12/28/2015Yale Road Learning Center
This is one of the best centers in 38128 with affordable rates and quality care. We stand on the foundation that everyone wants good care for their family but sometimes can't afford it. We have some if not the lowest rates around. Yale Road is a 3-star facility according to the Department Child Services. We take pride in our business, the families we serve, our staff and our facility. And only hire and retain the best. We want each and every family who walk thru our doors to feel like they belong here. We are highly organized and professional with over fifty years of combined early childhood experience between our administrative staff and our management. We take pride in keeping a very clean facility. People who we employ and keep on have proven time and time again they deserve to be a Yale Road member thru their work ethics, dependability, flexibility, knowledgable, professionalism and by their daily interactions with the children and families we serve. We have been open for over a year and have seen many not 12 employees come and go. You can't make them stay but you can hold them accountable for their actions. Only the ones who stay believe in themselves. The childcare industry is very demanding and challenging. In this line of work only the strong stays. Employees must be able to adhere to our policies and procedures ( employee handbook), actually show up for work, be punctual, be ready to work, be flexible from 6:30-6:30, be a team player. Most importantly, be able to educate our youth by following our curricula and keep our facility clean. Employees who are fly by night workers can't do those things mentioned above. They interview well, have great ideas but show little to no actions, once hired. Therefore, it they don't fit into Yale's program. They must move on. We have had some to quit, some to call-in repeatedly, be a no show when scheduled or think this is simply a baby sitting service that requires seating long periods of time, just to name a few. Yale is a center of learning through explorations, interactions, exposure with qualified, bonified hardworking educators who are lead by competent managers, leaders and an owner, who all collectively have a desire to bring up a generation of scholars. We have an open door policy and welcome the community to our facility to take a tour, ask questions, observe and to see it for yourself. Thank You! The Owner

My child attended this facility from October 2014 until July 2015. The women were nothing but kind and sweet to her. Her teachers kept her engaged and routinely sent me home with practice work to assist in preparing her for kindergarten, which she was more than prepared for. I did not have any issues with my daughter repeatedly coming home sick or with rashes as other parents have complained about. Now as to the high turnover rate, I know that the management team ran a tight ship, which anyone who owns a small business must, and as the saying goes one bad apple can ruin a bunch so why wait! I am not employed or related to anyone at the learning center. PS for those concerned with forms of payment..Why don't you all research how much it cost to run a daycare and think about how much you pay for that care, then divide that up by 5. Out of that children must be fed, rent paid, utilities, payroll, insurance, maintenance, equipment, etc. Remember vouchers aren't accepted everywhere

I recently enrolled my child at The Bright Ideas on Hilshire Circle and here's my honest review: They do a really good job overall, much much better than two other places I tried before. They really care about ALL the kids and it's a bigger than average facility, but you still get that "small " preschool feeling bc the children are divided into their own individual classrooms. This is not a daycare babysitter type place, it's a fun bright happy preschool. I really like the Director, she greets us every time we pick up and she's very involved in all aspects, not just "mgmt" stuff, I think she literally knows all kids by name and parents. I like that. The ASst. Director is a sweetheart. The teachers are teachers, not daycare workers and they take ownership of your child. Its so hard to find a good place for your child, but this is one of the good ones. They aren't perfect, but they sure try hard and definitely care. Ive already reserved my spot for fall. Very happy parent.
As the Director of Hope Of Glory Christian Academy we are firm believers of what our center stands for. We answer to both of these complaints with a sincere of respect toward our hard work and dedication for children. The owners, and the staff and myself are really working harder to provide a great service to all of our kids. If a parent wants to have a party at our center they are welcome to do so, yes we are a Christian center, but we have parents who want's there children to enjoy their big day. We work with all children no matter what their illness is, we are a loving kind center. These two complaints against the hundreds of great jobs we get from other social sites . So we thank you and our family members who decided to report our center, because they are mad . Thanks You....
