We've sent our girls to Rosa for 4 years now and have had nothing but a great experience. My daughters have learned to sing, dance, sign, swim, speak a little Spanish, share, treat their friends with love, take care of their baby dolls, and just be fun-loving kids under Rosa's care. Rosa has become like family to us. She loves and spoils our girls as if they are her own and has been such a blessing to us that we call her our fairy godmother.

Rosa response to Tabu...Your child was in better care here than in Moms nervous hands..you have a wonderful little boy..."NONE" but one of your claims are true...the gloves...you should have looked in the lost and found at the entrance. I will keep him in my prayers...I TRULY love all...every single one of my little ones...they are all special in there own little way...

I am Rosa..I don't answer these bogus reviews since that's what they are.. I trust that parents are understanding and reading between the lines on some of these..but parents are just not taking it lightly and have put it in front of me to respond: Better O. is an employee terminated for a few practices in her review ...Sorry ET...I'M here overlooking and or listening in...That's why your not here and I do hope you stay away from children all TOGETHER...This is not a paycheck...in this career you need to realize you have the future of each child in your hands....not all children are the same and some basics may apply to all but each child is an individual who needs his/her own guideness and you need to Love the child and what you do...
I hope this was a learning lesson....

My daughter has been with Rosa since 2011 and I have never had a problem with how she runs things. My child learned sign language, eats all day to the point I had to ask if she could cut down feeding her so she would want her dinner. She is always flexible and the staff she has had in the past ( some good and some bad) if they are not taking care of the children properly then she will let you go. I don't know where these bad reviews are coming from and I profusely disagree and find it really sad for other parents to bash the daycare so badly. It's always clean and the kids are taken care of like they are her own.

orst place to have your child. Rosa the owner is neuritic. She treats the staff like servants. Only shows up in the morning and before pick up. Has her dog there all the time. No fresh air the place us dark and dingy with dust. She takes naps in her office all the time. Not mention she charges the parents and arm and a leg and makes promises she won't keep she doesn't hornor your child dietary needs. And does not provide a emotionally stable center. She bribes and conditions the older children with treats and says that Rosa is the best.. she talks bad about the children and called the spoil and brats while smiles at the parents. She doesn't allows the staff to convey information to parents. She's is simply a disgrace.

WORST DAYCARE IN THE CITY. STRICTLY AVOID.

YOUR KID WILL BE BETTER AT HOME RATHER THAN ANYWHERE NEAR ROSA.

I AM GIVING ONE START COZ I CANT GO BELOW IT. FOR ME IT SHOULD BE -VE NOT EVEN ZERO.

My son (3 yrs) was going to this daycare last year. Initially the owner, Rosa, promised to look after my kids and help him with lot of things.

I was told she will help my son get pee & potty trained, will help my son learn few basics academics, will help him start eating by himself.

SHE DID NOT DO ANY OF IT.

Forget about doing the most basic things, many times they did not even change his diapers. She never cared if my son ate anything.

Poor kid, he did not eat anything from 08:15 till 12:30 while being in daycare.

He lost 8 lbs of his weight while being in this daycare.

I have seen other small kids around in the daycare. Many times i have seen them being on their own, crawling in the daycare & putting lot of stuffs (including mop) in the mouth. Rosa looks at them & then turns her face away as if she does not care.

She likes talking bad about other kids. I am pretty sure she wold be doing the same for my kid in front of others.

She is a 2 faced lady.

When you will be there, she will try to show that she loves your kid very much & that he is the only one she cares for. However moment you are out of daycare, she gives a dam care about your kid. Many times other parents told me that my kid is crying when i am not there & Rosa does not care about it.

Initially she told us that she has a teacher in the daycare & that teacher will be teaching kids a lot of academics stuff.

Reality is she does not have any teacher. Just one helper, who looks after kids younger that 1 year old. That's it.

Worst has started now. If you are not there to pick up your child exactly on time (on dot), your kid will be standing out of daycare with his bags on his shoulder till you reach there.

She does not have even a basic courtesy to make kids sit inside the daycare till the parents reach. On top of that his bag will be on his shoulder. Poor kid.

I now have video evidence for the same & am making a formal complaint to the authorities.

She does not shy from lying to you. Last week when I reached to pick up my kid & he was out, I wanted to talk to her. Her helped told me that she is not in & I should call her.

I was returning when I saw parent of other kid outside the gate. She told me that she just talked with Rosa & since then no one has come out from the daycare. How come she is not there ?

I was baffled & very angry. I went back & called her. She came out saying, I dont want to talk to you. You go now.

I was very angry with this behavior of her's.

My kids gloves has not been returned by her since last 3 days. I have been reminding her & she does not want to return it? SH*T woman.

AVOID THIS DAYCARE AT ALL COST.

In Dec '14 there were about 15 kids. Today there are not even 5.

Everyone has moved out because no care is taken for the kids. That's precisely the reason she takes kids all year round (no one continue over here for long).
