Pam has more money than she knows what to do with. In my two years there, I couldn't stand her and she was the director in my building. She was never there hardly and before the top of the line Lexus, it was a brand new off the showroom floor pearl white Maxima. Gorgeous car. After I quit, I came to get my last check and saw her new fancy car ( 2nd one this year ) and I couldn't believe it. Put some of that money towards cleaning supplies, snacks and GOOD food for the kids, art supplies, SOMETHING!! I helped with so many fundraisers while there and it seemed none of the money went where it should. I wouldn't go back and would not send my child there for anything.

As far as I know she is. She came back after I left and I believe she has the youngest kids in building 1. 18 months. She was across the hall with the toddlers before she left to have baby number 2.

If y'all are that worried find someone who watches kids at home several people in town will take 3 or 4 in their home for less than daycare prices. I have witches infants for 15 a day or 20 a day if I supply the food if you didn't come a day you didn't pay unlike the weekly fee wether your child came 5 days or 3

I have a home daycare and just by reading all this; I am so happy I do. My kids have two healthy meals and an afternoon snack. We have activities and music and lots of other things. I couldn't imagine having my parents pay that much either. Mine only pay 80.00 a week and that is for all their food and crafts and whatever else we do. No parent should have to pay 120.00 especially since discovery island is so large. Ridiculous!!!

Sadly, they know and we all know that unless you are a stay at home parent their little place is the best place in town.
Unless you want to throw your kid in with a bunch of kids from crappy homes who aren't clean and aren't cared for.
The good thing about Discovery Island is they are one of few if not the only that doesn't accept daycare vouchers.
and almost all of the parents are decent normal people who raise decent normal children...not every daycare can claim that.
So if I end up with a few snobby bitches who talk shit about my kids...I'm ok with that so long as they aren't catching lice and all kinds of nasty crap from the ghetto daycares
Obviously you don't know that vouchers are only eligible for those who hold a full time job and/or are enrolled in college. These are parents who are actually trying to get themselves somewhere and care for their families. These aren't the ones "living" on the goverment and sitting at home drawing checks. Receiving vouchers doesn't mean these parents are any less of great parents than you and your friends are or that they are incompetant at caring for their own children. It is sad that you feel you are superior because you are paying for the most expensive child care in town. Obviously, a higher pay rate doesn't mean better care. That is why there are pages and pages of bad comments on Discovery Island. There are plenty of really good smaller daycares in town that take excellent care of children whether they accept vouchers or not. It is sad that you hold yourself on such a high mountain but you accept less than great care for your own children becuase you think money means more. And before you go judging..I am a parent with a college degree that makes over $70,000 a year and holds a full-time job. I worked all the way through college and if it wasn't for the voucher program I would not have been able to accomplish my goals for myself and my family.

My daughter has been there since June 2010. She loves it, and I've never had any issues with them. Every teacher that she's had was great with her, and she's learning so much. The tuition is higher than other daycares in town, but I think it's worth it.

Havent seen a child yet that didnt need a nap. Maybe thats why they are having behavior problems?????
Not all children need 2 hour naps. Some places make them nap even longer.Some only cat nap and are fine.
The care giver could have sat with that child and kept him/her quiet.Unless of course she wasn't in the room....

Our child just came home with a bruise made by a "Miss Kelly" whoever the hell she is. I want answers and names. Kelly who? Or is Kelly the last name? I don't expect a 3 year old to know, but I expect one of you fuckers who work there to know.
