Worst experience in child care ever... my child has always been a daycare kid and I have NEVER had a problem. I was told more than once that my child was the problem and that’s why we were struggling. The teachers never once tried to stop bad situations and refused to talk to the other parents involved in the situation. DO NOT GO HERE..

I have been taking my son here for a month now and so far so good. It is smaller than where we are from, but the teachers have been great and my son seems to like it.

Horrible. Horrible. I dont even know why they are still open if they are always understaffed. Forest Friends disappointed me with what they do to a child I know. The director should be ashamed of her self. They dont really care about the kids. They just need a paycheck.
