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.

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!
