I am an employee

1 Star for a reason. Do NOT work here, do NOT let you child attend here. Kids are left out of ratio daily, teachers are physically and verbally abusive. Cussing infront of and to the children. Children purposely fed items their parents have listed as allergies. Directors don’t care about employees and are often not around. Babies are teased by the bottle repeatedly pulled away from them and not fed.
