concerned mom Sep 22, 2016
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Magnolia Ridge does not stand on strong values for smoking. My child was only there for a week and a half and I saw three different employees smoking directly in front of the front entrance and the exit to the outside from the infant room. I raise my child in a smoke free home, so paying someone to take care of my child that smokes was definitely something I was not comfortable with. When I approached the director of Magnolia Ridge about my insecurities of the employees smoking during working hours, she told me to not to worry so much as a first time mom. She told me that each employee “washes up good, changes their shirt and is supposed to smoke by the dumpster outside” –because THAT would make me feel so much better about the situation. Well, I live in close proximity to the child care center, and I know that each employee doesn’t change their shirt for the multiple times they go outside to smoke during the day. The fact that this center isn’t a smoke free facility in 2016 is ridiculous. I’m guess I’m just a naïve first time mom, but I would only assume that should be a standard for all child care in today’s world. When I removed my child from the center to a more creditable center (again, only after a week and a half of my child being there), there was absolutely no follow up from the director to address why we were leaving. I have driven by the center on my way home and several occasions, I see the director smoking right side the front entrance herself. Additionally, they have no concern for security, anyone can walk in and out of the front door and anyone can take your child without them knowing. Avoid this place at all cost and find somewhere else.
