We have been at the same center since the start so 3yrs now. Lately I am not in love with it. Their numbers are down so they have staff leave earlier and after school kids (6-7 y/os) are spending 3.5hrs with my 3 yr old. I told them that I find this less then ideal and their solution is to put her and 1 friend in with the toddlers. This isn't great to me either, it's not age appropriate play and yes it's free time but..I also feel a bit of disconnect from the staff. I have an 18mos old there as well and I feel like his teacher, who is SUPER sweet is not physically able to chase after them.
So I visited another center and fell in love with it. It has all the things that I've found my center to be lacking and the staff seem great. I look them up on the Department of Health and they have many violations for things like cleaning products in unlocked cabinets, mold found on fridge, fridge not at correct temp, clogged toilet. For a week now I've been going back and forth in my mind and then the visit last night had sealed the deal. I really inspected the place it seemed clean and then I come home to read this and I'm at a loss. Would you let this change your mind? I have put a call in to the director in hopes of some explanation.
