They don’t even deserve stars. I wouldn’t send my Flee here. No learning takes place. Place is a mess. Can’t even properly pay employees.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Contrary to the other comments made about this facility, I have nothing but positive things to say! The facility has an ample amount of toys and activities for the children, and the staff are very friendly and engaging. I am a cash paying parent, and not that this necessarily means anything, but I know tuition parents are in high demand, and we could take our child anywhere, but we are pleased and the Center is down the street from my job. When I drop my child off in the mornings, I am always greeted with a smile. I've met the owner as well, who seems to be a very nice young lady, and has never appeared too busy for anyone, from what I've observed. She too, engages and converses with the staff and the parents. I've asked for her a time before and the staff told me that she has a job, so she's there mostly in the evenings. My wife and I have only had one issue since our child has been here, and I was impressed with the way the matter was handled, as the Director and owner reached out to us both to ensure our requests would be met; which they were. My wife is expecting our 2nd child and we are looking forward to placing her at their new facility when it opens. I support small black businesses and would encourage parents to give them a try. They're also an accredited facility so they must be doing something right...

I am very displeased with the services that was provided for my daughter. 1. The owner is non existent 2. The Director is a liar and very unorganized 3. The only staff that is under valued is Ms. Kim in the infant room. I agree the smell is horrible, the staff needs alot of training. All together the daycare needs to be closed down and turned into a carryout. Do not take your child to this daycare. YOU WILL REGRET IT

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

This Center is in need of revamping. It has an odor that you would not believe. RUN, don't put a cat in this daycare. This place is no good for kids.

I agree with the Displeased parent. The staff is young and getto, the Director dont know what she is doing and the OWNER is THA WORST EVERY!!!! They always asking parents for money, you have to PAY for all your kids fun activities. The center do not pay for the trips, parents have to pay for child, bus and themselves. The child care center is always closed for training. They never use what they learned in training cause my child is 3yrs and still dont know her colors. BEWARE RUN FROM THIS CENTER!!!!!!

This is the most unorganized and ghetto day care center that I've ever seen!!!! Beware of the guy Dwayne that works there, that offers you constantly to care for your child on the weekend for $15 a day. The daycare teachers are horrible, and the children cry terribly when their parent arrive to get them. If you want a loving, caring environment for your child; find another provider because this is not the one. Sincerely, Displeased parent
