Worst daycare center around. They are understaffed. They do not pay attention to the children. My son has come home with bite marks on his body or scratches to his face and nobody can explain what happened. There are workers that steal diapers from the kids as well as money that has come up missing when the people from cheer zone come to the facility. Linda Ortega is the most unprofessional director. She is never there in the daycare. She is either at the owners house watching her children or in the price contracting office running her mouth. She leaves the daycare unsupervised all times through the day. Ms. Sherrie is know for snatching kids up by their clothing rather then finding another way to reprimand them. Deidra Berthold steals from the daycare. Do not take your children there unless you want to get ripped off. Debbie who is in the infant room has been overheard saying that she had a hangover more than once and had to go home. She could not handle the 3-4 year olds so she was moved to the infant one. I picked my son up once when Debbie was supposed to be his teacher and he was very nasty to say the least. I had to clean him up and change his clothes before being able to leave the daycare. She does not pay attention to the children and cannot be trusted. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN THERE.
I have never encountered such a wonderful place for children. The staff is always so welcoming and accommodating. My daughter has been going there for a year now & she loves it. I am always telling people how much I love Kid Academy and recommend anyone with small children to go there.Sincerely,Amber Adams

Thank Yall for all yalls hard work! If your looking for a awesome God based school for your child this is it!
AMAZING! If i could give a million stars i would! My child has learned so much being at Kid Academy. Everyone at Kid Academy is sweet and welcoming. They love my child as if he was their own. He is only 3 and can count and identify all numbers. He knows his letters, and can identify them as well. He is also writing his numbers 1-5. I swear this school is the best on the coast. I really am thankful for this school and their staff. Im just so pleased that my child is so welcomed and gets to do all he does. They have field trips all the time, and the children get to experience so much. Im excited for our Christmas play and spring play of Aladdin. Y'all rock! Thank you for all you do for my family!
My oldest daughter graduated from Kid Academy 6 years ago and my youngest will graduate next May. Both have received lots of love and attention from teachers and staff of Kid Academy. I feel very safe with my girls there. There is always something exciting going on with either a Holiday party, field trip or play for the kids. Definitely the best Pre-School/Day Care around. The kids learn so much!
I have nothing but awesome things to say about Three Rivers academy .. My child was always happy . The facility is very clean and the children are well taken care of .I would recommend it to anyone ..
The school is very clean the teachers are welcoming and embrace the students from day 1. I reseached all the schools before choosing Kid Academy, and I have found that they are the best in Gulfport. My daughter as grown while attending, and I have been very pleased with her care. I would refer this school to anyone that asks.
My daughter goes to Kid Academy and she absolutely LOVES it! She learns something new every week. I have watched her personality and her vocabulary develop week by week. She loves going to "school" every day, even though she is only 21 months old. She claps every morning when we pull into the parking lot! She gets to interact with children her age and she is forming friendships everyday! Her father and I could not be happier with Kid Academy!!!
I absolutely love Kid Academy, I feel 100% safe with my children in their care. I have two boys currently enrolled there, the Kid Academy staff is fantastic and everyone there goes above and beyond to make sure they enjoy the time spent there while also providing them with an outstanding curriculum which gives them a sense of accomplishment and confidence entering into kindergarten. I could not even begin to give enough glowing accolades to Matt Dickens (owner) and Holly Ford (director) for everything they do, they are truly a gift and are so deeply appreciated. Ms. Kiwana, the teacher for the 4-year-old class, has always been outstanding with my little guys even on the mornings they were grumpy and wanted nothing more than to spend the day with mommy, she's simply wonderful and her patience amazes me. As a divorced, working mother of three boys it is an immeasurable comfort knowing that, while I am unable to be with my little guys, they are in the best care possible.
Kid Academy is the BEST Preschool on the MS Gulf Coast! The owner Matt Dickens is hands on in everything they do. He and Holly (director) are ready and willing daily to meet the needs of the children there. The curriculum in each classroom will give your children the skills needed to start kindergarten ahead of the game. The teachers are AMAZING!!!! (MS. Gale you ROCK!!!! :) Our daughter loves her teacher and can't wait to go each day to play and learn with her friends. During the summer they go out of the way to make your child have a great time with field trips weekly, themes, and adventures the children can't wait to learn about. When we moved to the MS Gulf Coast we didn't know anyone. I was afraid that we would not find a preschool that would meet our expectations. Kid Academy is CLEAN, FRIENDLY, SAFE, EDUCATIONAL, and FUN!!!! There is no other place I would send any one of my children than here!
