Rated Review by Sujit M.
"Among many child care centers i have visited and toured and 3 child care my little one has been, this was great.
* The education was good and they took child's interest into consideration instead of forcing things on them.
* The place was very lighted, bright and spacious, a lot of space for the kids to do their individual activities and group activities.
* All of the teachers and staff were very polite, respectful and caring.
* Food was extra and not included in the price, it is both good and bad. Good for people that want a controlled diet, bad for people who want lunch everyday, hence the combined price in comparison to all inclusive child care was higher.
* Staff turnover was low, they have been their for couple of years their, I did not see any staff leave during the 1 year we stayed there.
* They have extended hours apart from school years.
* Above experience has been for a 3 year old to 4 year old, I have no experience in infant room, but the awesome experience can be extrapolated.

"Both my husband and I have been avid
fans since our first meeting with them in 2012. All of the sitters we've used through this service have been wonderful in terms of being timely, professional, courteous, kind and caring to our family. We have instantly formed relationships with the sitters we repeatedly request, and the owner (
) has always done a remarkable job in matching us with the perfect sitter.
Emails and questions to
are always answered promptly and thoroughly. The website provides up-to-date information and we love the online booking/payment portal. For ever new sitter, we've had the opportunity to meet them (days ahead of time) at our home which allows them to get to know our child as well as our child to get to know them.
Above all, we are so happy with the service we receive from our two favorite sitters -
M. and
- as well as the overall experience created by
. Our sitters take such care with our little boy. They don't just "watch" him, but actively engage with him through constant playtime and activity (which is needed for a 2-year old toddler boy).
In addition to being top-notch sitters, both of our sitters have always been on time and professional. They engage with us as much as our kiddo and that makes for such a wonderful overall experience.

"The service itself is wonderful -
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
is a genius at finding the right
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
and we loved our
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
. The problem with this service is that in the contract they have a blanket policy about what happens if your
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
leaves before 12 months (if you choose that service). They will help you find another
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
but if she stays longer than the original 12 months you have to pay another hefty fee after you have already paid a large
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
fee. In our case, our
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
resigned after 9 months because she was moving, not because she did not like working for us. So if they find us someone new that stays past 3 months, I would pay the service about $3600 more. I knew this when I signed the contract so I am not suggesting they were not upfront. I would just seriously consider whether this is a reasonable policy for your needs. For us, it was not and I wish I had listened to my gut and not gone with this service. Again, our
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
was great but she is leaving which must happen a lot which must be why they have this policy.

Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
is a life saver! We have used
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
three times in the past month and would highly (highly) recommend the service to friends and family.
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
(owner) is very professional and extremely responsive. She has hand selected a team of caring and professional baby sitters who are available for your childcare needs. Of the three times we've used
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
, only once did we have advanced planning; twice the scheduling was an emergency and both times
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
was able to bring a high quality sitter to our home to care for our children.
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
business model is
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
and straightforward. They charge a small "placement fee" for each appointment (credit card) and you then pay the sitter directly ($16/hr is what we pay…I believe…I might have to check with my wife on that one…). Regardless of the hourly rate, the sitters are professionals; there are no 16 year old high school kids here! All sitters drive themselves and have been on time for each appointment. Additionally, the sitters we've used have arrived at our homes with activities for the kids, fostering an enriching environment.
As I said at the start of my review, I highly recommend
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
for your childcare needs. You will be hard-pressed to find a more reliable, more professional, and more trustworthy placement/childcare firm in Central
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked

"This has been one of the best investments ever! I just cannot express how happy we have been with
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
's service, professionalism, responsiveness, & overall hard work. Within 5 minutes of my initial contact with her, she had already found a very qualified candidate. I had been searching for months! She also sent numerous other candidates, all of which we would have considered hiring. She communicated our expectations to each candidate & stayed within our budget. We did find the
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
for our family & would recommend
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
&
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
to anyone looking for a
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked

"A ton of staff turnover created an environment of chaos. My child was injured 4 times in 4 months. While I understand toddlers tumble, it was the lack of concern from staff that caused me such pain. Each incident was due to lack of staff supervising the children, as they are required to. The final time was so severe we had to rush our son to the emergency dept. No one from
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
even called to check on us to see how he was doing. During my meeting where I explained we would be pulling our son out, the staff admitted they have a great deal of improvements to make and have a great deal of trouble with staff members. It's hard trusting the care of my child with someone else, but
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
is not a safe or trusting place to care for your babies. My husband and I do worry about the safety of the kids that remain at the school. We do not recommend
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
to anyone.

"Great communication. Great new Mom tips and advice. They specialize in baby babies! Ages 3 months and up. You fill out all appropriate forms, they give you reference list for you to check. They only take six kids so when theres an opening, grab it! One of the owners is a neonatal/pediatric respiratory therapist so she really has loads of medical advice/siggestions!

"It was a great experience for us! It was my daughter's first time to be in a childcare facility since she was born. Not only did her teacher make her feel loved, she also taught her so much. She has only been there for about a month now and she is already learning sign language words and even how to sound the letters of the alphabet! I have never seen a staff genuinely care so much for the children and their families. I look forward to seeing my daughter continue to develop.

"Quite frankly it could not have gone worse with this
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
agency: We needed a
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
urgently for our two children after moving and contacted
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
. Albeit
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
the rep for Wisconsin was very nice and responsive in the beginning we had trouble from the get-go on getting a good match. Initially we got matched with Nannies that were about 4-5$/hr above Milwaukee
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
rate. Once we got some matches personalities, circumstances or work history did not work. Nannies either had kids at home and were highly limited in their work hour flexibility, they got "bored" in their previous jobs and now wanted to try this out or we're highly unexperienced. Eventually, due to time pressure we found a
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
that we thought was ok albeit not great. We quickly learned differently. Not only did this
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
manage to get our 2 year old to throw up within 30min of being alone by forcing her physically to take off her diaper, she also approached us with a "business opportunity" that
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
the
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
rep had offered her. Apparently
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
runs a pyramid scheme for perfume on the side and offers the
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
she brokers the "opportunity for some extra cash". I can't tell you how many red flags came for us. In our opinion, the
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
we hire and pay well, is primarily responsible to take care of and care for our children. It becomes a question for us when the
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
starts working on the side without discussing with us first and even more so, when it is a pyramid scheme brokered through the
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
agency! Needless to say, we let this
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
go and after another 3 success less matches, we asked
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
to refund us the success fee of $1,500.
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
was irate over this request, stating she was only getting started with nannies (10+
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
matches in) and it is ridiculous that we were concerned about the nannies distributing perfume on the side...she did confirm however that she was making money off the nannies' sales, making us wonder if she was in the business of offering the best child care for our children or profit maximization. We haven't seen our success fee back and aren't banking on seeing it, we do want to warn everyone looking for a
Turtle Creek Day Care Providers Provider Name Locked
agency though to not use this provider's services.
