Editorial review from Citysearch 4/5/2014

Maria Soto is a thief and an illegal alien that runs around with MFS Credit..aka MFS Taxes...aka MFS Property Management Company LLC which is a company that does not exist. Do not rent the daycare center at 2518 Hillcrest lane for she is the owner who is being sued by Dallas County for over three years of unpaid property taxes. She runs around with criminal Greg Hunter, Kenneth Smith who help her rip off people who think they want to rent this daycare center. I had it years before when Mr. Jerry Jordan was alive. He is now rolling in his grave watching what Maria Soto has decided to use this daycare center for. The city will not allow you to open once you have paid Maria Soto and Greg Hunter thousands of dollars in rent money. I paid her over $7100.00 as she knew it could never be used for a rented daycare center. IT IS A Scam! Not only did they steal my money, they had the nerve to steal my furniture which was donated by TXI for the children to use, but they also use the DeSoto Courts to place judgements on people to steal even more money from you. Maria was once a friend of mine. She has changed. I pray for her soul. Something is seriously wrong with her. The INS needs to deport her back to Mexico were she belongs. She was once a christian. No more, she has become a thief. Gregg may also be an illegal alien from Jamaica.\r THEY ARE SICK PEOPLE WHO LIE HABITUALLY! They will tell you that they will take care of the remolding and repair of the center. They lie! Maria needs to be placed in jail. She ran away to the Kleberg area she calls moving to the country. She is running away from herself. She will try to get you to pay for her moving expenses, her dying sister, food for her household. Believe she has never missed a meal which is why she weighs close to 500pounds. She needs mental help. Greg and his accomplices need to be placed in jail for fraud. He will call himself Maria's agent, and change the lease to what he wants it to say. We signed the lease in my home. Five days later he sends me a lease stating that only I would be responsible for any repairs, he fraudulenly changed the lease into what he wanted it to say for his and Maria Soto's benefit. Do not rent the daycare center at 2518 Hillcrest Lane. Greg Hunter has no office at 2306 or 2606 Oak Lane. They are thieves, and it appears that the city o f grand prairie and the police allow them to thrive there in the city to continue to rip people off. I believe eveything above that I have read about maria Soto. She has become the thieves that in the past has ripped her off. I have a $9,000.00 judgement against me for a building I could never rent from theives who meter tamper, and steal your furntiture as you try to move in.\r What you did to me Maria will come back at you seven times worst. It is biblical! You use to know the bible. Children's Express... aKA The Children's Garden has become a rental scam of a daycare center. The poor people that live in that division cannot receive simple daycare because of what this woman has become. She needs psychological help, she needs to become a legal citizen, and then put her in jail where Jesus can meet with her to get her old soul back, then she needs to lose weight so she won't be completely diabetic. CPS, The City of Grand Prairie, Grand Prairie Police, The Grand Prairie Courts...wake up! Why do you protect this individual and her band of thieves Greg Hunter and Kenneth Smith? more

BIG MISTAKE!!!! 10/14/2010

I have called the state on this woman. I had to go and file a restraining order on her because she was mad I took my kids out of her daycare!! She called CPS on me (which they came out and thought Ms. Soto was a joke) and she called my job and told them horrible things. Oh yeah, when I went to the police station to file complaints on her, they were very familiar with her and not for good reasons!! She has this weird control issue and is bi-polar. It makes me sick to my stomach to think what kids had to put up with, with this woman!! more

Grocery store stalker?? 5/17/2010

I removed my child from this center over a year ago for reasons unrelated to the directors weird & unprofessional behavior. I had my child there from the age of 6 months to 4 yrs. i was in my local grocery store this past Saturday night & passed Maria in the aisle. Unprovoked, this woman took out her camera phone, took my picture and as i smiled & passed her she called me an ugly devil. Then as i was checking out, she was lurking in the floral dept, hiding and watching me. IS SHE KIDDING????? she needs immediate psychological help! Having my child in her center for the years she was thre, i have witnessed a decline in the directors judgement an increase in strange, unprofessional behavior. I removed my child to place her closer to the elem school she would soon be attending & that action was apparantly taken very personal by this woman. I never had a single cross word with her until i gave notice of leaving the center. SERIOUSLY LADY, GET HELP:!!!! more

just ask to she her camera recordings, (in girls restroom) 11/20/2009

horrible place to allow kids to even enter muchless give care for them. CHILDRENS EXPRESS the name says it all, get the kids in and out fast as possible and deposit the paycheck. embarassing five year olds in front of entire school, making them wear diapers and a shirt when they had an accident when they had extra clothes and caught by the mom of the child, you should be in jail!!!!!! Pros: no longer have to witness her actions Cons: MRS. SOTO more

enraged ex-employee 9/21/2009

she treats the employees like dirt. she makes them cry. she forces the children to take naps. she slams their heads down on the mats. when they are in trouble she tell them ""start crying because you know you are in trouble"". this lady needs to go to jail. she wouldnt let the employees hold crying kids. she said they needed to be ""weaned from that"". the baby was eight months old and she was teething. and i dont think its her right to decide what other people's children need to be weaned from. she treats the employees and the parents like they are stupid and they dont know how to take care of kids. she doesnt even have any kids. i was bit by one of the children and when i told her she told me i had a supervision problem. she needs her license revoked asap. and maybe a little jail time or a trip to the mental ward wouldnt hurt. DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILDREN IN THIS PLACE!!! DO NOT WORK THERE!!! Very unprofessional environment! Pros: the children are actually pretty smart Cons: the director is bipolar, crazy, and extremely rude more

