This center can not keep teachers. The teachers constantly feel like they have no support from the admin office because they bring problems to the admin and are told “well that’s part of being at a daycare”. They are extremely unprofessional.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

We were recommended to St.Johns by many people who used them years ago. I am confident in saying that the standards provided years ago no longer exist. We have been there for 1 year. Our child has had 8+ different teachers in two classrooms due to teacher turn over. She has come home with fire any bites since may and they have not taken appropriate action to resolve. My child's well being has not been their priority. On a walk through the playground today many for any hills were pointed out to her and upon leaving the playground she did not bother to notify any of the three classes outside to stay away from those areas showing blatent disregard for the safety of those left in her care. A few months ago I witnesses a incident where a child harmed another child which the teacher did not see; this resulted in the child screaming crying and the teacher did not attend to the child. I reported it to the office staff, the then director told me that it was my job as a parent to address it with the teacher not theirs. I was shocked and appalled. As a parent it is not my job to correct the teachers. We are pulling our child. We have been very unhappy with St.Johns and the lack of care and leadership.
