I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The staff is horrible, rude, and disrespectful. If you mention anything to the staff regarding your child and how you would like them to care for your child they will take it as an insult and take it out on your child. My daughter kept coming home saying she was not given a food, snack, or milk. At first I thought maybe she wasn't telling the truth until I contacted the center and was told by the teacher that she wasn't given a snack because of her behavior. My child is only three years old and this center decided to discipline her by not giving her food/ snack. Unless you plan to pop up everyday and every hour throught the day I wouldn't recommend this center. Also, this center is not very clean. They never clean the kids restrooms at this center or make the children wash their hands. My oldest daughter caught STREP THROAT three times last year from this place and my youngest caught ringworms from the carpet in the classroom. PLEASE do not waste your money. This place is one of the cheapest in the area but you pay for what you get.
