I have used this provider for less than 6 months

I would never elect to write a review normally, however, in this instance and for the sake of another child, I felt the need to share to spare any parent thinking of sending their child here. After having a bad experience at another facility prior and expressing these concerns to the owner and staff, we felt confident that we would get a better experience this time around. We were mistaken for sure!! During our child's stay here, she had at least 3-4 different teachers. This would become the least of our problems considering that on numerous occasions I've personally witnessed teachers playing on their phones while "caring for children", a child walking around with a black eye and bruised forehead due to "falling" at this daycare on two separate days back-to-back, formula being left out for hours and then fed to babies, a child being left in a bouncer facing a bare wall as if he were in "time-out", teachers yelling at children and emergency doors being left wide open in rooms where children can crawl out of right onto the parking lot and route 22. In my instance and the reason for my child's termination at this facility, I noticed for the past 2 weeks my child coming home with scratches. I expressed my concerns to the owner and teachers on numerous occasions with no resolution to later find out that a teacher was purposely inflicting these scratches on my child out of spite towards me and my complaining.

To give credit where it is due and express the most gratitude, there was one teacher in particular that was quite frankly, the only reason why we stayed so long. Ms. Tanesha is a god sent to this facility and possibly the only teacher who cared at all about these children and not just a paycheck. She cared about every child in there as if they were her own and I am forever thankful for the way she cared for my child and looked out for her best interest.

The staff here is very young and inexperienced for the most part. To put it blatantly, if you can pass a background check, you can work for this facility. There is more concern for having a body to watch children then having a qualified employee. If you are considering enrolling your child in this daycare, I would strongly recommend shying away. Not only will you be putting your child at risk, but you will find the same dissatisfaction as I did. My heart goes out to the families and children who still belong here and I hope that this review reaches you all and any future enrollees well.
