I cannot say enough wonderful things about the quality care that my children have experienced from Mini Texans Christian Learning Center. We have three children who attend Mini Texans – a four year old in Pre-K, a 2-year old in a toddler class, and a 3-month old in the infant room. I feel 100% certain that all three are given all of the caring and attention they need, as well as the resources to help them grow and learn. Mini Texans’ owners, Jonathan and Marcy Boynton, have created a wonderful environment where our kids LOVE to go each day. The teachers and staff are caring, attentive people and the environment is immaculately clean and filled with age-appropriate toys and learning tools. The staff know each of my children by name and also take the time to know their personalities and talk to my husband and I about them – often laughing with us about a funny moment they had or sharing something the children learned that day. They have always supported us in any efforts we are making at home – whether it be the schedule we are working on with our infant or potty-training our two-year old – they always keep in very close communication and work with us on the things that we want for our children. My oldest child is in the Mini Texans Pre-K class and I am so happy with the curriculum they are using and the learning going on in his room. I have spent the last decade working in the education industry so I used my resources and did my research when I learned about the curriculum they had selected for the Pre-K and everything they are using with my child is of the highest-quality and geared toward preparing him for the work he will do in Kindergarten. Additionally, beyond the curriculum, they have found an impressive balance between teaching the curriculum the children will need and providing them a nurturing environment to develop the life skills they are still learning (i.e. manners, etiquette, respect, etc.). In addition to the classroom opportunities, I have been awed by the number of enrichment activities available to our children on-site at Mini-Texans. My children have taken advantage of opportunities to learn basketball, soccer, dance, swimming, and even a class focused on computers and early technology skills. I have found that these “extras” are the things that many children in a typical daycare setting do not get to participate in because they are typically at a time when the parents’ schedules do not allow it. To have them available to our children within the day has been an incredible gift. We have been coming to Mini-Texans for over two years now and I have been blessed to meet many of the moms and dads whose children attend the school. In all honesty, I can say that I have never had anyone tell me that they weren’t completely happy with the decision that they made to send their children to MiniTexans. We believe that it takes a village to raise our children and we feel so incredibly blessed to have this school as a part of our village. Thank you MiniTexans!

I personally have had dealings with this vary daycare for over 3 years and couldn't disagree more with the review made by Kimberly A. Garza. Yes, the daycare is small which is the very reason I chose this daycare. I did not want my child lost in the mix of a larger daycare. I wanted her to receive a more personal one-on-one experience and that is exactly what she and I both got. The director is more than lenient with regards to accepting late payments but as with any other daycare policies, a weekly tuition is due no matter the number of days the child comes to the daycare. There is the option to do a drop-off option if in fact a parent does not bring the child every single day, it will however cost more to do that which is how ALL daycares operate. The director worked with me on several occasions when I needed additional time to pay my tuition fee and with no penalty to me, so yes... she is something else and it isn't money hungry. And yes she will advise on other daycares in the immediate vicinity to her location and she also encourages prospective parents to go see those daycares and determine for themselves, which is something I appreciated from her. As for one full-time lady responsible for 10-13 children ranging in age, she is within licensing guidelines and unless you personally went around asking for the age of each child, this comment is completely unfair and as the director advises, go observe other daycares and their teacher/child ratio is much worse, I've seen it for myself. It is blatantly apparent to me that Kimberly A. Garza had a personal issue with the director/staff/daycare because her review is a laundry list of issues but revolving around all personal opinions, nothing factual. My advice with any online review site, take it with a grain of salt because you never know who is acting out of vengeance which appears to be the case here. Finally, all daycare facilities are inspected on a routine basis and her record speaks for itself, they are factual, unbiased reports that are published after an inspector completes an inspection. Any responsible parent should look online for an inspection report before leaving their child at any daycare. I to this day recommend her daycare to anyone who is looking for quality daycare for their child, with a personal touch and I will continue to do so.
after visiting sweet repeats, kids junction, and once upon a child, i decided to head to a completely different part of town and try my luck there. the trip was definitely worth it!! i was immediately greeted at the door by a friendly smile and a warm "hello how are you today?". unfortunately one of the bad things about shopping in the west side is the rate of crime so the nice lady asked me if i would please check my purse in at the front counter. not that i didnt expect it as there is a sign at the door and one right as you walk into the store. i walked over to the counter and again was greeted by another warm friendly smile and sweet employee. she asked me to zip up my purse and gave me a pin that matched the one she had just put on my purse. she was extremely apologetic about having to take my bag, and already i could tell that my experience at this store was going to be a great one. this store unlike the others was extremely organized, smelled fresh, and looked very clean. prices at this store were extremely reasonable and the condition and style of clothing was great. they even have a play room in the back for kids! the shoe selection was the best i had seen at any of the other stores but i think that the customer service was what really made my experience such a great one. i found some great deals and even had a nice little chat with both ladies working there at the time. while i was checking out and talking to one of the employees, who i later found out is the manager, she noticed that i was buying size 7 clothes and mentioned that she liked the selections i had made today and said they are always looking for sizes 5 and up and asked if i thought i might have anything that i would like to try and sell. apparently she trusts my taste in clothes! that made me feel so awesome. i also found out they have 2 other locations in town, one in the area i had just left! all in all i'd say they were extremely personable and helpful. now these ladies know a thing or two about customer service! it was about a 10 minute drive for me once i got on 410 but its definitely worth the drive. i walked out of there a happy customer and promised them i would be coming back again and again. im glad i decided to take a chance!!!
