Magic Moments was in business over 25 years. My shildren went there and also my grandchildren. Loved all the staff and owners. One owner retired to Florida and the other opened her own center Shore Kidz. My other grandchildren now go there. They have learned so much. I always recommed Shore Kidz to everyone.

My child goes to Shore Kidz. The staff has been nothing but polite and courteous to my sons' needs, and I have no concerns about his safety. The door stays locked at all times and you must be buzzed in to drop off and pick up your child. He stays on a normal nap and eating schedule, along with appropriate playtime ect. I get a report when I pick him up that shows how his day went and what times he slept, ate, and drank. I would absolutely recommend this center.

Dont bring your child here! I will never go back! The owner Diane Jurgensen used to have a daycare called magic moments, look at the reviews from there! A tv fell on a child! So she opens a new center with a new name after the other one has a horrible reputation, well NOTHING CHANGED! I was nervous bringing my children there, and I was very unhappy with the way the daycare was run. The staff is untrained and underpaid and the children are yelled at and thrown in time outs for long periods of time. The floors are hard tile with a small section of carpet. The schedules are not followed there is no routine or order.The kids are always running wild and the teachers are yelling to sit down and watch tv. Anyone can walk in anytime, and kids are always running out of their classrooms just to be dragged back in. I was DISGUSTED to see a teacher kiss a child on the lips when saying goodbye. The babies temperature is taken rectally, and thermometer is left on dirty counter. I dont even use a rectal thermometer on my child and I certainly do not want anyone else doing it! My kids were sent home with scratches and bite marks from the other kids several times. Its not worth going to the cheapest day care around!
