No notice no nothing when I picked up my child today I was then told to collect his/her items today they were closing due to lack of $$$$ They could have prepared us parents a bit better than NO NOTICE!!!

It was pretty obvious 3 years ago when they started selling the buildings off...throwing all the kids together, the supervisor and most the staff leaving.... But yeah that does suck.

Now you might want to focus on finding child-care.. No child-care bad, child-care good... If you, family, or friends cannot find time to care for the child.

Yes I am a very upset parent to , makes me wonder if it has anything to do with money or if there was other circumstances . I knew it had really went downhill but didn't realize it was that bad. Who does that not giving any kind of notice?

I hate the fact that they are closing. I have used them for a very long time. I also hate that the workers are not getting paid. That is a shame. Good luck to all of you.

Do you really think it was all about the new people running it? think again. It has just been a few months. I think they attempted to take on the monumental debt of the previous management and just couldn't pull it out. As a parent, I'm sad, but I do understand, and appreciate what they've done for my children.

It is a shame about their financial situation but they should have said something so we can make arrangements for our children...that was wrong! I am not going to rush to find another daycare just for an empty spot...I want to make sure it is a good fit for my child. Good luck to the former staff.

I don't see on this thread at all where anyone said it was the new people. Hmmm....where did that come from? Did I miss an opinion somewhere?

Bad business to just close without a single word to any of the parents, no word of warning or any indication that anything was wrong.
My child loves going there and had friends, felt secure, and I liked having him there. I felt that he was receiving excellent care, good food, and wonderful supervision.
I am looking for another daycare for my child, BUT I want another good day care. I agree, some of those have mean people and are not there but to just get a paycheck and it shows. Unsupervised kids, poor food choices, a dirty facility, and untrained and uneducated care givers/workers. I see no point in naming names, if you have done your homework you know the ones, I am talking about.
That many kids needing daycare all at once, it is going to be rough. My sympathies to all of us!

Since the majority of the kids that went there received state funds why don't the state just take it over and keep it open

Any parents looking for a new daycare I use southern charm and they are great! My child always goes in with a smile and comes out with a smile from the first day. They are not a huge daycare but are very friendly and take care if the children. My child is 3 and complains about anything she doesn't like (as most 3 year olds do lol) but as said she is always happy to go there :)

It was not foreclosure . The new owners tried to pick up the garbage heap the previous owner left. As for notice, the parents found when the owners did. No one was given notice. As for the parent complaining about there being 8 kids in the class, that's not a violation. The state cannot take over because the state doesn't own it. It's a privately owned facility. It's the parents who get state funding not the daycare. The day care only gets paid if parents pay their bill.
