    DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILD HERE

    My son was at this daycare for awhile. One day I came to pick him up. In nice weather, the teachers tend to take the kids out back to play, so when I got there, the teacher didn't know I was there at first. Emily, a teacher there was SCREAMING at a child playing in the backyard. It wasn't my child, but I can guarantee there is nothing a small toddler could do to deserve being screamed at. I informed the director and all she did was nod and say "Sorry". I filed a report with the licenser and I removed my child the next week because I never wanted that to be my child screamed at.

    Unorganized, rude, dishonest childcare

    To start with, I have absolutely nothing against the teachers here. My son loves Ms. Becca and Ms. Kacie. They were the only reasons I stayed so long. The administration is the most unorganized I have ever seen. My son was only there for 5 months. The second month, I received an invoice for $295 more than what the contract I signed said. The director wrote it off as a mistake. The second month I was there, my son caught impetigo from one of the teachers. The third month I was there, I brought in a check for the month (we had been paying with checks since we started). All of a sudden I was informed that they don't accept checks and I had to pay in cash. Then, finally in May I received an invoice for the regular monthly amount. I paid the invoice and then at the end of the month the owner tried to tell me that she had increased her rates and I owed money from the month of May. It took me a month and 5 days to finally get an answer from the director and the owner. I had contacted them every week to try and get an answer. When I finally did, they told me that I owed the remainder from May. I refused to pay for something I had an invoice stating a different amount. The owner told me that I shouldn't come back the next day (even though she had just taken my money for the month of July earlier that afternoon). The owner then refused to refund my money. I highly recommend staying away from this place.

    Went downhill fast

    I took my son here for 2 years, the director and main teachers for him were great, but over the course of a few months all of the staff was turned over. The director and main teacher walked out b/c of poor treatment by the owner. The new staff were inexperienced and inattentive. My son came home upset b/c one of the teachers had shamed him for having an accident. Kids were calling him names. He came home with unexplained cuts on his face and arm that had dried crusted blood on them, not cleaned up at all. I saw kids coming in from outside not washing hands, not washing hands after using the restroom and upon arriving at the center. The staff did not instruct them to do so. Too many kids in a room with all ages (infants and small toddlers in a room with legos spread all over the tables), 1 staff member in the kitchen leaving the kids alone in the front room with access to open the door and walk out at any time. My kiddo went from happy to be at school to not wanting to go back, cranky, whiney, angry, etc. Don't take your kid here.

    Wonderful Care and Preschool

    Our experience at Learn and Grow has been wonderful! They allow part time care and are flexible with extra time needed (cost is reasonable too)! My son has learned a lot and made friends (social skills, letters, numbers, colors, cutting, tracing, letter formation, shapes). The teachers really care about the kids! The director has passion and sees that the days are fun! Great nature playground!!

    Very Happy with the Professional Friendly Staff!

    I am very picky about who watches my child! I did a lot of tours and research before picking Learn and Grow. I am extremely happy with Learn and Grow and know many other families will be too! We have almost been there a year, and we are thankful for this wonderful center! Learn and Grow went through some VERY important staff changes in March of 2009! I am thrilled that I toured again (wasn't fond of previous staff (unprofessional)), meant the current staff, and selected this wonderful place! The staff that they have are educated, friendly, professional (yet personable) and exhibit KNOWLEDGE about early childhood needs. The Director has over 20 years of experience, has a college degree, and exhibits passion for children and families. The facility is clean, organized, licensed, and truly child friendly. Yet it is quaint without the sterile appearance and approaches that corporate centers often have. I appreciate that the staff show genuine care and concern for me, my child, and our family. I also like that this center charges less than a lot of others, but still offers top-notch care! I recommend Learn and Grow!

    i took my child here and in 6 months there were 10 different staff members and the only reason i kept my son there was because there was 2 staff members that my child loved. i dropped off my child in the morning and gave him a kiss goodbye. mid morning i got a phone call saying that my child was at l&g with people that he did not know because for no reason the staff members were let go. i had to call a family member to go pick my son up. my son has asthma and the next day he was throwing up and chould not breath no thanks to the owners all they care about is money not the wellfare of the children. i dont even think they knew he had asthma.

    My child was extremely happy at L & G until the staff was suddenly replaced mid-day. The parents were not informed of this change and the new staff was unfriendly and cold to the children. I arrived to find my child asleep on a plastic mat with no sheet. He begged not to go back. The owner would not provide me with info to locate the former staff so my child could say goodbye. The owner will not return my calls. I pulled him out that day. Avoid this daycare. Any L&G parents that have left due to new staff please contact me revolucinations@gmail.com

    Worst in Town!

    There were 4 dif. teachers that quit in a two month period of time. The two that my daughter loved were fired during the day, my child was left with people that did not have background checks, and the owner who was pompus over the phone. When I called to check on my daughter, he did not know who she was. I had to leave work early to get my child away people I have NEVER met. They do not know the first thing on how to run a daycare and how to treat the parents, there employees, and the children. I really hope you do not take your child here.
