PLEASE don't send your child here!! 8/21/2007

I made the mistake of sending my child to Overland Hill's Childcare. I assumed since they were associated (and located in) a church that they would have my child's best interest at heart. My son was a year old & it was the first time I had left him at a daycare so I didn't know what was normal. I now know that they should have made sure he was signed in and out each day, never should of fed the toddlers (age one) and five year olds the same thing (one day it was chilli!!), and a few other things. The children never seemed to be doing any activities and one day my son was even sent home with the wrong paci in his mouth. He had sensitive skin so I made the point of writing his name on every one of his diapers and sometimes he still came home in a diaper that wasn't his. They frequently told me that he bit other children, which I couldn't figure out until someone from the daycare let me in on a secret. It was known knowledge that the head teacher didn't "like" my child for some reason and that he had been left in a high chair for hours at a time sometimes!!!!! Of course he'd be upset when he was let down! The breaking point came for me one day when he had been there over 5 hours and when I picked him up he was still in the high chair and had poop caked onto his butt because his diaper had never been changed (it was an unwritten one that I had put on him that morning!) When I collected his things I ran into his head teacher who told me that he was just plain "mean" and that's why he was biting other kids - which first off wasn't christian at all and secondly if she knew anything about children she would know that biting is a common way of communicating frustration in children that are only 1! I later ran into someone who worked there and she said she had to quit because she couldn't even set her child (who went with her) to eat at the tables because things weren't ever santized. I was heartbroken that I didn't realize how bad things are & that I let him stay in there a few months. So please please please don't make the same mistake that I did!! more
