I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I read the reviews before selecting this center, but I also know how some people can be when it comes time to make payments and feeling as if they shouldn't have to pay. So I toured the center and spoke with several teachers. The place was not nasty as the comments say. It was very busy as expected it should be. I have enjoyed our time there. I can tell my child is very loved and cared for. Susan is a very busy person as I can see. Any issue that I have had (which was only one and that being due to another parent) was on top of it. I thought I would give my review on here since I enrolled my child there after reading 2 bad reviews. My child is very well taken care of and LOVES it there.

Unfortunately, read this review and gave it a try anyway. Well, its spot on. Absolutely no instruction/curriculum, and when you can find Susan or Jill, its always an excuse for the current problem. Found my kid running around with no pants on after I arrived "early" to pick him up.. I have had to ask about supplies needed nearly everyday, but I'm told nothing is needed until my kid runs out of milk, diapers, wipes, etc, and either uses someone else's or has NONE. I've had to direct kids to go back in their respective classrooms because their teachers had no idea the kid had left the room. Can't wait to get out!

This place is disgusting, nasty, and very unsanitary. The place is very on organized. You can NEVER find Susan or Jill who run the place when you need them. If you have an infant and take them there beware of downright negligence.
