They don't teach your children anything! My child was there 2 years and learned very little. When you tour everything is setup to look nice & in order but it's complete chaos. They have low attendance so they are using their location as a holding tank. Older children get dropped off & then picked up by the school they attend. In the mornings, all children, all ages, are together, & once an older child wrote "BAD" in black marker on my child's hand. This went unnoticed all day, I saw the word still lightly written on my child's hand when we arrived home that afternoon. I brought it to the attention of my child's teacher who said he was aware of what child would have done that due to issues the child has had in the past at center; not Ebenezer student but a child that gets dropped off/bused to her school. Low attendance has forced the center to put 3-5yr olds together, not a very effective learning environment. Teachers spend time dealing w/ behavior issues with the younger children all while the older children suffer.
Several times I've walked in my child's classroom and noticed children running around w/ sticks. I brought it to the attention of teachers and was told the sticks were from the "Camping area"! Why sticks?! Another time children were running around hitting each other w/ large, rubber dinosaurs while teachers ignored them. I asked the children to put those down and let them know they should not be used for hitting. AM teachers failed to provide nfo to me because as the childcare director, Ramona Perales, put it... I'm intimidating! I believe people in this profession should be able to communicate with all types of personalities/ethnicities,etc.. in order to provide parents w/infor that's needed! Bottom line. Ramona Perales said that I come into the center during pick up very quickly and then leave. I'm not sure what parent pick up children after work and sits sound to discuss where happy hour is going to be?
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS CENTER TO ANYONE.
Horrible day care. My son is going to this day care and there were 3 incidents that startled me:
1. Once he was bleeding when I went to pick him up and the teachers did not have a clue. When I told them then they cleaned it and nursed him
2. Few weeks later, one kid scratched my son on the face pretty badly. There were scratches on both sides of my son's face and the teachers did not know how it happened. When I talked to them they filled an incident report and in it the corrective action plan was "talk to the children not to scratch friends"
3. Few more weeks later, same thing. Scrathes on my son's face and it was severe this time. And the result - same incident report same comments.
The staff are nice and friendly people but as a day care unit, horrible. It looks like they do not know how to control kids. I would not recommend this to anybody.
I son was in this daycare at my old school. It was horrible. I hated it. My son was neglect and was not giving the care he should got. thye didnt hold him when giving his bottle.
My children have been going to Ebenezer for awhile now. My daughter went for three years until she started school and also attending on off school days, and my son has been here from infant until present. The care my children received and continues to receive is exceptional. The teachers are great and I wouldn't think of taking them any place else!
Ebenezer Child Care Center is great! They are one of the longest operating child care centers in Milwaukee. They also have staff that have been working with them for a very long time. When I first saw the center and saw how well the teachers work with the children I knew I could trust them with both of my children. They provide a safe environment and they actually teach my children age appropriate things for their age group. Kudos to Ebenezer!!
