  • Brandi is an excellent daycare provider.  She has taken care of my daughter since she was 10 months, and my daughter and I love her very much.  She is very kind, friendly, and loving with all the children and a great educator.  She has a very helpful and caring staff.  The daycare center is in a great location and is always clean and organized.  They always have great prices and I would highly recommend brandi for anyone looking for a daycare center. A++++

  • They toured them and went in the classroom for a couple of hours. It's a four days a week, full day for schooling, don't do field trips but they bring outside people in like a reptile man, magician, dentist, and stuff like that, and snack but you provide you're own lunch. It's a very professional environment where they encourage children and obviously patient.

  • The facility is very clean and they decorated the area with fun colors that is pleasing for kids.  They were easy to deal with.  I have no complains at all.  I am very satisfied with their work and I will surely use their services again in the future.

  • LARGE ADULT SCISSORS IN THE CHILDREN'S REACH MORE THAN ONCE!. I would have written a glowing review for this business up until recently. We loved it and thought the educational value was superior. As a teacher myself I really valued my kids being in this educational setting. Furthermore, it is a beautiful, clean facility with impressive outdoor play areas. 3 things happened in February-March 2012 in our 3 year old’s preschool class that drastically changed my opinion. I will start with the most shocking:
    1.) SCISSORS/SAFETY VIOLATIONS: I was usually in and out in about 2 minutes during pick up and drop off. One day my son said he had to use the restroom when I was picking him up. While I was waiting for him I noticed adult sized scissors lying on the low counter where the children wash their hands. I am not an over-reactor by any means. It was brought to the teacher’s attention but I didn’t make a huge deal about it. About a week later my son was showing me something and I was shocked when I noticed the scissors lying out again. I informed the director about it this time. After going down to the room herself and checking it out, she thanked me for bringing it to her attention. She also added that the teacher was not aware that she could not leave scissors lying around. This actually scared me more. This means those scissors had probably been out just about EVERYDAY and I just was always in and out so quick that I didn't notice. She assured me that it would not happen again now that the teacher was aware but I just kept wondering “what else does this teacher not know that I assume (as the person I was trusting to keep my kid safe each day for 8+ hours) that she knows.” I wasn't willing to take any chances and wait to find out. We did not send our sons back to Primrose after this incident. I also contacted the ODJFS who oversees childcare facility licensing and they said that this is a reportable state safety violation.
    2.) BULLYING: My son was being bullied by a group of 4 boys. When I mentioned my concerns about the “bullying” to his teacher one day during pick-up she didn’t seem to think there was a problem. Things continued that concerned us so we brought up our concerns with management who tried to smooth things over by telling us that 3 year olds are too young to have malicious intent and bully. I am a teacher and a couple of weeks after management had made this comment to me, we had a professional development session about bullying for the staff at my school. The speaker said that bullying starts at age 2. Some quick internet searches yielded similar info. I am very confident that my son was in fact being bullied but I understand that it is a subjective point to argue but here is the bottom line: When I had concerns about my son getting bullied, management’s response was actually a denial of the problem and inaccurate information. If they were not acknowledging the possibility of bullying then how could I expect them to do anything about my concerns I shared with them? I am very upset about the fact that the bullying was going on but here I am pointing out that Primrose's response was not acceptable. You can't fix a problem that you aren't acknowledging.
    3. TALKING BAD ABOUT STUDENTS TO PARENT OF OTHER KIDS. My son got bit by another student and I had to sign an incidence report at pickup one day. As the teacher was explaining the incident and asking me to sign she said to me that she thought that the student who bit him had “mental problems” and “just wasn’t quite right”. I was completely bewildered at this unprofessionalism. As a teacher, I can’t imagine ever talking about one of my students to another parent. Not to mention that there are laws (FERPA) that prohibit the sharing of information about other students. Did the teachers talk about my son to other parents?
    Primrose looks great on the outside. My sons spent 8+ hours there a day but I was only seeing a small glimpse of what happens during my quick drop off and pick up times. From what I saw I felt great about sending my kids there. However, knowing what I know now, I would NOT FEEL SAFE sending my sons there. In fact, I decided to withdraw them immediately after the 2nd scissors incident. This was also an inconvenient decision financially since Primrose made us pay for 2 weeks worth of care we weren't using plus paying a new center's fees (and their registration fees) at the same time. Nonetheless, my children are irreplaceable and far too important to me for me to take any chances when their safety is at stake.
