Overview: Certified childcare service ideal for part time or date night care. My almost 2 year old loves going 2-3 times a week during those occasions that mommy and daddy are both scheduled to work at the same time. This is ideal if your schedule varies from week to week or if you have the outside normal hours meetings to attend. The facility: Kidz in a minute is conveniently located in the Target shopping center near Once Upon a Child. They are open 8:30am-9pm Mon-Thu, until 10pm on Fri and Sat. and 1-5pm on Sun. As you enter the building you are in a reception area with a half window half wall separating the reception area from the play area so you can see your child is playing happily before you completely leave the facility. This greatly reduces anxiety for both child and parent. There is room for napping and,a small kitchen for heating and storing food. You can provide food or for additional $5 at pick up they will. No peanuts or peanut butter allowed (we sent a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich one time . In the play area itself there is an indoor pirate ship play house with slide (my son loves), climbing wall, play house, 2 computers with child friendly software, and tables crafts, coloring, and meals/snacks. Cost: Annual membership is only $20 and half of that was credited to the cost of our first visit. Standard rate is $10 per hour, but package plans are available and provide a substantial discount well worth investing in. There are also some simple loyalty programs (card punch and Facebook check-in) that you can participate in to accumulate free hours Staff: Staff are certified childcare providers competent and friendly. They keep a daily schedule posted online allowing for play, clean-up, snacks, and even potty reminders which has helped my own son become more excited about potty training. Before you go: There is an online registration form you can fill out or print off to fill out and have ready the first time you bring your child in so you can use your time to speak with the staff and introduce your child to the facility rather than standing around filling out paperwork Added bonus: Your Kidz in a Minute membership card is good for discounts at other businesses in the shopping center. A list of participating retailers is available online. Funny comment: The first day we took our son here he had so much fun that when daddy showed up to take him home he cried and ran back to the pirate ship saying 'No! Mine! Mine!' He has gotten better about leaving and anytime we go to the shopping center he gets excited and points out the brick building with Kidz in a Minute babbling happily.

CPDC has helped my family tremendously with our son. Our son has battled acid reflux since he was 2 months old and I had gone round and round with his pediatrcian on what to do. Finally, after being referred to a different therapist (whom I wasn't too impressed with), we were refered to Carolina Pediatric Dysphagia Clinic. Though I was aprehensive at first, afterall, no one knows my son better than me; we gave them a shot. I am so glad we did. Joan and her team have been so helpful with our Liam's progress. We had no idea why Liam wouldn't eat certain foods and why he screamed and cried during meals, but Joan saw within 5 min at his evaluation that he wasn't chewing properly. It has been 3.5 months now with Joan and her team and Liam has come so far. Though he's not eating proper foods for a 2 year old yet, he's made many strides and I feel as though he'll be where he needs to be soon. We also are doing speech therapy as Liam has had delays in both this and feeding. He's only been in speech for a few weeks and already he's signing and understanding more and more each day. As a parent, going into therapy services, you need to have an open mind. You need to understand these therapists are professionals and yes, only you know what's best for your child, but these therapists can at least guide you in the right direction. I have seen a few posts with negative experiences and all I can say to those who have had them..... communication is the key. You are the parent so you can always openly talk with your child's therapist and let them know your fears. But, understand they know what the final result should be for your child and they are here to help. Joan and Liam's other therapist, Morgan, have done just that for us. I take their advice to heart and tweek it or add to it to help Liam at home, but I always get the same result they are looking for. I will continue to thank them every session as I know we could not have gotten Liam this far without their help and support!
I cannot say enough about Dr. Patel. I have a 4 month old and nearly became anti-doctor after 3 visits to my last pediatrician. The front staff is great, the waiting room is spacious and you don't feel like you're sitting in an small, infested room with the sick patients. Dr. Patel spent 70 minutes with me on my first visit discussing everything I wanted to know. She is a traditional doctor but is also well-traveled (having lived in Asia, Africa, and the Americas) and her outlook on wellness is more worldly. After being told that my pediatrician would no longer see my son due to my putting off his vaccinations, I went here seeking a pediatrician who would be more open and understanding to my wants as a parent. She is just that and more. She believes in traditional medicine but is more than willing to accommodate parents with different beliefs. Not to mention my son adored her. She is very in tune with the babies and says that she will always listen to what they tell her first before listening to what the parents have decided is wrong. She had great energy and a great outlook. She talked a lot so make sure you want that and have the time for it but I loved that about her. This explains the longer wait times but to me, it is worth it for more quality time spent. She also explains what she is doing as she's doing it so you aren't left out in he dark. I could go on and on about her. But for mommies who may be leery of the strict CDC schedule or who want a more personal, customized experience, she is the woman for you. Let me end by saying just because she's more open, please don't think that she's some weird granola-crunching, patchouli smelling witch doctor either. She's just fabulous!!!! 10 stars
