The staff at Pee Wee Ranch is excellent--Our oldest daughter has been attending Pee Wee since she was two and our youngest started at 4 months old--They are now 5 and 3. Our children love their teachers and are excited about going to school and seeing their friends! The children participate in activities that foster learning & development and even bring home some of their crafty creations. One of my favorite times of year is during Mothers & Fathers' Day--the kids bring home thoughtful messages to show us how much they care. I could go on and on. Pee Wee Ranch is hand down an A+ childcare facility.

From Business: Kids Ark Development Center has provided families of Seminole, Orange and Lake County with quality child care service for children ages o to 5 years since 2004. I…
My son has been at Metro Kids for 2 years now and we could not be happier with the quality care these children receive. The teachers are wonderful and take interest in each child individually. The collaboration of curriculums between a preschool curriculum a Sunday School curriculum allow my son to receive the quality and developmental education he needs as well as the Christian moral and values we want instilled in our son. It saddens me how ONE negative review can tarnish the image of such a great place because of hot tempered reviewers. Metro Kids is a great place for children, just ask my son.
Response to the bad review:Metro Kids Learning Center is a small christian family atmophere preschool. We have never had an issue with ratio issues. However,if we are short staffed for any reason I, myself(director) always make sure to assist the teachers in any way to keep us in compliance. I am proud to say our staff is very dedicated to the children here at our school. Many of our children have been at our center since birth and stay with us until they graduate from preschool. I was recently informed of this bad review and I must say I was saddened to see this paticular parent write such horrible things. She had her children in our care for three years. We absolutley adored her children and miss them very much. I have, and always will, address concers from the parents immediately. This incident that she mentioned is extremly exaggerated, and was dealt with as soon as I was informed. Looking at the original time frame she posted this review, her children remained in our care for over a month after posting. However,I do undrestand people get upset and say or do things later they regret. Since she mentions ratios, I would like to clarify DCF state guidlines. 2year olds have a ratio of 11 children to 1 teacher. 3year olds have a ratio of 15 children to 1 teacher. As per her complaint, you can clearly see we were far from being out of ratio. Our school is monitored by the Deparment of children and families, Church Of God, Seminole Coalition, and the Food Program. In which our reviews has always been in good standing, any issues that may have occured are dealt with and corrected. I would like to say I wish her children the very best. and hope they are doing well. GOD Bless
They have a really bad teacher to student ratio. Also, I walked into a classroom and there were 7, 2-3 year olds all by them selves. No teacher in sight. I waited a couple of minutes, then looked for the teacher and she was in the kitchen making breakfast. very disappointing. Also, Despite what the post above says my children do not attend this center anymore. I immediately pulled them out for their safety.
I was VERY disappointed with the previous review. I have been at Metro Kids for over 5 years and have never seen any of the children left alone, let alone 2-3 yr. olds. Even more disappointing is that the parent who left that review still attends the school. I find it morally wrong to mislead others about this school simply because you are having a bad day! With that being said, Metro Kids is an excellent daycare/pre-school. I have had 3 children attend from birth thru VPK, with my youngest still in attendance there. The teachers are wonderful and very knowledgeable about the appropriate developmental stages of the children, which is very important to me. Any questions or concerns I have are immediately addressed. The director Kim is also an excellent educator and does an amazing job running the school. My son looks forward to going to school every day and I would recommend Metro Kids to all parents looking for a warm, loving educational environment for their children.
Friend's Preschool Rocks!My Children have had Ms. Friend's love and warmth since 2008. Her passion and desire for the children to learn is so obvious! My kids have learned so much and I owe it to her staff and the preschool for all their work and values they have instilled in my children. We will truly miss our children attending Friend's Preschool and hope other parents have an experience as unforgettable as we had! :)
My daughter attends Friends Pre-School Academy and is thriving there. The owner and staff are superb! They are very professional, engaging and creative. The school is clean, neat and safe. We are thrilled to have found this school and are very pleased. I would highly recommed the school and give it 5 stars!!!
