For the last 7 years I have taken my 2 kids to this daycare, and I wouldn't change it for anything. I highly recommend this daycare to everyone. The teacher who was in my 1st child's class was the same teacher for my 2nd child's class 5 years later! My 3 year old loves it so much that she tells me she doesn't want to leave, when I go pick her up, which is bittersweet,ha, but it's a good feeling to know my child loves being there! They have video cameras, which I like because I can log in from my phone and see my child. They offer summer daycare for my first kid's age group, who is 9 years old, and it is convenient that I only have to pick up at one location for both kids in the summer and Christmas break. I the summer my older kid loves it, because they go on field trips every other day!!! I love this place and you will too, but not only that your child will!!!!
If I could give zero stars I would. Thank goodness for the cameras because that is how we saw my 12 month grandson be strapped into a little wooden chair so he would not bother the caregiver. She did not like him crawling after her all the time. We saw other children come pull him over and only by the grace of God did he not get hurt. They put him in a highchair and leave him there sometimes for more than 1/2 an hour. He cried all day and never played with toys. We took him to another daycare and on his very first day they sent pictures of him smiling and playing. Mountain Valley kept saying we were the problem as to why my grandson was not adapting. I say it was from a cold, uncaring staff that was purely there as a means to a paycheck. I emailed the director with my concerns and other concerns I had from what I saw on camera of the treatment other children received. She never responded. These people have no business being in the business of children.
Love Cara and Denise. They have been there the whole time my daughter has been there and I can honestly say they are hard workers and enjoy the kids.
I find it hard to believe that this place has been given any good ratings. We took our daughter here for a little over a month and unfortunately realized that this is not a caring, nurturing or educational environment. I watched the cameras as often as I was able to and saw several things that were distributing. The children are ignored, the staff does the bare minimum and there is considerable favoritism towards the employee’s children/relatives. When we approached the director about our concerns, she acknowledged them but basically told us that she has tried to work with her staff. She did nothing to correct the issue and just made excuses for it. She seems nice but in reality she just tells you what you want to hear and speaks out of both sides of her mouth. After finding a great daycare/school and seeing the differences, it compelled me to write about our experience to warn other parents. This place will merely just watch your children at best. I find it disgusting that they charge what they do and not provide an educational and nurturing environment. They only care about the money and the uneducated staff is very obvious in the quality of service and overall attitude.
I would tell family and friends that it was the toughest decision ever to find someone to care for my children while I was away from them but I am confident after researching my options that this is the right place for us, my children are happy to come in everyday and they are happy when I walk in the door to get them they always look like they have had a great time and that makes me feel good. I don't ever want to leave them but it makes me feel better about it that they are happy and comfortable with where they are. Thank you Kids Kampus for making this as easy for our family as you have, I am so appreciative for that.
