Unpaid Former Employee May 31, 2016
I am an employee

The owner is definitely a Crook. She refused to pay me for 6 hrs if work at 8.50 per hour. Less than 50.00... Avoid this center by all means. Owner is money hungry. May karma over take her swiftly.

As a parent who is so concerned about the care given to their child why would you go on here spouting comments like this, it makes you sound racist. Why are CAPS children bad, because they happen to qualify for help from the state.....bad things happen to the best people that can cause hardships for the family. It is very offensive to hear someone say such things. As for this school the owner works very hard to give the best care to the children, and unfortunately when she has to spend time in court fighting for payment from many families who refuse to pay for services....is the child care providers time less valuable than yours when you go to work. They would not be able to work without good child care. As for security system issues, the school has security systems that require parents to use a code to enter the school keeping unwanted people out. They also have a fingerprint system. As for extra curricular things such as dance classes and gymnastics, she has offered such classes, but it doesn't make sense to provide such things if the interest is not there, it costs money to pay instructors. Also the school does have a swimming pool on site but the owner does not feel comfortable opening it with many children who do not know how to swim, there is a lot of liability there. A lot of money was spent to get the pool running but it is her choice to not open it. No school should be required to offer freebies! I would have no problem sending my child to this school...or my grandchildren for that matter.

My first experience with daycare was at this location. The staff made it a very easy transition for me and my 2yr. Old. I am thankful we started with this school. It is like a hometown feeling where everyone knows you and your child. When I pick up my girl in the evening she doesn't want to leave. THAT tells me all I need to know about the quality of happy loving care she receives at Woodbridge. I don't rate a place on being perfect on every area, I rate a place by the smile on my kids face and the excitement of going to school every day. As a mom, this tells me what I need to know. We are happy with Woodbridge and would highly recommend it for any family.

First I would like to say, Please come by our center for your own opinion. MOST negative reviews in a childcare center are based upon, disgruntled employees or parents who have not paid. I welcome any comments from anyone, but I am not the kind of person to hide behind a fictional name on a computer. If someone is dissatisfied with something in any business, you should be able to tell that business in your own words face to face, instead of slandering someone, which in fact is illegal. Thanks so much and I look forward to your visit.
Sincerely, Lisa Taylor

Oh and regards to the first comment on here..I think that crooked owner got a hold of this site!!! That wonderful security door with the key hasn't worked right for me ince day one...I've yet to see a finger print scanner...I haven't seen not one leotard float through that center!! Either someone is reviewing the wrong center or the owners been busy!!

DONT GO HERE!!! The owner is a crook and doesnt run her center properly.i also noticed on her review from the state..you can find this at www.decal.ga.gov.... that she says she doesn't do pick ups from school but picked my child up daily!!! Her review speaks for itself!! Would probably be an ok center if it wasn't for the owner!

First let me just say, I love the staff at Woodbridge. You walk in the door and feel welcome. If someone is in the office at the time you enter or leave there is always a warm and friendly hello or goodbye. My daughter can't wait for summer time because they filled the pool a few weeks ago and it seems all the kids in her class saw it. I currently have a child in the infant room and the pre-K room. I love the teach your baby to read program they do and the checkout slips that the teacher's write daily. I have an idea what to ask about daily and I have an idea of how it went. I know when my kids were fed and how they slept daily. Having to have kids in care is hard for some, including me, and it makes me feel better to know how things went for them. Also, before I forget my daughter loves gymnastics time and wants to wear leotards because she's seen some of the girls with them. I love it. I love knowing my kids are in a great environment during the time I am not with them. Oh and also I love the double door lock system and the key cards, the sign in program, and the key-pad door. Safety seems important to them. I overheard someone in the office say that they are going to do a fingerprint system on their check in an out box we use at the front. Talk about secure! The only complaint is that it reminds me of the things I need to do each time I type in my code, which really is a good thing because I do forget, but it takes a minute. Thank you for taking such good care of my kids. I love you guys!

I dont know where to begin, if you want to dump your child into a school with a group of CAPS children, then this is the school for you. The owner is very unorganized, overcharged me as a paying parent versus the government assisted children. Promised a great deal of things video camera access, swimming pool, my baby can read, theatre performances and much more. I sat back and wondered what was our money going towards. She has a staff member that has a criminal records, her finances and ordinances with the county are not in order and she treats her staff rather poorly. The baby room is a very unhygenic place for a baby and there is no interaction with the children. Its simply an income and as a parent I belive it is truly uneceptable. Overall, this daycare is a sinking ship.
