Speaking from personal experience with Sweet Peas, this is not a place I would recommend to others.

I need to add to the recent reviews by parents who viewed this facility in 2013-2014. Unfortunately, I viewed the facility before reading reviews. I too heard it was a state of the art facility. After viewing I was inclined to check reviews after leaving this facility. They are right on the mark. When I went in to view this facility I immediately felt something was off. I felt like I was stepping into the Twilight Zone or some other realm. It was creepy. I saw staff standing around and gossiping. There was absolutely no interaction with children. I literally felt that if I were to send my child to this facility it would be like sending him to the Gingerbread house from Hansel and Gretel. That is the only way I can describe the looks can be deceiving feeling that hit me when viewing this facility. I felt everything was for show and personal profit, which was definitely confirmed when I learned the fees charged for tuition...NO WAY WOULD I PAY THAT AMOUNT OF MONEY TO LINE SOMEONE ELSES POCKETS AT MY CHILDS PERSONAL EXPENSE. In good conscience I could not even give them 1 star, but had to give a rating in order to share my feelings. .

So glad I read these reviews! It's sad there aren't more online reviews for daycares.The ones for this school were helpful as my visit there left me wondering why it was at the top of my list. The director doing the tour was ok, and I don't want to say anything too negative as I didn't end up sending my children there, but the place did seem off. I visited 6 other places & while this one had a great setting, I was taken back by what seemed like a lot of staff standing around talking to each other vs. engaging the children. Usually you don't notice those things when you visit a place as everyone's on their best behavior when they see a visiting family, so it was strange that I was able to pick up on this during my short tour. Feeling perplexed after my visit as to why this school was referred to me as one of the "best in the state", is what led me to check online for clues. Now seeing how the reviews were once consistently good, but now more recently terrible, must be an indicator of a good school gone bad. I'm giving them 1 star as I don't think an average of 4 is fair. Us parents need more info when choosing schools for our kids, hence why I wanted to share my feelings as well.

Agree with the last two reviews. Don't send your child here! The owner is aware of what goes on yet does nothing. The directors are never around to help as I can never find one. The school is overpriced and understaffed. For the amount of money we pay, I expect more! The classes are too big and sometimes I don't even get to see my child's teachers at the end of the day as there are random teachers in there. My child doesn't seem happy anymore. I have had some experiences with wonderful teachers and some I don't believe are qualified enough to work with young children. Think twice before sending your child here. It's not all it's cracked up to be!!!!
