I pulled my daughter out after attending this school for only a week. I should have listened to these reviews! Don't be fooled by the new building or hi-tech security features. What should be a priority is having your child's needs met! My child had a high fever that was not noticed by any staff members all day long. I picked her up and she was burning up. I do not know how any adult could not have realized she was ill: bright red cheeks, covered in sweat, and mucus coming from her nose. Also, heat was radiating off of her! By the time I picked her up it was too late to bring her to the Dr. If they had taken her temp and called me sooner I could have gotten her in to the doctor that same day, and she would have began treatment for PNEUMONIA, tonsillitis, and a double ear infection much sooner. Her medical treatment was delayed due to unsatisfactory care at this school. I went to talk to the owner today and she was more concerned with "if they had put a note in the computer" and "why hadn't I called her sooner/I should have given her notice instead of just showing up to talk to her." How about if my child is okay?!?! How about an apology?!?! And how about not trying to intimidate me against filing a report with DSS?!?! Other concerns I had: always hungry/thirsty when I picked her up. She was always just "sitting around" when I picked her up. No toys/activities when I picked her up - ever! For a two year old; that is NOT developmentally appropriate. She needs to play and interact with her peers, not sit around and wait for me from 4:00 on! It was just a sad sad situation. She will be going elsewhere starting on Mon and I couldn't be happier with my decision to pull her out! I'm a teacher, so please trust my judgement here. I would not recommend this facility to anyone! Feel free to contact me for more info!

After hearing many mixed reviews of this daycare, I decided to at least give it a try. After attending only 3 days there, my husband and I decided to pull my child from attendance. He continuously came home extremely thirsty and would drink over an entire cup of water as soon as we got home (this is not normal for him!). Also, we did not care for the attitudes of those in charge of the place. They claim to be a "Christian" daycare, but that is certainly not how they conduct themselves. Another issue we had was with the lack of engagement between the teachers and the students every time we dropped off or picked up my child. They always seemed to be just standing around. I have also spoken with several women who have previously worked at the place and they encouraged me to take my child anywhere but there. Luckily, we have now found a new daycare that we are very happy with!
