Be careful Jan 28, 2017

Please don't send your children to this daycare. A Few years ago she neglected my children horribly by having them sitting down all day long, segregating them because of their ethnicity, leaving them without supervision, not feeding them- even when you were asked to bring packs of food every week. I fell in love when I saw their pictures on the website but it was only a cover that carries tears of working parents like me that trusted her without knowing what she does to the children. The owner cares about the money and has no sympathy for the little ones.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Couldn't be worse! Last year my son was in one of the former daycare locations this owner ran and while the owner painted a wonderful picture of what it was like there, it was the complete opposite. They only had 1 teacher there with 3 infants (one being mine) and 5 toddlers. They wound up getting shut down. I went to pick up my son one night and the teacher, whom I loved, was crying while holding him. She was blindsided too. The state officials came in mentioning how several of the violations were never taken care of, and they found falsified documents created by the owner, some lying about the teacher's medical info, and even worse, others lying about the children’s ages so that additional teachers didn’t need to be hired!!! They were immediately shut down until further notice. I was a wreck. The owner waited 3 days (3 DAYS!!!) before even reaching out to me, but never explained, just played the victim. I scrambled and very luckily found a larger, albeit more expensive, Childcare Center.

I would not recommend any of grace's facilities. She is not concerned with your child's well being. In 6 months I had so many cocerns I decided to take a voice recorder hidden in a bag to investigate my suspicions. I discovered my child was sat in a highchair most of the day, even overheard the staff discussing not taking her out to lay down because they didn't want to deal with her. Now I know why they had diaper rash much higher than expected because they were kept upright for hours a day in a high chair. In addition to the rash I picked them up several times and had to change their butt myself because it was obvious it had not been do e for hours. Do yourself a favor and look up the violations on her daycares as well, there are plenty
