About the Provider

Description: Thank you for your interest in our childcare program. The primary objective of our school is to help your child develop a positive attitude toward him/herself and toward everything associated with learning. It is not our goal to rush young children into acquiring academic knowledge. Each child is gently guided into learning what he/she can do to accept him/herself and to take pride in and derive satisfaction from personal achievements. We want to help build a creative foundation for a lifetime of learning within your child. Characteristics such as self-confidence, interdependence, curiosity, persistence, initiative and the ability to concentrate and organize will be developed.

I will never EVER recommend this establishment (I can't even in good conscience call this place a daycare because they don't CARE). My experience with Learning Safari has been short, but it only took that long to figure out what a truly horrible place this is.

Kim (owner) only cares about the bottom line: her profit. Randy, who "runs" the place, is a joke. There is not one person there who, other than having kids of their own, is remotely qualified to be a caregiver. And, trust me, having one or two of your own kids is a million times different than taking care of 20+.

Other daycare centers in the area require their employees to have degrees in Early Childhood Education, be licensed, or have experience taking care of groups of rowdy 3 year olds. Not Learning Safari! Only requirement: a pulse. And they also employ a lot of their "students'" mothers. Because mothers won't pull their children out of that daycare if they are also getting a paycheck from it.

The workers there are glorified babysitters as there's hardly any real teaching going on (unless you want your child to be taught not to wash their hands after they go to the bathroom. Because they only are made to wash after going #2, which has got to be at least one health code violation).

Finally, because they don't require any education or licensing, these mother/workers don't know how to teach. Yelling at a child, especially a 2 or 3 year old, to sit down and be quiet is not the way to handle them. Don't blame parents for having a child who won't sleep during nap time when you give them sugar at lunch and let them spend their time outside in timeout instead of running off their energy.

I would never send my child here. I would never send my worst enemy's child here.

P.S. I have it on good authority that the reviews on their Facebook page are from workers or friends of workers, and not legit.
