Our child attended Early Years (Gibsonia) for short time in the Fall of 2018. We were less than impressed with the facility. While the director was sweet and kind, we did not receive a warm reception from the infant room staff. We requested that our infant follow his home schedule, which was rarely observed. On more than one occasion, we were notified of illness in the older kid rooms and found children from those rooms in the infant room "visiting" when we picked up our child. Our child contracted two different strains of highly contagious Hand/Foot/Mouth in a two week period, reiterating that cleaning practices of handled/mouthed toys needs improvement. We ultimately opted for another childcare option and would recommend that you do the same.

Both of my school aged girls had attended this daycare and LOVED it! They still like to go back and visit with the the teachers.
As a parent, choosing this daycare was one of the best decisions I have ever made for my kids. From the infant room all the way up to the school age & after school program; They learn so much here and when it was time to start school, they were more than prepared. The staff is always so friendly and on top of things. I would recommend this daycare along with all of their locations to anyone.

My Daughter is enrolled at the Gibsonia Location and she LOVES it! She loves her teachers and friends. She looks forward to going to "school" everyday! The education she is receiving there is the best! I have no doubt she will be ready for Kindergarten after the education Early Years provides. I would highly recommend this facility.

It is saddening to see the recent posts on social media regarding our child care facility. We as a company, and myself as a director take great pride in offering high quality care, as well as a safe and nurturing environment.
When a staff member leaves, whether in a positive or negative manner, it leaves an impact on the center. We want to impart well wishes to our recently separated employee, and hope for continued growth in talents and abilities as you progress through your career.
As for us, we choose to remain positive, and we will continue to offer the high quality care that our children and parents have always expected and enjoyed.

I am Teacher at our Gibsonia location. I have been with Early Years for 3 years. I can tell you we take being in ratio very serious. I can also tell you we DO NOT pose the children for pictures. We are dedicated to teaching your children, helping your child grow. In our center we help with potty training. We use a sticker chart so when the go the get a sticker. even if the try the get something special. Our center is very clean, if we need supplies we tell our director and they get ordered right away.
when I have children I will be bringing them to Early Years not because I work there, the staff in each room are very caring kind and the help the children in everyway they can. I would recommend Early Years for employment and childcare.

I have children in this center. First of all it breaks my heart that false information is being said. My children have been with Early Years for 4 years Never have I ever seen any of the rooms out of ratio. The outside toys are not cones and basketballs They have bikes cars play houses a climber with a two slides. In the summer they have water play. My children grew so much with the staff They are learning so much Numbers shapes colors writing names. The staff there is awesome I feel like I'm leaving my children with family. It takes a special kind of person to work in childcare and I am thankful I found a daycare that cares so much! Thank you Early years for all you do for our children!

My 5 year old missed the kindergarten cut-off. We were extremely concerned that she wasn't going to be getting the education she is ready for. The teachers, curriculum and families are all wonderful. They work with her to make sure that she is always challenged. We are so thrilled that we found someplace that is so much more than daycare.

I have 3 children enrolled at Early Years. We have seen so much growth and progress over the years. The staff is highly trained and professional. I love that they talk to me one-on-one and my children aren't just a number! I would recommend this center to anyone who wants to be truly involved in their child's care.

This company and facility has been been amazing for my son. He is on the spectrum and has had a hard time with group settings, this changed at Early Years he is excited to go to school and see his friends and teachers and loves to talk about what he learned each day. I can not say enough good things about this company.

I worked at the Gibsonia facility. Rooms were kept out of ratio. Resources and materials were not always provided by the facility, especially food to match the menu posted for parents. Staff at times had to pay out of pocket so the children could have more than crackers for two weeks straight. Proper supervision is not given by some of the staff. The owner refused to buy new toys for outside and children had to choose from deflated basketballs and some cones. Staff was told to pose kids for photos that were not a reflection of what we had in the facility. Toys inside the building were mostly donated. Broken toys were kept as they cost too much to throw away. Cleaning materials such as sanitabs were not ordered for months at a time to sanitize the rooms properly. I would not recommend this facility for employment or for child care.

Hello everyone,

This negative review is by an ex-employee who left on bad terms. It is very unfortunate they felt the need to spread a false narrative.
1. Being in ratio is a top priority for us and we are not at out of ratio!!!!!
2. Like any school or business etc. we do occasionally run out supplies and we order them as soon as we can.
3. If a staff member decides to pay out-of-pocket for their supplies that is extremely unfortunate and unnecessary. Procedure is to talk to the director who will order supplies or talk to ownership who will order them.
4. In regards to people posing for pictures. That is completely ridiculous. I encourage you to look at our Facebook page and to see if the children and staff look like they're pretending to be happy.
5. Proper supervision is given by our staff. Our teachers are some of the best around and have been with us for years we love our teachers they do a great job!
6. Though we do accept some donations. We do not encourage them. We like to maintain a high quality at our locations and we prefer to buy brand new toys. The children in our care only deserve the best!!
7. We buy brand new toys when other toys break. We are routinely inspected by the DHS. State code requires us to remove all broken toys from the building when they break. We follow code very strictly.
8. We do our very best to buy supplies when they are requested. All of our locations are very clean and sanitary. The health and safety of the children in our care is very important to us.
9. I encourage you to do your due diligence and look at our website, go on our Facebook page, take a tour before deciding where to place your child or to be employed; based on a false and biased negative review.

Thank you so much for your time. I look forward to seeing you at the centers!!!
