Unhappy parent Apr 05, 2015

This "daycare" is HORRIBLE!!!!! My child cried every time we pulled into the parking lot. Her "teacher" kept saying it would take time to get used to the place. Come to find out the teacher was yelling at the kids. The also let my child go with someone that was not allowed and did not notify me for over an hour. I only gave them a 1 star because I had to pick one. DO NOT GO HERE!!!
