"She was seeking a schedule of 35-40 hours a week. She arrives at our home daily and we pay her by cash or check once a week at an hourly rate of $20/hour. She" is cooks for my child, cleans up after him, does his laundry, puts him to bed, changes diapers, takes him on outings to the park or other fun activities and has taught him some Spanish.
is around 52 years old and is from
. She speaks English and is extremely active and full of energy to deal with high energy children.

"Daughter had fun, but parents were less than happy. First off, this is a lot of money for a really rustic camp. We had assumed that the camp would be as nice as" the faaaaaaar less expensive one our kids have attended in the past. But it's pretty sad. Bathrooms in a separate building, cabins with many bunks squeezed into a small space, scary-looking pool, dangerous-looking lights/ceiling fans in the screened-in rec room. It appears that the kids did a lot of fun activities, but this price tag is awfully high for what we could see. Also, our daughter gained 20% of her body weight in a month. How much she chose to eat is very much on her, but what kind of food was provided to make it possible? She says she saw some salads and carrot sticks, but that's it for fresh vegetables. And she had some
and apples. Everything else in the fruit/veg department was canned. The worst, though, was a frightening incident involving an adult male possibly having contact with our daughter. The director many times refused to answer our questions...was more interested in "fixing" problems he doesn't know anything about than fixing the one he's in charge of. And he wanted to talk directly to our daughter after camp....creepy! We still don't know what really happened. Our daughter says there was nothing, but then why did the director call us in a panic? We suspect that he made the whole thing up since he's not willing to talk about it now. We saw glowing reports about this camp online before we entrusted our daughter to
's care. I hope my review will help you avoid making a similar costly (in so many ways, money-wise least importantly!) choice for your child. (Note that this camp is called
for girls and White Eagle for boys.)

Camper care should be the first priority. They had great ideas for activities but very poor individual care. My 11yr old daughter returned with dozens of mosquito bits, despite having a full can of spray and $100 is the camp store to buy more. The staff did nothing to ensure camper were ready before going into the woods. She was also told to hold her bladder during the night and she wet her bed. Then the clothes stayed in her laundry bag for 3 days. A very disappointing 1st time experience.

Couldn't be better. We moved from Wake County and a daycare center setting to Orange County in 2011 and toured all the available daycare centers and in home daycares in the area at the time before deciding to send our boys to
Mantua Day Cares Provider Name Locked
. She is extremely caring, offers individualized care, and the boys love her. She handles any problems quickly, extremely professionally and with the utmost concern for the child. Educational programs are great, and both boys have really benefited from the low student:teacher ratio. Communication is great.

It's a wonderful learning environment. The classes are taught by a loving and professional staff, including the director,
Mantua Day Cares Provider Name Locked
. They also offer after class activities like soccer, dance, karate, piano lessons. It is not included in the tuition but for working parents it gives the children the opportunity to participate in activities they might not be able to do otherwise. I interviewed at least 10 other preschools and the
Mantua Day Cares Provider Name Locked
was by far the best fit for my granddaughter. She will be attending for the next school year also.

