I have used this provider for less than 6 months

I would not recommend this daycare to anybody! I took my son out of this daycare recently for many reasons: they never once ID anyone that came to pick my son up even if they had never seen them before, his clothes were lost before, his medicine was not put back in his bag, they would randomly close without even telling the parents like one day I pulled up on my way to work and they had a sign on the door saying they were closed, did not attempt to tell one parent! I walked in multiple times to my son sitting in the floor with his face red screaming and the woman just said "he just started crying" well no, I heard a baby crying when I walked in, I signed him out and got his car seat before I walked back there to find out that it was my son scream and she was just sitting in the chair! And they manager, Regina, is so rude. I never really liked her cause she seemed like she always had an attitude or made smart remarks but tried to hide it behind a joke but the final straw was when I took my son to the doctor to get a checkup after finishing his meds so we were late getting there, probably about 1030. She asked me if I knew what time it was and continued to be like well what are you going to do when moves up to the next room? Like ummm... if I am paying 100$/week and having to bring supplies like paper towels, germx, Clorox wipes, and tissue each month, which is ridiculous!!!, then I don't think you have the right to get on to me about when I bring MY son in!! Absolutely ridiculous! We are there everyday before 8 and she wants to get an attitude.... no! I took him out immediately! I even messaged the owner to speak to her about it and she read my message and ignored it! Shows what a great business they are! After leaving I made a post on fb about it and a friend told me she used to work there and Regina yelled at her one day for holding a baby that wouldn't stop crying during nap time. Said she told her to put her down that she had been a brat all morning then grabbed her by her arm and leg and flipped her over and threw a blanket on her!! I always had a bad feeling about her but I am so glad my son no longer goes there!
