I am a former employee but I moved out of state and no longer work here but I did care for Erikas kids and It's sad to see the review Erika J wrote when she knows good and well her kids and herself were treated the best. Erika would flirt with the owners husband saying in my mind very inappropriate things to a married man (it disgusted him. His face would tell the story so I'm sure he told his wife) but I can expect that from a female who is over 30. Has 3 kids and 3 baby daddies and NEVER been married. Erika would get rides home and to work on the regular. She wanted my boss to lie for her over some ongoing feud with one of her baby fathers. Her newest baby daddy Malcolm would talk down about her and how controlling she tried to be with him. And one of her other baby dad has a restraining order on her. Shes built like a 10 year old little boy but is constantly trying to be fresh with male parents and the owners husband. So if she got anything unpleasant from the owner it was her own fault. Telling someone else's husband you are wearing a sundress today and that you are single and ready to mingle is totally wrong. She stayed in the center just talking about nothing while we staff try to clean up and leave for the evening. She started to take advantage of the free van service so I don't understand why she is saying the owners wanted more money when she gets free childcare through the government I'm assuming. My tax dollars pays. I am glad she is not attending here any longer, the owner put up with way too much from Erika but If you are looking for a place for your kids to learn, but loved and cared for this is the place and even Erika says her kids learned but never mentioned how she too benefited from free rides and how her son got potty trained in 5 days of attending

Overall great experience. Only thing I can say is my son came home with the wrong pull up one evening when I asked the director she told me that the owner went to the store and brought my son pull ups because the ones I sent were too small. So I was actually thankful instead of upset because she could have called me at my job and required me to pick him up like some of the larger daycares do but instead they helped me out. He was fully potty trained in a month of attending I’m glad my son is in good hands. No complaints

I was asked to write a review about my experience and it is great. My older kids went here years ago when it was uptop and when I found out they got another location in West I didn’t hesitate to send me 3 boys. I am a police officer my wife is too so our hours can be crazy. They offer flexibility in schedule and they offer free drop off to school. A+ Thanks

Wow I am very surprised at the reviews because I believe this place is heaven sent. My kids love it here. They offer pick up and drop off service free of charge and the staff are very professional and always on time. I have referred the daycare to several of my family members and friends and they have all good things to say. I can only imagine what it would be like to try and please 30 kids a day and the parents I see coming in the center to pick up their kids who are ungrateful are mostly welfare, section 8 parents who have burned every bridge they come across. All 4 of my kids are treated well, fed nutritional meals and they learn like they are in private school. My experience with the owner has been wonderful. I'm sure anyone can have an attitude when faced with problematic parents but I told her I didn't have enough food for my kids and she sent the kids with a weeks worth of meals out of her own pocket and let my kids come for free for 2 weeks. Because I don't get ccis or any welfare I work hard each day to provide. She even took me to work for a week when my car broke down just to help me out when my husband was arrested. I have never had a daycare care so much about me and my kids. And the owner has several kids of her own but still has a big heart. I am grateful to have found this daycare.

Responding to The comment from Erika J. I am a staff member and have been working here for quite some time. Yes I have seen several staff members come and go but who hasn't in childcare? I'll wait... Also Erika kids were treated EXTREMELY WELL. Her children were picked up each day from home and dropped off home each day while she sat home and did nothing. She claims to work 5 days a week but only works 1x a week. Which is ccis fraud and she needs to be reported. However Erika has on going issues with her 3rd baby daddy and wanted the owner to lie for her so she can take it to court and have the father arrested because he tried to talk to another parent and he's had several relationships with parents who have kids in the center. However I specifically remember my boss being very uncomfortable and refused to lie for her. This made Erika upset and jealous in my opinion. She seems to be very lazy and unmotivated and I told my boss she should make her bring her own kids to daycare each day. I can recall a time when she came to pick up her kids and she sat in the center for 45 minutes talking my head off. She has way too much time on her hands and needs to be reported to welfare fraud ASAP.

overall my experience was ok. the owners started off nice but became inconsistent. my kids were kicked out via text message because the owner heard I was taking them out and putting them in another center and got mad. she was nasty with the worker from ccis who called on my behalf. she hung up on me me because I caught her in a lie and was very rude and unprofessional. she never asked me if it was true just kicked them out knowing I had to work the next 2 days. she texted me this when she knew I was on my way to get my kids. instead of being a nature professional she handled things like a child. she also makes up things as she goes along to get more money lies about hours and when you tell her you will check with ccis her stories always changes. yes my son learned a lot and overall my kids were treated ok but professionalism is not her best trait. you can't claim to love kids if you would kick them out in the middle of the week and say they are no longer welcome in your center because you are mad because you heard something from someone else instead of verifying with the parent and handling things professionally and allowing the kids to finish the week and the parent can work. even the staff complains about their professionalism and they have gone through a few staff members since my kids started in may..I was told by several staff members at ccis to report them because what they did is not ok and I have the texts to prove everything I said..

My son graduated from this center and was treated with the highest respect. The staff and owners were great. I highly recommend these daycares. Small environment which gave my son exactly what he needed.

This is the most disgusting center I've ever been to in my life. The center is filthy and un sanitized. The walls and rugs look as if they haven't been washed all year. There is roach and mice dropping all through the center and especially the kitchen. The kids are allowed to operate the microwave by themselves along with crossing the street with out a staff present. All the toys are dirty, and broken with and can become a safety hazard so not only is the center disgusting but it is un supervised and filthy. The staff is more professional then the owner. She tells everybody business and talks about every staff and parent behind their backs. I would not recommend any one to this center. Don't believe me, just go in and take a look for yourself.

Just a moment...
