There is poor leadership and some of the staff are very unprofessional. They also lack consistent staffing for the amount of children in the class rooms.
Horrible place. I enrolled my 2 1/2 year old baby and in only 3 I could see how unprofessional and inhuman this people are. We thought that Kiddie U was the right place and after 3 days we realized that this place is awful. They left my baby cry and put him on a chair for 45min. after picking him up from daycare he had a swollen ear. If you are looking for a loving, caring, secure, learning experience for your child Kiddie U is not the place.
My child came to this daycare at age 3 for 1 year and since we moved she now only comes for their summer program. The daycare reminds me of a bigger home daycare. I think its great for a child under 6 since they are a small facility, very affordable and do not go on any field-trips, but staff do their best to make it fun by having water days, dancing days, and special treat days. The kids wear a uniform, the lunches are good and Ms. Jeanette and Ms. Edna are so attentive and loving to all the children. If your kids do not speak Spanish they will pick up many Spanish words as well.
Such a loving Director! This facility has had nice renovations recently. Stop by and check it out!
I write this not as a parent but as a former employee, I saw the things that don't come up on the camera's inside of the classrooms. Things parents miss when they're working or busy with life. I write this to give parents out there a sense of the fear that settled into my soul after I got hired to work in the same daycare my little brother had previously been attending. At first Sat child in Waterford Lakes seemed like a wonderful place for kids to be, that is until I started on my first day. I worked in almost every classroom, I was a floater (meaning I go where I am needed but mainly I stayed in the infant room, toddler rooms, and the 3-5 age room)I will keep the names of students and teachers out of this review for their own safety. I have seen teachers shout directly into the ears of children, talk poorly about a specific child IN FRONT OF THAT CHULD as if he wasn't in the room. I have witnessed teachers throwing students belongings (including clothing) into a garbage can that was filled with dirty diapers, food, and trash. I have witnessed children hit their heads and cry and instead of the teacher comforting the student the poor child would hear "well if you weren't fidgeting, you wouldn't have hit your head, now go to sleep." I have seen teachers pull and yank kids off the floor from their arms so hard one day a child had to go to the nurse because his arm was in so much pain. I have seen teachers lay their hands on kids because they (and I kid you not) 'took their shoes off during lunchtime'. Babies as young as 3 months old get ignored while crying because 'they just want attention.' The list goes on honestly. I would go home crying so many days because I did not have it in my heart to be hard on these wonderful kids who honestly were the loves of my life. My heart aches for them almost everyday and I hope they are doing well.My point is you can do what you like with your child but I warn you to really think before you drop them off and drive away.
Neighborhood kids Academy is the best daycare I have yet to find, my four-year-old and my one year-old absolutely adore their teachers and the daycare… It is very family oriented, clean and organized. Since we've moved, I drive an hour everyday just to take them because I wouldn't take them anywhere else! Highly recommended.
This is not only my daughters first year in a daycare facility but my first experience as well. She is enrolled in the VPK wraparound and TRUST ME I researched all facilities in the area and my hard work paid off! (Thanks Ms. Kayla for answering ALL my questions!!) My daughter attends the Landstar Location. I love the curriculum choice, ABC Mouse time and ESPECIALLY the capability to "peek" on her during the day. Even if I call about a concern i witnessed it is handled at that moment. Also, I LOVE that she has to wear uniforms and she does too! All around ALL the staff are awesome and we are so happy to be apart of the Kids R Kids Landstar Family.
Just horrible! They don't care about the kids! They don't care about having a parent teacher relationship! They don't care about being professionals! They don't care to let a parent know about a students behavior or reiterating the situation! Just very unprofessional! I have my full review on Yelp if you guys want details!!! Unfortunately yellow pages will not let me post it due to it being so long! But I'm glad to say my son WILL NO LONGER GO TO THAT SCHOOL!!!! All the director did was give me excuse after excuse and excusing my son's teacher of her wrong doings! And it didn't help the fact i was standing outside the school waiting to talk to the director face to face for 20 mins! Don't take your child there! Because they don't even pick up the phone!
The staff are loving and caring and great with providing a quality learning environment for my children
I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Peek A Boo learning center. They have taken great care of my son for years now and the staff is very professional and very pin point when it comes down to the care and teaching of my child. The place is EXTREMELY CLEAN and he really enjoys being thers. Thumbs up!!!!!
