Circus Circus is a nice daycare. The women are very trustworthy and loving. My daughter has been there since she was 6 months old (shes 3 now) and her Ms.Opal became a second grandma to her! Nice & clean facility, reasonable rates, and a great staff. The owner of the daycare is the directors daughter. So 'mom' makes sure everything is legal and up to snuf. Give them a hollar.

I do work with parents that have differing work schedules (such as earlier or later). I am licensed for all hours of care not just the typical 6:30-5:30. However I will not have any openings for the earlier hours (before 6am) until school lets out in May. You are more than welcome to give me a call and come out to visit anytime.

all this licensing talk, a daycare cannot just open when they want to they have to be licensed through the state to open before six. so if they are opening prior to six i would say they are not obeying the laws. Doesnt matter if its summer or winter.

I'm sure that is true....some have hours that are early but they don't open that early if they don't have children that come that early. Also, it depends on how they are licensed. There are several good quality daycares in WP.

This is true!! When you apply for your daycare license in Missouri you have to request to be licensed for specific hours(shifts)...and if you choose to be licensed for 24 hour care/7 days a week then you can indeed care for children when you want and basically make your own hours...you can also pick and choose what children you keep at those differing hours...and make it seasonal if you want. However if you only apply to be licensed for a 6am-5pm hours shift then you cannot keep children outside of those hours without fear of being caught and potentially losing your license. You can check with the Dept of Health and Senior Services to find out what daycares in a particular area are licensed and for what hours they are licensed for. So as for the previous comment about not being able to more or less make your own hours that was posted by someone, I suggest you speak to the inspector at DHSS to find out the correct info before you spout off on a forum when you obviously do not know what is correct or not.

You responded to the wrong person. I wasn't talking about that. Read what I wrote. Watch what you say and to whom you say it to. Because you hit "reply" to the wrong poster. That's not polite.

Social working mom I have seen your agency in action and you guys are far from spectacular so before you come on here and pipe off at the mouth know that you do not waiver me with your job title. A professional, as you, should also know about the on goings in your community. I shouldn't have to contact anyone you should know which ones are or are not. So in closing instead of wasting tax payers money and name calling why dont you be informantive?

Well I do believe the proper term would be informative. Just in case you are unaware there are many types of social workers. I am not employed by DCFS nor DHSS nor am I paid with taxpayer's money. As for my knowing which ones are good or not, I do know; however it is not my priority to get on a forum and bash one caregiver or another. Every one establishes an opinion based on their own personal experiences therefore if I back one over another then all that will succeed in doing is ticking off the one person whom has had a negative experience with that particular facility. The most important thing for any parent is to communicate well with the caregiver, be observant of other children present at the facility, and talk to your children about what takes place on a daily basis.

I figured that's what happened, since it didn't make any sense as to what I had been saying. Thanks for clarifying! Have a great day!!

My only issue with Little Red Firehouse is that during the summer they do absolutely NOTHING but play outside. I understand they want all the kids to have the summer off but if thats the case then charge a little less during the summer months or something. One other issue is that my son was FILTHY when I picked him up. If he had an accident he would come home in girls clothes or whatever was available. So you cant expect to go anywhere with your kids when you pick them up. With that, most of the staff was great! Ms Pam was strict and runs a tight ship but this reflects in the kids behaviors and manners. You got to take the good with the bad I guess. Id be interested in finding out who you chose.
