I have been taking my children to Little People for about 3 months now and we have recieved quality care. I enjoy listening to my 4 yr old tell me about all the things she has learned through their program. They clearly have redirected my childs attention in a positive direction because she has not been acting out lately. It has been a good experience for me and since I work 2nd shift of course it's convenient!

Notice that the 3 "wonderful" reviews happen to be written 3 days apart from on another. Yeah, right. Obviously the owner wrote them. This place is horrible.

This place is dark and scary. It's really cheap but you get what you pay for. I showed up unannounced to check it out. They had infants unattended in the front room in front of a TV, the child teacher/child ratio was about 15/1 (I don't think that's legal), when I asked about school age childcare, they said they only go up to 5 years old but as long as I bring my school ager after 5 it would be fine because state usually comes before 5pm. If you are willing to bend the rules that, what else will you bend the rules for? Then, to top it all off, they have a big sign in the filthy bathroom that reads "Do NOT scream at the children". Really? It reminds me of the daycare from the Will Smith movie Pursuit of Happyness (happiness was spelled wrong at the daycare and the kids watched Love Boat all day, but it was really cheap and he couldn't afford to take his child elsewhere). I honestly think that the other "positive" reviews that were posted were probably staged by the owner. The first review where the child was neglected and covered in pee is more accurate. When I went to the next daycare to take a tour and shared with them what I had seen, they told me that they have heard of scary stories about this place and have received a lot of children from there. Don't waste your time checking it out, I already did that for you, or if you don't believe me, show up unannounced and see for yourself! Ps. I wouldn't give it any stars at all but this website wouldn't let me post this without rating it.

My 2 year old went here for a couple weeks, i worked late, there was a couple things that i had a problem with, their door was never locked during the day. The second day i droped her off, a teacher gave me the price for 3 days a week for 3 weeks. I said no that cabt be right. The main lady uped me $5 on my daily rate. And couldnt tell me . Told it to the techrt. So i got over that whatever. Then one night going to pick her up, she burst into tears seeing me i picked her up and she was soaked in her pee, still in her jeans. Then the lady who iv never seen in my life says "oh is she potty trained" she was with her for 5 hous! How do you not know if shes potty trained. Didnt say sorry or anything. My daughter's face and nose were crusty from crying all day and not being cleaned up. Her jeans were soaked with pee. I never went back after that night. This place is terribly. With staff that do not look after your kids. I had to ask every day what did she do what did she eat. And they keep their toys behind a door. And my daughter would talk about the other room. Very odd.

My husband and I ABSOLUTELY love Little People Academy and could not ask for more loving and better qualified people to take care of our son!!! I visited other centers before choosing Little People Academy and didn't feel the love or warmth that I felt when I entered and I knew that my baby was in caring hands. Not only do they provided a learning plan to help my little one develop but they have also helped me in different aspects of his growth and development. Thank You Little People Academy for taking such great care of my baby!!

My child has been going here for a while. This center really feels like home. The director and owner really care about the children they treat them as if they are a part of their families. I truly appreciate this center. Honestly they have improved my daughter's behavior she is a different kid since she has been going there. We are over joyed.
