The Early Enrichment Center Reviews
We were so unhappy with their care and administration that we had to remove our infant. They moved my 8.5 months old to an toddler room WITHOUT PARENTAL CONSENT, because they had enrolled younger infants in the infant room and needed mine to move on. They insisted that they had "left a note" in our box but the note we received after the fact had a date that was much later. The room they had moved her to were full of running toddlers while my daughter was barely crawling, and had a strict group routine schedule including a set meal time (in a group, at a table), set activities (Circle Time for a 8 month old? Really?), set nap time (one two-hour nap), and very few occasions for bottles.
To add to the insult, they continued to charge us for the infant room tuition, which was higher than this toddler room tuition (because teacher ratio was lower) and was not going to let us know the change. Finally, when we said that we would like to remove her once we find another daycare, they told us to get out at the end of the week but then charged us for whole additional week saying that they needed a "week advance notice." We would have stayed if they let us - Their tuition is not at all cheap so we are talking hundreds of dollars that I feel was overcharged.
In the end, the lack of transparency and a complete disregard to individual child's developmental progress made us remove our child. I have a terminal degree in Clinical Psychology and have observed many, many small children. The care and stimulation my baby was getting was not worth the fee, especially when we found out that they do not communicate what they do at the daycare accurately to us. I would recommend against this daycare for anyone that I care about.
