I got a review. So my daughter started Kids Colors Learning Center at the beginning of 2015. It was amazing the first couple of days leaving her. Then all of the sudden, she starts to cry every single morning. I am thinking she is just adjusting... On a good note, she IS learning a lot, she learned to write her name and last name and pretty much all the letters of the alphabet in less than 3 months, also all the numbers! she really is learning a lot! so yes, for learning the academics is a really good school. Now, something is off with this school my daughter is still sad to stay in the mornings. I am not so sure that she absolutely likes her main teacher, she however likes other teachers and she mentions them lovingly, so I am thinking not all of them are nice or loving. I have tried to show up and see what they are up to a couple of times in the afternoon and I have found some teachers screaming (in a really mean way) at the smaller kids (not mine) but to other (smaller kids) I have involved myself with the teachers as much as I can, talking to them in the morning and in the afternoon so that I know what my daughter is doing all day. This way, they open up to me, yes I will admit that they are not the easiest to talk to. I not sure if this is business policy, but I only interested in my child so I try my best to get involved. Also, I can’t go to all the events, so I send my mother or step mother to go in my stead and make sure the check everything out, and so far there has only been one mean comment towards a little girl that cries a lot. I hope it is not like that all the time as this comments by their only teachers and caregivers creates the perfect excuse for bulling and for low self-esteem in kids that are just starting to explore life. Also, I would say that just one or two teachers speak English, so when my daughter started I was told she didn't know how to speak correctly, then I realized they were referring to Spanish language, well my daughter is not fluent in Spanish, as English is her first language and she only speaks a few basic words in Spanish. They also have a good schedule for the kid’s activities, everything is organized. They read a lot to the kids my daugther’s favorite activity and they have a wall from top to bottom of books that she absolutely loves. Regarding the school building itself. This building is a stand alone building, meaning there are no other businesses attached to it, that’s a really nice commodity. It has high ceilings and very well lit with lots of high windows. The decoration is 100% educational and kids play friendly. The place is cleaned twice a day! Incredible! Yes, twice day it is sparkly clean everywhere and my daughter has gotten sick, but not as sick as I know other kids have in other schools. So I give them that much! It really is a super clean environment for your child. The building downfall is the Park right in front of it. It catches on fire every once in a while and you must run to get your kid and it won’t be easy getting there because they police will block all Eureka and any way of turning into 134 ave, so good luck there! The teachers are well trained for this chaos and they call you right away, they will make sure the kids are out of the school and out of danger, specially since there is a gas station right next door! There was an incident with one child found with LICE! And immediately all the teachers were checking the rest of the kids to make sure no one else had it. Right now, they are on summer camp. My daughter is still sad in the mornings and super happy in the afternoon when I pick her up. I get the whole attachment issue, but I would think it would be over by now… but I am hoping it gets better. I wish they had cameras in this school the Montessori schools. I am really obsessed with my child, but what good parent isn’t? I hope this review helps you.
Go to Acadekids and check for yourself .... the place is super clean , the installations are great and secure, the atmosphere is great for the children and the teachers are really sweet with every single children in front of you and behind your back. (believe me I always check the cameras from my office) In reference to the Director Mrs.karen, She always receive my 3 year old with a smile on her face; on ocassions when droping or picking up our child we talk to her about our concerns and she always give us great advice, she is not just sitting at the front desk asking for payments (like you see in some other places) she is really involved and know the children very well, of course when talking to Mrs.karen we don't pretend that she spend the rest of the day with us. There are children to take care off, more parents with their concerns or questions and god knows what other responsibilities she has on her position. I want to say that when we are home just to mention the name Acadekids, Mrs.karen or Mrs.Sooner my 3 year old inmediate reaction is to put a big smile on her face. Moreover; when droping her at Acadekids she just want to run inside the place and this facts give me and my wife nothing but peace of mind. Eloy Urbaez A Happy Parent !!!
I have 2 of my boys currently enrolled at a Sunny Start Preschool II, one in their VPK class with Ms. Madelyne and the other in PreK3 with Ms. Evelyn and i have to start by saying that my husband and I are truly happy with both teachers. They have a great heart and care for each and every child in their class same with Teacher Reyna from PreK2 which I've also had the pleasure in meeting since she was my youngest's teacher when they were VIKIDS last year. It is an Excellent school full of caring teachers and our boys are thriving. They have an excellent curriculum in which my boys are learning and being prepared for next year. They have lots of fun activities for their weekly themes and holidays to help kids learn. I feel they are very safe when I check into the secure biometric system and we are always greeted by smiling faces including the director Ms. Cristy Feliu. Couldn't be happier with their open door policy. I love that they keep us updated with daily reports and pictures using the Tadpole app which sends alerts directly to my phone. My boys are happy and like attending school which is what matters most; couldn't imagine having my boys anywhere else. We are looking forward in enrolling my 1 year old in the next upcoming year. :)
Hello my name is Tiffany Muniz and I am Nathans mom. I can honestly say that I have no issue with this preschool what so ever. Any time I have had a question or concern, the school has been readily available to me at all times. Karen and Georgeth both helped me out in the past with an issue that caused me a great deal of trouble (personal issue) .... And before Karen there was America, who was amazing! And I've had my son since he was 3 months who is now 3 years old. He has had his share of minor children play incidents (bumps and bruises), but he is taken care of and I am notified immediately. Has there ever been a crazy incident ... NO! Nathan is always happy to go to school and I am AMAZED with how much he knows, at 2 years old he knows the alphabet, how to count in both english and spanish, recognizes animals and shapes, and knows how to say them both in english and spanish. As well as knows to spell his name. This only demonstrates how great his teachers are. I totally trust Acadekids with the wellbeing and safety of the most precious being in my life, my child. I rate this preschool an A.
