Beware! In my opinion this is the worst day care in the state. The staff is incompetent and unattentive. I pick up my child and find him covered in food and mucus from a runny nose. Most days he is left strapped in a high chair or locked in his crib rather then allowed to play in the very small play area. They have released the child to me without even checking ID. They will hand small children off to any stranger who shows up. I found my child in the small play area once while 4 other small children were strapped in chairs and the care provider was in the far corner with her back turned filling out paperwork. The staff is unaware of safety procedures and when questioned did not even know where to find a first aid kit. The logs are illegible and the time frames are entirely false. They refuse to provide with me paperwork and are currently operating on a temporary license. They have little to no concern for the children, all they want is your money. STAY AWAY!!!
I have worked at Betty's Learning Academy for nearly 5 years now and am just so pleased to work with such a dedicated team of professionals. The teachers and assistants really love the children and it shows. The academics are balanced with quality, child-directed play. The library is full of a vast array of the best children't lit around and all ages, even the infants, are read to several times a day. The staff attend frequent trainings to keep up with the most current research on Early Childhood Education. The center itself is clean, cheery, bright, and pleasant. I can't say enough good things about it. Anyone looking for childcare in Union County should come take a look for themselves.
