Our youngest son, age 3, has been attending for a month. He has made noticeable improvements in his fine motor skills such as tracing lines (letters, shapes, numbers), using spoon and fork, and putting on/taking off his shoes. Everything is high quality: staff, environment, curriculum, communication. Moving him from his previous day care to Gardner School has been the best decision we had made for him.
We enrolled our son as soon as the West Loop school opened and will always cherish our experience there. The director and especially his teacher, Miss. Jessica, created an environment of love and respect among the children. His development both emotionally and intellectually has set him far ahead of his peers now that we have relocated. Thank You TGS!
I give this school an overall F due to the lack of professionalism and fraudulent activities that the owner and her clients are engaged in. Mrs/MS McKinney claimed children that was no longer in her care, she was not providing services for them at the time she got paid for the 4 children on my rooster. I asked her to give me my money back. The lady ignorant and is a low down dirty thief with no remorse to her actions. I would be aware of her any provider that takes on any children coming from her establishment needs to make sure there potential prospect close out there children. Even if there with a new provider McKinney will take claim on your money. Your a re a disgrace to others child care provider and to be so old and ignorant knowingly that you did wrong and sit back and refuse to give me my money back I no you and Jackie McDonald were both i on the scam. You all need to be in jail for that its called theft. you no there's consequences and reprecussions to everything we do in life, I'm waiting for you to suffer financially just like I am god gone punish you damn devils.
this school is the best so far i have came encountered wth. they have great staff there and is very patient with the kids. they take time to understand each child. Because of this school, my son can pronounce his name properly. he can also count to 20. if there is a problem, they would inform and handle the situtation in a professional manner. i love everything about this scchool. yes i recommend them to any one looking for a daycare
I would like to say that our experience with Ms.McKinny's Early Learning Academy has been great! Our daughter has been since she 6 or 7 months and she is now going on 4. She learned the alphabet, her numbers, social skills, hygiene, reading, and bunch more more. She had been on field trips and have outdoor recess as well. I highly recommend this school especially if you live in or around the Austin neighborhood!
