My children went to the location in Dania, I relocated them to Hollywood blvd location on account of it was closer to home. They lasted maybe a week in second location. One of the teachers forced my then 4 year olds head down for nap time and during so he banged his head on floor. I called the director immediately when I discovered the incident from my son giving her the benefit of doubt because he was 4. I requested she immediately discover specific details to this matter with a date of notice or my children would not return. Well I cancelled the last check since they did not return for the service to be rendered. I am currently in collections for this and this being the ONLY derogatory claim on my credit report I am beyond upset with this establishment whom seem to care more about following up with a collections agency than a concerned parent! I will be reporting them the The better Business Bureau.
This place is a dump DO PUT YOUR CHILD THERE. The place smells as you walking cockroaches are running the school if you love your kids please do not send your child to this school.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Young Kidz Academy. We had our son here for almost a year as an Toddler and he received the best care I could have imagined for him. The facility is secure, clean and beautifully maintained, but it is really the teachers that make this daycare the very special place that it is. Each teacher is so kind and loving to all the children. They don’t just care for them in terms of the essentials (feeding, changing, napping), but also introduce the babies to music, arts & crafts, and story time. I had peace of mind every day that I dropped him off here and never worried once during the day. He was so happy every morning when we arrived, and lit up when he saw all his teachers. I would recommend this center to anyone seeking the best possible care for his or her child!
My Daughter was a shy one at times and he is very sweet, and I can't even start to express how much he has blossomed since starting at YKA. His teachers are fun, loving, and very caring, as well as the administrators. They are so nurturing with him which makes it easier for me to leave him in their care. We are there mostly because of the spanish immersion which is wonderful. My son is speaking, counting and singing in spanish more often now. The food is delicious and healthful. I don't have to prepare lunches everyday. We are so lucky to have found YKA preschool and couldn't be happier!
The teachers at Young Kidz Academy take the time to understand my son, his strengths and his needs, and created a caring plan that changes as he grows. It is a warm and loving environment. We love YKA!
Excellent learning curriculum to help prepare your child for kindergarten. Engage your child in different activities that helps with social development. Opportunity for your child to learn more than one language. The teachers and staff are amazing and supportive. Parents have the opportunity to participate and be engaged in his/her child school aspects. The environment is friendly, safe, and welcoming.
When we started at YKA with our first child he was only 20 months old, and I had no idea of how wonderful and caring a school could be. YKA has exceeded all of my expectations and in talking to other friends, I realize how lucky we were to have found YKA. My son is now in his fourth year, and our daughter has just started in the toddler room. Every year, it keeps getting better and better. The success is due in great part to the great attention that is placed to all aspects of the curriculum and the love and nurture the teachers give to the students and the parents. However, another really important part is the parents and the community.
My family, and most importantly our child, loves this preschool. The teachers are amazing & have early childhood education degrees, and the other parents are welcoming and wonderful. Kids play outside organized teachers games. They learn to "make the right choice" and be kind to their friends. Parents will begin to see photos of their children learning and discovering, as the school just installed a state of the art computer system this way everyone feels engaged. YKA for me is the best part about living in Broward. I wholeheartedly recommend this school.
Young Kidz Academy is amazing place. Our son has just started . We love the family who runs the school, as well as, all the teachers. If you want your child to spend the day in a caring environment and to build a great attitude towards school, go and visit YKA. We highly recommend it
This is a wonderful family owned and operated preschool and staffed by fun and caring teachers. They provide a safe yet interactive environment. There is a strong emphasis on fun with learning and is reflected through our child's behavior. I can go to work in peace knowing our daughter is in a great place.
