    This place is horrible all they do is criticize they have people working there that constantly have attitudes with the ladies they have daycare workers that don't like children like how can you work with kids and you don't like them ? You have woman bringing there kids in sick knowning there not supposed to and get other kids sick and now the mother has to deal with it as well as missing work and have to do make up hours like its insane just RIDICULOUS if you ask me . I've spoken with several lady's that live there and the stories I've heard are also ridiculous something needs has to be done about this . Its alot that goes on in that place that no one knows about and i believe the owners need to do some research ! I wouldn't live there i would rather live under a bridge !
