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.

I have had my children at Little Shoes Learning Center for over three years. I have never had a problem with the teachers/staff. The facility is always clean, welcoming, professional and it has a home-environment feel. There is always communication between the center and home. Children are sent home with daily sheets which report diaper changes/bathroom usage-for potty training, daily activities (what is being taught-letter C, Number 9 etc.), items of need (extra clothes, diapers, etc.). Additionally, parents can follow along on the Center's private Facebook page, where pictures of your children can be viewed (permission from parents is obtained prior to pictures being posted). There are 3 large storm shelters- this is a necessity in Moore, OK. The children are always engaged in activities at every age. Infants finger paint and bring home adorable parent keepsakes. Older kids work on letters, numbers, colors and skills needed for preschool. All children are learning various skills while playing and the children are introduced to different languages.To respond to a previous post, my children have come home with bites, scrapes, bruises from falls, etc. but each incident was documented and I was informed each time and given complete information on what happened. There has been times where the teacher on-duty did not have all of the information I was asking for but I was able to get in contact with the teacher that was on-duty to get the answers I requested. Video cameras do show each of the rooms so that incidents can be reviewed if necessary. Kids are going to be kids; part of growing, learning, and playing involves getting a few unavoidable bumps here and there. The teachers are not neglectful and they do care for the children they are watching.Little Shoes Learning Center is my children's home away from home. They are comfortable, learning, socializing, and being cared for by loving people. I go out of my way to take my girls to this Center- I won't change.
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!
My Daughter went to Cornerstone Child Development for over two years and we never had any problems and were very happy with the way she was treated there. It's hard to read such a bad review and to be quite honest, if this child really did get out and run down the street, that tells me a lot about how this child is probably being raised at home. Question: Is it the daycare or the child's parenting that really caused this type of behavior. All it takes is a few bad reviews form some irate (over the top, over exaggerated) parent to ruin a good daycares name and reputation. I can tell you that if this really happened, it was a fluke and I'm sure there is two sides to the story. Go and check this place out for yourself and then go and look at other places. I'm sure you will pick cornerstone over the others. This place is ran by people who work very hard and probably work a little too much at times. I know the owner very well from our experience there and she is a very hard worker and good person with great character. I would recommend this place to any new family starting out in the daycare world. You will not be disappointed. Five star daycare. Remeber: don't believe everything you read. Do your own research. Go there and and see the place and that will answer all of your questions and concerns.
We have found Village Montessori to be an extremely special place that has helped our little girl grow, learn, and thrive. She is a very strong-willed child and can be very challenging, and we know that not every place is a good fit for her, but VM has been the right place. We moved from out of state and enrolled her at age 20 months, and two years later, she is beyond her years in education and is making great progress in all other areas. This is because the director and her teachers have taken the time to get to know her personality and to recognize the best ways to interact with her to embrace her strong-will and use it to help her learn how to be a caring friend and a good and patient student. Her teachers and our family have maintained continual and constructive communication, and we feel like our daughter is supported in the same way at school as she is at home. We can't say enough about VM, and we look forward to sending our next child there when she is old enough.
I sent my son to this facility for approximately 3 months, he is a toddler. I had very mixed feelings the whole time. Some of the workers are fantastic! They have wonderful personalities and interact with the kids. Other workers were very poor....they had mean looks on their faces as if they hated their jobs. They did not greet me and did not actively interact with the children. Cleanliness is somewhat of an issue because at times there was a urine smell. They rarely took my son outside on nice days which was sad. They did not change his diaper regularly enough. The final straw was when he went 6+ hours with no diaper change! While it is affordable, I would rather pay more and have my child cared for in a better fashion.
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!
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.
I wouldn't take my child anywhere else. The facility always smells good and is clean. That is rare. The director is so kind and very understanding. My child has learned a lot and is happy since he's been going here. I would definitely recommend this daycare to anyone.
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.
