I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Director is rude, snotty, and accuses children and picks or specific children to become a target to be bullied by the director and teachers. No licenses either! Says specific kids are racist, director is NEVER there at 5:30a.m., raised the pricing from living costs and not give any of that to the supplies or church, makes parents and infants stand out in the cold temps in the winter for more than 7 minutes, tries to tell the parents how to raise their kid/s, STRAIGHT UP NEEDS REPLACED AND NEW TEACHERS ALL WITH LICENSES! Makes parents late for work and also, only care about money and expects each age group to be quiet ALL DAY!!!!! BLAMES KIDS for things that has never happened and denies physical acts on children when the teachers don't pay attention!

They have made it impossible for parents to work a full time job and use this daycare. The admin is rude, tells at the parents in front of their children and is dishonest.