THE WORST EVER!!!! 8/5/2009

PLEASE IF YOU HAVE TO DRIVE AN EXTRA 10 MILES TO AVOID THIS DAY CARE, PLEASE DO. yOUR CHILDREN WILL NOT BE TREATED PROPERLY!!! EMPLOYEES ARE TREATED LIKE DIRT TOO. THIS WOMAN SHOULD HAVE HER LICENSE YANKED AND THROWN IN JAIL FOR CHILD ABUSE. BE AWARE THAT YOUR CHILDREN ARE NOT IN A GOOD PLACE. THIS WOMAN WAS FIRED FROM A DAY CARE FOR POKING CHILDREN IN THE EYES TO MAKE THEM GO TO SLEEP. NOW SHE OWNS A DAY CARE - THINK ABOUT IT!!!! Pros: Children are still alive Cons: children are being abused more

Excellent Child Care 6/12/2009

I've had my daughter at this facility for almost 3 years now. During this time she has been well cared for and I've never had any issues with the staff or the facility itself. The director constantly strives to improve and is in constant contact with state agencies working to reform the child care system from ""day care"" to educational facilities in which children can thrive. My 3 year old daughter now understands Spanish, knows the alphabet and can write most of her letters, knows about 30 words in sign language, and LOVES her friends at school. I read several reviews geared towards the director herself, but no one can argue that the facility is a well run and safe environment for children. While I don't agree with all her religious beliefs, I do believe that the director's actions are guided heavily by them. Pros: Quality education materials, caring well trained staff Cons: Misguided Director more

DIRECTOR IS CRAZY AND UNSTABLE 9/30/2008

Maria Soto, the director of Children's Express, is a very unstable woman. She is easily enraged and totally irrational. I would never allow my child or grandchild to be placed in her care! Please, please do NOT put your children at Children's Express. She's had complaints filed against her by both the City of Grand Prairie and the School District! more

Horrible Daycare 9/23/2008

My son attended this school several years ago and I am very surprised it is still open. The police were there two times when I went to pick him up. Both times were because CPS had been called on the director. Then out of the blue one day she told me I owed two weeks tuition from 6 months prior. I had to take off of work to come and get my son. I never brought him back. It was the best thing I ever did for him. more

Eyes Wide Shut 8/26/2008

I am retracting my previous praise of this daycare. Exactly one year to the day that I wrote my previous statement I found out what REALLY goes on there and I am shocked, appalled and disgusted. Parents entrust Ms. Soto with their most beloved treasure in life, their children, she has the gall to abuse and mistreat them?! I'm sick to my stomach. PLEASE EVERYONE GET YOUR CHILDREN OUT! more

CRAZY LADY!!! 7/18/2008

I had the same experience but she did call CPS on me after I had taken my children out. She assaulted me and I pressed charges on her, so after she found out she called CPS!!! She is crazy!!! She tried to run me over after court, she called my job and told them LIES, she constantly prank called me!! She needs to be in a mental institution, not looking after children!! more

DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILD IN THIS DAYCARE!!!!! MRS SOTO IS VERY RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL!! 6/3/2008

I had my son attend this daycare. He went there for an entire year. As he went there the director of this daycare never have a relationship with me at all. She was rude everytime I dropped off my son and always had something smart and rude to say to me. When she spoke to me she talked down to me like I didn't know anything about my child or raising my child. My son always had rashes on his butt when he was smaller. One time I picked him up he had a bite mark on him and she didn't even know about it and neither did any of the teachers. Another time I picked up my son from daycare after work there was cop cars all in the parking lot while the children were there!!! All the cops were surrounding her. When I told her it was his last two weeks she got worse!!! She was rude to me every morning when I dropped him off. She would call his dad complaining about me and when I asked her about it she said that I was immature and I was a bad parent! This women is crazy! She doesn't know how to treat people and will not try and have a relationship with you. Instead she likes to tell you you are wrong and make you feel like she knows more about your child then you do. Overall I don't think this lady knows how to communicate with people and she is very difficult to get along with. I don't like to be treated like I know nothing. I like to be treated like an adult and she did not do that! I tried to igore it for the longest time but it just got worse! SAVE YOURSELF THE DRED OF HAVING TO WALK IN THERE EVERYDAY AND DROP OFF YOUR CHILD AND DEAL WITH HER UNPROFESSIONAL BEHAVIOR!!! I STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILD IN THIS DAYCARE!! Cons: Director, parking, location, no updated equipment, no daily reports, Nothing good! more

Horrible daycare - Threatening director - Do NOT leave your children here!!!!! 2/4/2008

My children, I'm sorry to admit, attended this daycare for about 4 months. The director of this facility appears to have some sort of bipolar disorder and thinks that she is a psychologist! She threatens to call child services if you call and ask a question about your child's attendance - accusing you of harrassment!! She is insulting, degrading and a bad influence to have around your children!! NOT RECOMMENDED!!!!! more
