Would you recommend Kid Connection in Princeton? I have a almost 4 month old I am looking to put into daycare. I called for rates today and she said it was only $19, whereas most places were around $25. This of course has me excited and worried at the same time. lol. How do they deal with babies? Are they good with them?

No do not send ur kids there!! There r workers there that think they are playboy bunnies and are on their phone and taking pictures more than they watch ur kids!!!! I had to take mine out because they had dirty diapers all the time diaper rash and one person showed me a picture one worker posted on a public site that showed kids in the back and was not given consent! Plus they talk about the kids awful telling other people they are brats, that's just not right. Some people like it and thats fine but if u are over protective like me and want only the best for ur little baby don't send them there

Ummm this is just my view of Kidd Connection. This is your choice though.
My daughter has been going there since she was 4 mths. She is 21 months now. She is always taken care of very well..loves her teachers (they rotate the teachers). She is kept clean (diapers and clothes). Though they do play outside during warm weather and of course get dirty. But I don't want my kid to be afraid of getting dirty by playing. I encourage it! If I'm going somewhere after daycare I always supply change of clothes for her..anyway...I work very very close by and have dropped in from time to time to check on her. Hubby has too...and one of the children in the pics that the other person posted about was mine. Did I get upset? No because all these teachers have become friends of mine. I have researched this daycare before I got her in along with others. Do your research like the good mother you sound to be and go with your first instinct. As I said this is just from my personal experience with everyone there. They are friendly and caring to the entire family. This is your baby and your choice. Good luck with your search!

I have worked there. I quit because I no longer could be quiet about the things going on. The kids are screamed at ALL the time. The teachers have their pouch of the kids they like and treat the others as if they don't matter. On one occasion a teacher grabbed a two year old up by one arm and broke her colour bone. Told the mother she was falling and reacted by grabbing her, which was total bs. the children are teased, and smarted off. The after school group was treated the worst. Go in unexpected right before nap time and you see. go in right after the after school kids come in and you will hear then screaming at them. That place needs sit down

seems to me if you thought your child was abused you would have shown up for court, I mean you had 2 years to show up and never did. therefore the accused was innocent because for one she didnt do anything and you called the cops 4 hours after you picked the child up, who the hell knows you could have done it and pointed the blame on someone else, after all you never showed up for court so there had to be a reason you didnt
whatever

there is a girl who is very jealous of a worker there so she always starts things on topix about the daycare. best advice to you is if you wanna go check it out then do it, if not dont...Im sure the daycare will survive without your child, they dont want topix parents to deal with anyway....And never come to topix for advice bc the only people who post are people who wanna start trouble.

I worked for a day care before and u would be surprised at the behavior of the adults that work there...it made me sick the way they picked which kids they liked and if they didn't like the parent or was jealous of the parent then your child was not liked...I love all children no matter how the parents life styles are...matter of fact I seemed to be drawn to the ones whose parents didn't seem to be as in tune with their child as you wld think a parent should be...I really miss the kids from the daycare but not the co workers at all..although there were a couple that loved the kids no matter the circumstance...one in particular has her own in home day care and I know those kids are lucky to have her and not have had to go to another day care

No, I was saying I have worked at a daycare and I am wondering if they aren't all alike?? Also out of all the co workers I had, there were only a select few that I would have trusted with my child..I was very fortunate that I never had to get a daycare to watch my child. The daycare I worked for closed.
yeah its me
