Received Monday, February 11, 2008-DAYCARE Warnings
I would like to alert people using or thinking of using the LA Fitness Kids Club in downtown Evanston, IL. I called their corporate headquarters first, since their local management is a joke, and got nowhere. I had read unfavorable things about the Kids Club online, but I went in there one day to scope it out,thinking about it as an occasional option for my 7-month old. It was worse than anything I'd read. The snippy woman running the place was breastfeeding her child with NO backup. Children, including infants,were all around the room with zero supervision. I stood there, waiting for some explanation, a welcome--anything. She stared at me in silence, didn't say a word. A man walked in to drop off his child and she greeted him by saying, "This is my baby, by the way." (Well I would hope a baby on the breast IS your baby.) She went on to say to the man, about his young child, "He can crawl around, I am tied up at the moment." I stood there for another minute or so, was horrified and left. I would like to be anonymous but people may email me -through Jane- with any questions. Thank you for getting this out!
