I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Although I found a few of the staff very pleasant I couldn't get the past the fact that on more then one occasion when I went to pick up my child she has someone else's pacifier. I spoke to the teacher that was in the room about it and she informed me that sometimes when they cant find the child pacifier that they wash and use another child's...when i looked for only a moment in her assigned crib I found it right away. She was sick non stop and even developed croup. I understand that children in child care will get sick due to everyone's germs but that likelihood was only increased the more she was given someone else's pacifier. When I came in for a second time and found her once again with someone else's pacifier I knew right away that I had to remove her from the center. She was only 2 1/2 months old and her tiny immune system couldn't handle their carelessness.

My child was neglected at Pleasant Prairie Renaissance School.

She would go several hours without a diaper change.  She was regularly sent home with clothing that she was allowed to soil through.  Oral and written feeding instructions were ignored by the staff.  Articles of clothing were lost.  The ratio of one worker to four children was not regularly followed, from what I witnessed.  Almost any time I had to pick her up between 4 and 6 pm, I found her being pushed around in a cart with five other bored looking children by a single worker. 
Security was also a concern.  The building is set up so that anyone can walk into the building, but a pin needs to be entered into a second door to access the children's rooms.  The director's office has doors that open to both the entry room (unsecured side) and the children's rooms (secured side).  The the evenings, on multiple occasions, I witnessed both director's doors left open and unattended. 
I escalated to the director, and I saw improvement in some areas for a single day.  By the end of the week following my escalation to the director, I confronted the director, and she was surprised and unaware that my complaints were ignored-- even though she had promised me that she would be checking on the status daily.  I enrolled my child in a different facility the following week.
