I worked here for a few days. I quit without a second thought. They overwork their staff, which is why they're always getting and losing new staff members. They go over the ratio of allowed kids per classroom. They don't provide any actual activities for kids to do 80% of the time.The classroom calendar on their wall? Yeah that's a lie. Your kid will spend 80% of their time being yelled at, dealing with the unruly kids we weren't allowed to report, probably getting hurt due to how overcrowded and understaffed the rooms are, being fed awful food that barely fits health standards and playing with worn toys. We aren't allowed to write injury reports, even for head injuries, for some inane reason. Or rather, a day care worker will request one and we'll never get it. I dont even understand why this daycare is overcrowded. Even the kids know there is a larger Jamboree daycare down the road in San Benito they could be at.If you leave your kid here, they will be miserable.

I signed up with a very friendly director. Trusting her kindness, I went back the next day to drop off my baby girl. MY GOD there were over 20+ babies and toddlers, only two women on staff... I didn't want to put my daughter down because the kids were all misbehaving and running around. The place made me feel so sad. I left for only three hours, but I felt so ugly inside, I rushed back to pick her up. When I talked to the director the next day, she said they were missing two ladies that day... uh, they need to be properly staffed all the time.It smelled like cat pee, it was dark in the rooms, the children were mostly crying or yelling, and when I picked up my baby girl, she looked like she had been crying too. Baaaaad place, do not trust them with your precious babies.

We've had our children in other, much more expensive child care facilities in town, and For Kids Only has by far been the best move for our family! The director, Ms. Chapa has been in education for YEARS and knows how to manage her staff and business. Food is purchased daily for meals, so that it is fresh. Breakfast, lunch AND dinner are provided, which is so much for convenient for our family since I don't have to send my children with meals or snacks, like plenty of other daycares in town. Ms. Chapa also texts and calls my husband and I to report ANY incident, from falls or scrapes on the playground to the smallest of scratches, she let's us know when it happened, what they did to treat it and if another child was involved, what discipline action was taken. You can stop by or call anytime to check on your little one, the daycare understands you are just concerned for your child's well being. The first week your child is enrolled, you will get a daily report of how they did. I believe they also give report cards twice a year. I know different people have different experiences at different daycares and this has been my family's experience. We have 3 children here and no complaints!
