I enrolled my son at Kindercare in Hamden and I absolutely hated it.  The morning teachers were good but in the afternoons it seemed like all they had taking care of the kids were high school students.  Often I would pick my son up and there would be a few girls in the classroom and I couldn't tell who was working and who was visiting or hanging out.  At times I would walk in and the afternoon girls would be texting or doing their homework and the last straw was when I picked up my son and his pants were wet from waist to his ankles.  I was livid and he never went back again.  To top it all off I was paying $250 a week for part-time care!
