This place is great, but it wasn't always. I'm giving it five stars for what it is, as I write this review, not what it was when I first started bringing my child here.In the beginning there was a different director and the center was open 24 hours, but there was really no structure and it seemed a little chaotic, to say the least. For the price, it couldn't be beat. One day, my daughter started crying when we were dropping her off for preschool and this persisted for a couple days, then my girlfriend brought it to the director's attention. My girlfriend had noticed changes in the teachers and my daughter was not adjusting well.The director, who was a new one, set up an appointment so they could have a sit down conversation. We were not pleased, before this appointment and wanted to know what was going on and why our daughter was feeling the way she was about the school.So, come to find out, they had been letting some teachers go and bringing in new ones and changing the structure of the classes to be more school like, rather than daycare like. The reason they were letting some teachers go was because they were bringing in more qualified people to fill the positions, after they had hired a new director, who is much much better than the original director.They have always worked with us, as far as payment goes, as long as you let them know in advance, which is like any bill.After setting up the new structure, my daughter, who was two at the time, was bumped up into the 3 year old class because she was doing so well, and they have talked about moving her up another class, since she has turned 3.I have been taking my daughter here since two weeks after they opened, so I've been there since the beginning and have seen the good and bad and the great changes and improvements that have been made. I wouldn't take my daughter anywhere else.Oh and their hours are Monday-Saturday 6am-midnight. Not 24 hours anymore, but not bad at all.

I absolutely LOVE this place. The Staff is AMAZING. You can clearly see that they love their jobs. I also love all of the security measures they have including typing your own individual code at the front of the daycare to gain access to the children. In this world, all of the security measures they have in place are very comforting. I have a 2 and a half year old and a 4 yr old. We've been going there for about 3 years and my daughters LOVE this place. The school has great curriculum and they serve healthy meals and snacks. My oldest just turned 4 last month and by 3 and a half, she knew all of her letters, colors, shapes and how to write her name. She constantly surprises me with the things she knows. They also do a GREAT job with potty training. Both my girls were potty trained by 22 months. I have no complaints at all. Everything about them is great. I could go on and on about the things I love about them, but I'll stop now. All I can say is you WILL NOT be disappointed if you take your children here.

HiI would like to take the opportunity to Thank you all. I cannot express the gratitude I have for the teachers, assistants and director of this wonderful daycare. The staff here care about the kids. They have a safe and fun place to be. I searched and looked for a great place for my son to be when I'm not with him, I went to several day cares interviewed moms, etc. and now I feel so calm and happy that I found the right place. I would like to give a special "Thank you" for the room # 2 teacher, when my son cried the 1st day, she took my son and gave him a hug and tried to calm him down, this touched my heart. The camera gives me peace and I am so happy to see he is in a safe, fun and lovely place. Today my son did not cried anymore and he even went to the teacher's arms right away..... Thank you "Blue Diamond" Bright Child Learning Center!!!

Choosing someone that will be around your child/children for such a majority of their day is extremely important. The encouragment, development and overall happiness of that child is #1. As parents, we couldn't be happier when we found Ms. Gloria and Bring em Young Academy. Our daughter has developed so quickly and she is encouraged everyday to exercise her manners, artistic talents, vocabulary & motor skills, and her independency - and she's happy doing it. She looks forward to seeing Ms. Gloria every day and all her friends that she has been around since she was 7 months old - she is now 3. Ms. Gloria will always be considered family as she has been such a vital and very important part in our daughters development - and we couldn't be prouder parents!
