General School Comments: From the Parents


  • Parent # 1

    While I was pregnant, my husband and I researched and visited several daycare facilities in the Melbourne and Palm Bay area. After touring each one, we were left with the feeling that we just could not imagine dropping off our daughter there. That is, until we visited Jelly Bean Junction. We are both admittedly extremely picky and have very high standards for who would be taking care of our infant. We walked into Jelly Bean Junction and breathed a sigh of relief. The center is very clean, the staff is very professional, the teachers very caring, and the hands-on owners take pride in ensuring the curriculum is up-to-date. Our child has now been at this center for just over 6 months, and our impression now is better than our first impression. They encourage you to "drop in" to visit your child. I have done so on many occasions and I have always been pleased with the reception I receive and the nurturing I witness. There really isn’t more that you can ask for!

    It's a nice center but the staff needs to take a class on compassion. It ripped my heart out the last day I had to leave my child in this hell hole.

    They give children time-outs that last hours! they verbally abusive towards the kids and they are just not nurturing especially Nicole and susana they treat the kids bad! I use to work there so I know what its like when parents leave. They treat employees awful too! I now work at Montessori and its soo much better! I feel sorry for the kids that go to JellyBean Junction!
