I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I am very pleased with the service that I have received. My children love attending this center and they don't want to leave when I go to pick them up. They have learned how to read since they have been here and are always excited to come back. The meals are included with the rate and compared to other centers, the rate is very affordable. The Director is very personable and has a genuine love for the children. It is a Christian environment and the staff is amazing. A friend told me about this place, and I'm glad that I went to see it for myself. This place is a blessing to my children.

Raspberry children's center is not a place to bring your child. The director is very unorganize and very unprofessional, she is never in the center always gone. Director talks bad about parents, tells parents personal business to other parents. Parents are paying to much in tuition and kids are feed very small portion of food. Children never gets second on food they are always asking for more, kids are eating the same lunch twice in one week. The director harassed parents for tuition payments. Staffing is wonderful with children. The center is not Christian center as she claims it is that place is hell. I DO NOT RECOMMEND anyone to take their child there. STAY AWAY...
