Cranberry Christian Child Care Reviews
After the closure of my previous daycare that we absolutely loved, I enrolled my two boys into Cranberry Christian Child Care in Jan 13. I can’t say it would’ve been my #1 choice but was given my options in the area due to pricing. Since then I have had several concerns with the care of my now 9 mo old. On numerous occasions his shirt would be drenched from drooling all day and inadequate bib changes. I stopped sending him in nice clothes because he’d come home filthy from food and stained clothes. He often would build up a diaper rash throughout the week and I'd battle it on the weekends and see it improve only to come back again on Monday. (Even the doctor wanted to write them a note at his last checkup because it was so bad.) I was told sometime in February that my baby had been crying nonstop all day. I went to get him, took him to the doctor to find nothing wrong and he was fine at home. The next day I called to check on him and he was fussing for them. We thought maybe it was teething. In March I was told he turned a corner and was much better. While we never had a great feeling of the place, we weren’t sure moving the boys was the best thing since our 3 yr old was adjusting well despite the education program they have was far inferior to the old daycare. My 3 yr old would often say how he missed his last daycare and that we should get a new daycare, but I couldn’t get any concrete reason from him. The owner recently received a visit from the state and called me and other parents to ask if I called the state and said she was calling all parents to "get to the bottom of it." The call was borderline harassment. On a Tuesday the owner called me at work and said she wanted to talk to me when I got there. I was informed that my 9 mo old screams all day long for hours. (First I heard of this since the incident a couple months prior.) She said they're not doing him any good and I should find a new daycare and make Friday our last day. She also informed me that they moved the one regular infant teacher to another room to “get away from the screaming.” Had I known this at the time, I wouldn’t have hesitated leaving. The next day around 9 am I got a call from her saying that she gave me until Friday as a courtesy but they're done with us and want me to come get them now. I asked if the baby was crying and she said "No, we're just done." I asked her to gather their things and she said she already did. When I arrived the boys' belongings were in bags (not everything, just what they cared to gather). I knew my friend had given her notice that morning to pull her son out so I said to her that I don't know what them pulling their son out has to do with me. She told me I needed to leave and that WE cause too much drama. I've complained to her about issues I had with the care of my son and feel that is my job as a parent. This is supposed to be a Christian center, and none of her actions reflect that let alone a proper business owner. To top off, the paper for him that they are to fill out for the day was blank. It had been 4 hours at that point since I fed and changed him at home. This leaves me to wonder if they just fill in diaper changes and feedings throughout the day instead of when it actually happened. I wish I had listened to my instinct and 3yr old and gotten a new daycare long ago.
