All of you need to stop complaining because just becasue dhs is at a center does not mean anything- and the licensers do not even know all that it takes to run a program! they think they do but in reality they do not! they change licensors more times than many of us switch their socks!This needs to stop! Some parents look at the centers as babysitters and nothing more! Try helping the situation instead of always complaining for once!

My child attended this day care for about 3 years. The staff that worked with her when she was an infant through age 2 were terrific. They were friendly, caring, easy to talk with and professional. Things changed when my daughter went into the early preschool program. The "teacher" was unfriendly and horribly unprofessional. When we would ask questions or bring up concerns about different things that were happening in the room we wouldn't get any answers. The communication was very poor. We went back and forth with the director for about 3 weeks asking for specific changes to take place and even though we were told that it was being worked on, no changes ever took place. When I gave our notice the director sent me a very rude email. After getting the email we picked up our daughter and never went back. It was a horrible experience. We found a preschool that has actual certified teachers who are professional, friendly and care about the kids and their families.

My son is 4 months old and even though he cannot tell me in words that he loves it there, I know he does. He smiles when I drop him off and smiles when I pick him up. I feel like they listen to me over there and they are good at telling me how he did that day when I picked him up. Some of the bad reviews I have read are crazy. Kids get hurt all the time. They are going to get hurt at home and they are going to get hurt at daycare. That's how they learn to deal with life. You cannot shelter them forever. So far so good over there.
