I don't usually write reviews on things. I leave that to my wife but I was/am so impressed by this center that I decided I would let it be known. My son is my firstborn so he is my pride and joy. I was nervous when my wife wanted to get a job and put him in a child care but I sincerely feel like this place is another home for him. He is happy and safe and the teachers love him and he loves them and that is important to me. I couldn't be happier with where is at in his life as far as developing and growing. We owe it all to YSA. Thank you for giving us the best life for our son. BEST center in the WORLD hands down.
This is quite frankly a wonderful school that seems to be getting a bad rap from people who either did not pay their bill, or were let go for not having the proper qualifications. Heartbreaking as I know first hand the work they do in the community AND in the classrooms.
Management is HORRIBLE. Son was injured 3 times in the first week alone, once because a large chair fell on him and knocked him to the ground. Overcharged by $2000. Tried to sit down with management 4 different times and when the day would arrive they would tell me something came up. Owner called and left a horrible message stating that she would NOT be meeting with me, that we owed the money and she had nothing else to say to me. After I finally found an exceptional daycare, I ran into an old worker from the Academy. She stated to me that she couldn't stand to work there anymore, that she would NEVER leave her child there and that the children there were very VERY much neglected.
Terrible staff. The building itself is nice enough but the staff is staff inexperienced, rude, and neglectful. They don't get fed enough. My child (under 1 year) is always returned to me hungry, filthy, and banged up. They make you give them a schedule but if deviate from that schedule and try to bring them in early or late they will refuse to take them. However you will still have to pay for the full week. None of the "teachers" have any childcare education or teaching education for that matter. They have so many rules that you really don't have any say over what is done with your child. Please don't give your kids to these people.
This is the best kept secret in Colorado Springs. Hands down the best of the best in care and education.
