Have people working in there with no cpr classes, no drug test, serve the kids expired food, also physically punishes the children and are unnecessarily mean to the children there. Wouldn’t recommend it at ALL !

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

On 7/13/16, they left a 3-year old at a local zoo and did not realize she was missing for well over an hour. Then, they did not report the incident to the child's parents, and continued to lie about there ever being an issue. The parents found out through the older sibling and Facebook. We are hoping for criminal charges soon!

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

My 1 year old daughter was mugged at this daycare facility. She went in on her first day with her birthday earrings on and came out 4 hours later without them. These earrings were had screw on backs, and she does not have the dexterity to remove them herself ... she is just learning to walk. The staff there was completely rude, yelled at my wife and I who were trying to resolve the issue (attempting to intimidate us into leaving without a proper resolution of the matter), and kicked us out of the facility rather than work with us. We have filed a police report and are awaiting the outcome of the investigation.
