Bonney Lake KinderCare
About this program
Now my story:
My husband and I decided when he was three years old that our son was in need of socializing with children his own age. With no children in our neighborhood with whom he could play with we sought local daycare. KinderCare appeared to be the place.
He attended about 3 hours a day 3 days a week. Everything started off okay with the exception of him coming home dirty usually food on his face and clothes. (Yellow Flag: My son's a pretty neat eater and rarely spills food on himself and always wants a napkin for his face and hands.) Things worsened after the third or fourth week. After that he came home with something gummy in his hair one time and no one could explain what it might be. (Red Flag: One care provider even suggested that he had it when he arrived that day.) He got hurt a few times on the play ground where band-aids or ice would have been warranted and nothing was done nor had the daycare informed me of the injuries. (Red Flag: When I called to ask about a large scrape and bruise to his back that I discovered after we returned home his care giver responded that she forgot to tell me about it but ensured me it didn't bother him so nothing was done. It hurt him for the next couple of days and required a large band-aid.) Discipline was lacking. Other kids were hitting him and one even bit him on more than one occassion. The boys were especially rough often kicking and hitting one another with no intervention from staff.
After about 2 months of attending we pulled him out and never took him back. We would recommend not taking children to Bonney Lake KinderCare.
