Horrible Child Care – The owner/director is catty and gossips with her staff and parents about other parents and children that attend her center. This is not only very unprofessional but tacky and immature. They have left children on the buses in the parking lot in the middle of the summer for who knows how long and other parents have found them and rescued them from the possibly deadly situation. This has happened more than once and the owner Laurie just covers it up like it never happened. There are only a handful of staff members who are actually qualified to teach children most of her staff are high school students or young and inexperienced and not prepared to educate children but merely able to babysit them and for the price you are charged for tuition that is ridiculous. If the director knows a parent or state officials are coming in she will instruct the teachers to act a certain way and put on a "show" to impress the prospective parent or inspector. There should be no act the staff should ALWAYS be able to impress a parent or inspector. The children are fed the same thing day in and day out and are not fed enough and are rushed through their meals. For breakfast they have a choice of cereal, donuts, or waffles, no fruit, or meat just sugar and more sugar. The staff often leaves the children unattended to gossip with their friends. My child no longer attends Kids Playce nor will she ever attend again and if I can help it neither will anyone I know. Our children are precious and deserve the absolute best care imaginable and the owner of Kids Playce is more interested in money and a profit than the care of children.
Not a fan at all -- My son went here and hated it! He was bullied and came home with bruises all over his shins saying two or three older kids would kick him. He told the teachers and was made to sit alone for taltteling, so I addressed it with the director who dismissed my concerns as "boys being boys". At first I felt that she may be right, but when summer came and more and more bruises appeared on my son, I withdrew him and he started at Texas Sports Ranch in Crosby. It's a good drive away, but TOTALLY worth it!! He loved it, and the bruises dissapeared bc he wasn't bullied. I feel horrible for not listening to my own child and thinking the director of Kid's Place had a clue -- she SO doesn't. Needless to say he hasn't been and will never be back to Kid's Playce. Aside from that, the facility is clean and organized, but the staff is not loving, friendly, or nurturing. Also, if you want to talk with the staff/director forget trying to talk in person -- You should call instead. (If you go in person you'll wait 15 minutes for them to get off the phone and then be interrupted 15 times by other phone calls.) They constantly act like the people on the phone are more important than those standing before them. On that note, when you go to pick up your child, be prepared to wait 15 minutes for them to notify his/her teacher that you are waiting -- they have to get off the phone first bc apparently they don't know what a hold button looks like. I stay home now, so I can't reccomend other daycares in the area -- I just know that this one is absolutely awful.
