Effective March 20, 2015, I withdrew my 4 yr and 6 yr old from Twin Oaks CDC. The reason for the withdraw is the lack of regard for child safety and lack of parent communication. More specifically, on three occasions my daughter (after school child) did not show up to the after school program. In each instance, the center failed to contact me. In the last incident, the school bus actually had an accident causing a delay in arrival for over two hours. Upon arrival to the center and to our dismay, we learned that our daughter and others on the bus were unaccounted for. By the grace of God and the notification of another parent, we learned about the accident a mile down the road. After speaking to a staff member, I was told that calling parents is not a daycare policy and that it would take too much time and effort to ensure the safety and well-being of a child. They would rather assume that a child was sick and did not attend school. To me this is utterly disgusting. I asked for the Director to contact me and never received a call.

I would not recommend this "school" to anyone. My two children attended for a few short months before I finally pulled them out. Each classroom lacks structure, and the infant room is horrifying. The teachers don't hold the babies; they leave them in bouncy chairs, swings or exersaucers all day. And teachers bounce the seats with their feet while sitting in rocking chairs. Incredibly lazy and not interactive. This daycare has very little teaching going on. Mostly coloring and worksheets. The teachers raise their voices often as well. My 2 year old had quite a few "boo boo" reports, but never was anyone able to tell me exactly what happened. They also have a ridiculous policy which does not allow you to bring your child to school after 9am without a doctor's note. I hesitate to call it a school, because it is definitely more of a daycare/babysitting center. I advise anyone looking at this center to show up unannounced a few times before making decision. I also urge you to look at other centers and do your homework. This place needs a complete overhaul...immediately.

Twin Oaks has been a very good CDC for my family. They have educated and matured my son into a little man. He does sign language, counts to 10 and can do most of his alphabets and he is not even 2 years old yet. He shares, works well with others and does not have fits around new people. He loves his teachers and school and starts to giggle anytime he walks through the door while saying Good Morning. I enjoy the staff because they care and show it each and every day. Their care for my child has been more than I could imagine and will continue taking him there for many years to come.

I am one of the most picky people especially when it comes to my son. I love this place and so does my son. They are professional and structured and do a lot with all the kids. I couldn't ask for more. Do not believe the one negative review that makes all kinds of crazy claims based on one bad experience. This is a good a CDC. Visit and you'll see.

My children have been at Twin Oaks for almost two years. I am blessed to have a facility that cares for my children as if they were their own. My children are glad to be there and sometimes cry if they need to go to home Last week my daughter told me to go get her brother first . As I arrived to the play area my son told me to go get his sister first. Neither one wanted to go home. My son picked up a penny on the ground yesterday and said hey mommy that is Abe Lincoln. My mouth dropped to the ground. A five year old is being taught concepts and new ideas that he will use throughout his life. My three year old is learning to write her name and recognize site words. As an educator i am impressed with the learning that takes place each day. I feel they are being prepared for school and the things they need to know as they grow older. I would highly recommend Twin Oaks to parents who are looking for child care center. Their prices are also very reasonable compared to other child care facilities.

My two children have been attending this daycare for almost a year. I have had no problems and love this center. The staff is great and I am very confident that my children are well taken care of while I am at work.

My child went to this daycare for less than a week and I pulled her out on day 5. It is not up to par. I was very disturbed by things I heard and saw in this place. I will never recommend TO CDC to other parents and have heard several poor reviews from other moms who had already removed their kids. Out of 7 people I talked to, only 1 person had positive things to say. When I went to pick my child up, it was like a 3-ring circus! The kids were just running around with no structure when they should have been engaged in activities such as story time, singing, art, etc. I For snack, the kids were given Swiss Cake Rolls. One teacher acted bothered by me asking about my child's day. Another teacher even bad-mouthed this daycare & said she was quitting soon.
