I am puzzled by the other review because I have never experienced any of the situations described and have only been very pleased. As a former early childhood educator at the Masters' level, I am very careful about the people who will care for my grandchildren and the features of the building and grounds. The facility is always very clean and tidy, and not just at the entry; I do walk through a frequently. The entry doors are well secured, healthy food is catered, staff are all properly qualified, playgrounds are safe and have been upgraded since ownership has changed. The hands-on owners and staff put much thought and concern for the children into all areas and the curriculum is wonderful. The children are very happy in the loving and positive environment which has been created. I highly recommend this care center.

Issues: 1. Staff turnover: This facility must be a terrible place to work because they cannot keep a staff member in the rooms for more than a month. Every month I was meeting new staff members to take care of my child. 2. Unsafe play areas: The play area is filled with tiny rocks instead of a safe coosh-ey mat and my toddler had several injuries from falling in the rocks, once a minor black eye and a large indentation from where the rock was virtually implanted into his face. When I brought this to the attention of the director they said it was too expensive to put the safer material in. The next month, they built a greenhouse. 3. Unclean, messy, disorganized facility: The facility itself is dirty and run-down. When you walk in, the entrance is surrounded by boxes and things that stay there for months. 4. Pricing: Given the above issues, you would assume that the prices would be lower. They are not. They are the same as the brand new facilities down the street. It is common to have allotted vacation days, but this facility is very scarce with the # of days. You only get 4 a year, because Thanksgiving is considered "one of your vacation days" even thought they are closed.
