Hawfields was an awful preschool, at least in 2011. I had my two year old daughter there for a few months because the location was convenient and Mebane has few options, and the crying at dropoff got worse each day. The director is old, business oriented, and could care less about the families; all she cares about is money. The two teachers she had were nice enough, but seemed tired and overworked. I would get called to pick up my daughter because she was crying too much or one time when she had a mild diaper rash and she cried when she changed her diaper. I switched her to a preschool in Hillsborough and within a couple weeks she stopped crying at drop off and looked forward to going. Do not send your child here!

I agree somewhat with the March 3, 2011 post. There are pros and cons. Some of the workers seem more focused on child development than others. The Director is a bit dry, so it's best to communicate directly with the teachers and other admin staff if you can. I am happy overall with my children's classes and teachers at this time. It would be nice if they had a website with schedules, holidays and other info. Some of this is included in the handbook, but in today's world it is helpful to have it electronic. I don't think you can get a handbook until your child is enrolled. Maybe they have changed that, not sure.

Hawfields seem to have mixed reviews for me. I think the afternoon care seems to contract out help to younger kids, which is fine. However, they really need to screen them better as some seem to be there as an afterschool job. They almost serve as a babysitter instead of focusing on the child's development. The positive is they seem to have a good structure in place in the AM hours.

I have had 2 children in Hawfield's from 1998 until now and have nothing but praise for it. There are more than 100 daycares in Alamance county, so no parent has to 'lower their standards' based on selection. I don't 'lower my standards' where my children are concerned. Hawfield's has a 4 star rating from the state. That's quite difficult to do with 'not very clean' facilities or 'unenthused' teachers. Caring parents have been choosing Hawfields since 1965. So do I

I would not recommend this facility to anyone. It is not very clean, management staff is very uncooperative & many of their teachers seem unenthused. Unfortunately, it is one of the only daycare centers in the area so many are forced to lower their standards and use them. Make the drive elsewhere!!

My child is happy to go to school each morning. The staff is very loving and have fun and educational days planned. My oldest child was very well prepared for kindergarten both socially and academically.
