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!
