Do Not Support This Daycare
1. If a child is noticeably sick they don't send them home. They wait until the child is dangerously ill (fever, vomiting, diarrhea)

2. They keep the food right next to the garbage.

3. The owner is rude and defensive when you make a complaint

4. Consistently serve repeat snacks instead of buying groceries and only serve 2 vegetables and 2 fruits ever. Many snacks do not cover two food groups. Sometimes they serve the same thing twice in one week and all their food is no name brand (cancer causer).

5. Washroom is far away and requires a staff to leave the room for an extended period of time

6. Have never seen toys being cleaned

7. There is no indoor area for physical activity so if the weather is poor the children go stir-crazy

8. Went there for three years almost never saw the owner buy new toys. Many of the toys and books etc are extremely old as a result. In fact when I asked a staff about it she told me when she wants new toys she has to buy them herself out of her own paycheque.

This is all true and though the owner may now come on here and reply saying it's because I'm an angry customer I am not. My child loved this daycare despite all of this which is why I stayed for so long. But none of this is a lie, there are many many things that need to change about this place for the sake of the children being raised here.

Very nice daycare
I enrolled my children in this daycare 3 months ago. My kids are very happy there. There are days where I want to pick them up and they want to stay.

The staff are very friendly. The centre is very clean. They have a cleaning schedule posted where everyone can see it.

I only met few parents so far, and they all spoke positively of their experiences at this daycare.

Very Unsanitary Daycare
I withdrew my child immediatly from this daycare, unchanged diaper on several occassions, I would go in the morning and the place was dirty, carpets unvaccumed, toys not sterilized, tables not wiped, floors not cleaned from the day before. Childrens faces left dirty. In 2 weeks my child was bitten, hit over the head with a toy,had severe diaper rash and I called it quits. There is good places out there that love and take care of the children properly, this place is not one of them.

Danielle, I understand that you are trying to revenge because you refused to pay the fees and you got so angry of having to deal with a collection agency.

You had only taken your child once with a dirty diaper because she did it the minute you arrived, and you know that this happens. You could have asked them to change it before you took her. The rash claim is not true, you should have proved it by at least showing the director.

After your complaints, the health inspector made us a visit, and he said: the room is "perfectly clean". We got a written report to prove it. I suspect that your standards come from a different planet.

I remember you had said to me the same comments about the other daycare you pulled your child from before registering at our daycare. I wouldn't recommend that you keep moving your child to a different daycare every few weeks because that's not fair to your child.

At First Choice Daycare, we have many many happy parents, and luckily we don't encounter more than one parent like you each year.

I also suggest that you and your husband make better use of your time than posting this same comment over and over at every web site you know.
