unhappy mother Feb 24, 2017
I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Out of the 9 hours my child was there they only changed his diaper 3 times. My baby pees a lot and needs changing at home at least once every hour. I started keeping up with how many diapers that were being used and its only 3 a day. Also my baby had cuts and bite marks. I stayed at the school for an hour one day and they kids were all standing on the tables.

My daughter received numerous injuries at this daycare with the last being a dislocated elbow which was also her last day to attend. The doors do not lock, there are no cameras and all potty trainers use one small training potty with no running water. NOT SAFE!
