I am the owner

Hi Mindi,

It's Issie,
Thank you for this review, Most people have left reviews locally on our Facebook page, but I'm sure you knew you may receive some backlash from our families, who would call you out.

You were the very first person I gave a termination letter too and the reason was because your lack of parenting. You were actually in our program less than 2 months by the time I gave your termination letter. You were the very first family to ever receive a letter of termination. I also gave you a full 30 days to find care else where. You stayed the full 30 days. I hope you get over your grudge of being terminated. We did terminate in November. And your post is from March. Your grudge is longer than you were in our program.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

When I met owner, Issie Gehring , I thought Gehring Nurseery might be a good fit for my child. They had my child outdoors almost every day, which I liked. Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that there is a serious lack of good management and clear communication between the owner, staff, and parents. Instead of calling you or speaking to you in person, they like to post information on their brightwheel account. The problem was that the information on the account was frequently inconsistent. Sometimes they would post schedule changes, nap times, incidents that occurred, toileting and other daily routine events. Other times they would post nothing. They frequently lost my child's socks, gloves, shoes, dishes . . . It was almost a daily occurrence, and it might take more than a week for the item to be recovered; some items were never recovered. On more than one occasion, I went to my child's diaper was in desperate need of being changed at pick-up time. On one occasion they failed to change my child's diaper the entire day, and then refused to acknowledge that this had indeed happened. There was more than one instance were the child to caretaker ratio was not in compliance with state regulations. My child's food frequently got mixed up with other children's food at the facility. Staff rotated through so quickly we didn't really get a chance to know anyone of my child's care providers well. Some were very friendly, others wouldn't even great you at drop off or pick up. When issues arose, Issie was not good about speaking with you in person about them and working to try to resolve them. Gehring frequently gave excuses, blamed us, or lied when things were brought up that they didn't want to discuss or take responsibility for. It's unfortunate; Juneau desperately needs good quality child care. I would not recommend this facility to anyone.
