Great Place for Children – We have had our child in Kiddie Academy for over 2 years and we absolutely love it. The owners are always there and are always welcoming. As for the curriculum, it is prominently displayed all over the school. I also get a daily sheet to tell me what my child has done. My experience with Kiddie Academy has been wonderful. I highly recommend this 5 star facility. Please go and visit the school yourself. Don’t rely on some bitter person's negative comments.
Do Not Send your kids here – We sent our child here for about a year and a half and never really liked it, but the options were few and far between. We were told that there would be regular functions for parents to attend to make it feel like a community. In our time there, there was only one time this happened. The owners seem to put no time or money into improving or making it a welcoming place. We were also told that their was a curriculum that was used in the classrooms, but found little to no evidence of this. In fact, we overheard teachers say they were not doing any structured lessons because they were too hard or didn't have the necessary materials. The teachers regulary seemed unhappy and more than one complained to us about the environment. We have run into some of them in the community after leaving and continue to hear how poorly the facility is run. Our child was bitten several times and little was done and we sometimes heard children being yelled at. Our child never wanted to be dropped off and couldn't wait to leave at the end of the day (Please know she was happily in another daycare prior to this one and loves her new daycare as well.). We finally had enough of the chaotic environment with questionable disciplining techniques and went elswhere. Since enrolling at our new facility, several children have moved as well citing similar complaints. What a difference. If you are looking for high qualtiy day care please look elsewhere. You will be glad you did.
Great Center – My kids have only attended this center for about a month, but we love it. I checked out 8 centers in the area and the staff at Kiddie Academy was certainly the mose friendly and hands on with the kids. They greet my kids with such a warm and genuine welcome each morning as they arrive and give them great individual attention when they leave. The teachers always have a happy face one and always appear enthusiastic. It makes me feel bad about having put my kids in some of the other centers that they have been in. They also have internet viewing so I check on them throughout the day. I have checked on them often and have not seem anything alarming. I see them giving my kids individual attention regularly.
Stay clear if you care about your child- Horrible owners- just in it for the money – Our 2 year old was restrained without our permission. We only found out becuase my wife walked in. The teacher says she does that then re-directs. We reported our displeasure to owners and they dismissed it. Also in 1 week our child was bitten badly 2x. One of the incidents they waited more than 24 hours to notify us. Our Pedatrician was appaled. Then we asked what they were going to do and all they said was redirect. We made a suggestion to get the parents together so as a team work though the issue like a community and the owner deborah did not seem to care. We moved our child to another school and he did not have a single bite to him and seemed much happier since the teachers werre certified and knew what they were doing. At kiddie academy it seemed to always be chaotic.
