I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My son attended Madison Free Will Baptist Daycare since he was an infant. We loved the staff there and frequently recieved updates and pictures during the week of what he was doing. Last spring, the director of the daycare that had been there forever retired and a new director was hired. Shortly after that we began experiencing issues with my son's care. We stopped recieving much communication. I was in the office frequently to address my concerns with the director herself. Schedules were listed on the interenet that were not followed at all. New staff was constantly in and out to the point that I did not even know the names of people watching my son. Over the summer of 2017 she had her daughter and her friends "working" there. When asked what the qualifications of these kids were and if they were even CPR certified she replied that she did not know. Noah was frequently picked up during that time filthy. On one occassion, I walked in and one of these teens was "watching" a room full of kids (2-3 year olds). They were all parked 2 inches from a TV while she was accross the room on Facebook and never even heard me walk in. Another time, I walked in and a very small child was sleeping in the front room not being supervised at all as all room doors were closed and no adult was present. Starting Novemeber of last year, my child had multiple injuries, including burns, bruises and a black eye, that were unexplained and undocumented. The most recent was on Oct 2, 2017. When I picked my son up from the director herself, nothing was mentioned that occured during the day. On the way home he complained about his mouth hurting so I looked at it as we got out of the car. His tooth was completely recessed and cracked in three places! I dont know what time this injury took place and if he suffered all day with it as again no one seems to know how it happened. He had to have the tooth pulled and I withdrew him from daycare. After waiting 20 mins for his records, I was never asked if something happened, was he OK, why I was upset...nothing. The only thing I got was that I owed money for his tuition. Not a great attitude for someone that is supposed to care about these children she is entrusted with. Because my son is speech delayed due to epilepsy he is unable to say what exactly happened in any of these instances and her first response is always "well, what did he say happened?" Unfortunately because here churches are exempt from DHR there is a bit of a grey area in this circumstance, which I did not know. My son will now have years to deal with this situation and this lady is still caring for children, without even an apology. There are a few teachers that we will greatly miss there and I am hoping that no other child has to deal with this... it is an awful situation for the child and parent.
