I posted this Google review in regards to my experience with Shiny Penny:
"My child attended day care here for roughly month and has had a horrible diaper rash I have had to battle with the entire duration of her time at this school. I brought up the issue with multiple staff even the co director, Kristin, and nothing seemed to change. The most unprofessional and uncaring staff in town. I worked in childhood education for several years and am blown away by the way this situation was handled. When bringing up the issue to Kristin, the co-director, she gave me nonsensical reason as to why my child has had diaper rash solely while attending school there and when I told her a 1 year old doesn't get diaper rash from napping for 2 hours, I was met with her telling me "I'm not going to treat her staff this way" and that "I'm getting your stuff and your done" and proceeded to kick me out of the school. Don't waste the $200-400 on sending your child here if you care about your child and the level of care they receive."

The daycare center eventually replied to this Google review with this response:
" Hannah Sisk, thank you for that story. I'm sure you feel better after that rant and your unfounded report to DHS. Meanwhile, we are continuing to provide excellent child care to our Shiny Penny families, carrying on our 23 year tradition!"

This establishment is vindictive and predatory. You can tell by the way they respond to criticism of their establishment. Rather then try and make the situation right they victim blame and shame.I would not trust any good reviews you see. Most of their day staff was nice enough but the co-director, Kristin, was indescribably unprofessional and unhelpful. She should have Helped me get the care I payed for but just took my money and kicked me out into the street. I treated no staff any particular way and was probably even nicer than I should have been considering the state my daughters private area was in. This establishment should be ashamed. I know I am disgusted. They allow borderline abuse and definite neglect to occur just to make a quick buck at your expense.

We started sending our daughter to The Shiny Penny at one year old and have had such a positive experience. Everyone knows her name and has made us all comfortable from day one. Penny, Kristen, and all the teachers are fantastic! AND this daycare is so clean!

This center is absolutely wonderful. I wouldn't recommend any other place to take care of my child.

I have had my various children here at the penny the past 10 years from nursery thru prek. The staff is always friendly and accommodating and the c.f. enter is very bright and cheerful. My little Wyatt is here now in the 1 year old class and gets excited every time we pull up to the door. I would recommend this center to anyone.

PLEASE avoid sending your child/children to this daycare. There's a lack of communication between the staff and parents, the director is unprofessional, the classrooms are small, and there's a constant rotation of staff.
