Terrific,Great, family place Sep 14, 2017
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My child started at smileyfaces at the age of 4 Pre-K they have been such an incredible help to us. Through all those years of after school and summercamp my child has now age out.We will love to thank Mrs. Garcia and the entire staff through all the years. I read the previously comment about this program and I find it so funny that this program has been around for 24 years and only one person has complain. I could tell you from the bottom of my heart the best program is the biggest largest best program in Yonkers.

I give this company one star because they are the absolute worse! I have never been around people who are so unprofessional and just rude. The one year that I have taken my child to Smiley faces the directors Caridad Garcia and Marino Garcia were never around when I as a parent had a question or concern. My child was around staff members who didnt really care much about the children and their homework but cared more about getting paid, as well as the Garcias. This family owned company treated me and my child unfairly. For a company that has been around for more than "17" years you would think they will have a little bit more respect for the parents, children and staff members. My mistake was allowing these people to make me feel comfortable and safe that my child was in great hands but I was told by one of the staff members that they do not follow proper protocol and procedures. I was also told that there was paperwork that was falsely written just to make themselves feel like they got the job done. I highly encourage that you do your research, speak to the staff members about how they feel about the company and most importantly talk to the parents to see how they "like" the program because I was not a happy person coming into a building to a bunch of people who had a nasty attitude. 17 years of business and you don't love what you do? Then you're just doing it for the money. If it were my company and I loved what i do, i would be there ALL the time and treat everyone with RESPECT! That's all.
