When my daughter was 2 it was time to move from home care with her grandmother to a daycare for the experience to grow and learn and socialize with other kids. Like most mothers I do not make the decision of choosing child care easily, nothing but the best would do. I found Joy after doing a lot of research and visiting many centers in the area. I knew Joy was the best place by far after my very first visit and there was no other place I would ever consider again. My daughter has loved the center and everyone there since day one, even when it was hard for me to leave her that day, worried it would be difficult for her to adjust, she just waved and said "Bye Mom" then ran off to play. The teachers are all very loving, patient, attentive and absolutely great with the kids. It's very clean and safe and has a fantastic, structured curriculum that doesn't compare to any other daycare I have ever seen. It has been 3 1/2 years now and my daughter is finally starting kindergarten already knowing how to read and write on a first grade level! My husband and I feel very blessed to have found Joy, Ms. Cher and Mr. Mel and all the wonderful teachers who have helped shape my baby girl into such a smart, well mannered and genuinely happy child. Thankfully we live close by and she will attend the local elementary school so she will most likely be staying at Joy until she is too old to go anymore :-)

It's a great place to bring your kids. Limited front parking. warning - The Ghetto parents who get the state to pay for their daycare will hog the parking spots sometimes. They don't last long, so you only have to put up with them a little.
My (now 2 year old) son has been attending Toddler House for 6 months now and we just love it. We compared several full-time care facilities prior to selecting, and the difference with the Toddler House is the behavior of the children. When we visited other locations, the children were wild, everywhere, and terrible listeners. At the TH on 34th street, the children are well-behaved and sweet to one another. Often, my son wants to sing happy birthday to the other kids in his class at night because they are friends. The staff are caring and proactive with their communication, they have tried and true advice if an issue comes up (from diaper rash to temper tantrums), but honestly the best thing that happened to our son was his vocabulary. When we dropped him off he was almost 20 months and not talking, despite our nanny working tirelessly with him. After two months being surrounded with the other kiddos, he started speaking clearly. Now, he can easily count to ten, he sings most of his ABCs, and he loves animal noises. They really worked with him, and you can just tell the staff adore him. It's a wonderfully homey environment. If you are looking for the latest and greatest technology and equipment, this isn't the place for you. But if you want caring women to work with your child in small class sizes, this place is great.
I would simply like to respond to the last review where she called me a racist for your information my husband is African American and I'm Italian my kids are Hispanic my daughter in laws is African American and my grandchildren are all interracial.I am not a racist I simply did not like you. That's why I run my own business so I don't have to deal with people that I don't like. I am definitely not everybody's cup of tea but most of my business is word of mouth. I am tired of people trying to take advantage when they live in their big mansions and want to pay people $3 an hour to take care of their kids and make them work 14 and 16 hours a day that's slave labor and I'm not signing on for that anymore. Call me whatever you want. What I am it's an American. I believe in American values and fair wages. I'm far from perfect but I am definitely a woman of my word. I run this business by myself and yes over the years there have been times I have gone through things and haven't given the best service due to circumstances in my life but to those people I have given a full refund. As for me threatening somebody well that part just didn't even make sense!
After my initial good impression of this center, I am unhappy to report that I will no longer be using their services. My son is a Kindergartner and we live a few blocks away. We use Kidz Academy on a day by day basis when HISD is out for holidays. He has been there once, and I was very pleased with the kindness of the owner and her husband. However on 11/25/14 I called in to advise them my son would not be at the academy for 11/26 due to a change in plans. One of the staff members whom answered, only spoke Spanish. I kindly asked to speak to someone who spoke English. She sounded very annoyed that I did not speak Spanish. This was disrespectful and very unprofessional. That was strike one. She handed the phone over to an English speaking employee and as I began to introduce myself, she hung up on me. Strike two. I called back immediately from the same phone and they would not pick up. Striked three. I was forwarded to voicemail, left a voicemail, and it was not returned. My son will not be attending this establishment anymore.
