My daughter is almost 2 and has been attending for a couple of months on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 90% of the time when I pick her up she has a poopy diaper. This has been addressed with upper management twice. The hourly diaper check report is a lie. I dropped her off at 9am and picked her up at 3:30 and her diaper was changed twice, and she had been sitting in poop for a long time since it was dried to her bottom when I got her home and changed her. She also had a diaper rash that she didn't have when I dropped her off. They have had numerous "accidents" that didnt "break the skin", except Tuesday she supposedly got pinched and under the bandaid was 3 finger nail scratches with scabs. Don't believe the hourly diaper report!! Now I have a moody baby because she has a rash....THAT I PAID FOR!
I enrolled my 18 month old because the facility seemed to have everything we could want. The older kids seemed happy and engaged, BUT,....the very youngest children in the facility (in my daughters classroom), had teachers who would only talk amongst themselves as they fed babies in a high chair or changed diapers. It was like a production line,...feed or change a baby, put it back. I stayed for about an hour on 2 different visits. The kids eyes were glossed over, and when I played with them, they acted as if it was new and strange to them. One teacher tried to sing a song with the kids when I asked about activities. She obviously didn't know the words, and the kids just sat there confused. Every day when I went to pick up my daughter, there would be at least one child crying inconsolably while ignored by teachers. My daughter seemed very unhappy at the end of each day. Things may have changed in this year since, but, I recommend any parent of infants and toddlers who choose this facility spend as much time there as possible and look for these signs. Early development is very important to a child's future. Small children can't tell you what's missing. PLEASE, GO CHECK!
I'm not sure if the staffing has changed since the sour parents of the1 star reviews, however I would like to say this: My daughter and I have moved around quite a bit in her life :/ she's been in and out of a few different schools. My personal experience with the staff at Country Home on Fred Rd absolutely deserves 5 stars! They are so helpful and are more than willing to answer any question or concerns you have right then and there. Their whole day is planned out with learning activities, two playtimes outside, nap time, music time etc... My daughter loves going to school, every time she wakes up she's asking is she can go to school. My daughter has also become much more verbal, now has a much wider vocabulary and communicates more effectively. Her teacher Ms. Darleen is amazing, very open about the day and any slight concerns she might have. From what I ve seen all the staff member's that I have encountered that are involved directly with the children are truly concerned about the Childs well being. Yes it might be a tad bit more expensive, but even as a single mom working one job, Country Home is well worth it in every aspect.
We were blessed to find Country Home and Ms. M. who were the very best with our two y/old son! There were only 10 other children in his classroom and the main teacher had 2 very friendly assistants to help so the ratio was something like 4 to 1. We popped in unannounced at various times of the day to drop and pick him off and the planned activities were always followed such as daily crafts, book time, playground time, meals and naps. Also teachers always wear disposable gloves to change diapers or serve food and drinks. Perfect five stars! I've personally seen his teacher Ms. M. cuddling with any children that were home sick when they got dropped off, she is a wonderful caring teacher that treats her little students as her own kids. Our son was promoted to the next level and his new teachers were very informative and always more than willing to share all sorts of details about his day. Very friendly! Honestly we loved Country Home on Fredericksburg, trust them to be the best out there by far! We'll miss them all very much!
