I cannot say enough good things about this center! My daughter has been going here for a little over a year now. The care she receives is the same quality our family gives her. The staff here is wonderful, so kind and attentive to my daughter. She has had 2 different teachers along with other teachers helping and aiding. All of them are so fantastic. The director Emily is always smiling and gives you a wonderful greeting once you come in the door that makes us feel like family. The assistant director Carol is so sweet and very accommodating to us when we have questions, she is also a very warm face to see when we enter the building to pick up or drop off. I couldn't imagine sending my little girl anywhere else. This truly is a school I am proud to send my daughter to.
Some of the staff is great. Some are cold and make you feel as though your kid is just a number. I suppose that's with many chain daycares unfortunately. Coming from a very warm and loving center to this place was a night and day experience. I only needed care for 3 1/2 hours per day (still paying full price tuition of 325 per week) and was lectured about how my child needed to be there by 930 because it was difficult to get a staff member to come in at 2 pm. I also got lectured on my parenting. I was introducing new foods too slowly and they were feeding him all sorts of things. I was surprised that he was eating pizza and cheeseburgers etc and asked to see the list of foods to get more ideas. Instead, I was scolded that it should be exactly what my husband and I eat. For any new parent it's a learning process, but apparently we should just know better. These are just a few examples. Only issues with a few people, many were thoughtful and kind.
