HATS OFF TO A TERRIFIC STAFF!!! – My children are learning so much I almost can't keep up with them. They want to cook when they come home, they sing a new song most every day, they are into recycling and showing curiosity about everything. I have one that fusses every morning at drop off time but he never wants to go at the end of the day. There are so many activities that are provided that unless parents asks alot of questions they would never know their child does. Class rooms are Large in that eachroom is built to accomodate between two and four Classes of a particulate age. Staff are so patient in working with children of different abilities and backgrounds. There are four Languages spoken by children in my sons class room area, two children with disabilities and three with ADD or ADHD. I know this because I volunteer 10 hours a week in the class area between the three groups or classes. There are eight Languages spoken between staff members. Children who speak a Language other than English are put together with other children who can traslate or Staff who can translate. I have seen pictures where Staff are invited to the homes of, weddings and Specil Events of the children and their families. How cool is this.
We are very Thankful we found them. – We were new to the State a few years ago. We were immediately made to feel welcome. The Center helped us with Community Resources, Gave us information on who was hiring in the area, even gave us the scoop on places to live and the best schools for our children. I normally would not know about a site such as this but in recent Parent Teacher Conferences Clients were asked how they had originally found the Center. The Internet came up as several Clients response and Negative Unfair Postings became the subject. We were shown several which I found to be deliberately misleading. For those who would Crawl about in the Murkiness of Anonymity and post such Untruths I feel sorry for. I feel even more sorry for the person who reads these untruths and decides not to investigate for themselves.You may have chosen a Provider who is not nearly as good as Tilley Time is because of a falseity. These sites do not care nor do they monitor or verify the postings. The site simply has set up a way to make money by how many people sign up as members. Of course everyone should find out as much as possible, that includes going in and seeing for your self. I have been extremley happy with the services I recieve. I love the Staff especially Samantha, Shagufta and Angelica.
You will be Astounded!!! – You are at ease the moment you enter the Center. Clean, bright, decorated Office Entry Area, Friendly, helpful Staff greeting Clients as they come and go (I found Samantha the Diretor to be extremely kind, caring and helpful, the Night Supervisor Elisa was also). A Security Door is the first stop to entering, then a Finger Print System is used to check children in and out. Immediately upon entering the Childrens Area there is a Large Beautiful Indoor Gym decorated in bright inviting colors, themed with built in playhouses from a Hospital to a Cabin with play equipment to match allowing children to explore and have many choices of activities. you'l l simply love this place!
Child care is great – In my hotel room my bed wasn't made like oh my gosh what is going on in this world. OmG this is the most awesomest place ever!!! Everyone inside customers and staff are so happy its got a great vibe you will be impressed and the sales going on every other month are one of a kind.... This is a must see get there oh and the hats are just gorgeous...
Not for kids with ADD or ADHD – No Structure was provided at this Day Care. Why do the job, when it's easier to just suspend! If you have kids with behavior problems no matter how minor, Putting them here will only result in You missing work. They Let Kids Fight just so they can kick them out and keep your money. this is FACT.
