I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Joanna is not open to helping out what is going on in the daycare and if you tell her something about her son she says oh he would not do that and they let kids go there even if they are really sick

Hello Anonymous. I am sorry that you felt the need to post a review . I wish we could have been able to resolve whatever issue you had at that time. This was during covid and everyone was anxious about health and safety. We have a sick policy and discourage parents to bring their children if they are ill. Since this post, we have painted, sanitized to Covid standards, installed new flooring and remodled our facility. Please visit turnerdaycare.com for pics and info.

There are two sides to every story. The review left my JoAnna is incorrect, and another example of her deceit or lack of connection with her clients. First of all, my children were there full time. Also, I never complained about anything, but rather reminded them multiple times that they needed soap in the bathroom. Second, this review was left shortly after we left the daycare. It was the event that occurred with JoAnna's son that I unfortunately found out about six months too late. This is not a result of hurt feelings. As I stated previously, Tom was a great person. I simply believe that people deserve to know where they are taking their children. Another reason for leaving this daycare, was that I had conversations with an employee there, who told me that the children were denied snacks when they asked and that JoAnna's sons were mean to the children.

3 years later: Wow! I remember this woman. Very hard to please but we did our best. We provide an AM snack and a pm snack per the USDA food program. Auto soap dispensers and clean bathroom. Since this post we have made a lot of improvements and upgrades. Please visit Turnerdaycare.com for pics and more info.

We have been going to Turner daycare for almost 9 months. But is seems like we have known the owners Tom, JoAnna and the staff for a lifetime.
We have had many wonderful experiences during our time there. The staff have been great in working with my schedule. My kids look forward to going to the daycare every day, even on days they are off from school. The place is kept very tidy and well maintained. They have fun activities/fun holidays parties. I really can't say enough good things about them. I feel good knowing my son and daughter are in good hands. They have met all my expectations of a day care and then some.. Thanks Turner Daycare for all you do for my kids and being there when I can't be. You guys Rock!!

I am the owner

There are two sides to every story. Turner daycare tried to appease this reviewer who was upset when we could no longer keep her kids part-time. We made efforts to please this client, but she constantly complained despite our best efforts. Some of the info in the review are inaccurate and exaggerated. I believe this reviewer is motivated by hurt feelings. These specific issues should have been brought to our attention by the reviewer so we could resolve them.
This review does not reflect the overall picture of the high quality standards we provide at Turner Daycare. The review was left 6 months after leaving our care as she openly admitted.
We at Turner Daycare take pride in the care we provide for our children. We strive for excellence, cleanliness, and quality every day and address any issues as they arise by keeping communication open with our parents. We have been in business 19 years and have a strong history of happy clients and referrals.

This daycare is not great. We kept our kids there for a while because they had friends there, but I have a few complaints. First, it is really dirty. For a long time, there was either no soap in the bathroom or the soap had a lot of water added to it. This indicates to me that Joanna’s kids don’t wash their hands regularly. I also noticed that the main care provider doesn’t wash his hands after changing diapers. Second, that the name suggests the center is run by Joanna, but it is deceivingly run by her husband, Tom. Luckily, my kids like Tom. He is kind and seems to care about them. Third, there is not a lot of learning going on, just TV watching. Fourth, Tom and Joanna’s son Thomas should not be involved in childcare, whatsoever. He is moody and sushed me when I told my kids goodbye in the morning. I got report that he would hit the kids on the head and hold their faces to the ground. I tried to report it, but I found out too late. The state will not allow you to report it six months after the event.
