This center was HORRIBLE. I went there one time and all the doors were locked. This was in the middle of the day and all the kids were napping. Isn't that against the law?? EVERY time I just showed up unexpectedly my daughter and her classmates were strapped into these chairs (high chairs that you strap to a regular chair). The chairs were not strapped to a chair they were on the floor. My daughter was spotless ever day, no paint, markers, dirt or food. Children get dirty when they play and eat!! Why wasn't my daughter showing signs of play? She never brought anything home (papers or projects). I pulled inot the driveway and my daughter started crying and screaming histerically NO MOMMY NOOOO!! Needless to say she no longer attends this school. She absolutely loves her school now:)
