Our son has been at KKC since he was 4 months old. The first, more convenient daycare we chose, lasted for less than a month. A co-worker suggested KKC because it was near our office and conveniently located right off of the freeway. My son is now 19+ months old and we are having to take him out of KKC due to him having a severe peanut allergy. It has been one of the hardest decisions my husband and I have had to make. KKC has been part of our son's extended family and they have cared for him as such. He has always been eager to join his teachers and friends, and there are days that he isn't ready to leave. We tried desperately to find a daycare option that lived up to KKC and that could accommodate our needs. To no avail, as I am now leaving my position to stay home with him. KKS's facility appeared much cleaner and more equipped than other daycare settings we visited. They appear to have a close knit group of employees and director(s) who are easy to work with and professional. They did everything they could do accommodate our son's eating restrictions while he was was there, but unfortunately for us, they are not a nut-free facility. Our son is bright, happy, inquisitive and social, and we credit KKC for helping him grow. Overall we have been very pleased with our experience and the care of our little boy and would like to see more daycares adhere to this standard.
I toured several daycare facilities...I stopped looking once I found Kid Care Co. I've had my oldest son enrolled in Kid Care since he was 9 months old, he's now 4. He's enjoyed his teachers, the lessons and activities this entire time..and my youngest son is following right behind him; enjoying the same quality of care! Kid Care is above the rest for a few reasons.Specifically I love the CLEAN, bright and upbeat atmosphere. I can't keep my household of only two kids nearly as clean as they keep their facility that's filled with kids! I also like the fact that the classrooms all have windows or half-doors...they're not hiding anything here! I've dropped by unannounced several times at random times during the week to check-up on my kids and their activities and I've never been disappointed. The teachers are great... didn't even flinch when I told them my son had special dietary needs. The teachers are attentive and quick to point out inconsistencies or unusual behavior ("he's not been going down for nap as early/easy as he has been"), which leads me to believe they know my kids well and are concerned for their well-being. I am grateful to the staff, including the Owner for providing such a great place for my children to spend their days!
Every parent who reads the reviews has to be really skeptical. I was thrilled to put my baby in that facility. Specially from all the positive reviews, but, after a while I started seeing things I didn't like. When I went to the director she would say, "it is normal"? that's all she had to say. Some of the teachers look like they don't want to be there. I feel sometimes as if they are herding sheep. If they are there, they are supposed to be active with them all of the time, playing, teaching, etc.. Not just sitting, which I found they were doing most of the time. There is also a big gap in communication that needs to be fixed. At first I thought the post on "conscious mom" was exaggerating but I may now think she's right. The right thing to do of kidcare co would have been to offer her an apology and REALLY mean it and try not to let it happen again. Because, that obviously was lack of communication on their part. Instead of trying to defend itself because one post tainted their 5 star rating. It maybe that the bad teachers need to be removed or their needs to be better communication because all else is good. It is a clean place, which you rarely find. To sum it all up, My baby isn't there anymore but remember their teachers can make or break you.
