I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

I was in a bind. Just got to the area, waiting on childcare on post so I found Linda on here to care for kid child for a week. Went to tour facility. Clean enough. Linda is very unwilling to work with parents on anything. I was very transparent with her about my situation and signed a contract set up to pay her DAILY rate (hours 8am-5pmI think). I told her I had an orientation to go to on post at 0930 and that we would be there right after(I was told it would last an hr) so we settled on approximately 11am on the first day of care. The orientation took longer than expected and I called her as soon as I got out(1120am) she declined to keep my child for the entire week, b/c I was late 20 min...and she was still going to get paid $35(her daily rate).

Like I said, I was in a bind and didn't notice all the drama here in the comments especially in her responses...take that how you want, know that you won't be exempt. Yes, it's a red flag!

A few things I didn't like
1.No sibling discounts (but I get it)
2. Like another guy commented earlier she constantly made remarks to/around my kids and me about how much stuff costs and how long it took to clean stuff... unprofessional. I really don't care that you paid $4k for books. Sorry.
3. Wanted to charge the daily rate but not honor that. I.e. I'm paying you to keep her for the day, don't drop my kid b/c I'm 20min late calling b/c of something I had no control over.
4. In her contract with full time students she wants to brush their teeth (I'm ok with) and do their hair...that's intrusive.
5. Medical paperwork--if you are coming from out of state the vaccine paperwork has to be from a doc in KY smh...not military friendly at all!
6. She claims her son lives there, I've never met him, hopefully he has passed a background check.
7. If you are not sure if you want to use her full time, know that each time you need to use her for hourly/daily care you will have to fill out a completely new contract! Every.single.time!
8. Very inflexible on when you can pick up/drop off kids. I get trying to protect nap time but that isn't always what works for our schedule and telling parents they can't pick up their kids between 12-230 is dead wrong.

If she works for you and yours, good for you but here is what I experienced and she literally quit after signing a weeklong contract before I was able to drop my child off. Do not make her your 'Plan A' for childcare or you will be left high and dry. Seriously!

In all of the years I have been a childcare provider I have not ever seen anything like I am seeing in the negative reviews a few of you have decided to post. The out right lies from you is unbelievable. I have gone above and beyond to serve the families that have come through my door and for those of you that are making negative and false remarks you were terminated for breach of contract or for failing to comply with my handbook policies. Please be advised that I keep all documentation on each family that has left my childcare and if the defamation continues I will be left with no choice but to take this to court. I am fine with you not being happy with my program. That's one thing but to go to these types of site and outright lie is something completely unacceptable.

To Jim F My response to your review. Hello, WOW! I know EXACTLY who you are and after I saw your nasty review I have to tell you I was initially stunned that you would do this to me after everything I did to help your family. But ok. The review you gave me is confirmation to me that letting your family go was the right business decision for me. So let me address your complaints and comments you have PUBLICALLY made. First of all your family came to me for help after you both stated that I came highly recommended and both of you admitted that you failed to help your child in areas of development over a long extended time and knowing it was close to your child getting ready to enter kindergarten now seriously behind. YOU asked for my help and I sincerely tried. First I asked you both if you were willing to work with your child at home on things he needed to develop after I complete my assessment and both of you said ” absolutely” but you did not. In nearly 11 years I have only given a small homework assignment to 2 children a few times and the small amount of activities I asked you to do at home in fact were not done. You chose to do something completely different on multiple occasions and I made mention of them to you a number of times. Things I had asked for were not returned most of the time so I could document your child's progress. Your child repeatedly missed days that they should have been here learning so I extended myself even though I am not required or obligated to do so and sent home materials for you to use and bring back which by the way I paid for and were never returned. Your child’s anxiety was there long before coming to me. Though I have a strong professional opinion as to why I will leave that set aside but I can assure you that is a direct result of you the parents and not me. As for the money portion. I gave your family a discount of my weekly childcare fee. You were also not legally entitled to a refund under any circumstances. You signed a binding contract. I gave it back to you anyway and then you complain? Seriously? I have a business to run and it does take money to do so. I had also reminded you that the tuition parents pay go right back into my program for the maximum benefit of the parents child and I had spent a lot for your child. Yes I care about my income just like anyone else but yet you condemn me for that. Lastly, you make a comment about my son? What the hell is wrong with you? He has EVER RIGHT to be here. He is a hard worker, works a full time job, has a CLEAN criminal background check and CLEAN child abuse record as required by the state and over the years I have run my business the children he has been around adore him. Neither one of you have even if ever barley spoken to my son. But over the course of the last three years he is not home as much because he WORKS! That was so uncalled for from you and absolutely shameful! So I am going to PUBLICALLY respond to your review as you have PUBLICALLY tried to shame me. By the way I do keep a copy of ALL documentation.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Beware! Everything looks good on paper, but it’s a very different game once your child is in. My child was very stressed every time I dropped them off. If homework was not done or turned in the CHILD would be shamed. We are talking about 3-5 year olds! Speaking of homework, there was a ton of it. More than my children who are actually in school were doing. We became concerned about the emotional well-being of our toddler while at this home. There is much talk about finances(very unprofessional) and sometimes you might feel like you’re being shaken down for money or things for the daycare. I did not hear too much negative talk about the other parents but I can see that happening. Her adult son also lives in the home and has access and interaction with the children. My advice, find somewhere else. Anywhere else.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The first year of our child attending this day care was great. Our child grew and developed new skills readily. Once our child seemed to hit a new milestone, not needing a nap anymore during the day, we were asked to leave. The provider antagonized my child by threatening and throwing a toy in the trash, and then tried to force him to nap when it no longer seemed required for the child to function appropriately. We were then asked to leave the program. Be warned, hours are not as described (unless you want to function as a personal alarm clock for the provider), and if your child does not take naps then you are likely to be asked to leave.

My son has been going to Linda for well over 1.5years. He absolutely loves her, as well as his father and I do. He has learned so much from her. He never once has complained about her and I haven't had any complaints, either. She is wonderful with every child that walks through the door and all of them seem happy! It's a clean, safe environment and I can trust that when I leave, he is well taken care of. I would recommend her to anyone!!

My child was there a few months and cried everytime we got there. All she did was tell me how bad the kids were everyday and complained about the other families. It made me wonder what she did to my child and what she was saying about me when I wasn't around.