I've tried a couple of daycare centers and interviewed about 9 or 10 so as you can see I am somewhat particular about choosing the people I have care for my babies. My children are now 5 and 3 and we have been with Rainbows and Stars for 2 years. I saw on the previous review that they say they are all about money. I can say from personal experience that this is absolutely not true. Mrs. Creeks has gone out of her way to help with our financial situation. My 5 year old is learning to read and doing very well with addition and subtraction. I judge a caregiver by what my children tell me. They are happy and confident to go to school. They love their teachers, Mrs. Wilma, Mr. and Mrs. Creeks. I cannot say enough about this place and the peace I have found in having to be a working mother and place my children in the care of someone else is priceless. They are very reasonably priced especially for the attentive care and education they give. So grateful I found them!
I was visiting family and my car just would not start for anything,i happen to break down on barker cypress by dannyscarcare, danny the owner walked out to see if i needed help and was ok, I told him about my car probkem and he, himself pushed my car all the way to his shop and to also get me out of the road in a safe spot. I began to call a couple shops to get estimates on the repairs and started to cry because i couldnt afford any of them danny told me not to worry hed fix my car and make sure i got back home safe i was told to pay what i could and not to worry... danny you are the best words cannot express how thankful i am for everything you did for me that friday. I was told mechanics are all out to take your money and are not honest, well NOT true. My car by the way is still running like a champ thanks to you.... i would like to thank you and your crew for your great work and big hearts and awsome skills. You are truly one of a kind.
We have a two year old daughter. When it came time to put her into daycare, I wasn't sure what to do or where to go. I was worried, scared and anxious all at the same time. The staff at ELC is not only helpful, but eased all of my anxiety by letting me know that my child would be taken care for while I was away at work. Their rates are affordable and their staff is amazing. I get daily reports about how my daughter is doing and her progress has been amazing. I really appreciate all of the support I'm given as well. I wasn't sure about how to potty train my kiddo, but I was given advice and help in order to do so. With ELC help, my daughter hardly had accidents and her training went by quickly. At two years old, she was potty trained 100%. We didn't even have accidents at night which was great! I can't sing the praises of this Child Development center enough. It was a blessing to find them and I'm more than thankful that I did.
My child has attended Panda Bear Academy for 3years now she was the first and only baby at that time. I wouldn't trust any other center or staff with my princess. Miss Hope is heaven sent! Miss Hope treats all the kids as if they were her own, we love Miss Hopey as the kids call her. My daughter ask for Miss Hope on the weekend , what more can you ask for. As far as respect I have never ever witness the staff being rude to the kids or parents. Mr. Jaime and Miss Hope hands down can run the center with eyes closed and not miss a beat. This center cooks hot meals for the kids around the clock, my daughter loves the food, and is very proud to say grace before eating. This center is always clean and the staff always upbeat. Good job keep up the great work. No words can describe how it feels to find THE day care. It's a perfect fit.
I am glad that my children attend Childhood Seasons Learning Academy. The facilty is clean, and the staff are friendly. My baby goes there all day, and my older child attends after school. My baby is well taken care of and loved! The teachers are so happy to see her when I drop off in the morning! I liked that they welcomed me calling to check on her the first couple of weeks that she attended. I also appreciate the communication through the caregivers and the daily sheet that is sent home every day that tells me about her day. My older child wants to go to the center & that says a lot to me! I am impressed that they have a degreed teacher working with my child after school that is able to help him with his homework. I am thankful to have peace of mind while I am at work during the day!
We moved to this area over the summer and defiantly are out of our comfort zone. We choose this daycare because it is small and family orientated. We have a special needs baby and they have done nothing but care for him like he is there own child. There is not one daycare out there that does not have there own faults. I do not believe that any one intended on leaving a child alone. But if you want to get down to it the day care closes at 6pm. Why did the parents wait until 6:45pm to come and get there child. The workers at this daycare would have stayed no matter what but you have to communicate with them. So before anyone passes judgement on the daycare look at the whole story. I would not take my children anywhere else. They have been nothing but kind and accepting of my children from day one.
