Melissa A’s review could not be further from the truth. My son is 2.5 years old and has been at Primrose in SW OKC since 9/2016. I have seen nothing but exponential growth in his understating of the world around him. Comparing his development to his friends in “in-home” daycare's or other childcare facilities is night and day.Primroses’ disciplinary strategies do not sit children in “time-out” all day. While they do utilize time out as a disciplinary strategy, the times are age appropriate, and there communication both during and after the discipline. I can vouch for this personally as my son has both required time outs and has been on the receiving end of other children’s time outs. Primrose is a structured school but they also have teachers there with several years of early childhood experience. They cannot, and should not have children doing whatever they want whenever they want. Your child will not just “sit/listen/perform” but the day is scheduled allowing children to know what is coming next and what to expect. My son has had classmates who have stayed behind longer and/or moved up earlier to accommodate their milestones. They produce a lots of art projects, along with class games and activities, to showcase the day’s/week’s/month’s learning objectives. The idea that the teachers are making these projects is nonsensical. Not only do parents have access to the “tadpoles” app, where pictures of their children making the projects are posted, but the volume of art would be overwhelming for the staff to make themselves.Primrose is an expense school, however it is the best early childhood development program in the OKC metro. This garners the higher price; the facility is new, clean and modern; the meals are balanced, healthy and nutritious; the staff is highly qualified, kind and caring; the curriculum is engaging, nuanced, and creative. Quality comes at a price, and I believe that my son’s care and education is worth that price. More to write length restricted

DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILD HERE. The teachers here are not educated enough to deal with children. The 3 year old classroom has gone through 3 teachers in the two and a half months my son has gone here. They are constantly over on ratios, and apparently allow infants to be in the same room with 3 year olds because we got "talked to" about my son apparently hitting a BABY in the eye with a lego. Why was there a baby in the room with him in the first place? They couldn't give me an answer. Another child was cussing and hitting other kids, and the teacher told me "we don't write up reports unless another parent sees." Good to know. My son went to school perfectly fine, I picked him up around 5:15pm and he had a busted and swollen lip. NO ONE could tell me wat happened and kept trying to put the responsibility on another teacher who was already gone for the day. These teachers do not pay attention to the children at all. I picked my son up early and they were playing outside so I stopped at the window to observe. Three teachers were in a huddle talking on one side of the playground while the kids were doing whatever and wherever. I watched another child push a littler girl off a tricycle and not one of those teachers in the huddle budged. We've picked up my son multiple times with wet underwear and shorts because he had an accident because NO ONE was paying attention. They are obviously not observant either because they didn't bother to change his clothes. There was one occasion where there was DRIED poop on his butt and in his underwear. Not a small poop either. The fancy "precious status" app they rave about during your tour... yeah it's great...if they would ever use it. We are rarely notified of anything during the day and they never take pictures. We also never get any artwork or papers from them. Because of this we feel like he just goes to this school and plays around all day. No learning involved. A curriculum is non-existent.
great daycare great employees. convenient..for me.my kids enjoy it. They also have head start which is great.
WE absolutely loved this center when our children were there. They are now school age and with a sitter for the summer but I will continue to take them for breaks when school starts and also next summer!
My son attended SW Primrose and it’s a parenting decision I truly regret. My son received mediocre care and often times spent his days in “time-out”. Majority of the classroom teachers have no credentials let alone any formal childhood education training, If your child doesn’t fit the mold of listening/sitting/performing tasks as directed this is NOT the school for you. There is constant transition from room-to-room, with a HIGH teacher turnover. Every few weeks, there was a new teacher in my sons room. And just when my son would get comfortable in his assigned classroom, he was moved up to make space for other children – even if he wasn’t ready!Aside from the front counter staff, teacher moral is very low. This low moral is passed along to the children in the classroom. In one classroom my son’s teacher expressed to me multiple times that she felt my two-year old had ADD/ADHD and would express frustration when he wouldn’t listen and/or obey. I later discovered that my completely NORMAL son had a slight speech delay. Instead of working with the parents to have a parent paid speech therapist come onsite, Primrose decided that my son wasn’t a good fit for the school.While there is a curriculum calendar, please know that the teachers will send home artwork/activities that the teachers complete themselves. Perfectly cut circles; perfectly potted flowers; perfectly glued sticks. Be aware that the teachers have clear favorites; often the favorite children have parents that work at Primrose. So unless you plan on working at Primrose, I strongly recommend trusting another center for your child’s development. In addition to the outrageous tuition, Primrose will definitely let you know when Teacher Appreciation week is. They will “push” down your throat “gift” ideas that you should bring to the teachers every day. Maybe if the owners spent more time getting teacher moral up themselves, they wouldn’t have to rely on parents buying gifts to keep their staff.
The staff at Kid's Village is capable and caring. My child loves to get to go to school. She is three years old and is learning many of the basic primary skills. I appreciate the opportunity for her to learn how to make friends and play appropriately.
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.
