I have used this provider for more than 6 months

There are a lot of problems here. Firstly, she takes 2 weeks paid vacation every year. So twice a year you still have to pay daycare and find someone to watch your kids for a whole week. I can’t tell you how many times I have gone to drop off my child in the mornings and had to pound on the door to wake her up. And in the past she has left the children with her boyfriends. More than once. More than one man. Her rates fluctuate a lot. And she is constantly closing because someone in the home is ill; but the amount you pay stays the same. This daycare is the worst. I won’t let my child go back.

I have heard so many bad things about this day care the the lady who runs it. Horrible! Now i heard a few stories about what she did to several mom's and she caused it. She is a liar pretends to be your friend and sets you up for her failures. This woman needs to be arrested. She is putting a girls life through hell because of her lies and dhs is a a provider so they will not believe anything you say. She has had calls on her they do nothing. I checked this place out she leaves those kids in the room by themselves. Oh god i cant believe people even bring their kids there I am terrified of those kids safety. I hope someone puts a stop to this daycare this is just ridiculous and outrageously dumb for her to even be around kids. Horrible place I am not that cruel to bring a child there...ever!!!!

Wouldn't put my grandchildren here. Stuck up lady just wants money. Melinda does not care about these kids she doesn't want to take dhs pay. She only has a daycare to make herself look better from her past and present. I could go on all day. Skip!

I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

I don't know where to start. First the women does not watch these children carefully. She walks into other rooms and lets the babies with the toddlers if you're smart you know that's not a good idea. I have seen a little boy pushing not even a year old girl in walker running into things her crying and the little boy not knowing what hes doing keeps on and she is right there and is talking to another adult so i guess that's more important than picking her up or getting him away from her. When i toured this house they call a daycare i wanted to shut it down if i even had the power to. Anyone using this daycare I would watch out for that woman. She is not keeping your kids safe.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Melinda Stewart is a horrible lady. There were bite marks all over my son. She called DHS on ME!!! That was in January and I am still going through this. They told me daycare wouldn't call on themselves. They took my son away because she couldn't write incident reports or tell them HERSELF!! She doesn't watch those kids she leaves them alone and brings her boyfriends over and lets him watch them. I thought she was a good woman but she is not. I would not recommend her. You don't have to believe me but when this happens to you...well...guess you will be looked at everywhere you go and be called trash and get your child taken away from you FOR NO REASON and have to fight for them...I am going through hell because of her lies.
