I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Horrid place, the owner treats her employees like trash and makes them come to work whenever they are sick to the point of puking. She leaves kids sit in clothes all day if the wet themselves for "punishment". Overall a terrible place to have watch your child and a horrible person to be around.
