My son started at Childtime in July 2019 when he was just under 4 months old. My husband and I always felt that the teachers and caregivers were wonderful, and I never had any worry when I dropped him off there. When COVID hit last Spring, they closed for a period of time (As many places did), and he returned as soon as they opened back up in June (my husband and I both work outside of the home). Other than limited hours, everything continued on as normal, which was so welcomed with how chaotic the world was at that time. Knowing my son's days were remaining routine was a huge comfort. As he's grown into a toddler, he definitely has developed a bit of an energetic streak. This past March, it was brought to our attention that sometimes he struggled to transition between activities. We brought this up with our pediatrician, who assured us that this was very typical of his age. About 5 months went by, and the concerns from the daycare tapered, so we figured we were headed in the right direction. In August, it was brought up again by the Assistant Director (acting Director at the time), that our son's abundance of energy was sometimes problematic when in a full capacity room of other toddlers. I again immediately reached out to his pediatrician, who suggested that we contact early intervention, and also make him an ophthalmology appt. to make sure that his vision wasn't the cause of some of his behaviors. I was told by early intervention that based on the information provided to me by the daycare, he was not eligible for an evaluation because he was not developmentally delayed in any way. They even suggested that the daycare may not have all of the appropriate training in place. We also got the clear from the Ophthalmologist that his vision was fine. I passed this information on to the daycare and let them know that I still fully intended to speak directly with my pediatrician when I had my son in for his next regularly scheduled appt. 3 weeks ago on a Monday, we got a call that my son was having a particularly hard morning (the first time that this has ever happened), and we were asked to pick him up, which we did within 20 minutes. He had a great rest of the week that week and I was told every day at pick-up that he had a good behavior day. The following week my husband and I met with the Assistant Director in person to review some strategies to help my son with things such as personal space and self-regulation both in the facility and at home. We signed a "pledge" that we would continue to work with him, and we would reconvene in 2 weeks to see how he was doing. I left feeling grateful that they were taking such great care of making sure that my son was succeeding. At the 2 week follow up, we were told by the Assistant Director that he had not improved to the standard that they were expecting, and that our care was being terminated. This was never discussed as a possibility at the meeting 2 weeks prior, and my husband and I were taken completely off-guard. She did offer to let us stay an additional 8 days, but of course we were not going to keep him in that situation if they felt that he wasn't a positive part of his room. My husband has since spoken with the District Manager, who told him an evaluation of our son was done by someone outside of our building, but within the Childtime organization, in those 2 weeks. We were never made aware of this, and did not give our consent to have that take place. When my husband asked on what day and time this occurred, the district manager was not even able to tell him. This infuriates me. This is completely and utterly inappropriate. While I can appreciate and accept that my son may ultimately do better in a situation with a smaller group, I cannot get over how poorly and unprofessionally this has been handled. I am also due with another baby in less than 3 weeks, who I had planned to begin sending there early next year. I NEVER leave reviews like this, but would not be able to walk away from this situation without making others aware of what we have been through this week. I honestly cannot recall a situation where I have felt this disrespected, and do not feel that this is any way to treat people who have been a part of your "family" for over 2 years. With that being said, I do not think that the leadership at this facility is properly qualified, and I cannot in good conscience recommend Childtime given the way that this was handled.
