I have used this provider for less than 6 months

This facility is a disaster, the director only is interested in money... i had my 2 year old daughter who needs speech therapy and the director keept the files for twoo weeks and di not allow them ( therapist) take back. the teacher always said that my daugther ate all food when i knew she did the beginnings they promises that have a teacher expert in the potty training and is a big lie...i do not recomend this facility.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I was very happy in the beginning but unfortunately everything faded with time. I feel the Director is strictly in the business for the money, she's rude and unprofessional. They have a great teacher for the younger toddlers which is probably the main reason I stayed there for so long nonetheless there's a revolving door with the remaining staff. They have little daily logs which they lie in so I don't understand why even give the parent the log. The vibe in the daycare is just so awkward, almost like they're scared to say the wrong thing. My son learned a lot while being there but his behavior was not the best and he cried every single day when I dropped him off. The smell of bleach is also unbearable.

They definitely undelivered what they promised. They promised full cooperation during potty training, they didn't pull through. They only potty trained half the day and gave up the rest of the day. AND I highly doubt they ever taught them how to brush their teeth...which is fine because I can teach him but then why request the supplies and promise that it will be done.

It wasn't a horrible daycare but truly was a disappointment.

upset parent Nov 18, 2013

My child has been attending Play and Read academy for the last year or so. The director at this facility is very difficult to have a conversation with. She does not care about the wellbeing of the children. She is only interested in personal gain (money). I feel that if you are in a field that you work with children that you should have a interest in the well-being of the children. My child is low in weight and when I asked if he was eating she told me “Yes! He eats all of his food” come to find out he was not eating any of food. They will give extra milk because that is what he like’s. When I took my child to his pediatrician; she informs me that he has a high amount of Vitamin D; which can cause kidney disease and lymphoma. I also feel that facility does not educate the children. If your family only speaks English please do not enroll them in this school. None of the teachers speak English. There are also times when my child comes home with bumps and burses. Speaking as a concern parent this is not the facility to enroll your child.