Neglectful Daycare!!! – I had my son in Tilley Time over a year and a half ago. He was only there for about 5 months. The first couple months I did not see any major problems. Until I switched my schedule to an early morning schedule. A couple things happened. First i started noticing how lazy the staff was. I would pickup my son who was only 1 1/2 years old and he would have snot glued to his face. Dried and you can tell his face had not been wiped in hours. They would lose his clothes, shoes, diapers, wipes. I would always bring extra diapers everyday. And if any parents were out of diapers i gave permission to allow them to use my diapers if needed. I got accused of not bringing diapers for my son and being charged $5.00 a diaper for the center using theres. when they were using mine. My son had multiple times that he had sunburns from being outside and I did put sunscreen on in the morning as they directed. But was not allowed to leave the teachers with sunscreen for throughout the day, which i thought was bullcrap because sunscreen does not last allday. So when my son went out later he had no sunscreen on, it had worn off. On top of it when I started bringing my son on saturdays and sundays. I noticed the daycare teacher was sleeping most the time when I dropped my son off at 5:30 in the morning. Now I understand that most kids would be sleeping at that time. But she was being paid to take care of our children,, not to sleep. She should have always been awake. It always made me nervous because they are right on that main street and a kid could just walk out the door without her noticing it because she certainly would not wake up when i dropped my kid off. It only took a few weeks of that before i got fed up. The final draw was when i picked up my son and was getting ready to walk out the building i noticed he had something in his mouth and i knew he was too young to have hard candy, so i put my finger in his mouth a pried out a rock the size of a quarter. The director was not there. So i talked to her about it the next day. She said that kids will be kids. That they dont have that much control over what they do when they are outside. That If i didnt notice it till i was getting ready to walk out that the teacher probably didnt notice it either. I could not believe it !!!! not even an apology, that it will never happen again!!!! That was it!!! I gave my 2 week notice and found a wonderful day care that my child has been at for a year and a half and is going to stay until he is in kindergarten called Puddle Jumpers. If you want your child to be happy and safe DO NOT put them in Tilley Time, take them to Puddle Jumpers. Tilley Time may be cheap but thats exactly what you get. Cheap daycare and low standards, neglectful teachers and uncaring staff.
overcrowded daycare at best – I sent my children to this "daycare/preschool because of all the rave reviews they gave themselfs. My children were enrolled there for two months. I appreciate that they have puppet shows and other activities for the children, however there was not any personal attention given to either one of my children. I would be surprised if they even knew their names. The class sizes were ridiculous. Around 30 children in each class. My son was not given proper education. His phonics cards were sent home with scribbles on them, as if they gave him crayolas and told him to do as he pleases. My five year old's projects and learning activities were the same my three year old was doing. Unacceptable. Not only was the education something I was furious about, my son's belongings were stolen constantly with the employees not seeming to care very much. Occasionally the other teacher in my sons classroom of thirty was a non english speaking lady. Another time I caught one of the teachers yelling out of control at another child. After the school aged children came to the center, my five year old was placed in a room with much older children, whom taught him vulgar jokes. The last straw was when the "teachers" accused him of stealing another childs money for snack time. My son would have money every week for friday snack. The last friday he was there another child accused him of stealing her money. Instead of calling the parents, they gave the little girl his money and had him up front reprimanding him for stealing. When i arrived at the center they were rude and expressed they "guess" they believed me and would give him a dollar. Not only did my child have money every week but occasionally would bring extra in case someone didnt have any, as there are also many misfortunate children. All together i find this center more focused on packing as many children as they can in there, rather then teaching them any educational skills. I hope centers like this will soon be a thing of the past.
08/12/2008 Posted by JWWJ – This center is the BEST in the state. State of the art security, cameras, and an excellent staff with more education and training than any other center we have ever been to, including multiple staff members with college degrees and 75% or more of the staff with 1600% higher training than the state of utah requires to work in childcare! Yes you read that correctly 1600% higher and the remaining staff are working towards that level! We never settle for licensings standards.. We go way beyond! simply because their rules are not good enough for us!
EVERY single teacher in the toddler room does 100% positively speak english. This client made it perfectly clear she had racial issues. We do not tolerate this!
NO ONE tried to guage you for extra tuition! We are cheaper than everyone else around and provide better care as well!
Feel free to volunteer.... work 1 week with NO complaints and we will pay you 3 times your weeks salary!
For the centers protection as well as the clients a written two week notice is required and there is a specific spot on the form to be filled in. This client simply tried to skip out on her two week notice and was told that the notice was required and that the form needed to be filled in!
Lame, Lame, Lame! – I used this daycare for a month, and in that month, my child only had one teacher who spoke english! (pretty important for a toddler who's learning to talk) The facility was nice, and had okay security, but the staff was rude and always seemed like there was something going on.
On the last day of my child's attendance, I asked one of the girls at the front desk what the procedure was, and she handed me a piece of paper and told me to write down my 2 weeks notice. I told her I'd already given my notice and that there's a note on my acct. She refused to look and insisted I write down my notice. Talk about trying to gauge me for extra tuition!
