Bonney Lake KinderCare
When we do pre-screen, what do we look for?
During the pre-screening process our CareForce team:
- Verifies profile information for accuracy
- Cross checks the Better Business Bureau for accreditation and reputation ratings
- Conducts an online media search for negative, newsworthy incidents
- Performs an overall reputation check by reading a sample of online reviews
Please note that the CareForce pre-screening results do not reflect a care provider's licensing status. Learn more about licensing information for child care centers and in-home day cares
Information reviewed during the pre-screening process can change at any time. Accordingly, please make sure you perform your own research on the care providers you are considering and feel completely comfortable with the company or individual you have selected. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for selecting an appropriate care provider for you and your family.
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.
