Constant billing errors & when you try to get them resolved they ignore you and send it to collections. They try to bill me for days that my daughter isn't there. They've billed me over $1000 for after school care for only 4 weeks! It should have been $90/wk. They have lost our registration paperwork 4 times! I had to have the child health report filled out 3 times & pay extra at our pediatrician. My advice is DO NOT GO HERE! If you choose to anyway, keep very accurate records and photocopies of everything. When they neglect to provide your monthly invoice, request one from the supervisor because the billing girl, Veronica, will ignore your request. Then you'll get an astronomical bill that doesn't make sense and they, themselves, can't explain it!
