I have used this provider for less than 6 months

I was very disappointed. Some family goes to the church and used to go to daycare so we all trusted that it was a great choice.. Then shortly found out it was horrible. My son only went there and in that time he had gotten hurt almost every day. From bruises & scratches, to me picking him up with a busted lip and blood all over his clothes. Each time they had no clue what had happened. I made payments every week in cash or check because they did not accept cards, they would never give receipts. I had just paid them 400$ that they said I was "behind on" and then they said I still owed them. I asked for proof and they had no proof. They were taking my payments off of the papers they were printing to make it look like I did not pay but I had the check receipt from my bank account showing they got it. I explained to them that I was having such a hard time with them so my son would be leaving their school within the next month. A few weeks later I picked him up with blood all over him and they couldn't explain what happened. I was told different stories from different "teachers". I said that he was no longer going to be attending that "school" because they weren't being helpful in any way with information and my son kept getting hurt. They had the nerve to send me a letter in the mail saying I STILL owed them. Which, trust me, I did not. So I drove to them and gave them a check just to be done with them. The absolute worst experience I have ever had with a child care facility. Let alone a church. The daycare my son goes to now is so amazing. He hasn't gotten hurt (besides normal boy troubles) and they always communicate with me daily!
