When I first brought by daughter to the daycare, I was with my sister and we met with Lisa the program director. I work at 7am so this was the only daycare in the area that opened at 630am, which would allow me to get to work on time. Although the hours played a big part in me choosing this daycare, I also wanted to learn about the curriculum and different activities that they had to offer. Lisa then told us that she would not give us any information on the program until I paid the $750 deposit and fees because she didn't want to waste her time. My sister and I are both RNs and we definitely felt that she thought because we are two young black women that we did not have the money to afford it. Then she asked me if I had care for kids and was shocked when I told her that my salary is too high and I didn't need that type of assistance. Although I was extremely offended, I decided to go along because I had very limited options at that moment. The teachers are ok and because of covid they did not allow parents into the school so I never seen what the inside looked like. There is a parent teacher conference once a year which was very minimal in information about the curriculum, but my daughter is only 2 years old and my main focus was that she was able to interact with children her age since she is a covid baby and spent the first 2 years of her life at home. After that it was countless of terrible interactions with Lisa (the director). The one that stands out the most is that my daughter, who was not used to being in a structured environment such as school, would have tantrums at times. One day during pick up, instead of pulling me to the side to have a private conversation she decided to tell me in front of 2 other parents that my child was not "normal". She also stated that my daughter would "flap her hands" which we all know that is a sign of autism. I, my family, and her teachers at her center all said that they have never seen my daughter flap her hands. Lisa decided to lie and make up autistic symptoms on my poor baby. My 2 year old does have tantrums and did have a hard time transitioning so I decided to enroll her in early interventions. She had just made the cut to qualify but was not diagnosed as being autistic by her pediatrician (the doctor). Lisa decided to put that diagnosis on my child all on her own without any credentials to do so. I was extremely upset and I told Lisa that she should not do that to an innocent child. Being autistic is hard and falsely diagnosing someones child is just evil. So with the early interventions, my daughters therapist would have the sessions at the school. Come to find out that Lisa was talking badly about me to her therapist! There is no end to what this lady is capable of doing and for what? I have done absolutely nothing to her and she continued for 10 months to attack my character and try to find "problems" with my daughter. The only reason I stayed so long was because I was in a bind for childcare and had no choice to the point that I now have to rearrange my work schedule so that I could take my daughter out of there. The owner never approached me on the situation. She listened to every terrible thing Lisa said about me and wouldn't even speak to me when I would see her at pick up. The only way I can describe this establishment is ghetto and low class. They projected all their terrible traits on me and my daughter all because I am a young black woman holding her own. I have seen their interactions with the white parents and it was totally different. They are racist and classless and I beg you to not enroll your child in this daycare.

My daughter has been going there over a year and she enjoys being in school everyday. Her teacher is very attentive and kind to the children in the classroom, most of the times my daughter wants to stay longer when I pick her up. I definitely recommend this Early Learning Center for our children education.

I have both of my sons( 5 and 3) since September and they love going every day. They really enjoy themselves and I can tell and see that they are learning a lot and tell me and teach me things they learn...Most teachers are all amazing and they make us feel like we're family and are kind, respectful, and professional...they tell me and inform me and remind me of what's going on or when I'm close to payment date which is great for me...also there's a good discipline and as soon as we come inside there's a very good vibe...the kids are enjoying their day learning and having fun with their friends that when I pick them up to go home they don't want to go because they enjoying themselves. Also they have an App where you can check up on what the kids are doing and you get a daily report on what the kids have done and very often get pictures of their activities. I highly recommend and will continue with them.

this place is completely over full and they only have one bathroom for the two large classes they have on the 2nd floor. In addition to that the teachers have no patience for the young children they have there. Very sad.

I took a tour there and it seemed so calm. Then when my son started going there I seen alot of activity. The children were very active and misbehaving not listening. The teachers there can not control the kids and the directors just on there butts all day. when I came in the morning and when i pick my child up thats where I saw them. It is really sad. If I were you I wouldn't my child in that school. Also the people that work there should not comment..(insider) lol

My daughter has been attending Future Generation for 5 years for after care and summer camp. She looks forward to her summers and her experience at Future Generation each and every year. The teachers are warm and caring and she learns a great deal. The educational themes keep her brain active while she is not in school, and the best part is she doesn't even realize she is learning! Thank you Future Generation for allowing me to go to work every day with peace of mind knowing that my daughter is safe and loved.
