I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My child been in stefko daycare for many years and I never had no problem with the staff until the Derector.tracy fraley came to work to the center. I didn't like the way she was with the staff or the kids. They had to call the police on her because she was stilling from the owner credit card, and took a lot of money and toys. She is in a Rehab facility now. They fire her from the other center because her and her husband is stilling money from the other center she was working before. I know is not my problem but what she said about stefko daycare is not true. They have very professional teachers and have good standards. The daycare is very clean. The food is good too. I never have any problems with any of my kids. I referred you to go and try it out and see for your self. If you have a problem, the staff is very good at getting the answer for you and making you fell like family. They really do care for the kids.

weI have 3 children enrolled here my experience has been pleasing to both my husband and I we are Private Pay Parents, My wife is having another baby so we decided to look for childcare center for the twins there was two others around the same area but what captured me about this center is that it was small family styled and the Warm spirited from the door, The Lady Miss Ann was so pleasant and kind she even invited us to have lunch with them which we never experienced that before the lunch was home made ..oven roasted chicken, greens, mashed potatoes and Apples and grapes, we weren’t an appointment visit so we extremely impressed.

We put our children in the next 2 days.

Horrified parent Sep 03, 2018

Teachers are completely negligent to all kids. They sit on their phones while on the clock. They ignore the wonderful director I had the pleasure of meeting, which was the only plus to the facility, but a few days later found out she had been working for free against her will because the so called “owner” JOSE, asked her to hold her paycheck so the teachers could get paid first. however through the grapevine heard the teachers aren’t even getting paid and having their checks bounce. I overheard this information one day as I was signing my child out, and totally horrified to look over while the teachers were painting their toenails on the clock ignoring the infants crying and crawling around with overloaded diapers. My son came home on 2 different days to find lumps on his head with no incident report filled out and the teachers were clueless when asked what happened and why wasn’t I notified. It seemed like they had no idea what an incident report even was. Another day when picking up I could blatantly hear the owner yelling at the teachers and antagonizing a child. Saying directly to the child “I don’t like you, you have to go” needless to say it is appalling this kind of negligence and beyond piss poor management by Jose, the owner is allowed to continue. On the day I disenrolled my son and declared was his last day, I pulled up to witness the only good thing about this place, the director, talking to police officers....I could overhear her saying the owner had stolen personal items from her and how she regrets not calling the police the second it happened. Wish her the best, I hope she was the one who called the cops on them and was smart enough to take her skills and kind heart far away from the dump. Poor girl looked traumatized while talking to the cops. As for the rest of the place I hope it is bulldozed to the ground, with the owner inside. I seriously have never seen this level of unorganized, unprofessional and straight neglect out of a daycare from a so called “licensed” center. I know the current director helped my son personally towards the end of his time there, and she was the only reason I stayed as long I did. I didn’t realize how bad it was until she came and turned the place around from trash to a noticeably decent daycare in just a couple weeks. I could continue with more and more but to finish this...PARENTS STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. I have no relation to anyone at this facility, and took the time to write this because this is serious. After some research I found out the only person with an education in general of a bachelors degree in early childhood education and a minor in child psychology was the director. Sadly she was only there for a couple months.

Also, I created this post from a hard lesson learned to share with other parents to THOROUGHLY research the childcare facility and do not be afraid to ask questions. Also, you can go to DPW.PA.gov to get state inspection checklists to take with you for a tour, and report any negligence to the state inspectors without hesitation. After all we are the voice for our children. Do not make the same mistakes I did.
