Ilene has MULTIPLE violations and illegal daycares

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
The caregivers at the Greenwood location are consistently heard yelling at children outside of the front door. There are holes in the backyard floor, mice in corners scurring away and half the services we paid for are secretly canceled (some caregivers are wonderful and once you build a relationship they will tell you much about the goings on here) Not only have we STILL NOT RECEIVED OUR DEPOSIT AFTER THREE MONTHS but ilene REFUSES TO ANSWER PHONE CALLS OR EMAILS. Wasnt very hard to get in contact with her when she wanted the bill 2 months in advance. Also heard she does not pay workers on time. Where is all this money going?

We had a similar issue with Ilene. We have 3 months notice and she still cashed our checks.

After battling to get her to respond to our calls and emails she only issued us $400 of the $3,000 she stole from us. She is a horrible person but most of the caregivers are lovely.

Will not return calls or our money, beware

The owner is greedy and fired many of the beloved caregivers who have worked for her for years and hired employees with less experience for little salary. We made a choice at that point to remove our child due to a lifestyle change/job change. Ilene requires you always pay a month ahead so we gave 2 months notice that we would not be returning and would like our september payment back. She now refuses to answer our calls or emails and thinks we are going to just let it go. We overlooked quite a bit because we loved his caregivers but basically all you pay for is 4 hours of naps Ilene provides nothing and canceled the only music class because she is greedy. Daycare is expensive and we really need our money, she didn't care about our kid then and she doesn't care now. We will not give up. Her policy states she has 2 months to return our money I guess just not our phone calls. I suppose a lawyer and court will be next or maybe a call to 311 and a message on every local parent group in the neighborhood.

my children have been at Ilene's day cares for years there is no more loving caring day care in city I know the disgruntled employee, as do 50 parents , who have had their child with Ilene , these comments come from an angry vengeful women who should be ashamed of herself..it was this type of attitude that cost her her job.. there is often people who have become very misguided and have not learned to see themselves that creates this poison God save us all l.karl Brooklyn ny

My children and their friends have been going to Ilene's day care for years.. This review is utter nonsense .

Ilene and staff are loving responsible individuals.

Many of the providers hold college degrees or are pursuing them, they all speak English quite well. One disgruntled and very vicious ex employee has made it her life's work , because she was let go to malign one of the most daring and conscious daycare business' in the area

This daycare which my child attended has been wonderful. All caregivers speak English and the daycare is licensed .

There is music and iota and art .

My child gets breakfast and lunch and a snack .

If I pay 2 months in advance there is a discount offered.

I have been very happy with the care @ sunflower .

Sounds like disgruntled ex employees to me making negative remarks .

These caregivers work very hard.
