I have used this provider for more than 6 months

This is the WORST daycare I have seen in years! Carla Smith-Ford the owner of this facility is very rude, untrustworthy, incompetent, and a psychopath. She will lie at the drop of a dime. She can't keep employees there due to her rude behavior. Unfortunately, on September 20,2019 she refused service to me based on her stupidity and uncaring nature. "And I quote. Y'all people need to stop calling me!" Very unprofessional and rude on her part. We only wanted to find out where our child was during the flood. This lady has no respect for anyone at all. This daycare is to full at times. She talks to the kids like they're adults. This lady should never be able to handle a daycare setting. Her workers are intimidated be her. This is sad and she should be removed from the daycare setting. in addition to that she has another location at 10635 Homestead Road#B where she operates out of a church.

She has never given me an eic number since my son been there. She have so many illegal things going on its a shame
