My two daughters have been there for over 2 years now. The staff has been great overall. There have been some minor issues, but then again kids will be kids. The worst thing i can think of was a certain kind of ointment was supposed to be applied on our youngest, the staff forgot a couple days. I reminded them and they had no problems remembering after that. I dont know much about the leadership there, i just see the teachers in the morning and evening. The kids all seem to have good manners there, something they must have been taught. Good place for your children to be, happy kids.
Once a top notch daycare, St James has deteriorated to one of the worst daycares in Abilene, by far! The kids and babies are constantly screamed at, left unsupervised and treated horribly. The director has no common sense and the staff are extremely unprofessional and LAZY. There is no leadership and absolutely no curriculum.
