I am an employee

I have been an employee here for over four years. I have had my child in here since he was six weeks old. The teachers were very good to my child. He has grown tremendously in many ways. He is learning to speak full simple sentences and loves going to school. Creative Day school has a warm, nurturing feeling when you walk in the door. Everyone is very welcoming. My child continues to grow every day.

As a mother Creative Day School has been an incredible transition for my 3 year old daughter. My daughter has never been in childcare and has only been with her grandmother. The teachers have been so supporting and are constantly encouraging and reminding her that she is going to have a great day. As the director of Creative Day School I am beyond excited to say that my daughter has blossomed into a creative and intelligent little girl. She no longer cries during drop off and lights up when she sees her teachers. On the car ride home I hear all about her day and all the exciting things that she has learned. I am beyond blessed to have my daughter at Creative Day School and even more blessed to be the director.

This center was 'ok' until a major incident took place in which my 1 y.o. son's father went to pick him up one day, & decided to peep through the window before walking in just to witness his teacher grabbing him inappropriately by the collar of his shirt & had a finger pointed on his face yelling at him while he's crying! Apparently he had hit a child prior to his dad peeping in but we were told by the directors that we could not review the cameras b/c it was for 'manager purposes' only & that the teacher handled the situation properly & that its acceptable for them to have their hand/finger on your child's face so that they wont turn their head as their being spoken too! The teacher is still employed, they took her word instead of his Dad's, & they refuse to move her to another class so my child could stay.On another occasion with the same teacher my child had fell in the class & hurt himself pretty bad after not being properly supervised & on the incident report she stated to prevent the incident from happening again, she told my 1 year old that he needs to use his listening ears?!!! Very bad choice of words to use on a incident report given to a parent who's child has a cut/bruise by his eye. I took further actions with the NC state childcare division & with Forsyth county police department! Your best bet is to look elsewhere for childcare if the safety of your child is your best concern b/c Creative Day will cover for their 'favorite' employees regardless if a parent witness a incident or not!
