Security is good at this daycare, but the teachers were not as impressive. It took me 3 days before I finally met my child's teacher. And when I did, she didn't even get out of her chair and introduce herself or help unwrap my clinging child from my legs. I was there nearly 5 minutes before she acknowledged I was even in the room. Teachers should stop their conversations with other teachers and speak to children and parents when they come in. When I picked my child up, the young girl watching kids in the afternoon said that my daughter stood in the corner and cried for nearly 30 minutes. Finally, the teacher had to pull her into the group and try to get her to stop crying, That's an awfully long time to wait to do something about an upset child.
KingerNoggin is a wonderful place for childhood development and grade school preparation. Our daughter spent a year at this home-style preschool and developed relationships and memories she still treasures today. The atmosphere was always pleasant and engaging. Ms. Gabriel made us feel like our daughter had her highest of priority. The directors, Stacy and Wanda, were always attentive to our needs and requests. Their curriculum standards are far more than other childcare centers. We had scheduled parent/teacher conferences and were able to follow our daughter's progress through the latest in technology. Their standard of excellence gave us the confidence to entrust them with our child's early education.
The owners are committed to a quality, educational, day care setting. They take the hiring of their employees seriously--only hiring people with college degrees (or in the process of receiving their degree). They have a strict standard for interacting with the children--patient, non-sarcastic, respectful. Lesson plans are adhered to and they don't waiver from the strict laws set up by the state. They are a five start facility (a state grade).
Cooperative and Friendly Staff. Excellent location from work and shopping areas. Weekly rates are very reasonable for this start-up center. Transportation to and from school is a major "win" for me and my work schedule.
The lady ms. Davis is great with the kids, positive environment, she is just an overall nice lady... I take my 7 month old daughter there and I would recommend this daycare to anyone... She is awesome
