I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Ms. Fields is a good daycare provider. She does activities with the children and is very good at teaching them. Her daycare facility is always neat and clean and the children are well fed while under her care. However, the operation of her business could be ran a lot better. She has a small staff that consists of her family members and a neighbor, but she still takes off a lot and shuts down her day care facility completely instead of having her staff operate the facility during her absence. It causes her parents to either have to take off work or seek other childcare. However, she manages to find coverage when she wants to leave the center during the day to run her personal errands. She also follows the PG county school's inclemate weather schedule but her facility has no affiliation with the school system and she still expects payment while her parents are again left to find additional childcare. She does not follow the procedures in her own handbooks, and has made changes to it to add to her vacation, sick days, and holidays off so that she has more days off with pay to "avoid provider burn out" as she states, when she only had 3 kids in her daycare to look after. If Ms. Fields make adjustments to the way she run her business she would be extremely successful!
