We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.

RUN! May 27, 2014

Frequently only learned about "incidents" from my child on the way home. When questioned the next morning, staff would brush it off. Director's own son targeted & picked on my child, and it took weeks of repeated discussions before she intervened at all. My child would beg not to go to "school". They talk a good talk, but DO NOT send your child here!

I agree with the first comment. Basically you get what you pay for. My son had never had a rash before and is potty training he was at Serenity Childcare for seven hours and left with a blistering rash on his bottom. They put on a good holy front but that's all talk. If you love your child more than you love yourself and you want to be comfortable about leaving them everyday especially when they can't speak for themselves, DON'T GO HERE!

Too many incidents happen here and the staff can not explain why your child was hurt.
