  • THEY STILL HAVENT FIXED THE CEILINGS? ITS BEEN LIKE YEARS.. OF COURSE THEY WOULDNT FIX IT, IT WOULD COST THEM MONEY TO DO THAT. HAVE THEY EVEN PUT IN A NEW PLAYGROUND IN? LAST TIME I CHECKED THE ONES THEY HAD WERE ALL BROKEN DOWN LOOKING LIKE A PHYSICAL RICK TO THE KIDS.

    NOW I HAVE TO ADMIT SOME TEACHERS AIDE ARE A LITTLE OFF,BUT DOESNT MEAN TO MAKE THEM SOUND BAD BECAUSE YOUR CHILDREN ARE LEFT ALONE WITH THEM. THE TEACHERS AND TEACHER AIDES ARE TRAINED THEM SAME. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT THE TEACHERS HAVE A COLLEGE DEGREE. (WHICH IS REQUIRED BY STATE LAW) SO THAT REALLY DOESNT MEAN THE AIDE ARE WORST JUST BECAUSE THEY DONT HAVE AS MUCH COLLEGE AS THE TEACHERS. IN MOST CASES THE AIDES DO ALL THE WORK AND THE TEACHERS JUST SIT THERE, BECAUSE THEY THINK THERE BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE. ALOT OF THE AIDES ARE MOMS ALSO SO YES THEY DO KNOW HOW TO TAKE CARE OF A CHILD. SO PLEASE DONT MAKE THE AIDES SOUND BAD.

    THE ONLY PERSON THAT IS CAUSEING ALL THIS EMPLOYMENT ISSUE IS ROBIN. SHE IS SO UNORGANIZED AND FLIPS EVERYONE AROUND JUST TO GET THE MOST OUT OF EVERY BUCK THAT THE PARENTS SEND. SHE IS SO MONEY HUNGRY AND ONLY PUTS THE MONEY INTO THE NECESSARY THINGS, FOOD...MILK...CLEANING PRODUCTS....BUT GOD FOR BID THE FIX A CEILING.

    I WOULD RATHER BE BROKE NOT WORKING JUST TO STAY HOME WITH MY KID THAN HAVE HER GO THERE AGAIN.

  • I don't even know where to start with this. The facility is layed out so you have to disturb other classes when bringing your child in. The place is falling apart (leaky ceilings, broken equipment, etc).
    The kids are allowed to come to school sick with a doctor's note no matter how sick they are.
    The teacher aides are allowed in the classrooms before their background checks and shots have all been completed and are at times left alone with the kids.
    The staff has a huge turn-over rate and I often had trouble remembering the teachers' names because there were so many teachers in and out of my child's class. There were only maybe four teachers/aides that were there for my child's run there and I can honestly say that I've seen about 25 others come and go. The vast majority of them weren't very great with the kids and I even heard one say "I've never changed a diaper so I don't know how." Yet, she was put into the toddler classroom where they change the kids standing up. It just seems as if the school really doesn't care who they do and don't hire. I feel like anyone that came in looking for a job, got one.
    The professionalism lacks big time!
    There are certain families that have a great experience at this school because they are what you might call a "valued customer." However, with my experiences, I will not refer anyone to this school and I am glad to be done with it!

  • i used to work there and everythign you said abou that place is. true. thats why i no longer work there and now i never ever will send my kid to a day care because of what i found out what they are really like. and the most wierdest thing i dont understand is that these parents are almost spending 300 bucks a week for childcare..and well.....lets just say you cant even live off of what we were getting paid.

  • Horrible school! The staff is changing constantly. The teachers play favorites with the children. The rules as far as illnesses and keeping your children home when sick varies from family to family. The director has favorites as well and those families can do whatever they'd like and bring their children to school even when sick. The teachers that I dealt with were for the most part pretty good but I also noticed that they were treated very poorly by the Director and I can't help but assume that that's why the staff members always leave. Needless to say, my child no longer attends the school.
