I have used this provider for less than 6 months

I was in tremendous need of immediate full-time care and I ultimately ended up going to Little Red Hen as a last resort. The facility is not clean, personal hygiene practices are subpar and the classrooms are not set up for an environment conducive to learning. I complained often and finally got tired and pulled my son out. His pull ups would be soaked and full on several occasions of me picking him up. It was not a comfortable feeling, so as a mother, I did what was best for him. I mentioned it to management on several occasions and unfortunately nothing was done about the level of uncleanliness, nor the fact that parents do not wash their children's hands at drop off. I do not recommend this place to anyone. It is horrible and nor worth $128 a week.

As an employee of this center, I have seen the worse care I have ever experienced throughout the many childcare centers I have worked in (I'm a military spouse, so we move often). If you are considering this center, please ask to see the playgrounds. The kids come up to me often presenting broken glass they have found. Please also ask to see the credentials for the employees. 90% of them have no credentials, and therefore no business working with children. In fact, ask to see CPR Certifications on the employees. Same situation. The director is incompetent and the teachers consistently have more children than they are legally able to have. This place is pathetic!
