Owner is superficial in the beginning (says all the things you want to hear); as time wears on, concerns brought up, and parental input given they become more and more rude, condescending, and lack accountability. Had the audacity to say "I bend over backwards for you parents," which is laughable when they close for any reason and decrease hours but not tuition. Then when presented with legitimate provable concerns, tried to insult me but couldn't even do that right.

Our issues included:
-Misled about hours; they changed thier hours since COVID to 9am-4p which leaves 7hrs for commuting as well as working. Not sure who has that kind of work schedule but certainly not us. On google, Basic beginnings own website, care.com, and even their own intake papers the hours are 6:30a-6pm. This was a huge deciding factor as my job requires flexibility in scheduling and can often leave late.

-No parents allowed in the center at all-other centers do with Covid, that makes me feel uncomfortable...every center I've heard of has a welcoming, open door. Not that I've ever shown up unannounced/out of typical schedule but just knowing I can is assuring that there's nothing to hide.

-My child attended for 6mo. In the beginning hated, it cried when we drove up-didn't matter who dropped her off, this did calm down a bit after about 3mo but she was never walking in smiling. And even 5-6mo in (towards the end) she would still say "no" when driving to BB.

-Then the week after Christmas there was an email received on a Sunday night (LESS THAN A DAY before opening) that a COVID outbreak which "effected everyone in the center". Instead of saying, we will ask parents to test their child and ofc the positives quarantine but the negative children may return so as not to cause disruption/hardship on families/children's schedules-THEY CLOSED FOR A WEEK.

-Care concerns such as incidents where she was picked up with a horribly pooped diaper, rashes since starting there (she was in home care for a year prior and never had even a pink bottom), and runny nose with mucus crusted all over her face-I have pics. Approach staff and met with excuses and deflection.

-Got RSV. When we went to pediatrician to be Covid tested she was negative. Pediatrician asked anyone else sick at home-nobody was. She said does she go to a daycare as it's "rampant in daycares right now." When we reported to BB (Nona) she admitted there were multiple kids out sick w RSV and went on and on about how clean they are. Never asked about child.

3mo in the teacher approached me surprised with the fact my dgt knew her numbers-why did it take you 3mo to realize? They don't go outside enough, 50 degree days and I'd pick her up indoors, that's not cold with a jacket in New England. No projects sent home, except Christmas we did get one project item and pictures which was nice...but all other papers sent home are always free draws/recycling. Teacher blew kisses once and my child who is able to wave/blow loses/say bye looked at her confused-felt unauthentic/forced.

They don't teach children anything. Yell all day and are unprofessional insensitive. Don't greet parents don't communicate. Your better off leaving your child with a 13 years old than leaving them in the care of this daycare. Waste of money in my opinion.

I have sent both my girls to this center since they were 9months old. I felt so comfortable with everyone there taking care of my girls. They are like family to us know. And we always keep in touch
