that the kids walk in witha happy smile and when it's time for them to get picked up they never want to leave. All the employees are pleasant, well polient, and very professional. I love that when you first walk in the door, your greeted by nice people. The owners are outstanding. They help you with any concerns and are willing to explain everything. You can put all your trust in them. The director is awesome. She lets you know whats going on and what will be happening the next week. She's amazing ang trustful. I also love that they go on trips throughout the summer time, so it's also very well planned out for the schoolage kids too. I would recommend this learning center to anyone.