I am a full time worker in need of child care services for my son. During the year of 2005 I needed a child care provider for my 3 month old son. I was very fortunate to have found Tiny Steps Daycare. I met with the director to view the facility and I was extremely impressed with the friendly and warm environment that was being provided for the children attending the daycare center. When I leave my son I know he is in good hands. They provide a safe and secure place for the children. They offer many educational activites, as well as healthly meals and snacks. The kindness and patients of the staff is outstanding. The center is always kept clean and organized. My son is 6 year old now and continues to attend Tiny Step Learning Center newly opened K thru 3rd grade. Overall, I would definitely recommend this child care provider for any other family in need of daycare and school services. Their background experience and strong abilities to connect with children, they can definitely offer everything a family would be looking for in a provider.
I can't think of a better place for my kids. I have twins and they have been part of The bright days preschool since they are three months old. It is our second house, and I totally trust everyone in there to take care of my girls. I owe a lot to that school, being a full-time med student they made possible for my kids to be fully potty trained at age 2, they have also been very flexible with all our needs. My kids already know how to write their names, numbers from 0 to 30, draw, dance, and their social skills are amazing. Everyone is so impressed with their education, and all I can say is that we owe a lot to the bright days. Oleidis, the owner, her mother(who takes care of one of the facilities) and all the staff. They are our family, and we will always be in debt with them. My girls enjoy every day at school, and that is an amazing feeling as a parent, to know that we have chosen the right place for them to spend 7 hours per day. We totally love The bright days, and every single parent I had to refer in 3 years is extremely happy too.
i am a grandma who use to pick up my granddaughter at that school at three, I do believe that the teachers are excellent. I share the same feeling that the review below. It is a pity that the leadership does not feature the same condition. My granddaughter was being bullying by a boy that is six, she is four, Sometimes, she arrived at home with some crashes in the knee and one of her hand, and told us who was, her parents were to talk to Christina, the principal, to their surprise, she denied everything, she said that the girl was making it up completely. My daughter had to take the girl out of the school for good. We extremely regret that decision, because she was learning many important subjects and teachers were great and very capable pedagogically speaking, However, when the leadership is poor, bullying grows, I have been a scholar in this matter, and with a principal like this pretending that nothing happens is yet more terrible. Referring to the food, I have seen that it is true, some of the items I saw come from ALDI.
My son has been attending Mini Me for almost a year now. He is 2 years and 3 months and knows how to count on his own from 1-10 in both English and Spanish, basically can sing the alphabet, knows ALL animals and their sounds and knows more Spanish than my Husband and I, it's amazing! I love this school and highly recommend it. The teachers are very caring and attentive, and the director and her staff are always very pleasant and helpful. The facility is always very clean (bathrooms, kitchen, classrooms and outside play area). Only down-fall, my son is always catching a cold or some type of cooties, but that's the case with any daycare environment and the age, not Mini Me Academy's fault. I know he will eventually build up an immunity. Still I rather him learn and interact with children his age than stay at home during the most important toddler learning years and gain nothing....after all you can't keep your children in a bubble =) Thanks Mini Me Academy-You're doing a fantastic job with Justin! ~Justin's Mom & Dad
Since the very first day, we knew that Kendall TLE was the right place for our 18 month old son to begin his first social experience away from home. With an amazing team and a rich learning program, our baby enjoys different experiences every day. I can tell that my son enjoys every day at TLE along to his lovely teacher. He has learned new things like songs, new words, phrases and sign language. We could not be happier with Kendall TLE Center and its team. Desde el primer día que visitamos el TLE de Kendall, supimos que era el lugar que estábamos buscando para que nuestro niño de 18 meses comenzara su experiencia fuera de casa. Con un excelente equipo y un amplio programa de aprendizaje, nuestro niño vive variadas experiencias todos los días. Puedo decir, que mi niño disfruta cada día junto a su amorosa maestra y sus compañeritos de aula. Ha aprendido nuevas cosas, desde canciones, nuevas palabras hasta lenguaje de seña que utiliza también en casa. No podemos estar más felices con el equipo de TLE de Kendall!
I was extremely impressed with The Learning Experience in dowtown Miami. When looking for daycares for my 1 and 3 yr old, I take into consideration several factors that will enhance my children's growth developmentally as well as emotionally. This school not only has top of the line technology in their classrooms, but it also has a thorough curriculum which ensures me that I will be leaving my kids at a learning center, rather than just a daycare. The classrooms are inmaculate, with brand new furnishings, interactive play/learning areas, and individual bathrooms. The playgrounds are just amazing! One of the 2 playgrounds has miniature "real life" locatins, such as a grocery store, fire station, diner, etc. and a slide that leads children to a pool filled with small balls... a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e-! I am looking forward to having my kids attend this center, where attention to detail has definitely been a priority for the owners. Loved this place and can't wait to be part of The Learning Experience family :)
