Does anyone know of any good childcare in Desoto County, preferably Olive Branch and Southaven areas. I have been looking and for the most part they are either booked, too expensive, or out of the area. I have done research with the Department of Health to get inspection reports from the childcare and they charge $30 for each request. I think this is crazy. Why should parents have to pay to get information on childcare research? Not to mention, everything has to be in writing, so the reqest has to be submitted in writing, you wait on their reply in writing, then wait on the results(if you pay the administrative fees-$30 per childcare). This is about a month's timeframe to get results. We don't have the time or patience to wait this long especially when we want to research multiple childcares at $30 each. So we have to rely on referrals or take a chance. We're new to the area so we didn't just want to just pick someone-not to mention the 3 childcare inspection reports we did get all have bad reports. Please help. My son is 4 and I have a baby due in August. HELP!!!!

I forgot, Church of God on Church road is very dirty and crowded, don't be fooled by the Church name.

Southaven Community Church on Airways is clean, but a lot of redneck teachers.

Colonial Hill Church on 51 is the best of the best, however, they have mother day out only. Good luck and keep me posted.

Wildwood Christian School & Daycare on Swinnea in Southaven has opening for all ages. I have heard it said that they are the best kept secret in Desoto County.

My daughter goes to Southaven Community Church on Airways. I do agree with a previous poster about the teachers. For the most part, they are good to her, but they have said a few things that have rubbed me the wrong way. I am paying them to keep my daughter, they shouldn't be saying anything to me about what time I drop off. As long as I pay on time, and pick up on time, is the only concern they need to have. I will say this though, if my daughter was younger, I would not take her here. She is 5 and will be starting kindergarten soon, so this place is fine, but if she were younger, no..I would find somewhere much better, with more of an educational type curriculum.

The director is very nice, but those minimum wage ladies who work there, offer little in the way of nurturing, caring people. They are there to watch your kids, and that is about it.
