10/10 do not recommend this daycare. These people clearly only want neurotypical children attending their facility. If your child is level 2 or higher ASD - DO NOT waste your time and money here. My child was doing “fine” and “good,” or so the admin and teachers were telling me, for two weeks, then going into the third week bites and bruises started showing up. I brought this up to the administration when they asked me about what we should do to keep my child from eloping the classroom, when clearly I’m not a professional. The only thing I could think of that might have helped was bringing in my child’s favorite toys, stuffed animal, etc. which was at the end of day on a Monday. The next day I did so, but was advised that it wasn’t quite helping by Wednesday, when I was called while I was at work from the admins to come pick my child up. They did not provide much, if at all, support at this time, but I was distraught and worried that my child would be unenrolled, so I called my local school district’s head of their special pre-school (which my child is enrolled to attend at the end of August), who advised me of Nationwide Children's Expulsion Program. They also suggested a baby gate for my child’s classroom. Both of these suggestions were shot down by the administration of Sunny Day Academy, citing that baby gates are a fire hazard (which is understandable) and that they’ve already worked with the Expulsion Program. Nonetheless, Chrissy continued stating that my child would not get unenrolled. The next day I received a call from Chrissy, stating that my child is being unenrolled and that they were drawing up an official document stating so. On the call, Chrissy was citing the reasoning for my child’s unenrollment being that they were “unprovokedly” hitting the other children in their classroom. When I got to the school my child was in the administration office, and I was given two incident reports, one for the “unprovoked” incident and one that stated that my child was bitten by another child in their class earlier that same day. Interesting that Chrissy chose to leave out that second incident initially when she called me at work. I ended up deciding to make my child’s unenrollment effective immediately, instead of keeping them there another week since I had paid for the two full weeks in advance. I had finally received a refund for the second week multiple weeks later, which was a whole other hassle and story for a different day. That next Monday, I spoke with two district administrators, Kendall and Alicia. They eventually admitted that the situation was due to their short staffing, but if that was in fact true then it would have been nice to know prior to even enrolling my child. I was told that they would get back to me regarding the truth of if my child was or was not having issues the first two weeks, when I had been consistently told that they were doing “fine” or “good,” yet I never received any type of a follow up from either of them. This all took place towards the end of February, after my child’s enrollment at the end of January. It is now almost the end of July - 5 months. All in all - please, please look elsewhere for your child’s care, neurotypical or not. It’s disgusting that a facility such as this could get away with this behavior.
I use to work at sunny day academey and all I can say is there a joke. They show so much favoritism towards kids and teachers. Administration does not communicate well, and they treat certain employees like crap. They don't provide the teachers with the proper materials needed for their rooms and a lot of the times the teachers have to buy provide materials for there own room. They don't order enough food for the whole being there was always a shortage or they would have to fix 2 different meals. Kids being left in attended to and sometimes not treated as all the others, labeling of children. The directors act like they love the kids but it's mostly a front, same things with teachers, mostly in the toddler rooms. Sunndy day is very deceiving the one in Hillard. I know this is going to be deleted the ones that have an issue with the center always does but I would not recommend anyone to go to the hillard location. Also have they teachers there that does pills ans other things that's very concerning.
