"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.

How much should I pay my babysitter?

The average cost of a babysitter is $10 an hour, but a number of factors contribute to that wage. Be sure to consider these pointers before paying.

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
Turtle Creek 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,
Turtle Creek 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
Turtle Creek 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
Turtle Creek 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
Turtle Creek 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
Turtle Creek 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
Turtle Creek 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
Turtle Creek 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
Turtle Creek 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
Turtle Creek 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!!

We love it there. My daughter (now 7) is so excited to go and the kids and teacher love to have her come back to visit (they will even ask me when my daughter is coming because the all miss her). The Teacher/Owner even sends a birthday card to my daughter every year.
Here are some of the highlights of this childcare gem:
It is LICENSED!...More /> Teacher with Montessori background and Art Therapy training
Small and loving group environment (only 6 kids) allows for individualized attention for your children
Affordable rates - PT and FT!!!!
Very convenient location - Walking distance to Chase Lake Elementary and Swedish Hospital in
Turtle Creek Day Cares Provider Name Locked

Healthy meals included for all kids over 1
Non-smoking home with no indoor pets
Very nice backyard for outdoor playtime
I could go on and on and on - but hope you get the point.

I had
Turtle Creek Day Cares Provider Name Locked
come and sit for my children at my home for a wedding
that I couldn't find a sitter for. Before leaving we showed the sitter
they sent were all the kids games where that they loved Candyland and
Chutes an ladders, all the books, and what toys they liked.
While
at the wedding my husband received emails from Amazon letting us know
our children had watched SIX episodes of Bubble Guppies (at a cost of us
of 3.99 each). We left early from the wedding.
When we
arrived home we asked what the kids had done while away. We were
regaled with stories of Candyland and games and activities. No mention
of any TV. I was curious to what she would say so I asked if they had
watched any TV. The sitter replied" oh a bit." I walked away a little
upset. I came back and asked how much... "Quite a few episodes"
I
looked on our camera that we have for security and the TV went on less
than 20 minutes from when we left. The sitter was only watching them
for 4 hours while they were awake. So for $20.00 an hour plus a 15
dollar travel fee we got one good hour of care. On the surveillance
camera I also saw her looking through some stuff that we had on our
table.
I contacted the owner
Turtle Creek Day Cares Provider Name Locked
about this. Honestly, I
don't think she thought that it was a very big deal. In fact, she tried
to blame my son - it was him that had the remote. Yes, my son was the
one who pushed the button on the remote, but there was an adult there to
supervise- who was not supervising. She said that sitter was cooking
and that is why she was letting them watch TV. We had a thing of
Turtle Creek Day Cares Provider Name Locked
an
cheese and a
Turtle Creek Day Cares Provider Name Locked
that just needed to be warmed up.
On
review of the video- my kids were in no
Turtle Creek Day Cares Provider Name Locked
. The sitter was not
harsh or abusive. If you need a warm body to watch your children while
you are in town. They may be a decent option. I personally will not
use nor recommend this service to anyone.
The sitter we had
was acclaimed to have been one of their best and have worked with them
for quite a while. If this is how they "watch" children when they are
in a home with access to toys, games, and books. You can only imagine
what is going to happen when they are in a hotel room.
Incredibly disappointed.
Their services are $15 for the first child $5 for each additional child. Plus a travel fee for certain parts of the valley.
