I have used this provider for less than 6 months

This place has very minimal activities and toys for kids to play with. The owner even uses a pack and play as a “baby gate” to restrict the children from entering the kitchen are. I guess it says a lot when a daycare center cannot even invest on a $35 gate. Being a first time parent not knowing what to expect, I had my infant attend daycare here. As my child progressed in his milestones, I realized it was NOT a facility that is equipped to care for infants. There are no mats for the infants to safely crawl on, only hardwood floors and a thin area rug, and no edges are bumpered for the children’s safety. There is also an unsafe fireplace hearth right in the area where the kids are allowed to play. My babysitter has walked in on my son on a cold, hard, tile floor with the patio door open. He had a fever that night and we ended up at urgent care. We have text communications and hospital records to show for. We offered to provide a mat for our child since he rolls around, sits up and falls over head first and we felt unsafe for him to be doing that on the Daycare’s bare floors. The owner was resistant. According to her “she lives there too, it will be unsafe for the children and it will start a cascade of special requests from other parents”. What about the safety of
Our child? I tried to level with her and very kindly requested, as a neuro-trauma ICU nurse Who sees head injuries on the daily at work, yet my legitimate concerns nor the safety of my child was in her best interest. The caretaker does not communicate well. She refuses to talk during “operating hours” because according to her she is busy with the kids but at the same time, will not reply after 6PM because she states she’s already off. It’s a slap in the face because when you drop off your child in the morning, she has no makeup on and when you pick up, she’s fully made up and has her hair done up. Bright, red lipstick and all. I refused to pay her any longer for doing her makeup rather than addressing parents concern. When we reached out to her to convey that my son will no longer be attending her Daycare, upon the advise of his doctor (due to the lack of safety measures available) her only response was “ok, I need a 2 week cancellation fee”. It would have been slightly comforting had she asked if my son was doing ok. Rather, she was concerned about the cancellation fee. She also requires a 2week full payment for when she’s closed for her annual vacation. From the time she closed for vacation, to the week she reopened and the next 2 weeks that she requires payment for cancellation, she’s receiving $1000 from me and will not even meet halfway to work out a deal. You do not have to take my word for it, just request a tour and the place will speak for itself.
