General School Comments: From the Parents

    My girlfriend’s daughter had been enrolled there for the 3rd week. Monday my girlfriend goes to pick her daughter up and Jenny, the owner, is there, which we hadn't met before. My girlfriend asks how her daughter was today and the owner proceeds to rudely inform my girlfriend that her daughter 'Was a brat". Which we all know, kids can sometimes be, but no reason for her to call her names, especially in front of her and other kids. This morning, Tuesday, we call the daycare and tell them we were pulling her out of their daycare for this very reason. The teacher who is there every day, which does a good job, tells us that she wasn’t sure what the owner deal was, that my girlfriend daughter was an angel yesterday. She also informed us that this isn't the first time she has had parents complain about the same issue. She also mentioned that oddly it was always the little girls and never the little boys. That would explain to why they only had 1 other girl and 14 boys enrolled. Needless to say, we will not be going back to this daycare. One other note they didn't mention prayer in their schedule either. Last Friday we set down for dinner and she asked to pray before dinner, which was very odd since we have yet to discuss religion with her. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Jenny the owner is very rude and unprofessional.
