I have used this provider for less than 6 months

At first I thought things were great, then some red flags started coming up. My son developed severe diaper rash from not being changed in a timely manner. I would overhear the teacher yelling at the kids from outside the door. The school did an assessment indicating my child is severely delayed. I knew this wasn't true. I was told he had to have a screening by the state or withdraw immediately. I complied and the state worker said my child was 100% normal and healthy. She suggested reporting the school's conduct to the Early Learning Coalition. I didn't do that and returned to the school. I was just informed our spot was not held while we went on a long vacation. The director told me the spot would be held and never asked for a deposit or indicated he may not be able to return as discussed multiple times. How can you "elect not to pay a deposit you were never asked for it billed for?"This kind of unprofessional behavior makes it impossible to ever go back there.
