This daycare is by far the WORST daycare I have ever seen... Where do I begin....well let's start with the big stuff... I went to drop my children off at 5am before work, and there was a lady whom I had never even met or was informed about sitting outside smoking, I tried opening the door, and realized that she was the daycare teacher that shift, when she told me to go get my kids set in and she will be right in... First of all she left the kids unattended while she was smoking. Second of all we don't know eachother, I could have been anyone and she was willing to let me in and just bring my kids in and settle them in myself.... She then attempted to put my child on another kids sleeping cot, no change of sheets or anything, needless to say I didn't even let my kids stay that morning. On top of that everyday I went to pick my kids up the workers could never find my kids belongings, I can't tell u how many days my kids went home without shoes or jackets because the teachers lost them. On top of that they used my diapers and wipes on other peoples children..... No need to go through 80 diapers in one week that is beyond rediculous, and I walked in and seen kids with my child's diapers on. Third, between the teachers playing in my child's hair and then just laying kids down on the same covers and mats without changing sheets my child caught head lice which was a nightmare to get rid of. They ALWAYS had all ages of kids mixed. Which is really unsafe. They used the tv to baby sit the kids for them. And a few times I walked in with both of my children siting in a high chair in front of the tv almost as to restrain them from moving from the tv. Sometimes I heard the younger "teachers" who were sometimes younger then 18 even making fun of some of the kids. After a month of my children being enrolled in this daycare I immediately took them out and switched to a better daycare. The daycare is very expensive for such EXTREME POOR kids! I apologized to my kids over and over again for having poor judgment and sending to that zoo call 24 hour little people acamdemy. Please note that if there are any good reviews on this daycare I am almost positive it had to ba a fake review from the daycare itself. No way in HELL would any right minded person call this a good daycare. It's really sad. I am almost tempted to report them to the state because they are so pathetic and unhealthy. Word of advice, whenever searching for a daycare, pop up through out many different parts of the day without prior notice, it gives the daycare no notice to hide all of their ugliness and that way u can tell if it is a horrible or a good daycare.

I have been taking my children to Little People for about 3 months now and we have recieved quality care. I enjoy listening to my 4 yr old tell me about all the things she has learned through their program. They clearly have redirected my childs attention in a positive direction because she has not been acting out lately. It has been a good experience for me and since I work 2nd shift of course it's convenient!

Notice that the 3 "wonderful" reviews happen to be written 3 days apart from on another. Yeah, right. Obviously the owner wrote them. This place is horrible.

This place is dark and scary. It's really cheap but you get what you pay for. I showed up unannounced to check it out. They had infants unattended in the front room in front of a TV, the child teacher/child ratio was about 15/1 (I don't think that's legal), when I asked about school age childcare, they said they only go up to 5 years old but as long as I bring my school ager after 5 it would be fine because state usually comes before 5pm. If you are willing to bend the rules that, what else will you bend the rules for? Then, to top it all off, they have a big sign in the filthy bathroom that reads "Do NOT scream at the children". Really? It reminds me of the daycare from the Will Smith movie Pursuit of Happyness (happiness was spelled wrong at the daycare and the kids watched Love Boat all day, but it was really cheap and he couldn't afford to take his child elsewhere). I honestly think that the other "positive" reviews that were posted were probably staged by the owner. The first review where the child was neglected and covered in pee is more accurate. When I went to the next daycare to take a tour and shared with them what I had seen, they told me that they have heard of scary stories about this place and have received a lot of children from there. Don't waste your time checking it out, I already did that for you, or if you don't believe me, show up unannounced and see for yourself! Ps. I wouldn't give it any stars at all but this website wouldn't let me post this without rating it.

My 2 year old went here for a couple weeks, i worked late, there was a couple things that i had a problem with, their door was never locked during the day. The second day i droped her off, a teacher gave me the price for 3 days a week for 3 weeks. I said no that cabt be right. The main lady uped me $5 on my daily rate. And couldnt tell me . Told it to the techrt. So i got over that whatever. Then one night going to pick her up, she burst into tears seeing me i picked her up and she was soaked in her pee, still in her jeans. Then the lady who iv never seen in my life says "oh is she potty trained" she was with her for 5 hous! How do you not know if shes potty trained. Didnt say sorry or anything. My daughter's face and nose were crusty from crying all day and not being cleaned up. Her jeans were soaked with pee. I never went back after that night. This place is terribly. With staff that do not look after your kids. I had to ask every day what did she do what did she eat. And they keep their toys behind a door. And my daughter would talk about the other room. Very odd.

My husband and I ABSOLUTELY love Little People Academy and could not ask for more loving and better qualified people to take care of our son!!! I visited other centers before choosing Little People Academy and didn't feel the love or warmth that I felt when I entered and I knew that my baby was in caring hands. Not only do they provided a learning plan to help my little one develop but they have also helped me in different aspects of his growth and development. Thank You Little People Academy for taking such great care of my baby!!

My child has been going here for a while. This center really feels like home. The director and owner really care about the children they treat them as if they are a part of their families. I truly appreciate this center. Honestly they have improved my daughter's behavior she is a different kid since she has been going there. We are over joyed.

We really needed a special daycare for our son. They opened their doors We feel truly blessed that he has been a part of such a friendly, welcoming place. The progress he has made in the last six months has been unbelievable! he has come a long way and I have them to thank for that.
