Horrible Sep 03, 2016

Where do I begin... This "daycare" is by far the most shitty unorganized place ever and I DO NOT recommend you place your (child)ren here. Barbara Winters is very unprofessional, she argued with me infront of a bunch of children didn't even have the decency to pull me into her office, not to mention she has a disgusting mouth. Always gossiping about someone telling all of their business. The staff at tender care is even worse with the exception of probably one person. The staff talks to the kids in a very ignorant manner from what I have witnessed, you can tell they are only there for the pay check not because they love the children. They'll hire anybody off the street basically. Tender care is overall a clean and tidy center, but again I wouldn't place my kids there, The best thing I could have EVER done was removing my kids from that place.

O NOT ENROLL YOUR CHILD IN THIS DAYCARE! The director Barbara cursed me out over the phone when I called to find out why they took my daughter into their school when she IS NOT enrolled there. My mother dropped her off while I was in surgery. She told the teachers "I don't think I'm in the right school." Yet they STILL took her! Thankfully I called my Mom & she ran back to grab her right away. I called the school & asked why/how they took a child they've never seen before, I was told it was my mother fault for dropping her off there. They didn't even ID my Mom. Then I was told "FILE A REPORT THAN! F*** YOU!" This is NOT a legitimate place to have your child cared for!
