I have used this provider for less than 6 months

I would give this childcare no stars if it was a option. It smells like a dumpster in the home. There is just as many animals as there is kids. The lunch room floor is always dirty. The main room where the children are usually at is clutter where kids can barely move around. There is always so much clutter at the end of the stairs (laundry baskets , boxes ) it makes it hard to gather your children’s things together to get out the door. The owner looks like she’s on some heavy drugs. She leaves 15+ kids with a handicap helper why she’s seems to be outside smoking her cigarettes when i’ve picked up a lot of times. She has one good helper that is hardly ever there if that don’t say something. She does do things with the kids but a lot of times you find out the week of or couple days before . Communication isn’t good. Her prices are good but this is why they are good because she knows herself what her daycare is like . Defiantly do your research!

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I can’t say enough about this daycare , my child went to Miss Amanda for 2 years , she was ready for Kindergarten and when taking the assessment test she scored above and beyond where she needed to be.  Amanda has her childcare set up as a home setting which was a good adjustment for my child. I love her daily day to day schedule with the children. Amanda’s childcare is simply amazing

Amanda is amazing daycare provider. My son has gone to other babysitters in the past and no one has taught my child so much and such a little time. She is amazing with the kids and so attentive. I would highly recommend little explorers for all aged children.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Concerned if someone who is handicapped should watch 10-15 kids alone? And the other person looks as if they did drugs
