I live near this daycare and have on several different occasions heard an employee outside yelling racial slurs at people.

To the Stressed momma Jan 24, 2019
I am the owner

 

Ok to set false accusations from the stressed momma Amanda Andrews, her daughter is 12, in daycare. My personal daughter is 7, they were playing “doctor” per the 12 yr old, and my daughter brushed her boob on the outside of her shirt. Not once did I raise her rate, I did say I would be able to work something out with school but then decides to tell me it’s not the elementary school, it’s the middle school i don’t even provide transport to. Then wanted my garage code to leave her 12 year old in my empty house because she lied about the district she lives in and the bus doesn’t go to her house. And yes, i did finally tell her the day before school, that i am not comfortable with the 13 yr old being at my home alone if she needs daycare and can’t even stay at her home by herself without daycare ???? and for the fradulent papers... she thinks she knows everything and pays cash which was late upon weeks that i never charged late fees, because i know she couldn’t afford it. But the papers It was her falsifying what district she lived in and I would NOT sign her papers! She was never happy from the beginning because of the payment, from then on she made excuses. I did not force you to come to my daycare, and after i punished my own child and told her what she did was wrong (which she had no clue, she’s 7!) she continued to take her daughter and son to my daycare so apparently it couldn’t have been too bad ????????‍?? People will try to pull you down and give a bad taste in your mouth... because they are not happy so what do they do? Try to make everyone miserable with them. Thanks to her, i learned not to just take anyone, i will weed out the parents before i accept kids. Because once you take the miserable parents, it’s going to be hell from there on out. I own 5 daycares, i must be doing something right for some. Just not to the “stressed momma” we can tell by your name, what kind of person you are. Miserable. Even your family members which i STILL watch and her daughter is 8! And she spends the night with my daughter to this day.... omg my 7 yr old must be in inappropriately touching her ????????‍?? Thank you for the read! I don’t think anyone should be able to just post on these reviews! 

And to the lady saying i was speeding, i probably way, my fault, i have now controlled my lead foot. I would never speed with kids. My time is money so i like to get to where I’m going when children are not with me. I probably had a ER at one of the daycares. But no excuse, I’m under control now

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

What can I say about this daycare. I honestly didn’t have a great experience. The first thing that had happened was my child was inappropriately touched while in the care of this daycare then the prices that had been quoted had gotten raised up then the owner wanted me falsify my paperwork about the hours they would’ve been in attendance. Then lastly my final straw you work and work around this daycares schedule to have your children picked up from school as they had a month or greater of knowing where the kids would be attending to be told last minute that the arrangements aren’t going to work with school starting the next day. After already knowing where and what times these children were getting released from school to having the knowledge that the daycare can incorporate the stops to pick up said children to know last minute this isn’t going to work after moving things around not once but twice already after getting the okay that things will be alright to pick up children to not having childcare at all is a pretty crummy thing to do to some parents that are on time paying and arranged their school schedule to fit hers when in fact it wouldn’t. I would not send you children here as not only being inappropriately touched by another child to paying her too much and not getting a stress free acknowledgement that your children will be ok after school to wanting you to fraudulently sign papers not happening. Poorly ran daycare.

Concerned Neighbor Mar 14, 2018

I witnessed the driver of the van going 40-45 mph in my 20 mph neighborhood at approximately 3:05 pm on March 14, 2018. I hope he or she did not have any daycare kids in the vehicle at the time. I also feel very lucky none of my 4 kids were outside playing at the time. I hope the daycare is safer than that, too!
