have great experience
by worker mom 1 , 04/29/2011
Both of my children have been enrolled in S.Ceclia and in Pierce st location and they have wonderful staff that love the kids. All staff are required to have 30 extra hours of classes every year and are all current in safety training which they will show you if you ask. I have been in Storytime since 1999 and there have never been lawn chairs for the staff outside and they are required by law to have a staff with children at all times. I feel the above people are those who like at every job may have been weeded out due to poor attitude (we all have those at our jobs don't we ). I would never pull my kids from this center and My kids talk about their great teachers daily. So I would recomend Storytime to anyone who askes me.

Professional Review Poor
by Director of Early Childhood , 07/03/2009
The advertisement for this preschool is falsified. Many parents have left this program due to their children being left unsupervised and individual needs not being met. Staff sit and talk to each other rather than keeping the children actively engaged. Instead they are sat in front of a t.v. for long periods of time. Children are not encouraged to problem solve and staff yell and humiliate the children. Staff have been observed sitting in lawn chairs outside instead of actively supervising the children. The cleanliness of the center is below standards and the director admits that she feeds donuts to John, Licensing Consultant when he comes through for a licensing check. Please do pop in visits for your child's safety.
Totally agree with previous review( have worked for this day care.)

I have worked for this daycare and was one of the most qualified staff there... but I have been let go because others who work there need their hours. They are single moms who have never had any childcare experience at all. Just because you have kids does not mean you know how to work in a daycare. Small kids are left in time out for long periods of time and their is alot of favortism among kids. Also there is alot of yelling and humiliating kids and name calling. I would not send my child to this center. I know another person who also worked here and got treated very badly by the owner. Experience in childcare should be more important than the $$$$ you make.
childcare center a joke
by Kira , 08/06/2010
All of the storytime preschools and childcare centers are a joke. The only storytime that I would ever put my children in is the North Sioux location. I use to have my children at the S Cecilia location. I was shocked to walk in one day and see my child getting screamed at and another day heard one of the staff calling another child stupid and talking to other staff about how stupid this child was. The owner only cares about money. She even tried to add more days on and charge me more money. The staff is very unqualified. I walked in early more than once just see see one of the staff kicked back with no shoes on. I pulled my children out of there and moved them to north sioux. Please do not trust this daycare with your children.
