This facility has really gone in a downward spiral the past few months. Staff look unhappy and are dropping like flies. I dont know who does the hiring but WOW the new people are horrible and last maybe a week or two and then they quit. My kid will only be here for a few more weeks and then he will be going somewhere else. The director lies, the "sassy" front desk guy (who no longer works the front) is vulger, and lazy. He is never up and playing with the kids, he is always sitting down. I also agree with the TV thing. I do not pay for my kid to watch movies/TV, I pay for him to learn and play. The kids could be coloring, building something, playing simon says, playing outside, anything BUT watching TV. The two young teachers are gone, which is sad because they did play with the kids....and my son loved them! The new lady they have at the front is just rude. She is overly professional I guess I should say and doesnt give that warm, loving feeling. Atleast the director acts like she cares and says Hi and Bye, but the new front desk person says NOTHING. There are a few good teachers at the school or atleast from what I have encountered with my son being there for some time, but its sad to see so many quitting and Im sure the ones we love will leave soon too. Its been a hard decision but its come to the point where we have to find a new school and hope its better, but at this point anything is.
I genuinely love this daycare. I recently moved out of state and the hardest part was saying goodbye to them. My ex husband and I have a different custody agreement and the school was very accommodating and very welcoming to both my son and I. He used to be a hard to handle little boy, mostly because he's a toddler and a boy. He has a lot of energy and I've had other sitters and daycares quickly dismiss him. This daycare was the first one I've seen that was able to find his talents and positives and use them to help him become a better behaved toddler. He loved his teachers and friends and oddly, the day he acted out was his last day. Thank you so much Watch Me Grow!!! I am so thankful for you guys!
I was very surprised to see the reviews that are polar opposites. I think this probably reflects the person writing the review and not the facility. If you are interested... check out the facility, talk to the director, meet the teachers, and do some classroom visits.
I have been sending my children to Watch Me Grow for 3 years and have sent 7 different children (I do foster care.) As you can imagine, foster kids can have multiple behavior and academic challenges. In all my experiences, the children have improved while attending Watch Me Grow.
I have experiences with two other day care facilities because I have been involved with foster care for 6 years. I can say that for me and my family, Watch Me Grow has been a great place for us!
The classroom teachers work with my children as individuals to meet my childrens' needs. My kids have gone to kindergarten better prepared after attending Watch Me Grow.
The after hours care is done by younger employees who are there to supervise the children while parents are picking them up. My two boys love them and think it is "cool" that "guys" work at the daycare. Both smile at me and greet me frequently.
The "sassy" front office employee has gone to great lengths to call when my kids are sick to make sure he gets a hold of me. He has even called my boss to make sure I recieved a message that the daycare was trying to get a hold of me. He has a unique sense of humor that he displays with those he has developed a working relationship with. I love being able to joke around with him and know that he will make sure he communicates with me.
Even the cook, smiles and says hello to me when greeted.
Everyone has different experiences - If 10 people see the same movie they might not all agree - some may like it, others may not. So - check out Watch Me Grow to see if it works for you and your family. I won't go anywere else.
Great Places Love it!!!.
Watch Me Grow has been the best place I have enrolled my children in. They have helped both my family and my children in many ways. I don't understand why people have to say that the male office manager is sassy and rude. He is very nice to every parent that comes to Watch Me Grow, helpful and very loving to all the children, even making sure to greet them by name. If you don't have anything good to say about anyone at Watch Me Grow then move on with your own life. Every teacher there is making a change in your children and providing a safe learning experience. This is the best place to bring your children to. A big thanks to all the Staff at Watch Me Grow and keep up the great job.

TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE!
I wonder who wrote the previous two positive reviews. The wording is similar and perhaps sounds like it came from an EMPLOYEE. What a shame if they have to write their own reviews.
I completely agree with the below person. The male office manager is completely SASSY and rude! I can not believe they keep him employed! The facility does occasionally SMELL like diapers, but lets face it people it is a CHILD CARE facility. It will sometimes smell like diapers, especially in potty training rooms. I think the facility does a good job in limiting the smell as much as possible by taking out the trash often!
Some of the teachers here look very unhappy, however some of them don't. The teachers in my childs room seem very happy and loving, however the things I do NOT like, besides the male manager are:
1. The amount of TV time my child watches. Every night the classes get together in the big room and watch TV. I think my child can do something else at night when the rooms combine like PLAY and SOCIALIZE rather than watch TV.
2. The two male teachers. They're kids for god sakes. They have no idea what they're doing and DO NOT know how to properly talk to children.
3. The cook. Every time I see her she ALWAYS looks angry!
My children have been going to Watch Me Grow for years. My Daughter will be going to Kindergarten this year and with the help of her teacher she is already reading. Both of my chidren's Teachers are awesome. We have parent meetings every month, and the Teachers are always willing to talk to me about thier day.
I would recomend the center to anyone.
Dirty and full of un-educated, foul mouthed "teachers". We recently switched to Watch Me Grow, and I must say, the staff is nasty and has no business "teaching" our children. The guy that works the front is sassy and disrespectful. The "teachers" look fresh out of high school and look miserable being there. It smells like dirty diapers all the time. Never going back
I had a good experience!. The managers and caregivers are really friendly and helpful. They always seem genuinely happy to see my son and have been very understanding with my weird work schedule.
