Not recommended for your child. Children are always getting yelled at & they are forced to just sit there all day long watching television instead of playing and learning. Director has no respect at all for parents, staff getting yelled at in front of children and parents. Take your children out now before it's too late and your child is humiliated and down graded.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED – This is a great daycare my kids having been attending for over a year and ive had no problems. My kids are well taking care of and feed well too. Thats really sad that some one would say such negative things about this center, the teachers and the owner. My kids love being there so much that even on my days off they'd rather be there then home with me. The teachers are great when my kids get home they tell me about all the new songs they've learned and they show me all the crafts they made, I really love that they get picked up and dropped off so that i am able to make it to work on time. Overall theres alot of good things that I can say about this place so if u need a GREAT center to bring your kids to I would say run dont walk to Andi Pandas Daycare Center.
Highly recommened it2 – Its really sad to see that someone is so negative that they have to lie about some crazy things. I've worked for andi panda for a long time and had my own 2 kids going to her day care. The day care is great, the teachers are great. I was never aware of any diseases any price changes, any cloasings and openings time changes. It is a licensed facility and it is checked and approved by state. So its always clean, the food is healty the staff are trained kids are happy. I haven't beeen there for a long time and my daughter beggs me to go visit over there, she loved that place and i loved being there also.
Highly recommended!! – I am so sorry to read the negative comments titled Cigarette break anyone?
I have 2 children at Andi Panda and have never experienced the things mentions in the parent's comments.
The staff is clean and professional. They alert me when there are concerns are issues involving my children.
There has never been any outbreaks of any diseases.
The staff has a heart felt concern and love for the children.
I will continue to recommend Andi Panda to my friends and family.
Much Love to Andi Panda and Staff
Very Good Child Care – My children have been going to the center scince they were new born I have always seen nothing but the best from teachers meeting my childs need. The director is allways friendly and knows about your child . The owner is great always availible by phone. The staff really prepared my children for kindergarten they were ready for first grade . I started having finacial problems and the owner worked out a payment plan for me that I could afford not to many people would do that .THANK YOU FOR CARRING SO MUCH FOR MY CHILDREN AND ME If you have concerns contact the state of oregon to get the real history. If interested
Cigarette Break Anyone? – Andi Panda is like an old ladies living room... A whole lot of gossip and cigarette breaks but absolutely no learning. Don't be swayed by what seems like reasonable prices you will get scammed one way or the other. Prices change according to owners mood and not what is in the contract you sign. They are currently under investigation by DHS's daycare assistance program. Center is dirty and has recieved several code violations from the fire marshall. Constant outbreaks of disease such as ringworm which you are only notified of by a color code that hangs on the door, sort of like homeland security's red and orange. However this won't be explained until your child actually catches this stuff. Lazy teachers that discourage homework and change the opening and closing times of the center to avoid as much work as possible. Also you will never see the owner of this daycare unless you hunt her down. Especially if you don't owe her any money. HANG ON TO ALL YOUR RECIEPTS!!!! They hire people who would otherwise never find employment anywhere esle, and addionally I happen to know the employee that was fired and the sad thing is she really did deserve it but how about this. They hired her back after letting her go and had to fire her twice! Also kids pick up lude behaviore at this school as supervision is minimal, it is not out of the ordinary to walk into a room full of kids and not see a teacher. They are usually smoking outside when this happens. Also your child may come home attacked and bloodied, or without all of their belongings and the teacher may or may not know what happened to your child, hopefully they can talk.
Fantastic working environment – I have worked for andi panda for a year now. When i first started working here you were my director and it was the worst working experience ever. i dont know why your sittin up here tryin to bash andi panda when all they did was make there business better by getting rid of an employee like yourself. You were the one who treated kids with no respect You treated employees like we were your personal slaves. You talked to the employees with no respect. so why your sittin here tryin to post things that are false maybe you should take some responsibility. If you took a second to look back at your expierence here and actually be honest with yourself you will understand that andi panda made the best choice by replacing you. Since you left this has been the BEST place i have worked. The children are treated with respect and dignity. They are guided instead of disciplined. When they make a bad choice they are spoken to with kindness, they are not yelled at. It is my personal opinion that this center is an excellent place to have your children attend.
A great place to work and bring your kids – I work for andi panda for the last eight years all of my colleges have work for over two years .The owner hires people who haves experience and past the back ground check and people who love kids.And she has a very diverse group of employees .Please call the centers talked to the employees and visit the sites we have letters from parents recommending these sites.Please do not listen to an employee who was discharge for bad behavior. She treats every one good.
Not a good place for anyone! – Whatever you do, DO NOT take your children there or don't even apply there. They are very discriminate you. I have worked there for 2 years. And those are the two years I can not get back. They will call you racial names to your face and some pretty foul names. So don't apply or take your kids there. They even treat the kids like garbage as well as the staff.
Not Good Enough for My Kid - or Yours – This place is down right scary. I have seen children yelled at, threatened, forced into time out for unreasonable periods of time and been told by the staff that the poor babies earned it. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Do not leave your children here. Ever.
