Well since I'm off today since I didn't get a notification that the day care would be closed. I'm going to leave a 2 star here because I can't depend on this daycare. This is the second time this has happened. You can't just not show up whenever you feel like it, like that Saturday I had work and tried dropping them off. Yesterday my dad had went to pick them up and nobody had told him either..(I would like to keep my job.)I will be taking further action to get this fixed.
Kindercare has been a great place for our daughter to learn, play, and grow. The staffs are very friendly and she is very attached to them.
My little man has gone here for a couple years and he loves it.
My child attended the school for about a year and a half. The 2 year old room is amazing, and the teachers there are incredible. However; once the new director was hired things went downhill fast. You could tell that the teachers were unhappy because they were no longer as nice to our children as they once were. I also complained to the director on several occasions that my child would complain about being thirsty and that they were not offered water throughout the day. This issue was never fixed. Every day after pickup my child was so thirsty that they would drink an entire bottle of water before we even made it out of the door. My child also got food poisoning while attending. I was called to come pick her up. Her teacher advised me that 5 children had been sent home right after eating lunch. When I approached the director she lied to me and told me that my child was the only one. I do not know why the teacher, who is the one who was with the sick kids, would lie to me. The director was obviously more concerned with herself and the centers liability then she was with the children’s health. My child’s doctor confirmed it was food poisoning. The teachers in the 3's were also very rude. I would hear them scream at the children when I walked into the center. They of course were nice once they saw a parent. My child was afraid to go to school. I got my child out of there as soon as possible. Four months later I received a letter in the mail from a collections company stating that the director informed them that I owed the center $25. I was furious. Never was I informed of any such late payment in person. They obviously had my number and could have called me. Once speaking with the director I was informed that it was a mistake, however she had already sent it to collections and it will now be a smear on my otherwise great credit. She is an awful director. She will lie to your face and does not handle the business properly. I would never suggest anyone take their kids there. My child’s last week there also happened to be 4 of the other kids last week too. All of the parents were fed up and left.
This is a fantastic school! Both of my children have attended here and I would never consider sending them anywhere else! The teachers make sure the children are always having a wonderful time while adhering to high educational standards. They encourage parent involvement, have wonderful caring staff, and always strive to personalize your child's educational experiences. My children were excited every single day to wake up and go to school!
Glad my daughter attends this school! Her vocabulary is incredible for a 3 year old and is learning a solid foundation for her future school years.
Fabulous school! My boys started at 18m and have loved every minute of it. The teachers and staff are amazing.
It only takes a week to notice a difference in development from a traditional daycare. The one on one teacher time is great. My 4 year old was learning basic math and reading skills before pre-k. Well worth the cost of tuition if you care about your child's early education.
Excel Learning Center & Childcare is an exceptional day care facility. As the mother of 3 children that attended the daycare over 10 years ago, I was astonished to hear my daughters who are now 15, 14, and 10 reciting the Excel Creed just the other day and encouraging one another that they can "Do anything they put their minds to...". Excel Learning Center & Childcare set the tone for their education and prepared them well beyond what I would have expected in the pre-school program, propelling my then Kindergarten daughter into an accelerated program and preparing my pre-school daughter beyond all the other pre-schoolers in her class when we relocated to another state. I can't speak enough good things about Excel and I believe their longevity in this business, the staff that consistently works hard to provide the best care for our children and their exceptional program make Excel Learning Center & Childcare the BEST choice for your childcare needs. I thank God for the staff at Excel Learning Center and specifically those teachers and administrators that have made an impact on my children. Ms. Cain, Mrs. Candice, Mrs. Barbara, Ms. Von, and last but not least Mrs. Traylor because without her, Excel Learning Center would never have been able to impact my life and the lives of my children. Hats off to you all!
Absolutely horrible operation! Starting at the door, the interior smells like old food and body odor and everything you touch feels greasy. They are very understaffed and the staff they do have are overwhelmed. My son was bitten by another child who was described as a “known biter” and we were told we were lucky because she had injured other children much worse. My son has been in daycare since he was 9 months old and loves going to school, but begged and cried “no school” when we would pull into the drive at Kindercare. If you are considering Kindercare in Midwest City, I would urge you to stop by unannounced and take a careful look at the operation before you subject your little loved one to their substandard care.
