I have used this provider for more than 6 months

DO NOT TAKE YOUR KIDS HERE!! She is a horrible person. First, she piles kids in her car without car seats and no authorization to even transport. Second, she leaves the kids on the care of her son whom likes to tell the kids about bloody Mary. (My daughter is 4) which terrified her for ever.

When I questioned her about the safety and well being of my daughter she dropped off my daughter at my place of work (A huge company) with complete strangers without me knowing.

She then came and serves me with small claims staying I didn't pay a emrot fee and copay for a month she never supplied me with a receipt because she "ran out".

She is a lying manipulative worthless person. And if you love your child please please don't take them there.

They hours may be great but her care is far from.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I really enjoyed the level of care Flo gave to my boys. She fed them but one thing that concerned me is that I didn't feel she took the smaller children outside enough. Also my son made a switch of schools (the school is 5 minutes away) and missed the bus a couple times; she told me if he missed the bus again he'd get to school the best way he could! Not something I would expect a provider to tell me especially when I pay her to make sure my children are cared for. Other than that I did approve of the way my child was cared for. She feeds nutritious meals, her place is clean, but her level of professionalism and communication is rude and unprofessional in my opinion

I am Sarah, the one who wrote the previous review for Little Tots Daycare upon Mrs. Flos request. I no longer use this daycare service and have asked her to take the review dowm but here it remains. Regardless, Mrs Flo is a pretty good provider. We didnt have any issues until after I wrote that review for her...coincidence? She tried to increase my rate on the basis that my daughter is "special needs". Maybe she doesnt realize it is discrimination and illegal to do that. As far as the daycare she was providing to my daughter, it was nothing different than what she would do for any other 2 yr old. My daughter rarely got a nap and so the little time we had together in the evenings she was a basketcase. She always made me feel like I was indebted to her and she was always quick to remind me that she was "doing me a favor". No parent likes to feel like that way towards someone they are trusting with their kids. Also she is open at hours that work for people who work off hours, BUT she takes almost every holiday off. If you decide to use her, have a back up, you will need it! Her "sick" rules have a lot of grey area and you end up again feeling indebted to her when you bring your child who the doctor has deemed no longer contagious to daycare because, lets face it, you have to work to pay her! As far as basic daycare, she fits the bill. She feeds the kids well and takes them on trips. Mrs Flo isnt a bad person at all, hard to communicate with and seems to have a lot of drama with some of the other parents. I read the other review about the scary stories and since my daughter doesnt talk I cant speak to any truth about it. It is a little weird her grown son helps with the daycare but my daughter gravitated to him and he was never the source of any drama for us. He seems to be the level head of the bunch. All and all, this daycare fit my need when I needed it but I wouldnt go back if it was free to me.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My daughter is 2 years old and has been with a part of Little Tots Daycare for a year now, and I couldn't be happier. I don't have to worry about her when she is with Ms. Flo. They are going out on fun field trips and learning new things on a weekly basis. My daughter is in Physical and Speech Therapy, and Ms. Flo is always willing to help me work towards the goals that the therapist have set up for us, in which has recently included learning lots of new sign language signs and exercises to help my daughter learn to walk. It has been a big undertaking, but Ms. Flo has been right there to support us and keep things consistent for her. I no longer receive assistance paying for daycare and since I work full-time~ this was a big worry for me. Ms. Flo was happy to help me out, and we settled on a much lower flat rate that I was facing paying every month. She expects you to pay your bill on time, like any other business, but has always been reasonable and flexible. I have gone through my fair share of daycare providers in the last few years, but I feel like I hit the jackpot when I found Little Tots Daycare & Preschool, and I plan on giving her my business for as I have the need. It is so nice to see the smile on my daughters face when I drop her off for the day, it brings peace to my heart and that to me is priceless.

We believe every child is a learner, and LTDP is there to help a child in his/her education. We don't teach or tell scary stories. We strive to communicate positive to all parents who entered in the daycare. Nicole refused to pay for daycare service and accrued late fee and brought a sick child to daycare too many times. I had to take her to court for nonpayments, and it was successful. We can't try to hurt individual to have your way. We have a policy keep children at home when they are sick. I made several called to the family, but refused to pick up sick child. I waited until the parent came at the front entrance where she worked and I stated while I was there. I mentioned no one came to pick up her sick child after I made several calls to the family. I have to protect the safety of other children at the daycare. Children are getting nutrition meals at LTDP. My staff and I are a positive role model for the children at LTDP and we love our job.

If I could rate (negative) I would, 1 star for the quack of a day care provider is way too high. "Flo" is a horrible provider. My granddaughter attended there and would literally come home with horror stories. Flo leaves the kids with her assistant (son) who is now finally Star certified but still cannot be alone with all the the kids. Anyhow, Flo leaves him with the kids. This past week Jessie told my 3 year old granddaughter all about BLOODY MARY and how Mary would come out of the mirrors and scratch her until she bleeds. My granddaughter went into detail about it all, including Mary had black hair, and black eyes, really long finger nails to scratch you with and she is very dangerous, etc. NOTHING a 3 year old should have been told. When Flo was confronted she blamed it on some older kids that are in the house, not her adult son. Even though I am certain that is a lie, it still makes no difference, obviously for that detail to be given by a 3 year old someone spent a long time telling her.. where was the provider or her assistant even if it were another kid. Why were they not there to stop it... because it WAS her son (her assistant) and she wasn't even in the house.

So, the day following her being confronted she decided to tell my daugthter that she should look for a new day care for my granddaugher because she isn't disciplined enough. That same day (a few hours later) she took my granddaughter to my daughter's place of employment while she was on the clock working (large retail store) and walked in and left my granddaughter there.

This lady is whacked and her license should be revoked. Not to mention that her house is kind of trashy, the steps are falling apart, and the appearance is YUCK.

I could go on forever what I was told that happens behind that day cares wall. I reported it to CPS and the Licensor.... I will let them deal with it.

By the way.. funny how she has only been in business for 2 years and already has a rap sheet of actual verified charges.. I can only imagine how many have slide through the cracks...For the best interest and welfare of all children Washington state needs to SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN!!!
