No longer a threat to the children of the Fort Mill area
It is such a shame to see "The Best" become "A Mess", but that is exactly what happened when Miss Pat retired as director of Appleseed.

The facility was left to be run by people who had no place running the facility or managing the staff because they had no management or people skills. The director was never there and when she was, she was unavailable. The "Stupervisors" were like watching Larry, Moe and Curley run the joint with their special "spies" planted among the hard working staff members so they could "get something" on them and threaten their jobs. Getting a straight answer from the management was like asking Lou "Who's on first?". Then they hire a financial guy with a questionable background and suddenly they're having money troubles.

The sad part is that several wonderful staff members are out of a job taking care of children that they truly loved and enjoyed taking care of. Hopefully these folks will find openings at other daycares in the area and be able to carry on their dedicated service to children in our community.

We never questioned the safety or care that our infant received at Appleseed, but once out of the infant room, it became clear that we needed to find another childcare solution.

Areva derchi Appleseed!

This is a former employee: DO NOT SEND YOUR KID HERE!
Listen, I would NOT waste my time to slander this compnay if I didnt feel it were a threat to children. First of all, there are THREE supervisors there. You'll know them when you see them:
1. The supervisor that staff only meets when they are hired. Once you are a part of the crew, NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. She, like the rest of the supers like playing hide n seek with the staff (probably parents too)
2. The neck-rolling, lip-smaking ghettofied DIVA that doesn't give a CRAP about employees. As much as they stress a non tolerance for gossip, she sure should practice what she preaches.
3. The ditzy hoarse supervisor who doesn't know up form down. Don't DARE ask for help; I think she gives you the wrong info for the hell of it.

It's no secret that this place has serious financal issues. If you go there now, I bet my life that they would have an opening for your child. I've been in childcare for 4 years, believe that if there if no waiting list, there MUST be a reason why. When I left, staff and children were dropping out like flies. The staff isnt dumb; management know appleseed is on its way out, but they don't have the decency to tell anyone for fear of losing money now. Its so bad that they hired me without taking a TB test (wtf who does this?), and without researching to see if I even had a HS diploma. Turns out, I was replacing a girl who was leaving in a couple days, so i had to learn how to run everything in the class by myself. When I would do something wrong, I would get yelled at, and talked about. The management is THAT unprofessional. The turnover rate for childcare is usually high, but at Appleseed is it so high that it makes you wonder. The hell with the free-childcare employee benefits, I would bring my son there if I had to. The place is filthy. The mamnagement is unprofessional; I've known times where I have called to the front desk because of an emergency, and no one was there to pick up the phone. In short- they suck. They deserve the foreclosure. Go to Kids r Kids, they'll show you how its done!

Great Summer Camp Program
We had our daughter at Appleseed from age 2-4. She is now 6 and back for their summer camp program. I did a lot of research at other day cares on their summer camp program and by far this one is the best. Very affordable and my daughter says she's having so much fun. Appleseed is a christian based facility which was a very important to us.

Good People
I have had a few experiences with Appleseed from 2004-2007 my son went there from the age of 8 weeks until 3. I NEVER experienced any problems whatsoever as a matter of fact his infant room teachers were outstanding and it gave me peace of mind everyday when I went to work and left him in their care. 2008-2009 I have had another child and looked to Appleseed for care things have changed tuition is higher but I have found it is higher everywhere it is several years later besides I never understood how Appleseed could be so much more affordable than the other centers and be profitable the rates are still reasonable in comparison to the other centers. The directors and staff are very caring and I remember Pat but there are still others there that have been a very long time and it is the same core values and care that they give. When I read all of the reviews and comments about how they don't care I just have a very hard time believing that I think that if you are considering Appleseed you should make your own assessment of the staff. Also in reference to the rates that are charged I suggest doing a check across the market they are at the low range especially for what you get. I have worked in daycare many years ago after I got out of the military and it is not easy work it is very demanding and takes a lot of love to be successful at it how can you put a value on someone substituting in a parents absence that is one of the most important jobs one can have and it can make a very significant impact on your child?s life. My husband and I both think they have done a great job.
