I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

I toured this place to possibly put my daughter here for daycare. All i can say is RUN. Do not trust these people with your children. Within the 20 minutes i was there i Heard a teacher yelling at a child who couldn’t have been more than a year old. I saw kids left unattended in a class with no lights on. and it was all around just a dirty environment. After i left i went home and I read the dhs files, facebook reviews and even saw MANY face book posts about this place. I cannot believe how bad it was. Seriously.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

They are rude, completely unprofessional and find any reason to send them home. They terminated my kid saying the reason why is a "post that I made" when all I did was comment on someone else's post who was asking about recommendations. All I said was I don't recommend

I love the atmosphere. You walk in its so colorful, clean & everyone is friendly! My sons teacher has lessons planned each day for different times of the day. I love that I'm not just paying someone to babysit my child, but that he is being able to learn and not fall behind. He loves his friends & his teachers. A mom could not ask for more :)
