wow, this is wat our society is coming to. You slam people's daycares. My opinion of all of you people on here who are just talking crap, is that yall need to go back to high school. You people are doing what teenagers do when they are bored with their own life's.You don't even know what goes into taking care of children. I know the director very well and she reguarly has the carpets shampooed so that babies aren't crawling on nasty floors like at other centers. She also follows all licensing rules. There are lots of children who are in schoolage now, that have been going to her center since 6weeks of age.
She only has them cleaned once a year. The workers "spot" clean when a baby spits up.

I agree. That sounds about right. How else would you explain the "black" socks everyday on the kids in the toddler building. Just filthy.

It seems to me that most of the stuff on Oasis has nothing to do with the care of the children. It seems more like personal issues you people have with some of the workers. I dont know what anyof you hope to achieve by the threats but it is VERY juvenile to say the least. You all need to grow up.

Mychildren went to Oasis for years there arerats roaches and ants all over the placeespecially theolder kids room. The carpet and floors are FILTHY...the socks my kidswore there were never restored and had to be thrwn away. There were a few workers there that really did care very well for my kids and we developed a good relationship. However the atmosphere there includes teachers talking on their phone instead of tending to the needs of the students as well as physical reprimand for the children. Now these are facts I know for certain, I have seen everything withmy own two eyes...now as for personal issues...yep i have a personal issue with the director /c when i informed her how I felt about some of the things mentioned instead of taking care of the problem or makin an effort to take care of the problem she chose to dismiss my kids...she just recently had to prosecute her assisant director for stealing money and she unfortunately was the best teacher she had lol...it's ironic isn't it? I don't dislike Oasis but that is not a place I would recommend my kids were there for years but they remained because of the relationship I had with a few members of the staff that kept a watchful eye so to speak over my children while in attendnce...If you are stilllooking for a daycare try Little Scholars Learning Academy or the ASU Development Center or Hilltop each aare clean with reputable teachers and a great curriculum and if you need an aftercare program try Adventure Club, First Baptist Church...each of these places are fantastic from my experience
wonderful

This is so sad that people dont anything else to do with their time but write and talk about people and oasis. How about you try being a real woman or man and let it be known to that person who you have the issue with instead of acting like a kid and talking about their place of employment. It cant be too bad of a place they are still open.It funny nobody have anything to say until after you have taken your child out or you no longer work there. As for everyone that has something negative to say I bet you are one of the ones that got behind on your bill and Ms.Sherry still allow your child to attend or you wrote several hot checks every week but still had your child there faithly from opening to close.If your child dont attend anymore you have no need to speak on the issue... for what they arent there it shouldnt matter. Because regardless of what you say or how bad you try to make it seem someone is still going to bring their child,they still going to be open so you have accomplish nothing. There are no perfect daycare you are going to have some problem no matter where your child attends.So my advice to you is to get a life and grown up.

Why would someone repeatedly, for weeks, months,or years, drop their children off at any facility where they have seen rats, roaches and ants? Its not that hard to find a new daycare, so I call bs on that one.

For one the rat, ants, and roaches were not all seen at once and the RATS were the last straw. A rat/mouse crawled over my own hand as I was sitting on the floor with my daughter in the school age building. And you are right they should have left years before based on the unsanitary conditions BUT I never said the childcare was faulty. No child care facility is perfect BUT there is a limit. The issues in the end were not as prevalent aas they were in the end. Also as I stated I had several close friends that worked there and told me inside things that other parents would not know about there rodent issues as well as these ppl took good care of MY children and my children were well taken care of. I do not like Oasis now that I know better and I do not like Ms. Sherry at all and I as a grown woman can say how I feel whenever I want to about anyone or anything. I have already told Ms. Sherry how I feel about her and her daycare a couple of years ago to her face. WE have moved on and found daycares in which not only are my children receiving good childcare but also in a sanitary environment. Since someone asked about Oasis and I had experience I provided an answer of MY experience and MY opinions...to each their own...

I worked for Sherry at Oasis for 4 years. The only reason I no longer work there is because I moved back to Michigan. Since I moved back i have searched to find a facility as nice as Oasis and with policies in place to protect the children. You could never find another center as good as Oasis. As for the comment about a parent having their child in the classroom, that is not allowed! I know from experience! If I ever moved back to Jonesboro my children would be there as well as I would work there. I am educated in early childhood and everything a parent should look for in a center Oasis has. By the way Sherry serves parents from all backgrounds, she had a family for years the mother was a child abuse investigator and the father was a state trooper. If that mom was comfortable there that should tell you something.

<quoted text> Just for the record I work at Oasis and work here for 8 years moved to memphis and came back and have been here almost a year again. This is the best daycare I have ever worked in and it is very clean and organized. We do not employee people without education or that are community service people. If you were educated to the state laws you would know that this is not allowed. I think the program that you are refering to is a Tea program that requires volunteer community hours Oasis has not had any of these volunteers in 2 years and to volunteer in the program you had to pass drug screen, criminal record check, fbi check and Child maltreatment check which are required by the state for all volunteers and employees. I personally have a CDA if you are not educated enough to know what this is it is a Child Development Assosiate which is accrediated through Washington DC. My fellow coworkers also have all these things and the state checks all daycares for these things. We are also required to have 15 continuing education hours a year, CPR and First Aid. And just so you know my personal child attends Oasis free and even if it were not free I would pay any amount to have her here. For the record your own child can not be in your classroom this is one of Ms. Sherrys policies.
Most people who are not happy did not get things there way. The state and daycare policies are very strict.
GO ANGELIA!! Sounds like some people have too much time on their hands to be running Sherry into the ground like this! Could it be some of the employees she let go for reaons that they didn't like? In the whole 4 years I was there the people who took their children out was usually for financial reasons. michelle

Ican't say anything about the pests as I never saw any. I pulled my son out of the daycare after he was repeatedly bitten, clothing items missing and a lack of any curriculum. The only new things that he was learning were the things we were teaching him from home. These issues were discussed with Ms. Sherry and I was informed by her that kids will be kids. My son loved his infant teachers, the problems began when he got moved into the separate toddler building when they were still on east nettleton.
