I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Our daughter has been there for a year and a half with no issues. We received a letter yesterday saying that she no longer has a spot after the end of the week. They literally gave us a 4 day notice that we need to find another day care. The way management has handled this is simply unacceptable and with no compassion at all. If you have a career and need child care I would not recommend this center.