It Was a very bad experience working for them. It was my first time in childcare and I was so ashamed to be employed there after I was hired and seen how it was ran. My first day I seen so much it made me decide I would never send any of my children to a
Mantua Day Cares Provider Name Locked
center if they are ran at all like this one. The changing table and cots are never cleaned. On my first day I also witnessed a child being tied to a chair with a towel because she would not sit still, completely unacceptable! I brought it to the owners attention and nothing was done besides the towel was removed from that room the teacher was not removed but is still employed there. The baby room which is 6 weeks to 2 years old is ran by a 18 year old as a mom I personally do not want a childcare provided by an 18 year old who I have personally witness sit on here phone 7.5 hours of her 8 hour day on her phone. The baby room is the hang out for the baby room teacher, the teacher who tied the kid up, the owners daughter who just hangs out at the
Mantua Day Cares Provider Name Locked
and the owner of the center. They paint each others nails do hair, do whatever they please. As a place of business that is not appropriate. There are few children in that room under 1 and the ones that are under 1 sit in a swing all day long unless they are being changed or fed. I personally heard the director make a comment to the baby room teacher when she was holding a baby she said to her " I'm surprised you are even holding her I have never seen you hold her" If that was my child who was obviously being neglected I would not be happy. When I took this job the owner came to me wanting to employee me I told her I have a son with a some short term disabilities and requires a lot of doctors appointments and physical therapy etc. so if that was as issue I cant take the job she told me no issue at all. 2 months later I texted my "boss" because that is the only way she communicates at 6am my shift starts at 8am to let her know that the night before my car had broke down and I wanted to give her a heads up because I was finding a ride to work in case I was a little late. She responded and told me numbers are low just stay home (which means we are low on kids for the day). I responded and told her are you sure? She never responded so like she said I took the day off. I texted her about 3 hours later because it was pay day and asked her for my check so I could have my car fixed while I was off so there was no complications the next day. I called and texted multiple times throughout the day and got no response till 4:30 pm. The response that I received at that time simply only said checks are ready. I immediately went there to get my check not only to get my car fixed but I also have 3 children who I provide for alone, I also had a childcare provider I needed to pay as scheduled. I then went to the bank to get my check cashed and get what I needed to done to make it to work even though its now late in the evening. When I arrived at the bank it was closed. We have also received our checks by 1pm on pay day. So when I realized the banks were closed I returned to
Mantua Day Cares Provider Name Locked
to ask the owner what the deal was and why I was paid at 4:30 when the banks are closed and she knew what all I needed to get done and if there was any possible way she could cash it but when I returned she was gone. I attempted again to call and text still no response an hour after my last text I got a text message that stated this is not working out you need to much time off. Not only am I upset because I have a family to support and let her know the deal before I started she fired me through a text when I seen her 2 hours before the text. I have never met such an unprofessional person and been employed at such an unprofessional place. From my experience working here It would be very hard for me to ever send any of my children to a day care center now because of the bad I witnessed in this one. I hope I can save someone from using them as a childcare provider that place is not suitable to even be up and running!

Previously she cared for my children, but since they are all past the ages of needing her she only cleans. She is absolutely great with children, and raised her children & grandchildren. She is kind, patient, caring, and great with pets. She is very reliable and thorough. She has been working for me for 20 years, has a key to my home, and I would recommend her to anyone. She speaks English well, and is just very friendly. She truly loves what she does. She does light cooking, laundry, light clothing repairs, gardening, and does great housecleaning. She does it all!

AN EMERGENCY CALL WAS ANSWERED & COMPLETED IN 9/2014 WITH MATERIALS & SERVICES OF SECURITY ISSUES. WE HELPED THEM OPEN FOR THEIR LICENSE 9/2014 - WITH SECURITY ISSUES & PAYMENT WAS DUE UPON RECEIPT. WE RECEIVED A PARTIAL PAYMENT NEARLY 60 DAYS PAST DUE. WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE BALANCE DUE FOR MATERIALS & SERVICES COMPLETED IN GOOD FAITH. NO ONE HAS CONTACTED US TO MAKE PAYMENTS. THIS ACCOUNT IS HEADED FOR COLLECTIONS, DUE TO THE LACK OF PAYMENT RESPONSIBILTY.

Horrible Horrible Horrible.
BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! We had a
Mantua Day Cares Provider Name Locked
that started and quit within 2 weeks. She admittedly confessed to being on Valium and had a violent temper and mood swings. All the other parents that she met while in our employ at the kid's school and on playdates commented on her unprofessionalism and inattentiveness. The
Mantua Day Cares Provider Name Locked
was not vetted and lied about her skills. After paying our fee (commission for a full time permanent position), the subsequent replacement nannies sent by
Mantua Day Cares Provider Name Locked
were not qualified. One had less than two weeks experience. We asked for a partial refund based on the fact that the
Mantua Day Cares Provider Name Locked
at best was a temp, but they kept our money and didn't even bother to reply to our correspondence. Better off looking for another agency. We also had our attorney contact them but they never responded. It would have cost more money to keep pursuing a refund. Keep looking!!
