I have used this provider for less than 6 months

This review is extremely hard for me to write because we wanted a good faith based school for our daughter and the location was perfect, I called for almost 1 month before there was a space open and once there was we rushed over there to enroll her. On Friday while dropping my 2 year old off the school my husband saw a teacher hit a boy two/three years old extremely hard. She turned around and saw him standing there and was in shock, she picked up the kid and kissed him. When we got to the car was when he told me what he saw, later that afternoon while picking up our daughter the director and owner approached me and said “I saw that your husband was very upset this morning” I said “yes he was” and told them what happened they said they would look into it etc. Today they told me that said teacher was given a final warning and that she resigned and her last day is on the 30th. My husband wanted my daughter out of that school that very day but I wanted to give them a chance to do the right thing because I really liked my child’s teacher but what did it for me was telling me they gave her a final warning. Abuse of a child is an immediate firing offense, if she just resigns she can work at another daycare and mistreat other kids. My husband reached out to the authorities and they’re being investigated, do what you please with this information and don’t let the lack of seats in Davenport make you put your child in an unsafe place.
