Today is mommy day and I figured why not take the time out to say how thankful my child and I am for Ms. Muhamad. She is my child's teacher at the day care. She always greet me with a friendly smile on her face. She takes time out of her daily schedule to sit every day with me to discuss how my son day was. My child always tells me how he loves her. Thank You So Much Ms. M!!!!

Hi

I wanted to share with all the parents how impress I have been with this childcare. They send you weekly emails updating you on you're child progress, and also pictures. The weekly emails also update me on things happening at the center. I'm so Impress with these weekly updates. It makes me feel like I'm taking part in my child's educational growth.

Hi

I have worked for this childcare for over five years now. I love waking up in the morning knowing I'm going to make a difference in a child's life. I provide a daily lesson plan that is structured, and makes learning fun. I know that I'm making a positive difference in my childrens life's by seeing the smiles on their faces. My work environment is safe, and Happy. I'm so thankful for this day care.

First and fore most a lot of these negative response are from angry and lazy employees who are very money hungry and really don't even care about the other children's well being and mad because they thought they was going to work a easy job and found out that it was going to be work and angry parents who basically didn't get their way either with they co-payments because they really didn't want to pay a dime thinking that daycare is free also try to leave their children or baby at a center for over 12 hrs and get mad about the late fee they knew all about but wanted to act confused when given it because they left their children for and extra 3 hours. because how can you say they never cut their grass and the back yard is always dirty a week ago when there is no grass and the children are the only ones allow in the playground not parents per DCFS standard guide stating that they have to be fingerprinted. Only thing I'm saying that you the person who is reading the reviews please don't pass up on an opportunity just because some people where mad about something they did because think about it if they knew the daycare was that bad why was they children here for so long. Mind you i know all these parents and employees that reviewed.

My experience working for this daycare was very bittersweet. Enjoyed working with the children but overall the daycare is very unpleasant. The owner is a con artist it's all about money for her! she is barely there and does not interact or show much interest in the kids. For example, there was a pizza party held in which the owner asked all parents to pay a fee In order for the child(ren) to participate and receive pizza that would be ordered from a pizza place. Instead, Oven cooked pizza was served to the kids in the daycare! So what was the purpose of making those parents pay a fee? Treats certain employees like crap while showing favoritism to a few. Very unorganized and unprofessional place of business. Has mice and bugs within the daycare. I personally have seen mice within the kitchen area. Certain employees leave the kids soaking wet with soiled clothing and leaves other employees to pick up the slack! Kids are fed the same snacks every single day gold fish or cookies. Urinated clothing does not get washed out properly instead they are being tossed in the dryer and placed back on the children. I could go on and on about the many issues in this daycare the owner is only about a dollar bill she doesn't care about the children or her employees.

This place is not somewhere you want to send your child. Not enough staff per classroom, inexperienced teachers, no director ever on site and it stinks not a good environment or school it should be closed down.

I'm very dissatisfied with this daycare, they are very unprofessional from dealing with the parents, and the children. My grandson has been attending this day car for 4 months , and they still haven't filled out the paper work for my grandson to be able to transfer to another daycare. Every time I go to the day it's 4 or 5 babies screaming, they don't have enough staff for all the babies they have.. and on top of that every since my grandson has been attending this daycare , he stays sick has some kind of virus, and ear infection, and stays with a cold.my grandson is a really good baby, but like most babies who doesn't feel good he gets a Little irritable, but nothing worse than going to pick your baby up and the staff makes you feel bad, because he's been crying.. making comments like you must sit up and hold him all day. Because he expects you to hold him all day . For a parent trying to work, they make you feel bad, to the point you don't want to leave your baby. And not only that they lose your babies stuff.. I brought a can of milk in one morning, and when I went to pick him up the whole can was gone , and no one could explain where all his milk went.whats even more unprofessional, they close the daycare when ever they feel like it , without enough notice.. that's why the parents send their children to daycare, because they don't have anyone to watch them .. now it's to the point the daycare is jeopardizing your job. If you are working you can't take off when ever they feel like closing.. this is the most unorganized , unprofessional daycare.. please don't trust this daycare with your babies.

I HAVE BEEN AT REACH FOR THE STARS FOR 1 YEAR NOW, I FIND THE STAFF TO BE HIGHLY INTELLECTUAL AND WELL DIVERSE, I AM ALWAYS EARLY MORNING WITH A SMILE BY THE OWNER, THE TEACHERS ENFORCE THE CREATIVE CURRICULUM PROGRAM LESSON PLAN. A LOT OF THE STAFF ALWAYS GO OUT THEIR WAY TO ASSIST ME. I AM HAPPY WITH THIS DAYCARE, AND MOST IMPORTANT MY CHILD IS HAPPY TOO.
