Our family LOVES Children's Academy! 5/25/2011

My kids have been going to this Children's Academy for about a year and a half now and they LOVE it and I do too!! There has been a change in the director recently and there have been nothing but positive changes. My kids absolutely LOVE their teachers! They run in to see them and forget about me- and I am fine with that! It makes it so much easier to drop them off. The center works with our schedule and are very flexible. It is a friendly, professional atmosphere and they keep the place running like a well-oiled machine. I have NEVER seen kids just crawling around in the hallway and it is spic and span- cleaner than my house!!\r \r All I got to say is thank you to the past reviewers as thanks to you, my infant only had 2 other kids in with her in the Infant room the entire time she has been in it! If you want to put your child in a place with 10 infants in a room then more power to you but that is NOT what I wanted. It has worked out perfectly for us and I couldn't have asked for anything better. more

Terrible place 1/19/2009

I went to this daycare for a tour while searching for a new daycare for my 18 month old and new born. When my husband and I arrived we where horrified by what we saw. First we just walked in, the door was open; then we see all the doors to teh rooms are open (it was about 4:30 pm) and kids where just running all over; we walked through all the rooms which looked old and drab, then when we where leaving we stopped in front of the infant room. This was the scariest part. There where a few staff memebers sitting on the floor talking and none of them noticed a little infant crawl right out the door and into the laundry room, we had to point out what was happening to the administrator giving the tour! Also the administrator was not dressed in a way that makes me want to feel my children would be safe with them. We could not run from there fast enough! more

Horrible daycare 9/30/2008

I took my daughter out of this facility shortly after placing her in it. One day she came home with a brown p**p stain on her underwear, because no one was paying attention to her while she was using the bathroom. One day I picked her up and she was in the bathroom with the door closed all by herself, and the teacher didn?t even know she was in there! While I was dropping my daughter off one morning a child in her class got reprimanded for accidently peeing in his pants. The teacher in my daughters classroom was lazy, and was changing a child while sitting on the chair one day. One day my daughter came home and said"" When the movie was over we watched it again."" This daycare uses TV to entertain the children. I noticed that my daughter stopped singing songs when she was home. At her old daycare, before this one, she would come home every day with a new song and learned her ABC's in a week, so I knew they weren't singing songs to the kids or anything. When I asked my daughter if they danced or sang songs there she said no. At the time my daughter was in the 3 year old classroom. The director of the daycare was nice to me on my first visit, when I was evaluating the school, but after I put my daughter in the school she was rude and acted like a different person. I always tell parents not to send their kids here if they are asking for a referral. It was a bad experience and the facility is horribly managed. Pros: nice playground equipment Cons: everything, teachers, assistant director, TV watching all the time instead of teaching more
