Unstructured, underequipped, uneducated staff, the owner is crass and unaccommodating, the food is garbage, and it is extremely expensive. Teachers let the children run amuck. My kid has come home many times with bruises and stories of getting pushed off the play equipment, etc. Teachers always deny seeing anything. Don't send your kids here.

We had an excellent experience with Kreative Mind! There was great communication and fantastic follow-through on all the ideas discussed. The day of the party Bethanee arrived early and set-up a beautiful table for the party. The treats were delicious and we got so many compliments. I would absolutely work with Kreative Minds again. It was a fantastic way to have a party with no stress.” Kristan-
Bethanee was awesome! She responded right away to my request, delivered what she promised, was very friendly, and easy to work with throughout the entire process. I can't say enough good things about her professionalism and willingness to help me pull off a wonderful event! I highly recommend her & already have. -T.Harris
Horrible service, very unsafe. Serious lack of consistency. I took my daughter last year, she was not tall enough to ride the go karts according to the sign. An employee placed cushions in her kart to make her tall enough and allowed her to drive alone. I took both my kids just on Saturday, 5/16/15. I purchased 2 rounds of go karts for each of them. They stood in line for about 40 minutes to get on. They were both allowed in their own kart no problem. When they finished, they exited and got back in line for round 2. After waiting in line for approximately 30 minutes they were told they were too short to drive their own kart. I told the employee they had just ridden and drove alone. He told me whoever let them on shouldn't have. He was short and very snappy with me. I then approached the cashier for a refund. I also told her they had just ridden alone no problem but now were being told they couldn't. She stated that when they are busy it's a liability. I pointed out that it was busier at the park when they where allowed on and drove their own kart an hour earlier. This seriously makes me question the safety of the kids as well as the employees being qualified. How is it only sometimes a liability? Either it's safe or it's not. Not only were my kids extremely disappointed, the park's employees were rather rude to them and myself about it. I will not go back ever again, nor would I recommend it to anyone. They are a serious liability to themselves.
My son has attended this daycare since he was a year old. He still goes after school. He does not have to go after school and or when days schools are closed, but he asks to go so he can play with his friends and see the teachers. He enjoys going and doing all the fun things they do. Definitely recommend sending your child here.
Never let this woman watch your kids. She left two kids in the car on a hot sunny day. She was going into the bank. An employee had to tell her that it was too hot and the kids where crying and she need to go get them. She then said "I won't be long" and "it's their bed time". The employee insisted she go get them "it's so hot" "your cars not running and unattended with all the windows up" so she did. She brought in an infant and a toddler. She then was in the bank for about another 20 mins. Everyone knows you don't leave kids unattended in a car. I was sickened. DO NOT EVER LET THIS WOMAN WATCH YOUR CHILDREN!! So many kids die a year from being left in hot cars. She could be the one that kills yours. This forced me to rate her. I would have given her no stars.
Took my 7 year old son there in June 2013. There were several children and adults purposely ramming each other. Now I am in no means a whiner. But what drew the line for me was this. My son and I were spun into the wall and and got stuck since the car doesn't have reverse. No big deal. However, while sitting and waiting for an attendant to come give us a hand. An adult, not a child, rimmed our car on the side and full speed. Hurt my boy's head and my arm. The manager/owner, Chris I believe was his name, stood on the track while all of this happened. When I said something to him, he said well a we can't really enforce anything. When I asked for a refund on my remaining tickets, he rudely told me no. The adult in the car that hit us, disappeared otherwise I would have given him a piece of my mind. I understand go karts can rub and bump. But when it becomes a crashem derby, i will have to draw the line. Had Mr. Chris kicked the guy that hit us off the track or yelled at him or even apologized, I would not be too upset. But the guy wouldn't even apologize. I will never spend another dime at this place.
We came to the Straker daycare after a few unpleasant experiences with daycare in town. And immediately we fell in love in Marvelle's daycare. Marvelle, the owner, is the best care giver you can wish for. The daycare has a very warm and loving athmosphere. You will find a very organized, kind and fun person. Kids love her and she loves them. My daughter enjoyed this daycare for 3 years from 12 months to 4 years old. All kids including my daughter call her grandma Marvelle. Unfortunately, we had to leave the state, but we miss Marvelle's daycare and are still in contact with her and the kids almost every week. Marvelle has been certified as a child caregiver and she has a Biennial License - meaning she consistently showed excellent performance and compliance during the state audits. I will and have been recommending Straker care to everyone.Natasha.
Creative and upscale with a great atmosphere. I work here! And I am very proud to say so!
