About the Provider

Description: At J-Bear CDC, we feel that each child has the potential to reach maximum self-growth. To achieve this, a child must have a variety of experiences in order to enhance his/her natural capabilities. We strive to provide a quality child development center and service for our community. Our program is geared toward encouraging the natural curiosity of children and directing it toward productive developmental skills. This gives them an awareness of their own feelings and of the right to express those feelings. We also foster the development of creativity, self-confidence, and self-discipline.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

If I could give 0 I would. The director Wendy is condescending, told me she’s doing me a favor getting my daughter in so quickly. I gave her the opportunity to say they have no spots available but she insisted there was room but I shouldn’t “screw her over”. My daughter has food allergies to egg and they thought that meant butter? They were irritated to accommodate my questions for her allergens in their food so I could supply substitutes. Wendy said “she has a thousand allergies and can’t eat anything”. She has one major allergen that’s hidden in a lot of food. I asked if a list of foods contain the egg and it was an inconvenience to read labels. My daughter has cloth diapers and when asked they said they don’t do cloth so she has to wear underwear. She wet herself all day and through 2 pairs of shoes. Instead of asking for more shoes they requested someone pick her up for the day because they must have been tired of dealing with her for ONE day. When my husband went to collect her stuff they didn’t hesitate to hand it over and get rid of her in the center. The laziest people to ever run a child care center. If you love your kids and want them to be safe DO NOT send them here. Went to a different daycare the next day and they were HAPPY to accommodate the allergens, cloth, and accept my daughter into their class with no judgments and no condescending remarks. Wendy is a trash human who does not deserve to work with children.

DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN HERE. I have never dealt with a more unprofessional business in my life. There is a severe lack of communication. We were given no information as to our child’s meals, drinks, anything. She came home crying hysterically every day, and our child is not a cryer. She was always extremely thirsty upon picking her up. She would have bruises to which no explanation could be provided. Only that “things happen with 2 year olds”. Wendy (the “director” with the Karen haircut) called me disrespectful when I explained our concerns and provided a two weeks notice, as we are sending our daughter to another daycare. Then about two minutes later messaged me in the app and told me that they were terminating care as of that day, and that I needed to come pick her up. Grossly unprofessional and I would absolutely never leave a child under their care.

WOULD NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN HERE AGAIN!!! For a 4 star daycare the staffs behavior is quite baffling. My child came home multiple times with bruises and telling me she was being hit. Of course the staff acts like they know absolutely nothing about It, couldn't even tell me what my child was being offered to eat or drink on the daily. And definitely did not follow dietary restrictions i had set for my child. The director Wendy is a JOKE, has no regard to how shitty the establishment is and she's NEVER there and when she is she could care less about parental concerns for their child. They also terminated my child's care with no heads up. Definitely WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!!! Keep children safe don't send them here!
