Although the center struggles with lack of resources and new teachers seem to be in and out of the establishment excessively, the staff that does remain consistent are some of the most caring individuals we have met in a daycare setting. They are well-educated on child development and show genuine concern for each child. The director of the center is very attentive and responsive to families.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

They have been terrible to their employees. New employees are in and out of the establishment. The owner/manager have been rude to our family on more then one occasion. Recently, My daughter had a fever and we got called out of work to get her, (which was understandable) the next day she was fine. I bring her in and they said she couldn't be here for another day. The owner said they were going to charge a dollar a minute until we arrived, when we got there she said since she came in today.. she now cant come in tomorrow as well. The lack of communication this daycare has is unacceptable. Prepare for rude voicemails, and new daycare teachers every other week.
