So Disgusted! Mar 04, 2014

My husband and I and our 1 yr old visited this daycare recently and were completely disgusted! The house was dirty, the toys were broken and old, the woman seemed like she does the bare minimum with the children she cares for. They had junk all over which would be very dangerous for the young children that she cares for. I would NEVER EVER take my child there. YUCK! I honestly can't believe she is operating legally...
