I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Update: I sued Allison Joseph, the owner of Kids R Us in Troy’s small claims court for the return of my daycare deposit and missing daycare items. She still haven’t made good on the judgement and pay back my deposit to me or missing daycare items. I went back to the courts and let them know. I then went to the city clerk office to put it on file. This is now on her credit report and also if she goes to buy a house in her county she will have to satisfy the judgement before doing so as well. Base on my experience with her Allison Joseph I would not trust her with a dog. And she still haven’t made good to follow the judges order and pay me back my deposit.

This may happen to you as well moms out there so be ware and find another provider.

I've recently enrolled my child to kidz r us. The experience has been so relieving and comfortable. My son is welcomed every morning and the transition has been wonderful. Ms. Allison is warm, caring and understanding. I look forward to my watching my son grow while in her care. I do recommend her home center.

Today I had to pull my 2 year old son from Kids R US group daycare because of how he would react to being dropped off at the daycare with the owner Allison Joseph. Need say my son is non verbal and cannot communicate like other children to say what is happening at her daycare but today once I pulled up to her red door he opened his eyes wide open and frantically shocked his head "NO". He then fell out on the floor and started to whimper. It's been over a month now and he still hasn't warmed up to her and gets anxiety at the sight of her house. I told her today on my arrival to pick him up that I will have to pull him from her daycare because of his reaction to her EVERY time I go to drop him off. She said I couldn't get my security deposit back and she cannot find his sippy cup or his change of clothes or extra diapers and wipes. I am appalled by that and will be filing a complaint against her. I do not recommend this home daycare to any mother out there because of how she is. I work hard to pay the cost of my daycare out my pocket and provide for my child. For her to not return my deposit even though my child is not full time anymore and only a drop in. To make matters worst she gave me back no diapers, wipes, sippy cup or change of outfit. She is always out of sync and overwhelmed every time during pick up. Parents: do not trust this woman with your child.
