I love KID ZOO! I have been going here since I was in diapers and still go here for afterschool. Anthony, Ms.Kathy, and all of the teachers are so nice and great to us. I am best friends with all of the people that i went here with when i was a baby. We have a lot of fun. Now one of the teachers are teaching us how to do really cool cheers that are fun to learn. The school kids all get to go on field trips to the park, movie theaters, and all sorts of other cool places. Me and my sister go here and it so much fun. But we do have to do some schoolwork and read but that can be fun. Then we also help some of the kids that aren't in school do crafts and other cool and creative things. But the afterschool kids they can play on computers, the playstation, and gameboys and the toys. Outside you can play on the equipment, or just run around and do flips, play tag and more stuff. They provide us with breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack and on sweaty days we get water breaks. It is a lot of fun to come here and just hang out. That is why everyone that has been to KID ZOO loves it so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We love Kid Zoo! Both my son and daughter have been well cared for and loved by the staff here. Miss Cathy is blessed as a teacher and has instilled a love for learning in my children. Mr. Anthony keeps them laughing. I never worried about my children when they were at Kid Zoo. I knew that they were happy and that Kid Zoo was the next best thing to being at home with me.
Wonderful daycare, have sent two of my older childern and my younger child still attends. Had many dealings with other daycares before I located Kidzoo............ It is a wonderful, safe, trustworthy, and most of all the staff is caring and love each and every one of the children as their own.
This daycare is the best kept secret in Charlotte! My children are teens now, but I still remember dropping them off and wanting to stay for the day, not only to play with my kids, but because of how KidZoo made me feel when I walked in the door. It is a bright, cheerful, loving environment and you feel welcome and happy when you enter. I also would love to smell what was already cooking. All the fresh homemade vegetables and a pot roast in the oven - WHAT? All of the KidZoo kids are family too. There is plenty of love from Miss Kathy and all the staff and they truly care about each child and their family. If you are lucky enough to become a part of the KidZoo family you will never forget how they took care of your child, challenged their minds, allowed them to develop and grow, and how they assured you it was OK to be a working parent. BTW - it took 1 hour from my house to KidZoo and then to get to my office each day - WELL WORTH IT!
It was 2000 and my 18 month old had been attending her first daycare for 9 weeks...9 weeks of my dropping her off hysterical and picking her up hysterical. She was inconsolable going in and coming out and it was torture for us both. I’d heard about Kidzoo from a coworker who happened to live in the neighborhood. Anything would be better than where we were, right?
Day four at Kidzoo, Darbi, walked in alone and turned around to wave at me, “Bye, Mommy.” It broke my heart and gave me such relief all at the same time…she’s 10 now and I drive from Fort Mill, SC every day to take my 20 month old to the one and only place that I trust (I don’t even work close to Kidzoo either). There’s no commute that exceeds the love and true dedication to the development of these little minds by the folks at Kidzoo.
The “other” daycare had a potty training policy that my 18 month old was required to be fully potty trained before moving to the next room but, they didn’t potty train. I had approximately 2 hours a day with my child and they spent 8 – 9 hours with her…there was something not quite right about that policy but, what did I know, this was my first daycare experience. Ms. Kathy had Darbi fully (and I mean FULLY) potty trained in 2 weeks flat. I was amazed. The first of numerous occasions to come…
I remember Darbi reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, her prayers, grace, Twinkle Twinkle…it goes on but, when she started school and was reading on a 2nd grade level in kindergarten, I knew that I owed it all to Kidzoo. When Darbi’s 1st grade teacher told me that she was recommending her moved to the next grade during the middle of the school year, again…Kidzoo. They take the time and have the patience to teach every attending child to exceed their potential…and in a caring and unbelievably uplifting way.
Darbi & I both have grown up at Kidzoo. We've been together through tragedies and joys and not only do Darbi & I both love them like our family; my new husband and baby Blakely have fallen in line too…their infectious…
Anthony, the Brotherly Jester
Tessa (Teresa), the Caring Overly Protective Mother (& advice giving sister)
Ms. Kathy, the kind Grandmother and true inspiration for the lot of the Kidzoo clan
(& Ms. Debbie…Jenn…Ashley…Amanda…everyone who’s every cared for or been cared for by the Kidzoo philosophy)
I can’t imagine what life would be like without having been a part of this family…their care surpasses that of any daycare that you would find anywhere…
