Single mother , stolen from Jul 28, 2019
I have used this provider for less than 6 months

First week cancelled on my 2 x ,
When I arrived at her home Monday morning she has her " assistant " greet me along with 5 dogs she did not make me aware of, she was not there to greet me , check any records of even review the physical or vaccinations. I was very uncomfortable that one person was giving care to 7 children alone. She talked for about 25 minutes about herself and did not explain anything just took the money and paperwork . And sat while the children roamed around I could hear a baby crying she said she was almost a year old and " she'll be fine " my kids were already getting into the kitchen closets and under the sink with chemicals . She assured me the owner " janelle would be back any minute and she was driving kids to summer ec because it's "free and they keep the kids all day" and had to do laundry because it was "piling up" i waited around as long as I could but no Janelle as I was getting into my car she walked right past me and went inside didn't even look at me or wonder who was in the driveway. It all didn't sit well with me.
I paid 140 dollars for 2 children for 2 days, at first they told me one child was 140 a full week she has texted me and said 140 would be okay for 2 for half a week. That changed when I arrived to 35 dollars per child per day . I explained I could not afford that as I am a single mother with no family or friends in the area and my work is appointment based and very scattered, until I become on salary once I was running a project . A single mothers not for profit resource center, shelter and runaway home .
After 20 minutes "assistant" me to come pick up my son (4) because his behavior wasn't good, that wasn't a problem I went and I picked him up and told her I wanted both of my children, they told me I would not get a refund for the day even thought he was there 20 minutes. I let my other son (1) stay. She told me she would not refund me for that day, even though I explained I needed childcare for both and not one child . I paid for the week in advance, When I arrived at the facility I picked up my son who is four He told me he slapped the daycare worker because she was "screaming in his face". They told me they cannot have difficult children because there not allowed to punish , use time out or use and disciplinary measures . I again explained I need childcare for 2 children not one and they said you won't be refunded , I brought my youngest son in to collect his brother, and they said he's so cute bring him instead we can't do tommorow so come Friday, I called Thursday to ask them if they were all set for Friday I I had a very important meeting . I was told for a second Friday in a row they could not take my children, because Wednesday the Cops and CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES , were at there home so Friday was out. They didn't have enough staff because the owner had to be in COUNTY COURT on Friday . I told them it sounded like they had alot going on and I'd collect my money Monday morning 70.00 for the Friday they cancelled . In which Janelle responded to me so you don't need child care ? I said no I do not ( I would never leave my children with someone who thinks " oh they'll be fine" (crying in a dark room alone in a cot ) it was a small cramped place that is not child proofed , no restraints or baby gates anywhere to be seen. No reasoning to why child services and Police were there . She responded and said you pulled the children out. Your not getting your money , long story short she cancelled on my and decided she'd keep my money .

Happy parent Jan 12, 2018
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

She is amazing with my children. She keeps myself and my husband updated all day everyday with pictures and videos. She does lots of arts and crafts with the children, lots of outdoor play when able to. She is absolutely amazing.
